Pre-Race Interview
1. Suzuka requires downforce in the first sector and speed in the long back stretch. How are you going to balance your setup? Will you have to make compromise?
2. Are you going to watch the winter olympic 2018? Which discipline are you following.
3. Who is your main opponent this season and why?

There is more time to be lost in the twisty bits than there is to be gained in the fast bits. I am shooting for something in the middle that I can balance through the turns and not create too much drag down the straights.


2. Are you going to watch the winter olympic 2018? Which discipline are you following.

No...

3. Who is your main opponent this season and why?

The main opponents are my teammates and practice partners. My teammate is proving to be the better racer currently. My inconsistency on track is keeping the B driver on the team. Matt's outright pace may be a tick slower but he is consistently finishing better than I am.

Sadly, I will not be able to attend the race tonight ... all the luck for Francisco who will be the only representative of the team.
Have a good race!

I think is important not to lose time in the first half of the circuit, it is a very technical circuit, very easy to ruin your race in any moment.

Nope, but I hope to Canadians the best :)
3. Who is your main opponent this season and why?
Without any doubts: my self. Doing a clean race (like I did in Daytona) is my goal, at least for this first season.

Ok...after watching the replay it still wasn't intentional but I'll certainly understand if Fransico feels the need to protest it. I had others watch so that it was my just my view on it. They were of the same opinion but Dany and Jerome can have a look at it if need be.

The racing was good tonight. It was close and fast for a number of laps. That's not the way I would have liked to gain the position.

It's the second race in which you hit me. In Daytona you had a broken car, you lost a lap with the leader and instead of let me a pass in the oval sector, you didnt lift the throtle and forced me to take the turn 1 outside causing a spin.Today in the spoon you put the car where there is no place and hit me and anothr spin. I lost 2 positions and important points for the team championships. I ready made the report

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I know it was not intentional. But it is not an excuse. It was a mistake, and cost me positions and points in the fight for the team championship. Until lap 12 it was a great race. Congratulations to Benjamin (again)  :( and to Nick and Matthew for the podium achieved.-[/font]

The first 11 laps you guys were pulling a car to a car and half on the exit. I just ran a tighter line on the entry to try to get myself more track on exit in an effort to not let that gap open on the exit. It worked but it appears in the video that your exit that lap wasn't as strong as the previous laps.

That one is not gonna get blamed on me. There was plenty of room and however unfortunate I would have given you the next corner.

Here is my take on it Francisco had to check up due to the car ahead of him car washed out a little he had to recover and Kenny was in the gas and just underestimated the closing rate. BUT he could of hit the brake pedal. However we know that is downhill and that might have washed his car up into Francisco anyway. Have not talked to Kenny yet just watched the replay.Kenny and myself have been racing together for many years he runs it clean and has no intent on wrecking people...now me and him have a problem sharing the same corner
