Looking forward to that one although I won't have much time to practice...

Will T1 be monitored in any way, considering how easy it is to cut + how much you gain from it? I'd assume it's impossible since some people can't record (like myself), but I'm not the one to judge...

I guess it is what the game allows is allowed - there will be some time penaltys anyway (cut inside or extend limits at the exit). If everyone goes into the race with that mindset there should be no advantage for anyone.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

i reckon if you rape turn 1 and get a 10 second penalty for this track the stewards will be less likely to take the penalty away so i suggest everyone to eather learn where the limit is or keep it within the white lines and dont force anything :)

T1 is very sensitive in case of cutting or extending track on the out of corner, but if someone gets 1/2 three second penaltys and those seconds would change result, I think stewards should be more mild and remove them. Especially on worn tyres it is even harder to go thru there cleanly without cutting or track extending.

It is still your fault if you cut the corner or extend the track at the exit - no matter how worn the tyres are. Extending track limits means you should have slowed down to not do that - so you gained an advantage (even if it is only 0,001 seconds) and you are right to be penalized.

OK, I understand, maybe I take it more non-restrictive than you guys (also I have to work on my track extendings, I get way too many penaltys)

Dumbest thing I ever heard. Sry mate. And btw, T1 is ridiculous, cut by a mile is ok, but extend with a millimeter is warning! (which is ok). But as i said in the main thread(?), will be interesting to see S1-times. Atleast in Q.

Anyway, looking forward to this one. Had a sick battle last season with @MassaChaussettes that went on for probably 20+ laps, switching positions all the time, and all clean.

In the end it's easy: Always stay within the white lines, regardless what the game says! If you do misjudge the corner and cut it/extend it and don't get a warning simply lift of the throttle a little to negotiate your advantage you gained.

Sometimes it looks like I say something inappropriate, because of using different language. There are some phrases that I can't say/explain in English but in Polish it's possible. As a result I say something and I don't really mean it, sorry.

I can record it without any issues whatsoever. I've just been too lazy cutting my footage and putting it up on YT this season.
I'll happily share my quali-lap with you all.
