Help with gaining speed on Misano

    I did a Hotstint on Misano with Audi and safe setup. I used 45l fuel and a 3 for TC & ABS.
    It was a 15min stint.

    Best lap was 1:37.1 and other 10 laps were within 1 second (which is good for me).
    Vid of it


    I can supply the replay of the stint as well if needed.
    Here is Motec for the stint.

    Any advice to gain time would be awesome.
    I think my lines on most corners could be improved and should get on power earlier.

    Hey, most room for improvement I see in hitting your braking points and turn in points more consistently.
    Sometimes you overshoot the braking, sometimes it's a bit too early.

    Your driving lines themselves seem good. From the video I see that you know how to take corners, it's just that you miss the apex' sometimes due to braking too late/early.
    I'd make this your main focus to work on. Aside from this you could push harder and get on throttle a bit earlier, but this is something that will also become easier when you hit your braking and turn in points more consistent.

    The lines are good.

    Brake earlier for the 3rd corner (the slow double right), and try not to slide coming on the backstraight, it will cost alot of time. Try to cut more the 4th gear corner after the backstraight too.

    You can safely move brake bias to 58-60 in Audi to help with braking distance also.

    Have a look at this from Aris, you will learn a lot. I did.

    Push the limits until you spin in the corners, you need to find that point just before the car wants to oversteer or understeer and maintain it on each corner. Don't be afraid to use the curbs on each corner.

    Don't do that.
    By looking at your video, I can see that you're already using the kerbs well enough. The problem is that you push too hard and you try to brake too late, resulting in overshooting the turn in and missing the apex in many turns. This makes losing a lot of time waiting for the car to get back in line and accelerating later than you should, costing you a lot of time.

    My advice is, try to brake a tiny bit earlier in all the corners, get your braking mark 2-5meters before of where you brake now. Focus on nailing the apex correctly and you'll be able to accelerate earlier. Watch your delta going green and profit! :D
    Have a great new year

    Cheers for all replies.
    These laptimes from the vid were done after watching that Aris' vid.. esp how to take the last corner.
    I'm actually stoked that I'm using decent lines and using the kerbs.

    When watching the replays, I noticed that it sounds like I slide on most corners, not just on the double as Junneh mentioned. Is this true on the other corners?

    Following the advice given, I'll setup my braking a wee bit earlier and focus on being consistent.
    I normally do 15min stints, but I'll see about extending it to 30 and focus on consistency instead of laptimes.

    You guys are awesome.

    One more advice I can give is not to go on and off the throttle because it is unsettling the car. Always keep in mind that by applying the throttle you shift wheight towards the rear and when you get off the throttle the rear gets light.

    There are a few corners where you get on the throttle after you finished braking but before the apex, then get off the throttle again before actually starting to accelerate out of the corner. Let the car coast to the apex and only from the apex onwards apply the throttle gradually. Worst example is the second last corner in the video were you are on and off the throttle constantly, the last corner on the other hand looks quite good.
    As a rule of thumb you shouldn't be on the throttle before the apex in corners that can't be taken full throttle. An exeption may be fast corners, I'd say above 180 kph, where applying at least some amount of throttle before the apex may stabilize the rear end.
