I have multiple incidents I want to report. I apologize to the stewards for taking up a lot of their time.

Date: 2019-06-20
Event: Revolution Cup, Season 7, Round 1, Race 2
Member Involved: @kobusnell @Sonic @UnstopaPaul @Blue Monkey @Elodyr
Replay Timestamp / Lap: Race start, 7:50
Description: I would like to bring this to the attention of the stewards because it was a large incident, and I would like a call on it. Obviously incidents like this can't occur repeatedly.
My start wasn't bad, but I had to lift slightly due to the car in front of me not having the best of starts. Drivers behind me and @UnstopaPaul had better starts, and going into and through the first corner we were 5 wide. This inevitably led to an incident. I was on the outside, felt sticking on the left of the car, and tried to break it with as little input as possible. I think the video shows what follows.
Although I have an opinion, of course, I would like everyone's and the stewards' input, please, to, at the start of the season, set what the approach at race starts, and general racing, should be.
Evidence: See video

It seems pretty clear cut for me. VSonic gets a flyer, runs wide pushing Kobusnell to the edge of track, then turns in, probably over-corrects and hits my back wheel. VSonic doesn't wait afterwards

EDIT: While the lovely screenshots make it look 5 wide - it's very clearly becoming 2 wide as I think BlueMonkey was conceding position

I had a very good start and went on the inside of Paul where I stayed for the entirety of T1. After that I could've went more to the outside but didn't, because I wasn't aware of the full situation of us going 5-wide at some point^^

Imo Paul, Kobusnell and me didn't do aynthing wrong in this case. Monkey went into a gap a bit opportunistically, but corrected it with pulling a bit back when he realised there's no space. Sonic forced his position in T1 and at the exit a bit and from the looks of it wanted to give space to Kobus after their contact which was made in a bit of a fast move hitting the side of Paul.

I second that.
Was tempted do go for the gap, but then I had a "bad feeling about it" and pulled back, which was the right decision it seems.
