Okay, first of all yes i'l say that incident was probably largely my fault. and I'd like to apologise .

But I do like to say that when I started the recovery process from my perspective i was still on the track (in the replay it might look slightly different, but replays like this in games generally aren't that accurate anyway ) it's just so happens to be that because I had the clutch held in to restart the engine it caused me to roll off track and I hadn't really noticed.

If I were to have locked the brakes and stayed stationary, the car would have not rolled back and stayed on the racing line and would have been in just about the same position as when the Collision happend but turned 90° right so even more dangerous/bigger obstruction.

also as you can see I made a very sharp turn left to avoid a possible collision as I assume Steve would slowed down enough to take the inside line to avoid a collision

Seeing as my move only made my car a smaller target and a bit further away from the apex ( so more time to react and avoid a collision) I think this collision would have happend either way would I have moved or not and would have been a lot worse. if I were to have stayed stayed stationary.

and at last I disagree with this costing Steve p2 as If I were to have waited I would have only been slightly behind and with the pace I had I feel like I could have easily overtaken again.

As you said you had the clutch in which made you roll off track,you shouldn't have rejoined until it was clear or safe to do so. I was going to take the inside line until I saw you moving back onto the track which made me try and go around you to avoid contact, we had very similar pace so how you can say you would have overtaken me again easily is a bit confusing.I will leave this to the stewards to decide if you should have rejoined or not.

Having reviewed the footage provided, the Stewards deem this a dangerous rejoin and a breach of our Driving Standards, in particular, sections 2.1.1:

"Should a car leave the track for any reason the driver may rejoin but only when it is safe to do so and without gaining any advantage"

The Stewards have determined that RPJ made an unsafe rejoin, directly into the racing line, with a clear view of another car approaching T1. The Stewards deem this incident worthy of a 25-second time penalty for @RPJ, to be added to his final race time. It is only through the quick reactions of steveg200, avoiding a serious collision, that has prevented a harsher penalty being applied. We advise all members to be aware of your surroundings and exercise patience and caution when rejoining the track.


Are you both happy to release this publicly? If one refuses the thread will stay hidden, please leave a reply in here.

sure, make it public although I completely disagree with the assessment and 25 sec is ridiculous imo
