    Thumbs up Invalid current and next lap

    I find most artificial timing penalties frustrating, but this is awful. 'current lap' invalid is fair and makes sense, but next lap as well? WTF?

    Invalid next lap only happens when you gain advantage on some of the last corners of the track. Prevents you from gaining an advatage to next lap, example on some tracks if you cut the last corner,you get much higher speed when starting next lap than you never would driving inside track.

    In my exprience that is not true. I feel it happens if you go off anywhere in the whole last section of the track.

    I find the same. Every time I have been hit with it, it has usually been when I have been off track completely and lost time.

    This is the way it is. On Lemans if you go off on the fast s curves you will invalidate the next lap time aswell. This makes no sense because there is a very slow s bend, and another s bend that is even slower.

    it's annoying, but not as bad as Assetto Corsa's "solution", of making you slow down for a set period.

    I cant see how it is annoying, you know the tracks has the white lines on both sides there for reason

    The theory is that although you might come off and it makes you lose time in that moment, it could enable you to take a different line off the last corner and come out slightly faster than you should be able to had you stayed on track. If you exit it just 2mph faster, that could equate to 10mph over the line and hence give you a 10mph head start on what should be possible on your next lap.

    Aye but just think, your in Quali going for an insane lap, make a mistake, damn but ok I have time for one more lap.
    But no, wait, I've been hit with that penalty despite not gaining an advantage, 9 times out of 10 it isn't on a part of the track that can affects your speed for the start of the next lap.

    I understand the logic and that is a great idea, it just hasn't been greatly implemented.
    For example on Coppice corner at Donington, my Achilles heel on that track, if I go off there I still have the chicane to navigate, thus not affecting my speed to start the next lap yet I get that penalty affecting both this and the next lap!
