    Question Blue Flag issue.

    Morning all,

    I have just picked up my copy of Pcars2 last week so excuse my ignorance!!

    Last night in a private PS4 lobby, racing at Algarve, I was given a random blue flag. I was 7 laps in and running in 4th place so thought it was weird at the time! But me being the fair racer that I am, I duly eased off on the straight and let the guy through. I dropped to 5th and the guy who passed was very grateful for a bump up in position! After i let him through, the warning went away.

    Im guessing this is a known issue? If i were to ignore it, would i receive a penalty? Is there a workaround for this?

    Just as a side note, I love this game and I was a massive fan of the first instalment too....

    You wont get a penalty ignoring a blue flag. Getting a wrong one happens occasionally, just ignore them. Though sometimes its pretty funny to receive a blue flag being in the lead.

    When it happens, make sure to check the tracklayout.
    Or you can see faster cars moving in to you.

    In short:
    Red dots are opponents who lapped you, or are about to lap you.
    Blue dots are cars who are lapped by you (doesnt mean you are quicker as they might have had a pitstop or repair)
    White dots are opponents in the same lap.

    Great advice cheers. I usually race with no HUD but im sure i could flick and check it. Not a major issue like I say, just didnt want a daft penalty!!
