    Spa start/finish

    I'm sure this has been answered somewhere before, but why is the start/finish line at Spa after the hairpin and not before it?

    Because that's the starting line used for other categories that aren't F1

    I personally prefer the F1 starting position simply because it's flat.

    I'd like to see two versions:
    1) Like yet, BUT with the large pit (exit after Eau Rouge)
    2) The F1 version
    I'm sorry for my bad english...

    I was looking at the R18 e-tron onboard videos from a couple of years back, and at least the telemetry on that video showed the timing starting and stopping at the top, before the hairpin.

    The start is after the hairpin, but the finish at the "Formula Start/Finish". At 24h Spa its the same. But I still would like to see Spa with more Garages/Pits.

    I prefer after the hairpin, its just one extra overtaking opportunity.

    Seems like La Source would be a brutal Turn 1 in multiplayer.

    I agree, at least eu rouge doesn't involve slamming on the brakes and getting wrecked by the cars in the 3rd and 4th rows trying to win the race in the 1st corner.
