Platform + League: PC F3 League Coordinator: @Hooper@JSR
Members Involved: @Jezza
Description: Jezza cut turn 1 on lap 1 and gained a few positions because of it. The game didn't give him a 5 sec stop-go for this either I'm pretty sure. Evidence:
In my opinion, in the situation I was put in, I had to either cut T1; go wide (taking you out instead) or slam on the brakes and potentially cause a 4 car pileup. What I did, considering it was Lap 1 T1, was justified in order to avoid taking anyone out and to avoid specifically you. After seeing both Wazzza and Ripsn gain damage I did not want to risk running into the back of them or taking anyone else out.
The stewards have looked over the footage and comments provided and felt that @Jezza gained a sustaining advantage by cutting turn 1. He will therefore receive a 10 second time penalty and 5 penalty points. The penalty seconds for the time gained and the penalty points for the fact the overtakes were illegal.
