1) How was your race in Australia ?
It was the toughest race of my life!! Did even make it to the Start!! Just kidding wasn't there :-(

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?
God I hate China, so expectations are very low indeed. I hope for a top 10 finish but ... top 15 is more realistic I guess.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
I usually do 4 practices of 45min each. So roughly 3h a week.

. . .

Not too good. Probably my 2nd worst track in the calendar.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
Since i started college, i know practice around 1.5-3 hours a week.

1) How was your race in Australia ?
I spun twice, so I can't say it was a great race. But I thought I had a great points finish to start the season. In reality, the race was pretty lonely as I finished 40 s behind 3rd and 30 s ahead of 5th.

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?
I hope that I can have another top 5 finish. That would be great.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
I usually put in a few hours into time trial to learn the track and find how I can gain or lose time. Then I try to do two practice races. So, all in all, 4 to 5 hours.

1) How was your race in Australia ?

It was not that great... I brushed my front wing a bit too strong in Crazycanuck's back, so I had to pit on lap 2. Right after that I messed up the high speed chicane and spun into the wall.

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?

I find this track quite challenging to learn...I'll see what I can do

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?

I try to put 3 hours (mainly time trial) to learn the track, but this figure has been quite inconsistent since the first pre-season race.

Just a little shootout to the organizers. Can we do like in Season 10 and the EPCC guys, which is to set the lobby to "Friends Only" rather than "Invite Only". This way when people disconnect they can rejoin the race in there ghosting car. This way, we don't have to reset the lobby and restart the session every time someone looses connection before a time is posted in Quali or the first lap or.....
Here is the reconnection procedure thank you to Bobino12
(Its based on the F1 2016 game, but Im pretty sure the procedure is the same for F1 2017)

Yeah we tried that and it cause synch issues and the host (me) received alot of freeze lag kind of thing.. last time we did it, i lost 2 places because of the lag that it cause, Darklol and Pat were 5 sec behind me and in only 1 sec, they were like 2 sec in front of me lol.. maybe with 2017, it might be different. If we have some players who wanna test with me tonite, be on TS before 8pm eastern

1) How was your race in Australia ?

After a ok quali with a 5th place on the grid, i spun in the first lap. I broke my wing and had to pit.. I was last and made my way to the 6th place which is very good.

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?

Well, it's a tough track. Top 5 is always my goal but it might rain here so i will do my best.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?

I usually do some TT laps in the weekend when i can and pracTize online with the guys 1-2 hours before the race.

Yes sadly the reconnect procedure must be better on the console than through steam because we tried during pre-season and it cause FFB issues (supposedly fixed) but also sync issues. Also if I remember it happened again when Lacadien left one of the pre-season races and the host migrated. So like Pat and Lacadien mentionned it is pretty unstable when it tries to reconnect or resync.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to tomorrow's race because I will be out of town. Sorry for letting you know so late, but I wasn't sure when I was leaving until today. It sucks cause I am pretty good at this track and enjoy it. Good luck to everyone and see you next week!
