Hi,

Is there any solid reason for a team with HQ3 not being able to make quick stops?

I'm asking that because the mecs point limit makes it impossible for teams below HQ4 to have superb pitstops, and the difference between superb and excellent is significant. However, in F1 sometimes the smaller teams are the quickest (e.g., Williams), meaning that it shouldn't be a function of scale.

Appreciate all the thoughts on this.

Thanks,
Nelson

Hi, with my junior team (HQ1) I have Excellent [9/10] Points to next level 880 (80 more than this team can have) - how many points does your team need for "Superb"?

That's a lot of points and I have no idea why - discipline and synergy is maxed out, mechanics are good enough...

sorry, no idea

I have a discrepancy in pitstop times compared to my rivals. I have the efficiency to superb and comparable quality mechanics but my stops are routinely 1-4 seconds slower to some of my nearest competitors on the same or similar strategies. Can more information be made available about the varying factors to help us understand and improve?
