Unfortunately I won't make it again either. I'm sorry that I didn't realize that my summer would become so hectic and make me so inconsistent with attending.

I am out of town this week, but I did bring my steering wheel, so I should be able to race Wednesday night. I will attach the speed test I just took at the location I will race at. The download and upload speed should increase in the next day or 2, but the ping is already good enough, so I should be fine. I look forward to hopefully racing!  :mrgreen:

1) This week we are in the UK for the British GP. How do you like this track?
This track is a NOPE for me, don't like it, I can never master Turn 1 or Turns 12/13. Iconic track but pretty challenging

2) A few more classic cars have been released for F1 2017. Do you have a favorite?
I know nothing about classic cars other than James Hunt driving the McLaren, thanks to the movie Rush.

3) During the real F1 race there have been some instances lately with Team Orders and swapping cars. Have you encountered this with your teammate during our season?
No, just wish he was there. We try to stay out of each others way the few times we raced but my teammate has had bad luck with finishing the races due to things he couldn't control.

FOR T1 all you need to do is take it flat ;)

I really like the flow to this track and do enjoy it.  We are in the part of the calendar that has a lot of great classic tracks, even though this currently layout is not exactly classic but I like it!

2) A few more classic cars have been released for F1 2017.  Do you have a favorite?

I want to try the Senna Mclaren's for sure!

3) During the real F1 race there have been some instances lately with Team Orders and swapping cars.  Have you encountered this with your teammate during our season?
Dark and I have definitely used our communication to our advantage a few times this season, in addition to a last 2nd Slipstream to help giving him pole!  THE TALLY TOW FINALLY WORKED

The problem with T1 is knowing when to start your turn if you want to go flat out. Also in response to your answer of the 3rd question, you guys are sneaky deaky lol

Thats true, there isn't really a good marker, and high fuel really does complicate it.

I think me and Shea are some of the only ones who have used team orders so far this season. We used it in Austria when I came out of the pit right behind him and he was on old tires

I stand by my saying that this is the absolute worst track in the world! From now on, I will never attend a Silverstone race week ever again. NEVER!! Oh if I could swear on here, I'd tell you guys how I really feel about this track

HOW CAN U SAY SUCH THINGS!!!

This is my favorite track in F1 2016. It's so good. All different types of corners so having a balanced setup is important. Requires a lot of skill to make it through each lap consistently

My View of the race, gotta say was an exciting race.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQJnGnS7mJw&feature=youtu.be
Qualifying Starts: 3:30
Fastest Lap: 19:05
Race Starts: 25:46
Battle For 3rd: 27:04
Battle And Crash w/ La'Cadian and Darklol: 29:06
Battle For 4th And 1st Pitstop: 31:38
Battle For 11th w/ Shadowless: 33:08
Battle For 7th w/ La'Cadian: 34:40
Battle For 2nd w/ Darklol: 42:36
2nd Pitstop: 50:20
Battle For 3rd w/ Tron4949: 54:12
Final Lap: 1:06:47
Ill be honest if there's any race id say watch in full, it would be this one, there are very few moments where nothing is happening, whether im pushing to make an undercut/overcut work, or blocking one, to just having a battle or passing lap traffic, this race had something happening the whole time.

Ya this is the only track that doesn't make sense. That nonsense from turns 10 to 14. No other track in the world has this many turns in a row. Really dumb design, no wonder it won't be in F1 in 2018. Plus The unnecessarily slow pit lane plus the marker of where it starts is hard to see until you're beside it. Got a drive through because of it. It's impossible to stay consistent on this track.
