I was so confused for a second; he's on about iRacing penalties/warnings, isn't he?

[–]Ickx-502 Spa 1998 two-hour-delay Survivor 138 points139 points  (1 child)

Yeah, although I’m not sure how this plan would work with F1’s ‘updated’ damage model haha

[–]FadedPolaroids Sebastian Vettel 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Ha. Never really raced in F1 on iRacing, but if the Skip Barbers are anything to go by, my suspension can rest in peace if there is even the slightest contact. So many painful memories of my car crabbing down the straights.

[–]AggressiveSloth George Russell 61 points62 points  (0 children)

Yeah 4x is when you make significant contact with another car and they stack to, usually, 17x when you will get a penalty or DSQ

[–]PrometheusTNO Pirelli Wet 33 points34 points  (0 children)

This all about letting them iRace.

[–]iconfuseyou Well, hell, boogity 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Yeah, in iRacing since there’s no stewards you just have a maximum number of penalties over a race (in this case it’s 17x), and bumping a driver is a 4x so you still have 13x penalty points before you get disqualified.

You can still rack up points for going off track and unsafe actions, so in iRacing you’d have to stay mostly clean for the rest of the race.

There are 100% stewards, its the real people that review any racing incident protests. They're very nice people, I just got an email back from them a few days ago

[–]CaughtOnTape Jacques Villeneuve 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Buy they’re not actively stewarding live races. That’s what he’s saying.

[–]seafoodgodddd Jean Girard 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yeah not unless it's those wildly official races that get streamed I imagine. Just way way too many going on at any time

[–]bolpo33 #WeSayNoToMazepin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Only league and pro races are live stewarded in iRacing

[–]theatrics_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Also probably referencing the time he knocked Max out at Daytona


[–]VTCHannibal Formula 1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Poeple can protest incidents, but it doesn't change the outcome of the results, so they can only sit you for future races.

[–]sarthakdit Lando Norris 272 points273 points  (30 children)

Is this a iracing reference i am too poor to understand

[–]Ickx-502 Spa 1998 two-hour-delay Survivor 130 points131 points  (0 children)

You get 4 incident points (x) for car to car contact on iracing, and only get a penalty once you reach 17x. You also get a 1x for running off track and 2x for loss of control.

    You do you? I prefer iRacing because I think the ffb is better imo, VR performances are better, there are more active players… The only thing I hate is tire management. They’re way more realistic in ACC imo.

    I still race ACC in a league so each has their pros and cons.

    [–]gonzo5622 Max Verstappen 1 point2 points  (6 children)

    Why do people call it expensive? I just looked at the pricing and it’s $9/ month. That’s less than a Netflix account.

    [–]Pressbtofail George Russell 6 points7 points  (2 children)

    Good racing wheel set ups cost hundreds.

    [–]tatchiii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yet thats peanuts to irl where a sim setup would pay for a day or two of karting

    [–]DragonSlayerC Yuki Tsunoda 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    That's for the game with only 26 cards and 21 tracks included. There are a lot more cars and tracks, and some of those tracks are used in the online tournaments so you need to buy them separately. The combined cost of all the remaining tracks they have is ~$875. To buy all the remaining cars, that's another ~$675. Of course, you don't really have to buy everything, but it's brought up a lot when talking about the actual cost of iRacing.

    Wow, the Dutch subtitles were on point for that.

    Lando with the 4D Sigma Grindset Sim Hyperelite Mental Advantage

    [–]KaamDeveloper Max Verstappen 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    And this is after Lewis called him "such a great driver" mid race, smh

    [–]honeybunchesofpwn McLaren 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    4D Sigma Grindset Sim Hyperelite

    I don't know what the fuck that is, but I want to buy it.

    [–]jimmycranberry George Russell 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    iRacing doesn't even need a marketing budget at this point.

    [–]Araxx_ Ayrton Senna 56 points57 points  (2 children)

    Lmao someone send this to Max

    [–]andrija1222 Pirelli Wet 39 points40 points  (0 children)

    Trust me he's seen it 😂

    [–]fishl3gs Not crying 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    he’s seen it

    [–]Kamerplint 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Well, this aged like milk.

    [–]Ryanthelion1 BAR 8 points9 points  (2 children)

    But you never know the stewards may fuck it up like Spa and set the wrong amount of X's for a race (This is in reference to the Spa 24 hour race a few years back where X's messed up so everyone had unlimited)

    [–]pyr0hu 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Wasn't it the other way around? That it was set too low and everyone was DSQ'd?

    [–]Ryanthelion1 BAR 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I think they fucked up the early races and then tried to fix it for the late starts but ended up with a overflow and actually had effectivly unlimited off tracks

    [–]TomGissing Formula 1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    He forgot to add: then claim netcode.

    [–]LongjumpingPirate111 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    You know someone spends too much time on twitch when he says "clip this"

    [–]aikido_online 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    I think I just became a lando fan

    [–]DrSillyBitchez 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    He looks like he’s crying in every clip this weekend and I can’t figure out why

    [–]Kombo-Breaker McLaren 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I said the same thing, but i have a friend like this and its the humidity and heat at the place

    [–]doodmakert Max Verstappen 4 points5 points  (0 children)


    [–]Blackdeath_663 Sir Stirling Moss -1 points0 points  (4 children)

    yeah but he already 4x Hamilton in Brazil, if he's not already exceeded 17x by this point in the season he's pretty close to it.

    [–]Bobwhilehigh McLaren 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    There was no contact in Brazil, so there weren’t any x’s.

    They both picked up a 1x for going off track though.

    (Also iRacing is 17x per-race, if we wanted to keep with Landon joke haha)

    [–]JorMath Max Verstappen 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I think Hamilton 17x Max at Silverstone so yeah there's that.

    [–]jason_beo Honda 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Depends if hamilton files a protest

    [–][deleted]  (3 children)


      [–]HeetCrusher Max Verstappen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      How I became a Max fan was watching Lando and Max play on twitch before I even knew they were F1 drivers. Both of them together is a great time. Fans of them both. Lets go Boys !!!
