What lap times are you doing!?

Also @tomaprice I need to know your lap times! also what tyres are you planning to use?
Did a low 1.37 with my first practice with full fuel for raceand not sure how much more time would be found? don't know what is a ultra quick lap time to get you towards the front with quali fuel.

Okay, I felt like my 1:37 was a bit slow. The motec display is crazy bright and it was blinding me!

I had 90l of fuel and soft tyres

Ain’t them softs starting to cook and give understeer after a few laps, think the track temp is around 30c for the race

The hards are tricky on the r8 In qualifying and it takes 2/3 laps to get them at their sweet spot so I might get 1 good lap in but for me it’s the quicker tyre but also risky. Soft are trash for me and I have to wait a lifetime before I can get the power down so their a no no. Hards seem good and quick for the race on the Audi.

I think with some tiptoe driving the soft tyres might be really good, but it may not be so nice to drive.

For me the hard tyres really work well for the AMG. It takes about 3-4 laps to get them fully working and pressures right which will compromise qualy. But for race for me it’s the better more consistent tyre. The softs just overheat like crazy since I’m not a smooth driver as I used to be on tyres. So I tend to push them a little more than I’d like. Still fighting a happy backend though from Indy and I’m not sure why it’s happening. I’ve adjusted all things necessary to counter it but nothing really works and I’ve had to adjust my driving to it. It’s not bad I just need to pay more attention to the rear of the car than I’m used to. Should be a really good race next week even with our English crowd multitasking during the race. If you’re in front of me at any stage I’m prepared to avoid any sudden movements if England scores ??

Yeah qualifying on the hards will be tricky but if you get it right pole is achievable.

Hi,

first practise session this morning. Both default setups don't seem to work, can't go below mid .38s.

Hard rear tires don't work for me, just sliding around. So I will use softs.

What is different here compared to the first tracks of the season, any major changes in setup needed?

D.

Right guys we are having a poll about the race on Wednesday night so a simple thumbs up to race and a thumbs down to postpone this round and it will be run at the end of the season. Would like everyone’s thumbs up or down by end of today if possible so we all know what’s going on.
Thumbs down from me as well ?

Could we not delay the race by say an hour or something instead if that would work better?

I want to race as I can't race if we postpone till the end of the season. I'm on holiday on august 29th.
I'm fine with moving the race one hour. Not to the end of august.
