Below are interesting race results for the McLaren on the Aerion race track. The 592 HP Forged 2.6L I6 absoltely smashes the 2.0L I4 Hybrid engine by 1.9 seconds. This is a huge lead in any race so it obviously dominates here.

Aardvark Results

The Aardvark test results are not as suprising as the Aerion run. However, the 2.0L I4 Hybrid actually comes out on top in the Aardvark run. Overall, because the Forged dominated the Aerion run and only narrowly missed winning in the Aardvark, it was crowned king of the F1 McLaren engines.
