PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THE GAME IS VERY UNBALANCED REGARDING THE ASSISTS.
In example, TC helps a lot on start, outside the track and during wet race. The game is stable online, but it's not a simulator, we see it as a simcade. In favor to get a full grid, we are allowing all assists. You are free to use or not the assists. Please don't start any discussions, or do not blame another driver for using or not the assists. Everyone is free to use the assists they want.

RESTART RULES
One change from past seasons is in regards to restarts. Due to changes in the "one-shot quali" we will only restart a race session if 1 or more players drop prior to a timed lap being posted in qualification. Any driver who drops from that point until the end of the race session will be considered a DNF.

The only exception to this rule will be if the parameters for Mass Disconnection are met, which can be found in section 4 of the Racing Rules.

I'm hoping we don't get plagued with wet weather again this season using "dynamic". We might have to go to "all dry" again this season in order to make this happen....

Okay dude, got it.  So in other words the lobby/Game was not set up correctly for the weather, so when you do select Random, it really is random:)

No.. i had a preset saved for the lobby setting like we always do with all the other F1 20xx games, but the 2016 one happen to keep the same weather it set when you save your lobby settings. So if the game set the weather Qualify dry and Race Wet, each time i load the lobby setting i saved for PRL, its loading the same weather again and again. When i create a new lobby manualy, the weather change at each race.

Okay, sounds right to me.  However, I did a 50% test quick race yesterday, and even though the weather was clear for the race using the random weather setting,  there was no dry weather for qualification.  I think we may see this type of behavior from F1 2016 for many of the races. Actually, I did two test races, and both were relatively the same.  The second test race the weather was fine for qualifications, but it rained for about 40% of the race:)
