This. It's frustrating as hell because it doesn't feel like I'm racing. Plus the fact that I suspect I might be somewhat hopeless in MP as I'm usually last or second last.
The first corner in a mp race is usually madness. If I was first on the grid I used to swing wide to get a smooth apex and get on the power early. But you soon learn if you do that you'll have 7 other cars up the inside doing 200mph without brakes lol. My tactics now are to survive the first corner without facing the fence.
