Fastest Hotlap Conditions?

    What is the best way to try to reach a personal lap record?

    Is using the hotlap mode the best way to achieve your fastest lap record? I wonder, because doesn't it reset the tire temp and road rubber after every lap?

    Furthermore, I assume that clear weather is the fastest, but does time of day play a role?

    Finally, how much does fuel impact your times? Either you can't change your fuel in hotlap mode, or my game is glitching and not letting me click on the option in VR, but it doesn't work for me. With default fuel I was stuck around 2:00 on Nurburgring and wondering how people are getting such fast times, until I noticed some people had low fuel warnings on in their cockpits. hmm

    Any tips would be appreciated guys.

    Hotlap mode will reset tyre wear to 0 and tyre temps to the optimum values at the end of each lap, road grip is always at 100%. You can't set the fuel load because it's fixed at 10 liters to make it more realistic, previously everyone was using just 1 liter with consumption off, which is probably what you see on those videos, but those 10 liters definitely won't add much more than one or two tenths to your time.
    The best weather conditions will be the ones that allow your tyres to work at the optimum temperature range.

    But if you're stuck at 2:00 at Nurburgring you should focus on your driving rather than track conditions.

    what poguinhas said before - you do your best, fight, improve, struggle and then, after the best lap in motorsports history you realize that the aliens are x seconds faster (happens to me more than a year ago at spa - alien was 8s faster and i KNEW that he was cheating!!!)
    but, they dont cheat, they are so fast. its crazy but thats what it is! o_O

    This videos helped me a lot. :)
