Conclusion

Driving the Ferrari, is a tricky beast. Sort out your gearing and your times will rapidly come down. If you are into racing as well as hot lapping. Consistency is an absolute necessity.

Assigned Task

Your choice of car / track again but complete 3 sessions each with a minimum of 6 laps and remain with +/- 2.5 seconds on every lap.

1st key mistake: 

Gear too low

Why it matters

A mistake in your first training plan. With the SF70H, this is often a common mistake

How much of a problem it is for you

A few less mistakes than last time. Currently at 18%.

See an example in your own sessions

An example can be seen through segment 5, through the chicane dropping down to third gear is a half second mistake.  Check out the Speed tab of the chart and this helps highlight (with the focus zone) that third gear was too low.

Learn to improve

If the car is feeling sluggish or is revving too high, this is a good indication that you are in too low a gear.  If you feel this might be the case, start a new session and drive two laps, first in the suspected wrong gear and then one gear higher.  Check out your live delta, it'll give you your answer.

2nd key mistake:

Not trail braking

Why it matters

In F1 trail braking is a tricky technique to learn. The power, speed and downforce negate the feeling of trail braking. However, the graphs show what is necessary to lower your lap times.

How much of a problem it is for you

11% of all of your mistakes are related to trail braking.

See an example in your own sessions

A good example can be found in segment 15. Generally you are good at trail braking but just a few times you forget.

Learn to improve

Here is an interesting video explaining the trail braking technique.  Study and try to implement it on the majority of your corners.

3rd key mistake: 

Braking too early

Why it matters

A good mistake to make since it's so easy to fix! You simply need to find a slightly later braking point to maximise your lap time potential.

How much of a problem it is for you

A bit more than 12% of your mistakes are related to this so it's worth paying a lot of attention to.

See an example in your own sessions

For example, in segment 5, the braking point is much later.

Learn to improve

It's not just about getting on the brake pedal later, it's also about technique. Check out our guide on how to brake later easily.
