    Is there a quicker way to test setups?

    At the moment I tune in a private practice session. I set up my initial tune and then I have to drive out of the pits, complete a few laps to get up to temperature, then do a few hot laps and try to catch a glimpse of the telemetry. I feel there must be a better way. I'm wasting so much time trying to get up to temperature and even when I do I can only get a vague impression of the telemetry as I go around the track. There must be a better way.

    Is there a way to skip the out lap and warming up and just do a hot lap?

    Is there a way to review telemetry data after doing a lap? (i.e. not just glance at telemetry data while also trying to drive the lap.)

    Time trials start with heat in the tires if you don't mind getting on the leaderboards with experimental-setup times.

    Since the races start with heat in the tires, I think it would be good for practice runs to at least have the option of starting the same.

    I don't find cold-tire laps particularly useful.

    What I do, is I'll do a custom race, and set Number of AI to zero, the tires start warm and at pressure so your good to go at the start.

    There are some telemetry applications available here: https://www.projectcarsgame.com/apps/

    They don't give you everything, and make MoTeC seem like it was a goddess, but you can get some data.
