If you need marshalling even once in a race it will cost you 5 seconds + track position, I would rather have a safe approach to the track rather than take risks at every corner in the hope of gaining a couple of tenths per lap.
Also if you can keep your car on a neat line throughout the race you will be very difficult to pass, whereas if you are overshooting corners with any regularity you are just asking to lose position.
These guys are right on. I proved it to myself again last night. I went to a bigger pinion and had a few of my fastest laps but overshot some turns, because of less braking power. Overall my car was faster with the smaller pinion. Bottom line, "slow is fast" because you keep the car consistent.
