Clearly travelling 10 km/hr faster at 300+ is less valuable than travelling 5 or 6 km/hr faster at less than 100.
travelling x seconds at +10km/h is always better than travelling x seconds at +6km/h. Regardless of which speed you are.
Which is why I said
The most interesting thing is that the Ferrari is travelling faster for most of the track distance
The plot shown is velocity vs track distance. If the plot was velocity vs time, the true value of extra velocity on the straights vs corners would be apparent.
I think the delta in the corners (considering the exit as well) is higher than the one in the straights.
The plot doesn't differentiate corners, exits, straights etc - it simply shows the total distance for which one car is faster than the other. The Mercedes is faster for a very short distance only, but due to the low speeds, this is a relatively long time.
