In what way? Please don't tell me the tyre wear is really bad here :hungover:
No, I'll try explain.

You could probably do the full race without stopping, tyre wear is amazing but the time you lose is as if the tyres were worn. In other words it seems you will be pitting because your slower after so many laps than because the tyres are worn.

P.S I did a few laps last night to see what tyre wear would be like. I pitted after 14 laps on the US because I was over 3 seconds slower but tyre wear was only 50%ish. I believe this is a track that a 1 stop while possible will defo not be quicker.

Ah okay I understand, that is interesting! It's quite a short pitlane as well so that counts against a one stop too.

Yeah and with the tyre wear glitch fixed (not that it would even matter here) it will be very interesting to see how everyone approaches this race.

Think my approach will be to practice for half-an-hour, run the formation lap and then spear into the nearest wall. Might save me some time.

haha, im doing my monaco approach, don't practice too much and finish the race with slow pace but no wing damage
maybe finishing in this way will gift me a point :)

I don't think this track is as hard as Monaco. Wall are not the delimitaion of the track, you have a bit of space to come back in the track.
What is a good lap on this track?

if race pace is 1.42, I will probably be lapped. I can't manage 1.47 for a better race pace atm. 1.41 for quali I bet with all that fast guys there ! And I'm not in the fast guy, but you know already that ;)

1.42 race pace would see me lapped in about 10 laps so lapped 3 times.

Find it strangely difficult to drive round here, it's difficult to judge my braking points because there's so much crap at the side of the circuit. I had the same problem at Baku, too.

Never done good in the past in this track, but I hope to cut the DNF in Singapore since 2013 ;)
