All times were simulated in Grand Prix Mode, Long Weekend.
I don't know why the Fastest Laps were usually better than Qualifying Laps, but it wasn't because I mixed up the results.
In my experience, F1 games simulated times are pretty darn close to the times that you would witness if you were driving with them.

Nope... In my experience are simulated times 2 seconds slower than the times are done by AI if you're racing with them. Had the same issue since 2011. 

Do we have the same understanding of simulated times? For me simulated is if you accelerate the session time or just go to next session. And in race you just quit and have a look at the lap times. Is that what you did?

Yeah, it is what I did. It was long qualifying.

I always retired session. And in F1 2012, the times were close as far as I can remember. But whether or not I'm wrong about 2012, I think you may be right about 2014 that the times are not too close. But I only have recorded 1 sample of a race with AI (on expert), where it shows that in Australia, driving with them was slower than a simulation, by about probably 1 second.

I should say that something weird happens in Grand Prix Mode Short Weekend Long Qualifying vs Long weekend Long Qualifying. It seemed like when retiring every session in Short Weekend, Q1 was normal, but Q2, Q3, and Race had extremely bad times. All the data here is Long Weekend Long Qualifying.
