By far the trickiest track for me, thus far. I had the chance of doing a few laps yesterday, and even at 100% grip, I was spinning fairly often. This car (or at least my setup) seems to hate those fast corners and slippery kerbs. Arrabbiata 1-2 is quite something in this, and I understeer quite a bit with the throttle down on all those S's... which then puts me on the slippery kerbs, where I think my floor stalls and I lose it...

It will be interesting with low grip on Tue.

Thats how my car has felt every race so far,   very edgy and feels like could spin every turn of the wheel
 I cant set it up and just going with the flow now,  love driving an open wheeler so just enjoying it while I can
I don't really know
If I care what is normal

My car feels quite stable. I haven't strayed far from the default setup. It doesn't like kerbs though, and the kerbs here at Mugello have always been tricky.

That's interesting, because I found it smooth in the previous weeks. Of course, I find it very hard to extract much out of it, but it was not too edgy. Here it is...

I'm running an ultra high down force set up. It's good for a few laps, not sure how it will go over 20 laps though..

I want to set up the track to simulate the race day track, can somebody let me know what settings I should use, ie green, dusty? And temp ;)

Go for a fast track. You can check out the forecast via the link in the first post, go to the Tuesday tab and look at 13:00. Current forecast is 27 and clear.

It should be interesting. I can see that Simone and I are running different aero, so we have speed in different places.

The wind's going to be about twice as strong in race 2, blowing roughly along the straight from behind, so we might notice a difference in downforce in the afternoon race.


Grat, Kcender87, Phil and KeRo have all posted times in the 28s in practice.
