1. How was your race in Australia? Did not attend was on vacation
2. We are going back to Montreal. How do you like this track? Im definitely a fan of canada, it can be tricky to get your setup just right for your racing style but it pays off if you get it right
3. Are you gonna buy F1 2017 on Pre-purchase or gonna wait to see how it will be before buying it? I will likely pre-purchase it, but im still not 100% sure

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1. How was your race in Australia? Not bad , I finished on the podium , but I could have done a bit better the safety car made me gamble on strategy[/font]
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]2. We are going back to Montreal. How do you like this track? I love this one , It's my favorite !! I live 15 min away from the track , I used to go roller-blading on the track[/font]

1. How was your race in Australia?

Not great as my video showed, but I got very lucky with the safety car and turned that into a good result.


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

I like it. Real fast, and also real easy to get caught cutting corners! I am hoping to have better pace here this time compared to last season.


3. Are you gonna buy F1 2017 on Pre-purchase or gonna wait to see how it will be before buying it?

I will definitely be waiting, if I buy at all. I love racing F1 cars, but iRacing is a black hole for money....

Pre Race Interview
1. How was your race in Australia?
My race didn't go very well.  I pit 3 times in the first 10 laps for broken wings.  The safety car kept me from being lapped early on.  I recovered enough to get through the race and I'm surprised I ended up in 6th.
2. We are going back to Montreal. How do you like this track?
I like this track much more than Australia.  I'm usually faster than the expert AI.  I don't know if the AI are slower on this track or if I'm actually faster.
3. Are you gonna buy F1 2017 on Pre-purchase or gonna wait to see how it will be before buying it?
I wasn't planning on getting it before.  I went from F1 2013 to F1 2016 and I thought I would wait a few years for an update.  But, if I continue with this league and we move on to F1 2017, then I will get it.

It went well, I took it down!

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]2. We are going back to Montreal. How do you like this track?[/font]
No.  I think sector 1 is pretty cool, mainly before T5 and after T3, it's very unique to all the other sections of F1 tracks but this is still the type of track I really don't like....chicane -> straight -> chicane -> straight rinse and repeat.  I don't find it to be a fun track at all and historically I have never been able to set a car up here so that it's anything close to stable.  Should be a tough one.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Not sure which way I will buy it, but I certainly won't wait for other people to tell me how it is, I'll get it the day it comes out.[/font]

1. How was your race in Australia?
The discouragement for the difference between the cars is discouraging me. The GT3 Balance of Project Cars game is an example that Codemaster could follow. This is the result of my race in Australia, the discouragement.

2. Let's go back to Montreal. How do you like this trail?
I like fast tracks and montreal has the challenge of punishment and can take precious points.


3. Will you buy F1 2017 in pre-purchase or will you wait to see how it will be before you buy it?
After the failure of F1 2015, I waited a long time to buy the F1 2016. The issue is the open source problem and that discourages me to buy F1 2017. Many Multyplayers rooms are full of cheaters spoiling this game.

The race was chaotic and stressful to say the least, was a good race in the end, but was rough from many perspectives. My race honestly was filled with a lot of luck, and misfortune, but i ended up salvaging a 3rd place finish from it. Also here is my POV for the race, the first 12 Laps are were most of my battles happen, and a very close call happens on Lap 24, still not exactly sure how i lost control. Sorry for the quality, it just dont want it to hurt my frames too bad so i dont record 1080.

What do you mean by this?
In this case I refer to all possible conditions of car configuration and hardware. In my case, I have a very old steering wheel and I believe he does not take the necessary conditions for me to be able to drive without assists in F1 2016 and be competitive. Another point is to use the assistance and setup of the car itself. In the taking of time, for more identical to the setup and assists, following the line of my opponent I always take 2 to 3 seconds back. This difficulty I have since F1 2013 and was when I bought the MOMO steering wheel.

I was wondering the same thing, because we've set the cars to have equal performance.
