Front limited does NOT necessarily mean you need an aggressive turn in. It just means you need a strong front for carrying lateral. In fact, front limiting corners are generally corners that force you into long arcs - ones where you have to have smooth entries thanks to the long circular line.rssh wrote:Its a Front tyre limiting track therefore a strong front end is required for aggressive turn ins which gives the best lap times but most importantly the balance of the car should be excellent so that even tyre wear occurs on all corners . .gray41 wrote:What car characteristics are good around Melbourne?
Melbourne is very specific in that it has many similar corners. Turn 1/2, 6/7, 9/10 are carbon copies of one another, and the last two corners are the same as 3/4. If you can nail these corners you have the lap pretty much sorted ish.
What exactly is mechanical about:Ferraripilot wrote:I beleive turns 3, 4 and pretty much all of sector 3 is Mercedes country as it is mechanically a heavy area
A) the circuit's two fastest corners,
B) braking into a 90-degree corner
C) a tight, fast right hander
D) a pretty much flat out right hander (onto the pit straight)
The only ones even remotely mechanical are turns 14 (the braking zone after the fast chicane) and 16 (penultimate corner - the leftie hairpin)
I'm not saying Merc will be weak there - I just don't think it is mechanical (as you say it is)
