1. How was your last week race at Sochi?
It was great for me. My best finish yet this season. I have improved with each race so lets hope that continues.

2. What was your thoughts on the Canadian GP and what are your expectations for Baku?
I really enjoyed the Canadian GP except when Verstappen's engine blew :'(  . Not that excited for Baku.

3. We will be back in France for the 2018 F1 Season. What is your favorite France's circuit? Have you ever race at Circuit Paul Ricard?
I have never seen a French GP and have not raced on that circuit.

4. Where's Nickthequick pre-race interview!?
Hopefully nick is as slow in the race as he is in putting up the pre-race interview ;)

1. How was your last week race at Sochi?
I was in Sweden for a science conference last week.  I'm excited to be back for Spain!
2. What was your thoughts on the Canadian GP and what are your expectations for Baku?
Usually I ask this question after each race, but I was unable to watch the race myself until yesterday.  I thought it was a good one.  The Mercedes guys did well.  It was unfortunate that Max's engine blew.  I'm glad Haas scored a point, but that was mostly good fortune.  I hoped they would be better this year than they are.
3. We will be back in France for the 2018 F1 Season. What is your favorite France's circuit? Have you ever race at Circuit Paul Ricard?
I actually know nothing about the French circuits.  I'm relatively new to F1.  But, it is nice to know that F1 is returning to one of its classic locations.

1. How was your last week race at Sochi?
Still recovering from boredom tbh... hate that damn place.

2. What was your thoughts on the Canadian GP and what are your expectations for Baku?
Pretty decent race, it feels the longer the seasons goes on the drivers are becoming more comfortable with the cars and learning where and when moves are now possible, for Baku all I want is Vettel to crash. Oh and more hilarious Alonso radio!

3. We will be back in France for the 2018 F1 Season. What is your favorite France's circuit? Have you ever race at Circuit Paul Ricard?
Never watched or seen any races in France, so .. tour de France. go bikes!

4. Where's Nickthequick pre-race interview!?
I think he's still recovering from not actually always winning a race this league ... poor guy :)

1. How was your last week of racing in Sochi?
- a race in which the tires helped a lot. Getting out of the back without major losses and luck was crucial to reach some points.
 
2. What was your thinking about the Canadian Grand Prix and what are your expectations for Baku?
Baku has only a straight line, rest is taking care of the walls. I hope to count on the ability and lucky not to lose my car and score again.
 
3. We will return to France in the F1 season of 2018. What is your favorite circuit in France?
  Have you ever been on the Paul Ricard circuit?
"Remember a little Brands Hatch." I already had the opportunity to race on this Kart circuit. Funny.

It stunk that I wasn't able to race much because my game crashed, but here is the video of the first lap.  I barely escaped being involved in the crash between Paul, Zephyr, and Plasma.  Enjoy!

My perspective of the race, unfortunate crash at the end that i have only myself to blame, and also a strategy mistake (im getting good at strategy mistakes haha), but there was a lot that needs to be fixed in the races to come, Monaco will be a nightmare if people dont use a little more caution. Always remember THERE IS NO RACING A 100% RACE PACE, THAT IS WHEN ACCIDENTS HAPPEN, ALWAYS RACE AT 90-95% RACE PACE SO YOU CAN BE CLEAN AND CONSISTENT AND AVOID ACCIDENTS WHEN THEY HAPPEN. That applies to all drivers, experienced and amateur, i made the mistake of pushing too hard at the end of the race and it cost me. Race starts at 3:20

This last race had a lot of lag issues. Someone was lagging so much that they were taking up the whole track and it was too dangerous to pass, I think that person was the cause of the major accident at the beginning of turn 3. I think we need to reintroduce the formation lap at the start to get everyone synced before the race because it's always the beginning of the race with sync issues.

Also, during SC laps you guys need to keep your pace up. We dipped down so low that I could have overtaken 10 positions without a penalty. It reached 2.3 behind the delta time for me. I will pass you all next time if you don't keep your pace up. Also STOP brake checking on the straights during a SC or VSC, it's hard to avoid these because as it goes on, the braking gets harder and I always get a damaged wing from this even if I stay to the side to try to avoid these incidents. There needs to be a MAJOR penalty for whoever causes these caterpillar effects. I'm not going to point out who it was this time but I'm sure you know who you are (between position 4-7 of the first lap). By major penalty, I mean major deduction of points because this can be classified as dirty tactics.

