I may miss this race as well....and all future races until I get this fixed. Anyone have issues launching the sim after the latest update? The sim freezes immediately after launch with no error codes. Tried all the basic things like driver updates and a re-install of the service to no avail.
Thanks Owen.Here's what I got so far guys. I took my Monza set and added more wing and made a couple of other changes. Turn 6 (Michael-Schumacher-S) can get a littler hairy, especially if the track heats up. I was debating making the set more comfortable for it but I had to sacrifice too much in the other corners so I'll just go with what I got for now. You can raise the front 1 tick if it's a little too slippery, and if the track really heats up we might need to add some wing.
I was able to get low 54s consistently with race fuel (85tt), probably can get in mid to high 53s in qualifying assuming the track doesn't get too hot. I only have about 45 min of practice so far so there is definitely more speed to be found.
See you guys on Thursday!
To help clarify just in case anyone wonders this about similar situations in the future. Yes, we could change with 4 days to prepare but there are a number of factors as to why we ask organizers to not change major elements like the track or layout this close to the event. The biggest one is that we are averaging around 8-12 broadcasts a week most months. So each race is not our only focus during the week. We're preparing for a number of other events that take up our time. With multiple people involved in making each show kick off, changing major factors can disrupt how much time they have. For example, Dougie our camera guy updates cameras frequently and that is a time consuming task. There are also assets that can't always be prepared at short notice such as the video track guides. While we do try to stay on top of having as big a library, it's still ill advised to change it on the off chance we don't have one ready yet. Also, we are advertising events with our calendar and social media at least a week in advance. While it's not the end of the world if a track changes after the posts go out, we don't want it to happen often of course.Why do you think the broadcasters can’t adjust with 4 days to prepare exactly?
