Probably going to be sitting this one out, but we'll see. The PI's way outside my wheelhouse, but Mugello's probably one of the better tracks in the game to run them on, so I may end up enjoying myself. Will be in a Mazda if I do, because reasons.

Unless there are extenuating circumstances (Alpine A110, Twin Mill), I'm always in Driver (cockpit w/o steering wheel) view. Anything else is just weird with a wheel.

I use the chase near view for rivals.

Though I like using cockpit view for track day (so I can watch the mirrors) and drifting. Not sure why I never use it for rivals, to be honest.

Which is Cockpit and which is Driver?

I deal with the silly wheel to get the wider field of view and mirrors. The one in front of the wheel (Dash?) feels too close and too similar to the hood view for my taste.

Cockpit = You see the steering wheel and your hands on wheel.

Driver = NO steering wheel/hands within your view. You do see internal car elements (dash, indicators, clocks, etc..)

I haven't set a time yet, but just to update how I drive:

I use a wheel and always have (Logitech G920). I almost always use cockpit view, unless the outwards visibility is poor for the particular car. I would then switch to either dash or hood view, depending on which gives better visibility.

Snowman

I normally use chase far, so please assume it will be that unless otherwise stated here, in which case it will be cockpit. Started off with the little loved, so it seems, Aston AMR 1 with a 1:37:644.

Searching through the garage, I found a dusty AMR1 preloaded with a tune from Barnycull - down to a 1:36.023 (threw away 0.5 in the middle sector)

....👍....Nice run! Especially since that was tuned for Dubai a LOOOONG time ago! (There are actually 2 tunes shared for that Toyota #99, and I forgot what "T5" was for...😂), 2 days apart, so, I am assuming it was also for Dubai.

For those M-B C9 fans, I just shared the tune I used for my latest PB (1:31.700). I am still working (will continue) on the tune, yet, shared it to get it out there. Any fdbk would be certainly appreciated as I tweak for future runs! Thanks!

Had to park my wheel and cockpit to make a work from home space for my daughter, so back on controller. Always use chase near with controller.

Thanks FOOT! Yeah, many of us making adjustments nowadays!

BTW, under "normal" circumstances (i.e. w/Wheel), do you use Cockpit/Driver...?? Again, thanks!

I have been using Chase Far View. This is an interesting track. I have been bouncing back and forth between the Mercedes and the Toyota - two completely different animals. The Toyota is down 140 HP on the Mercedes but just handles so much better. What it loses on the front straight it gains back in every turn throughout the rest of the track. So much easier to drive the Toyota consistently. Last run I finally managed to put the Mercedes up by a whopping 0.2 sec after a ton of laps. After watching PRKids lap a few times I definitely need to work more on trail braking and my downshifting. For some silly reason I never thought to drop multiple gears without re-engaging the clutch. Going to give it a try.

It's all about the available Aero ranges (F/R) that the cars have. Same goes for the Nissan R391, drives incredibly well through those turns.

.....👍 Glad it helps! I also learnt so by watching other videos from some top drivers.
