    Are these BOP changes ever going to reach non-participants? Or are they meant solely for the competitions?

    Penalty - F Caneo - AC; SnH 60 seconds (not served this round - adding it next round)

    Steward notes:
    • A Zakirov goes onto probation for the reminder of the season due to reckless and aggressive driving
    • There seems to be a couple of rules people dont understand
      1. Double file means double file, not single file and not "i'll chose the spot i want to be in file"
      2. During formation lap, stay in your spot - don't speed up and slow down, stay in your spot!
      3. When spinning, lock brakes - this might not be the perfect solution 1/100 times, but this does make your car a lot more predictable
      4. When you want to overtake, make sure you front wheel is alligned with the rear wheel of the other car, if not you have no claim to the corner.
      Does this come as a suprice, then please go and re-read the rules, because then you probably skipped that part

    13.1.1 Penalties received via a post-race incident review can either be applied to the race results or to the driver/car next race.
    If i don't say anything else, it will be the same procedure like it has been during the season, meaning yes. In the next race.

    Are we likely to see any of the mod updates you have done, in the BOP for the general public who paid for this content?

    great return to racing after failing to run the previous two.

    P4 and P1

    @Jimmi Allison - I would like to know if on the training lap it is mandatory to go with a limiter, I see many people walking away on the training lap removing the limiter and that makes you go further behind.

    Good clean fighting in Split 2 yesterday. Great overtake @Sebastian Pfeiffer into T1 on the outside - that 911 is mighty on the brakes.
    @Roman Yakubovich I was not very happy with our contact in Race 2 at first corners - I made everything to give you enough room in T1 but you didnt return the favour in T2, slightly bent wheel as result for me

    What is a training lap? you mean formation lap?
    Rules are quite clear?
    I dont mind the small catch up since its double file and you cant be level with the other cars when they take the turn quicker (being on the inside). But constantly going off it is not what the rules say.

    One thing i'd like to point out is that some drivers don't seem to pay attention to their starting position before the green flag. They seem to be ok to make sure they actually start ahead of the guy besides them even if they should be behind in terms of grid position ;) not sure if allowed

    people on the formation lap remove the limiter.
    It has already happened several times and in silverstone it came out in position seven and in green flag I started the ninth for this reason.

    people do not respect the position.
