Some people may consider these types of driving lines as unfair, or even cheating. However, the only cheat checking employed by this site, and all other hotlap sites that I know of, is the game's in-built 'Cut Track Warning' system.
Basically if the game itself allows the lap to be counted then it is considered to be a valid lap. Any attempt to introduce any other form of checking would be very time consuming and open to possible differences of interpretation as to what constitutes a valid lap.
Ryan, and Dan, are just stretching the possibilities to the maximum. I'm sure that if either one of them had tried to take a few centimetres extra over those kerbs then the game would have called them on it.
