On my screen, the whole lobby had a 1 bar connection. The connections would occasionally flicker to 2-3 bars but damn, lap 7 was a nightmare. I found myself inside @Nexus1011's Manor then @F1_Dan teleported from outta nowhere and speared me into the wall. I retired because that sort of lag just isn't enjoyable to deal withIn qualy I saw a couple cars lagging, so I decided just to stay on the grid for about 15 seconds while everyone got away, didn't work as even though I did wait I still got hit by a recovering lagging car in S2 and that was on still lap 1.
Once I recovered I still drove the first stint and was content enough overall, so had a bit of fun and bolted on a fresh set of SS tried to set the FL, but came up one tenth short at the time and I left before halfway as I wanted to watch the FR2.0.
Looks like I did the right thing considering the whole lobby dsc'ed it seems, but something I noticed was while in the lobby (pre-qualy), seeing a lot of different national flags and 1 red bar out of 5 for some of them (obviously can't be helped), but had the feeling there was going to be some lag issues. (I had green 4 out of 5 and the host @DemoN F1 had 5 out of 5 on my screen)
Will say probably was a good thing damage was off, otherwise there would have been a fair few retirements in the opening laps.
