Only two seconds faster today than 20 years ago!
I would suspect those old Williamses to run in midfield nowadays.
What about the tyre differences? I'd bet that there are 2 seconds between the Goodyears of 20 years ago and the Pirellis of this year. Also, what about changes to the circuit?
In Monza in 1992 the pole time was 1.22.2 , in 2010 it was 1.21.9. And the '92 race had the double chicane at Rettifilo.
