just bought a f430 spider, quick question!

i've never driven an f-1 before. when i'm coming off the freeway in 6th, should i just break all the way down the ramp to get to the lower gears, or downshift using the paddle?

thanks

You should try to avoid engine braking but you do need to downshift as you are dropping speed.
