V8's are less powerfull than V10's for sure. But the use of full throttle has increased considerably.
This is bcz at 950 bhp slamming the throttle in a corner would give a spin but at 700 bhp is ok to slam as far we have seen now. Last year we have seen drivers pushing down full throttle only after entering half point of the curve but they are doing it too early this year.
This is also due to the tyre grip level's which contribute a lot as they can use 3 or 4 sets in place of 1 when compared to last year. V8 needs less air to run when compared to V10's, so less open area at the sidepods where aerodymists can do more work.
Rev's of engine has reached 20000...It is just a matter of time when it shoots up..
So for sure before season ends the times would still tumble...

Chris Slater and Chros Goodwin were telling that. Even the person who gives the track talk technical review said that.

P.S Its just a approximation by them. They say its around 200bhp less then V10s.

V8s are running 200bhp less then the V10 but in the V10s the drivers never pushed the car till the outmust, since they had to save their tyres for the whole weekend.
