    The first two days of testing were disappointing for us. It feels good to be third in a session, even if we were on super-softs. I still don’t really know how we stack up to most of the other teams, but at least the car has potential.

    Also: @sirspuddington that’s a brilliant livery, I think it’s a massive improvement over 2016 and it’s one of the best on the grid IMO.

    @bradley13 Ok, then those speeds are probably supposed to be in MPH :p.

    It’s good to see Kannan GP up there again, although I’m not surprised. Ellington is a two-time V-Prix winner after all.

    Also, will fatal accidents be simulated? Daytona pack racing in open wheel cars going 240+ MPH is pretty much a death sentence.

    @bradley13 What oval were they running?

    @bradley13 I think that will be close to the running order. I think that switching Holmqvist and FIRST and then switching Franklin and DS would make it more accurate. Obviously we are both just speculating though.

    It will be interesting to see if Downton really have the pace that everyone is claiming. I really can’t wait for testing, particularly to see how competitive the ‘new’ (we aren’t really new anymore) will be.

    @keithcollantine That’s right! Your turn Keith.

    @keithcollantine That is a legitimate connection but I did specify in my post that it couldn’t be about the circuits themselves.

    Hint: There is another circuit that connects these circuits

    Good to see Kannan GP on top, I will be rooting for them in IndyVirtual.

    Ok, what is the connection between the following circuits that doesn’t have to do with the circuits themselves or the races that they’ve held:

    Estoril
    Adelaide
    Nurburgring
    Imola

    @theawesomefish All four of them have been allowed to start despite qualifying outside of the 107% rule.

    @pezlo2013 I think that is a beautiful livery! The new colors really liven it up a lot and the design fits the car well. The Swiss flags remind me of Rebellion, but they look good with how you incorporated them. The mountains on the engine cover look much better with the yellow background.

    @robocat You’re right, the shade of blue has changed. This is more of what I initially envisioned, I just didn’t get the color right last year.

    I just hope that the livery improvement will be matched with improved results on track.

    It’s FIRST’s first track-based launch, so I tried to get some good action shots.

    I hope you guys like the article and livery. I think the livery is an improvement upon last year’s.

    That North Star looks sharp again. I preferred the sidepods on last year’s car, but the rear wing on the 2017 carlooks better. I think last year’s looked better overall, but that was a pretty high standard to live up to and in general it is two good looking cars out of two.

    Interesting article as usual. The comparisons are harder to make this season because of varying tire strategies. Without considering those, a lot of the battles were surprisingly close.

    I also think the article shows that Douglas Bacon deserves another shot in 2017.

    @mathers A nice improvement from last season while still keeping the same look. I appreciate the amount of design work that goes into your liveries, good stuff.

    Also it will look nice to have the proper tire manufacturer logo on the sidewalls. It’s a small detail, but stuff like that really goes a long way to making everything look better.
