1) How was your race in Australia ?
Terrible. Didn't get a qualifying lap in; my fault. Race started and I had front wing damage on lap 1 so I had to pit and went onto super softs. managed to get back up to first and intended on pitting once more to get softs but disconnected. 
2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations?
I am hoping to get pole and win. I don't care for the track in the slightest but hope to have a better result. 
3) How many hours of practice you do per week? 
2-3 hours.

1) How was your race in Australia ?

It went quite well. I started 8th and finished 3rd. Getting a podium early was very unexpected, and enjoyable.

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

Finishing the race seems to guarantee points with so many people crashing. So I am aiming to finish the race.

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

4-5.

1) How was your race in Australia ?
Pretty good. I put in a good quali time, ran my race and finished 2nd. I had one little moment off track in sector 3 (of course) which forced me to take a 2nd stop to replace my wing. If it weren't for that, I had the time for first. Maybe next time.
2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?
Ugh, China. I really struggle with this track. I just don't like the way it feels, and I always seem to have oversteer. I've been focused on getting a good setup for my car and I think I made some progress today. Regardless, I do tend to have a good race pace and I expect to have a decent race. 
3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
5+ (yeah, I know... haha)

1) How was your race in Australia ?
Felt good, would've probably done really well if I was down in D2 but took the call up to race D1 this week. This is probably my least favorite track so felt I had nothing to lose.
2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?
Well, back to D2. I'm not sure on my expectations just yet. Finish and finish in the points are my real expectations
3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
With my work schedule blowing up I can't practice nearly as much as I used to. I can only really get a couple hours in right now.

1) How was your race in Australia ?
    Pretty good considering that I got off the track and spun at the beginning of the race. The qualify in the wet help me to get a good starting position.

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?
   I don't know what to expect. I 'd really like a podium but I got problem doing 2 good laps back to back.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
   I do about 3 hours to build a setup and another 2 hours for testing the tire wear of my setup. Sometime it is horrible and I have to start over... I'd say about 6 hours from Sunday to Thursday night.

 What was your race like in Australia ?
      I will say that my first PRL race went better than expected.  After qualifying to a position I fully expected to finish in the race, I was very happy to be able to finish in the top five.  This was brought on, no doubt, from several .more accomplished , drivers ahead of me either wrecking or disconnecting  
What are your expectations for China?
         I like the Chinese circuit. I hope to keep my nose clean and build on the points that I Leslie acquired in the last race.
How much time do you practice? 
I usually get a few hours in every night.

1) How was your race in Australia ?
Everything went according to plan! I got pole (twice) and had a relatively lonely race out front with no issues, but it was still by no means easy. I was super stoked to claim my first win! I also scored big in the fantasy league, as I predicted myself to win and get pole, and forza to come 2nd. My teammate did a killer job as well and came home 5th, starting from 7th on the grid. We are currently in the lead for constructors!

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations ?
I doubt China will be anything like Australia. Seems like the lap times we're running are a lot closer than they were at Australia. China is the type of track that really eats tires too, so managing tire wear will be critical. 

3) How many hours of practice you do per week ?
Now that I am a full time student and have a full time girlfriend, I haven't been able to practice as much as before. I still manage around 8-10 hours week, give or take a little, depending on homework load.

It went way better than I thought it was going to. My car was junk before the first pit stop but then I changed the wings in the pit stop and the car felt way better

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

I expect to have the same kind of race I had last week, except with the lagging out.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week?
Probably 3-4.

Pre-Race Interview:

1) How was your race in Australia?

I ran a conservative race, starting P7 at a track I usually don't run well at I wanted to get some points in the bag and run a clean race. Moved up 2 spots after the start and stayed in 5th, I kept a 6 second gap to Nick the entire race which was a good enough pace to comfortably finish in 5th and get some points.

2) We are going to China for the next race. What is your expectations>
China is a track that I don't like at all, I'm usually never quick there and have issues in sector 2. Hopefully that can change for this race, I'm excited to get back out there and compete. I'd love to stay in the points but in this league and as competitive as it is you can never tell. Overall I'm hoping for a clean race inside the points.

3) How many hours of practice you do per week?
3-5 depending on how busy I am.

1) it was great, better than I thought it would be since it was my first PRL race. I was very nervous about loosing control or crashing or adding extra time. But I stayed focused in finishing the race and I ended up in 7th place.

2) I feel a little more confident, I’m not nervous at all so I’m sure I can get through the Top 10. I hope it rains!

3) How many hours of practice you do per week?
I got q lot of work to do, I just go 2 hours for this week!

Q:9 (11 on grid cuz of code masters glitch)
R:8

Just when the session loaded I saw we would have a wet race, so I tried to adjust my setup accordingly. Didn't really do much to better my times. Thanks to a crappy code masters glitch, 2 guys who didn't set times started 1,2 so I could select whatever tires I wanted for the race. Had a really good start and was holding my own, just before it was time to pit to put on inters I had a spin while running 3rd and lost my front wing and a bunch of time. Not only that but during my pit that lap the McLaren boys thought they didn't need to touch my car for the first 2 seconds while I was sitting there. Just to add to my frustration, I had a mental lapse while getting ready to overtake for 6th midway through the race and missed a braking point so horribly I slid into the wall and broke my wing again. All in all I'm pleased I was able to finish the race. Should've had a better finish than what I did but it is what it is.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with that glitch, but I think plastr was the only one up front who didn't set a time. Mac had a time, and pole at one point, but then his time disappeared from the timing page. I don't know what happened or if he did something.

That seems to be something in common with the Aussie league. It seems that people joining the lobby while quali is already going is causing the grid order to go out of whack. This is something we will need to watch closely with next week.

I'm not sure what happened or how during quali, but once the actual race started it put plastr on pole, then the order looked fine (at least up to ditch, mac, and myself who started 2,3,4 but should have been 1,2,3). Plastr recognized the issue though and sent a message that he would stay left to let everyone pass, which he did.

i saw one other from quali in porq's video but i don't think he actually started up front.

all that said, it would have been nice to start on the left side to get that run up to turn 1.
