Okay, alternates. Your plaques are down in the ladies room.
Not sure about brake checking. Perhaps I can show my motec data, I did no brake checking whatsoever. Just because I conserve my machinery at different points and laps in a race, doesn't mean anything sinister is going on as you suggest. And to hand such a penalty to a driver without confronting that driver first and asking for data that would prove the penalty false, is amateur to say the least and wreaks of biased favoritism to support some agenda. Very weak.
As for defending a position, especially a podium or the lead,.. if you ever expect me to simply hand it over to anybody, especially a little boi whose impatience outweighs his talent, you are very very wrong. Just because you're impatient and don't have appropriate skill, or you're on a different strategy, not conserving tyres the same as I, or are just simply faster, isn't reason for me to gift you a barbie doll or my position on track.
I defend my position on track when I choose. When I stop doing that, I won't be on your server. If anybody wants to try and be a hero Mercedes driver, I welcome the laughs. Give it your best shot!
i will accept the penalty with no protest but isnt it the outside cars responsibility to leave enough room for a car
when he has been clearly caught at the end of a drs straight rather then cut the apex leaving nothing even though he
knows you are there and visibility in a 2d world means he is guessing if your there or not!
at the very least its just a racing incident!
15.5 - Any driver defending his position on a straight, and before any braking area, may use the full width of the track during his first move, provided no significant portion of the car attempting to pass is alongside his. Whilst defending in this way the driver may not leave the track without justifiable reason.
For the avoidance of doubt, if any part of the front wing of the car attempting to pass is alongside the rear wheel of the car in front this will be deemed to be a 'significant portion'.
At the braking point, you were not significantly alongside Craig and that's the reason for the penalty.
