Last time I heard of it it was pushed to February, and then that is postponed too...I wonder if that is still a planned feature since there is no update about it for awhile now.

I really owe everyone an update on this. Basically, we lost two key developers when the war in Ukraine broke out (one in Ukraine, one in Russia). It had nothing to do with us and everything to do with the war. The Ukranian is now fighting for his country and the Russian is attempting to relocate to Europe, via a new job that can get him out of Russia. We had to let them go and have been doing what we can to help them. Unfortunately, their involvement was essential to 2/3 updates we were developing in my last blog. As you noted, what started as a slight delay turned in to work being stopped in its tracks, and this is why.

In the interim, I've been pursuing a deal to strengthen our position for the future, so we can just focus on development. This was going smoothly, until the rug was pulled out from under the global economy! That has created some delays for the other parties involved, and we're working to their timeline. We are navigating through this with them and all indications are that the deal I mentioned is still going ahead, pending some delays.

We've been working hard to ensure that the current situation is temporary, and that we will be back on track soon, with or without the deal. Adding the deal on top of of the work we've been doing will put us in a stronger position than we've ever been in. I would love to share every detail, but there isn't much more that I can add beyond what I've just said, for confidentiality reasons. What happened this year was not something we could plan for, it's just one of those situations you have to untangle as it unfolds.

At the moment Jack the game is pretty stable from what we've had in the past, minus a few teething problems with league rules. But for us in our League, we're seeing a new winner at the first five races of our season, with the Championship leader at race 4 not evening winning a single race yet. We're all very hyped for our current season to play out. Thank you for introducing the rules we were seeking and look forward to further customization in the future.

I do hope we can see some control and RNG in our car development and research is too powerful and presents too-accurate information. As soon as one team makes the run on development, other teams follow researching. Generally whoever develops second has the best car. We need a bit more vague information like "Team A appears to have the best acceleration, we're a close/distant"

With the RNG, we should see some variance in results dependant on hidden factors

But all-in-all thank you!

Jack, we understand the situation...it's sad. 
But the "wheel to wheel racing" update is very much important and awaited because it will give even more realism and credibility to iGP. 
When do you hope to activate it...?  Could you give an approximate time frame... 3 months...?  6 months...?  1 year...?  Or more...?
Please answer us in all transparency...
We trust you...!

I guess we'll have to wait a little longer
and for how long we still don't know

From what I read, I think no plan can be made while the deal won't be confirmed or not.
