I could be in discussions with a potential teammate – I’ll let you know teams when we decide who to go for.
My calendar choices:
@vitreouschain not sure yet mate. Depends how much time we have. We’ll decide tomorrow!21st October 2013, 3:21 at 3:21 am #243290
Hello everyone! It’s been far too long, as you know I’ve been very busy with school. I’m actually around one month away from graduating. However as I’ll be employed by the United States government (Air Traffic Controller) and with the current state we’re in over here I should be in for a bit of a wait. The point I’m getting at is that I will likely be much more available for this upcoming season, so there you have it. I’m coming out of retirement! I’m looking forward to racing again and am feeling great about the new game. @MadDogMolloy when do you think the season will begin?
My Calender Choices:
3. United States
My Team Choices:
3. Toro Rosso
(As I have not been around much lately I’m very flexible with team choices. Just let me know where I should go)21st October 2013, 9:11 at 9:11 am #243291

Also waiting on both plus @lemon for your calendar choices.22nd October 2013, 16:53 at 4:53 pm #243295
Sorry guys. Had a busy busy weekend and couldnt have a proper go at the game till this afternoon. I like the racing and handling on this years game a lot more but dont feel very good at it. @DarrenArcher beat me at every practice session which is very concerning after we were so close last season.
We’ve agreed on a move of team too!
3. Red Bull
See you all on Monday night!22nd October 2013, 16:53 at 4:53 pm #243296
Hey guys!! Sorry for being late but had busy weekend and all that.
Finally though, I have my car and track choices, they are:
Also obviously @mrgrieves will be my team mate for this season.22nd October 2013, 19:47 at 7:47 pm #243297
Think that’s all us current drivers. I’ll publish the driver list when I get the chance. Newcomers can then see what’s available.
Just waiting on @lemon for his calendar choices – then I can count the votes and sort out the calendar. Only then will we know what the first race is. Hurry up Herbie!22nd October 2013, 22:18 at 10:18 pm #243298
Infernojim to take season 5 break.
The veteran of 4 seasons had talks with a Russian tycoon collapse meaning that he is being frozen out of the drivers market ahead of the new season. Infernojim was a regular in the early parts of season 4 before his sponsorship deal with the Ethiopian government spectacularly collapsed leading the Williams number 2 to miss most of the latter half of the season.
Frantic attempts to find new backers have proven fruitless and infernojim has taken the move to take a break from f1 in order to follow his second passion of skidoo racing!
Skeptics are calling this the end of the Finn’s long career with doubts about the 32 year olds motivation and commitment to the sport a claim which has neither been confirmed or denied by infernojim, who has been unavailable for interviews since the announcement.23rd October 2013, 12:46 at 12:46 pm #243299

Blimey @lemon you took your time! :-P
Ok so the votes are in. Here are the results:
Brands Hatch xxxx
Abu Dhabi x
No love for Malaysia, Bahrain, Silverstone, Singapore, Korea or Jerez.
So, those with less than two votes will be spread across the next three seasons, only appearing once. Got to say.. Shocked to see Silverstone, Suzuka and Hungary there – all staples on the calendar up until now.
Brands, Belgium, Brazil, Italy, Canada and India are locked in for Seasons 5,6 and 7.
Now we have a problem here. There are 3 spaces left and 4 circuits (Australia, Monaco, China and USA) are tied on 2 votes each. To help us decide which should be dropped, please could everyone state which of these is their least favourite track. I’m conscious that we’re only days away from the first race so voting will close at 5pm BST tomorrow. The calendar will be confirmed Shortly after. If you want to practice for the first race it’ll probably be Bahrain or Australia (depending on if Australia survives the vote).23rd October 2013, 19:06 at 7:06 pm #243302
My vote for least favourite is USA23rd October 2013, 19:20 at 7:20 pm #243303
