Improve around Catalunya

Conclusion

An absolute necessity for you is to calibrate your brake pedal to avoid the classic dragging telemetry stats that are being shown. Segments 2, 6 and 10 all have the braking spike that needs to be avoided. You'll shave half a second off your times with consistent lapping and the software fix for the pedal dead zone.

Assigned Task

Adjust your pedal to give you a 1-3% dead zone. Test on your latest track, check the graph and make sure it isn't similar to segment 4 of Barcelona.

1st key mistake: 

Gear too low

Why it matters

There are many situations on track where it is better to run the car in a higher gear to gain full potential from the engine.

How much of a problem it is for you

'Gear used is too low contributes' to 21% of your mistakes.

See an example in your own sessions

An example can be found in segment 3. Notice how the reference lap chooses to get into each gear quicker than yourself.

Learn to improve

Refer back to the reference lap to get tips on gear changes and also learn and watch for the upper limits of the revs with the HUD.

2nd key mistake:

Unnecessary braking

Why it matters

Even a small amount of unnecessary braking will heavily impact your lap times.

How much of a problem it is for you

These mistakes add up with slower lap times. 19% of your mistakes are due to unnecessary braking.

See an example in your own sessions

The reference lap is able to achieve no braking at all in segment 4. Your 4-5% braking, is a problem that can be avoided.   Even though it sounds small this difference is costing approximately half a second over 2 segments.

Learn to improve

In Training Plan 7 - this mistake also showed up.  It is crucial to get out of the habit of dragging your brakes.


"If you find that you often rest your left foot on the brake, double check that it is never engaging the brakes.  Also, in this case blips can be attributed to not having the confidence to use the whole wide of the track thus feeling that the brake needs to be used."

3rd key mistake: 

Coming on/off brakes inconsistently

Why it matters

This habit is usually a sign of a slight lack of confidence. Will I / won't I make the corner.

How much of a problem it is for you

15% of your mistakes are linked to coming on and off the brakes.

See an example in your own sessions

Clearly shown in segment 12, of your fastest lap.  This isn't always the case, as can be seen in some of your slower laps in segment 12.  Consistency will lower your lap times.

Learn to improve

Consistency will be your friend when it comes to controlling braking strength and amount.  As a training technique, try and produce the same braking curve over 5-10 laps, even if you have to sacrifice a little speed to do so.
