    Because i pretty much have weekends off now i'm seriously considering returning to Aware Racing Team and start league racing with Daniel and the boys. The only thing is i just in the last few days started to apply myself with Open Wheel cars. I was inspired by "Aryton Senna, Going the Speed of Sound" documentary that i watched just a few days ago,and would like to take racing another step up. The thing is i feel i'am not good enough to race Open Wheel in a league yet but there are some that think I'am. I have been invited to race in a IFM league and i'am doubting my abilities to perform as the team member. So i post these runs here to get some feedback.

    I'm in a F1 1992 car here.

    So here they are, A moment of your time for opinions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Hiroshi.
  2. You can stay on track thats the most important thing. :)
    But i see you missing alot of apexes and being to carefull on the throttle and brakes. Also downshift faster, will help alot with the braking and open wheelers have auto blip so it doesnt break out soon when braking as for example a GT car.
    You must have confidence in a open wheeler and its aero. Late on the brakes hit the apex and almost be full on the throttle at the middle of the apex.
    Remember the faster you go, the more grip you will have. Thats difficult in the beginning if you are used to other type of cars.
    But with practice you get the feeling what a open wheeler likes. Also watch other people when you practice together and look what lines they drive and when they hit the throttle in the corner.
  3. Basically what Ivo said... You can stay on track but sometimes it feels like you're not comfortable with the track or car... You got to push more, build confidence and practice your car control :)

    Yep, also i need to start reading Ramon's guide to car setup because i have no clue about setup. Those cars were driven with default settings.
