In 2014 there were two of these moments, one being after Bianchi’s crash in Japan for obvious reasons and the other being the last lap of Abu Dhabi realizing that Hamilton was going to be champion. As a Hamilon fan, this was emotional especially after the tough season of 2011 and the heartbreaks of 2012. I was convinced he probably wasn’t going to win a championship so when he did it was magnificent.
The most exciting, jump-off-of-the-couch moment for me was Jenson Button overtaking Vettel on the last lap of 2011 Canada. It was unexpected and I was sick of Vettel winning all of the races. And JB has so much class that he is hard to pull against.
@earthling Thanks for the response.
Does anyone know if there is a TV screen across from the popular grandstand? And can you see the apex of the hairpin?
@spaceman1861 I don’t think F1 cars are allowed to race on it. Button did a demo run, but that does not mean the FIA would support a race without ruining a great circuit.
I do think the WEC should expand its calendar a little, especially during the extremely long break between Le Mans and the fourth round. I agree that expanding the calendar before Le Mans wouldn’t really be possible.
Let me guess…..Double points or standing restarts? Wait, this is FV not F1. It will probably be something to do with the switch to rFactor, maybe availability of tracks on the calendar?
Maybe the Malaysian weather will throw up something special?
Will they have separate aero kits for the ovals, or just use the default DW12 oval configuration kit?
@jackysteeg It most certainly was, over to you.
I feel like this game would be impossible without the wonders of Wikipedia :) .
It is an interesting game though.
My hint (I hope I haven’t made it too hard or easy):
On this repetitive date, Formula 1 received a very warm welcome in a new land. And while the land was new for F1, the race winner certainly was not.
August 30th, with the race winners being Räikkonen at 2009 Spa for Ferrari and Hill at 1998 Spa for Jordan
I just used MS Paint. And it is supposed to be blue, by the way (but then again I am partially colourblind)
Here is the FIRST Livery:
Hopefully Rossi, just to get an American on the grid.
@bradley13 I will be happy to do so, but I cannot find the template on the website (I am probably being stupid and overlooking it). Can you provide a link?
@junior-pilot Just to add on: even Forza Rossa has a spot for 2016. We have no idea who these people are, what they have (probably nothing) and haven’t heard anything about them actually making it to the grid. It will be absolutely ridiculous if they are in a better position than a team with five years of f1 experience and two points to their names.
Anyone with a car that is legal should be allowed to compete, no matter what. I don’t see why the FIA even has these strict rules for entry onto the F1 grid. And for this particular season, where the rules have basically not changed, a 2014 car run by effectively the same team should be allowed. Heck, they used to allow Super Aguri to basically use the previous season’s Honda!
