Focus on Imola

Conclusion

A good week with some great corners that are fast and smooth. Other corners need improving and this will come with more consistent trail braking.

Assigned Task

More aggressive braking is the biggest study area for you at the moment. Find full braking, quickly, aggressively and regularly. Try and do all that without locking up!

1st key mistake: 

Not trail braking

Why it matters

This is bound to pop up in your top 3 mistakes over the coming weeks. You have learnt the skill however, it is important to have consistency as well.

How much of a problem it is for you

A few less mistakes than last week. Currently at 16%.

See an example in your own sessions

An example can be seen through segment 2, on this corner specifically you don't use any trail braking on the majority of your laps.

Learn to improve

After completing a few laps, go back and review your session and count how many times you managed to perform a good trail brake on this corner.

2nd key mistake:

Braking too late

Why it matters

The desire to brake late is often strong. However, there is much more time to be gained on corner exit especially when it leads onto a long fast section.

How much of a problem it is for you

50% of your mistakes are braking errors. 13% of these are braking too late.

See an example in your own sessions

Look at segment 6, Your late braking, coupled with the need to stay on the brakes a tiny bit longer, makes this your fourth slowest segment. 

Learn to improve

To have confidence in maximising your braking, it is important to tweak your tire pressure.  Also, throughout a race, be aware of trying to maintain a healthy tire (avoiding locking up) but very important get to full braking as quickly as possible.

3rd key mistake: 

Too much braking

Why it matters

An easy mistake to compare against the reference lap in the braking section. With practice you'll be able to adjust the amount of braking you've applied.

How much of a problem it is for you

With 13% of all of your mistakes being this one, there is work to be done here.

See an example in your own sessions

Segment 3 shows a difference between the reference lap and your braking.  The 'thicker graph' shows that you are on the brakes too long, this mostly is due to not getting to 100% braking quick enough.

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.
