No. If the bad driver screws the driving up enough then they can easily be beat by a slower car, excellent driver or not, hell an average driver of a stcok WRX could have beat those pitiful times. The race depended on how bad the driver of the faster car is. That WRX is a high 13/low 14 second car, it cannot go faster than that. The SS was driven to almost 2 full seconds slower than its ideal capabilities, that is enough lack of driving skills to lose to almost anything, not just a stage 1 WRX. Congrats to the WRX Driver but this is purely an example of bad driving/non-aggressive driving.
