Just to be precise, it was at the small Silverstone circuit. I don't
know the differences, but the times were less than a minute (52" and 54" ?).
Probably Brundle was not pushing 100%, also.

Frank Williams (or maybe Patrick Head) said something along these lines:
"Boullion is a sort of enigma. He is very fast in private testing
(I think he was faster than Hill at one of the last sessions he drove),
but last year at Sauber he didn't do much."
Some people would of course argue that this means that the order of
ability is Frentzen >> (much faster than) Boullion > (faster than) Hill.
If you subscribe to that view, don't forget to add to the sequence Hill's
teamate in the position found by the same algorithm.
