Pre race questions:​

1. With recent news there could be a night race in New York City , which  fantasy destination would you like to see F1 visit in the future? A race around Westminster and over Tower Bridge in London? The streets of Tokyo? A purpose built circuit with the pyramids of Giza in the background? Wherever you want​

2. Three races in and how are you feeling about your championship so far and your chances for the rest of it?​

3. If you could pick your Season 15 car from throughout F1 history, what would it be (apart from the MasterCard Lola, obviously 😉)​

A London GP would be cool but I just really want to see turkey back on the calander.

2. Three races in and how are you feeling about your championship so far and your chances for the rest of it?

I'm pleased with my first 3 races. 3rd in the championship isn't what I was expecting before the season so that's nice to see. I feel I can keep scoring some good points and I'm aiming at least 1 race win.

3. If you could pick your Season 15 car from throughout F1 history, what would it be (apart from the MasterCard Lola, obviously 😉)

I'd chose the 2010 virgin racing car. I know it was slow but it was bloody Beutiful. I also really like the 2009 BMW and Toyota.

I think a London GP would be pretty cool, similar to the monaco one.

Not optimistic, ive already missed 2/3 races, and this season is so competitive that i think that is already too many, not to mention the fact Neyo already has a sizeable lead over most the field. However a positive is im driving at my best - I think i was unlucky not to win Bahrain, i definitely deserved a podium, also im almost certain i would have got a podium in Malaysia - it was one of my best tracks, and the 2 restarts i was in 2nd, and 4th at the time. SO gutted about that. My focuses are more on the constructors championship now, rather than the drivers championship.

I would say a night race around Las Vages apart from that nowhere else I think has enough street circuits already



2. Three races in and how are you feeling about your championship so far and your chances for the rest of it?
Started off well, leading the constructors (thanks to NeYo :p) Points in Baku and Bahrain and was running in the points in the first 2 Malaysia races and again in the 3rd one until the SC cost me any chance of points. Also in Bahrain I was in the leading group of 7 when the 2nd SC come out so 7th wasn't a false position in that race which is great. For the rest of the championship try and hold out and win the constructors although that will be a really hard task given Killer and Liam are extremely quick ​



3. If you could pick your Season 15 car from throughout F1 history, what would it be (apart from the MasterCard Lola, obviously 😉)
Jaguar or Minardi​

1. A Martian Grand Prix would be pretty cool, across Olympus Mons, or, more realistically, I'd like to see a street circuit in San Francisco.
2. Been pretty s**t to be honest! Bahrain it all fell apart at that second SC and Malaysia was just awful. I don't think I've had a worse race. Baku I got pole position and then lost the lead immediately after the Safety Car and just slipped back to fourth and just couldn't challenge the guys in front. I would have stayed there if it weren't for Mich getting a puncture and Cantera spinning. Been very poor so far
3. Brawn GP 2009. The livery is just amazing and it's literally a one of a kind in that they only ever produced one car. Although, I do love the BMW Williams cars from 01-03 sort of time, and the BMW Sauber from 2008. Any of those really

1. Wow, didn't expect such a question.
Maybe Paris streets would be nice or London.. some major city..


2. Three races in and how are you feeling about your championship so far and your chances for the rest of it?
I did the last 2 races and came in P9 both times with pure luck.

3. If you could pick your Season 15 car from throughout F1 history, what would it be (apart from the MasterCard Lola, obviously 😉)

Either the Ferrari F1 2004 or the Williams from start of 93 season :)

1. Would be interesting for the sole point of how tight it is in Southampton. Would be as difficult as Monaco or Macau. For a left field idea, somewhere like New Orleans. Bursting with life. Would have to stay away from Mardi Gras though. :)

2. FAAAAAANTASTIC! Could have scored in all 3 races but some fortune came my way.

3. Anything from 2007/08?
Any Jaguar, Orange Arrows, Danka Zepter Arrows? Those are beautiful.
Maybe pre-2006 Sauber?

1. GP of the Dales sounds good, around my local town :)

2. Always could be better, I want to be in a battle with someone but last place by miles all I can do I brake too soon cant get wheel settings right maybe.

3. Has to be the Jordan with the Yellow Hornet on it, like I race on iRacing in the Skip Barber series.

That was a exciting race. In hindsight, I should have gone for the US runs as would have been into the Top 10 but the SS run was great but decided early on to not run again as didn't check the weather.

Race was very promising and the first change to Intermediates got me into the top 10 with favourable pit positioning and the right call at the right time but my pace on the initial Intermediate stint was poor and I made a mistake in not pitting when the others did for Wets and made it a lap late dropping me to the back of the SC train. Full Wet stint was pretty quiet until another SC came out for the rain and I pitted for Intermediates and had a penalty at the time so served that immediately. Pushed as hard as I could but couldn't catch the train and pitted a lap too early for US and ended 12th.

Q - P14
Decided to up my wings given it was forecast rain for the race so that combined with a scruffy lap meant I was only 14th

R - DNF
Poor launch then Dave hit my right front wheel sending me left into the wall even before T1 giving me a damaged front wing. Caught back up passed a couple of cars before f1racer tapped the back of Dave and spun in the final chicane which put me in the wall and lost my wing. Rejoined last but 1 and decided to save fuel and hope for a SC which came. Just caught back up to the SC made a few more passes then another SC come out so I pitted for full wets which give me some positions and I was up to 10th. Lost a few places and got past Mike then meant I was 9th but tapped the wall and got a right rear puncture which dropped me to last so I pitted for dry tyres and it was way to early but I had nothing to lose but on my outlap and hit the wall under braking.

Really poor race from myself. Congrats to Mich on his win and Killer on his podium and my teammate NeYo on a podium and winning DoTD

Qualifying - 8th, i was very lucky my teammate told me it was going to rain early on, otherwise i wouldnt have realised, however i think had i gone onto US to start with i would have been fine anyway :).

Race - Overall an enjoyable race, pace was good throughout, and i felt i made perfect strategy call (along with killer) to stay out through the heavy rain on the inters, as it passed soon, however a 2nd safety car rewarded Carrex, and Michemery amongst others, otherwise i think me and killer would have been on for a 1 and 2, as others were a pitstop down effectively.

Another 4th place, lets hope i can get my podium round austria :)
