Did Nico put it in the escape road on purpose?

Yes, he pulled a Schumi at Rascasse
No, he just overran the corner.

By the word tweak what exactly did you mean vintly? Resisting the temptation here V , indulge me ;)

Hey BD, see my earlier post, starting:

There's an idea for F1 .

Or here's another one:

Cars line up on the grid as per the results of the previous race, whatever format that was.

Number of laps equals number of cars. The car at the back of the pack at the end of lap 1 has to retire immediately. Same on lap 2, and lap 3, and so on. After 20 laps, or however many cars there are, you're left with the winner. Points awarded for how many laps you've lasted.

Yes it's crude, but boy would that be exciting, every lap.

My proposal is to score by passes.  Each pass is one point.

That way qualifying would be an inverted grid, and the top time would be easily set for passing the entire field.

It solves the 'blue flag' problem.

It solves the tire degradation problem.  (Pit stops would be favourable, providing more passing opportunities.)

Love it...even encourage back markers to protect their position - ban the blue flags.  You are the queen of out of the box thinking Jeri.   :good: :good: :good:

Yum yum, smells fantastic, I am in Vintly. Putting the 20 quid on the line, none of the things you mentioned before will not be happening in the next 4 years  :D

Sorry for the earlier mishap, my words got lost between your quotes  ;)

Yes of course we are having one as I have edited my previous post. The game is ON Vintly (Been watching too much of Sherlock lately  8) )
