so we arrive at budapest, a track i love, and a track ferrari go well at.

Im expecting this to be 1 of the closest races of the season and a slightly mixed grid, as there is only 1 way to go with set up, and looking at the times so far it looks that way.

As for myself well day 1 as norm just gears and wings, whilst getting a flow with the track,
car isnt that bad but still a lot can be done,
Primes dont seem to be lasting long here, so stratagi is important,

lot of work to do, more tomorrow

Team Canada has arrived in Hungary! First thing off the trailers was CANADIAN BEER EH!

Even though I raced this track a few years back I have no clue about the layout. Took the car out and turned around 20 laps until I figured out the layout. LUV THIS TYPE OF TRACK! Down force & balance is key I see already. Very technical track with lots of quick tight turns. More testing tonight and hopefully we get the set up down.

I also have a prediction . . . but ill tell after the race!

OH CANADA!

CA-RAZY!

Day 2 -

"car has hit the sweet spot" After 2nd day i dont think ive had the car feel as good as it does now, with this mod,
The amount i can push and the confidence i have in turns is great
It reminds me of the set up i had at spain season 3, when i won from 23rd on the grid,
And i still think i can get maybe 0.3 out of the car, its also been my most consistant stint this early in the week for a long time, the biggest gap from my 1st lap to my last lap was 0.237

Now i have built a good gap in the title, i can start to play safe so if im in any battle i have no reason to attack and risk being in a incident with any1, but obvo i will still go for the win,

Haz is looking shit hot here, and prob gonna be main rival come sunday,
but target is alonso.

OK didnt had much time today but i got some improvements on the car setup wich make me slightly faster but feeling so much better wich means i can attack more wich i have to if i start in row 2,3 or 4 as i know some will be lot quicker in quali.

Anyway will check tyres over the week but already saw most i wanted on my runs so far.

More over the week.

Ok more tyre testing today and it was good to see im right with andrew here but haz is definatly quicker than i am so he will be a podium contender for sure.

As far as i go pace i still at the same level but im able to get it lap 1 wich is important as i struggeld to get pace early on in the stint in the last 3 or 4 races.

I excpect it to be the closest Grand Prix of the season so that means quali will be massivly important.

More testing last night but I do have a few questions . . .

1) Could somebody or one of the admins please put up average race times because all I really see is people hot lapping it. For a newbie it could be a little frustrating to see youre way off pace. Although I turned some pretty good laps(for me anyways) last night Im still 5 seconds off of the pace. Now Im really really hoping those times are Q laps otherwise . . . you know where Im going with this.

2) Im not asking for handouts but I am out dated with making set ups, its been a long time since I was pretty good at it in F-1. I would rather sit down with some and go over the set ups rather than just sending them. I know from expereince that most set ups are personnel and what works for you most likely will not work for others and thats not a bad thing. Everyone has a different driving style and before I knew how to make set ups I would(and still do) tweak it to my likings.

Otherwise Im really loving this mod!

I have a few people interested in the league and want to test with me. A few Auzzzies and some Americans. They should be joining the forums in the next few days.

I will be on after work tonight tired or not, I really need to put in some fuel runs.

Oh before I forget something I noticed during practice. While testing tire runs when I come into the pits my fuel is taken out and I am only left with less than a lap of fuel. I am a stickler for practicing fuel and tires runs. For me this is crucial cause I need to see how the car drives with less fuel on board so I can make adjustments to the set up.

Thats it! At least for now . . .

CA-RAZY!

Regarding to the fuel thing, go to your userdata folder and select your profile. Find the .plr file and open and ctrl+f to search - Relative Fuel Strategy, when you found it change it from 0 to 1. I think anyway.

Links to hotlaps : http://109.70.148.181:2508/rFactorHotlaps?max=100

You can track fastest lap times but i think a good race pace (middle of the pack) should be a 1:23/24

Gary regarding the hotlaps
Most of the time the top 10 runners do race fuel mon - fri
Then people start on quali.
Also don't let times get you down because some people do race sim
Ie- haz laps were on his 2nd stint. So after 1st pit in race.

If your on team speak tonight I'll help you out with set up
