    Has anyone tried it ? It looks like you could gain about 1 second per lap.

    Doubt it.
    You'll be carrying a lot more corner entry speed, but your exit speed will be heavily compromised.

    Also you'll trash your tires incredibly quickly.

    That theoretically you can use Mugello kerbs as launching pads/boosts. But I don't know how practical that is, and if your lap times are faster because you're boosting off the kerbs, or actually driving better lines. There's also the too much lateral skid of the tyres which increases graining/blistering. But all this is yet to be tested and see if is actually an advantageous exploit.

    Yeah. This 'exploit' happens to me occasionally when I'm too late on the brakes and have to swwwwiiing the car round- surprisingly fast although you do lose big time on the straight.
    Silky smooth flow > ragging it round, with or without supposed hax!

    This was somewhat of an exploit in previous versions of AC. It makes me cringe....

    It's not good for long runs. Maybe you can drive like that for a few corners or laps to increase-decrease the gap to other cars. Otherwise precision drive is better than such agressive/risky drive if you ask me.
