Finally got my pc back together but did not have the chance to work out any pit strategy stuff.
I got rear aero damage on the first lap and at about the 30 minute mark drifted wide into the wall at the sharp left hander and the end of the in-field section and ended up with front aero, engine and suspension damage. And a badly cracked windscreen.
I have no idea how to change pit strategy on the fly so at the halfway mark I just pitted and filled the tank and put on a new set of softs, and went back out with a cracked windscreen, front and rear aero damage, a damaged engine, damaged suspension and about enough fuel to circumnavigate the planet . Needless to say it was a long night for me, but I am pleased that I and my pc was there at the finished.
My next task is to figure out how this pit stop stuff works. lol.
