Monza quali slipstream

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Atze Kerkhof, Aug 26, 2010.

  1. Hi,

    Just wondering about the thoughts of slipstreaming on Monza the next GP in WS. Last WC in Spa it was not allowed, but for WS I don't know?

    I'd say to disallow it to prevent turning the quali session into a mess and giving everybody an equal chance.

    How is the rest thinking about it?

    well if this is banned i think guys should check on cutting corners to gain time but doing it withing 10% of laps or so to evade penalty. just had idea and mostly when i have idea about something someone else had it too...
  3. Hm..? Slipstream not allowed? Did I miss something?
  4. Only during qualifying session. You can gain a lot of time in this track ...
  5. i think slipstream shouldnt be allowed....it will become ridiculous if it is...u gain 0.2 0.3 on s1 and s3 a bit less!!!very unfair
  6. How do you actually want to set a hotlap without slipstream, I mean, it's a sort of impossible. I guess the only way to fix it, is private qualy..
  7. Other drivers shouldn't be a problem.. But teammates shouldnt give eachother a slipstream on purpose in quali.
  8. That seems a bit silly imo if anyone is caught doing so I think DQ or DQ from qualifying at least or something liek that.
  9. It's impossible to avoid slipstream with 26 cars.

    Well i agree its stupid that you can help your teammate with slipstream in qualifying if you want to... but what can you do?
    Not like rules are perfect in everything else than this too and as i know it RULES ARE THE SAME ALL YEAR so sure lets ban slipstream in qualifying to 2011 but lets not touch rules midseason cause thats what i know is always done.
  11. Sorry, but why the hell should that be banned? Slipstream is part of racing and helping teammates is also important. Absolut nonsense in my view to even talk about that.
  12. like Peter said, how you want to avoid slipstream with 26 cars on track?
    So with this rule, if somebody don't like someone, he just have to go in racing line to give slipstream and the guy who will be in slipstream will be DQ.
    If you want to avoid slipstream in quali, better way is to do private session.
  13. +1

    FSR want to be as real as possible. So you need to use the procedure like in F1. And in Spa or Valencia wasnt it forbidden even the circuit had long straights.
  14. +1
    nothing more to say. Just use normal rules like in other tracks.
  15. In real racing you can't gain 15 kph (or more, it depends on your gearing) with the slipstream like in rFactor. In real racing you can't follow a teammate with similar skills in dirt air. And Monza is full of long straights, it's easy to do and gain a lot of time.

    Let's be serious ...
  16. Eau Rouge and Blanchimont compared to Parabolica and Start/Finish. In my opinion it is the same as on every track. Or did we a privat qualy in monaco? or will we do it in Singapur? or was slipstream banned in Malaysia or will it be in Abu Dhabi?
  17. Good luck all :D It's clear now
  18. Well, it will be clear once the Race Director says what to do ...
  19. Agreed :)
  20. Agree with that, a ban that would never be done in real life shouldn't be done in simulator either.
    Also Monza is on of those special tracks but I think the 'unfair' advantage (I call it basic physics) will not prove very much in the long race.
