    A short summary of that article:

    At the Nurbruring some seconds get lost due to the ESP inetracting and taking control eben though it was switched off.

    On a short track such as Hockenheim the raising tyre temperature causes more and more understeer so that the lap time couldn't be improved after the first lap.

    Nevertheless the parise the agile handling and to power that could make it running fatser than the 250 km/h it is limited to. AMG is considering to remove the limiter on request so that it could hit the 300 km/h bareer.

    No problem with the brakes but areodynamic could be improved, at 200 kp/h there's no downforce at the front and rear axle.

    Even though the understeer it can be comtrolled easily and stand 1.15g at the skidpad, the Pirelli P Zero tyres offers enough grip.
