Pre-Race Interview:
1) How was your race last week at Silverstone? Not Bad !! I spun on the first lap just behind Zephyr and Falco , just got a bit too excited since i was able to follow them and went too early on the throttle . i made just one stop , I started on Super soft and pitted for softs on lap 10 and manage o go to the end
2) This week we are in Hungary, what are your opinions of this place? It's a bit of a strange track for me but I think It's ok
3) Prost said that Mclaren joining Renault will put pressure on the Renault team.  Where do you think Mclaren will be on the grid next year?Hard to tell but McLaren always have a good chassis so we'll have to wait and see  what the Renault engine will bring them

1) How was your race last week at Silverstone?
I was in New York. It's a shame because that's my favourite track of all time (the great Circuit Gilles Villenueve is second).
2) This week we are in Hungary, what are your opinions of this place?
It has long corners that also have elevation changes, so I think it's very challenging. You need to have the right momentum to get out of corners quickly, like in Montreal.
3) Prost said that Mclaren joining Renault will put pressure on the Renault team.  Where do you think Mclaren will be on the grid next year?
I hope the field will be much closer overall next year: Force India won a lot of money with their 4th place, Sauber has the Alfa Romeo money, Renault are always improving and now have one of the best driver pairings, and hopefully Ferrari and Vettel will learn from their mistakes to challenge for the championship again. Hopefully McLaren's chassis is as good as they keep claiming it is so they can make a proper step forward and challenge for 4th in the constructors' at the very least. The Honda partnership has wasted too many years for Alonso and Vandoorne.

I better get those points for Haas, then.

I also wanted to say that I got my new hard drive a few days ago, so I can comfortably record my races now without running out of hard drive space.

It was alright, had the pace, but between speeding in the pit lane and game crashing fell back the order a bit.

Depends on the day really, sometimes it feels like the car can just flow through the corners, other days it feels like I am trying to tow a UHaul trailer behind me, hopefully it will be a good day today!

Not sure, but would be great to see them battle the likes of Red Bull.

What a fantastic race! Most fun I've had this season! :mrgreen:  I've never made a race recap, but I feel like I should this time.

Started off with a decent second qualifying run for 9th place (2nd run starts at 9:15). (Race starts at 19:10)Then I had a fun battle with FruitSalsa at the end of the first lap and half of the second. I was then able to hold off Bobino with the help of my teammate Deadzero. Then I was alone for a while until Sucuri caught up at then end of lap 21, and there was no way I could hold him off very long. I was able to hold him off until the end of lap 22 which is when I pit for SS. I then caught up to Falco at the end of lap 26, but then had to let Dark and Nick by for blue flag. Falco also had to let them by, so I was able to stay with him and we had a great battle at the beginning of lap 28. After I passed Falco, I tried to hold him up for a few laps so Deadzero could catch up and pass him, but he spun at the end of lap 30, so we ditched that strat and I just tried to pull out a gap from there. By then my SS were worn, so I couldn't get a big gap and Falco almost got me by then end of the race, but I was able to stay ahead for 7th place.

For some reason, the Nvidia recording software made my voice very quiet.

You made that Red Bull quite wide! I never really appreciated how differently the car handles when following close behind, my rears were quite snappy following you through that S2.

After calming down from having a bad game freeze, I see this race as the most fun thus far as well. It was certainly the most chasing I have ever done in an F1 game!

Our battle in the second lap was indeed a lot of fun! Great job on your 7th!

Set a good qualifying lap for P5. Held my position at the start, and had good fights with Tron during the first and second stints. Crossed the line in 4th, but finished in 6th because I cut the track like a real Formula 1 driver. I'm still trying to figure out camera and wheel settings for my new wheel.
I was going to record audio commentary but my video editor crashed multiple times (it's that awful). Maybe next race.
For the break, I won't be available Wednesday, December 27 because I'm needed at work.
