From memory Lowndes did a 2:11 in the V8, with Button doing a 2:18. I can’t find the article where I read the times but it was something along the lines of that.
Did anyone catch Button’s interview on RPM? He was saying that if he was given more laps he feels that he could have gone flat out from The Cutting right up to the Esses.. That would have been insane to see.. The laptime surely would have been below 1:40
