1. How was your race in Singapour?

Other than the obvious, it was really good. I snuck out pole position which made keeping my nose clean in T1 easy. Crazy Canuck and myself battled back and forth most of the race, with Tron filling my mirrors a whole lot as well. It was really disheartening to be in P1 and have my CPU lock up on me, and even more so that when the AI took over it immediately decided to go to the racing line whether Crazy Canuck was there or not.  Horrible luck for him to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I apologize again for the incident. 


2. We are going on the short and fast circuit of Redbull Ring. How do you like this track?

This is my first time here as well.  It seems OK, but I am not expecting to be as competitive as Singapore.  It seems difficult to get a good exit out of the hairpin, and carrying speed though some of sector 2 is tough as well. 


3. Do you test your internet connection often?

Not regularly unless I am having problems. I run a wired connection, and have actually tripled my speed since I submitted my speed test results.  My issues in the last 2 races have been hardware related with my CPU being unhappy with its overclock.  Although I could not replicate the problem in stress tests and in game testing, I dialed it back a bit and ran a more intensive stress test (x264) for several hours, and no issues. If it happens again, I am out of ideas.

1. Singapore was ... a disaster. A mix of driving mistakes, bad strategy decisions and victim of several accidents. A couple of people crashed so it helped me get some points, but the race was pretty disappointing.

2. Austria is one of my favorite track. Simple yes, but fast and challenging. It gives room for wheel to wheel action.

3. A couple times a year.

I left a pretty long recap after the race but in short, It went very well.

I like it, lots of time to prepare for corners, but I have a lot of trouble with it.  A lot of blind turns, I miss turn five and eight 19 out of 20 times, I overheat my tires too easily, I can't find any sort of balance under braking which is where I lose most of my time on every track.  One of the things I really like about it is that you can make legitimate passes at any corner on the track but I don't like how effective the drs is.  I'm looking forward to it.

Wanted to say sorry to crazycanuck for the contact in the formation lap. Glad you ended with the win.

Also a very big sorry again to falco bronzo.. I spun on the kerb and i brought you with me out of track.

Thanks for let me race last night, I was a bit rusty but had some good fights with many of you. I always try to be clean but sometimes things happens.. 

Mega.

I must say, you fight cleanly indeed! Some nice battling. I got a nice footage of both of us going side by side in the hairpin. That was awesome. But we know how it ended... Its just a mistake, you got on the grass and lost the rear end, I turned right to give you space; You drift right, I turned left to avoid you, you drift left and make contact with me. Maybe I should have backed off the let you regain control of the car before overtaking you, but everything happens so fast. Its just sad because Austria is one of the few track where I'm fast and I never achieved to do good. In season 8 I made a fool of myself trying a move on Bobino and ending crashing the car in the wall in the 2nd DRS zone... Dha!
