Last Season's Results (F1 2014):
1st: El_Majacko
2nd: RAF1FA
3rd: mightymurph51
Pole: RAF1FA (1.36.359)
Fastest Lap: RAF1FA (1.36.635)

Pre-race Questions:

1. In pre-season danirox triumphed from pole at Suzuka in dominant fashion. Will she repeat that success and break through for her maiden podium of the season?
2. A 12 point increase in Sauber's constructors championship lead would see the team seal the title with four rounds to spare. How do you rate the likelihood of such an occurrence?
3. craig's recent spell of form has seen him battling with the leaders in recent events. Might he grab his first podium here in Japan?
4. Suzuka is renowned as a driver's circuit with challenges all through the layout, from the Degners to 130R. Do you agree with this idea?

I don't think it'll be as easy, but I don't see any reason why this couldn't be her best result of the season!

It's certainly no guarantee, as Red Bull are a strong team on their day. Our target will be to seal the deal by the end of Austin.
3. craig's recent spell of form has seen him battling with the leaders in recent events. Might he grab his first podium here in Japan?
It would be nice to see a new face on the podium, especially one who has been putting in the effort to improve week by week. It wouldn't surprise me to see him up on the rostrum.
4. Suzuka is renowned as a driver's circuit with challenges all through the layout, from the Degners to 130R. Do you agree with this idea?
Its a circuit we all either love or hate. I used to dislike it, but recently I've grown quite fond of the circuit!

Q: 2nd
Annoyed. I keep bottling qualifying and its starting to piss me off. Right before the session I did a 28.70X but was unable to match it, and it would have been pole.

R: 1st
Made a decent start but wasn't able to challenge dreglar into turn 1. Immediately I noticed his rear end wasn't as stable as it perhaps needed to be. I showed him my nose into the chicane on lap 2, having noticed my top speed was higher than his, but decided I'd wait for DRS to make the move safely. Before it was enabled though, the Williams had slithered off the road at the Esses and I had the lead. From there I managed a small gap to kartdude, which I started to extend using rich fuel in order to get a secure gap in case of undercut. He pitted earlier, but onto mediums, and I covered the next lap onto softs to the end. The gap steadily increased from then on until the end. GG to all!
