BTW just to follow up on some of your comments during the Zandvoort race. GPL doesn't model tyre wear or flatspots. If you feel you are losing grip it will be tyre temperatures (too hot).
Racing tyres back in the 60s were the opposite of today. Brand new tyres offered the least grip - drivers would normally start a race on scrubbed tyres - and grip would increase as the tyre wore - though not by a huge amount. Not modelling wear is a fair approximation.
By 65 tyres were only used for a race. The story of Jimmy Clark using a set of tyres for three races dates back to 1963 when the tyres were harder.
Always nice to learn something new. I did not realise that story of using tires for more than one race was so much earlier on. I do know that GPL doesn't model flat spots or tire wear though. I just like to add some fictional things to my videos sometimes.
Such as when I care for other drivers saftey, of course I know they'll be okay
