Could you guys maybe don´t press ´start´too fast before the race? In Bahrain the timer started to run down very fast, if not too fast...

Agree with this message, barely had time to set a strategy for myself.

I'm pretty sure it says in the rules that we are meant to wait for the league coordinator to push start and begin the count down anyway. If you see the timer go down too quick, press ready and it will show you who pressed it first, will have a tick next to their name.

Good drive @Faerge! First win after you bottled it twice!
A race to learn from for myself...nearly no practice, so I didn´t expect anything of it and after only P9 in Quali I came to the front until P3 but in that pursuit race I got a penalty which would have pushed me down to P4 and if that wasn´t enough, I spun without any reason between T11 and T12 in the last lap which saw me being pushed to to P4 and through the penalty I got only P5 at the line.

Feels good, first win of the season, 3rd times the charm as they say;)

Thanks @Niemand, you need to fail in order to succeed, I myself only really did 40 minutes of practice, but did go through Grand Prix mode to asses strategies and what not, and it definitly helped decide my strategy for the race.

Also, guys, please. Timer started wayyy too early again for China, I barely managed to get my fuel right, and look over pit stop window, and wouldn't have had time to actually set/change strategy.

When in any lobby, Any option to advance or start race, PLEASE DON'T. As soon as someone clicks it, it goes to countdown. Sasha should be the only one starting/advancing

My race went well this week, thanks to all cars who opened up and let me through on the opening lap ;D

Olzen started the countdown this week. I had only had a straightforward change to my strategy (changing fuel load) so I wasn't under pressure, but I concur that we shouldn't start the timer too quickly...

I also note that at least two cars deliberately crashed out this week, which is against the league rules; Section 4.2. While I understand that league racing can be frustrating and rage quitting happens, deliberately crashing out on track can lead to VSC or full Safety car, which can affect the outcome of the race. If you want to leave a race, do us all a favour and come into the pits, then 'retire' from the options menu.

Footage uploading as I write this and will be available here:

It´s against the rules but yesterday it couldn´t cause a (V)SC because the green flag was on the whole circuit since the start and when this is happening, no (V)SC can be caused by anything.
I don´t wanna protect the guys who did it, I know exactly who you mean but just an explanation that it couldn´t harm anyone yesterday...

I need to add that if we would report this that would´ve been 20penalty points for you both @Taraku24 @olzen with which you are only 5 points away from a quali ban(Rule 6.3)....
So please don´t do it again...
