Notes
Xbox 360 Version of the Game; Standard Xbox wireless Gamepad; all assists off; Time Trial tested only on 27:10:14 (will update with career times).

Best time so far: 1m25.7s with all assists off.

The car is fairly stable with good traction until sector three, which I think is worse than ever for traction issues this year. I haven't tested it, but I suspect that TC assist could deliver a faster lap time. The Williams feels "loose", no matter what I have tried, particularly compared to the Ferrari. My sector 1 and 2 times are fairly consistent with this setup; sector 3 is a bit problematic, particularly the final chicane. After chasing a faster Williams ghost (also assists off) and amending my line after turn two I am confident there is a full second for me to gain with this setup and probably a load more for a better driver. Looking at the Williams results in the Xbox TT standings, this seems a fairly respectable time for assists off. Adapting the racing line to the car's behaviour seems to get results.

Trying another line as entry to that corner might help you. Entering wide the apex could save you from understeer and you'll have better exit speed.
I've tried a wider entry but I still exit to wide of the corner and I have to let go of the throttle a bit...and that's when I loose about a half a second...I've won every race so far in the season on Legend...10 races, 9 wins...Only in Barcelona I've been third

Turn 3 was a little tricky for me also, but a little change on race line made it easy. Going close to apex on turn 2 and having a wider entry on turn 3 helped a lot to be on full throttle on apex and exit.
