The reason why I want to do it here, is to have an open and constructive discussion on a very slippery topic.
During the years here in RSR we tried many different strategies, but unfortunately all of them had downsides. Rules might work for a while, until people fear them, but what we've seen is that after a while people tend to forget.
I really think we all know what should be a correct way of behaving on track, and rules can't do too much if people don't change their mindset.
I really think that any approach we will take is absolutely useless if some people will not change their way of driving.
Saying that, I think we have (a lot of)room for improvements, on our side, if we will get a better way to judge incidents.
Let's face it, incidents are part of racing, and everyone does mistakes or is sometimes thrown out by someone else's.
Maybe having a better strategy on how to judge incidents can help.
What I'm asking here is having your ideas.
Incidents are always different from each other, and sometimes, apart from the driver errors, there might be even software errors (lag or faulty netcode).
What I'm looking for is a procedure that can eventually be automated to judge incidents.
Maybe it will not be 100% correct in all cases, but at least, IMHO, it will be better than having us judging based on personal impressions or not judging at all.
I think that, apart from few incidents, in which it's pretty clear who's fault is it, in the most of the cases this is not true. There might always be different way of judging them having a very wide gray area in which it's very difficult to take decisions.
My idea is to create a clear procedure so that drivers can determine by themselves what is the penalty for the incident they have been involved.
Maybe we can create a skeleton of this procedure, test it for some races and eventually improve it during time.
