    you have to get used to matching your engine revs to speed - rev matching is a skill applied by real racing drivers. don't know how important in formula 1 but i guess synchronised shifting helps you monitor the revs more easily - if you shift too quickly the revs will be too high and the engine roars. you have to get used to listening to the engine.

    it is best to "push" the brake pedal in rather than slam. do it smoothly. by the time you have compressed the pedal, start shifting down. you CAN shift quickly if you have reduced the speed significantly - almost like you are allowing the gears to catch up to the revs.

    i seem to go faster tho when i brake first and then gradually downshift so that a) i'm not damaging engine but b) using SOME engine braking to slow the car through even well timed shifts. this is especially effective in the rain.
     
  11. Also happened to me with Ferrari. Damn, I cant play. : / (Automatic gear change.)
