Traditional synchronization techniques are usually challenged by Faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) signals which discard orthogonal pulses to the advantage of an increased spectral efficiency. In this paper, we studied data-aided timing estimation in FTN scenarios, based on the Cramér--Rao bound minimization. We established a closed-form approximation of the bound to explain the relation between optimal pilot sequences and the waveform's parameters (i.e., signaling density and pulse shape). In particular, we showed that optimal sequences at the Nyquist-rate are non-informative in FTN scenarios if regular lowpass pulses are used.
