1. I think Season 15 has been mixed, but for the most part when i have battled with drivers it has been very clean, i have only had one incident where i felt another driver wronged me (Baku). I think the competitiveness of this season is higher than ever, which is why i think at the front there have been quite a few cases of damaged wings.

2. Deki will win, unless michaelangelo pulls of a miracle comeback - i dont think carre has what it takes to beat deki, he needs to driver more aggressive i think against deki. As we saw in Austria deki can keep carre back even though carre had fresher tyres and were a softer compound. 2nd and 3rd, i think neyo will be 2nd and carre 3rd. Its so hard to choose, i think MichaelAngelo is too far behind to catch these 3. I think my teammate would be in with a shout if he had been here from the start.

3. I dont think dirty air will impact the race tbh, i think it will affect the amount of overtakes, but it just makes drivers try harder - more mistakes, more crashes, more desperate overtakes. It will be an interesting race, i hope i can race this weekend - i really need to end an awful run of races.

1. 50-50 for me. My wing got destroyed 4x in the last 7 races, which is so annoying & cost me a lot of points. Austria was disguting. Falcon caused so much trouble & chaos. He was wayyy to agressive which ended in a divebomb of death into T2. Result = my & his wing were destroyed. I really hope he calmes down a bit. He is so fast, he's better than that.

2. It will be Deki vs Carre for the title. If I had to pick one,i would say Deki wins. He is more consistent & makes less mistakes. I hope they will fight till the last race in AbuDhabi.
1. Deki
2. Carre
3. Michemery

3. I think it will be a boring race. It's an easy 1 stop so u can't play with the strategy. I just hope I will survive the start without any damage & I hope to see a full grid. Driving against only 10 or 11 people is kind of boring

1. I think that is just normal in league racing that everyone tries to do everything to win and some drivers are just not doing it that intelligent as others atm what causes a lot of carnage which is kind of a shame.

2.I mean you can probably guess what I wish but I think I will battle it out with carre would be lovely to see a battle in Abu Dhabi 😁👊🏼
1.Deki hopefully
2.Carre
3.Angelo/Miche and neyo will hopefully battle it out would be nice

1. I don’t think there is a problem of people driving dirty, but I guess it might be different for people fighting for the top positions. Austria was very entertaining from my pov (probably cause I wasnt in that fight), but maybe that shouldnt happen in league racing.

2. I have to say Deki, but I hope someone will challenge him, but deki probably has to have some bad luck and incidents to not win the championship.
1.deki
2.carre
3.neyo

3. I really like the track, but my pace is horrible in Britain and there’s a big chance of me crashing out in Maggots and Beckets all by myself. But hopefully there will be a bigger grid than last few races, so that would make it more interesting at least. But I think there will be some good racing as always

1) It was just unfortunate. Me being the only one that retired at that point was angry at the time and frustrated, but looking back at it it was just rather unlucky.

2) Some drivers do have to be more, not mentioning names but a lot slow down on their out-laps but stay on the racing line. I haven't had any issues, I don't know if anyone has had any issues with me during qualy, but from what I've seen in replays, there are a few who do need to be more aware.

3) I honestly don't know how it is going to play out. Obviously with it being the first time we have done full qualifying, it is always hard to predict so I don't have a clue. All I know is I won't be on pole!

1. Season 15 is struggling to please all the drivers, with some drivers not having complaints about the racing, whilst others are having more complaints about it being too dirty. Where is your stand point?

With attending just at two races this season and doing like, I don't know, 10-20 laps, I don't know how racing was this season. Ah I remember Haribo being very aggressive in Spain as he overtook me while seeing I'm miles slower than him, that was weird.

2. Round 10, we are halfway through the season after this race, it seems a sensible time to make your predictions - Who will win the drivers championship and who will finish 2nd and 3rd overall?

I'm pretty sure Deki will do it if he doesn't miss to many races, it's on him winning or loosing the title, he has all for it. I don't know much about the new people so, I can't say much more. Carre, Mich and Ne-yo will fight for the places at the front.
Wanted to add that I'm very very impressed of Yhyy, seeing them results! To be competitve in this Division isn't easy with all the top class people, he made a very huge step and I think it's time for him for his first podium ;) (does he has one already?!)
Also, before the season I said the people should watch out for Smithy. He's struggling at the moment, don't know how his speed was the last few races, but he needs just one good result, one motivation boost, and he's back at the top, the people underestimate him at the moment I think.

3. Practice has already revealed that dirty air could be a problem in the race, do you think this will be an interesting race or not?
Having my comeback race here (haha), I just want to finish the race (if I'm there this Saturday..) and maybe not finishing last, would be great.

