Why add air pressure and not TIRES? Who the f cares?

I give you permission to ignore the air pressure number.

Let's not be so hasty because the air temp and pressure tells me that the Density Altitude(DA) was between 900-1100 feet depending on humidity. This will affect lap times compared to cooler denser air :)

I actually agree with his point because tyre info is much more influential than air pressure or most other factors. But it certainly doesn't hurt to have air pressure.

I totally agree, tyre type and whether it's new or half worn(important grip factor) can make a substantial difference to lap times. Of course the other big factor is driver ability.

I thought 1033mbar is more than standard pressure at sea level. That means this is actually quite dense isn’t it?

I'm not a weather expert but assuming barometric pressure on a particular day remains fairly constant the temperature increase throughout the day is the main contributing factor which determines air density. So let's say the barometric pressure is 1033 mbar and the air temp is 10 deg C at 9am with 50% humidity with location at sea level elevation the DA will be approx minus 1000ft below sea level whereas if the temp was 25 deg C at 3pm with 50% humidity the DA will be approx 800 ft above sea level. So hotter air is less dense than cold air even though barometric pressure is higher.

It doesn't hurt but some manufacturers, Porsche the most use Cup 2 R/Trofeo R for lap times like this. So what tires did it have?

User avatar

FastestLaps  7m ago @Shinuiz

There wasn't a data panel for that feature, maybe tyres were mentioned in the article but I couldn't find at first glance. You would have to assume OEM tyres.
