Good to see Codemasters have good boundaries and knowledge of track limits.

Sad thing with that corner is, in the race if you miss the first apex and hit the 2nd apex a bit hard, loosing time, you get a warning for that. Sometimes a straight out penalty. It's terrible. I'm literally gonna practice that on loop, to make sure I never do it.

Ok guys:
I´m having a weird and annoying issue right now:
Normally, my internet connection is fine and it´s good enough to race wheel-to-wheel (as you guys can hopefully confirm).
Tho since the last week, I have the issue, that at the start of qualy and at the race start, my ping suddenly goes up to 100ms for 30 sec, until it stabilizes again. This results to my car being laggy (although not so much that it would jump around and is a potential threat) at the start. Obviously I´m trying to resolve that issue. However, shouldn´t I find a solution, am I raceworthy nevertheless @The Genius ?

I do not know how bad it is but I hope you can fix it till the next race so it is as stable as possible.:)

Well in that race you massively de-synced for me. I crashed into your car like 4 times in the race. I think ti was just with me tho cause @SMEAJ had no issues at all (he was host tho)

I really don't know who to predict this race, I think for some reason @Lunation is gonna be really fast and maybe @DackeBerg I don't know just gut feeling. Perhaps Lun for pole, then podium of Thm, Koldo and Lun? idk

I think you were desynced as you suddenly were in front of me and I asked in discord what was happening. The guy right behind me said I shouldn't worry as you were desynced :D

This isn't gonna be fun. I just did a race all on my own, no pressure nothing and still got 5 penalties which ofcourse amount to 15 seconds. I'm gonna have to do something radical to keep it under 9 seconds (the limit it set myself). i don't know how good my pace is tho, I can do a 1:10.9 in quali and my best race time was a 44:00.

One thing aswell, can like different splits slightly adapt the rules? So say we wanted safety car on (which I do) and we set up a poll and there was an option that the majority voted for could we adapt the rules? @The Genius

Generelly no because we want all leagues to be the same but I could consult with other staff to see what they think.

I believe last season there was one PC split who had voted SC on. But SC is very glitchy: you may get your race ended because of incorrect penalties or so. I'm not sure SC enabled will be fun.

What to say ? I came to the race sick, sleepless from saturday night and almost practiceless, without any motivation, determination and focus because I was to tired ^^
Q : in qualy I just made sure I putted a lap on drys which saw me taking P3
R: Carefull start, keep P3, a gap between me and P4 was already there before @SMEAJ take it.
I broke a bit of my front wing in the early stages of the race at the last chicane so i couldn’t anymore catch @Lunation and then made the same mistake a few laps later and crashed on my own again but that time it ended completely in the wall of champions.
See you guys next week, hopefully in better shape xD !

[Video to come later in the week]

Forgot to record this one sadly, was too busy concentrating then realised once I crossed the line none of it was recorded, so I'll give it in text.
Q: Stayed out on inters and did the calculations while out on track. Realized it'd be tight but went for it anyway. Crossed the line with 1 second left. Then lose out by half a tenths cause I was a pussy and didn't wanna crash.
R: Maintained 2nd off the start, then at some point into T6 (Vettel corner), @Lunation did a Vettel. Then the gap became stationary for 2 laps till I began to pull away. @Thm786 crashes.
Then @Lunation pits early, and @SMEAJ comes in the lap after. Being the great friend he is, then tells me Lunation is in traffic, so I decide to stay out to lap 13, and pit onto ss. I re-join 3 seconds ahead of @SMEAJ and he was on great form as per usual, so I struggled to pull away despite him being on s.
Then Smeaj gifts me the win by crashing, the second I receive my 2nd penalty of the race. Then I believe Lunation pits for some reason, so it's now @koldo who is incredibly consisteny, has better tire wear and I thought was faster.
I begin to pull away from him then it stabilizes at 11.4-11.8. Then on lap 33 I make a mistake which drops it down to 10.9. At this point I have 3 penalties, however at the time I was not sure if I had 3 or 4. So I sweat my balls off for that final lap in case I have 4 and he didn't have a penalty. Luckily he did have a penalty and I only had 3 penalties. Very happy with that nothing to complain about this time. I've watched a few of the incidents that happend behind, and same as usual.
Very happy with that one. I won a race on pace.