1.I think something like this shouldn´t have happened, as some people just didn´t brake and drove into someone else, which resulted in varying endings.
2. All in all quali went quit good, people moved out of the way when they needed to and didn´t really held up people, I only had a little accident, that someone spun out and decided to rejoin a bit in front of me to do his flying lap, which resulted in him holding me up.
3. I don´t think it will be tight to get to q3, as the top 5 has quite a big gap to the rest. the only thing that could make it interesting would be rain, but because of the full quali you have more time to get used to the weather conditions. The only thing I know for sure is, that if it is a dry quali  will have loads of time to do nothing.

1. It was a mess but nobody meant it to happen. I was  very cautious through the turn and didn't really react to the 2nd part of the incident. It will be very interesting to see how it pans out around t1 this race. It's obviously super quick and I can see turn 3 and 4 causing issues too. Hopefully everyone will take a cautious approach. 

2. Never had an issue with quali really. I can see sometimes people mess up. I wish the game had the ability to highlight who is on their hot lap and who isn't. In Austria army didn't look like he was but I had to move out the way just incase.

3. Depends what you mean by quick. There's a slim chance people could do a lot of invalidated laps. I'm hoping to sneak into q3.

1. I agree with Xjari. This really shouldn't happen as I think people need to be more aware, particularly on the first lap, that when you're close behind a car, you should brake earlier since you don't know when the car in front will brake. It is very easy to slam into someone in-front in the braking zones when people take different lines that will require different braking points.

2. Qualifying was fine and uneventful in Austria for me. Also, I agree with oldskool that it would be much better to have an indication of people who are not on their outlaps. Maybe next year's game?

3. I don't think any of the top 5/6 will be knocked out in Q2. This seems very unlikely unless someone crashes out. Even with lots of invalidated laps, there is plenty of time in Q2 to set a relatively good lap time. Anyway, it's the first time we're doing full qualifying so I hope it'll be a lot of fun! It will be quite boring for those who are knocked out in Q1 and have to wait though... so I don't think it should be like this every race.

When you have so many drivers battling it out for the race win and / or other positions in such close pace and gaps, you will always have accidents occuring. In Baku we had 8/9 drivers very close to each other and Falcon crashed out making contact with Michemery which leads to my other point. Some drivers need to watch out more than others as they have proved they're not the cleanest when it comes to close racing. Britain is a track where closer racing will be promoted from Silverstone's layout. 

2. Round 10, we are halfway through the season after this race, it seems a sensible time to make your predictions - Who will win the drivers championship and who will finish 2nd and 3rd overall?
1. Michemery
2. ne-yo1993
3. deki106

3. Practice has already revealed that dirty air could be a problem in the race, do you think this will be an interesting race or not?
I don't think that with 10 drivers being so close to pace we will have a boring race. I honestly never thought that in this game dirty air can affect you so much to destroy a battle. It will be an interesting race i can guarantee you that. Good luck everyone.

What were your thoughts on the lap 1 mayhem that unfolded in Austria?

Stuff like that happens in F1 look at David Coulthard in Spa that massive crash.


There has been a lot of unhappy drivers during qualifying. Have you experienced any trouble during qualifying? Are there any drivers that you think should be more aware?

Everyone should be more aware, it may make you a lot slower like me but I never have any issues so up to you.

We'll be having full qualifying this round. Do you think it will be tight to get to Q3? Will any of the quicker drivers get knocked out in Q2?

Think may surprise people and get them off guard, so I could get pole.

Bwoah

Carre will win, Deki second and me third. It will be very close though, especially if Carre isn't consistent. Neyo is also in the mix.

3. Practice has already revealed that dirty air could be a problem in the race, do you think this will be an interesting race or not?
Yes it will be, but drivers will have to be clever with their overtakes.

Thumbnail is my Sauber not a London bus.

Fun Full quali getting to recorded others as much as I could hope some highlights can be captured for others. It would have been better for me if not the schoolboy error of running out of fuel in the first quali.
Great teammate last lap qualifying in quali 2 to move to 4th and into 3rd quali.

For the Race I got speeding into the pit so had to go to get a stop-go but too fast going in then too so had to rinse and repeat and dry setup on a wet track meant I was too slow tried to keep with Fab but couldn't and my mistakes. Roll on 16th the day after my 36th birthday maybe I'll get skills for my birthday as a present.

Jokes at my expense aside, it was great seeing lots in the lobbies again hope we continue to grow to a 3rd and 4th divisions one day. Don't mind if I go to division 4 as long as we are all just having fun rivalries and fun in general :).
