@mrgrieves @infernojim I’ve decided the rule that y2j quoted stands. However, I agree with the panel’s decision that these kind of corner cutting penalties should not be lifted.
Despite this, I see nothing wrong with these penalties being appealed. If we changed the rules to exclude any corner cutting penalty appeals at all, then moments such as the penalties me and y2j recieved when trying to avoid Lt Alfred at Hungary in season 2, wouldn’t be appealed. Also can you imagine getting a stupid penalty for going wide at that second-to-last corner at Texas and not being allowed to appeal?
I think things should stay as they are but if the majority want this changed I’ll be happy to do so.
Just a reminder so we dont create confusion like this again – Can anyone who appears on stewards panels in future please ensure they look over the rules in the wiki page to ensure consistency. Any decisions should be backed up by what the rules state.
I’ll look at the precise wording of the rules to see if they need tweaking.. Its not all bad though – if real life F1 has ambiguity in the exact wording of certain rules then I’m not surprised we’re having the same issues!
