Kind of a nightmare to be honest. I had some mental mistakes that really messed me up. But finished the race and thats the most important thing.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What is your expectations?[/font]

Finish the race is expectation number 1. Number 2 would be to finish top 5 or top 7.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I actually rather enjoy the rain or mixed weather. I feel comfortable for the most part and feel that i can push the limits much safer that way than I can during dry conditions. it's weird, I know.[/font]

1) How was your race in China ?
Thanks to a few missing fast guys and a consistent race, I exceeded my expectations.

2) We are going to Bahrain for the next race. What is your expectations ?
Bold predictions:
1. McSendit gets bored and decides to win using only first gear
2. Full wet race in a place that averages 2.8 in of rainfall per year
3. Someone accrues so many penalties that they are disqualified AND deported from the Middle East.

3) What kind of weather you prefer in a race ? Clear ? Rain ? Mix Weather ?
I like it dry, and it seems to me like this game leans too heavily on wet conditions in dynamic weather mode.

2nd place! No complaints here. It was a challenging race in the wet and it's a circuit I don't really enjoy, so I'm very pleased to get past it and pick up 18 points.

Now we're talking! I really like this track. It feels like a proper racetrack and flows really well. Its not very challenging, except maybe turn 11 which will bite if you look at it funny, so it's fun to get into a groove and just run some laps. I won't have much time to practice this week so I'm leaning on my past experience on this circuit to hopefully get another top 5 finish.

3) What kind of weather you prefer in a race ? Clear ? Rain ? Mix Weather ?

I prefer dry just so the cars can run at their max potential. Races are about the driver and not attrition. That said, these games have always had a lot of rain for some reason, and I got pretty good at it early on since I mostly played career mode at 50% or even 100% distance with dynamic weather.

Went quite well, finished 2nd place, wasn't too happy with my qualifying time couple mistakes in the 2nd sector.  I just wish I pit the same lap mcsendit did instead of going on for another lap, was side by side before the pit stops and came out 2.5 seconds back after my pit stop then my pace on the mediums wasn't as strong as his.

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

This race is going to be interesting from a strategy standpoint.  Hoping for the win but will be happy as long as I stay out of trouble with no extra pit stops.

I love when there's rain in races, really mixes up everyone and tyre wear isn't as consistent between everyone so not everyone pits the same lap which really mixes things up.

It didn’t really go too well. I missed qualifying and had to jump into a random car. For some reason it put me in a torro Rosso starting in the midfield, so I did the honest thing and paused for around a lap to let everyone by. Then, coming out of the snail section, I was coming along the left side of a Ferrari, who did not “all the time leave a space,” but no hard feelings.

Well I’ve done quite well in time trials, but that’s been a usual occurrence every race so far. I just need to actually finish the race for once.

I prefer dry weather, but I actually seem kind of quick in full wet weather from what it seem

Quali - P4
First off I have to give a massive apology to Forza.  I was following Mcsendit and he was going slow on his outlap which is fine.  However it was so slow that I was wondering if I should pass.  During this time I checked on the mini map at the last second and Forza was there on a hotlap. 

I tried to move to the right but I am sure I screwed him up.  Then he ran into Mcsendit.  I am happy he still managed poll luckily so he didn't need the lap, but that was really a rookie mistake that I never should have made...

Race - P4
My start was ok however it looked like there was carnage behind.  I had to hold off a Haas for a few laps on the first stint but the drivers ahead got away. 

I was able to make a one stop strategy work, however Aero caught me on the M tires and I had to hold him off for a number of laps until he finally got me with 2 laps to go.  We had an awesome battle, but best of the season so far.  Hats off to him. 

Cam was catching on a 2 stop strategy but fell just short.

Nice job to the guys on the podium I wanted that P3 so bad but just couldnt make it work!
