Improve overall speed.

Conclusion

The Ferrari 599XX Evo is a hard car that requires finesse. The key points to take away are getting to 100% braking is very important and keep practicing your trail braking. Hard on the brakes then trail braking into the turn.

Assigned Task

There is more work to do at Mugello with the Ferrari. Jump into a few race scenarios with the AI set at around 84%. Enjoy the race. Then jump back to multiple sessions of hotlapping. Important though....refer back to the reference lap to see where improvements can be made.

1st key mistake: 

Inconsistent throttle application

Why it matters

Picked up in your 2nd training plan, Mugello is a tricky track to master

How much of a problem it is for you

With approximately 15% of all of your mistakes being this one, it is still a relatively common mistake and easily fixed with more practice and lap consistency.

See an example in your own sessions

In segment 1, even though it might seem minor, this hesitation with the throttle is costing you a lot of time.  Smooth and constant is the preferred motion and get to that goal of 100% throttle as soon as you can.

Mugello is a good track to test your throttle control.  A couple of double / long chicane corners that require you to be tight on the first part so that you can accelerate out quicker on the second half.

2nd key mistake:

Braking too early

Why it matters

This mistake will keep cropping up until you master a track. Trial and error, with constant adjustment will get you there.

How much of a problem it is for you

A bit more than 10% of your mistakes are related to this so it's worth paying attention to.

See an example in your own sessions

For example, in segment 8, the braking point is much later.

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.

3rd key mistake: 

Coming on and off the brakes inconsistently

Why it matters

Braking as late as possible requires you to apply the brakes consistently and thoughtfully. Coming on and off the brakes does not just increase your braking distance; it also negatively affects the car's balance and makes it more likely to under- or oversteer.

How much of a problem it is for you

With 10% of all of your mistakes being this one, it is still a relatively common mistake and easily fixed with more practice.

See an example in your own sessions

Segment 7 is a perfect example of how the reference lap brakes late, hits 100% then trail brakes out. As a result, you lose more than 1.5 seconds in this segment alone.
