Honestly you dont even notice that it is a night race. Especially in a league race where you´re extra concentrated.


2. How were the 2 first races for you did you do better or worse than expected


First race very surprised and happy. Secondly had some issues but all in all unhappy about the result.

3. Have you any aims for this race is it a good one for you or a damage limitation for you?

Not my most favorite tracks. But I seem to do very well on tracks I dont enjoy a lot.

I mean the fireworks at the end are nice (even if theyre a distraction as a driver) but otherwise the only reason I can think of this being beneficial is that certain f1 teams struggle in hot weather and being at night time reduces the risk of the car blowing up.

2. How were the 2 first races for you did you do better or worse than expected

I cant say Im unhappy with the results, however I had the pace to be on the podium in both races. In comparison to last year however this is a definite step up, so overall I would consider myself satisfied.

3. Have you any aims for this race is it a good one for you or a damage limitation for you?
I enjoy Bahrain quite a lot, but I have yet to get the hang of it in this game so I hope I can capitalize on my strengths on this track from the past games.

- I really don't like this track, so I don't think the track being at night-time is going to improve it.

2. How were the 2 first races for you did you do better or worse than expected
- Worse than I expected. I was expecting to challenge for top 3, and I haven't really been able to properly mount a challenge for that yet.

3. Have you any aims for this race is it a good one for you or a damage limitation for you?
As I said on the first question, it's not one of my favorite tracks, so defo a damage limitation for me. Will still ofc push as hard as possible.

PS : NNNOOOOOOO they updated the Haas apperance to replace the red with that awful gray-silver. #changeteams #haasbeens #getfuckedcodies.

Hi dudes

Unfortunately as you guys know my seat is broken and can't drive with a couch lol. Also my work is taking all of my time and is making practicing for races impossible. So I will have to withdraw from the league. You can add me to reserve driver for if I eventually get time to join up again for a race or 2. Have fun lads

- I quite like night races, but in the end, it doesn't make much difference, when you are racing you won't really care about it.

2. How were the 2 first races for you did you do better or worse than expected
-First race I finished in P6 so I did better than excepted, but in China, I had some issues, and no points were scored there.

3. Have you any aims for this race is it a good one for you or a damage limitation for you?
-As you might know, this is my rookie year in League Racing, so I don't have any expectations, I push as hard as I can during every race to discover my limits etc... So there is no such a thing like 'damage limitation' for me, I'll try to use every opportunity to score points. But afterall this is not my favourite track, but I dont hate it either.

I prefer the light, but really.... whatever :)

In hindsight, it was really bad. Australia was big missed opportunity due to various people crashing or going off track I should have been able to get points but had PC-issues costing me lots of time every lap. China I had good position initially but ruined it all with terrible pit stop strategy.


3. Have you any aims for this race is it a good one for you or a damage limitation for you?

As always I'm aiming to be in the points. My plan isn't to push it to the limit unless I get a very bad quali, because in practice I've been having trouble keeping my car on track in turns 4 and especially 9/10.

In time trail, I can see a slow improvement in terms of time differential across these first few weeks (compared to others) so here's hoping I'm going to be steady in the points from this race on!

Very disappointing race for me. Started the race well and was p2 by the 3rd corner, however my lack of race practice showed with many mistakes and lockups. Had some good battles with berbo, but in the end 2 stop didnt work. Some dirty air or worn tyres caused me to spin twice while i was extra careful and that was race for me.
Shame cause a podium was definitely on the cards here.

Guess I'll write one aswell.
Didn't get a single lap in for quali due to me beeing totally bs at this game ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Started the race dead last, had a good start but decided to pull back and let the others do the "overtaking" for me.
It somehow worked and I found myself in P9 after the straight/Turn 4.
Ended Lap 1 in P7 because of some mistakes/battling of others and xaiden letting me through because he had some damage.
For the next laps till the pitstops I slowly gained time and eventually caught up to the train in fron of me cause they happened to battle quiet intensly as I later saw on the Streamvid. After pitting myself I found myself right behind ulukbek, but I was able to overtake him since he had the harder tyres.
Besides Scintillic slowly but steadily catching up to me and eventually overtaking me, a lock up, some randomly appearing lag cars followed by a 360°, not much else happened so I ended up in P7, the same position I was after Lap 1.

Was certainly a fun race, considering the mistakes I made I am pretty happy about it!
I'm looking forward to the next ones.

Excuse my bad englando i didnt really care

One of my weirdest races I think ever.. Didn't get any practice in and somehow started P8 on the grid, pretty happy about that one.

Got disconnected for a slight second on the formation lap and that's where everything went downhill.. I had time to reconnect but just at the braking point in turn 1 my bloody game tabbed out because of a windows update, I was up to P6 but all that got wasted, had to continue from second to last place I think. I couldn't hear anyone on team speak after that since F1 decided to put the game as an overlay sound of teamspeak.. I noticed after the race that my car was lagging all over the track without me knowing because the session was very smooth from my POV, I would have disconnected if I knew about it earlier in the race. I apologised to everyone on teamspeak because it wasn't my intention to ruin anyones race..

Anyways I thought I made a 1 stop work and my Mediums were only on 50% until I got the tyre regulation glitch on the second to last lap even if I started on the SS.. Bloody great codemasters……!

Finished P8 which is in the points but I can't say that I was happy about it, I was thinking about if I destroyed someone's race because of my laggy car. I would've of course disconnected if I knew about it as said, but I guess stuff like that happens sometimes.

Here are my race highlights :

[youtube]wRiEQXybP70[/youtube]

Somehow got P1 in quali. I wasn't expecting that at all, as I think I'm pretty average around this track.
I started the race good, and was planning to go 9 laps and then change to mediums for the rest of the race, but on lap 8 I was really struggling on the super-softs, and almost span out, so I decided to pit one lap earlier than I planned. Also, Millix had caught up to me, so I also wanted to get an undercut if possible.
I almost went ahead of Millix after he went into the pits, and we went side by side into the first corner, but he got the better of me. Then on the straight after the first corner, I missjudged where the braking point was, or millix broke slightly earlier than I was anticipating, and I slammed into the back of him. It was a very silly mistake to make, and I paid for it dearly with a yellow front wing. So I went into the pits for super-softs and was just gonna push as hard as possible.
In the end, I managed to claw my way back to P4, which was probably the place I was expecting before the race. But having started P1, It has to go down as another dissapointing race.

Race was good fun, was on the edge the whole race pushing to catch Millix, props to him.

Qualy went ok, a banker lap good enough for P3 wich i was surprised, second lap i cut the corner but was almost half a second up, would have been pole for sure.

Start was mediocre, lost a couple positions then i had to pass the guys who passed me quickly if i wanted to have a run for the win, i fought hard with McLaren of Sjoelbakkie and we had a moment wich costed us time, and probably a race win since i lost about 6-8 seconds on that lap, but its racing... I got past and then it was pretty calm until the pitstops, then i went on lap 10 to mediums and Sjoelbakkie got past me after the pitstop on track after, coz my tires were not up to temperature and he was on softs, but shortly after i passed him again and that was the action for me, until the end i was pushing like hell to catch Millix i reduced his 13 second gap to 4 and a half in the end but i ran out of laps, great race anyways and im looking forward to the next race in Russia. Enjoying this league, i was not expecting to be up there with the pace because this is my first online league and F1 game without any assists, so i am pretty happy with my performance so far, except the first race in Australia that was a race to forget. :D
