Race start :
On this circuit the place on the start line has no particular advantage in the first turn.
The first straight is slightly too long to be crossed in a single 5th gear roll (only 20% chance). So it is necessary to overshoot the first turn (2 stops, 13-7) most likely in 5th gear on the first stop in that turn. Doing that makes also possible to attempt the crossing the straight in a single 6th gear roll but it might overshoot and cost some tires again.
Similar situation as focus 1, overshooting the 4th corner is necessary to cross that 18 space straight in a single 5th gear. Exiting the 3rd corner (1 stop, 7-3) in 5th gear will achieve that.
Same situation again with almost the same odds ; the 5th turn (2 stops, 13-8) need to be overshoot to make it to the next corner. As in focus one, one option is also to pass 5th gear on the first stop in that 2 stops turn to cross in 6th Gear.
Here again same situation and same odds but this time in 6th gear where some overshooting is necessary to cross the 28 spaces pit straight in a single roll. This will also cost a gas to downshift to the 2 stops corner. So attacking here is less appealing particularly as many tires are used in a turn for all the overshooting and pit stop for new tires is probably the best option.
Car config :
Rather straight forward : hard tires and a lot of them for the overshooting. Unless you feel particularly lucky and attempt the 3 30% chances crossing attempt in soft tires.
