So...only 8 days till the 24h race and since nobody has posted here, what's gonna happen with the whole safety car/wavearound thing? Like Fram said in his post on page 2, the wavearound system is sort of an "impossible second chance" and imo ain't part of a 24h race. I'm not really sure about having a safety car either for the race, sure maybe it makes it more interesting for viewers but it's not really fair for the drivers. The race should be decided pace and performance wise, not really by safety car. An example: A team makes a gap of two minutes to the team behind them and a safety car comes out. All that lead is lost in a blink of an eye because of a safety car and when the lap is so long (2:15 or so) it sure as hell would be gutting to lose a 2 minute lead just like that. Don't know if others will agree but that's how I see it anyway.
I'm no expert when it comes to judging collisions, but having seen a picture where the gap between him and Isaac is 2 car lenghts before the braking for final corner, I have a hard time seeing how Niki "puts himself safely alongside". That divebomb wasn't brave, it was just over aggressive and a very desperate move in a very early stage of the race.
inb4 niki comes rambling here how I'm being biased cos Isaac's my team mate

Brief Description of Incident Dennis goes for the move on the corner and I leave him room, on the exit he decides to push me off the road. Due to him pushing me off the road, ironically his nF team mate passes me as well.

Brief Description of Incident: #37 keeps swerving on the S/F straight and when I'm already almost aside of him he starts turning into my driving line which leads into a massive crash and our car being completely broken.
Thanks car 39 for crashing us, dunno what u were thinking at the time, using brakes in the exit of a corner to let us pass (I think) and then turn into our car and spin us.
Niki why is it always such a pain to race with you? You already drove me off the road once when I was passing you and then when I had your draft on the S/F straight you kept swerving on the straight and it lead to you turn into me and completely break our car. Really don't see what was the benefit for you to do that.
