What kind of conference?  I go to science conferences frequently.

Oh, cool! I am at the American Astronomical Society meeting presenting some work.

Least favorite track by far, look for me in the wall after ascari

I hope to do as well as I did in the preseason and finish 4th. Granted I did well because I learned how to drive without assists quicker than most but you all caught up come race 1

Awesome.  I've been to a couple of those, but usually go to the American Geophysical Union.  What kind of work do you do?  I work on the Juno spacecraft.

That's really cool Piboye! Give me a reminder to be your teammates next season, I want to ear everything about Nasa and space exploration while we race.

What a small world! Heard all about Juno today, looks like the nature of Jupiter's core is not so obvious to infer. I am working on Spitzer data right now, we should talk science sometime!

I'll send a PM to respond so we don't hog this thread.

1) How was your race last week at SPA ?
My best finish yet (4th) that I'm pumped up for this race. Hoping to at least get 5th place this week but I'll push for higher.

2) This week we are in Monza , how do you like this track ?
I think I like it because I finished 4th in the preseason but everyones skill level went up since then.

3) We’re at round 12 now, how do you compare with your teammate ?
Before spa we were and par with each other and only a few points separated us but after spa it gave me a huge leap forward. He is improving tho and I can see his consistency being better than mine most times. Planning to partner up again next season.

Pre-Race Interview:
1) How was your race last week at SPA ?

It was my best finish yet with 2nd place.  I need to get a race win now.  

2) This week we are in Monza , how do you like this track ?

I like it well enough.  Mistakes at the wrong moments can be costly however.  I crashed out during the pre-season, but I hope to do much better this time.

3) We’re at round 12 now, how do you compare with your teammate ?
Here is the record between me and MBr: Championship Position 4-7, Points 120-62, Podiums 3-2, Qualifying 9-2, Finish Position 8-3.  MBr is a good, quick driver and has had some great races.  He just hasn't been as consistent through the season.

I'm sorry to bring this up again, but I think there needs to be a serious discussion on TeamSpeak about getting the safety car back into this League. Last night's race had too many opportunities for the safety car to come out and bunch up the field. This could have changed the outcome of the race entirely. I understand that without the safety car, these races are pretty much dependent on your skill level, but we can all agree that racing is more than just skill, there is luck as well. Considering that there was a rule change randomly at the start of the race yesterday, maybe I'll rule can be implemented when the safety car completely destroys a person's race. Although, the safety car is much better than it was before. This decision shouldn't only be made by the organisers, it should involve all participants.

the safety car doesn't work simple as that  it doesn't even come out

and believe I want the safety car more than anyone here lol

also there were no  changes in the rules , a bit of confusion but it was the right call

4.A race will only be restarted if the lead car has completed less than 10% of race distance, rounded to nearest whole lap. Any formation lap shall count as one of these laps.

Not saying is perfect but we should weigh the pros and cons. I dont see it messing up that often. At least give it a shot in one race this season and see how it does. I mean worse things have messed up peoples race than the safety car. L'Acadiens video is one example, his game just seems to be glitching out every race. Ive had issues with the pit settings. The major issues we had in the USA pre-season race have all been fixed. If you really want to shut me up, use the safety car in the next race and just see how it goes. If no ones race is messed up, use it again. If i see it messing up someones race, then we can go back to no safety car. Just I'll keep bringing this up until we use it in an actual race. The test races you guys do are all forced, make someone crash on purpose and such, see how it works in an actual race setting in a 50% race. Just shut me up and try it for one race in Singapore.
