    Formula A - Quicker with Wet Tyres

    I don't see how this can be just me, but;

    Red Bull Ring, 28th March 2018, 13:00. Light Cloud. Free Practice.

    The wet tyres are a clear 2 seconds quicker than hard slicks, in the dry? Surely this can't be right?

    Also, shouldn't there be massive overheating/degradation? This also is not happening.

    Track Temperature at only 59 degrees. Isn't that way below the minimum temp for hards?

    A sub 60 track temp is too cold for hards to be effective. Softs should be the best bet but wets will work as well without overheating too badly (will probably wear quicker than the softs though).

    I'd say the results are more or less to be expected.
    Project Cars 2 is coming here! Okay enough with the silly signatures... I gotta find something better to put here.

    I think it helps to deliberately think of the tyres as being nothing to do with F1, which has it's own weird and wonderful set of compounds.

    Open wheel slicks simply don't work well in this game. FA continues to be undriveable on loose setups unless you use the competition tyres, and even then they are not trustworthy.

    The only open wheeler that handles decent in pc2 is the FX. There's something wrong with FA nad FR

    So?

    Are we saying that the Wet Tyres work better in the dry than tyres actually designed to be used in the dry? Is that right? Does anyone know of any real world situation when this would be applicable, across any motorsport class? Never mind any open wheel class. I know I've never heard of that, but maybe my knowledge is limited.

    Seems a bit silly to me.

    Of course the FA cars are difficult to drive. At the moment I have problem with the AI balance. I set the difficulty to 100 or 90% and the AI drive the same time by a 120 % difficulty. Further while the race I drive constantly the same round time. But By consuming fuel the car should get faster.
