    10 Place Grid Penalty for a new gear box

    Not sure about this case but there is also another bug(or something i can't understand!?), if you unlock an extra PU component outside of your allocation to race on it (like the fourth ICE or the 3rd CE) ,or even picking the extra one for all of your PU components just before starting the race session (i mean after the Qualy when you are at the control center) you will get the penalty caution but will be starting the race on your original grid position while using new elements... in Chinese GP it was a wet/dry qualy and i have managed to leave the garage at the last part of it and got a P3 with my McLaren as only 4-5 drivers got their lap on dry compound, so i saw the situation is good to take one extra ICE for later races and start from a reasonable P8 but i got no penalty on my new ICE! for research purpose i have load it back to that point and try to unlock extra ones outside of the allocation for all parts of PU, a fresh set of a complete PU and the result was the same, got penalty caution/notification but no penalty received, maybe i'll get it for the next race? i doubt it as i'm sure it will be considered a change before the current GP ends(before the race) this extra ICE of PU components was a big gift for my McLaren career lol
  2. So it updates my ongoing Career cars, thanks that's good, but why ferrari have the best AERO by a distance to mercedes and red bull? yeah it's efficient but in no way the best!!!

    Approach to Qualifying (Tires)

    Hi i'm in no way an expert or something more than an entry-level amateur simracer, but my humble strategy for saving one set of soft in Q1 is : I will leave the box for my outlap around 7-8 mins to end, using lean mix+ low ERS (super slow outlap) and without trying to warm or wear my tyre, i will start my first timed lap with minimum tyre wear/temp (maximum 2% wear), so it will be my initial/test run to have a benchmark for my next lap, at the start of my second lap i will be on the optimum tyre temp with a low wear(as i have almost eliminated tyre wear from my outlap, it will be maximum of 5% wear) and almost always my second lap will be way better than the first lap this is how i save 1 set of tyre by eliminating one extra run in Q1 in McLaren (it always worked for me in F1 2018 and f1 2017 and now in F1 2019) and i'll have my 2 sets of soft for Q3 where it won't work? *this method won't work comfortably with lower teams, but with McLaren/Racingpoint/renault you can normally go to Q2 if you make no significant mistakes in your 2 laps, so you have to do a little more practice, sometimes i use TimeTrial for practicing my Q runs, like a role-playing element i pretend i'm a real F1 driver and TimeTrial is my simulator for practicing between sessions or when i'm not in a GP weekend *also it won't work if you are doing lower than 100% races as your tyre wear in Qualy will be scaled hugely and after one lap you will have more than 10% wear *in some of the long tracks in F1 it can go wrong, like suzuka,COTA,spa, as your initial lap will wear the *** of your boots *i'm using wheel , maybe the result and tyre wear or temp management is different on pad You can also use this method in Q3 at circuits that you think your are not starting your fastest lap on the optimum tyre temp, somewhere like monaco or monza doing an "super slow outlap+ one initial lap" before your ultimate lap will make you able to start your fastest lap on better tyre temp. optimum tyre temp with 5-6% of tyre wear will be better than having 2-3% of tyre wear on low tyre temp when you are starting your ultimate lap.

    F1 2019 rb15 understeer

    Hi, what is your setup in austria? I'm not an expert in setup and driving but this setup working fine for me in Australia and Austria: aero: 6 3 Transmission: 80 85 suspension geometry 2.70 1.20 0.08 0.29 suspension: 4 4 8 6 3 4 Brakes: 78 56 Tyres: 23.4 21.5 i don't know if i'm doing it wrong or not but i'm in a McLaren _that has less grip and aero than RB_and i have minimum understeer, it seems you are already trying setup changes , there is no harm in testing this too ,only if your rear end break traction you can add an extra point on rear wing to this, also change brake pressure to your taste. Good luck.
