A solved face on a cube isn't always sub-1 able.
You might get a bad case. furthermore, there are issues with picking up the cube and AUF which slow down the solve some more.

Source: Chris Olson had a solved face on a scramble in comp and I asked him why it wasn't sub-1.

I wouldn't say it's part of the 'normal' Z perm. I never usually do U2 after the alg. I don't know what I was thinking when I did the U2, but my TPS that solve was so bad anyway I don't really care about the +2

... I can't even write my G perm because I only know it by muscle memory

Pyra I screwed up the third scramble even though it was easiest
The ao5 was alright though
