When you know that there are 3 points on the track that you make mistakes, do you repeat those points again and again explicitly or do you just run the whole track and just try to drive better/slower at those points?

I will normally run the section a couple times in a row to get a feel for it, then do a full lap trying to add what i learned. Then i would run a couple more laps trying to get it consistent. After a tank or 2 of doing that, i try to pick up the pace. But being consistent is far more important then shaving a 10th here and there. You have to look at all wrecks that require a marshal as 10 second mistakes. Even if you slow down, a section wont cost you that much time.

I just want to carry out a constructive practice for once and I never do because everytime I go to the track I start racing around with a couple of friends and I forget to actually practice! I thought of doing two laps and then stop and think about where I went wrong and try to understand how to drive at those points.

Also because I never see the good drivers around for practice I don't know if I am doing something wrong at certain points of the track or if my setup isn't tunned enough to take the track at those points...

Where should braking points be entering a corner? How can I pick up corner speed?

Should the Brake be applied way before the corner and roll through or start applying gas through the corner?
