Hello racers! Probably as every simracer out there who wants to be faster and faster, I'm always trying to keep in mind the basic principles of racing. And there's one of them that confuses me often - the best racing line. I've been studying this for a long time, trying to implement all the techniques into my driving... ...and then I come across divergiences. As far as I know, the recommended line for taking hairpins looks like this: Often called as a "late apex" turn. And this is especially true if there's a long straight ahead after the hairpin, as the driver can start accelerating earlier. Not that much true, if there isnt. But as I look at some of the fastest guys out there, their line seems to be far from the example above even though theres a long straight in Suzuka after the hairpin. Take a look at Georg Ortner or this guy. They say, that the basic principles of racing always stay the same, but in this case these principles just don't seem to work. What do you think?
