    Inspired by the real GP of last week, I've done this:
    Driving the Ferrari 2006 on Melbourne, starting as last, because I like the challenge and also it is fun to work your way through the entire field. That was a very close and fun race. I used same strategy and the others, a 3 stopper. Difficulty level is "hard", stability control is "off" and traction control is on "2". Damage is on.

    I even added some written commentary and pointed out the highlights of each part in the comments section, so head over to youtube!

    Nice aside from corner cutting.

    As indicated during the video, Massa turned me around and I've even waited for him, so the cutting there wasn't unfair. But thx. :)

    Not including after the Massa incident, you were on the grass at least once per lap. I thought the idea was to stay on the grey bit.

    Lol yup. It has multiple reasons though:

    1.Miscalculation of speed, angle, etc.=mistake.

    2.Safety=opening the wheel to avoid hitting a critical curb for example, where you would fly off definatly.

    Have you ever tried this game? It's not easy to hit every apex when you're really trying to push every lap. Besides, factors like changing grip level of tyres, weight of the car (dramaticly) and track temperature influence the car's handling greatly, almost on a lap basis so to say. The game has it's weaknesses in the physics departement but I LOVE how it can simulate the above mentioned factors. Also the Ferrari is a really twitchy bitch when it's light on fuel, I posted all highlights (also driving mistakes) in the commentary section, so you only need to click on the noted times and you'll see the right sequences immediatly. I had two big off moments and some where I almost lost the car, most of those incidents occured when the car was light.

    Pit to Massa "Michael is faster than you, can you confirm this message?"
