  • No active overtakes until after Turn 6, magenta in the map above.
  • If you get a slow down, you must serve it off line without hindering others, as always.
    You are not supposed to keep your position if you get a slow down with cars around you.
    If you get a slow down in T10R, you must serve it after turn 13 and well off the racing line.
  • Aim to keep two wheels on track on the inside of corners.
    Overall, just drive normally with a natural line and there should be no problems.

    In turn 8, 9, 13, use the inside curb, but putting the inside tyres on the grass will trigger a penalty check. It is ok to have the outside tyres slightly off track if your inside tyres are not on the grass.
    The same consideration applies to turn 10 right, except that we have no grass as reference. Having the outside tyres slightly off-track is ok. Repeated heavy cuts might trigger a time penalty.
  • Various passing opportunities on a wide track. Please avoid unnecessary risks like a side by side in the 5-6 chicane.
    It is easy to miss the reference braking markers when fighting, please be careful and avoid dives.
  • Be careful about the concertina effect braking for the slow corners in the early race. Try to be as smooth as possible, with gradual braking and no sudden changes, but expect to have to slow down a lot, especially later in the field.
