Subject: Ok, time to make some educated guesses...
Nice & anonymous, so you can say what you really think :)

I'll get the average of the votes, and then at the end of the season calculate the average poll differential to last year to see how close our guesswork is.

    In my case it's a totally uneducated guess :)

    Well I voted 2 seconds... but the only evidence I have for this is berniw's video of Corkscrew where he puts in a 1:12.37 lap, and in 2016 the poll position time for this track was was 2.10.xx oh no wait it was 2:09.044 -- I should have re-checked before making my choice in the poll (should have been 3 seconds), but I can't change it now!

    ATM my version of Mouse is probably more in the 6-9 seconds slower range, if it even manages any sort of clean lap. :)

    Cheers, Tim.

      Actually, looking at your video driving around Corkscrew, your tyres were still only in the 70 degrees range when you started the 3rd lap. It was more a case of them not being hot enough, rather than too hot. Its one of the shorter tracks (the others being e-track-1 and dirt-3) where I think this will be a problem, but there's plenty of longer ones where overheating will be a factor. Qualification is certainly more interesting this year - an all-out sprint for 3 laps won't cut it.
