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
Here’s that SRF race I did on Sunday, I was a bit too cautious after that caddy race if you’re wondering why I wasn’t defending hard. Worked out for me in the end though :)12th August 2014, 11:48 at 11:48 am #270300
Yeah in other cars it’s a bit easier because you can adjust on the throttle more, but the SRF just pushes like crazy on the throttle so you have to hit the apex perfectly and be super accurate when you put your foot down. It doesn’t help I’m avoiding 2nd gear here too so I cant let my minimum speed drop, I have to be pretty much perfect to do a fast lap with no 1x.11th August 2014, 22:21 at 10:21 pm #270285
Oh it’s a real pain, I was struggling to stay on track most laps. I’ve gotten better at getting up to speed over the years, the last few tenths always take a while though.
I never got around to racing the Solstice this week unfortunately, I did a Caddy race and got smashed out of the lead which put me off driving for the rest of that day :/. I had a fun race in the SRF to compensate though, currently uploading that to youtube.
I’ll probably try again with the Solstice and Caddy next week, and take a week off the SRF unless I’m feeling particularly masochistic. I might do a L79 race instead if I have time to make a set, I think that would be fun at CotA.10th August 2014, 16:59 at 4:59 pm #270251
Does everyone on here have a memory of less than a year? Singapore 2012 anyone? Turn 13 – barely any overtakes there before. That amazing overtake on Bruno Senna, which was overtake of the race, and was a contender for overtake of the season?
The one where he cut the previous corner you mean?
He gets in accidents because he’s either too aggressive or misreads his opponents. In my opinion he’s only looking better this season because he has a good car and mediocre (and overrated) teammate. Massa was at his best in ’08 and ’09 especially, since he came back he hasn’t gotten anywhere near that form.
