Hey guys! I just want to give you an heads-up that I won't be there for this race. It is just bad luck as I am leaving for 1 week vacation during Canadian thanksgiving, but the break is one week later (Oct 18)  :p.

Anyway, I hope I gave enough heads-up for a reserve driver to replace me for this one. Take care of my car (don't pee in it)!

ahah, I am not celebrating thanksgiving per se  :D. I'm using 4 vacations days at work to complete the holiday on Monday, this way I can leave for the week exploring US's East Coast and Washington DC area :p. I am not even spending it in Canada (sorry Justin Trudeau!)

1) How was your race in China ?
Unfortunately I had to miss it due to vacation but it was a nice week off :)


2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What is your expectations ?
This track has grown on me each season and has turned into one of my favorites to race at.  The thing I do not like is they do not have the evening to night transition correct in this game for whatever reason.  Need a solid finish to gain back some points.


3) What kind of weather you prefer in a race ? Clear ? Rain ? Mix Weather ?
I either like a clear race or a mixed weather.  I think the weather in F1 is a lot of fun but when the whole race is full wets that can take too much time.

1) How was your race in China ?
Didn't race due to work but I do love this track. It seemed like a clean race even with the rain which makes me sad I missed it. Oh well, I got to see Halsey instead.

2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What is your expectations ?
Not a fan of this track, I seem to slip around a lot. Entering turn 4 and turn 11 is always a gamble for me, while turning into turn 10 I always lose traction on the left side tires, can't seem to have a perfect race on this track. I hope this time it's different.


3) What kind of weather you prefer in a race ? Clear ? Rain ? Mix Weather ?
I like both clear and mixed weather like Nick said. It changes things up. But a full race in the rain won't be that exciting. More just a challenge to stay on the track rather than racing others.

1) How was your race in China?
As everyone already knows, I'm super pumped that I got a podium. It wasn't a perfect race at all (I lost 6 places at the start, got stuck behind a slightly slower car for several laps, and had two spins), but getting the strategy right helped negate that lost time.

2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What are your expectations?
I've hardly practiced for this race, unlike the previous two races. I would like a top 5 finish again, but I will probably have to lower my expectations for this race to top 10.

3) What kind of weather do you prefer in a race? Clear? Rain? Mixed Weather?
I prefer to race in clear conditions, but I've continued to improve my wet weather racing. Mixed weather races used to scare me because it can be difficult to get the strategy right and I had no clue when to change, but I've begun to learn from my terrible calls in my practice sessions.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1) How was your race in China ?[/font]
Literally the exact opposite race as piboye's. Qualified P4, finished 6th. I got a real good start again and made 1 (almost 2) position and I didnt have any spins/crashes etc. My pace was decent enough to stay in 3rd for most of the race but I absolutely ruined my chance of a podium with 1 bad strategy call. I ended up staying on Inters one lap longer than everyone else (Jeff told me to, GOD DANGIT JEFF). It cost me 25+ seconds and I wasnt able to make it up as that 25+ second loss put me right in front of iceman and i had to work to defend my position for the rest of the race. I was able to but that kept me from making up what I lost.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I expect a pretty good result here. Im not that good in the rain, so a race in the dry should give me some desperately needed points.[/font]

Dry :)

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Very good, 4th place with mix weather and 1 extra pit stop, couldnt ask for more.[/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What is your expectations ?[/font]
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Top 5 as usual. My pace seems ok so far from my TT practice. I'm not a big fan of turn 10 but the rest is ok.[/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Clear weather of course but i didn't dislike the mix conditions we had at china.. full wet race is just a waste of time imo. [/font]

A LOT better than I expected, P1 by the end, pretty psyched about it!

2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What is your expectations ?
Glad you asked! Huge mess at T1, penalty for trying to avoid OR damage, then it's a mystery, not a great track for me but hoping for a decent result.

3) What kind of weather you prefer in a race ? Clear ? Rain ? Mix Weather ?
I like dry and changing - dry because you can actually race the car like it was built to be raced, changing conditions because every lap is different and it's more about feel than expectation, at least for me.  I never practice in the wet so when it starts chucking it's always a new experience and an unknown.  Full wet I just kind of find to be annoying - the car never feels good and you have to drive on eggshells.

IM curious to know too. I didnt get to participate in yesterdays test but playing the game on my own, everything seems stable and perfect. I dont get any kind of stutter anymore, the safety car came our right away (in SP grand prix), this didnt happen before for me. Even in single player the SC didnt want to come out.

im not gonna try to start another argument, so im not gonna say names. what happened is the person in front of me braked for a corner probably 50+m before i do (and i assume most of the other drivers do as well) and because i was barely over a car length distance away, i just ran into the back of him and it ruined my race.

i just retired my car because there was no point on continuing. I was 40 sec down on 14th position and had a yellow front wing.

Zephyr, first of all, you went off track and you came back dangerously without looking who was coming behind you, you almost hit 2 cars the way you came back. I had the momemtum to pass you but you stick on me all the way, the arrows was red and i was looking my mirrors to try to know where you are and thats when i miss my breaking point and hit my partner in front of me. Second. because of that incident, i was last all the race with +3 laps but i STAYED til the end even knowing i was gonna finish last.

also, going into the braking zone, i was still right next to you. only half your car was ahead of me. stop acting like i divebombed from 100m away. You missed you braking point. has nothing to do with me
