I'm currently on my first season of F1 2011 and i'm confused about the whole practice strategy. What fuel level and fuel mixture do the AI use during practice? Also I see them using Options aswell as Primes during P1-P3? I like to keep my gameplay as realistic as possible and I find that using the Hard setting with Braking assist ON and MEDIUM traction control gives me that but during practice im always 2 secs of the pace as i use 10 laps of fuel with Standard mixture on Prime tyres. Is it realistic for F1 teams to use minimal fuel level with Rich mixture and Option tyres during practise? I'm fed up with being 2 secs off the pace in all practice sessions but dont want to lose the realism by going flat out in practice. Any help would be appreciated. Please NO "turn the brake assist off"
