I'll just be happy if the weather is decent for racing. Don't fancy trying to race with little to no grip again.

BoJo is still prime minister? Lol

Another week of ice skating around a track?
Well, the conditions are difficult. Track is cold but has high tyre wear and uneven tyre wear. The track gets colder as the race progresses, meaning you need hards at the start but they are probably no good later on

Trying to be positive... so at least it might add some strategy to the race (y)

What's a good time around here with race fuel? Last time I did it I think it was wet so hard to judge what a decent pace will be.

Done a quick test with stock setup. Doing 21s so with some tinkering I think that'll be the times. Tricky track and conditions again. Think this is the theme for the season. Tricky tracks and ice skating around gripless tracks lol
Try lowering the steering ratio to around 10 and change ur front camber to around - 4 helps alot with the tight corners

This is where I doubt my settings. My softs lasted fine lol I've had no issues with tyres so far.
You been practicing online? First couple of laps softs where flying, after 6-8 laps dripped into 22s:oops:

I do all my practice online. Done a full race sim and tyre temps stayed good, wear was good and even, grip stayed the full race. Last few laps the grip was fading but laptimes only dipped a little.

driving style @Martynvr is quite agressive @Archie619 much gentler

What was your average laptime @Archie619? Heavenly doubting between softs and hard. Tried to do a full run today but the game kept kicking me out every 15 min.
