Loved this track in F1 games but it doesn't suit me in pcars cause there are two many straights. Still have to do better after a dismal showing at COTA.

This track are as a lot of the F1 approved tracks - best in a formula car, I’ve never been so crazy about this track.
Anyone who got some hotlap or racepace times yet?

Could everyone please take a look at the rules for the rolling start again, it’s really difficult to be in front on race starts, and I’m guessing it’s at least as troubled further down the grid. It would be great if we could do a start where speed was limited to the max speeds in rules, and seeing the entire field come nice and close together at formation point before acceleration begins.

low 32s at least quali, 35s-37s race? Really struggling for race pace on heavy fuel.

If the race pace are going to be somewhere in 35-37’s I’m gonna have a really long race falling down through the field.

Actually that was a bit early when the track was dry. I think it will be more like 39s-40s. I'm gonna practice a bit tonight to get a better idea of pace.

Hi all I'm going to have to miss this race as I have tonsilitis and feel I won't be able to concentrate on the race. Hope you all have a good race and see you next week.

I've done the race distance twice with the X 2 settings with no issues, you do get some puddles but would expect that anyway and part of the skill is adapting your lines to avoid them. Still, will make a bit easier so I won't be complaining :)

I agree with you. But we want all the tiers to have the same settings to avoid any confusion with the players.

Well that was interesting?!?!??!?!

Micheal ?? what was all that on the first lap. :finger:

Q:12
Race: DNF petrol :facepalm:

In quali Wil 5 knocked me off on my fast lap. Did the same in the previous weeks race

Race got up to 4 then ran out of fuel with 3 minutes to go stupid boy Pike..

I went on board while spectating the top 3 you guys did not make enough of an effort to stay on track?!?! Cutting and extending all the dam time if my machine had saved the replay you would all be in the stewards... shame on you all

I've got my own replay from onboard which I'm happy to upload, I have nothing to hide and was staying well within the limits.

I already thought that I a was causing a major lag. Uploading at the moment to youtube.
I did not touch anyone and all of the sudden I see @dray6181's backwing flying through the air and then I knew #@[email protected]&#$
So I dropped to the back and stay away from everybody as much as possible.

went wide on first time round as did most people, I was already in the lead so no place to give back. Sorry but that was the only mistake I made in an hour long race which I dominated and it sounds like sour grapes you suggesting that the top 3 were cutting. My replay starts about 2 laps in as is just onboard one but I will upload tomorrow if anyone feels I wasn't racing fair.

Not sour at all I went to spectator mode and flicked between the top three and all at some point in a lap either cut or extended and that was only watching for three minutes... show the replay of the chase cam, if I am wrong and just happened upon the only time it happened I will gladly apologise.

I drive in car so the replay will be that as the actual proper replay only saved 40 mins. Will upload shortly, you know track limits or on don't you? We all do our best but in those conditions sometimes you do overun. Can't speak for rest of podium as we were quite spread out in race.
