Well, at the 1st corner you turn right. Any questions?

yes, where is turn 1
I wanted you to win in Azerbaijan so I could say "Well Done Maku" but I guess if you don't even know the location and parameters of the 1st corner you have scant chance of getting 25 points in the race

unrelated but you're in a really tight battle with haydn for the lead in the Wall of Shame thread, 58 to 60 seconds of penalties. Keep getting those pens, it's pretty funny ;)

The left hander in S3 that leads to the full-throttle part. If you are desperate, you can also cut the corner before that one, but you run the risk of doing a @Thm786 (getting launched into the outer wall)

So @MakuF1 to master this circuit, yes im not gonna joke, you just have to get all the apexes right. Brake for turn 1 after the shadow from the Grand Stand (or just the shadow right before the kerbs start).

For turn 2 brake when the wall starts.
Turn 3 brake right after the little sunlight line between 2 shadows.
Turn 4 brake right before or right when the kerb starts.
Turn 5 brake at the 100m board (cant remember if there is one, i believe on 2016 there was)
Turn 6 should just go normally, slow in fast out and take a wide line to avoid the kerb on the entry and exit.
Turn 7 find your own braking point, because its a bit different for the pad on how controlled the car is.
Castle section: Try to cut as much as possible and brake at the shadows again.
The rest shouldnt be too hard, is it?

@MakuF1 @Julien2395 I drive this track rather point-and-squirt. I do all my braking in a straight line, roll smoothly but cautiously through the corner (whilst making sure to avoid the kerbs) and floor it out on the exit.

Is that the Mercedes benz museum, the same as the place where codies did their sponsorship stuff?

This is actly soo much nicer. Much more modern, slick and less kinda clunky. Makes the website look alot more professional.

Q: first attempt, I completely ruined turn 1 so a very weak banker lap. Had a good look on the times before 2nd run, and even though I was 2 seconds up, I expected I'd go from P12 to P10 only, so I decided to abandon the run and go for a fresh set. Prediction turned out to be correct.

R: nice careful first lap by most, but some incidents in the 2nd lap. In lap 4 I lost the car by myself exit turn 1. Never lost it there before, so that was quite a hit to my confidence. One red part on the wing, so that meant get medium tyres to finish race. Was last and had no battle for position after the stop. Boring race. Judging by the minimap (plenty of time to look at it) more people had a boring race, except 2 or 3 guys near the end.
Makes one wonder what would've happened today if SC was enabled.
Not that I deserved more than I got today. Even without wing damage I think I still would've finished behind mr Alcon, so that would still have been P8. My point scoring streak didn't end thanks to all those DNF's :p
Opening laps and wing incident:

@Chicane Especially if this split keeps dying at the rate it is, we need something to keep us sane. I'm gonna message fisi about this, there is only 13 people left racing now. SC is probably needed, to keep us alive tbh lmao
