Impressive, that is, until 4 or 5 laps later when the patient racers reel them in, or glance at them out the corner of their eye as they drive by the hot-lapper's car sitting off-track and in pieces.
A race lap will feel smoother than a qualifying or hot lap, and in the end your average lap times will be better than someone who doesn't conserve their tires.
