setups do absolutely nothing lol max 3 tenths
[DOUBLEPOST=1487513280][/DOUBLEPOST]and this is coming from someone who does proper setups that can take up an hour + to perfect. this game is absolutely awful and I have no motivation to race anymore but I will still race with a bog I don't deserve...

I agree about the time gained from setups but I do find some handling changes by changing them, in fact sometimes I take a slower setup that feels better.

It shouldn't be like that though. It should be the best setup should feel the best and should cater for your driving style. Things like ARB and Ride height are modelled completely wrong in the game and their values are all wrong.

Well I had a **** time last night driving this track and i went today and modeled my setup around the issues I had last night and while not as quick the car is much easier to drive.

Driving style does change by track you know, a person great in corners has to change their style for for the likes of Monza or be lost on the straights.

Better yet take your monaco setup around monza and vice versa. Setups make a difference.

That's not exactly what I'm talking about. A driving style is the way you approach a corner not how you approach a track.Your driving style should be the same for every track you race on. For example some drivers like more understeer and a stable back end where other like a sharp front end where the back end is oversteer. However in F1 you can't do this because the options are limited

Was waiting for the track to dry out in qualifying, put in a reasonable lap but went too early, was held up a bit by @KurvZ, not sure if he was on a lap or not. Decided to run on the hards at the start of the race, it was paying off after the first few laps, managed to get into the points. After a while, I found myself in the lead, I was praying for the cross over point as I would have been in a good position for the win, on lap 15, I was given the change strategy choice and I took it, this was a mistake as the track was not wet enough, so after an extra pitstop, I found my self finishing outside the points, when points looked possible again, only thing I was happy with was my pace in the first few laps, if I would habe stuck to my strategy, I think a podium was easily possible. My POV is below:

Interesting race ^^
maybe could have stopped one time less but with doing 2 stops i could battle with @iZi which was fun, thank you ;)
got him in the end, but i would have got him anyway cause he forgot to pit for hards, which ment he needed to stop on lap 27

Quali 10 Race 10 -> solid perfomence

Q - 2nd ( 0.053s off pole, so close :( )
R - 2nd

I went out for my flying lap relatively late which i felt helped me get 2nd

In the race got a decent start which helped me hold on to P2 for a bit before getting passed by @WarnTyre at the end of the lap 1, @Ranger then overtook me at the end of lap 3. I then pitted on lap 4 for some Hards and hoped that the rain went away before it was time for inters as the forecast said nothing about rain in the race. I thankfully got passed most of the medium/hard starters relatively quickly. Pit again on lap 16 for another set of hards. End of lap 20 I passed my teammate (@Tomspeedx30 ) for P2 and thought maybe a Force India 2,3 was possible but he'd only used the hards sadly.

Congratulations to @ChokDK for his first win of the season!

My Highlights:


Weirdly my engineer didn't tell me to use inters.

Sum it up in one sentence - **** the Engineers

Good start, got upto the leaders pretty quick and was looking at a solid finish. Engineer called me in for Inters, then immediately after told me to come in for Dry tyres......... FML

Recovery to 4th was damn decent so I can't complain to much. exciting racing though if I ignore the engineer incident.

Lap 14 my engineer says I have to pit to inters as the track conditions will be wet very soon. When I get out of the pits he tells me to pit for dry tires because track won't be wet? The engineer in this game is ridiculous..

Exact same thing happened me dude..... fucking joke but I put it down to the lack of rain we have had this season, if we had more I'd have been able to make my own decision but it will only happen once :)

I didn't get any messages from the engineer regarding wet condition tires. Maybe Haas has a better engineers ;)
