To tell the truth I have never raced on this one. Any info about laptimes would be appreciated.

I've never raced there either, it looks a bit dull from the first laps I did a few days ago. I did 1:19/1:20 after few laps if I remember well, but no idea how you can hold the pace in a long race. The tricky part there is that if you get to the grass, there is no wall so you may well end up on the other side of the track :D

Anyway, I'm so fed up with the dramatically poor performances so far this season. I hope the efforts will finally pay off and that I will finally have at least an enjoyable evening in the league. See you next Wednesday for some good racing!

Yeah a lot of run off zones . My pace with 100L of fuel cant get under 1.21
Since this is random grid start I pray to PS4&PC2 gods to secure me good start position. And since there is going to be 66 laps we will need to do pitstop for additional fuel... I wonder if it pays of tire change also...
Strategy and good starting position is going to be key for good result.
Overtaking spots are weak and only managable with dive bombs :cool:

It is not random...it is based on the championship standings and then reversed...so you will start as last, but you have 90 minutes to make it to the front :p

I think on this track there will not be big difference in pace between drivers.

Learning from the last 2 races, I am focused a bit more on stability, putting on 20 to 21's on softs, but they seem to overheat just too much, and hards do put the McLaren back quite a bit, so high 21 for now on them. didn't do much tuning, basically took my Zolder setup from season 12, so hoping to get the hards into the 20's as well with a bit of tuning and still needing to get the racing line perfect, haven't done much racing here.
