    There has to be an easier way of going from soft slicks to wets.

    I dunno, I just can't do it with that little menu. I can't do it during the race at all, especially on twisty circuits. I can't fit it in fast enough coming up to the pit crew.

    The one time I did manage it without crashing it put me on all terrain tires.

    I don't want to go on hard slicks which is inevitably what it will select if I use the by weather feature.

    Is the only way via that useless little menu?

    Considering you can't talk to the pit crew it'd be nice to have a "if it's raining and I pit then put me on wets" option.

    create pit strategies for the most common scenarios and then select the strategy while driving?

    I agree it is badly designed. But it is all we got. So create some strategies....

    I did look into this earlier today and didn't seem to be able to create one. I'll look again.

    usually when you have ''automatic by weather'' it'll put the good tires on

    Wouldn't it be cool if they implemented voice commands? I'd have to invest in a headset with a mic, but that would be pretty great :-) DLC maybe, to fund it?

    Well it was definitely better with the strategy, although ( World Endurance at Silverstone ) I did have to go hunting around that awful menu to put it back on slicks when it started to dry out, eventually giving in but managing to get to the end of the race in first on wets. I knew which weather was coming in this race so set up the first change as wets.

    You should be able to reorder the menu though so you can place the strategy as the top option or even better ( as I have a USB keypad attached ) having the strategy as a definable key or button.

    The way the quick menu is at present it's near impossible to select anything whist driving. Maybe at Le mans where you have time, Silverstone though just no, there's way too much going on.

    As said before, I think the best strategy is to define the dry/rain strategy before the race and only having to select the correct one. I think you should be able to select the strategy in the last sector or arriving at your pit box (but for the latest, it depends where your pitbox is placed)

    Could have been cool with a sort of short onscreen dialogue ovelay though, once you request a pit stop.
    What do you want to hace done in the pits? Changes tires / Repare damage / Refuel / Pick strategy
    What tires do you want to put on? Soft Slicks / MediumSlicks / Intermediate / Wet / Leave me alone
    Anything else? Yes / no

    This way you'd still need to use up/down/right, but wouldn't have to take your attention off the track. I am especially strugling, when i have damage and the car pulls to one side

    I've done a threat with a new design of ICM in order to have easily the changes as you mention here.
