I have a few questions:
What do I put for completing S13 if I only joined halfway through the season?
Regarding rule 2.5.2: in the Brazil race last season, I crashed out on the soft tyres I set my best lap on in qualifying, I qualified in the top 10 but when it came to the race, I couldn't switch to soft tyres to start on even though i had another set available. If this happens again what should I do?
Finally regarding pitstops, now that pitstops are manual, a driver could potentially hold up his teammate if they double stack. I know this is very highly unlikely cos it'll affect their race as well but I think maybe something could be added just in case.

  • If you were still a driver at the last race of the season, you completed the season
  • As long as the crash wasn't deliberate, you're fine. It shouldn't happen on this game though
  • The stewards will deal with any such incident very seriously. We feel it's something which doesn't really need to be spelt out to the drivers.
@CatfiSh Sundays only I'm afraid. We feel that splitting days leads to lower quality grids. Many of us have families and friends and still manage Sunday nights. We have to cater to the majority. Sorry for any inconvenience.

No. It's about the time you do there and then. We won't really have to consider your PB if you're only a couple tenths off it.

Yeah one. The first evaluation race period begins on the 15th. This information can be found in the league information thread. There's a link in the OP

I’d like to bring up some testing I did regarding ping times, in which I wanted to make sure everyone would be able to have close racing without lag incidents.

And to which I’ve decided that during the races themselves seeing as we will all be racing I think it would be a good idea to disable WIFI on our phones IF YOU WANT.
This is only a suggestion to every member.
I have proof via screenshots of my results too, you might think I’ve gone overboard with details but all I want is everyone to be able to have close and clean racing.
You can see my results in the attachment below

For those with smaller households, it's definitely a good idea. We can only recommend this though. Enforcing it isn't possible.

That’s totally fine, I did mention for it to be optional but thank you for taking it into consideration anyway

Quick question, If i forgot to screenshot the end part for TT laps would video footage be good enough or do I have to have the end screen?
