I surprised myself by completing 20 laps at 70% boost without mangling the car. Not going to win any races, but that is normal for me. Pretty sure I have done less crashing in the 98T than in the Alfa used the other day! :O_o: (and I am really not a F1 guy)

I guess you have to just settle in... And make sure you do not hit 1st or 2nd when you are trying to skip from 5th or 6th to 3rd or 4th... multiple times. :whistling: At least the car does not slide very far.

The Lotus 98T is not impossible to drive. If you adjust throttle application for the turbo kicking in it is typically quite planted on Spa, only trying to kill you in the lower gears. Was not expecting to use the brakes so little either. but.. low inertia + mega grip.

Not bad. I wonder when I am getting off work tomorrow.

So, what is happening here? Do people dislike this car that much?
I am game if this is going ahead.
