The principles remain the same. Brake into the corner, accelerate out of it. Hit the apex. Successfully executing these repeatable activities ensures the fastest navigation of the corner.
If it’s a corner we’ve never been around before, even though we know the principles, chances are we won’t execute it perfectly. We need to figure out the right speeds and find the apex. We don’t always know what the exit looks like.
In these cases, it pays to take caution. Brake a little more than usual. Limit the risks until you can see the exit. Then, punch it.
Full steam ahead is great on a track you know well. On a new one, it’s folly.
It pays to be cautious in times of uncertainty.
