    Water Blue Racing votes for -10 and no qualify because the FCR driver reversed and caused the TBR driver to hit him as he had no were to go and then the WBR driver came at him as there was no time move away. We are very lucky that only 2 cars were cought from this action of the FCR driver becaused there could have been a lot more.

    To be honest, that's insanely harsh - put yourself in Jesper's situation; pole into the first corner and run wide into a barrier... panic panic panic and reverse without thinking. It's so easily done; but you still need to be careful as it's in lap one and races can be ruined, -6!

    Ive talked with Jesper about this and the only thing he wanted to do was to get his car out of there before he's getting hitted by the other cars. Its not the most comfortable place to stand still with your nose in the barrier.

    I agree with Ross. Having thought how would I react...I can't be sure I wouldn't have slammed it in reverse before my brain kicked in, pure panic.

    no reverse ever with incoming traffic, we guess the idea was to get away from there as quickly as possible but that was the wrong way to do it. vote closed though, would have voted for -12p
