1. I haven't had the chance to speak with my teammate yet. Hopefully at this race.
2. Well, everyone has impressed me with how clean the racing is. The guys regularly at the front are mighty impressive.
3. I try to come up with my own setup for each track as I like to learn how the car reacts. Most of the changes that I have been making are on the wings and getting the high speed aero balance just right. This car has so little mechanical grip that you need to keep the speed up.

Hi,

1 - Do you talk strategy with your teammate before a race?
- Well we try to exchange setup that will help us.

2 - Wich driver as impressed you the most this season?
- Everyone impressed me, 3 races, 3 différents winners and some really nice clean races.

3 - How much time do you take to tweak your race setup?
- Usually I will try to find existing setups and practice until I find one that suits my driving style. So lets say I will use the wednesday practice to tweak my setup, and sometimes will setup a practice for all.

Ya Carsten, why'd you hit me man?? :) I got some serious air!

Haha it's racing though... As long as we improve and learn from it, it's all good.

Hey Dany, did you get a black flag when you cut the chicane passing me? (Not that it would have mattered in the end). Looked like a Hamilton move for sure :p

Good battle, you are one consistent driver.

Yes, I got a 1.5 secs slowdown, but I was able to deal with it within the 40 secs allowed.  I slowed down earlier at the hairpin, and cut 1.2 secs of it.  After that, I took more slowly the hairpin, and it was gone when I got on the back straight.

For my race, didn't listend to me when I said that cold tires and cold track, means slippery on the 1st lap.  After watching the replay, I got on the curbs on the 1st turn and that is why I spun.  I put the car in reverse to get out out the track and avoid contact.  I thought that I put it back the in 1st, but it was still in revese, so I pressed the gas to get back on the track, but I went backwards into the fence damaging my rear wing (dumb me).  Lost alomost 4 secs a lap, so I decided to pit to take my fast repair.  After that I was up to speed and was able to get back finnishing 3rd, 33 secs behind1st.  Had a good battle for like 10 laps with Andrew before I was able to pass him...

I didn't know that we had 40 seconds to clear the penalty! That would have helped me the numerous times that I over-zealously passed Eric and cut the corner. Good to know :)

Like I said, you were relentless while catching me. Every little mistake I made, you took 0.5 out of me. Very impressive.

Hi,

Thanks for yopur kind words, but all I can say is, practice, practire, practice.  Honestly, after my pit stop, I was like 5 secs behind you ans I tought that you had to pit, but it seems not.  So after realising that, I started to push hard with 12-13 laps to go.

Yea I gave it to you once Andrew :D  was not going give it away a second time :p but I knew you were faster than me but I was going to make you earn it :p  hope I gave you plenty of room.

Best finish yet for me, I had a spin, and I never practiced entering pit road :oops:,  so when I pulled in I was very, very slow  :lol:.
On to Kansas :D

I'll just leave this here :) https://youtu.be/v8NfFbSEQ5Y

Looks like Tyler had a "flying"start!  That aside though, I notice something curious about your video.  Do you use trading paints?  I know Tyler and myself have a matching team paint scheme, but it clearly doesn't show in your video.  Or are we crazy and no-one sees it?

I cobbled together a couple highlights of my race.  Great race with Owen all the way.  Majority of the race with less than 1s between us, intense!  I give full credit to him for being super consistent on the track, and faster than myself in several corners.  I only got by with straight line speed.

I was tired and forgot to mention the final clip is the final lap of the race.
