Firstly, the corner cutting issue was a problem for most of us. As you’ll see from my video which I’ll upload soon, I hardly cut the corner all that much and still got a penalty. The game as a knack for then piling up penalties if you keep doing it. Its a massive problem with these Codemasters F1 games and they need to fix it. If i’m honest, some of these were big corner cuts… my advice would be to practice (in advance) at being consistent around each circuit. You’ll get the hand of it – have a look at our previous seasons and you’ll see similar problems to what you’ve had here.
With the Strongo accident, I don’t think he knew you were on the outside… maybe he thought you hadn’t got up to speed so quickly after your slight error where you slowed quite a bit. The clash looked like a racing incident to me as it shows the difference between the different approaches to the corner – you accelerating early and strongo braking later and accelerating later.
Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to catch the actual gaps between everyone at the end of the race. How far did you finish behind strongo? does anyone catch this on camera?
Does anyone have any other opinions on these incidents? Do we need to get the stewards to look at these incidents?
Its Thursday already so we wouldn’t normally do this so late in the week.. next time @vitreouschain you need to state your intention to appeal in the lobby after the race so I can nominate stewards there and then…
