With the current situation forcing all motorsport to temporarily pause, is there a virtual way for the drivers to remain sharp? When the season gets underway, how do the teams use simulators to improve those driver skills to gain an advantage over their competitors? That is the topic today with Alex Kalinauckas (F1 Editor, Autosport) talking to our friends from AVL RACING. On the podcast we ask:
•How do you make a simulator reflect a real-life car?
•How close can we get to reality?
•How do you get a new track into a Sim?
•For the teams, is there a role for Sims in how to plan for various race strategies, things like weather and energy management?
