Turn 26 notes:

Completing Correntaio yields some position changes

Rund finishes the red line and 80s at 100 wear paid
Schultz follows in the leaders tracks around the corner for one wear
Moratto slows to 80 around the outside of Bucine
Bernhardt drops two wear on the racing line at 120

LaMorte starts the racing line into Bucine at 120
Harley moves to the inside approaching the corner at 140
Harrington exits Correntaio at 120
Bauska taps the brakes to 60 finishing the corner through the 60s

Welage sheds one more wear at 100 through the 60s (see note)
Collins hugs the inside of the corner at 60 shedding one wear
Kennard slows to 60 taking the red line and 60s for free

Note: Welage spent one wear into the corner last turn. This turn he accelerates to 100
onto the blue racing line. The rule is you can't spend more wear in the next space, which
he does not. Then, with Bauska blocking the line he shifts to the 60s to finish the corner.
This costs two wear, the one he already spent and one additional.

Turn 27 notes:

The final lap begins with some low wear numbers

Rund begins the final lap at 140
Schultz exits Bucine at 140
Bernhardt maintains 120 through the 80s wear paid
Moratto picks up the blue line at 120 and tucks in behind Bernhardt

Harley drops one wear at 100 using the 80s all the way
LaMorte at 100 sheds one wear on the red line and shifts to the 100s
Harrington tosses in one wear to take the 80s at 100 and picks up the blue line
Welage at 120 chooses the inside approach

Bauska does 120 and uses a slip to start the racing line
Collins does a conservative 100 on approach to the corner
Kennard comes off Correntaio at 120 getting a slip to start the line

Note: On turn 25 I failed to deduct the extra wear Bernhardt incurred for accelerating
to the blue line in Correntaio. It has been deducted and his total is now correct.
