Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge #115 – Blowout in Northamptonshire

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Feb 10, 2019.

  1. Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #115 - Blowout in Northamptonshire. It's Round Two of the Weekly Hotlap Championship League and Round 2 of the mini-series, Formula 1 in February.

    The Challenge:
    Car: Ferrari F138
    Track: Silverstone GP Circuit
    The second week of our new W.H.C.C. (Weekly Hotlap Championship) League, everyone who enters will win points and be included in the W.H.C.C.L . Those who missed last week will be awarded 3 points retrospectively. The details are repeated below.

    The challenge: The F138 is the fifty ninth car built by Ferrari specifically to take part in the Formula 1 World Championship. It was designed and built for 2013 season and driven by Fernando Alonso and Filipe Massa. It wasn’t a good season for Ferrari by their standards, with only 2 wins from 19 races, they were beaten into 3rd.
    The car weights only 640kg and features a screaming 2.4 litre V8, giving around 760hp which is boosted by a fixed Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), there is no adjustment available for recovery and deployment.
    There is also the Drag Reduction System (DRS)for the Wellington and Hanger straights, which I presume one would use in combination with the KERS.

    Silverstone GP has not featured since WHC#60 and it’s one of the classic F1 circuits. The fastest ever lap is a 1:25.892 recorded in qualifying for the 2018 British Grand Prix by Lewis Hamilton. There’s a great read on the Wikipedia page for the Silverstone Circuit, “A lap in a Formula One car” which you may find useful. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silverstone_Circuit

    At Silverstone in 2013 track temp was 23DegC. Lewis Hamilton qualified on pole with an impressive 1:29.607. Massa was knocked out in Q2 with a 1:31.779. Alonso qualified down in 9th place but finished on the podium in 3rd, behind Mark Webber and winner Nico Rosberg.

    Fernando qualified with a 1:30.979. Can you beat him?

    In 2013 the Pirelli tyres were a huge issue. Lewis Hamilton, Felipe Massa, Jean-Eric Vergne and Sergio Perez all suffered blowouts during the race. Pirelli argued under-inflation, aggressive camber settings and sharp kerbs were to blame, but from the next race they reinforced the tyres with a Kevlar band.
    Here are the recommended tyre pressures:
    slick supersoft fronts = 19psi rears = 18psi
    slick softs = 20psi all round
    slick mediums = 21psi all round
    slick hards = 22psi all round

    How to take part - Hot lap:
    To enter, select Drive > Hotlap, choose the Ferrari F138 and the Silverstone GP circuit. Please setup the session using the settings below:

    Mode: Hotlap Silverstone GP circuit
    Time of day: Free

    Setup: Free
    Controller: Free

    Please mark updated times with Improvement.

    A leader board is collated regularly. Unfortunately editing of posts gets locked on this forum so this post cannot be updated.

    From now on: Weekly Hotlap Challenge Championship League
    How it works:
    1. Enter the Weekly Hotlap Challenge as posted every Sunday evening and you will be automatically entered into the league table.
    2. Your ranking in the final standings, posted on Sunday evening, will earn you points, as follows:
    Place Points: 1st 14 2nd 13 3rd 12 4th 11 5th 10 6th 9 7th 8 8th 7 9th 6 10th 5
    3. Every player taking part in a WHC, but finishing outside the top 10 will get 4 points.
    4. Every player who is in the table, (ie has entered a previous WHC) but does not play that week will get three points each week.
    5. Players that join WHC after next week's WHC#114 will be awarded 3 points retrospectively for every WHC missed. For example, if you enter WHC for the first time at WHC#124, your name will be added to the table, with 27 points, plus whatever you score in WHC#124.
    6. Each week 5 bonus points may be awarded at "the judges' discretion". Criteria for earning the Bonus Points are not fixed but will include:
    *An amusing pic or amusing post
    * Any "very excellent" contribution to the forum/ group
    *Significant effort and improvement (so either lots of times submitted, or a big improvement between the first time submitted and final time)
    *Posting a brilliant set-up
    *Continuous participation - loyalty to WHC
    * Correcting mistakes by the administrator OR anything else the judges decide worthy.

    The updated Championship league table will be displayed in a new post in the Console Lounge each week.

    7. Specialist Challenges will also feature throughout the season. These will be as monthly mini-series, for example Formula 1 February or Muscle Car Month, or nominated car types, for example the best driver in road cars. These events will be announced in the WHC Thread. The winner of each Specialist Challenge will receive 5 bonus points.

    At the end of the year, the WHC before Xmas week, the winners will be declared -
    * Championship podium
    * Specialist Challenge Winners
    * 1st place Contributor (the most Bonus points)
    * 1st place Loyal Lapper (who has entered most regularly, most often, if there is a draw, Bonus points count, then Champ points)

  10. Hey Lewis, just think, if you turned up for a testing day for Ferrari and on the first morning, got to within a second of Massa's quali time, you would be in the car on the next grid!:D

    I think I would of got the sack before dinner though due to the amount of spin offs and nearly writing the car off half a dozen times

    Another improvement

    Okey this lap was really scary on my new Super Ultrawide monitor. It feels like you sit in the car. So immersive. Everytime when my Brain wanna hit the brake the Foot stay on the throttle. Absolutely crazy car to drive and Silverstone is always fun especially in a F1 car from Ferrari

    Much room for improvement, as no lap was clean until now.

    Btw, the auto shifting is so bad (simply for all kunos cars?), that I have to switch to manual, most downshifts are way too late on auto.
