Extreme tyre wear at Singapore

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Gareth Jones, Feb 3, 2012.

  1. Hi All,

    I'm at Singapore practice in my career and am experiencing some ridiculous tyre wear, I did about 2 laps on primes and when I got back to the garage, I saw the tyres were already down to 75%. The options are even worse, I did 4 laps on those and they went down to around 20%.

    I haven't experienced this on any other track so far, has anyone else had this? At this rate I will have to do at least a five stop race, that's if I have any tyres left!

    My setup is not that extreme either, front roll bar is on 3, f/r springs are 10/8 and the f/r camber is around 3-4 clicks from the centre.
     
  2. Yep it's like that but there's no problem to make 6 laps on options and 10-11 laps on primes during 50% race. Double for 100%. Wait until you go to Korea :) In my career I play 50% races and in Korea tyres are totally gone after 4 laps options and 8 laps primes :) Even the engeneer told me to pit cause my tyres were extremely worn :)

    Ive not had that much trouble im at Singapore now and managed 16 laps on primes so im looking at a 3/4 stop race for 100%.

    Well I just finished my full race at Singapore and I can say that you can do 16 laps on primes maybe a few more laps but I didn't want to push my luck. Options I couldn't really get to know as mine were already warn.
     
  6. I just finished my race too, the recommended pit stop was a four stop (50% race) so I stuck with that. the options held up better than the primes, I had to pit a lap early on them because the car just wouldn't corner. I ended up pitting five times including for a new nose.
     
  7. Strange cause I usually make only 3 stops at Singapore - start on options and then pri - pri - opt
