The Hockenheim time with UHP tyres would most likely improve by 1.3~2s so chances are the F360 would be a little quicker here, but like I said both tyres and brakes will heat up a lot quicker in the M3 so it will only hold on to the Ferrari on the first 1 or 2 laps.
The Sportauto list reads "Ferrari 360 Modena" without mentioning F1, hence I assume it was MT.

We know a time of 1:15.4 for the M3 on PS2 tires, so you're right, the 360 is slightly faster.
