OK, the netcode is better bar a few weird moments with cars and wheels steering in the wrong directions.
It's still a ridiculous system though, and only marginally better than before. Kicking everybody after the race is a joke (who actually wants that?), and if they went for the "realism" aka "race weekend" route (excuse) why do you have things like how the qualifying session ends on the stroke of 0:00? It just feels so half-arsed to me, like it's not important to them at all. Probably won't sell many more if they make it brilliant so why give a damn about it? Add an "exotic car" and sales go boom. We pondered whether online was a priority for them, and clearly it wasn't.
