Tyre wear too high?

Hello,

I am now driving with the telemetry and it show me that I use the tyres too much during a WTCC race with the seat.

For example, during the Magny-Cours race (12 laps - 95% difficulties), I am able to win the race with a time of 1:50:000 per lap but I finish with 60% for the front tyres.
During the qualification, I can drive under 1:48:000 but I was not focused on my tyres because it is just for 2 or 3 laps.

Do you have the same wear tyre during a race ? And what can I do to decrease it ?

Thank you.

You can't :) I think 60 procent is a good number on the tyres. Have you seen WTCC tyres after a race on television? :D All full of blisters and parts that are totally worn out.

I ran a race in STCC once and it was 36 lap total. I only changed fronts and not rears. This was the end result.
Silly question from moi. How do you bring that screen up to show the tyres etc etc during race? I see it automatically pop up when I pit.

You push the pit menu button. You can change the preset for pit during race. Really usefull if something happens and you want to prepare for the pit stop

Thank you Morgan. I'll have to change that button and map to the G25. Running out of buttons lol. Or even might utilise the n52te pad for these settings. Cheers m8
