Important change:-

We can now monitor whether people refuel at their pitstops, so there will be no refuelling allowed.

  1. Are we doing 200% on the tyres again? It’ll just force everyone to drive at whatever speed is required to make a 1 stop. As the race is shorter, the pitlane time loss for an extra stop can’t be made up. If you want to do full simulation just have everything including laps at 100%. Even a race of 60% to 70% with normal tyre wear would be one or two stop with a variety of tyre strategies.

    • Well, 50% is a good league race distance. We’ve always had interesting strategy choices with 200% tyre wear… more than 1 stop can definitely work, especially with the tyre temperatures.

    • I’ll be 2-stopping. I agree it would be nice if you could increase the speed limit a bit in pits so that the pitstop duration is a little bit closer to 50% as well.

      If we changed tyre wear to 100%, we would still have same problem as you could zero-stop then.

    • Better would be to leave tyre wear at 100% and make one pitstop compulsory. so that no one races to the end on the hards. this way well have more variety with strategy, because right now the easiest one is doing one stop with hards, that is definitely what most of the drivers will be doing throughout the season including me. The problem is that there is no difference between the compounds on a stint of more than one lap. the softer the tire the more it heats up during the lap due to 2x tire wear and the pace difference is nullified. with 1x tire wear i can do 8 laps of spa on softs while pushing, that does not mean that i can do 4 laps on softs with 2x since the tires heat up, start sliding more and wear even faster. more on this in detail tomorrow post race

    • Chat post race will be good. I would personally like to have everything scaled correctly (including fuel), however I have to say that IF we could enforce a stop, then 1x tyres would give us far more options – literally.

  2. I won’t be able to do the full race, I have to be somewhere at that time. Can I still join in on the practice leading up to the race?

  3. A tip for tonight – decide what fuel you need for the race (I’ll be using 100 litres). Divide that by the number of laps (100/29 = 3.45 litres/lap for me). Use that value to manage your fuel during the race – if you dip below, you can rev more etc.
