Circuit by circuit pit lane times and downforce levels

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Leon Blake, Oct 6, 2011.

  1. Right since rules in F1 changes nearly every season, certain aspects on the car has to change to accommodate for new rules that force the teams to add/remove certain components to the car. Now on F1 2010 you could get away with ridiculously low wing levels, so out comes F1 2011 and guess what, you cannot replicate these settings. So I have Taken the liberty of getting the downforce levels for each track (as it helps me to get a base setting for my downforce when setting up my car) and as an extra bonus I have also added the pitlane time loss for those of you that were either wondering how much time you do actually lose in the pits at certain tracks, or for those of you who like to factor this little extra into you race stratergy. Either way I hope it helps.

  2. Very usefull! Thx mate.
     
  3. I disagree with a few of these.

    Valencia is low-medium downforce. Lots of hairpins and what fast corners there are can be taken flat even with not much downforce.
    Abu Dhabi is low-medium downforce. Doesn't have that many fast corners, and has some mega-straights. You can take sector one pretty flat even without much downforce, which only really leaves the last two corners.
    Brazil is low downforce for me. Plenty of corners, but also very slow corners.
     
  4. @TGApples, if you'd care to read properly I called it a 'Base setting' (somewhere to start from, then edit for your own preference)
     
  5. That's fine. I just disagree with some of your base settings :p
     
  6. canada is a very low downforce track . there is not one red bull corner and 6 straights
