Cant help but feel multiplayer should have a ghost option so there is no contact

Thought it would be nifty to share a race I did in career today at China, driving for Reno.

 

Mixed conditions in Q1 meant that despite going P10 with only 90 seconds left on the clock I still ended up getting the boot in P16. I had a decent start picking up a couple of positions on the opening lap and then overtook a few more cars to be P10 by about lap five. While everyone else around me started on the ultra soft with two scheduled stops, I went for a one stopper, starting on the softs and going to the mediums. Shortly after the front runners pitted there was a VSC which strangely caused them all to pit again and quite miraculously I found myself in first place.

 

I had about a 5 second gap to a train of Bottas-Raikkonen-Verstappen behind me (Hamilton and Vettel qualified poorly, Ricciardo retired), so just managed the gap until the window opened up for my one and only stop. I came out and set the fuel mix to rich and tried to run on high ERS deployment as frequently as I could to ensure that I had a pit window to come out in front of Bottas and co. Fortunately I managed it, by about two seconds, but their faster tyre meant I was in for some fun. Ocon retired and the safety car came out with four laps left to go which I thought would be my saving grace only to have the nightmare of cold tyres to contend with on the restart. Just narrowly holding off Bottas and Raikkonen who were embroiled in a battle of their own, I stupidly opted for the outside line going into the hairpin on the final lap, which let Bottas in, but fortunately I stole the inside line for the final corner to grab my maiden victory. :clap:

Multiplayer is a big mess! The game is stuttering as hell, cars randomly turn into ghosts and of course, there is at least one Dutch kid in every server playing as Verstappen crashing everybody out. :lol:

I have like a D license despite trying to race clean because there is always someone spinning in front I cant avoid or when I can avoid I get done for overtaking illegally.

I dont mind having contact but there should be a no contact race option.

Sure would make defensive driving pretty pointless though. Just quali laps to the end.

Im just saying have the option not to take away what we currently have. And defending is great until you get an idiot who just wants to drive into you.

I can appreciate a good dive bomb. What i cant appreciate is someone who uses you to brake amd then its you that ends up spinning

The driving standards online are *really* bad. The amount of start crashes is hilarious and sad at the same time :lol:

 

Anyone on the PS4 and want to help me win 3 online races for the thropy?  ;)
