Silverstone 2018

    Comparing the laptimes of 2018 to todays laptimes and those of 2017 and 2016, it feels like they were using either a more poweful BOP or a different layout last year. Does anyone have an idea why they were about two seconds quicker in qualifying last year than in any other of the recent qualifying events at Silverstone???

    Yes good observation.
    In 2018 the circuit was juuuust fresh resurfaced. It kept the many undulations and everybody was complaining (especially MotoGP drivers) but the asphalt had mega grip for the initial races.
    This year, bad weather apart that makes the circuit changing rubber levels constantly, the surface is not new anymore and the undulation of course remain.
    Result is much worse laptimes.

  4. I think they will look into it.
    However, very good job Aris, thanks.

    If we see the race best lap to be equal or better than qualifying, that will also give a hint that the circuit was never in good rubbered conditions during qualifying, because of the strange weather

    A question (3), please :):
    will our Silverstone be resurfaced fresh? and the tarmac will be black as freshly made?
    The laser scan is new or with old waves/undulations?

    @Luca Zari all refreshed as needed.

    Blancpain live coverage, just interviewed Mirko Bortolotti (who starts from pole position). He said just said that last year the track was resurfaced and had mega grip, while this year it goes back to old grip levels so they are going a bit slower. :)

    I blame slow qualifying on the extra weight of all those ACC stickers on the cars.

    I thought the race was amazing. People pushing hard for most of the 3 hours...

    I thought the race was interesting. Especially considering the mixed grid. One of the ROWE Porsche's started 39th and managed to finish 4th, gaining 35 positions over 3 hours! That is pretty impressive.

    How you define "boring" a race that saw the fight for victory finish a lap before the end after 3h of racing? Lol

    I think you are confused. What you watched was the F1 race, not Blancpain.

    Nop , I did watch Blancpain and not F1.
    It was pretty boring from start to Finish.

    @Aristotelis
    Just to get it right: our "ACC Silverstone" currently is the one with that extra grip and there is a bit of pace left to find for the AI ATM? So our references are the 2018 times?
    BTW it seems that the AI currantly takes too much fuel into qualifying in general.

    What makes you say that? The session that I believe is inaccurate at the moment is Practice.
    So far I've noticed Ai quali pace is 1-2 secs faster than race pace which I think is accurate. They're even faster in Practice than quali tho, which shouldn't be the case, but I believe the current ratio between quali and race pace is realistic.
