And oars for some of the puddles. The one after I think it's turn 2 is horrendous. Done 10 laps purely to learn where puddles form and the answer is everywhere.

Looks like another night of just survive the puddle lottery and not actually racing.

Matched that first couple laps out the pits but after that the times go way up to 54s and 55s. Only done about 10 laps as it wasn't fun, wasn't enjoyable at all. Track conditions were getting comical with the amount of standing water at apexes and important parts of the circuit. One millimetre off the perfrct line and your sucked off track. Especially the lake in sector one.

One corner (can't remember the number) the puddle at the apex was getting that bad my natural line was taking me off track to avoid it and the game gives me a cut track penalty as a result. So options are time penalty or spin in the puddle.

Going to attempt another practice today to see if it improves at all with some setup changes but I'm not hopeful of it getting any better.

It's not that bad the puddles is it?
You just have to slow down and not throttle through them like Sakkito.

Its the worst I've seen on the game for me. Went through one of them at 15mph and still spun out. I get wet driving should be a challenge but if its not changed I can imagine a lot of retire to pits going on and very few finishers.

Tested earlier again and it's two puddles that are the problem. Ones unavoidable and that large there's no safe way through as I tried several lines and tried no throttle, light throttle, setup changes etc and nothing helped. The other can be avoided but can result in going off track and the game handing you a time penalty.

And before anyone mentions it. I've triple checked I've the correct lobby settings and had someone else verify that they are correct.

As far left possible. Only done about 40 mins. And it was still possible
I'll give it another try but when I tried that line I was either off on the grass or the next apex is impossible, spits you wide next corner and time penalty again.

Sure the next corner is tight, but still driveable
