D is an interesting group, I have no idea who’ll come out on top there. I haven’t driven the RUF since it was released so I’ve got some catching up to do :P19th October 2014, 16:39 at 4:39 pm #279513
Yeah, Sainz didn’t exactly cover himself in glory on the first lap either. Was there ever any action taken by the stewards for that?18th October 2014, 13:58 at 1:58 pm #279456
Nice race by Rowland there, really put the pressure on at the end. Pity the race was a bit of a procession, Merhi looked like he was well fired up for it.18th October 2014, 11:35 at 11:35 am #279454
Today or in the final? (just did my first race, came 3rd in top split)17th October 2014, 20:42 at 8:42 pm #279434
I haven’t decided yet, I might try out the GT3 series if I can get on with the cars, haven’t driven them in a while. I’ve been pulling my hair out trying to make a set for the upcoming world cup qualifier for the past two weeks, definitely not running Indycar :P17th October 2014, 18:51 at 6:51 pm #279428
All this exclusivity crap is just one more reason for me to avoid buying a console.13th October 2014, 23:23 at 11:23 pm #278707
Back at one of my favourite tracks this week, check this race out :D13th October 2014, 22:33 at 10:33 pm #278703
Judging by these comments I’m guessing it wasn’t Hulkenberg then ;)13th October 2014, 0:10 at 12:10 am #278655
I think Vergne on (iirc) Hulkenberg through t3 was a re-pass wasn’t it (not a defensive move)? If so, that gets my vote.
Having a poor memory and FOM strangling youtube makes these very difficult for me.8th October 2014, 18:11 at 6:11 pm #277697
I wonder what Stoneman will be doing next year, would love to see him in the WEC or something. I know he had a few years out but I’ve always had the impression he’s a mature racer.5th October 2014, 11:14 at 11:14 am #277075
Race 07 is what got me into sim racing, it’s getting a bit old now so the physics and graphics aren’t quite up to the top modern games but as a starting point it’s good. I don’t know how active the online scene is these days but the AI isn’t bad. It’s certainly good enough to teach you the basics of driving and car setup.30th September 2014, 1:31 at 1:31 am #276321
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.
