Was wondering as a suggestion if it would be an idea on the money and car level page to show a small q or capital Q next to the drivers name to indicate they have already qualified for the upcoming race.

I figure for anyone monitoring their rivals to assess car and finance levels, it may help indicate a little about a managers strategy for race day. For example, if they smoked the last race and you can see there money hasn't gone down to replace parts, yet they qualified, you could probably be confident they are likely to smoke again.

And why on earth should that be made easier ?

IMHO "stalking" should be made more difficult, not easier

Aye, only a suggestion but a fair point. Racers certainly higher up will want to keep as much info to themselves as possible. That’s that idea shut down in one post! 😂😂

I dont agree with the OP suggestion but to answer this, because why should the game reward people who can write scrapers? It isnt a level playing field, if you wanted to monitor key managers yourself you have to invest a lot of time - for a good reward, but right now tech savvy managers or those in teams who have extensive toolsets can gain an advantage.

I would say its not that important in Ama, a little in pro but better to focus on setting your own targets and meeting them, if your success or failure is entirely dependent on the other guy doing what you anticipate then you're playing risky. Meh, I guess every advantage is "an" advantage, but the time spent spying could be spent elsewhere in GPRO

Not saying I am spying, and agree, it bares no relevance to lower leagues where there is plenty to learn over what others are doing. Thats fine though, was only a suggestion amongst millions of other crap suggestions on this forum

I don't think I really get it. Like this?

I would rather show my tyre compounds every race than my finance balance. Once every season (end or start) should be enough to show the money.

not quite. I meant in the money section, an additional marker to show whether the driver has qualified or not for the upcoming race. if they haven't qualified, that could indicate they still need to spend to upgrade if they smoked the previous race or if they don't spend, may indicate they are likely to smoke again because they are trying to avoid promotion or re-sign their driver.

By building a picture of your competitors, you know where you stand in relation to your own strategy and how to subsequently manage it.

Some may say its stalking but in all honesty I say its taking everything in consideration throughout the season, trying to grasp what your rivals plans might be etc all so you can plan your own approach around it.

Marcelo Bielsa is a perfect example of researching everything down to the finer detail and he's regarding as a godfather within the football coaching world.

What ive suggested isn't exactly making the game easier, maybe it points people towards thinking about more than just what they themselves are doing which is important in the long run.

Spying is overrated. You should optimise your own package, not react to every little thing you see someone else do.

David, if you go to the Q1 and Q2 standings it clearly shows everyone that has and has not qualified. You could put your Bielsa hat on and divulge that information next to having a tab open with the money balances. I think your intentions are good and true, but you have to be prepared aswell to put the work in yourself for things like that, rather than the game giving you a clear pointer. Good managers already monitor their rivals. Why should lives me made easier for lazy managers when good managers are already doing what isn't on a plate for them? Please don't take the critcism the wrong way, but I don't think things like this should me made 'easy'.

Best of luck for the season:)

I think it would be nice if we can get the numerical value of PHA for each track on the season calendar list.
Something like https://ibb.co/jyNhKy4

That weird moment when you realise that your suggestion already exists (kinda) and you just didn't know about it ....

I think that's pretty common actually. Would even suggest to change those buttons to... red... vivid red, or fuchsia. And blinking.

Kidding!! I "don't" want to change the game that "much". But the weather icons could blink and show an alert sign. :-D

One thing missing although more of an annoyance or cosmetic more than anything.

Is there scope to add a "back to top" button on forum topics? So that we can jump back to the top of the page if we so wish?

I use Opera as a browser.
Clicking on the tab takes you directly to the top of the page no matter what site you are browsing.
Clicking again takes you back where you were before you go to the top

Yeah I suppose there are some browsers that already have a similar function but may not work so well on mobile devices.

Was just a thought but as I say its probably more just cosmetic/a minor annoyance.
