How to save fuel in wet races?

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by samjealsha, Oct 24, 2011.

  1. I always have this problem when racing in the wet, I run on standard mix 2 but every time at the end of the final lap of the race I always run out of fuel. AI is very fast so I can't afford to switch down to fuel mix 1. I know I'm aggressive on the throttle when exiting corners cause it is hard to feather the throttle when using a trigger of a gamepad even if it is analog. What should I do? Is there something wrong with my gear ratios? If it is so should i use higher or lower gear ratios in the wet?
  2. When you are having a decent lead over someone switch to mix 1 and when someones closing switch to mix 2 and when someone on your tail switch to mix 3
  3. Unless you're very good with throttle control mix 3 is not really preferred in wet conditions as it will give you more wheelspin, if you use mix 1 you might actually have an easier time going out of corners.

    Higher gear ratios will also make it a little bit easier (atleast on the lower gears) to get good traction out of corners. Also, short-shift as much as you can (if you use manual gears) to counter wheelspin.

    Personally I tend to short-shift a lot in the wet to minimize the risk of spinning out or just getting bad traction out of corners. Takes a bit of practice but once you learn it you will be a much better driver ;)
  4. Thanks you guys... Practice!!! Practice!!! Practice!!!
