Honestly, they should have just published the crappier Tesla times, not the best that they ever recorded... all cars do different in varying conditions, it'd have been a lot more useful to post up what they both recorded on that day, rather than trying to play nice and post up better Tesla times than what they actually recorded... Seems like Top Gear was trying to play nice based on their previous negative Tesla issues, but this time it back-fired on Tesla, not Top Gear.
Back fired on Tesla

Top Gear is a BS show. Even on the Model 3 testing they run the car at 57% charge after they decided to do 1/2 miles race instead of 1/4th because the model 3 destroyed everyone. Also on the short track portion they run Model 3 Performance at even lower state charge however the Model 3 still beat the giulia quadrifoglio.

Shady shady stuff. Anyway the Model S is getting a 50hp update that was announced on the earnings call way before the top gear video.
