Pagenaud is my favourite Indycar driver, hope he can pick up a championship or two!25th September 2014, 0:35 at 12:35 am #276005
Honestly it doesn’t bother me too much at this track, the only real area to gain time is t2 and I don’t necessarily agree with some of the penalties given for using the runoff at turn 7. Generally when a car runs out there it’s because they’ve been forced to by a car on the inside, which I find a little unfair. If there was a wall there I don’t think anyone would find it acceptable to just run their opponents out of road. I wouldn’t be opposed to putting a slightly more severe kerb there to slow the car down (not a sausage kerb, just a bit higher so the car loses traction).23rd September 2014, 18:29 at 6:29 pm #275952
I think he is better than some people give him credit for. As Dan says above he’s one of the best at race management, but he doesn’t have the killer instinct of the top drivers (Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton), plus he lacks that little bit of quali pace which ends up making him seem a bit boring.
All in all I’d say he’s good but not great, certainly a worthy champion but if he hadn’t won a championship it wouldn’t have been a scandal.21st September 2014, 18:44 at 6:44 pm #275627
Yeah hopefully by the time it’s released they will have ironed out any bugs with seat swapping.
Did you see my post in the weekly thread btw @fer-no65 ? I squeaked in with a 1:39.999 XD. Interesting to hear the top guys are struggling with consistency at Brands this week, obviously I’m not as close to the limit as them but I haven’t been having too much trouble with it.19th September 2014, 19:46 at 7:46 pm #275192
Just did a practice, best time was a 40.0. Maybe a tenth or two left on the table there, messed up one corner. Not bad though, would have been good enough for top 10 in quali right now.17th September 2014, 18:22 at 6:22 pm #274880
Yeah we use different weather in our club races, my best time in official practice was a 54.6 if I remember right.16th September 2014, 1:08 at 1:08 am #274804
I found some speed this week, fun race!10th September 2014, 21:07 at 9:07 pm #274274
Geez I cant imagine a 12 hour race. The longest stint I’ve done is 2.4hrs and I was pretty tired by the end of that. I was thinking something like 90 minute races, although that would require a pretty low maximum fuel load. Anything up to three hours would be good depending on the car though.10th September 2014, 18:46 at 6:46 pm #274265
Yeah, that’d be fun if we can work it with the time zones. I’m not sure how many races would be doing three stints instead of two, in my experience most cars can run for an hour or more on a set of tyres.
Saw you took the plunge with the skippy btw @fer-no65 ! If I catch you in a practice session I’ll jump in :)8th September 2014, 19:03 at 7:03 pm #274070
I enjoyed Perez re-passing Button from the 2nd chicane through to 2nd Lesmo the most, especially as he arguably had the slower car at that point. Ricciardo’s dummies into the 2nd chicane were fun to watch too.4th September 2014, 18:23 at 6:23 pm #273297
The problem with Alfa is that now Fiat will restrict it to being an Italy-only brand…
Isn’t that Lancia, or is that being completely killed off? I thought Alfa was just being re-positioned back into it’s old saloon sector. Pity that new roadster is going to be badged as Fiat too, I guess it was too ugly to be an Alfa? :P
I’m not sure a major manufacturer would want to buy Force India, it’s always been a small/medium scale team and I’m not sure how much space there is for expansion (unless they move the whole base, which kind of defeats the purpose).2nd September 2014, 1:46 at 1:46 am #273063
I was a fan of Olivier Panis as a kid, and a retrospective fan of Jacques Laffite, so I have to say Ligier/Prost.2nd September 2014, 1:36 at 1:36 am #273062
Having thought about it a bit more, if you have the chance I’d suggest putting Road Atlanta, Road America, Suzuka and Spa at the top of your list. I believe they’ve re-scanned Silverstone, so unless you really want the old version of the track it might be worth waiting to see how they release the new one (I think it’s usually full price and they reduce the old version), not sure when that’s coming out though.14th August 2014, 12:15 at 12:15 pm #270476
This is starting to look very fishy12th August 2014, 19:55 at 7:55 pm #270326
