I reckon there are 2 types of people.
Totally agree. I used to be on the side of making a few changes for a quali set up. Like tyre pressures/areo/fuel/intakes. Now though I tend to set the car up for the race then drop the fuel and maybe if I can drop a notch on both front and rear areo.I reckon there are 2 types of people.
1. Use their race setup, but lower the fuel down to 3-6 laps. (weather dependant)
2. Completely new setup for qualification.
I say this, because I have done both ha.
Sometimes, usually i make a race setup first make the car stable and consistent and then make a new save for a qualifying setup usually the same settings but just changing a few areas, fuel, radiator and other stuff to get a few more tenths but i'd do what you feel is time efficient and worth your while, make your practice effective and it will pay off in the race if things go to plan
How am j supposed to know my car is ghosted?Please read!!! Important information!!!
Important notes for the Hockenheim Classic GP:
1. Since season 11 we are using the in-game cut detection system as the main method of enforcing track limits, however at Turn 1, 2 and 3 (first chicane) the in-game system can occasionally be unreliable. Everyone is reminded that the standard AOR white line rules are still in effect, and that they are still expected to lift to return any gained time, regardless of if the in-game system would clear without lifting.
2. There is a possibility to 'ghost' your car. If for whatever reason your car is ghosted during the qualifying session you need to return to the pits immediately, this will reset your car and you can continue the qualification. Driving around in the qualification with a ghosted car can get you disqualified by the stewards after the race.
If 2.05 is the race pace I'll retire my car after the formation lap to save the engine . I knew that Audi is slow at the straights but not so muchI'm not in the Merc but I will say mid 2.05 race fuel and mid to low 2.04 quali from what I've seen.
Not sure if any sand bagging going on but doubt it .
Not everyone will have those times only the top few so the rest of the pack can race but please don't spin and crash into me this weekIf 2.05 is the race pace I'll retire my car after the formation lap to save the engine . I knew that Audi is slow at the straights but not so much
