To make that fair though everyone would have to be allowed to pass the same cars before the race restarted.ian_s wrote: ↑Wed May 16, 2018 8:13 pmthats not a bad idea, just have some different flags in the zones around the cause of the VSC to protect the marshalls, the rest of the track overtaking could be allowed. either that or penalise people outside a 1% of the delta. these are some of the best drivers in the world (yes, even Stroll!) they should be able to lap within 1 second of the delta, not stroll along 3 seconds off.Wouter wrote: ↑Wed May 16, 2018 1:22 pmI agree with that. One should be allowed to past a backmarker even under VSC.Sieper wrote: ↑Wed May 16, 2018 10:39 am
That could be, I too still don't fully understand the VSC rules, or at least how they are being checked/implemented. But still, to loose 3 seconds behind a backmarker (Stroll was getting lapped there) where you normally have a blue flag and they even have to move out of the way, is a bit exorbitant. Maybe you should be allowed past a backmarker even under VSC (if your 40% is faster then the backmarkers 40%). If indeed that wass the reason of Max being stuck there and loosing time.
You could then even get lapped cars passing lapped twice cars and the race ending on time.
They could allow all lapped cars to 'lose' a lap and come through the pitlane at restart or similar, but the restart line would have to be moved
