The 01 FEELS a lot faster.. but lap time wise it simply is not.  What is true is that if you grab 10 random 01s, and 10 random 99s.. drove all 20 cylinders.. the 01 would be faster.

But grab the best 01 and the best 99 from those, and they will probably run similar lap times.  Anybody that says a 01 is 0.4 sec slower on a “normal” sprint track has  a TERRIBLE 99.

it feels faster because its torque curve is has a positive slope, vs flat.. so the 99 just hums along and the 01 keeps pulling harder and harder.

I think the 01 is better for racing, but they need to fix the reliability problems.
