Ok guys, hope everyone had a good xmas and new year.
It is that point in the season where it's time for the usual Canada GP warning... KEEP IT BETWEEN THE WHITE LINES!!!!
There has already been a huge amount of stewards enquiries from the sunday leagues and some shocking cuts caught on video so please be careful.

For those who haven't seen Fisi's message regarding corner cutting:

"In qualifying; if you make a clear cut on a hot lap, you're expected to not take advantage of it. This means, either aborting the lap, or lifting off the throttle slightly to visibly show that you're not gaining an advantage from it (I barely ever see anyone do the latter, but that's something that would work as a defence in a potential stewards enquiry). Of course, the difficult part here is the where to draw the line between what is a clear cut and what isn't a clear cut, and it's impossible to put a solid measurement on it. But the way I see it, if your car is outside the track limits in a way that is visibly obvious, then it's a clear cut. However if the cut is marginal and right on the limit to the extent have to pause the video and look closely to see if a cut was actually committed, then it's probably not a clear cut.

In the race; it's also impossible to put an exact measurement on what is excessive cutting in the race, but I'd say that if you average more than one clear cut per lap, or if you cut/extend the same corner lap after lap, that would be classed as excessive.

It may sound a bit harsh, but that's how it is. As you know, the rules are in place in an effort to make sure people drive cleanly, and there's no point in the rules if we don't enforce them. So if evidence is reported to us of someone not adhering to the guidelines above, we have no choice but to take action."

See pad isn't as easy as everyone says....all you wheel users like blabla pads so easy, then when you get a wheel user to use pad for a few sessions they're 2/3 seconds off their wheel pace aha.

Yes i can confirm the pad is definitely about 3-4 seconds slower then the wheel haha,
but then the last time i used the thing was on Super Mario so i might be a bit rusty :)
