A short summary of that article:At the Nurbruring some seconds get lost due to the ESP inetracting and taking control eben though it was switched off.

On a short track such as Hockenheim the raising tyre temperature causes more and more understeer so that the lap time couldn´t be improved after the first lap.

Nevertheless the parise the agile handling and to power that could make it running fatser than the 250 km/h it is limited to. AMG is considering to remove the limiter on request so that it could hit the 300 km/h bareer.

No problem with the brakes but areodynamic could be improved, at 200 kp/h there´s no downforce at the front and rear axle.

Even though the understeer it can be comtrolled easily and stand 1.15g at the skidpad, the Pirelli P Zero tyres offers enough grip.

I hope BMW do the same for M5/M6 and future Z4M/M3, remove the speedlimit?
