Jaguar did put Cup 2 Rs on the P8 for the lap time, while BMW opted to partner with Pirelli for the CS. It's puzzling as you would think the M5 CS would put a seriously lap time down on Cup 2 Rs.

Like you said, maybe they want the fastest car to be the M4 CSL and they rigged that because the M5 CS was much faster than they expected. Or they wanted to protect the M5C and not admit how much better the CS was. We will never know.
Yeah, I need to stop whining!

Back on topic - there's something sexy about a wagon running rampage around a racetrack. Superb work by BMW.

You can't directly compare Nurburgring times across a couple of years, the track was fully repaved this year and is much smoother and noticeably quicker now.

Very good point. Even more impressive of the M4 CS then.

Can't wait to see this new car without camo

You are asking the right question!
I'm very sure it is the full track layout including T13. I.e. NOT the shortened sport auto supertest layout.
Why? Because the Nürburgring GmbH (owner of the track) since recently dictates, whatever official lap record is mentioned by the OEM needs to cover the full/official track. Same reason M published the 7:20 for the CSL and only in brackets/lower case the 7:15 of the sport auto layout!

I think Touring could have been faster. Jorg short shifted the whole way.

but the Ring was repaved over winter so ... who knows

Yes, in the on-board lap video they posted afterwards one can see the time for the shortened track was 7:30.3.
