Hey guys, as I was going through the rules, I dug out an interesting one that I think could help us avoid quali lag like we experienced last couple of races :

1.5.2
● In qualifying, it is not permitted to retire from the session while you are out on track, as this may cause your AI car to park on or next to the track and hinder other drivers. If you wish to retire from the session, you must do so while in the garage.

I noticed that the whole lobby experienced massive lag in quali in both Silverstone and Hungary when someone retired. I may be completely wrong about this but it's worth following this rule and perhaps avoid costly lag in future races. What do you think @Proulx2001 ?

Yeh, I completely agree, if drivers wish to retire from the session is must be done so from the pits, at the end of qualifying, once you complete your last lap, even if time remains in the session, you must return to the pits.

Not having the best of seasons!

Been having problems with my wheel (Thrustmaster TX F1 rim), the paddle shifters would stick from time to time, so I changed the F1 rim to the original Ferrari rim.

Qualifying

Came out of the pits, on the approach to the track the paddle shifter stuck into 4th gear and I was spinning like top, lost half of qualifying time and couldn’t get a decent lap in, started 12.

Race

Had a great start but @Briggsy didnt! I couldnt react quick enough and went into the back of him and broke my wing. Got to the pits and forgot to to change the wing, couldn’t keep the car on the track so retired.

A bad workman always blames his tools, so only have myself to blame, this was a potentially a good track for me even starting at 12th and just hope I can put in some decent performances for the remainder of the season.

I know we've had several hosts changes already, but I want to speak up now. I had mega frame issues today in the race, and so did others. I know it might be a pain in the neck, but I crashed out today because of it, the last 2 races my quali has been ruined because of it, and it's starting to become annoying :/

It disconnected me after 4 laps but my connection was fine. I’ve done severall races before this and the people I did this with said I was fine since I I’ve changed my internet. It only seems to come problematic when I come into this lobby for some reason. I was also told it was fine at Hungary

I was also hit by Briggsy at the first corner because he was lagging, so it isn’t only me having issues

This was my first laggy incident but yes I agree with you. I’ve spoke to others and they’ve been and seen lag today and in the past races.
