@bradley13 Got it. So basically this is the Zozulya rule lol. You mentioned if a driver gets banned, but what if a driver gets injured? First you said ‘unless under force majeur’ and then said only if they get banned. I would consider an injury to be force majeur.
@redmist Don’t jump to conclusions just yet. :)7th August 2017, 17:34 at 5:34 pm #347742
@bradley13 Just to be clear: From 2018 onwards would a driver be allowed to begin the season in a junior series and then switch to FV? As in they would stop racing in the junior series midseason upon promotion.7th August 2017, 1:05 at 1:05 am #3477157th August 2017, 1:03 at 1:03 am #347714
Good result for us, a very surprising podium. Zozulya drove a perfect race: good overtaking at the start, good pace to pull away, and no mistakes which allowed him to capitalize on attrition.
Hutchinson made a rare mistake, but only just missed out on points.
Ellington pulled off what might be the best overtake of the season: three wide around the outside at T1-2!
Also I genuinely feel bad for Westwood, Schnyder had that win IMO. But even if he didn’t it would have been a brilliant double podium.
It was a fairly exciting race that was full of overtaking and was mostly clean until that huge death ball at parabolica.4th August 2017, 17:40 at 5:40 pm #347683
I think this Italian V-Prix is going to be great with how close the teams are on pace and the unusually hot weather predicted for Sunday’s race.30th July 2017, 16:42 at 4:42 pm #347195
Congrats to @theawesomefish on his first podium! The new teams from 2016 have really proven a lot of people wrong this season. At the start of the season I’m not sure if anyone would have predicted any of us to get a podium, much less all of us!
Zozulya had a great drive to come from 16th to 7th, I was impressed with his race pace. He needs to up his qualifying game though. Hutchinson did quite the opposite: he over performed in qualifying and then didn’t quite have the pace in the race. I was disappointed that he let Kinnumen by with a few laps to go, but overall I am pleased with a 5th and a 7th. That’s one of FIRST’s better team results this season.
Simon had some really dodgy driving entering the pits. Then apparently he thought he could drive through the wall lol.
Also congrats to Downton on winning their 8th race in a row, that’s an impressive feat and a new record.29th July 2017, 19:34 at 7:34 pm #347072
@redmist I don’t mean to say that I think it is ‘right’, I was just trying to say that it could have been expected.29th July 2017, 18:53 at 6:53 pm #347068
@redmist Yeah, pretty much everybody uses the Contracts page to look at deals other teams have finalised and mainly to see the contract situation for a particular driver.
In regards to a lot of people knowing about your dealings: people gossip. It happens in real life racing, it happens in FV, and it happens in literally everything in life. That’s how humans work. The more people you contact about a deal, the more likely outsiders are to find out about it.29th July 2017, 13:25 at 1:25 pm #347048
A top job there by Hutchinson, great stuff!
A bit disappointing for Zozulya, but maybe he can make up some places on an alternative strategy.
Overall, I’m surprised to see that the grid isn’t that mixed up compared to most wet qualifying sessions we’ve seen.21st July 2017, 23:06 at 11:06 pm #346614
Not an encouraging practice for us with North Star, Holmqvist, and Westwood all faster than us.17th July 2017, 5:01 at 5:01 am #34638315th July 2017, 18:02 at 6:02 pm #34619315th July 2017, 17:17 at 5:17 pm #34619015th July 2017, 13:55 at 1:55 pm #346181
