Yes that exactly what i have experienced so far. My god, the test race at Silverstone and the race at Nola was a pain with the rear tires with our Porsche, but i'm pretty sure is a Porsche behaviour, being the only mid engine/front fuel tank car here it tends to snap oversteer very easily with low fuel and worn/over pressurized tires.What I have noticed is that this version of the tire model is inheriting an old RF2 problem that remains too constrained to tire pressure.
The more you can maintain a lower pressure, the better the grip, it may have a justification but up to certain limits .
For example, if I leave for the first lap I will have an elevated grip even if I have the tires are cold (and it should not really happen) because of the low pressures (or at least this is my explanation).
Driving more laps the pressure will be higher until it stabilizes and it is easy to perceive the differences lap by lap.
For the first 2 - 3 - 4 laps (depending on the type of track) the car has more grip and I understand that it is a desired phenomenon (in real life of motorsport this happens for some categories) but what happens here after a few laps is something different because it changes the way you drive the car that becomes much more slippery.
So what I want to say is that I understand that for the first laps I can have a greater grip (allowing me one or two laps from qualifying) but I find it strange that then the car is different to drive.
We made some experiments with the setup for Interlagos and we were able to lap every lap in the same bunch of thents(mid 1:30), no strange behaviour and no snap oversteer this time, but idk yet if it was the track and the asphalt or these setup changes, we will see in Malaysia!
