    Notes
    Xbox 360 Version of the Game; Standard Xbox wireless Gamepad; all assists off; Time Trial tested only on 27:10:14 (will update with career times).

    Best time so far: 1m25.7s with all assists off.

    The car is fairly stable with good traction until sector three, which I think is worse than ever for traction issues this year. I haven't tested it, but I suspect that TC assist could deliver a faster lap time. The Williams feels "loose", no matter what I have tried, particularly compared to the Ferrari. My sector 1 and 2 times are fairly consistent with this setup; sector 3 is a bit problematic, particularly the final chicane. After chasing a faster Williams ghost (also assists off) and amending my line after turn two I am confident there is a full second for me to gain with this setup and probably a load more for a better driver. Looking at the Williams results in the Xbox TT standings, this seems a fairly respectable time for assists off. Adapting the racing line to the car's behaviour seems to get results.

    I've made a few changes to that set up so try the updated version and see how you go with that now

    I'm losing time in turn 3 (the long right-hander), there is so much understeer there, no matter what setup I try.

    Trying another line as entry to that corner might help you. Entering wide the apex could save you from understeer and you'll have better exit speed.

    I've tried a wider entry but I still exit to wide of the corner and I have to let go of the throttle a bit...and that's when I loose about a half a second...I've won every race so far in the season on Legend...10 races, 9 wins...Only in Barcelona I've been third

    Turn 3 was a little tricky for me also, but a little change on race line made it easy. Going close to apex on turn 2 and having a wider entry on turn 3 helped a lot to be on full throttle on apex and exit.
