Furthermore it is a competition on a game, certainly realistic, but in no case is the reality.

7.10. It is allowed to unlap.
7.11. In case of disconnection, the driver will ever appearance of a blue flag. Admins ask him to act with caution and in case of doubt not too much to resist. In all cases it is advisable to keep informed through a third of its current position in the race.
