Yeah .. it depends on how the track is configured. It starts recording once you pass the "start" point - where ever that is on the map. Some pits will put you on the track after the start so it won't register until you pass the start again (2nd lap).
If you hit the manual record, you have gps data and video for that - it just won't give you a correct lap time.
