Hopefully low 37's is good :p This is a track I like, but I'm not so good here

Personally, I'm annoyed.

2 break weeks, for two lacklustre F1 races. 2 weeks! And what do we get, this aidsy circuit as a welcome back.

I wouldn't worry dude, I personally have not done a full race around this track and I had done 6 or so for Bahrain and a few for China. If I can just get into the top 5, I'll be happy but if I don't I won't lose any sleep over this ****.

I have not driven this circuit since my career mode, which was a long time ago.

Not one I particularly enjoy, it's very boring to drive.

I was just thinking that, I'd really like to hear why people personally dislike this track.

I personally don't like because I don't find it very enjoyable to drive.

For me, I think the only fun bit is turn 3, the rest is all very easy. I mean, the end of the second DRS straight is a bit of a challenge, but once you've got your eye in its alright.

It's just a very "meh" circuit.

So. 1:42.5. That's it folks. Full fuel, medium tyres. I'll get my coat.

Practically zero tyre wear though, so I guess it's a one-stopper FTW. Extra bonus is having a shorter race around this horrible place due to the multiple laps down I'll be...

Anyone else done basically no practice? I did a few laps yesterday but had to cut my session short because I was on the verge of dying from boredom. I'll be happy to nab a few points here and move onto the next race.

Will do a few laps this afternoon if anyone is interested in doing an online session at around 4pm.

interestingly I've gone old skool and am running with corner driving line. Not used it for years, but seems to help immensely around here. Normally I'd be a bit embarrassed to be using a driver aid, but my pace sucks so I really don't give a monkey's :D

As much as I hate racing line, that might be a good idea!

Lads the aids are free to use in this league, using anything that's allowed to gain an advantage is fine.

If I turned the line off and started doing crap you can be sure it would be turned on again, this ain't split 1 lol.

Conversely, if I turned on all the allowed assists and suddenly started winning I'd be switching them back off...

Very true but since most did their trials with them on it reminds fairly balanced.

I don't use the racing line purely because I don't like being told what to do. Similarly I dislike the 'track acclimatisation' thing in the career mode.

I'm driving, I know best.
