The Lambo was about 3 cm off the road, and the tyres were extremely low profile, probably about 4 cm high. That thing would be damn uncomfortable and impractical to drive in the real world. The Ferrari was huge. The Merc looked to be the best suited to the real world.

Good discussion. Thanks all for putting your thoughts in. It goes to show how there's no black and white answers to a lot of situations, and at the end of the day the umpire has to make a call that people just have to accept and move on from.
My goal here is to make people think about their driving, so that everyone can feel like they are in a fair battle for position.
Intention does count. A deliberate shunt is much worse than an accidental one. But you also have to take the consequences into account, i.e. how much was the other driver impeded.
In turn 1, Volvo ran a bit wide, but Nissan wasn't really impacted much. Racing incident.
In turn 3, it's up to the behind car to make a clean pass. The Nissan only got alongside the Volvo deep in the corner, and then bumped the Volvo off the racing line, so I would not class that as a clean or fair pass. There's not much the Volvo could have done that deep into the corner. If you're side by side entering the corner, the outside car should leave room. But to only get alongside mid-corner, when the leading car is already committed to the corner, then you've left your pass too late.

Let's discuss this incident between the Nissan and the Volvo. Was it a fair pass?
In my opinion, it's hard to call. I'd err on the side of the Nissan being too forceful. The Volvo was on the racing line, but then the Nissan was a fair way up the inside, but it wasn't a clean pass, with the Nissan more or less escorting the Volvo off the track.

Joe just ran a little wide, bumped Mael and really only Joe spun. It was all pretty innocent.Especially as Joe fessed up being responsible for the bump at the start and not Killa.

I was certainly surprised to win race 2. On race 1, AGK was off in the distance somewhere, and I could barely catch Freezer and Joe. I used exactly the same setup in race 2, and soon found myself on 2nd, close enough to AGK to put a bit of pressure on, but not really close enough for a passing attempt. I aimed to pit before AGK, hoping for the undercut, and when he pitted, he came out just in front of me. I knew my best chance to take the lead was to make a pass before his tyres came up, and that's what I managed to do.

This is the final round of the season, at Monza, with Mael 6 points in the lead from Joe. In the previous round at Laguna Seca, Joe scored 12 more points than Mael. Just sayin'.
10 and 20 laps.

Good analysis. Early on, I plotted Medium lap times versus Hard lap times, and found that Hards are faster at the start of the stint (they get up to optimal wear quicker), and then also faster at the end of the stint, when Mediums were worn.
