    Tire pressure calculations

    Are there any guides that help with getting tire pressure right depending on temperatures? Really wish there was a crew chief option for the sim to adjust pressure to keep the tires in range as temp climbs or drops during a race weekend.

    In theory a 10 degree C change in temperature will give you a 4% change in pressure. So if your tyres were 1.75 bar, a 10 degree C change in temperature would give a 0.07 bar change in pressure.
