That is not to even get in the discussion of weather, track condition or tire condition/type. Point is the only lap time that is really relevant is the lap time you can turn in your car.
So, you track a Toyota Corolla then? Because lap times don't matter and it just matters what you can do in your car, right?

This whole discussion really confuses me. The results are the results. They aren't the sole, canonical source that determines M2C performance relative to the competition, but they're a data point.

Lots of folks seem really anxious to dismiss these results as irrelevant, but no one has provided any good reason why.

The M2C has proven its competence on this circuit on this day. Give it the credit it's due, or provide a credible counter argument.
