The Mach number depends a little on the temperature. High temperature means not only lower engine speed but a higher speed of sound, reducing the MAch number a little. In this case the Mach nuber is never greater than 0.7.

This may not seem like much but it reduces the best angle of atack by about 1.8 degrees. For speed events the effect is much larger.
