F1 Senna Equivalent
- Sep 17, 2016
I just wish to add that drivers who are out of track going out of a turn SHOULD NOT, be seen as a cut / penalty. (Hitting sand, example Tidgney / Andrex picture)
This is mainly the only thing I am really frustrated about. Try and see some of the cuts in context to gain or no gain. We are racing ffs, and one should not IMO slow down for a mistake that is clearly out of the track and lost time because of it. And seeing someone receive a cut for being out of the track is wrong!!! Because then I feel like someone is just fast forwarding the replay, sees a cut and add it to the "cut count".
It´s probably better to let @AndrexUK answer this in a more detailed fashion but to make it clear: If you go off, therefore touch the gravel and/or grass and if it is clearly obvious that you don´t gain an advantage, you won´t receive a penalty or warning for it (unless you keep doing it to put other drivers off or danger them in any certain way.) E.G exit of T4 at Zolder, you can´t extend to gain an advantage as the gravel is right there to slow you down. Please stop claiming things like this, it is simply not true.That's wrong. Andrex said it very clearly : If you made a mistake or not, if you lost time or not, won't make any difference, he'll crush you
@ZAL The screenshot of Andrex you´re referring to is a special situation. He was on slicks in wet conditions and he gained an advantage there as it was most likely faster to let the car run straight over the grass than correcting over to the left in those very slippery conditions.
