I'm not a good driver, pretty sure there is more to gain in the lap, the car responses well in slow corners.

Did you use a racing wheel, gamepad or keyboard? I watched the video; very smooth driving. You take some turns in 2nd, for example into the car park chicane, that I don't seem to be able to manage without shifting quickly to 1st, but I'm using an xbox gamepad and can't manage braking into the apex - conflict between braking with forefinger and steering with thumb of the left hand.

Woah that ride height setting breaks every rule I know about aerodynamics. Negative rake should be giving you lift, not down force, which would be awful in almost any track situation.
