Everyone always says "brand so and so should come out with a new car before the worlds." One problem with that. Very little time to learn and develop the car. Sometimes it works but usually it's a well proven car that wins it all.

You have to remember at TITC Hara was virtually racing on his home track sop he would have the cra set up well for it. Different case in Germany

Looking at all the videos...Marc wants to defend, but I think the hungriness of Jilles is undeniable. He wanted TQ so bad.

I expect Jilles to handle his bizness

I watched a couple rounds of the last 3 groups on the streaming page. I noticed that most drivers set their fast lap in the first 5 laps, and laptimes seemed to fall off throughout the run. I'm fairly certain this happened even when they ran a fresh set of tires.I may be speculating a little, but I believe on the 2nd run tires the same thing happened but the laptimes didn't fall off quite as much. They just didn't have those first 5 or 6 fast laps.

My diagnosis? LRP tires suck. Further diagnosis? Not only do the tires suck, but they don't have the correct insert for that track. Possibly not a large enough air hole either.

Rick has been checking this thread. Maybe he can confirm or deny my theory. But I'm pretty sure I'm correct. Too bad they aren't running the Sweep EXP tires. They might not produce the absolute fastest lap of any tire out there, but they are fast and they don't fall off very quick. 3 sets would be fine with the EXPs.
