First league race in f1 and I must say that was really fun!

Quali was okay, made a lot of mistakes on my first quali laps but the third one was good enough for p3.

In the race, I was able to get a clean start and maintain p3. I felt very comfortable and knew I had decent pace so by lap 6, I was able to grab the lead. One thing I said I wouldnt do is speed in pitlane and that ended up happening.. Got a 5 second penalty and knew I had to push every lap on my second stint just to make up for the penalty I was gonna have to serve in my second stop. What made things worse was that I thought people were gonna make second stops but most of the field did a 1 stop. On the final stint, I pushed hard every lap using everything I had on the tires to make up the positions. Came out the pits P7 and drove to P2! I finished 3.2secs from jomp. I didnt know jomp had a 3 sec time penalty. I would have used a lot more engine power for the final two straights after getting past pedro in a close fight. Looking forward to racing next week!

help me to understand well. with the current penalties, and looking at the ranking of the game I should be ahead of @tough_2_handle and not behind 3.2 seconds as a final result 5 and not sixth.
I kindly ask the coordinator @HiippariLate to examine the question well because there is something wrong with the rankings at the end of the race.

I finished ahead of you on my screen but game gave me a 5 second penalty for overtaking under yellow flag which is bull **** and am appealing that

Yes I understand. but I finished right behind you, but in the ranking counting your and my penalty are behind you and not ahead as it should be, because I have 2 seconds less and not 3.2 more

Yes the penalty system is not working properly so if the penalty of @tough_2_handle isn't removed you are ahead of him!

Most insane thing from this race is that i didnt get a warning and i didnt speed in the pits. I think i’ve driven 50+ league races and i dont think i have ever finished a race with that happening before

Recording processing as we speak. Will provide it ASAP today. It will show penalty is bull ****. Someone retired in the pit lane causing yellow flag while me fighting with @advanceapple on the start/finish straight
Obviously you should have pitted too or full-stopped on the straight. For safety! Won't somebody pleeeease think of the children!!1
