people seem to be ignoring the ' keep left, double formation icon' people floored it well before the grid, i started P21 but you can see from the clip that people disregarded the indicator... by the time i crossed the line I'd lost 6/7 places... can the stewards please look into it. Im just after clarity please

I'm one of the people who end up starting in front of you. I'm not sure what you were doing but you are supposed to follow the widget and follow the widget only cars ghost so we have been told if someone isn't in their green box it's on them. The further back you start the less time you have to get in place. I know and can provide evident I started on my green square. Which is what the rules tell you to do. It's a completely different situation to the manual aor rolling start. If you jump the start or start out of position the game automatically gives you a pen. I assume if you are further back than you are supposed to be then you don't.

2.6 Widget formation lap/start

● Drivers are at all times supposed to strictly follow the instructions given by the in-game widget.
● Drive through penalties awarded by the game will not be reverted.

That's from the rules and I think that's all people do mate. If you don't you get a dt. I didnt know what happens if you are too far back so I personally stick to it like my life depends on it. I have had a dt before for starting to far left or right and it's not a great way to start a race. I agree though it is chaos the further back you start. I dont think the game gives you enough time to get in place tbh. Even worse the bigger the grid gets.

I did see you starting behind me and wondered if you got a bit confused. :(

Like I said it's because you dont have much time to get in position at the back. If you look at the widget it's shows you that you are miles out of position in the red. I can upload my video with the widget if you like? So you can see people gun it as soon as it goes red and then they slow down when it goes green and they are in position. If you don't do it quick then you are out of position and the speed limit comes on.

If you watch your video you are starting in the yellow you need to be in the green by the time the speed limiter comes on otherwise you start out of position like you did

From that stream you clearly weren't following the widget. You didnt reach the green part and then when widgets switch you slowed down falling even further back (before accelerating over the limit)

The stewards have reviewed the evidence and concluded that no further action will be taken. This is the way the widget works, @VSR Davidben should have been in the green area of the widget before it switched to the maximum speed bit. Not doing so resulted in two cars starting in front of him.

Closed.
