1. How was your race in Brasil?

Suprisingly really good. I honestly didn't think I would have qualifying pace here, and it can be tough to pass but I put in a good lap. Scruffy first couple laps as I got used to the heavy car yet again but after that it was a good drive and my tire strategy worked.

2. We are going to Baku. How do you like this track?

Baku is OK. Sure the real life race was very boring here, but it's not bad to drive. Sector 1 is borderline boring to drive, and the home straight is very long but the castle section is interesting.

3. Last race of the Season 10. Tell us your thoughts about Season 10.

Rollercoaster year for me. An OK start with some decent finishes, then 2 promising races in a row with computer crashes and 0 points! Follow that with a disastrous race at Red bull ring and I was disheartened.
Then magic happened in the rain at Malaysia and I won my first race! It has all come together since then, and have been fighting for the front. Tron is not an easy man to catch! Down to the last race, and it's a must win for me. It has been a great fight, and I will not be disappointed no matter the result.

Pre Race Interview
1. How was your race in Brasil?
- Not to good. I have been away for quite awhile with no practice. Heck, it took me 45 minutes just to completely update my computer before I could start practicing a day before the race.
2. We are going to Baku. How do you like this track?
- This track is VERY tricky. Just when you think all is going good and you have established a decent pace, you can easily catch your front end on the wall of a sharp corner, or hit the wall hard enough to put you out of the race for good. I think the key to this track is just good old consistent driving and not trying to hard to go super fast lap after lap. I think if a driver tries this he will eventually end up in the pits or the garage.
3. Last race of the Season 10. Tell us your thoughts about Season 10.
- It was fun in the beginning, however, when I was forced to stop playing due to health issues, and then come back without any practice, this presented some big problems. I have a partner that I can count on now. I'm sure that Belmag had good reason not to finish out the season, but it did blindside me big time. My absence was not foreseen in any way, so I would not have been able to give my partner a heads up anyway if I had one at the time. However, it is great to be back, and I do not foresee any issues in the future that will keep me from the track. Famous last words, LOL

Pre Race Interview
1. How was your race in Brasil?
I thought it was pretty good. I had my best qualifying of the season and then put together a decent, consistent race. We had more racers, so I was happy to finish in the middle. I can't believe I got a frame perfect pit entry. I'm still making mistakes here and there, but I'm improving.
2. We are going to Baku. How do you like this track?
This track scares me a little (as do all of the street circuits with walls everywhere). The full-throttle left-right before the long straight and the castle section are cool, but the rest isn't very spectacular.
3. Last race of the Season 10. Tell us your thoughts about Season 10.
I've really enjoyed it since I joined. It's surprising to me how consistent I've been. I've had 3 6th place finishes, a 5th, 7th, and 8th. I'm not fast enough to fight for wins, but I'm solidly in the midfield. I was worried I would be too slow and always be trundling around at the back, but there are a good number of racers at a similar skill level as me. Since this is the first time I've ever done online racing, my main goal has been to make it to the end of races and not ruin anyone else's race. So far I've been really successful with that.

1. How was your race in Brasil? Awful, i was taken out 3 times by different drivers and made numerous mistakes that i would care to not comment on.
2. We are going to Baku. How do you like this track? I'm indifferent, i know im fast on this track so it would be interesting to see what will happened with everyone else
3. Last race of the Season 10. Tell us your thoughts about Season 10. I joined about halfway through the season and there have definitely been some highs and lows, but overall i think its been a good season, especially with the championship coming down to this last race

My view of the race. Apologies again for starting prematurly, totally my fault. Great race at the start between me and gunner, amazed my car didnt give up on me and crash out, but great race overall.

This is my race in Baku.  I was so close to a podium!  Below are the times of some highlights.
The race starts at 2:04, where I almost spin at the first corner (I'm sorry L'Acadien for braking a bit early).  Bobino starts closing on me at 5:44, he gets past me at 7:32, I pit at 14:45 (going for the one-stop) and Bobino is still just in front of me, but I get past him when he hits the wall in the Castle section at 16:03.  At 16:17, I make an amazing editing cut.  At 16:28 Gunner retires and soon I pass his limping car.  I make a mistake at 18:03 that gives minor damage to my front wing.  I pass Plasma at 20:41 and then we battle for two laps.  During which, I tap the wall on the final left-right 3 laps in a row.  I can't believe I didn't suffer any damage.  At 27:55 I make another mistake a lose a little more wing.  During that lap I debate about pitting.  I decide to and at 29:54 something weird happens on the mini-map that allows me to stay in front of V6.  At 31:46 I pass Tron, who is in the pits and it looks like I could get a podium.  Last lap at 35:20.  I miss out on a podium because of corner cutting.

That was a nice battle with you for a couple laps and it is nice to see your perspective.  We had some close calls.  I was suffering some minor wing damage that was giving me oversteer and affecting my braking.

Yea, was definitely a good race, was a little upset that one time you squeezed me but nothing was going to come out of it anyways so no hard feelings
