This breakdown of the turn segment shows the three phases we are concerned about. The correct lift point is well before the incorrect one. This is where the fast lap starts. When going in too deep to the red line, excess braking must occur and the "table" section suffers. We could see a loss here of 3-4 mph, which carries on through the middle of the turn and down the next straightaway. The delayed entry also delays the acceleration point, shortening the acceleration zone.
