Conclusion

One segment accounted for 50% of your time lost against the reference lap. S2 can be aggressively attacked and the kerb used. If the car is feeling a little unresponsive add +1 to the front wing or a little more front camber.

Assigned Task

Similar to last week, make small adjustments (front camber and wing) and don't be afraid to push the limits of the track.

1st key mistake: 

Too much braking

Why it matters

Segment 2 is by far your worst segment. As it is a long, technical section all mistakes are compounded.

How much of a problem it is for you

This mistake happens quite often 15% of your mistakes can be attributed to this.

See an example in your own sessions

Check out segment 2, half a second can be blamed on the 2nd half of the esses and the 50% braking.

One suggestion would be to add a small low end deadzone for the brake as you are still sometimes dragging your brakes.

2nd key mistake:

Not tight enough around apex

Why it matters

No mistake is completely separate. An error in the braking can also effect the available racing line. Practice your corner / segment strategy to mirror as best as possible the reference lap.

How much of a problem it is for you

Also ~15% of your errors are linked to how you are positioned on the track related to the apex. In fact nearly 50% of all errors this week are categorised as racing line mistakes

See an example in your own sessions

We need to concentrate on segment 2 check out the racing line compared to the reference lap.  Running too wide leads to the need to brake more.

3rd key mistake: 

Running too wide in chicane

Why it matters

Chicane technique is crucial to a lap time as mistakes are multiplied as the entry, racing line and exit speed can really be affected and compounded by small errors.

How much of a problem it is for you

A specific mistake for the chicane but fixable with understanding the correct line.

See an example in your own sessions

For example, in Segment 1, your throttle and braking (just a little too much) were good but the racing line lost you your time.

Here is a tutorial for chicane technique that can be useful to understand.  Your technique is generally good in chicanes but there might be a couple of pointers for you.
