It seems there is an exploit on this track that allows you to cut the second to last corner with no punishment. For us, we aren't going to allow this, so please no cutting over that corner. Doing so will result in penalties.

Probably goes without saying, but cutting would be all 4 wheels over the white line, not the kerb or the green area. :)

This version of Barcelona is so much better than the new chicane version. Also quite fun to drive with this new tire model.

Again sorry for first race, just slightly too little grip. Thought I'd be able to catch it as I have done many times at that corner, but it was too far gone. Didn't realise until too late so didn't hit the brakes right away.

For the sprint race, it was weird because my red lights lasted only about half a second. Usually when it goes red, I do a quick final check that everything is right (basically just that the car is in 1st gear) and then wait for green, but it was so short this time that when I looked back up, it went green instantly and I put slightly too much throttle on, which basically ruined it. But again, sorry to all involved. Also weirdly my spotter wasn't working properly. It said clear going down to T1 but then when I turned in there was a Charlie sized object in the way, which meant I had to turn out the corner rather abruptly, so I think there may have been some sort of issue. Not the first time something like this has happened, but there were 0 indicators anything was wrong :(

Shame for me as I've really enjoyed driving this layout of this track, but it wasn't to be for me today. On to the next one!
