Fastest lap point with track limits warning

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

In online mode, when someone get the fastest lap, his name will have purple background, even if getting the fastest lap with warnings when cutting corners. The question is... will earn the extra point?  How it works on real F1?

 

Thanks.

In real life, it's a rolling target - depends on how the stewards feel during any given week. It's not nearly as rigid as the game.

Normally, track limits get ignored and every laptime counts, so a fastest lap will count regardless of whether the driver ran 2 metres wide or not. Occasionally, like at COTA a few weeks ago, they develop a sudden urge to delete laptimes and a fastest lap gets invalidated if deemed inappropriate, and it doesn't even show in official records, hence that fastest lap is different than in the game, where the lap still shows.

So we're not comparing apples to apples here at all.
