Yeah, that's the most impressive thing IMHO :wroom: proves Sabine's ring experience (no wonder after that many laps, wonder if she gets bored from time to time :hihihi: ) and the M5's capabilities. Can't imagine many cars that let you make the ring in 8:30 without breaking any sweat. Wonder whether Sabine deems the new M5 as involving (SMG?) as the old M5...

That's pretty amazing for at least 3 (maybe 4) people in the car. I'd like to see Horst's time of 8:13 for the full lap (not BTG). Don't know if a video of that exists though...

Good driver always look calm when they drive fast, but do not forgett.... this is NOT a full attack lap, not by a long shot......
This is a semifast lap by her standard. Do not forgett that you have to add 20+ sec to make this a full lap, meaning app 8min 50-55 lap. That is still very fast.

I don't even think this was semifast... in the old M5 Sabine managed a 8:16 in full attack mode, so with the new M5 she probably gets close to 8 minutes. So 8:50 seems to be a rather comfortable ride for Sabine, but that may be a necessary regulation from BMW's side to secure the health of the passengers and minimize any kind of risk.

Sounds like the time is ripe for another M5Board question and answer session with Sabine.
