Yeah one time it was me in Spain (btw it was my former teammate who didnt start) but i think these are justWhile this is not relevant right now, there is just one thing that I've been thinking about for a few weeks now that I feel is good to discuss. Is there any way to counteract people who are at a stand-still when the lights go out? I've seen this happen at least two times this season (one of them involving myself).
What I mean is when the lights go out, it has happened that one driver still hasn't released the clutch. This means that if someone further back can't see that the car is stopped until it's too late, that car accidentally shunts the still car's rear and the race is ruined because of front wing damage. However, the race isn't ruined for the driver who stopped, since rear damage doesn't happen very easily, if at all. In fact, by stopping, the car can avoid all carnage into the first few turns and make it through unscathed. I personally think that this is extremely unfair, as it rewards a driver for putting another driver's race at risk.
My question is: can anything be done about this? Are these kinds of incidents just considered racing incidents? If these incidents were recorded, would they be report-worthy?
@Maddog40 I don't know if this question is something that you should be involved in. If not, who should this concern be directed to?
Thank you for your time!
