    Well wasn't expecting to see this one appear in game so I guess I will go Verstappening later on today since the car is provided and see how
    I place in this event.

    I wonder if some news about the game or any of the final content that was supposed to be added to sport will follow since we have had more news posts this month than since the last update...

    Out of curiosity, is it only the Honda powered car (Because Red Bull Honda) or is either permitted?

    Sadly there's no Tsunoda lap replays that I can find.

    The only replays I found are both Alex's and Max's which has the best lap and full replay.

    I’m PS4-less at the moment. Can someone tell me the lap times for Alex and Max?

    80odd KMs on Maxs' odo, 130odd on Alexs', whether they swapped over in between or not is unknown but I'd bet not.

    Absolute peak PD to not include their times in the event or the game anywhere. And to not offer a credit bonus for beating their times.

    Wow the front runners are using some crazy ninja skills on this one.. had some laps and feel like I'm able to drive it ok but damn.. still over a second off at the line and it feels like I'm going flat out!! :boggled::tup: Hats off to those guys just insane speed :bowdown:

    Here's my best so far I can probably scrape another half a sec at most in this rocket :scared:

    It is weird. I was looking everywhere for Max's time. I assumed we could chase their ghosts too like in the LH DLC but no there's nothing in game at all. The only way to find out their times is to watch the replays on the website :lol:

    I love the concept but the execution feels a little half assed.

    In my opinion this is a nice small event. The Super Formula car and Suzuka fit perfect.
    It´s hard to get some good lap times at the beginning but after understanding the car and it´s behaviour this is a lot of fun. I did in total about 600 km today to get a sub 1.38 time.
    Of course beating the two pros isn´t to hard for some "pro" GT Sport players. But I have to say that their lap times aren't to bad. At least Albons time isn´t something you do on your 2nd lap.
    I don´t know how much they practised for this but it will be interesting to see in two weeks how many GT Sport players are able to beat them.

    Here´s my run:

    According to Kudosprime Max spent 26h on gt sport and Albon 32h, quite serious for me ;)

    Considering the last chicane can be cut greatly and max didn't i wouldn't be too impressed by the top times, don't take them times seriouly cos most are doing that

    This doesn't necessarily mean they both sat down and actually played for. This could easily be some member of the production crew using the profile to make sure the rig works. That time driven statistic isn't to be taken as gospel.

    It was clear from the intro video that it was low effort overall, I don't think either driver was too bothered about this challenge, especially Max.

    Also possible but wouldn't be surprised if Alex hearing he will do timetrial against Max want to do it at least here better ;d F1 drivers are quite competitive

    Perfect, if they didn't take it serious, it let me a chance (a little one).

    Pretty obvious that they mailed it in here, I was hoping it would be more challenging to beat those times.