I was taken out of the race yesterday because of a dirty move (cut in front of me and brakes hard and they didn't follow their racing line like they should have) dirty tactics to purposely damage someone's wing should be heavily penalised. Accidents happen but this move isn't an accident because it can be avoided. Funny how I was arguing with this same person in Project Cars because of their dirty driving

I agree entirely! You practice all week to have a good race only to be taken out by someone who plays too much single player and has a habit of doing risky moves. Everybody needs to chill and only make a move when you're certain you can pass. Look at my China race as an example of how to race and pass. I was proud of almost everyone in that race because majority of the people I raced with did a good job being careful and made a move when it was safe, the last few races though, everyone was way too eager and tries to make a pass as soon as they catch up to you. Just wait for your moment. Pushing hard 100% of the time won't get you into the top 5, safe and consistent driving can. In my first race I started in 17th and finished 6th because I kept out of trouble and kept my lap times steady. Especially in a race with multiple put stops, you might end up in 3rd place just but driving safe and not ruining your tires and taking one less put stop than everyone else. Appreciate the strategy this game gives a you, it's not Need For Speed

That is not a good excuse even worse if you already knew you were lagging. Why risking everything into one corner and not take the time to build up your move instead of rushing it ?

I was behind Lucas for a good 2-3 laps and I was massively quicker but didn't risk anything because he was lagging in front. I made sure to make a move that I was 100% sure it wouldn't affect my and his race.

There was so many incidents in this race, lag definitely didn't help out but we will need to take action for sure. I believe there's a lot of people with really bad connections coming from region too far away and the netcode doesn't like that. There's so many random driver dropping, I feel sorry for DroidKat who did a nice qualifying lap.

Please everyone, take your time to build up your moves, don't try to win the race in Turn 1 at the start. Also if you are reserve driver, it's ok to be competitive but be careful to avoid taking out people in the race. We are allowing reserve drivers to race and it has been multiple incidents involving reserve now.

I agree with Darklol about lag issues. It cost me at least 2-3 positions. We had that problem before and it was cause by someone with smaller connection speed and ping problem. We're gonna ask for a speed test from everyone for season 12. We love full grid but we're gonna have to set a limit on the speed and ping to try to have a better synch for everyone. Again, make sure you are connected on the New York USA server on steam, that you have nothing running in your background that use internet connection, if you are on a home network, maybe limit the wi fi connections or activities during the race and its not recommend to race on Wi Fi signal, you will have a ping issue for sure.

I agree with the Safety Car point u made. Someone in front of me on the third lap of the safety car all of a sudden slammed on their brakes on the straight (i assume to heat up their brakes) and i hit the back of them and lost my front wing cause of it. This person slamming on their brakes also cause the person behind me to hit me and lose their front wing as well. IF YOU NEED TO HEAT UP YOUR BRAKES, DO NOT SLAM ON THEM, USE A LITTLE GAS AND BRAKES AT THE SAME TIME. There should not be ANY point during SC when you are going hard on the brakes. It is supposed to be a slow, consistent pace around the track

Well this was probably my first trouble free race of the season. Fun race with lots of strategies. I always seem to get VSC right after driving past the pit entry with old tires. Quite frustrating as i'm thinking that is where my race was lost but that's racing. I wish the FIA would close the pit lane during VSC only. Also had a few corner cutting penalties but overall an exciting race. Nice to be leading for a while after safety car.

I'm not accepting this, we were in qualifying and I was on a flying lap with quite a significant time difference to my previous lap. I don't care if you were on one too and were faster than me, you were behind and should recognise I was on one too. To even try to overtake someone on a flying lap is just bad etiquette and it cost me a couple positions on the starting grid. If you are behind a car you know you will catch on a flying lap you should leave more room in front of you. It wasn't even the last flying lap opportunity (for me it was I was on my last set of softs I could use). Why you are even so close to a car on the final chicane while knowingly lagging is a mystery to me. Especially considering you said you know the rules which state both of these things.

When it comes to lag, Im from the UK and know it won't be perfect and I would rather lose a position easily than take two of us out of a race, if you are running with some lag it means adapt, don't race like you always have because it won't work.

Deadzero how the HELL it's legal to overtake during a safety car when everyone is bunched up is ridiculous everyone was in their positions and you just flew past me and another. I could have done that too but if we all do it then it becomes a problem and potentially a crash. Makes it even worse knowing my wing came off hitting you. If it's a glitch in the game which allows people to pass UNDER A SAFETY CAR. It should be considered as cheating as it is obviously not suppose to be like that.
