OK so after getting blown up on lap one, I went to watch Jason'a stream and apparently there's a glitch in the game that if you start on a harder compound of tyres, you get a lot less tyre wear on EVERY set of tyres you use throughout the race. Apparently Codies are aware of this and have confirmed the glitch is in the game.

So everyone feel free to exploit this for the rest of the season :p

I have done no practice. Was expecing to get a good 2 hours in after the F1.

That went well.
Paid the price for no practice (again). A very lonely race. Only had fights with quicker people on fresher and faster tyres, so not really fights at all tbh.

Apologies @LC SPEED DEMON, it was a racing incident but I could have left a tiny bit more room.
no worries mate

That explains why I was able to do a one stop. I'm normally horrible on my tyres. ffs

Well I could do a 1 stop but when I tried to start on the softs and then do medium hards I wasn't as good on my tires and I could barely manage to do a 2 stop.I think that there has to be a league poll that decides of we race next week or not because this glitch has a serious effect on the races

This explains why we have only had 1 win from pole all season and I think 3 from outside the top 10

I mean I don't think it will have such an effect at Monaco, but in pretty much all the rest of the tracks this season it may have a massive affect on strategy. Especially a track such as Austria and Spa

Around 37 minutes is race start. You can see @F1Maestro26 getting hit.

On lap 2 i overtake @Dast around the outside.
A lap later i get overtaken by hayassa.

On lap 13 you see @Taylor Reynolds almost killing me on the main straight lol.

Apart from that a boring race. Not much happend after i hit @F1Maestro26 (Who must have the worst luck i have ever seen) at turn 1 wich made me lose a bit of my wing and comprimised my race dearly. P8 in the end:( could have been much better.

@The Genius was nowhere to be seen though:rofl:

Does anyone know if Codies are working on a patch for this tyre glitch or do they just know about it and aren't doing anything yet?

Sorry @StubbornGymnast no idea I hit you. I thought Riley spun round and I clipped his rear. And yeah. Even though some of it is my own fault I unfortunately do have awful luck this season. I'll give it one more chance in Monaco though and I'll hope for a good one there :)
