    Car setup differences in Free Practice and Time Trial

    Hello. I need an explanation. In Free Practice I set tyre pressure of Lotus 49 Cosworth at Nordsсhleife, for example, in front 1.21, in rear 1.14. Next, I go to Time Trial and at first I see in information display pressure that I setup. But when title "Manual control" appears at left, tyre pressure automatically set up to 1.51 in front and 1.42 in rear. Why does it happen? Thanks.

    That's because you're setting cold pressures in car setup.
    Time trial starts with pre heated tires, that's why the pressures shown are higher.
