    I'm playing on PS4, but are you actually steering with a keyboard? That sounds ridiculous! I can't imagine staying on the racing line let alone doing it with any kind of tire wear efficiency. If it's a button you can't control how much force you're using...

    I think you ought to buy a wheel...

    Just connect a controller(ps4 or xbox) to your pc and play with that

    In this tyre management programme, I've not once gotten a good lap. When driving around the turns, the slier slips to Red unless it's expected You take the corner slow but that's not possible as there's a certain time that we need to best & it's not possible to succeed in it if driving slow.

    It can be tricky asnd you won't always pass but one thing that does help me have a better chance is try to do allthe braking you need to do before the turn in then turn and once you're out accelerate again. Generally the most difficult parts aer the long sweeping corners such as Suzuka's S curves  at the start of the lapand those long turns in China but other than that if you follow what I've said that usually works. I play on keyboard as well and this is how I've managed to do it best. It's still tricky but it's the best way to do it on keyboard I think. It's just a case of taking things a little easier to ease the stress and strain on the tyres

    The kerbs in the game play a very unusual part. In the tyre management programme when going over them, the slider goes towards Red. It also really baffles me that the car's acceleration slows down when driving over a kerb. I think it's not factual.

    Actual kerbs (not painted ones used in very few circuits) used in most tracks are like sawtooth patterned flaps. They aren’t just painted tarmac. There is significantly less grip on them. Usually drivers use them to run wide so they can carry more speed trough the previous corner but they usually don’t go full throttle on the kerb itself. The game models tire wear based on wheel slip/spin. So when you go on a kerb and the wheels spin, that increases tire wear.
