Pre Race Interview
1. How was your race in Monza? Pretty bad personally, i was involved in a lot of lag related incidents, unknown if it was mine or the car in front of me, and later was taken out in ascari when a williams dive bombed my inside as i was turning in and forced me onto a bad line, and i got on the curbing in the exit of ascari and lost control into a wall.
2. We are going to Mexico. How do you like this track? Im a big fan of mexico actually, the sector 2 chicanes are something that can prove a big challenge if not done correctly and can cause you to lose up to half a second if you dont get them right.
3. Are you gonna watch the first F1 race of the season March 26th? Unfortunately i wont i will be on vacation in San Francisco which will also cause me to miss next weeks race

1. How was your race in Monza?
Not Great. I'm not real fast there so I had a different strategy but the safety car ruined that. Then I was to fast in the pits and got a drive through. I should have done better.

2. We are going to Mexico. How do you like this track?
I really like the track. The flow is good and if you get the car balance right it's really fun to drive.

3. Are you gonna watch the first F1 race of the season March 26th?
YES - I will have to record most races because I won't stay up to watch but I won't miss a race all season.

1. How was your race in Monza?

Overall pretty good. I don't have great pace there, and qualifying was real bad, I had no confidence in the car. Was fighting it around the track for the most part. But I made it clean through the lap 1 incident and stayed clean after that. Will certainly not complain with the result as it is better than I was hoping for.

2. We are going to Mexico. How do you like this track?

I find it nice to have drive. Just keep a nice rhythm going and the fast laps seem to come. Looking forward to the race.

3. Are you gonna watch the first F1 race of the season March 26th?

Absolutely, I can hardly wait for qualifying! Hoping Ferrari shows up to play with the big boys this year!

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1. How was your race in Monza? I had a good qualifying but got hit pretty hard at the start incident , dropped last and managed to creep back to 5th so it was ok[/font]
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]2. We are going to Mexico. How do you like this track? I have no clue , just realized I never raced on that track [/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1. How was your ra[/font]
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I discovered something called "flashback" while practicing and it's making all the difference in the world - I was much more steady under braking as a result and that alone gained me a lot of time as my braking is my biggest weakness.  Monza is one of my worst tracks and I have never finished a race, I stuff it in the wall at ascari every time but this was one of my most solid races I have run, and I made the right call pitting under the safey car at the beginning.  Very pleased.[/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]2. We are going to Mexico. How do you like this track?[/font]
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I liked it a lot more when it was brand new, I get really bored on the straight, I think my teammate was dead on, there are a lot of places where it's so easy to lose a LOT of time, it's a good track, kind of like 3 in one which makes setup difficult, long lap, should be a fun race. [/font]

1. How was your race in Monza?
I failed to score points by not participating!

2. We are going to Mexico. How do you like this track?
Like patlessard, I'm not very familiar with this track.  I was able to turn in a few practice laps last night and overall I like the circuit.  I should just get faster during the race.

3. Are you gonna watch the first F1 race of the season March 26th?
Definitely!  I might not get to it until Sunday afternoon, but I'm excited.  I'm hoping Haas will be a solid midfield team and sneak into the points more often (instead of getting the dreaded 11th place consistently).  Magnussen should be a great addition.

4. As a new rookie to the series, what are your hopes?
I just want to get through the first few races cleanly and not be too far off the pace.  Scoring some points would be an added bonus!

Big apologies to Paul, i took you out that race in the 1st corner by accident, it felt very reminiscent of the China crash, b/c i had a Mclaren come up my inside and if i didnt dive out of the way i would have likely lost my front right wheel, sorry again!

Great shot of my race being ruined.  I'll post my onboard soon but it's too laggy to watch a full highlight or race...don't know why that happens (OBS), second time this season.

If you record your game with a higher framerate than the game, you often get this result. Per exemple, if you force your software to record at 60 fps and the framerate during the game is 45 FPS average, the video will be laggy. It could also be when you edit your video at a higher framerate than the game. The best is always to record or edit at a lower framerate than the framerate average of the game.

I recorded it the same way I always do, I think my computer is dying.  Here is the race start, it wasn't worth editing anymore because you can't legitimately watch it.

I apologize for being late. In Brazil we were in daylight saving time and the race was 11 pm, yesterday had already changed and started at 10 pm. Spindles adjusting. I'll be smart not to miss the next race.
