    Btw that's probably why they used that finish line...

    Donington seems to have the start / finish line in the wrong spot also ? Any reason for it's placement?

    LA source isn't too bad. Its a slow hairpin. Eu Rouge is what catches people out in MP. Some don't realise the racing line doesn't always belong to them, and its fast with gradient changes and nasty kerbs that throw you if you don't get it right.
    I rate it worse than turn 1 Monza.

    It does if you try racing the Formula A AI, from a standing start they ascend the hill as if a stray dog has run across the track!

    But Eau Rouge is far from unique in that sense at Spa, the above AI are very messy through a number of corners, mostly but not only due to those "artistic license" poles placed on various corners.

    They also take Pouhon far too slow while taking hold a very tight line, easy pickings overtaking them around the outside while keeping at least two tyres inside the track defining white lines.

    At Bus Stop, they tend to be overly aggressive.

    etc.

    Indeed, I cannot for the life of me understand the placement of the finish line at Donington. The finish line is (in real life) prior to the start line and indeed is clearly marked on the game. (But does not work)
    The working "finish line" currently has no markings and is way too far down the pit straight.

    Spa start finish line is specifically for the Old pits which is more frequently used by support races this is different from the Formula 1 cars.

    This happens at monza too, the irl finish line is about 300m before the starting line
