In case of digression of this rule, if you make a return to the pit via a reflex teleportation or if your car is totally blocked and you are unable to reach the pits by road you must then wait 15min in the pit before being able to restart on the track.
If abuse of the reflex excuse is used and observed several times and after a warnings from the race steward on the same driver/team during the championship, the race steward reserves the right to impose a penalty of 30s which will be applied on your final time for non respect and digression of the rule 3.5 of the regulation.
