Congrats at least it's a green number
I agree with thomass
On the flipside, I am 0.040 from going green at Spa   :harumph:

AFter a loooong spell in the eagle round all the tracks I had hit a bit of a wall with lap times.
I tried some other cars, the cooper was a couple of second a lap slower around most of the tracks, but it was really consistant and easily controllable in the slides.
Tried nurburgring and took 15 seconds off my time! (from 9 min to 8.45) Consistancy and conversatism pays there.

Now started playing with the lotus, shaving seconds at tracks I've tried so far (although still 1/2 a second off the cooper time at zandvort) and have now gone green at monza, silverstone and the Glen. Spa is the next target
