Maybe. I just don't see an outweighing benefit of all the work they (the stewards and race directors) are putting into this. Particularily at RedBull where 4 out of 8 corners can be driven explicitly wide without penalty. You have 30 cars to watch for 40 laps, in 4 tiers, on 3 platforms. Imagine the total effort needed to sheriff all that in real-time. Plus processing all the complaints after.As soon as you go down that route, you open the door for "This extension on needs to be allowed, you did it for the Red bull ring" over and over and over again. You also make the stewards job harder, not easier, by adding more things to remember ( is this extend allowed or not ). It's far easier to govern properly to have 1 set of rules for all tracks, and it's not like you can't see where the lines are
Contrary to what you're saying, going 100% with game rules would be by far the easiest way. Especially when the inbuilt penalty system now in 4.0 is really good ("near enough identical to our ruling").
Anyway it's too late to change this for GT3 S9. Just offering an alternative perspective for future.
