    I see the ambient temp has shot up in the Abu server, does this mean there will be a weather forecast out soon?

    Ehh... sorry mates, slow on info here. We'll have the same weather as Pacific did in their race. That means 42 degrees (I think) and declining throughout the session. The one on the servers is the correct one :)

    I use the autosim weather generator. It is quite good to just ajust temperatures.

    Btw. How long is the race? The 50 laps it says in gpcos doesn't look too convicing. Will it be 38 like fpps?

    Should you choose to make two pit stops? It takes about 35 to 40 seconds to change tires without refueling.

    Use harder tyres and be smooth in your driving style, I managed to do 18 lap (in the hot weather ) with the soft tyre with resonable lap times (thought I am slower than you). If I was racing I would go with the medium, but hard it's better if you are worried of overheating.
