This is nice not having to answer my own questions! :D
1) This week we are at Belgium on the fast Spa Francorchamps.  How do you like this track?
I like this track a lot.  It has a very good flow and high speeds with some iconic corners!

2) This is the last race of season 11. How did you like this season?
This has been a fun season for me, and my first Championship so I cannot complain!  I am happy that the new comers to the league have been participating in all the races and it seems like their pace keeps improving so I think it will be fun upcoming year!

3) Did you already pre-purchased F1 2017? If not, are you planning to buy it soon?
I just did the other day.  I am definitely on the hype train as it really looks like you can push these cars hard, so it should be a lot of fun!

1) This week we are at Belgium on the fast Spa Francorchamps.  How do you like this track?
It is probably my second favorite track of the season (behind Silverstone). I love it even tho im not very fast on it.

2) This is the last race of season 11. How did you like this season?
I really did enjoy this season. It was first racing league for any game. I had played in a lot of serious leagues for other games such as COD or CSGO in the past so i was familiar with competitive gaming but this is probably the most fun i have had in any of them. Mainly due to the non-toxic and nice community.

3) Did you already pre-purchased F1 2017? If not, are you planning to buy it soon?
I pre-purchased it just a few days after it was announced

Pre-Race Interview:
1) This week we are at Belgium on the fast Spa Francorchamps. How do you like this track?
I think it is a great track. I just wish that I had time to practice it, so I doubt I'll do very well.

2) This is the last race of season 11. How did you like this season?
I liked the season. I think I enjoyed last season better and I was sad I had to miss so many races. I'm looking forward to next season (even if I feel a little intimidated by the no assists rule).

3) Did you already pre-purchased F1 2017? If not, are you planning to buy it soon?
I actually didn't realize it was coming out so soon. The release date snuck up on me. But, I pre-ordered it at the end of last week.

As for the final race of the season, I was not able to find the pace I had in TT, the car just felt like it would not turn in enough and did not have enough grip.  It worked well for dark though as he was about .5 faster than me, in practice and maybe in the race as well.


I was lucky to put it on pole but the lap should have been beaten by someone, at least by Dark.  As the lights went off I went too conservative again and let Dark get on my outside.  We were going 2 wide into Eu Rouge so I had to lift, this let Plama and Zephyr get passed me as Plasma was barely able to keep the car together.  Into the braking zone Atomic was on my outside.  I tried to hold my line the best I could but it looks like he had some contact on my back wheel.

After that Plasma understeered on the kink before the long straight.  I did as well but luckily I was able to gather it up and nearly miss him.  From there I had to catch Zephyr and Dark.  I was in good slipstream and was half a car length pass Zephyr on the outside.  He out braked himself and let me back to P2.

Dark jumped into the pits and I was slowly catching but it started to spit rain as he did.  This compromised him and he had to do another stop.  In the intermediate conditions, I was able to pull a very nice gap until I came up on a backmarker that was on slicks!!!!  I moved to the outside but he must not of saw me and went for his racing line and there was contact and I lost about 12 seconds of my 19 second gap!!

As the rain let off  Dark was pretty close but we had to double stack.  He was about .3 faster at that point, but the race was too far gone.  I am happy to take the win and happy that this game is done, TIME FOR 2017!!!

I know for sure that myself, Dark, Tron, Megaman do not but I am not sure for the rest.

Nice win Nick ! No luck again for me this season. Managed to do a 1.45.9xx in practice with you and Megaman but couldn't redo it in the real session.

I tried to make the "Webber on Alonso" move stick you lifted which helped, from there I was able to do a little gap but we were all expecting the rain in 20min or so after the start but lap 3 already spits of rain thats where I pitted and from there race was pretty over for me I had to do a 3 pitstop race versus 2 for all the others still managed to be P2 but the car felt so great in the dry and on the soft at the end I was putting quali laps.

Hopefully I'll get some luck in 2017 !!

Yea i really wish i had qualified on the SS not the S because i feel like i could of qualified top 2 (maybe even pole) if i did. The rain coming early really hurt my race. I qualified on the softs because the rain was supposed to come 20 minutes after the start of the race which meant everyone on the supersofts would have to come in for a pit stop before the rain and i would have been able to stretch out my tires for when i had to go to intermediates. Unfortunately the rain came only 5-10 minutes after the race started and it totally ruined any advantage i had and cost me because i was slower in qually and the beginning of the race because i opted for the harder compound. After i put on the intermediates i came out of the pits on lap 6 on the inters and in 6th place. After everyone had made their stop and i passed megaman on lap 10, i was in 3rd place. I had a very big gap in front of me and behind me for the rest of the stint of inters. By the time i came in to get off them on lap 16, my rears were at 75+ %. After going back to the softs tron slowly caught up to me. He was on my inside on turn 8 and he seemed to just spin out all of a sudden. I asked in the comms if we had made contact because it didnt look like it. Plasmaraider later told me after the race that when he was spectating Tron it looked like he just spun on his own but on Tron's screen he hit the back tires of my car. After that incident i had a 18 second gap ahead of me and behind me and i finished in 3rd place. 

It has a great season of racing guys and i want to thank the organizers and all the other drivers for making my first league racing experience awesome. See you all in F1 2017

Nick, are you going to start driving in cockpit cam from now on? Or was it just something for fun in the last race? Just curious.

If I only ran the PC league I probably would, but in testing 2017 on PS4, I can't use my super wide monitor on console, and to get the correct FOV so it does not feel like I am so far back I would only be able to see about 1/4 to 1/3 of the mirrors on most cars. 

I guess the answer is I am still deciding haha.

I feel like you can see the braking point and feel the car slipping much more in cockpit, however your sense of awareness of other cars is more difficult so it definitely a trade off.

The thing with the mirrors is totally true. Especially for cars like mercedes, u cant see the mirrors unless u go to a FOV greater than .25. At the point u arms are unnaturally long and weird. It is a big factor in what constructor im choosing for this season
