    So I’ll start this by saying this is my first F1 game since F1 06, and I’m not generally great at racing games (at least when I start playing them). For this reason I set a few driving aids and the difficulty at 50, and I’ll adjust it until I find my level. I started out with McLaren and With Alonso as my team mate.

    Race One: Australia

    It did not start well. I crashed out of all 3 practice sessions, and didn’t complete a single practice programme. After this I qualified dead last, 1 second off the Saubers and nearly 2 off Alonso. The race started well as I leapt to 15th, just behind my team mate. However I got too close to Alonso and slightly dislodged my front wing. After this the handling became difficult, I lost a few places before sliding off into a wall.

    Quali: 20th Race: DNF

    Race Two: China

    This went much better as I was able to complete all practice sessions and especially did well in qualy pace. However I struggled to get the hang of the tyre wear or fuel use programmes (this’ll be important later). Qualifying went pretty ok, as I qualified 18th, 0.1 off of Alonso. Once again I got a good start, in my first wet weather experience ,rising steadily through the field to 14th behind Ocon. However I then made the same mistake and damaged my front wing. Luckily the safety car came out, and I was able to pit for a new wing and fresh rubber. After this I steadily rose through the field until I was 7th with half a lap to go. Then the fuel started running out on the back straight and I fell to 17th at the finish line, only ahead of Alonso because he had pit for inters on the penultimate lap.

    Very good, qualified 4th and finished 3rd, despite stalling on the grid. Makes me wonder if I could have won otherwise.

    Very interesting. Have you done the 2005 season yet?
    On a related note, there is a very good series on YouTube Senna in 1985:
