[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 last weekend was the Toro Rosso driver XxCarrexX06, after having some problems early on in the race, and consequently falling to the back end of the grid, he showed phenomenal pace to climb his was through the grid and up to 3rd. 

[ul]
[li]Incredibly, Carre has 3 times more poles than anyone else, an incredible stat, given how competitive the grid is. (6).[/li]
[li]Deki continues his amazing run of form, having gained 86 points out of a possible 100, over a 4 race span, only Michemery has a better record over 4 races at 90.[/li]
[li]Mercedes have not had a driver on the podium for 5 races.[/li]

Pre Race Questions:

[li]A lot of rumours have been floating around the paddock, about team contracts being broken. News is the Spaniard Carre, and Championship Winner Michemery have teamed up for S15.

[li]How do you think the S15 grid should be decided?[/li]

1. I think there will be huge amounts of pressure on them to win, and i think as both will be strongly competing for the Drivers title, we could see both teammates fall out with each other. If Deki teams up with someone of similar pace i could see his team looking in good shape. Its hard to predict, a new game brings out the competitiveness of drivers to want to be the best. I think we could see some drivers who havent performed in season 14 doing very well in season 15. 
2. Still unsure how i think it should be decided, but either way i think everyone would prefer one full grid rather than 2 half full grids.
3. 1 stop, its so much faster, the 2 stoppers will have to have immense pace to try and beat the 1 stoppers if they dont have any problems.

Pre Race Questions: 
1)A lot of rumours have been floating around the paddock, about team contracts being broken. News is the Spaniard Carre, and Championship Winner Michemery have teamed up for S15. What are your thoughts on the new arguably favourites for S15 constructors? What other potential pairings are ones to look out for?
I think Carre and mich would be big favorites. i allso exspect every driver thats been good on 2016 will smash on 2017 aswell

2)How do you think the S15 grid should be decided?
Basicly i think the drivers that consistently show up should have a spot. its clear not everyone can join since there are 2 cars less for 2017.
So yeah i think the drivers that drove in this league for the last couple of seasons should have a spot and try to make a 2nd league or wait how many from the current league actually want to join

3)This week we visit the Silverstone Circuit - 1stop or 2 stop? 1 stop seems massively quicker round this track. Which strategy will you opt for?
Cant do 1 stop with my tyre wear. but since its silverstone rain is a real possible thing.

1) I believe that the pairing of Smithy and Deki could be one of the only pairings to challenge Mich and Carre if they decide to team, but if Jume finds a good teammate I believe they could be up there too.

Many people disagree but I believe the leagues should be based on mainly timetrial, with the top drivers getting into split 1. People say this discounts other variables such as race pace, race craft etc but if that's so, they will finish lower on the championship and could be replaced by drivers from split 2 next season. In addition, test races could be conducted before the season to see if anyone in split 1 does not deserve their place and if anyone in split 2 deserves a promotion.

I will be going for the 1 stop as it is simply much faster and I need to be bold with strategy in order to score points due to the competitive nature of the grid.

1. Carre & mich can only lose the championship. If they win, ok. That's what everyone was expecting. I'm not sure how they will work as a team. Both will be able to fight for the title, so it's getting more & more serious between them with every race. Will be interesting to watch. I'm expecting something like between HAM/ ALO at Hungary in the pits xD

2.
Our Loyal driver with good pace should get a full time seat. Also new driver like rikkurich or gary should be save cause they've shown good participation.
If we split the league in D1 & D2, we should look at the pace but we shouldn't forget facts like participation & fairness in fights. If a driver had too many incidents in the past, he should be in D2, no matter how fast he is. There he can prove he is able to improve his driving.

3. 3stopp for sure. Too much tyre wear tho

1) Well, i think it will be an intense championship against him and the other top drivers. We have decided to give us extra respect on track. Anyway, F1 2017 will be different, it can happen everything in a race and the fight beetwen us will be impossible to avoid :p

2) I agree on switch about having 2 leagues based on the pace. The gap beetwen the first and the last would be smaller and the races would be crazy as there are many drivers with possibility to win. But that would be great with a full grid, which se don't have at the moment.

3) The main problem of going 2 stops is the time you loose in the pit lane. Almost 35 seconds so i think everyone will have to go 1 stop.

Carre and mich will be favourites going in to the season but you have to remember being so close on pace they could have problems trying to pit at the same time but apart from that they'll be hard to beat.

How do you think the S15 grid should be decided?

I'm obviously biased but those who have been in the legue for a while now and have good atendence should be given priority then whoever signs up first after that gets a seat. A 2 tier grid Is interesting but I'd prefer 1 full grid.

I can one stop but starting in the middle of the pack hasn't been working well for me so a 2 stop is tempting starting on the softs but il probably do a 1 stop.

I want to return to the top and I think these cars or the classics have a chance to bring be back into the frame somewhat. Since 2014, I've struggled with the cars and a return to higher downforce and a chance of returning to the Top 5 every week would be the aim. Maybe Frederic Vasseur could be a key guy in helping that like people at Williams in 2013 like Mike Coughlan. Who knows. I'm expecting to return.

Me first, the rest second.

1 stop. It's my only chance to get anything good.
