    Are the leaderboards combined platforms or platform specific?

    Maybe someone get some tips from it. I think 1.17 should be doable quite easily, atleast with better setup.

    After I did my first laps, barely managed a high 1:26 and then checked the leaderboards I honestly thought that the top times must have something to do with cutting parts of the track or something like that. This car still scares me.

    thats the irony of contemporary F1 cars, they are terrifyingly fast but they have insane amoutns of grip, so much that youll see people taking lines in videos you didnt think was physically possible. it basically IS like track-cutting. i dont understand how some ppl just intuitively know a cars limit so well but thats why theyre called aliens i guess.

    Wow, and I see you're two tenths faster than that now. My theoretical best is like 1:24 or something. I can see from your video that you are braking quite a bit later than me, and also have a much tidier lines through many of the corners. But I don't even know how I could improve that much. I'm using a controller and sometimes there can be frustrations due to that, but I don't think I could get much faster than 1:22 if I did everything as well as possible.

    Well done.

    same here. Best time I can drive is about 1:20:xxx and watching the video he definietly brakes later in every corner.

    @Joni, would you share some setup tips? I think this is not the default setup? I'm not able to brake that late without having too much understeer.

    You know what is really fun about this...

    I do it exactly as you, I watched this video 5 times now, and you use the same braking points as I do, you start to accelerate at the same points where I do. But you can go faster then I do... I do not understand how
