I wonder if someone will go for a 1 stop strategy to get fresh tires, or if we're all pushing through.
I'm quite good with my tires, so stopping is not really needed, but some cars with higher wear, it may become a valid strategy.

Ive had a practice yesterday with @LiboCZ and had some good fun, Im starting to become good friends with the track :) Hopefully I can improve some more, really like the flow of it.

The left tires are melting because of all those fast right handers, starts to feel pretty bad after a few laps. Also its really easy to extend a few corners by mistake, need to sort it out to stay clean as possible.

I don't think the tyres wear enough to make this strategy worth the time loss...
I got only 8% wear on left tyres for 24 laps.

What a great track, I havent raced on this track before and only had around 20 laps practice, and getting into the 1:41's, feels like a great track.

41s? damn, that's fast! Race or qualifying setup?

20 laps and 1:41? Man, you are in the wrong tier!

Let's see if I can perform like this tomorrow / Wednesday, hopefully by then even better!

Always a different race when under some pressure. :)

Yeah, laps around 41s are not allowed for this tier :p

By the way I realized I am really struggling with track limits, especially first corner is really problem and therefore I am loosing a lot of time now in first corner and cannot make times under 45.
