I was able to play this today and I had some questions/clarifications that came up: 1) For determining First Player do you use your NPC controlled cars as well as your actual player cars? I ruled that you do.
2) What happens when determining First Player and a neutral car is the lead car?
3) If your car had used soft tires when you Pit could you change tires to new soft tires?
Thanks for the answers. It was a fun game. It seemed to move faster than TA.

1: I think the intention is the first team car. No NPCs. This interpretation also resolves issue 2.

3: I'd play that soft tires get refreshed if you pit and don't change tire types. (Obviously you still need to switch to/from hard tires at least once during the game.)

Aaron is correct on both counts

You only get to use the Soft Tires bonus ONCE? I thought the Soft Tires chit would flip back over during the end of the turn.

The bonus is only once per set of tires. This is thematic--the advantage of soft tires in F1 usually lasts 2-3 laps at most, then the car is already dealing with tires that are going off. (It can be a little more this year since there are something like 5 tires, three of which are at each race, so the softest at one track can actually be what was the hardest at another.)

If it were once per turn, there wouldn't need to be mention of flipping the counter--it could just be used (with wear marker) any time the car activates.

Thanks for clarifying.
