5 Tricks F1 Drivers Use To Go FASTER

What Techniques do F1 drivers use to go so fast? How can they be so quick whilst also being consistant? In this video a Pro-Driver and Coach breaks it down!
It may look pretty tranquil most of the time onboard an F1 car, but there’s actually a lot of technique going on. I’m Scott Mansell and I’ve been lucky enough to drive over 25 F1 cars and in today’s three-minute techniques, I’m examining 5 things F1 drivers do to be faster on track.

Trail braking is the gradual release of brake pressure as you enter a corner. It means the driver can control the balance of grip, between the front and rear on corner entry. The goal is to use 100% of all four tyres grip, all the way into a corner.
Two, turning away from fast corners before they turn in. Sounds strange, but drivers will often turn slightly away from a corner before they turn in, so they can load up the relatively soft walled tyre smoothly.

    You highlight the importance of trail braking, but I think there are a bunch of factors that make it incredibly difficult to do that effectively in an F1 car. The aero load and balance on the car change as it slows and changes direction, the tyre load and grip changes as the wheels patter over bumps and in response to suspension reaction. Add to that the fact the braking periods are normally very short, the drivers are being pushed and pulled by high g forces, and the tyres are wearing lap by lap. The ability of the drivers to process all of that, and have the finesse to lap consistently close to the limits of the cars performance, and even race each other, is mind boggling. Can you give us a video on just how high the mental capacities of the top drivers are, where the limits of this might be? And maybe some of the signs of capabilities of the great F1 drivers, compared to the merely excellent drivers who get to F1.

    Can someone explain DRS please? I get the concept, you have to be within 1 second of the car in front etc. But in the F1 game if you are not within 1 second you just can't use DRS, but I guess in real life drivers would still be able to push the button to use DRS even if they are not within one second of the car ahead. Or is there a mechanism in the car that can measure if you are within one second so you can use DRS?

    Point No.2 Turning away from the Corner before entering, you can see perfect in Hockenheim Turn 1. DTM Cars for example make this Move very huge, and i think F1 Cars do this also in that one Corner. This is a Move who is standard in Go Cart driving. In German this Move is called "Anstellen".

      The safety car or VSC time delta is different than your own, regular time delta. When you're racing normally, the "time delta" is your current lap time, compared to your best. When there's a safety car out, the time delta shown in most games is the time delta compared to that of the safety car.

    I have noticed that car shows absolutely never show exiting the turn from inside the car. Never. They show entering the curve, and as soon the car approaches the apex, change the camera to the outside. I wonder, if you enter a sharp turn fast enough to cause a softer suspended car to jerk, would straightening the steering wheel at the apex for a split of a second, before turning it again to complete the turning, improve the car's behavior?

Some they dont even watch the apex when they turn at all , your brain and side vision does the job at this level. No disrespect driver 61 but if you check the dots you will understand my point.

    You know on the track where the drivers have to reconfigure the cars break balance, engine modes etc, during each lap? Why can't we just make those settings sequential? Can we not make a presettable configuration on each turn so the driver would just hit the "next" button then new car settings would be applied on each turn. Then he keeps hitting the next button on each turn, instead of dialling switches and knobs repeatedly it can just be presetted.

    Well, the brake graphic showing either ON or OFF actually solves a big question I've always had with this graphics. What exactly is 100% brake pressure as it pertains to a car's braking system? Throttle positing is pretty straight forward. But what's the "upper" limit on a brake master cylinder and how close are drivers coming to hitting it with their leg?
