How to get a good manual racestart on a controller

Hello everyone,
This is my first year playing a f1 game,
And im really enjoying it, im getting pretty good in every aspect of the game (have to say im playing with all assists on)
Butt one thing i really dont understand are the manual racestarts.
Im getting alot of wheelspin all the time, i have tried a lot of variations: doing less rpm, less or more throttle butt nothing helps.
And is there a difference between what to do whith dry or wet race starts?

Does somebody have any tips it will be very appreciated. Im playing with ps4 controller

    You’ll struggle for a good start with the assists all on. Practice getting use to the game with them down. Personally I’d give a few practice races a go on medium assists an then gradually work then off. Starts massively can be helped by doing this. Otherwise you are doomed every time. 

    It’s a lot of practice An luck following that. Some tracks like real life take longer for lights out which can end up with false starts.

    It has taken me almost a year where I can drive without traction control.  The only assists I use are abs on low, my fingers have been broken a few times and don't work very well for controlling ERS, braking,
