Actually, these videos settle the whole debate about why 6:th gear was not used on the Ring. We can se that at least 256 km/h is achieved in fifth and he then goes on to 272 km/h in 6:th. 258 is the car's official top speed so it's definitely geared for fuel economy and reaches it's top speed already in 5:th.
If the car would have benefited from a closer ratio gearbox or if most of us will be happy for the long 6:th when we travel back and forth to the Ring with our "race" exhausts, that we will know next year...
