    Is there going to be a fix for invalid laptime?

    I am sick to death of if you spin or go off close to finish line in Quali, you're laptime and next is invalid! so frustrating i can deal with the laptime of present lap but why next lap! so Effing annoying will this be fixed?

    There's nothing to fix. If you take, say, the final corner at Snetterton flying over the corner then you've got a fast start to your next lap just by not following the track. It's a good rule.

    It is not a good rule surelly the computer can know whether an advantage was gained or not?
    so i spin to a standstill on last corner get car back on track probably lost 20 secs, why should my next lap be invalidated?

    Don't know if it helps but if you go back down the track a little bit before returning to the black stuff you might not lose the next lap. Found that once or twice last night.

    Because the computer does not know if it was a mistake or on purpose.

    well that's obvious, but surely it could gauge if an advantage was had? just another thing wrong with this game!

    Not really because it would have to decide what the maximum possible speed coming out of a corner would be which is pretty much impossible.

    As I said above try going back before the final corner before rejoining the track. It worked once or twice at Snetterton 200

    With respect, if you keep binning it on the final turn, then it's your driving that's wrong, not the game.

    This is a deliberate design decision. You could gain an advantage by going off track at the last part of the prior lap.

    There is nothing wrong with this at all.
