hi everybody, i'm on 2nd season, i won the championship on professional, winning the 19 races, all off, now i'm on red bull, and i'm having a little trouble with this track on wet, it's obvious, having my last season on lotus, that a red bull doesn't set up like a lotus, the engine is different, the axis is different, the suspension is different, and the gearbox behaves totaly different than a lotus car, but, here i am, the weather is on 57% of rain during all the session, in 16th lap, it stops, decide to wear some soft tyres, go on, but even there, my set up for dry isn't enough to earn some seconds from the other cars, i ran with my set up on q1,q2 in 1,21,3xx in q3 rain started then i made my own 1,28,4xx but i'm stuck in the race, i'll give a try to this set up! thanks!!!

I hate this track!! Restarted S1 (again!!) this time with Lotus. Leading championship (Trulli ran me off track in last race..thanks team mate!! and cost me a win) but nowhere on this track. Tried all manner of set-ups but just can't master it. Can anyone give any tips on best way to approach track? Coz I suck in Spain!! (P.S. The rain in Spain falls mainly in my cockpit!!)

Has Anybody else noticed this problem? (I found this problem on this track, but it probably happens on other tracks too, but i will post here) On a wet track, the engineer automatically sets you up with wrong tyre and misleads you into thinking that it is the right tyre? I was on Catalunya on a wet track, and my engineer recommended intermediate tyres. So i went out on inters and struggled around doing 1.27's and 1.28's, there was loads of standing water, yet the engineer kept saying "Stick with the intermediates", the grip was so bad that thought "Screw this" and came in for a wets against all advice. However then with wets on, the car was handling so much better, the transformation was unreal, i had gone from 1.27/28's down into the mid/low 1.25's. Elated by the huge improvement, i started working my way through the field with considerable effectiveness, then, laughably, my engineer came on the radio and said "People on Intermediates are posting faster times, you should come in for intermediates tyres". I was like "wtf!", the track was wetter than ever with loads of standing water, ive changed from inters to wets and hugely improved my laptime and now my engineer is telling me i shouldnt be on wets! What the f**k. Sometimes the things that happen on this game are beggars belief! Has anybody else noticed this problem?

Personally at me such situation wasn't, but there was other not clear thing. On a dry track in practice I lagged behind the leader for 3 sec as I tried. After a while it started to rain (qualification), and then on a very wet track I there were very strongly times for 6.8 sec faster the leader! Really Vettel isn't able to go in the rain?)))
I'm on expert mode, all assists off, full sim.
