There is an interesting article on the concept of perfection, at least as it is applied to the pace of an individual lap. http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2013/10/is-there-such-a-thing-as-a-perfect-lap/ So here is a poll to assess what CTA members think. Personally I don't think 'perfect' in the theoretical sense is possible. But if we define perfect as the top percentile (or even smaller) of a cars potential performance, then perhaps that is practically perfect? How we measure a driver's performance relative to a theoretical (and in some sense unknown) maximum is the reason why this is such a grey area for me. Perhaps Red Bull can team up with Google and construct an AI driver that they interface with their car, to test what the upper limit of performance really is given perfect response to input variables? Quite a complicated task, but you'd think the brainpower and tech exists to measure this.
