Annoyingly I've been unable to have any practice other than an hour last week... I'm away from tomorrow so can't do any other eval races so this'll have to be it ? Excuses coming out already...
I'm the same mate I haven't been on since the patch and had to get a new ps4 as mine decided to die

Can you come in whenever you like?
2.2 Pit stops

2.2.2.1
Pit stops are mandatory, but what constitutes a pit stop? You are required to do the following,
- Enter the pit-lane, applying the pit-limiter.
- Completely stop in your box.
- Leave the pit-lane safely.


You therefore are not required by the rules to change tyres, or refuel, or do any repair work. However, you may complete these changes whilst completing your mandatory pit-stop.

2.2.2.2
Pit Window - You may not complete your mandatory stop at the end of the first lap unless you have damage. You must also complete your mandatory stop with 5 laps to go.

2.2.3
Failure to pit during the race, or complete your mandatory stop as listed by the rules will result in disqualification from the race.

Haha it's alright mate we'll just settle for Tier 5 this season ;)

On another note, has anyone tested with the pit stops? Not sure whether it's worth changing for tyres and fuel or just coming in, stopping and going again.

No, don't change tyres. It is extra 15 seconds which you don't need to lose. Plus, tyres last very well around Imola. Same goes for fuel.

What I do not understand is this: Are you going to force a pit stop though a lobby, or is it up to us to go in, stop and leave? @Michel--NL

I would imagine its set up through the lobby with the mandatory pit stop option which means you would need to set a pit strategy.
Hopefully, otherwise I don't see how can you monitor all drivers

I was confused by this rule ''- Completely stop in your box.''

If mandatory pit stop is ON, good luck not stopping in a pit lane

Thanks man, yeah my Plan A was to change nothing as I've not been able to test the fastest options here.

Yes, mandatory pits stop option is used or else this would not work.

You still need to stop your car by yourself, the game will not do that for you ;)
