Season just got longer,  see first post

I know they are not tracks that these likely raced on,  but we are going on a racing holiday in the past with our cars
You have made mine and I am sure many others day, but maybe not Wally's  :).

Final round unless we want to do a few more in this awesome car, But maybe everyone has had enough,  let me know  8) ;D
I would like to spend some more time with this car, imho it is one of the best open wheelers/cars we have tried :).

Well done Bacchulum you really know how to get the most out of this car. Another great night of racing , one of the best visually that I can remember, having cars 6 wide across a track jockeying for position is not something you see very often  ;D ;D ;D :o :o :o 8) 8) 8).

What is the best way to watch live/replays (must be in HD) of F1 races in 2019, does not have to be for free.

I am enjoying Netflix F1 Doco, interesting and funny.

Was great to catch up with the other XGN guys in Melbourne :).

If you are not familiar with this track, I would suggest some practice, if you want to get the best out of  racing at the  recreation of this beautiful old circuit :) :) :).

Alfa Romeo 158/47

Equipped with the missing supercharger. :o
Subbed out the ugly as sin wheels and tyres for new ones including blur.
Trailing arm front (instead of DWB) and Swing axle rear (instead of Live axle) suspensions.
Rear suspension now moves with the wheels.

To do: LODs and HR/LR cockpit

Thanks Seanus, looking forward to it.
To follow: A period matching Ferrari 125

I have a ticket to some Friday night gala, but I think you might need a tie for that (which I don't have), so Margarita's sounds like a good alternative. ;)
Margies would be much more fun

Did no one use my setups this round? :'(
I found out I'd lost 5% throttle (again), now I red line 3/4 the way up the straight with it fixed.
I thought someone would've mentioned this. :-\
I always use your gearing Bacchulum, I did redline in 4th gear, most people would not have the corner exit speed you can achieve and probably would not have noticed :).

Max Verstappen in the Red Bull in 2019 Barcelona preseason testing

Ferrari comfortably led in the race simulations (by an average of around 0.3sec), where the Red Bull was comparably fast to the Mercedes – but again, let’s acknowledge the raw processing and brain power that will be being unleashed on the W10 between now and then.

We await to see how Honda’s qualifying modes compare with those of Ferrari and Merc, for that is going to be key to the team’s prospects of sustaining a genuine title challenge.

For all that we’ve seen several of the ‘midfield’ teams set the best headline times of the day, it was invariably done by having a softer compound of tyre fitted than the big boys. There still appears to be a significant gap between the top three and a very tightly-bunched group comprising Renault, Haas, Toro Rosso, Alfa Romeo, McLaren and Racing Point.

There really seems only around 0.5sec between the front of this group and the back (i.e. between seventh and 18th!) so the actual order will be pretty volatile and probably dependent upon who hooks it up best at the critical time.

Bringing up the rear pretty solidly (around 1.2sec off the penultimate) is Williams but initial feedback from the drivers suggests its problems are not as fundamental as those of last year’s disastrous car.

Without knowing precise fuel load comparisons, here’s our take of one-lap pace as things stood heading into the final day, based not only on the actual times but the circumstances:
Gap    Team
0sec    Ferrari
0.3sec    Mercedes
0.2sec    Red Bull
0.4sec    Renault
0.1sec    Haas
     Toro Rosso
     Alfa Romeo
     Racing Point
1.2sec    Williams

And just for those who are about to pipe up with ‘you can’t tell anything from testing’, yes you’re probably right up to a point. But let’s take a look at how we called it at the end of testing this time last year – and compare to the grid we got in Melbourne.
     MS 2018 testing analysis    2018 Melbourne Grid
1    Mercedes    Mercedes
2    Ferrari    Ferrari
3    Red Bull    Red Bull
     Big Gap    Big Gap
4    Renault    Haas
5    Haas    Renault
6    McLaren    McLaren
     Gap    Gap
7    Toro Rosso    Force India
8    Williams    Willliams
9    Force India    Toro Rosso
10    Sauber    Sauber

Not spot-on, but pretty close – and we even tipped Force India to be more competitive in Melbourne than they had been in testing and that there was very little to choose between Renault, Haas and McLaren. The test times do mean something if you read them carefully.

Pierre Gasly, Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel in 2019 Barcelona testing

So later today preseason testing will be over and the reality of Melbourne beckons.

What we’ve seen from the two weeks of Barcelona is a Ferrari that appears viceless, poised – and very quick, a car that’s hit the track running.

The Honda-powered Red Bull looks somewhere around as competitive as last year’s Renault-powered car, while Mercedes seems to have struggled to consistently find the W10’s sweet spot and though it has proved ultimately capable of lapping within a couple of tenths of the Ferrari, it’s taken a bit of sweat to get it there.

We await to see how Honda’s qualifying modes compare with those of Ferrari and Merc, for that is going to be key to Red Bull’s prospects of sustaining a genuine title challenge

Lewis Hamilton ultimately got to within thousandths of Sebastian Vettel’s best time – but this was as the Ferrari was sidelined with an electrical issue. This – and Valtteri Bottas’s pace in the morning of the final day – suggested Mercedes had made progress in understanding the heavily updated aero package it brought for week 2, but the Ferrari pace seemed to come easier.   

We can bet on Mercedes finding answers in the two available weeks – but enough to challenge the red cars? Lewis Hamilton inevitably brings a chunk of lap time in his own personal performance around Albert Park – he’s regularly been up to 0.6sec faster than his team-mate there, regardless of who that is.

With its shorter corners, it’s a place where a driver can find more than at Barcelona from taking the car by the scruff of its neck. But as things stand as of today, even Hamilton’s hustle might not be enough.

This time last year Mercedes was heading to Australia with what appeared to be marginally the quickest car. Hamilton then set a devastating pole lap from out of nowhere but subsequent races suggested that was more driver than car and that the actual advantage was negligible or non-existent. This time it would be very difficult to read the testing times in a way that suggested Ferrari wasn’t the quickest by a small but significant margin.

Charles Leclerc’s Thursday time of 1min 16.2sec on the softest tyre (C5) came on a short, light-fuel, run. This was matched by Vettel on Friday. Bottas on a C4 that Pirelli reckons to be 0.6sec slower took his Merc around in 1min 16.6sec – so potentially a faster time even than Ferrari if that tyre offset is accurate for the Merc.

Just read the readme, when CM install didn't work, and saw this:

to install copy the Romacircuit2018 folder to: GTR2 \ Gamedata \ Locations

I don't think it's AC, damn it. :'(
Sorry Bacchulum, I can't even find where I got it from :'( :'(
