So, with Season 2018 allowing saves after each session again, I started out on a sprint Cup season. First race in zolder is wet but i still manage to hold on to pos. 10 which I qualified in. I go into pits, only have tire change checked but just as i reach my stall i see there is also a triple "repair damage" bit. too late, I stay in the pits 54 secs and come out on track second to last :(
Do I figure this right, the idea is to uncheck these repair boxes and just go for it, because else the mandatory pit stop is the end of your fight for position?
