    Oh, ok. I've seen where it lists your stats for each of the tracks, but I never noticed that each of the columns is totaled.

    With fast laps its a bit different though. I like to run Race C wich has fuel and tire strategy. So putting in fastest laps isnt always the fastest strategy over a race distance. Its definetly the statistic i care the least about.

    Also your stats depend very much on the region your racing. EU is definitely the most competitive and racking up poles and wins is gonne be tougher in a environment like that.

    Consistency combined with overall pace is also a major factor on the stats. Someone who is less consistent can actually get better stats cause dropping SR is gonna match them with lower skilled players more often. I've seen kudos pages of people with like 200 races with a 50% win rate or something but their SR is all over the place and despite the 50% win rate their DR stays very low. One can be super consistent and nearly never drop below SR 99 but if their pace is slower they wont get as much wins or poles, though these guys will be racking up the DR unlike the inconsistent guys causing them to get matched with the aliens all the time.

    Good point. I've seen lots of races where the fastest lap went to someone who finished in the bottom half, because they were not consistent.

    I think there’s some logic to that notion though, a lot of times the driver out front has already done all the hard work in quali and the early laps, and the second half of the races doesn’t require pushing hard at all, just managing the gaps. Conversely, someone lower down the order in the closing stages might be more inclined to feel like they have nothing to lose, and therefor go for broke on the final few laps. Obviously this doesn’t happen all the time, but I don’t think it’s an uncommon occurrence.

    Alternatively, if there’s a very close race at the front between the top 3 or 4, chances are they won’t be setting fastest laps if those drivers are trading places...you only get the top drivers really pushing for lap time if they’re either alone and feel like it, or if they’re in a group but decide not to battle each other (and in a 5 lap sprint race, where’s the fun in that lol).

    Yeah true but in term of fastest laps i mean it more down the line of pitting vs no stop or fuel saving to minimize time in pit vs going all out fuel map 1. But of course going all out pushing qualy laps vs driving nice consistent race pace also counts.

    And what @twitcher said is also very true.

    There are also at least 5 times more people playing in Europe. You should have a much bigger chance to get in a slower room with all the faster people grouped together. In NA you always have the fast people on pole, then down to B/S in prime time, down to D/E in off hours.

    Dropping SR still works in NA, yet at SR.S you are almost guaranteed to race with the aliens.

    That's a fair point you made.

    For low to mid level drivers fewer players makes it harder to obtain poles/wins.

    For mid to high level drivers more players makes it harder to obtain poles/wins.

    I might be dense but I can't find these figures at all, I can only see achievements which are capped (ie 20 poles award)

    I completely agree, race pace is worth just as much as a good Q time, maybe even more. I’ll usually spend at least and hour or so doing hot laps on a track before jumping in, sometimes more. I don’t want to have to think too much about driving while I’m trying to race if that makes any sense at all. :)

    With the recent changes to the matchmaking in Sport Mode, you could probably get more wins...

    I totally agree, and I usually do the same routine before my first race. It definitely helps to be comfortable at speed when you're in the heat of battle.
    But yeah, I've learned the hard way that consistency is essential to staying above 50k, especially when one bad result can easily erase a day or a week's worth of work (or ENTIRE MONTHS if you get reset :banghead:)

    I won 2 races right off the bat but I'm pretty sure that was just the system learning my skill level. I've only won 2 more in the last 300 races and honestly it's a bit annoying because my skill is pretty good and it's the competition that messes up my races. I just try to remember the point is to have fun, which I am, most of the time.

    153 races, 20 wins, 33 poles and 5 fastest laps. Mostly in race C

    I doubt I’ll get the trophies but I’d like to reach A+ one of these days. I also deleted my game save a while back to try and rekindle my interest in the game so my stats look a little screwed up.

    If you watch the replay his ABS light is red, means he is using the brake glitch. It definitely makes a difference, if I rest my foot on the brake I will start accelerating away from my ghost.

    Sport Mode Races618 | Finished: 601 (601*)
    Sport Mode Performances15,100 (in the Top 7%) Details
    Sport Mode Sportmanship (SR)77/99 Details

    Sport Mode Leading Laps3.7% | Daily: 3.7% | FIA: 3.9%

    My SR slipped from SR99 on Sunday, had a guy that wouldnt race me clean, he kept knocking me high at the apex or using me as wall in turns then I would lose straightaway speed, I got tired of getting SR downs from him and costing me time so against my better judgement I gave him a punt :mad::mad::mad:
