Description:
It's happened 4 races in a row now, don't think it really needs a penalty at this stage, it hasn't always been the same drivers, so it would seem unfair to single out these 3 for this one race, however there just needs to be a general warning as we're told about it every race, but people consistently keep typing in the in-game chat when they have crossed the line, no matter if there are still people racing behind.

The last2 races I've been involved in close battles right up to the final lap, and it can be very distracting.

Evidence: I took screenshots from @Steve Allan s stream, where there are people chatting while you can still clearly see the race is ongoing for some members of the field

Nothing really to say. I guess I got carried away after finishing the race and completely forgot about the rest of the guys still going.

Same for me as @Billamy and @tomi0810. I just got carried away since I had some very good and fun laps which make this one of the very few good races in this season. Even though I got killed in the first lap as usual, I had a very intense fight with @tomi0810 for the last few rounds and was totally stoked as you can see by the capital letters. I couldn't hold back and didn't think twice.
It won't happen again.

@morphee7 absolutely. Would be unfair to call out these guys only, when others have done it previous races.

Just think a general warning should be issued to everyone in the league.
