    I agree with half of what you have written, grip is not in PP since tire choice doesn't affect PP, whether you use RS or CH tires I think PP remains fixed.

    As to rotation, yes, I suspect Polar Moment of Inertia is a factor, but not correctly applied; the smaller more compact cars do better with same PP, ie the Lotuses, GSX, XBOW, ZZII, these cars should score higher PP than they have,

    If that were TRULY the case, there should be no tire restrictions in races. Performance is performance. Sorry, but going from comfort to sports to racing tires most definitely affects a car's performance. Whether that change in performance suits the driver is another discussion.

    GT6 is a little different, I was talking about GT5, but yes, grip is part of the calculation, it's just not valued enough in terms of PP/grip unit. In GT5 the grip level was determined mainly by the chassis, although there were 3 hidden, dry track, tire compounds for each tire that varied longitudinal and lateral grip from the base tire. Tires are a different matter altogether and IMO it makes sense not to include tires in PP, it just adds too much variable into what is already a poor calculation.
