    That's pretty much what you were asking, whether your well developed GP2 gets a break for running in F1.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    While the lower power car is almost always the underdog, a big power/weight difference between cars isn't quite as detrimental as it is in W2W. Usually the better developed car wins (Aside from a track like ACS where power trumps all). Take this year's WTAC Pro Am - the lowest weight and relatively lower power entry crushed the rest of the field of absurdly powerful cars. That car's (mighty mouse) greatest strength is in development time and the number of laps they've done at that very track.

    I kinda expected Moti and Ryan to argue that time attack rules are fine as they are.
    I disagree. As you were.

    Relatively is the key word here.
    The mouse might have given ~100 HP to Will's car, but it is far lighter (sub 1800 Lbs, IIRC) so power to weight ratio is likely still be in Rob's favor.
    Speaking of weight, the way the mouse was slowing for T2 was magical.

    Guess I didn't make myself clear, I don't think it's perfect but I do not agree with the PT style logic you seem to try and apply.

    I don't think they're great. The engine category is ridiculous. But they is what they is.

    Between the two, taking away the home track advantage I'd agree that the mouse is very likely the faster car. But that they BOTH beat the car that came to play with double their horsepower warms my heart.
