the key is to find a setup that is not only fast, but constant and tyre saving as well
of course the fastest times are done with ballast on 11, but for me it comes with a high risc of loosing my back end :/
or do i really want to change the suspension drasticly cause it will effect the tyres pretty bad?
loads of questions, i think i will just go for something balanced at the cost of a few tenths per lap :)

PS: weather might also play a big factor ^^

You know I'm not the setup guru here but slowly going towards it. It's basically testing and testing and testing. All it takes is time :)

That's how I do it. I have a basic setup I created for Australia and I tweak it every track, I make big changes that I think suits the track and then over the course of a night I change it until I do consistent times.

So I finally got some practice done. Just 10 laps in TT, still need to tweak the setup in online mode but so far the pace is fine, nothing to write home about but I'm at least driving the times consistently.

I don't think a win is on the cards unless something changes before Sunday or there is an incident which benefits me but I'm hoping for top 5 definitely.

Looks almost certain I'll not be able to make this week's race. My internet has pretty much given up all hope of keeping a connection over the last few days and I won't be able to get anything done to it til after the weekend.

Anyone happy to share tyre life projections? Chances of getting a full race practice is very slim so would appreciate a bit of intel that might help me during the race.

Soft - (4-6 laps approx e.g)
Medium - (7-9 laps approx e.g)
Hard - (10-13 laps approx e.g)

With one out lap and Q lap with medium, I could go in the race 12 laps with them and the rest with H.
Soft - (5-7 laps approx e.g)
Medium - (10-13 laps approx e.g)
Hard - (19-23 laps approx e.g)

Thank you, that'll be a decent guide for me should I not get a race done.

i think i've got pace for top 5 at least, looking better on race pace then quali (like usual). really struggeled to get the front turned at sector 3 in todays social but i did have an rfactor 2 league race before that and the ffb was much lighter, but what can you do. im expecting 21.4-7 from me and pole to be around a 21.0-2
