[li]Qualifying starts at 7:30pm  (UK time) - followed by the race[/li]
[li]Session host is Macca[/li]
[/ul]

Fact File: Driver of the day at Australia was F1Racer09, a brilliant 1 stop strategy saw him climb from 11th to 2nd on the podium. 
[ul]
[li]F1Racer09 is our biggest climber in the drivers championship over the last 3 rounds, before round 7 he was in 19th place, he now finds himself inside the Top 10 at 9th place.[/li]
[li]Michemery currently equals the record for consecutive wins at 3.[/li]
[li]Manor have only failed to have both drivers in the points at 1 occasion so far, when both drivers have raced. The best of any other team.[/li]
[/ul]
Pre-Race Questions: 
[ol]
[li]Pole man last season was xdearagony with a 40.5. Practice sessions have already shown drivers will smash that time this season, what time do you think the pole sitter will get?[/li]
[li]Last season at Singapore Jume won the race, and 10th place found himself 1min41seconds of the leader - which is nearly an entire lap. Will we see the Top10 cars separated by less than 40seconds? If no how much?[/li]
[li]With a move to strict rules, which drivers do you think will benefit if any? and which drivers do you think might struggle? [/li]

I think if a driver wants pole he will need to be aiming for a 39.6, as i think with the new strict regulations drivers might beat that time but due to a wheel outside the limits there lap will be invalidated.

No, simply because some drivers can't seem to keep their car on the track xD, if everyone drives the first few laps calmly, it could be a very close race - This never seems to happen, which is a bit disappointing given the potential the races have. I also think driver errors will cause the field to be spread out.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Liam will benefit, i doubt he will ever get a penalty, and drivers like myself usually pick up 3-6second penalties. So Liam could find himself benefiting quite a lot. I think Michemery will struggle, as when im following him his car is sliding everywhere ;). Jokes aside i dont think anyone will struggle - all the drivers in the league have the car control to keep it in the limits, whether they do is a different matter though.[/font]

1. Pole man last season was xdearagony with a 40.5. Practice sessions have already shown drivers will smash that time this season, what time do you think the pole sitter will get?
Honestly I think the pole sitter will get a quick time! That quick no one else will be able to beat it (39.7)


2. Last season at Singapore Jume won the race, and 10th place found himself 1min41seconds of the leader - which is nearly an entire lap. Will we see the Top10 cars separated by less than 40seconds? If no how much?
No it will be more than 40seconds I think the gap will be 1.05.567

3. With a move to strict rules, which drivers do you think will benefit if any? and which drivers do you think might struggle?
This is a big prediction but I think the drivers that don't get any penalties will benefit the most. I think the people who have been driving lawnmowers the last few races will struggle

wont be hard to beat that time as i know best that wasnt a flawless lap and got more or less lucky other drivers did worse then me really outperforming. so i think a mid 39 should be possible.

Last season at Singapore Jume won the race, and 10th place found himself 1min41seconds of the leader - which is nearly an entire lap. Will we see the Top10 cars separated by less than 40seconds? If no how much?

street circuit with a bit more playing room then monaco. wich makes this track more dangerous cause people will try alot more. id think it will be a chaotic race with 1 or 2 SC

With a move to strict rules, which drivers do you think will benefit if any? and which drivers do you think might struggle?

 think everyone can adapt to it. but maybe some people will drive overly carefull to avoid penalties. so in such way maybe some people might struggle

1. I think that the Top5 of Saturdays qualifying will beat last season pole time. The grid improved a lot since then but you never know. People might be more careful with strict rules and the danger, to extend the track is very easy in singapore. Especially at T1 and S3.

2. I'm sure we will see at least one SC. There are also 3 or more strategys possible. Really difficult to answer that but I'll say that 10th place will be 60sec behind the winner.

3. driver with agressive driving style have to be more careful now. So they might lose a bit time at the start of the race. Also, people might stop to divebomb now which coulf improve our races. All in all I'm happy with the change to strict. It does mean a lot more now when you're on pole

1:39.9, no idea who though.

Bwoah

The grid will be exactly the same, just with slower times. It shouldn't be a problem for me because I race in other leagues with Strict rules.

I think it will be 1.39.8.

3. I don't think so, because the level in this championship is really high and the gap between the first and the tenth is only half a second.
With a move to strict rules, which drivers do you think will benefit if any? and which drivers do you think might struggle? I think it doesn't benefit anyone because we all know how to drive well and changing the driving style to adapting to strict.

1. It will be a 1:39,5xx.
2. It is difficult to say. Rain, SC, crashes, wing damage... I do not think so
3. The grid order won't change I think and the times will be the same

1. A 1.39.6 ish
2. Singapore is the longest race of the season so unless we have a safety car near the end I'm finding it hard to imagine it being that close so no.
3. I think Liam and other drivers with a smooth driving style could really benefit from a switch to strict rules. For drivers that struggle... I think I could be one of them. I tend to get at least a couple of penalties with strict rules

Q - P17 
Mistake on my first lap, car leaving the pit at unfortunate time on my 2nd lap and having an awful 3rd lap meant I was 1.6seconds slower than a time I just in practice about 20minutes earlier 

R - P14
Knew I needed to get a good start and was hoping to jump Killer who started P12 on the S tyres. Got ahead of a few cars including killer at the start but then he pulled a really nice overtake on my halfway round the lap. Few laps later the VSC came out and on the restart I passed 4Chicks. After that I just had a train behind me as I wasn't quick on the SS at all. Pitted lap 12 for US and a couple of laps later the SC come out which messed my 2 stop strategy up. Pitted lap 23 for US and ended up in a nice battle with Jume and Agony pitted agin lap 29 to try for the fastest lap of the race but didn't happen.

Not the best result but before yesterday I had never used medium TC only ever used full TC by deicded to give it ago only did about 30laps practicing and had never raced with another car using it but I decided to use it for the race and never once touched the wall, half spun or made contact with another car so given that I'll take that.

Congrats to Carre on his win Mich on his podium and the new guy Deki on a very impressive 2nd place. See you all next week in Monza
