Can we skip Russia?? Its a terrible track! The track limitations are bonkers!! Why is the finish line at the exit of a turn?! Only a dumb Russian would design a race track like this. *in Russian voice* "I make good fast track, but I must f*** them. I make finish line at end of turn! But wait, I must do more, I give 10 second penalty if they go just a 'little' bit too far by accident. Now track complete and I watch world burn. Dasvidanya!!"

I agree! This circuit is quite tricky. For me the main issue I have is that I never see turn 7 coming. I always forget that it is closer than expected....

1) How was your race in Bahrain ?

Wasn't there unfortunately.

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

Not too high. I'm having a hard time with this track (very Shanghai-like). This might be an hour of constant struggle :p

3) Which track that is not in F1 racing would you like to run with an F1 car ?

Not too sure...I'll say the full Nürburgring. That would be quite cool to do a race in this one (quite challenging as well...)

Very good, 4th place with good battles with piboye and deadzero. Should have been 5th if piboye didn't had a time penalty.

It's not a track that i Like so lets say top 7 will be fine. It Will be the corner cut festival!

Not too bad. Just got into the points...this year, I'll take it.

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

Seems like I'm in the minority here, but Russia is one of my favorite tracks. I'll still be slow and fighting for a top 10 though.

3) Which track that is not in F1 racing would you like to run with an F1 car ?

Probably the full Nurburgring!

Yea...this is why you DON'T do that... It ruined my race trying to avoid your stationary car in the middle of the main straight just after the curve...  I'll post the video of the crash for you, thanks a lot.

Deadzero this is very bad man. You blew the race of Tron. The stewards needs to give you something for doing this.

Everyone, if you are not having fun and want to retire just go to the pits with your car and retire from the session. Its so simple. Everyone is now warned about this. No one at any time should crash their car on purpose.

For those who know F1, just remember Nelson Piquet Jr & Alonso !

Im sorry. I didnt know my car flung out onto the track like that. I guess it turned out after i hit the wall. I went off the track right at the start of the turn on the left side, thought it would hug the wall because of the turn.

the problem was the cars werent ghosting. i hit trons car because i was looking backwards defending against piboye and i did look infront again (less than 100m away) but i didnt have anywhere to go because piboye was on my right and there was not enough room on the left. There was also no way i could slow down in time, by the time i realized there was a car on the straight i was only 50m away going 180+mph. i had to just hope he would ghost but he didnt.

I don't accept that at all...that might be the most half-a##ed apolo-xuse I've ever heard for an incident like this.  First off, how many times have Lacadien and Dark talked about the correct way to quit in the middle of a race?  Too many times for me to count.  So let's say they hadn't, you intentionally stuff your car just after a top speed corned with with absolutely no runoff for a long ways, no saftey car...what could you have possibly thought was going to happen?  Hug the wall?  What does that even mean?  You thought you would have your car magically land in the only half-car-width piece of runoff on the entire main straight?  Ridiculous...

Yeah man, I guess it did "turn out" after you hit the wall...
