Thanks for posting. Always helpful to see a racer's perspective and lines. My amateur abilities and chubby car are apparently costing me 20sec a lap around the Glen!

I noticed he was running a racing line around most of the corners, early apexing or hugging the inside, driving a protective line. But this was a qualifying lap--wouldn't a more traditional, non-protective line be faster for qualifying? Or is it that most of the rubber had been laid down on the racing line, making it stickier and ultimately faster even for qualifying?
