Has anyone else wondered why, if you cut the corner even slightly at turn 2 or 3 at Hockenheim the car comes to a sudden stop on grass?  There is a crash sound as if the car has hit a wall. This is a mistake.  Corner penalty or slow down but not full stop and back away.

That’s one of the half-assed attempts Bugmasters implemented to curtail drivers taking short cuts. This is the same for some turns in a few other tracks.

Yes that was implemented about 3 updates ago. I used to get caught there often 😂

Yeah, I love when the bots push you to the inner side if the first swing and your race is over before it really began.

If the aim of the game is to produce a realistic racing experience this is a ridiculous way of dealing with corner cutting.  In every other track the car slows down on the grass and engine cuts when you get back on the circuit.  Those penalties make it impossible to catch another car in a duel.  Those penalties are good enough!!  Invisible walls are just wrong and should be removed or replaced with visible walls.

This is very annoying in Monza in the second chicane. Even quite small cut results in hitting an invisible wall. On the other hand there is no such thing in Monaco (chicane after the tunnel) - here you can drive straight with only a time penalty and still gain, especially if it gives a chance to overtake.

I drove across the whole complex infield at Hockenheim with no wall. If Codemasters are going to stop cars; Put a visible wall on screen.  If not, leave it to slow downs and engine cuts.

An invisible wall at Monaco tunnel exit chicane would be greatly appreciated though

At the same time, adjust the corner cut penalty When taking that turn correctly with two wheels on the tack and remove the bump out in the wall at the exit in that turn that takes wheels off.
