Its those pesky rules than ban pretty much any advancement that makes a car go faster. Ground effects for example. 50% extra downforce is just the tip of the iceberg.

The 234km/h average and the few video clips popping up confirm my suspicions that Bernhard has a massive pair

With the downforce being generated more like massive neck muscles.

I just watched this again with no volume as I'm at a cafe. I know it's real time, but without volume it looks sped up it is so quick. How does the human brain keep up driving like this? ?

Hardly looks real. Same thoughts as firstone - had to keep checking the timer to make sure it wasn't being played in 1.5x. Video game stuff. Wow.

It is crazy fast down low with the elec motors dominating. I agree that it gives the impression of being sped up or of being in the millennium falcon jumping to light speed. 

How his brain keeps up is beyond me.

How perfect is the gearing.  It's pretty rare that it goes outside a 1,500rpm rev band.

I have watched this a few times now and it is just incredible, the intimate knowledge that he would have to have of the track just to do that time. The acceleration is amazing, to see how quick it got to top speed on the straight, wow.

I guess the world was saying the same as we are here when Bellof broke the record.

Got to agree - the limiting factor here is the weight of his balls slowing the car down. Hardly looks real its that quick.

"Bellof set his untouchable lap in qualifying for the race, so the only actual mention of his record 6:11.13 time was on a qualifying results page."

"As far as his record went, it took years for it to be spoken with the kind of reverence that it held even today, when the 919 Hybrid Evo bested it. To everyone that day, it was expected that the 956C would be faster than its predecessors, and just a routine thing to set a fast lap in practice. 

Porsche’s head of engineering at the time, Norbert Singer, told Jalopnik that Bellof’s record wasn’t even a planned thing. It was just normal work. When the time came through, some of Singer’s teammates asked it the time posted was a mistake, but that’s about as much attention as it got for years.

Its about time they throw out the rule books and let them at it. Could mean the hospitals would be full of nanny's having a heart attack at the risk involved. 

Check out the corner apex speed as this is far more important than straight line speed.
