Nick, taking a summer break with the rest of F1?

Man i wish that the summer break was over man, I feel like we haven't got to watch a race in so long.  Especially since the next race is Spa and it is probably my favorite track to watch!

This race was by far, my best recovery drive of the season. After going to set out a good qually time i cut the corner twice and ended up starting p10. After a few laps i had made my way up to 4/5th place but then when i went to make my pit stop, i accidently went in at 52 mph

:( JUST 2 MPH F***** ME!

After that i served my drive thru and came out in 10th again. I managed to finish p4 on track (p5 after 3 second penalty) after stretching my race out to a 2 stop when many other people did an extra stop.

Little advice here...

Try to leave more space when someone try to overtake you. We are not professional driver, it's a fun league :p. I saw two times where nickthequick tried to overtake you on the outside and you closed the door a little bit when he was ready to overtake. Since nick is a very experimented driver and have good skills, he instinctively decided to back off and try later. Be aware that not all drivers can have that instinct.

Also, be aware that next season is no assist. Maybe I'm wrong as I don't play that game, but you can't be aggressive like that under braking approaching a corner. In your video, we clearly saw you hard braking last minute and turn your steering at the same time. Yes trail braking is possible with a F1 car, but you must change your braking point, be easier with brake pedal and always keel a little throttle to keep the weight balance of the car.

Hope this help :)

Had to keep the whole first stint in as Dark and I were having a great battle.  Too bad he got taken out but some good footage before that!
Looking back at the footage Plasma's moves don't seem quite as late as I thought they were, but when you are driving 100 some mph going into a highspeed turn they sure do.  
Objects appear further away in the mirrors than they really are ;)

Thanks for the advice, ill try to keep that in mind, but either way my move on dark was dumb and pretty poor, completely misjudged him and then when i realized i messed up it was too late.

Definitely feeling hyped for the new game, lots of gameplay videos up now, but we still have not seen anything about online!

I did the beta and I didn't see anything weird playing online ! one good thing is that you see the pings of people in the lobby

I hope this next week goes fast and I was hoping that feature would be there!
