1) Round 4 we head to Russia, how you do like this track?
0/10 Pls No.

2) Last week we had a wet Qualification. How do you like driving in wet weather conditions on this game?
I actually really like it, its fun, nice and slidy!

3) After the first 3 races, how would you rate your performance thus far?
6/10 I feel i can get a more higher result but it is my weakest part of the season until Austria so hoping to improve then and just stay out of trouble keep getting a couple points here and there.

Pre-Race Interview:
1) Round 4 we head to Russia,  how you do like this track? 
   -I have fun on this track, however it is a lot more fun when the track is dry.  Can everyone pray to the sun god for a dry race this Wednesday :)   Thank you....

 2) Last week we had a wet Qualification.  How do you like driving in wet weather conditions on this game?

   -F1 2016 seems to handle a bit different in the wet then its predecessors,  and I am definitely slower with F1 2016 game in the wet, so I'm trying to figure out how to use short shifting and fuel management to get my wet weather tyres to stick a bit better in order to be more competitive, but again, this will take some time on the track practicing using TT and the (Quick Race-50%-Master AI combination) in order to update my set-up for both dry and wet weather racing, not to mention what tyre strategy I will use in the real race.  However, like Jerome said, the TT braking points, overall speed and handling of your car is different than when we go online to qualify and then race, thus I have to take that into account as well.  Also, I would like to say GOOD LUCK to everyone this coming Wednesday 8-)  

 3) After the first 3 races, how would you rate your performance thus far? 

    -Not very good really.  I had to pull out of the last race due to medications I had to take starting at 5:00 pm, and the race started at 6:00 pm my time so the medication caused increased drowsiness and then nausea little later.  Okay, so the point spread going into Russia is tight, so I hope my set-ups along with a little more practice than normal will keep me were I am in the drivers championship.  I have to say that there are a lot more fast/competitive drivers this year than normal, so I have to approach each driver with the same strategy as I would when approaching the fast guys, however I have to had the chance to get close to the fast guys so far, and maybe never will, lol.  It is a lot of fun and challenging because of this increased competition not to mention a full grid of drivers so far this season!

1) Round 4 we head to Russia,  how you do like this track?
- Absolutely love it! Prefer that it be dry but even with rain, I'll enjoy it.

2) Last week we had a wet Qualification.  How do you like driving in wet weather conditions on this game?
- I found out that I am quicker in wet conditions than some who are quicker in dry. Qualified in the top 10 for the first time. Might be my single advantage I think... well not against nickthequick.  ;)

3) After the first 3 races, how would you rate your performance thus far?
- I would say average, first time racing in F1 2016 im finishing in the top 10 almost consistently. First race, i made it to 6th because of a good pit strategy, even with penalties. 2nd race i was knocked out early from finishing high because of an over eager driver in turn 2, followed by poor decisions and bad racing etiquette. I thought race 3 would be a nightmare for me, but i ended up doing well with consistent driving. Only went off the track a little bit 3 times but i stayed steady on my lap times and stuck to my pit strategy even though i had a damaged front wing half the race (two times!). I have a chance at possibly finishing in the top 5 at the end of the season if i keep my consistency up.

Pre-Race Interview:
1) Round 4 we head to Russia,  how you do like this track?
This is probably one of my least favorites on the calander.  At least the corner cutting rules are strict here on the PC league because this can be a corner cutting fest.

2) Last week we had a wet Qualification.  How do you like driving in wet weather conditions on this game?
I do like how the Wet Physics are in this game, definitely better than the previous one that is for sure.  I still think they need to work on the transition periods though.

3) After the first 3 races, how would you rate your performance thus far?
So far so good.  I almost gave the race away last week due to speeding in the pits, but likely China is one of my best tracks so I had the pace to recover.

I would like to comment on your statement regarding Russia as being a corner cutting feast.  You are right on the mark on that one.  It is so easy to accidentally cut corners on this track even if you don't intend to do so.  With another full grid, this race could be very interesting to say the least:)

No video this week. Terrible race day. I would like the officials to discuss a policy for reserve drivers. An example is screen them and test out their ability to race and make sure their settings are proper. We had a reserve driver continuously talking throughout the qualifier which was VERY distracting. (He needed to check his settings before the race.) Also, some new reserve drivers were too aggressive and pushed me into another car in front severely damaging both my front wings. (He needs to be screened for driving ability to race properly. Like be approved by 5 or so FULL TIME drivers being allowed to join a race. this means he knows how to brake and knows proper racing etiquette.) I know accidents happen but it seems like all the problems i experienced right away were because of the new reserves drivers. I know this feels like it would push away newcomers but it would improve the quality of the race. Its frustrating that I practice for hours only to be taken out in the first 4 laps. I would be okay with it if it was from proper racing, but these are things that can be prevented. China was more or less a good race for everyone because it was all FULL TIME drivers, now all of a sudden the Russia race is ruined by inexperienced reserves.

Also noticed that a person by the name of "HandyCabbage" who was in the race but is NOT on the signup page. This raises a question, a big one!

I agree with some of what you are saying, but let me just say this. This season, I am a first time driver as well. I have only done a couple online races in F1 games and never been in a league. After this race, I will be in the top 10 for the drivers' championship. With that said, I agree that there should be some sort of vetting system for people that just really don't know how to drive or put in any effort. I would suggest recording the race, then submitting the incident to the stewards. Then if this happens maybe 2 or 3 times with the same guy, he would need to be removed from the league or at least a temporary ban. Then when the temp ban is over, he can have a test practice race or something like that.

I'm sorry to hear about your race tho man. I hope the next one is better for you!  :)

Did anyone get kicked from the game other than me? I thought it could have been me that caused the game to freeze, but after I got the Steam error and was kicked, I could still hear people talking, and the game had not started yet, so I don't think it was me??? I hope everyone had a great race that got to race.

Indeed do not put all reserve drivers in the same boat, I know a lot of them I've race with who are super clean. Also, don't worry that if you submit an incident to the stewards, it will be evaluated by the stewards. If a driver got a lot of penalty, we will call a meeting with the stewards to maybe even ban the driver.

Well i wouldn't blame the reserves either , all of them have raced with us in earlier editions of the game .
We have a lot of new drivers for this season , even if they have regular status , they are still new to the league plus we have a full grid which complicates things a bit .
The season is still pretty young  , people will learn about other drivers driving
You’ll come to know who to be careful around and who you can go side by side with , regular driver or reserve …

My 2 cents

Hey V6, sadly it was only you when we were waiting on the grid. I knew this would happen because that's Codemasters. When the loading takes forever it's because of someone lagging out. I know I had Steam disconnect during the practice session before the race so it could be due to the Steam servers. That is what I hate about Steam, if your Steam drops out even if it's P2P in F1 games you still disconnect.
