McLaren Ring time

Don't know if this is repost. Despite its feedback not as thrilling as the 458, the unofficial ring time for the MP4-12C is 7:28 (vs. 7:38 for the 458).

Both times, of the Ferrari and McLaren are official times, as both done by Sportauto. However the Ferrari lapped the N-Ring by some other Ferrari driver under 7:30 min. The same goes for the McLaren. The official time of the LF-A is also 7:38 min. Some Toyota racer lapped the N-Ring in 7:22-7:20 min. The LF-A N-Ring Editin is officially 7 sec faster than the standard LF-A. Then came the unofficial LF-A N-Ring Edition laptime, that now is official and is 7:14 min.

Looks/Design/Technology I like the McLaren more. Emotion/Feel the Ferrari. But the true masterpiece is the LF-A.
