Goal

Competitive league training and hot lap times.

Conclusion

Nice consistent laps, a few more would be great to really get into the flow. Your top speed was significantly less than the reference lap which could be attributed to your ERS running out at the end of the straights (something to keep an eye on). On certain corner combinations, S3 at Imola. It isn't necessary to use the brake, lifting off the throttle is often enough and also has the added benefit of not unsettling the car too much.

Assigned Task

Some technical items to explore. Look at your ERS settings and adjust for the track, as you want to maintain your speed along the whole straight. Practice lifting the throttle instead of feeling the need to brake. Try not to run too wide on exit as this can unsettle the car too much (this is a fine balance between too much / too little). Again, smooth transitions are key for you to get faster.

Time to drive a different track. Head to Spa and experiment with your setup for optimal race and hotlap races. Wings and Battery usage.

1st key mistake: 

Too much braking

Why it matters

If you stay at 100% braking for too long you'll be removing unnecessary time on track.

How much of a problem it is for you

12% of your mistakes are about braking too much.

See an example in your own sessions

If you look at segment 2, you'll see that you are at 100% braking longer than the reference lap.  Also you've dropped into fourth gear which will be another reason that you are losing around half a second in this segment

Learn to improve

On the braking tab, study the graph to see where you've failed to achieve a similar curve to the reference lap.  Small alterations will help you formulate a better corner strategy.  Balance corner entry, apex and exit speeds to achieve optimal results.

2nd key mistake:

Braking too late

Why it matters

Do not brake too late as this will cause the car to lose traction
and you'll be struggling to get the throttle down soon enough.
Instead, brake early and smoothly so that the car can maintain
its speed and momentum. The old adage slow in fast out is
exactly what we need here.

How much of a problem it is for you

25% of your mistakes are braking errors. 6% of these are braking too late.

See an example in your own sessions

Look at segment 5, Your late braking, coupled with dropping down one gear too many is affecting your segment time.

Learn to improve

Practice and consistency are your friends here.  As long as your approach speed is very similar to other laps then the braking point won't need to be adjusted.  Thus a consistent corner time can be achieved.  If however your previous corner was good or bad you'll need to adjust accordingly.  A hard skill to master.

3rd key mistake: 

Inconsistent throttle application

Why it matters

A consistent increased application of the throttle is critical to hitting those fastest corner deltas. Releasing or easing off the throttle are common traits until you master a corner.

How much of a problem it is for you

Around 7% of your errors are linked to inconsistently applying your throttle

See an example in your own sessions

When you study segment 6, you'll see that on multiple laps you are completely coming off the gas in the first part of the segment.  This can be taken at 100% then heavy braking and a smooth constant application of the throttle pedal is needed.

Throttle management is complex and takes a lot of practice, this video highlights many aspects of corner exit and encourages smooth throttle control as an absolute necessity.
