    Pit stops - Mandatory or not?

    So I played a few races with the 'mandatory' pit stops and wondered why I pitted early in a good position, but finished the race near last. And then figured out why : most players never pitted at all.

    So in the next few races with pit stops, I did not pit. Some did not disqualify me at the end of the race, some did. (Seemed to be the races with higher number of the laps that dq'd me. The couple with only 5 laps did not dq me.

    What gives?

    I guess that's up to the race organisers discretion...sad though because why add a mandatory pitstop as a requirement and then don't punish those who don't use it...
    I presume you're talking about online lobbies right?

    If Flags penalties isn't on then no need to mandatory pit.

    Mandatory pit is a stop-go.
    No need to take fuel or tyres.
    I've missed the pit once (thought I'd do a cheeky final lap stop at spa) but got DQ.

    Seems a bit silly.
