1. I really enjoy racing in the dark, i feel it makes the racing more intense, no idea why xD (Lights on the cars look brighter?). So i wouldnt mind racing some of the daytime tracks during darkness, i think one of the longer tracks would be very fun, such as Britain or Spa.

2. Max Verstappen = Previously i would have said Michemery, but with Falcon joining the league, i think Falcon is a bit more like Verstappen than Mich, he has been quite daring in some of the races, and is faster ;)
Charles Leclerc = I think HiHaHo could be the Charles Leclerc of the league, as i dont think many people in the division know how fast he is, so possibly him.
Sebastian Vettel = Think ill have to say Neyo, he is German and always on top of his game, and gets similarly angry when something doesnt go his way xD
Sergio Perez = Deki106, i dont think Deki gets on very well with any of his teammates, so it is fortunate he hasnt had one for most of this season.

3. I feel if someone is being reported significantly more than other drivers they should be punished, Thus, i think if someone accumulates say 6 penalty points, they are banned from driving the following race, and like the real system after a set amount of races from the given penalty, those points should be removed, thus a driver does not stay on the same amount of points once they get penalty points, as they will be removed after a set time.

1. I'm not too fussed with the light. It does look  fighter oddly! Which is good for apexing corners. 
2.

3. It's tough. I would say that having a penalties points system similar to real F1 would be ideal. That may affect long term participation though. 

2. Max would be Army. Great pace but sometimes a bit inconsistent.
Vettel is Tigaby. Slightly mental and whilst he is leading the championship most expect that to not be the case come Abu Dhabi.
Leclerc would be Darius. Sneaking under the radar.
Perez is Macca. Tipped for big things based on his previous form but not quite hitt8ng the heights. 
I would be Hulkenberg. Come close to a podium a few times but unlikely to ever get one 😂

1. I do quite like the night races, but I do not prefer them. I also think a part of the charm of night races is that there are only two of them.
 
2. Max Verstappen = V5, he has shown some great pace the last couple of races, but keeps bottling it except for Monza
    Charles Leclerc = Darius ( just stealing one of oldskool his answers)
    Sebastian Vettel = Tigaby, was always on the pace during the start of the season, but has fallen back a bit.
    Sergio Perez = RacingAtHome, shows some good pace on some tracks and than just messes up.
 
3. I think there should be a system to punish drivers who get several penalties. The best system would be the system used in real F1, but this system is quite hard to use, as you have to assess how dangerous everything was and base the points on that, so I think it is better to use a system where you get punished if you get like 3 steward penalties, for an accident during the race involving another driver, in the span of 5 races, than 5-8, 7-11, 9-14, 11-16 and 13-19 and after you get punished you go to the first tier, 3-5.

1. I don't care, it makes no difference to me. I guess it's nice for a change.

2.
Verstappen would be Falcon, which speaks for itself.
Leclerc would be Michael (HiHaHo) because I think he has a lot of potential.
Vettel would be Michael Angelo because he has really good pace, but unlike Vettel seems more calm. (Deki definitely isn't like Vettel)
Perez would be Rikkurich or Smithy because they always find themselves well inside the points but they aren't the quickest. They are good on their tyres and sometimes can snatch podiums

3. Maybe drivers should collect points over a season. A bit like real life, when they reach a certain limit of points they get a qualifying ban or time penalty. The amount of points depends on how bad the incident is.

1. I don't think it really makes too much of a difference. I really enjoy the aeshetic of night races and clear day races. So long as it's not cloudy I'm happy, because I think the game looks good either way.

2. Verstappen, I'd say Michemery or Falcon. I've not really raced against Falcon too much so can only really go off what other drivers have said. LeClerc, I dunno. I wouldn't say there's a standout driver who's come in under the radar who really has championship potential, so again, very hard to say. Vettel has to be Deki for me: both German and both share that slight streak of entitlement and superiority (in a good way) that helps them to the top of the field. On Perez, I agree with Michemery. Smithy and Rikkurich never tend to be the best qualifiers but generally have strong races that lifts them well into the points.

3. A penalty point system, where drivers receive penalty points for any offences (i.e. if an incident is a driver's fault but not worth a full points penalty, they can be awarded a penalty point instead, as well as penalty points for incidents they are directly punished for). Like in real life, if a driver gets X amount of penalty points, then they receive a race ban. If they receive a higher amount of penalty points, or two race bans, say, then this could lead to permanent exclusion from the league maybe?

 I mean if you look back to who my teammates were you might realize why lol

1. Doesn't really change anything for me but it looks nice so why not
2. Max: Mich in Hungary and falcon in general
Charles: Carre because it seems like Leclerc could really reach a championship one day and i believe in Carre to do the same in esports
Seb: Probably have to say me:))) just because we would both do everything to win
Perez: Sam because he wants to get mentioned by someone otherwise nobody even realizes him
3. Having our own stewards... don't want them to just give stupid penalties

Glad to be back racing after busy crappy weekend made me miss a race.

This week the two divisions will race at the Marina Bay circuit in Singapore under the cover of darkness. One of the two races driven during the night, do you prefer races driven under these light conditions?

I like unique race tracks and conditions so I like Singapore, the walls they could be removed though :) front wing bills.

Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, Sebastian Vettel, and Sergio Perez. Which 4 drivers in your league are most similar to these 4 drivers?

Hard to think of these maybe Neyo is Vettel, but Neyo could win future championships unlike Vettel. fell got to name one after my teammate but Jakes not a rookie like Charles Leclerc, or tried to kill me in a sim race like Sergio on Ocon at Belguim, so Jake is Verstappen makes the daring moves to get higher up the grid.

With numerous penalties having been given out this season, do you think there should be some system in place that punishes drivers who get several penalties? (Please describe your system)

I always liked the added weight to winning cars for the next race that British touring cars did, but know a game won't ever have that ability. Just got to stop people getting them in the first place. Educate don't discipline maybe a series of What if videos by someone tech savvy that we could talk about on the forums. One before each race maybe.

Again I made mistakes speeding by 1 mile into the pits so had to go around again to do a 5 sec penalty but came out behind a good close battle between my teammate and Oldschool.

I ran into the back of Crist and that was all my fault too, hope didn't damage his car too.

19 mins 10 secs formation lap.
52 mins my full mistake Crist did what I would have done but I was looking down at the map to see how close they all were.
56 mins 48 secs Coming out of pits behind Jake and Oldschool.
1 hr 05.26 Seeing a car had spun on the map.
1 hr 05.35 learn its Tigaby.
1 hr 05.43 let Tigaby back past don't like passing people and taking their place if because spun or out-braked themselves.
1 hr 06.15 After driving behind Tigaby think he may be damaged so heading for the pits and he may miss the pit lane because of the damage so give space incase crosses back onto the track this did happen happily I hadn't got back onto my speed so could dodge it in time. Think this was when Tig left race would be good if everyone stayed in the race even if not where they would like to be this has happened in other seasons and on other games so not getting at anyone. I get lonely at the back sometimes.
