I used stick with right foot braking, heel-toe downshifts.I think the timings are too tight for clutchless shifting?
I'm going to have to risk clutchless downshifts as I lost around 1.5-2 sec/lap heel-toeing.
Just slip the clutch like I do.
You know about my dislike for chicanes, rolling starts and blue flags, well you can toss is heel 'n' toe with that lot too.
What's ruling out heel-toe would rule that out as well.
If there's any lateral force at all (Aqua Minerali & the kink before Rivazza mainly), the car gets very unstable when I lift off the throttle to apply the brake.
I usually overlap the throttle/brake under lateral load to avoid this.
What I did Tuesday was to either brake earlier of lift and coast before the lateral force came in.
The other technique I used was 'hybrid', left foot brake initially and swap feet half way through
the braking zone, when I needed to shift.
But I still had to brake early to give me room to swap feet on the brake so I could use the clutch, resulting in reduced retardation during the "foot dance".
use of the clutch on downshifts requires right foot braking and extended braking distances.
