[ltr]1)This week are are in Singapour Singapore a Monaco by night ! How do you like this place ?
Singapore is one of my favourite tracks because of how twisty it is. I prefer the original layout, especially with the original turn 10 chicane. They also changed the section just after turn 10 which results in a much tighter turn 13, and I appreciate the challenge there. It's my favourite lap to commentate on because of how complicated it get. Also, I took my first PRL win and pole here, which was on my 2nd start.
2) How was your race in Monza ?
It was the kind of race I needed, which was being smooth and consistent.
3)Sirotkin got the seat at Williams , any thoughts on that ?
I guess Kubica wasn't quick enough. Hopefully Sirotkin is ready, because I remember a few years ago he was in the running for an F1 seat when he was 18. From what I've heard, he needs to be more consistent.
Remember when Williams were going to announce their drivers by Christmas last year? I remember.[/ltr]

I've never done a league race here before, so it has taken me a bit of time to come to terms with it.  I like it, but I find the race is a little too long after so many quick corners.  I feel really drained after a race here.

2) How was your race in Monza ?
Much better than it could have been.  I had a bad spin at the second Lesmos and had to work my way back up to 5th.  Without that, I might have had 4th from Megaman, but it would have been a battle.

3)Sirotkin got the seat at Williams , any thoughts on that ?
Not too many thoughts as I don't really know him.  It is a little sad that we didn't get the fairy tale story of Kubica, but Sirotkin proved himself in the tests.

I thought it was a joke to imply that it rains a lot in Singapore. Hope it doesn't this track is already hard when its dry. 

I'd also like to point out, its been 6 rounds without any incidents being reported (maybe 7). Just shows how the quality of driving has gone up lately, congrats guys. - I know incidents happened but none worthy of reporting, but hey, still progress!!

Didn't really know the layout of this place until a few weeks ago. Started running TT laps and could not stop! by far the most fun track for me. Additionally I finally got around to fixing the microstuttering issues I was having, very excited to race tonight! 

2) How was your race in Monza ?
I was away for Monza.

3)Sirotkin got the seat at Williams , any thoughts on that ?
Interesting choice to go with two pay drivers. Stroll had some gains late last season and Sirotkin is supposedly fast but inconsistent, so we will see.

On another note, I don't have a teammate. So if any team/driver that does regular practices would not mind adopting me I would be grateful. I have tried equal cars a few times, the Merc and the Williams handle very differently and I would like some time driving my Merc powered boat.

Next season isn't too far away. Start scouting for a teammate and ask around. Tron and Fruit are the 2 consistent drivers with a good attendance and don't have teammates.

Race Recap!  I start with my hotlap/qualifying.  The race starts at 2:25.  I have a spin at 6:12 where I lose four positions after starting 4th.  I lock up because of my broken wing at 6:55 and lose two more positions.  I pit at 8:09 and come out in 11th.  I pass a crashed Pat at 11:06.  I pass more people in the pits at 11:17.  I pass a crashed Atomic at 11:49.  More overtakes of people in the pits at 12:12.  I catch Bobino at 13:15 and do everything I can for the next several laps to pass him.  The closest I got was after 16:14.  We had a small tap of the wheels, but no harm.  I dive into the pits for ultrasofts at 19:14.  I catch and overtake Megaman at 20:31.  I feel like he had damage or lifted to let me by or something.  I'm catching DeadZero, but he goes in to the pits at 21:26.  I have a lapse of concentration at 22:14 and miss my brake marker.  Luckily the gaps were so large that I didn't lose a position.  My last lap, which started right before Dark won, began at 23:00.  Enjoy and let me know what you think!

That round was tough! The start was quite difficult for me as multiple cars in front of me were rubber banding (I don't know exactly what was the issue there).

I hit the wing on lap 1, entered the pit on lap 2, damaged the wing again on lap 3, entered the pit on lap 4, broke the wing on lap 6, so I just gave up at that point :p

Urban races are not putting the spotlight on my hidden talent....

While this was the most tiring race for me so far, nothing happened besides me crashing into the wall on the same lap that my teammate did. My recovery put me in a gap where I didn’t need to race against anyone. 

My qualifying wasn’t any good. My first two attempts were invalidated by going off the track, and I lost about half a second by braking too late for turn 1.

Sorry for bumping you in lap 4! I had Megaman right on my tail and needed to get by as soon as possible. I knew you must have had damage or something wrong, cause I was catching you pretty fast. Great job on your 4th place tho!

Here's my recap. Started 6th and finished 6th. I had a good battle with piboye from lap 11 to 18th but had a lack of concentration on lap 19th and broke my front wing and had to pit. Until that moment, I was in control of my race and was on a one pit stop strategy. On lap 20th, Deadzero disapeared in front of me and I found him back later on track when he hit a wall before the stadium entry. He told me after the race that we had some sync issues together.

Haha that must have messed with you. I'll post my video later in the week. The game put your car in the worst places during the race.

I liked the video!  Your crash didn't lose nearly as much time as mine did.  I had to work to turn around.  Also, as a note on your video, I had a really hard time hearing your commentary over the engine sounds.

Good race Bobino.  I had a 6-10 wing setup, which saved me time over the lap, but when I got behind you I couldn't pass.  I was faster on the straights, but they aren't long enough and unfortunately the DRS straights have high speed corners before them.  I lost time to you on the final corner each time and I'd close it by the end of the main DRS straight, but then there aren't any overtaking opportunities.  Good race.
