it can be unlocked by braking. Here a video...

Hi there, we're looking into this now - seeing if we can replicated it and identify any issue to fix. Could you give us a little more information please, such as the device and steering/input options you're using? Thanks 🙂

iphone 8 - ios 12.1.3

Automatic acceleration -  high sensibility steering

No brake no balance help only low steering help

I realized this happens when DRS is on.. when DRS is off steering is OK at last sector..

Try setting your assists to medium.

There may be more optimum settings to mitigate this anomaly , I haven't taken the time to test.

I'm old and slow with bad eyes and poor reflexes so the assists don't hurt my lap times :classic_biggrin:

I already did. The cornering improves... but if you watch the video you ll see I turn the wheel completely to left..  the world turns not the car 🙂

I'm getting through ok at about the same speed/rpm, steering & braking on medium, iPad Pro.

Your line in the first video  looks a little far to the right?

Second video corner entry looks a little fast, you go into 8th gear mid apex?

Also just noticed, especially in your video, looks like the game is showing that turn (or the camera) significantly off camber when right?

Have to say I'm impressed if the game captured this nuance of the track.

https://www.mclaren.com/formula1/2017/russian-grand-prix/track-tips-and-circuit-stats/

Tips if you're a gamer

Focus on two sections of the track in particular. First, Turn Three, a horseshoe-shaped left-hander. With the extra downforce produced by the 2017 cars, it should be ‘easy-flat’ this year, so think about the possibilities that presents, like going around the outside of rivals and getting the inside line into Turn Four. Second, take a look at Turns 13, 14, 15 and 16 – the most intense sequence of corners on the lap. Braking for Turn 13 is tricky because it’s on a bend and the corner exits are off-camber, making it tricky to get the power down. It’s easy to lose a lot of time in this latter section.

Maybe try a setup with less power and more handling?  (add the front wing.

I get through ok with this:

It didn't feel like the car wasn't turning enough, felt like not responding... same thing in Paul Ricard after the longest straight
