    Question Automatic KERS? (LMP1)

    I admit it's been a while since I've last played the LMP1 class in Project CARS 2, but the other day I tried it and was surprised to see the KERS automatically draining the battery during driving. It was manual before, I had to press and hold the "B" button in order to use stored energy. Now it does it all by itself, continuously, as if I was holding the button no matter what. I tried both the Audi and Toyota and both do the same. It messes up my laps because the car uses extra energy even when I wouldn't like it to (like immediately after crossing the start/finish line) and the time I can use KERS runs out pretty quickly, I can't distribute it during the whole lap. What gives? Is this a bug or is this how it's supposed to work now? I haven't changed anything in my settings or my controller configuration, KERS is still on the "B" button only it's obsolete now. Have I missed something?

    In the LMP1 class (2014 cars) KERS is used automatically at >90% throttle. In the LMP1H class (2016 cars) you need to manually hit the KERS button.

    Thanks. Has this always been the case? I honestly don't remember it working like this. I always pushed it myself but also don't remember which cars I used.
