Best Race drive of the season -@lemon from the back to win in Australia.
Gentleman of the season -@ms20 He wanted to give up his 3rd place at Monaco because of the lag issue he had – he was in a different place on our screens to where he was on his. (can I just add that everyone seemed to have been mentioned for this award – well done everybody!)
Moment of the Championship-
Battle for 2nd closing up after insane India.

Be interested to see if this stays the same next season!
@mrgrieves – I don’t create a party anymore for races so you can create your own team party before qualifying starts.
- if everyone else wants a 100% final race at Belgium, then I will include it… If not we could always have endurance series of races??
@ljkobrien – I see your point in regards to combining first and last in each team to level the playing field. The only problem i see is if newcomers join, then it messes up the system… I also think that some would want to stay as teammates if possible i.e. Strunk and infernojim.
F1 2011 or 2012?
Seems mostly everybody has moved to the new game.. So we will use f1 2012 for season 3. There seems to be some issues in regards to the tyre scaling…. I think it might be an idea to increase the race distance to perhaps 60% or 70% to counter this??? Otherwise everyone will end up 1 stopping and how boring is that? Perhaps we could bring the start time forward to 20:00 Uk time?? But if that isn’t convenient we could keep it as it is? Let me know.
A full 20 race season?
Seems most if us want to experience a whole season.. So we will for season 3… We will increase the number of dropped scores to 4 or 5 and create gaps in the calendar to break it up a bit eg Christmas. Let me know if there are any Mondays you can’t make and I’ll take this into account when I create the calendar.
Get the feeling that f1 2012 will bring the field closer together.., and stop lemon from winning :-)
I think we could look to possibly start on the last Monday of October… Let me know if this ain’t good for you.
I would like to see more teamwork next season- so dust off those headsets! Teams could create private parties in the game for discussing strategy, when each other is pitting, sharing setups etc. Need to have a think about some sort of reward system for the best team at each race…
I’ll lock this forum and create a new forum and wiki by the end of the week.. Then we can choose teams, discuss rules etc.
3rd Sprint race championship
If you are all free next Monday (or another day if better for everyone) then how about we get together for another sprint championship?
This would be a good way of testing the online aspect of the new game so we don’t have any issues for the main championship. It also would help everyone decide which car they would like to drive for next season.
Let me know if you can make it.. Although can we all please calm down in regards to pushing everyone off at the first corner….
EDIT – actually might be better if you all give me dates you are busy up until the weekend of the 27 October so we can eliminate these days and include everyone in this sprint championship.
