Hi all, once again I'm doing qualy & race comparisons across the top tiers for China last night, however I've decided to make some minor changes from last week.

Most of the changes are for qualy, I've decided to take the top 10 times from PC - T1, T2, T3*, PS4 - T1, T2, T3, XB1 - T1, T2 & finally Oceania PS4* & XB1*. (So a maximum of 90 drivers)

I felt that taking all competitive times like last week was a bit excessive and was making this to big, I think reducing it to only the top 10 drivers from each tier (that has a dry qualy) will give everyone a better understanding of where's the tiers are in reference to each other not just pace wise but platform wise as well.

As for the asterisks beside PC F3 and the Oceania tiers, originally I was intending to use the top 3 tiers from all platforms but because PC T3 & XB1 T3 allow the use of assists it meant that this wouldn't create a equal and true picture by including drivers who use assists in those tiers, so after looking into the those tiers and see which people used assists I found they was 2 vastly different tiers.

XB1 T3 has about 17/18 of the 20 drivers using assists which means taking times from this tier would be pointless just due to those numbers alone, however PC T3 has only 4/5 drivers that use assists so I decided to keep PC T3 in, however the drivers that I know use assists will not be included in these results.

But with XB1 T3 not included I still wanted to add another quality tier to this and that's where the Oceania leagues come in, collectively there are around 15 drivers from the PS4 & XB1 in the Oceania section that don't use assists, so the intention is to include the best 10 of these collectively in any qualy session providing both are dry. if a session is wet on one platform or another the numbers included will be reduced accordingly, also Oceania drivers will count towards the PS4 & XB1 platform positions.

Anyway I hope this clears up any confusion regarding the inclusion of these tiers, ok once again drivers have been colour co-ordinated to there platform and tier these are as follows: PC - red, orange & yellow - PS4 - light blue, dark blue & purple - XB1 - green & light green - Oceania PS4/XB1 - grey.
Also like last week some names & gamertags have been shortened.

(note: PC T2 was damp to start off but did dry up sufficiently to be eligible for inclusion to the qualy results and the only wet qualy session was PS4 Oceania, because of this only 8 drivers will be included from the Oceania tier.)

Once again like Australia the top 4 times are taken by PC drivers with Fab Donoso being fastest overall however the margin was a lot closer, also like last week the first non PC driver was TheFlyingFinn in 5th, the first PS4 driver was OllieD in 13th.
Notable other performances was the first overall T2 driver PC's Vadkan 12th overall, Oceania's NzL Ryan setting the 6th fastest XB1 time, but probably the standout performance was T3's detainable who would have qualified 2nd in PC T2 with his lap.

Ok tomorrow should see the race comparisons results.

Here's PS4 F2 Qualifying results for your research.

Thanks to Tactician the PS4 T2 times have been added and it certainly made for interesting final results, Tactician was overall the 3rd fastest non T1 driver and between the PS4 T2 & T3, big_prenta & Hybrid_Nuke would have qualified 2nd & 3rd in T2 based on there times.

Ok here is the race results comparison, there are minor changes but a lot less compared to qualy, i'll be including the top 8 finishers instead of originally 6 for all tiers. (except Oceania PS4 & XB1 collectively which can be as many as 8 but could be less depending on circumstances)
Also originally this was only meant to be including fully dry race results only, however due to several tiers having wet conditions on sunday night I've decided to still add them but put them together separately, wet race results will only be included when multiple tiers have similar conditions, ie: inter conditions all race or full wet all race.

So tiers that had dry races were: PC T1 & T3, PS4 T1* & T3, XB1 T1 & PS4 OCE.
(With PS4 T1, there race did start on a damp track but because dry tyres were only used I will count this as a dry race, though I will still add an asterisk besides these drivers.)
As for tiers that had wet races they were: PC T2, XB1 T2 & XB1 OCE, these 3 races had inter conditions all race and will have there own comparison between them.
Unfortunately though the one tier does miss out is PS4 T2, as there race went from dry to wet conditions mid-race and there is no other tiers to compare that against.

As always some names and gamertags have been made shorter or abbreviated, also drivers and platforms have been colour co-ordinated like qualy: PC: red/orange/yellow - PS4:light blue/blue/purple - XB1: green/light green - Oceania PS4/XB1: grey

43. - 19th - Grunt.Tortise - PS4 OCE -- +1:41.309

(* = Race was damp to start with)

This time PC's FormulaDani was the fastest overall, with B. Leigh in 2nd however the PC's top 4 dominance was broken by XB1's TheFlyingFinn who was 4th.
Notable was 12th overall PC T3's detainable, but due to the damp conditions in PS4 T1 at the start of there race, the PS4 T3 drivers ended up claiming 4 of the top 5 PS4 times.

Should be noted that PS4 F2 suffered a glitch midway through quali that reverted about half the drivers setups to default so they couldn't improve on the final run which as we know is a good few tenths faster. This included at least the top 3 from the first run.

PC F2 so far:

Aus Q: Everyone runs wet setups, frontrunners get held up on their hot laps
Aus R: Wet

Chi Q: Wet at start, low grip + only one lap at the end, and wet setups again
Chi R: Wet

I wonder how long it's gonna be before my league can get any proper representation...

If you want to talk about frustration how about just spending the last 90 mins writing out the wet results and just as I'm nearly finished the site has an issue and I add to refresh the page, the new results I had written disappears.:rage::arghh::banghead:
Screw it I'll do it later...

22. - 14th - DRC Jarad -------- XB1 OCE -- +1:10.924

(note: In all 3 races only the Inter tyre was used by drivers the whole race, so based on this the comparison between these 3 tiers is fair, also as there is only one PC tier there is no platform positions.)

So XB1 Oceania driver @NzL RyaN LzN set the fastest race time overall with 2nd also going to Oceania driver Aitcho, PC T2's Vardan was 3rd overall then the first XB1 T2 driver MVPZero was 4th.
