Conclusion

Solid lap times with quite a bit of room for improvement; mainly due to line and braking issues.

1st key mistake: 

Not using enough space on the exit

Why it matters

Your lines are generally really good but you consistently leave time on the table by not using all the available space on the exit.

More space enables you to accelerate earlier as you need to turn in less. The differences might seem marginal but as the exit speed gets carried down the following straight, it's an extremely impactful mistake to focus on.

How much of a problem it is for you

This mistake happens a lot; in fact almost 19% of your mistakes can be attributed to this.

See an example in your own sessions

A good example can be found in segment 11. See how even a little bit more space on the exit can have a huge speed advantage.

We won't bore you with a general video on racing lines but rather focus on this video to give you more confidence in which curbs to tackle and which ones to avoid.

2nd key mistake:

Braking too early

Why it matters

It goes without saying that braking later reduces your lap time (assuming you make the corner). Even in corners where the reference lap approaches the braking phase at a higher speed, you sometimes brake earlier. Focus on keeping your steering wheel straight to be able to brake as late as possible.

How much of a problem it is for you

With 13% 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 1 is a perfect example of losing all your time in the braking phase.

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 off the brakes too quickly

Why it matters

Brake pressure is not just about deceleration but also about manipulating the car's balance. Tiny differences in how you come off the brakes can mean vastly different grip levels on the front. You sometimes get down to zero brake pressure a tiny bit too early and as the front of the car lacks grip, start understeering.

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, see how much this little difference in trail braking leads to a much better line for the reference lap.
