Whats worse is if a car wins 4/5 laps but the lap it lost was set by a really slow driver then it well get fewer lap points. For example if a car wins those 4 laps by a combined 8 seconds but loses the fifth by 9 seconds.

Braking even counts towards straight line speed which is kinda true on the track. Peugeot needs a good follow up to RC7 R to challenge the Renault. Whsts

No clear winner? The Renault wins every track comparison! So that's 5-0.

The way verdict is calculated seems to give way too much importance on 0-60 type straight line figures. Particularly obvious on this example. 1 second difference on 0-100 gives more points than MRS being ridiculously faster on every circuit?
