Practice and qualifying:
Long practice sessions are most beneficial. Setting up is vitally important
at the higher difficulty levels and in long practice sessions you get fewer
cars on the track so you get a better idea of how your car is performing.
Always use the set-up option to adjust one option at a time to see how
performance and handling are affected.
The gears are the key to acceleration. Once you're happy with the wings you
can adjust the ratios to give you an advantage over the majority of cars.
There are advantages to both long and short qualifying sessions. A five or
ten-minute session means everyone tries to get on the circuit at once and at
best there is only time for two qualifying sessions. The fastest drivers
might not get the fastest times because they are likely to get stuck behind
the slower drivers - this might work for or against you. You just have to get
out on the track first and clock a good time. In a long qualifying session
everyone gets a much better chance.
Watch how the other drivers are performing on the accelerated time view and
spot the best ones. After you've got a good qualifying run watch how the
other cars deal with the bends chicanes and slower drivers. When you've
learnt the best tactics and are out qualifying in earnest watch out for cars
which have finished qualifying and heading back to the pits because they
won't be too bothered about letting you past.
DRIVE FASTER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE
DON'T FORGET YOUR SANDWICHES
Carry on reading ....
Not surprisingly it's important that you get the right tyres. Qualifying
tyres will definitely survive one lap and may even survive a second.
Generally A and B tyres are for experienced drives while Cs are best for most
A and B tyres should last the entire race providing your set-up is right but
if you danage a wing and have to enter the pits for a replacement you lose
C tyres are perfect for slow circuits and long races. With them you should
only have one pit stop in a long race.
D tyres are good for races under 20 laps - any longer and you have too many
pit stops for you to have an advantage.
If you're not good enough to make first place on the grid just put your foot
down and get going. If you're further back you have to know the circuits and
take every opportunity to overtake other cars. For example at Montreal
thgere;s a hairpin bend immediately after the pit straight. All the cars
bunch up along its outside edge and then cut across the apex. You can gain
several places by zooming around the inside line - just make sure you stay on
On the straights you can take advantage of slip-streaming but don't take
unnecessary risks which could put you out of the race. Don't be afraid to
back off if you get too close when approaching a corner - better safe than
sorry. Bide your time on slow circuits when there are few places to overtake.
These slow-coaches refuse to let you pass so you've just got to put your foot
down and try to get past as soon as you can. If possible make your move just
before a corner so that any cars following you get stuck behind the back
marker and you can get further ahead and hopefully on to win the race.
If you spin off the track your wing mirrors won't show you all the cars
coming up behind you. Select spin gear and then switch to an external view so
you can get safely back on to the track without having to worry about being
hit by another car.
Cheating in qualifying:
If you have selected two cars concentrate on one as your main driver and make
sure you secure a good qualifying time. With the second driver trundle round
the circuit the wrong way and when you see a PC controlled car crash into it.
This is a recognised technique among certain well-known F1 drivers. Try to
cause a big pile up of cars in the same place. This confuses the marshalls so
it takes them longer to clear up the mess and the more powerful cars are less
likely to secure good qualifying times. It's all good dirty underhanded fun
and if it helps you win the race ...
Cheating at Spa:
Don't bother qualifying and start the race in 25th position. Head into the
put lane when the race starts. Turn the pit-call light off and put your foor
to the floor. When you exit the pits you should be in first place. The only
trouble is that the second car is still a back marker so you have to work
hard to move it up the field.
Cheating with chicanes:
Cars don't get damaged when they bounce over the ground which means that you
can gain seconds by driving straight over chicanes at tracks such as Montreal
Hockenheim and Monza. Fly through the chicane at high speed and when your car
lands on the grass drop down a couple of gears and accelerate away.
You can gain an advantage by pushing back markers into the path of other
cars. Get right alongside the car you want to nudge and strike a glancing
blow but try not to get your wheels tangled with the other car's. Should this
occur spin wildly off the course explode in an atractive ball of flame and
take up needlework instead.
