    Can anyone confirm if this car does have KERS?
    I thought it only had DRS

    This is how it’s done properly.
    Faster car obviously but the lines and the parts where full throttle is used are the same.

    Yes it definitely has KERS (at least on PC it does).

    Your lap time looks even better now!

    no kers on console??? :eek:
    than this WHC is messed up a little. :(
    have overseen kers but used it in a little chaotic way. :rolleyes:
    but i am some tenths faster :cool:
    what i cant understand - i must use lowest pressure on super soft (6) - lewis has bout 10. o_O
    are there more differences?
    my tyres are overheating after one lap :confused:

    setup at the moment
    gears vmax 7th 309km/h
    tyres supersoft 6 psi all
    17liters
    aero front 16 rear 15
    brake 54
    front arb 2

    many mistakes, so improvement possible, but as aris mentioned bout the modern f1 cars - when you feel that something is going wrong you have nearly no time to react. you must react before it happens....o_O

    Yeah very annoying. It’s got to be 1/2 second or slightly more of an handicap that

    I'm not sure it's that much TBH, done a bit of testing this morning and the benefits are minimal (at least in my tests, but maybe I'm not deploying it at the optimum times), my fastest lap so far is 1:33:9 and that was KERS free (will post a pic up later if I don't better it)

    The biggest gain I can find is running low downforce and running wide off the track at Copse, seems like no track limits applied here on PC (or at least very generous ones). I did a 33:6 like this but discounted that as it's no way a valid lap in real life

    I'm having a similar tyre issue to Sissydriver….SS are cooked by sector 3 which is really compromising Stowe and the last couple of corners....
     
  8. There is KERS on console!
    When you activate it you will see the yellow bar (under the revs and speedo HUD) start to fill up. Once the yellow bar is full, your KERS allowance for the lap is finished. (R2 button on G29.)
    But you don't need KERS Lewis!!:cool:

  11. If you run wide at Copse on the console version, your power is sapped and you loose speed and lots of time.
    If your tyres are cooked before the end of the lap, up the psi by one all round and see if that helps. I'm at 22psi, 21psi across the front and 20psi,19psi across the rears and unless I lock a wheel or slide they make it round ok. You will see the front left shoot from green to red through Copse on the HUD, but it seems to cool quite quickly.

    Yeah it’s a strange one at copse with the track limits and even on console it’s too forgiving.
    but you do lose a lot of speed and time running wide

    Ok starting to get somewhere. Thanks again Lewisxbone. Using a different ratio but I realised you can bring down that pressure. Helps a lot for me

    copse i must lift atm, think its driver issue - there i loose ~ 0.3s
    kers gives me wellington and hangar each >0.3s (compared to my previous speed there, hard to say if i was late on pedal to the metal or what is really going on)
    deep braking at stowe and brooklands is a lottery at the moment, my best laps are each ~0.2-0.4 faster in this sectors.
    so if everything is perfect my best lap can be a low 1.33 or high 1.32 - thats enough for me.

    dont wont to pay for the setup, but the video is good

    Video below, ran very wide out of M&B which lost me time on the straight, and nearly binned it out of the final turn.....
