According to Pirelli's estimates, there is a laptime advantage of around 0.6s between the softest tyre, the C5, and the C4, and a similar gap between the C4 and the C3. The C2 is estimated to be 0.7s slower than the C3, and 0.8s-1s faster than the hardest compound, the C1.

Max Verstappen's Friday laptime would therefore have theoretically been a 1:16.5 had it been set on C5 tyres, as per the rest of the field.
