    Update.

    Interlagos livery regulations also apply to final round, at Fuji. Go nuts.

    @El_Beardo I'm looking a the ballast rules. I finished 9th, so does that mean no change for me at the the next race, or would 9th and below all get -5% off their weight as 8th does?

    Ballast only applies to the top three finishers. And only the one with ballast is allowed to remove it accordingly to their next finishing position.
    So you and I and every one after #3 has nob and carries on with the same weight.
    Or that is how I understand it.

    So that puts me at +2% for the next race?

    Could possibly have made things a bit more clear :lol:

    If you finish 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, you gain 3, 2, and 1% respectively. Up to a max of 5%.

    If you have ballast, and finish off the podium, ballast gets removed at 1% for each position down the grid you've finished.

    Eg - Having full 5% ballast, and finishing 4th, will remove 1%.

    Finishing 6th will remove 3%.

    Edit. I'll update one the original posts with ballast for each driver, a bit later on/in the morning.

    Aye, it's a ballache. But, working from home the past few months, I've managed to end up with just short of 2k sitting in my account. So, I'm not panicking just yet :lol:

    Potentially have something lined up. But, not sure about the whole "technically self employed" thing. Need to give 'em a call tomorrow.

    Update. Ballast for next round below (also noted in points post) everyone else runs at the usual 95%.
    Practice sessions for Autopolis start tomorrow night . . Feels like it's going to be slippery until the tyres warm up.

    Looks like I'm in the 'Am' class for the foreseeable future, lost 17k DR for no reason earlier today after an FIA Race.

    Yup it sucks, always feels harder to get to DR A than to stay there.

    Practice lobby tonight at 22:00UK time.

    I'll probably run until 22:45, and then switch lobby settings to match @Drex124's Fuji Group C event.

    I'd say by default I can't do any official practice sessions during the week since I'm western US and always still at work.

    i'm sure that there's something in rules which says any podium finishes incurs ballast and a 'no practice for next race' stipulation anyway :lol:
