Curious and have a few questions.

1)does AI always drive the same car? Or are the higher AI settings making use of better setup cars?

2) if not driving better setups, how are they achieving better results?

3)is there a general target time for AI at each percentage? If so how does it change by percentage?

4) are the AI capable of alien like (top) leaderboard times

5)is 100% in any way associated with potential? As in 100% AI extracts 100 percent from the car?

Seems like it's about 3 seconds a lap average per 10 percent increase. Is that accurate and consistent across the 100% range

Oh. And as a suggestion for people not satisfied with AI difficulty/consistency. How about a little more control over AI entry. If we could manually make up our own AI rosters, might fix some issues certain people are complaining about.
80 percenters that think it's too easy could add a few 90 or 100 AI and vice versa.

1) same car but they will try to pick the correct tyres if it is raining or about to rain
2) what "results" are you talking about?
3) not sure about "target time" but they do get faster and cleaner with higher AI strength
4) not really
5) nothing to do with "car potential", the AI use different physics (simplified tyre model, not the human/player tyre model)

Result= improved times. What parameter changes in the game besides the visual AI slider.
Probably proprietary and not discussed openly then if it's encoded in their DNA.
I wanted to know what bits and processes one lacked compared to the next to achieve different results/lap times. For better or worse.
If I want to search for some nuggets. Looks like I'll have to trawl through the 100 plus page AI thread. Or maybe not.

Surprised nobody compares 100% AI times vs leaderboard times.
They seem like they would be lingering in the ballpark

There are about 15 AI behavior parameters behind-the-scenes.

Since leaderboards were just wiped last week we will need to wait for new results
