Very tough this one, changing conditions throughout the race. 1.21s is good pace I think, will be interesting to see tyre choices and how much fuel everyone adds in their pitstop!

I'm using all softs due to low air and ambient temperatures. Are you sure you need hards. Maybe you have problem with too cold tires @Michel--NL.
I tried the softs, but they where getting over 100 degrees at the right side. The hards work nice in the first part of the race, but when it is getting overcast you really need to pay attention to it.

Looking at the practice races I think people switch to softs when the weather changed. Could be an option

@McKinda is using softs and by the looks he had a lot of problems with overtaking other drivers in the first 20 laps, you almost can't pass a other driver... once passed he was catching @Raoualf21731

Didn't realise there was mandatory pitstop and fuelled up max, didn't have time to sort out strategy once i found out about the stop, Went for default but they didn't change the tires,soft slicks the whole race. Felt like they were going flat:LOL: don't know if you can get a puncture.
Good fun though you guys are fast.

Think I’ll be somewhere in the middle with those practise times
Think if you do 1:21 - 22 and keep the car on the track you have a good change to be at the podium

Ive got my strategies sorted! 1 for duke and tyres and another for just fuel no tyres but it’ll definitely be a strategic race!

I really had almost no troubles with tires. Just had to adjust to overtaking and searching for good overtaking spots.
Im surprised that after whoke race my softs had more then 50% life and I could push normally.
Should be good race tomorrow... If i can do 1.18.5 quali :D :D :cool:

Compared to my pace over 20-minute races that I tried in practice sessions, I think I was losing about 1 to 1.5 seconds per lap though when my pit crew decided not to change my tires.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out tomorrow. Don't push too hard please, I'd like to win other races than the practice sessions ahaha
