Conclusion

Some great fast driving over this period. Congratulations. Small errors are coming out related to indecision on the throttle and braking.

Assigned Task

Two key techniques to concentrate on. Firstly, avoid 'dabbing' , commit to your strategy. If needs be, a little slower until you've nailed it without, reapplying the brake or coming off the throttle. Consistent trail braking will help here. Secondly, mid exit try to push to full throttle quicker.

1st key mistake: 

Too late to full throttle

Why it matters

A previously highlighted mistake, getting up to full speed smoothly and quickly is important for shaving the tenths off your time.

How much of a problem it is for you

Over 20% of your mistakes are related to getting to full throttle too late.

See an example in your own sessions

Segment 10 highlights how you are losing a little time by getting to full throttle later than the reference lap driver.

Learn to improve

In the example given your delay in getting to full throttle would imply that you would lose more than 2 hundredths of a second.  It  is possible that the gear ratios are different between the reference and yourself.  Possibly also the track conditions.

2nd key mistake:

Not trail braking

Why it matters

Trail braking is very hard to get consistent at. Minor adjustments will affect the car rotation and stability

How much of a problem it is for you

Approximately 16% of your mistakes are due to minimal trail braking or not trail braking at all.

See an example in your own sessions

In segment 9 time is lost by being on the brakes a little too long and your trail braking.  Fine adjustments and nailing your braking points will shave a tenth off.

Learn to improve

Try to commit to your trail brake and drill in the need to perform the corner the same each time

3rd key mistake: 

Coming on and off the brakes inconsistently

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

10% of your errors are inconsistent braking.

See an example in your own sessions

On a few of your laps, segment 2 is not optimal.  Mid esses you apply a little braking mid section, instead of braking a little later and then applying a quick steep trail brake.

Learn to improve

These blips on the throttle or the brake are no brainers.  If it is possible to achieve a corner or section without a 'dab' then it is best to do so.   With multiple curved segments, planning the exit strategy is sometimes a compromise between sacrificing a little on the initial bend.
