When you’re pushing the limit it’s not always possible to complete a whole lap making every bend and straight at 100%. Once for example you’re perfect in turn number 3 but a missed braking point ruin the whole lap. Next time sector one and two are brilliant but traffic prevents you from keeping the pace. And you are always wondering what will be the result if you manage to complete a lap that has all your best in it!
The theoretical best lap is the feature that automatically calculates the sum of the best sector times in your session and gives you a clue of what is possible if you manage to get them inside one single lap. What’s more is that you can find exactly what you have done in you fastest sector in order to get the clock showing as short interval as possible.
A closer look into the lap times list in the session overview is showing you a detailed list of all the sector times as well and all you have to do is to find in which lap was your fastest sector one, two, three etc.
When you have that information all you have to do is to get back to the comparison mode and find what have been done in order to achieve those sector times and push harder to repeat those actions as consistently as possible. As we can see on the image shown, our driver managed to drive the fastest sectors 1 and 3 in his best lap, but has a 3 tenths faster sector 2 in his 5th lap and thus he needs to find what mistake have been made there.
If you want to go even further you can manually divide the track (creating a manual track configuration) making every single corner a separate sector and thus you’ll be able to get the ultimate best lap and examine the fastest way through every corner.
