looks like it will be finished
I totally agree with you. SAFETY car will probably appear on track. Therefore max and lewis will pit the later possible, puttin focus on high puncture rosk. Unless lewis, if positioned behind after start, will try a very anticipated strategy for undercat, because he can not afford max to win here. SO Most probable WINNER is the one advantaged by safery car or the loser will be the one with broken tire. In case max after start is leader, will surely try a very long stint, so my idea i guess they will set up car mainly for tire preservation
This isn't even close to be how fast they will drive this track.godlameroso wrote: ↑Wed Nov 24, 2021 1:20 am
From what I can tell, you need a Spa like setup, or something along those line, medium downforce, COTA lite maybe. It's all about hugging the walls, two traction sensitive zones, everything else is all about carrying speed through the corners. The corners are worth a lot of time much more than the straights, but you also can't ignore the straights. At least since you don't need a ton of rear wing RBR will have a more favorable balance. It's a lot tighter in real life, still don't know what the real kerbs are like. It's definitely a two stopper, it will be incredibly hard to keep the pace up and preserve the tires. This was 18 laps in and 3 laps into the second medium stint. I imagine the push strategy will be 15M 15M 20H or some variation thereof.
It might Mazepin at the beginning of FP1, but Max et al won't be driving it like, that's for sure!
