PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THE GAME IS VERY UNBALANCED REGARDING THE ASSISTS.
For example, TC helps a lot at the start, off the track and during a 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 some assists. You are free to use or not use these assists. Please don't start any discussions, or do not blame another driver for using or not using the assists. Everyone is free to use the assists they want within the restrictions outlined in dot point form above.

[li]Drivers will not be allowed to drop their worst results from the season.  All race results will count toward the Championship.[/li]
[/ul]
 
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. This rule could be managed differently by your organiser.

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.
  
SPECIFIC CHAMPIONSHIP RULES
[ol]
[li]Anyone who has qualified in the top 10 and then intentionally crashes out during qualification, will be handed a 20 seconds time penalty in the race. An unfair advantage is gained if the new tyre glitch is exploited in the game. If any driver is deemed not at fault the penalty will be removed. However, it will be the drivers responsibility to prove their innocence. If no video is available or cannot be corroborated by another driver the penalty will stand.[/li]
[li]Only the organiser may start the race countdown. Failure to comply with this will result in a 3 point penalty.[/li]
[/ol]

[ul]
[li]F1 2017 voice chat is the official channel for voice communication in this championship.[/li]
