Basically you’re making the common rookie mistake of driving straight from apex to apex, you need to use all of the track which means slowing down in certain spots so you can go much faster in others.

Ex: The last 3 turns coming onto the front straight are all wrong. You want to slow down in the first turn and hug the left side of the track to get an early apex for the next turn which you should try to drive straight across (your driving straight across it now but at the wrong angle). Then you’ll be in a position for a big sweeping turn onto the front straight. Also, swing it all the way to the right coming onto the straight.
