  3. I don’t want to toot my own horn or anything, but this is probably the most proud I’ve ever been of a setup. The tyre wear was phenomenally good with extremely consistent lap times, I started on Ultras and pitted on lap 15 for Softs, while Charles did Soft>Ultra; nobody else managed to do a 1 stop, and we finished with Charles 1st and myself 2nd on 100 difficulty. I would maybe move the front wing from 5 in Qualifying to 6 or 7 for the race as I was getting a lot of understeer once the tyres were a bit worn, but otherwise it was a perfect race.

  5. This is going to sound weird, but I initially heard about this from Limitless, and he mentioned something about it during a setup video. It seems like there may actually be tyre wear or degregation in TT, so I’m wondering if anyone else here has noticed anything. Basically I was doing runs around Singapore to find a good setup for my career and it got to the point where after about 20 minutes I simply couldn’t get anywhere near my best time again. I found what I thought was a really good setup but just couldn’t make it stick around the track. I saved the setup, quit out, went back into Ti

  7. Toe all the way to the left, so 0.05/0.20 will give you the most traction and stability and best tyre wear, and all the way to the right, 0.15/0.50, is the opposite, so less stable around corners, but much more responsive and harsh on the tyres. And for Camber it's the opposite. Personally I run 0.09/0.29 for almost every single race because I use a contoller and I really need the traction and stability around long corners. I end up sacrificing a bit of speed, especially on the straights, but I find it's worth it for me to ensure that I'm not spinning out.

    Optimal revs are around 10,000 rpm in the 2017 cars I believe
  9. You definitely don't want to be turning in early anywhere on this track, avoid the kerbs at all cost, they'll ruin your time

    Quick Tips

    Very true, but I find that skill and knowing the track are almost the same thing in this game. Depends how you define 'skill' when it comes to racing games, if you think of it as knowing how much Throttle you can give around corners, or knowing exactly when to brake and downshift, that all sort of comes under track knowledge in my opinion. What needs to be remembered as well though is that everyone will drive differently. I've used setups that people have set the top lap times with and I haven't been able to use some of them as well as the default setup. The reason I use almost the exact

    Quick Tips

    After having spent a fair amount more time playing and watching videos of people doing timetrials I have to stand by my original point. Track knowledge is absolutely vital, and is far more valuable than a good setup. I see people on here posting setups for Haas or Sauber and their lap times are 1 or 2 seconds faster than some people who are posting Mercedes or Ferrari setups. The only explanation is that those people have a much better knowledge of the track, setups aren't worth 5 seconds a lap
  12. Ok so I now understand what you mean, same thing happened to me just before. Was sitting 4th in Australia first race of the season as Haas with 5 laps to go. Ended up getting 2 drive through penalties, so instead of doing the 2nd one I raged and drove slowly until first place came around the last corner and took him out.
  13. Ok so I'm in my career with McLaren, I've just gotten to Silverstone and so far all 4 upgrades that I've put on the car have failed on the first attempt. 4/4 seems ridiculously unlucky and that's now 4000 resource points wasted. I could be so much further ahead, and I'm actually starting to get quite frustrated now. Is anyone else experiencing this? Or am I just the most unlucky person playing this game right now?
  14. So we visit again to Baku after what was an incredibly tame race in 2016, with people forecasting safety car after safety car, only for it to never arise. Fast forward 12 months and we get possibly one of those most insane races that I've ever witnessed. Safety cars, red flags, penalties galore, teammates taking each other out, Bottas coming from a lap down to steal 2nd place by a fraction of a second, Stroll keeping his cool and defying all the non believers to become the 2nd youngest podium finisher in history, and the ever reliable Daniel Ricciardo positioned perfectly to take his first win
