    Guys! I was doing some laps in Practice and I struggle to go under 10th, I finished 16th. For Qualifying I finished 2nd:banana: And I used the same setup

    track grip levels are way down during practice. I tried doing high fuel runs in practice and that was getting me nowhere. My lap times would be as much as 8 seconds different from high to low fuel. But in the actual race if I start on options and high fuel I'm only about 2-3 seconds off of my qualifying pace until fuel burns off.

    Were you doing a short weekend or long weekend? because in every practice session of a long weekend the track rubbers in a little more and gets a bit grippier, but in short weekend there's only one practice

    I tend to find P1 and P2 fairly useless. They'll get you some basics setup stuff like gear ratios and approximate aero settings and it'll get you back into driving the track, but the lack of mechanical grip means a large chunk of the setup you can do is pointless.

    How much % race distance do you drive? If this is 50%, you get fuel only for 50% of laps, not 100%. So you're faster thatn with 100% fuel. My pace with fuel (100% race) is 6-7 secs slower than Q (same setup).

    I was under the impression that for 50% races you have 100% fuel but it burns twice as quickly...this might explain the huge difference in race pace vs practice for me at least.

    Nope. That's how it should work IMO, and that's how it works with tyre wear, but not with fuel.
