I would suggest a bonus point for fastest lap.... Choices say it all!
Here are choice details:
Yes, for everyone!: No matter what you finish (even without scoring points), you are still guaranteed for a bonus point, which was the 1950s FL rule.
Yes, for top 10: Does not allow other than top 10 to be guaranteed for a bonus point...
No: Keep disallowing the FL bonus.
I don't want to answer!: Skip this poll..

Now, most say the top 10, followed by the 1950s FL layout, saying "no", and lastly, IDK.

I would say only top 10 so someone in 20th couldn’t pit late for SS and use all their boost in one lap just for fast lap.

I agree, only top ten.

I don't see how this enhances the game. It's not real F1 and iGP isn't a driving game so why do we need it? If implemented it's going to further encourage people to hang on to boost for the final lap.

If it's top 10 only it won't prevent people who have no chance of finishing in the top 10 from saving boost and pitting on the penultimate lap to fit SS just to prevent one of the top 10 from getting the fastest lap point.

Why should they be helped? Nobody's fault if they are not good enough.

i know but a majority are active players and doing crap for a while or being relagated could make them quit

This idea has been posited many times and been rejected by mods/devs every time.  Not saying it won't ever happen, but, it may be a very very long time before it is going to be seriously considered in my opinion.

I don’t mind the idea, though think it should be top 10, as anyone lower could then just pit for SS later on without losing any points. Keeping it top ten is likely to mean it has to happen on the tyres they’re on.
I don’t get the whole “it’s not real F1”. Everyone knows it’s not real, however I think it’s pretty obvious it’s based on it. The rest of the points are the same as F1, the tracks are the same, the cars are modelled on them, why not have fastest lap as well.
I get the not wanting people to keep kers until the last lap, but personally don’t think it will change that too much. If you’re fighting for the top points, that’s going to be more important than the fastest lap

**EDIT**
Interested to know how being able to put a hat on your driver enhanced the game 🤔🤪

That iGP not being F1 business is there to make clear that just because F1 does something or not is not seen as a point pro or contra a suggestion. If F1 suddenly decides their cars are required to be able to carry a cage of goats non-stop a distance equal from Monaco to Barcelona it's all fine and good for them, but what's important to me is if doing something similar in iGP adds to and/or damages the game play. 

In this case I don't really see the benefit of it, how it would add to the skill based managing. It's just another point to make sure to have a fast last lap beside the battle for position with a bunch of problems like having to be limited to top 10 to avoid that racing out of points turns into a meaningless waiting and preparing to do a quick last lap. Even then, if a car ends up ahead a pit stop delta plus a couple seconds of the next (not own team) car and the one ahead is out of reach that manager would be stupid not to a ridiculous extra pit stop just to go for that fastest lap. Also even holding back boost might harm those doing it, this suggestion is still encouraging it and being a trap or not, no matter who, if someone falls for it, it'd hurt the competition. For what gain?

ps: Hats cost token, some of them get bought by real money, this real money can be spent on servers or other development areas, or, at least after recovering its costs, adding manpower to the same area.

I totally agree with you. IGP it’s not a driving game, BUT it’s a game based on strategy. Instead of points for fastest lap or pole position I’d prefer tokens prize for the top 3 in the championship.

🤣🤣🤣because we need more of that eh!

However,  there's no incentive in using your boost either.  

Personally I have no issues with players saving their boost for last or any lap. That in its own takes skill and discipline. Some have it and some dont....
