  1. There are a few other issues that I’ve come across:
    When I changed drivers mid season the driver picture changed but the name didn’t.
    Twice I didn’t get a grid penalty when I fitted PU parts above the alloted number.

    I like the option for allowing less accuracy with the weather forecast and for PU failures, except when the turbo fails after 8 laps then again (with a brand new one) 1 lap into the next race. But that’s motor racing!!!
