@Luca: Please delete my fastest lap 1:52.515 min., I got off the track at the exit of the Ascari chicane -which is not valid I think-, because of taking a little too high speed into the left cornering just before the straight
. Maybe I'll be faster than that in future, but I doubt it, so delete it
With the update it is definately more difficult now in extreme situations: when you hit the gras with a rear wheel while braking or being in fast corners your rear goes off and once your rear 'overtakes' you, the car is not as easy to catch anymore, you need double the space than before to get in control again.
When your rear goes off and you lose control completely the car is even not stoppable anymore on the brakes, brakes take not as much of an effect as before when the car slides, so mostly you just slide and slide and slide despite braking until you see and hear boom at the next wall
So that can lead to hard situations in a race, because when a guy in front loses control, his car will probably slide all over the track and the following cars can't aviod hitting that car, we need to be even more careful, when the driver in front makes a mistake than try to react immediately to get far away from the situation in front.
I also tried the F1800 at Donington same difficuties there at first -losing rear much more easy at the exit of chicane on the gas, that was almost not possilbe before the update for example and as with the Gvb in fast corners you need usually more space now (going wide in most cases), I had to set the ARB more conservative on that car (F1800) then it felt fine as long as no mistakes on the rear occur in certain situations (big slides).
But I like the handling more than before, I think it is indeed some kind of more realistic, the cars feel not so stiff anymore, you can steer the cars much more and better with the rear now: -when you silde the car in a corner, it does not 'choke itself' (slows down) anymore in that particlar moment when the slide is done / the tires grap the grip to the asphalt again.
