Tiametmarduk’s Guide To Spain!

May 10, 2019

He’s one of the foremost content creators in the F1 YouTube community – and now, Ben Daly, better known by his online pseudonym Tiametmarduk, is here to lay some truth bombs on us for the final F1 Esports Qualifying event in 2019…


“Start the lap by deploying all of the DRS and all of the fuel mixture to maximise top-end speed, before the heavy braking zone into Turn 1”

“Coming out of Turn 5, short-shift to third gear to minimise wheel-spin. Make sure not to cut or track-extend in the middle sector, other wise that’ll be the lap out the window.”

“Throw it into Turn 9 in sixth gear, before braking for the hairpin of Turn 10”

“The last sector can be a bit understeer-y, so make sure you keep the nose tucked in as you approach the slower speed parts of the lap”

“Then finally, save some ERS for the final straight, where you can either perfect an overtake, or cross the line!”


With a final score of 204,134, he’s on the fringes of qualifying for the 2019 F1 Esports Series… can you do better and make the grade?
