How to Master a Lap of Melbourne’s F1 Circuit!


Hi, this is Esteban Gutierrez and this is my guide to the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit So here we are crossing the line for the start of the lap and maximum speed into Turn 1. Very late braking, almost right before turn in, and you want to use a little bit of the apex kerb but you want to use as much as possible on the exit to get as much speed as possible. Then here it is crucial to get the DRS properly done. Braking 100 metres, well positioned on the apex to get a good exit line as you want to use as much as possible of the apex here and also on the exit which makes it a bit tricky on the sausage kerb. Pretty straightforward high-speed corner, with these cars we have so much downforce now. Next one, it’s similar to Turn 1, fourth gear, as much as possible entry speed and using everything on exit. This one you want to brake a little bit after the 100 metre mark and then exit is a bit tricky, which you have a little bit of lateral load combined traction which usually heats up a bit your tyres. As we approach the high-speed corner you want to position the car as close as possible to the wall, have a good line on entry, use as much as possible on the apex of the kerb and you want your car to react really well for change of direction to get a good line on the second part. Very straight forward corner, 90 degree and as we approach the last section
of the track you usually have your tyres a bit
overheated, so here on the hairpin you want to position your car well for exit as you have another high speed corner which is sometimes tricky. That’s a lap of Melbourne.

  1. Esteban, what about your first lap at Baku 2016

  2. Next time, setups for the track

  3. This is like a cheat sheet for the f1 drivers line and how to improve on their line 🤣🤣🤣

  4. 1:30 you got the black and white flag on the wheel for exceeding track limits, thought we wouldnt notice 😛

  5. Are they using rFactor 2 as the sim!? If so what a game! Very helpful, will deffo be watching these videos from now on

  6. Good to see Merc is completing the circle, I am missing Brandon though

  7. Why MPH?

  8. me don't have f1 2019 he have f1 2018

  9. Love the details, great video!

  10. Invalidated lap😂

  11. I absolutely thank you for this. As someone like me, racing is only a long distance dream so Simming is where you get that fix. I hope these continue to drop with every track because they honestly help and will help when the tracks i don't know come up.

  12. *mercedes using imperial system*
    IS MERCEDES' CAREER OVER!?

  13. is there DAS in the simulator🤔

  14. Good format, good level of information and very well done with the slow motion. Congratulations!

  15. sorry but there is a penalty in 1:27

  16. Le hubieras enseñado este video a Fernando Alonso en el 2016, le hubieras echado más ganas en haas y seguro tendrías un lugar en la parrilla

  23. Is that Brendon Leigh who drive with the car

  24. Amazing and Very helpful information!Thanks Mercedes!

  25. His own words from a pre drafted script 😉

  39. The slow mo is great to see the precise apex positions!

  40. Thanks for that especially for the gear selection and the mid corner speed <3

  41. I think he and Alonso had tangled at Melbourne a few years back that ended up in one of the horrifying looking crashes of all times.
    Thankfully, only the cars were broken.

  42. I miss Esteban Gutierrez, also. If there is DAS in F1 2020 the game i swear i wont buy it. (Saving up for PS5 XD)

  43. Waiting for circuit guides that I get to play on my phone; like Suzuka, Spa, Red bull ring, Circuit of Americas, Yas Marina, Monza, Silverstone.

  44. a second slower than Max

  45. What’s the name of the song all the way in the beginning of the video?

  46. Be LH or MV? Max certainly going to on it this year guys. Lewis get 07 aggression back son, ya gonna need my man. Let that God given talent flow my brother ✊

  47. Where is Brendon Leigh
    He is the best for this video

  48. 1:28
    5 seconds penalty for cutting a corner

    echo comes from somewhere

    Angry alonso: 5 seconds is a yoke!

  49. How to incorporate the DAS in 2020 simulation would be cool

  50. Yo the vids made with the other guy were more useful

  51. Williams and Haas be like: Take notes

  52. Max Verstappen got a 1:21 and Guitierrez got 1.22 smh

  53. i like the slow mo for having more time to understand what’s happening in steering and the racing line 👍🏼

  54. Thanks for using an actual F1 game instead of the F1 official channel which always uses assetto Corsa for some reason

  55. Hey do lewis and Valerie know this ?

  56. Thank you mercedes! Now I can improve even more my lap times when playing F1 2013.

  57. Didn't Valtteri Bottas give us his interpretation of a lap at Albert Park??? Are we comparing laps at Mercedes F1?/ Hmmm I'll have to look at the times and see who gave us the faster lap.. Lol

  58. What time did he get c'mon

  59. top quality content!!

  60. Haven't seen him for a while now have we? I Imagine that for 2021, you'll need to use AC though.

  75. So, when do you use DAS? 😛

  76. can the actual drivers use those simulators

  77. Könnte ich nicht besser erklären 😉

  78. It would be cool if you guys can break the record on the game. Or would that give away the settup information of your car?

  79. Here come the irritating fizzy drink company with its pompous Horn and pram . Where’s Arni when you need him.. because somebody’s in need of termination. Smash the sore loosers double bulkhead with DAS . 😁

  80. Melbourne is such a great season opener, really looking forward to this years competition/trials/tears.
