9) Additional information 

About HQ: DON'T spend resources in developing the Hospitality cause it's quite useless.
About Wet races: To master it, you should do the minimal number of pit-stops and it depends on the race distance. Usually, the DRS is NOT available.

PD) The DRS is enabled on the 3rd lap (dry conditions) OR when the water standing on-track drops from 1.0mm (after rain stops). The DRS will be disabled when it rains and the water standing on-track reaches 1.1mm.


Havent tested this but hospitality building would have an effect on the age drivers and staff decide to retire. Higher hospitality means they would retire at a higher age.

It only affects the staff. Also on lower levels it means nothing. By lvl19 I recommend start upgrading it.

Also in the inters should be used around  
05mm -2.9mm.
Wets from 3.0mm to the maximum amount of rain 

The wet weather tyres are:

Crossover 1 (Slick to I): From 0 to 0.3mm
INTERMEDIATE: From 0.3 to 3mm
Crossover 2 (I > W): From 3 to 3.2mm
FULL WET: From 3.2 to 5mm

My question is, of the top 4, is there an order of importance? I straight away put everything into acceleration. People to tend to leave downforce to last. And people tend to do braking 2nd! But by putting everything into acceleration am I just helping others, as if they’ve spread their points between the others and a bigger gap for acceleration because I always do that they’ll be getting bigger research gain and may be a quicker way of finishing the top 4 off! I did a while back do handling the first few races, but found in trains I would get overtaken on the straights, and because of ‘dirty air’ wouldn’t really gain through the lap. It can be useful if your first because you can get away through the lap and they can miss out on drs. Thinking about trying it next season, what are your thoughts and how do you upgrade your car? Obviously it’s a lot more important now with the cap going up to 200, whereas before it would be finished after about 7 races 😂

Acc-> bra-> Han-> Dow-> FE

But never put all in one, as others will just research it and leave you behind in others

1) Tips to choose your drivers

1.1- Conditions to accomplish, in order to have a competitive driver
The driver SHOULD BE Talent 20*
Driver's weight: 51 kgs if it's a male driver / 46 kgs if it's a female driver

1.2- Training (Optimal way): 
I) You MUST train the Physics aspects until "Stamina" is up to 20 and "Weight" goes down to 46 kgs (F) or 51 kgs (M)
II) Once the Physics are maxed out, the next aspect to improve is the Driving abilities part up to 20 (which's max out).
III) To end, the next aspects to train are Mental abilities.

A note about Headquarters:
Your young drivers come from the Young Drivers Academy (or YDA).
To have more chances to obtain talent 20 drivers your YDA SHOULD be minimum, level 13 (for higher chances).
Also, an advantage of the young drivers is their salary (per race), which is significantly lower than a veteran driver. 

A 2019 tip by Connor Cooper, a fellow moderator of iGP Manager:



are you sure about driver weight? I've seen this theory debunked and driver weight doesn't matter, are you sure it makes any difference?

Very good guide.
I have a Question: How to right use KERKS?
I heard I just have to full use it in the last lap, I heard you just should use it to try to get the DRS from another player.
It´s better to use Kerks in straight lines or only in curves?
What should I do?
Thanks in Advance.

Depends. For your level (8) 'Train and sprint' is minimal, and KERS and DRS are not too important. At higher levels, using KERS to stay with the train as required, before using the remainder in a frantic final lap sprint is the mainstream tactic, but if you are good enough and on a 2 car league you can sacrifice 1 car's to give the other a free ride, with DRS the whole way, and full boost for the end. However, as I mentioned, at Lvl 8 (with your KERS and DRS even lower, likely), use KERS whenever you feel appropriate as tyre strategy and fuel loads are far more important.

Thanks for all of the details and tips. Quite useful.

I may have missed this, but having a lvl20 everything driver, with low experience, is how much slower than one with high experience? I know the higher.... the less mistakes made etc.
Then if the new driver took part in Quick Races, does their experience grow or not?

Clutching at straws, as a lvl20 manager, in the last two seasons, I have barely scored a single point in my current league, so trying to find out why such a drop off in pace.

Cheers
Thanks.

Currently drivers gain level every 20 quick races or 10 normal races I think.

Hey everyone! I have a question! :) 

In my league there are several teams exactly the same level as me (20). 

I've checked their teams and their drivers are rated the same as mine, their CD and TDs are basically the same as mine... 

I have the highest level of facilities and I copy their tactics. Yet I am absolutely nowhere near competing with them. 

Is there some other external factor that I'm missing here? Does my league position from this year impact how well I will do next year? What is making the huge gap between me and the top 5 teams in the league :( 

I'm open to any suggestions! Also, it seems impossible to find a CD or TD with talent 20!?

It must come down to how you race, or how you develop your car through the year

Might be push levels. Pushing hard in corners, low on straights. Catching DRS. KERS. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Maybe you guys are right. 

Normally with the push levels I just set it to whatever keeps the tyres half way between hot and cold - are you saying its best to change this multiple times per lap? Would that increase the lap times?

Hi
Abu Dhabi awaits me, temperature 38 ° C, it looks like a clear choice Hard, but hard in tests look 1-1.3 s worse than Soft.
What would you choose, is Hard the right choice?



Simply no is the answer

Personally i adjust push levels through the lap if i can. Pl1 or 2 on straights and 4 or 5 through slow sections, hairpins etc. I'm only level 15 so nowhere near your level or experience but that technique does seem to work more often than not, I'm reasonably competitive against level 20 managers 👍

That's exactly how you should do it (push levels changing from track to track obviously), many experienced people said this is the right way, I personally use only 1 and 5 as much as I can, but on some tracks that's impossible, but made me very competitive with significantly worse cars.
