Hi guys, Sorry if this has been posted before, but I couldn't see a thread on this and when I tried to search the forums I got a message saying the search function has been disabled. How are you guys finding the tyre sim so far? I think it's vastly improved over last year but I'm having a couple of issues and while I suspect that it's probably my driving that needs work, I'm interested to see how my experiences compare to others. I'm doing a 100% distance Grand Prix season before jumping into the career mode - after last years shambles I figured the best way to judge the AI and other bits and bobs was to race in GP with the fully-developed cars. While I'm finding pretty much everything to be an improvement over last year, I'm finding that the tyres are becoming my Achilles heel. 3 races completed, of which two have been dry. Interestingly, Malaysia was wet throughout (started on full wets, changed to inters at around 1/2 - 2/3 distance and won the race) and I didn't have any of the problems that others seem to have mentioned (or at least suspected) with AI not pitting etc. The dry races have somewhat scunnered me though when it comes to the tyres. Starting on Options, the default strategy so far is always Option/Prime/Prime. When I try to set a O/O/P or O/P/O strategy though, it always ends up with me being warned that at least one set of tyres will be worn by the end of the stint (it varies depending on what number of laps I set for each stint) but it seems impossible to set up a 2 stop strategy with 2 stints in Options. Thing is, I was keeping tabs on the AI at China, and while I ran the default O/P/P strategy both Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber ran 2-stop O/P/O strategies. End result was Lewis blowing me away in the final stint (we had been fairly close all race), and Webber catching me by the end. Have any of you guys ignored the warnings and set up a 2-option-stint strategy? I tried a 3 stopper in Australia but the AI seem to be stuck on 2 stops and I reckon I would only have come in about 4th despite having a good pace (if I hadn't crashed it on lap 48!) I suspect ignoring the warnings is the way forward, along with finding setups that aren't punishing on the tyres. My driving style is quite aggressive as well, so I suspect I may have to adapt to be gentler on the tyres too. I would be interested to find out what other people are experiencing with the strategies etc.
