    I know this gets talked about a lot, but is there a definitive answer that I can't seem to find about the door number?
    I've heard that the best theory is either where the game thinks you'll finish, or what place you need to make to improve your rating.
    I don't think this is true, I've been doing a lot of the GR.4 on red bull over the last couple days, and i'm almost always door 1. I'm not nearly the highest driver, and I don't usually quali better than 5th. Not to mention, the best I've ever done on an online race is 2nd. It also seems unreasonable to have to get 1st to improve rating.

    Now, are the door numbers the same for everyone? so Can I see a 1, but in someone else's game, it's something else? hmmm...

    another idea is that perhaps it's the order we registered for the race? But I'm sure I'm not always the 1st one.

    whatever, but if anyone really knows, and there's an already posted answer, can you point me in the right direction?

    Of course, this could all be a great mystery...

    Thank you! Now that makes sense and is consistent with my experience! Couldn't find it
