    Well I was thinking of trying the Star Mazda next season but I find it very hard to drive, I might see if I can tweak the setup a bit to make it less snappy before I make my decision.

    Came 37/2742 in Skippies, I guess that’s not so bad :D

    People seem to be forgetting Vettel had the fastest car for half of the 2009 season, I would add that to his ‘possible titles in a winning car’ list, it was certainly better compared to Hamilton’s car last year.

    Vettel seems to be fitting into the Schumacher zone very quickly to me, brilliant when he’s at the front and able to control the race, not so good at overtaking. If we still had refuelling I imagine we’d be seeing him putting him those crazy fast laps like Schumi used to do too.

    Embarrassingly I dont have the F1, the thought of spending hours on setups put me off :/

    As someone said on the forum, a lot of the corners have different lines so it’s easy to get tangled up, especially on the first lap. I was lucky enough to qualify near the front so after a little robust defending I made myself a nice space :).

    Unfortunately my ‘net is bust this weekend so no more races after all, I think #1 was a little out of range anyway :(

    Woohoo, won a race (2550 SoF too)! That’s bumped me up to 2nd in division 3, might do a couple more races this week after all…

    5. Hakkinen

    4. Fittipaldi

    3. Lauda

    2. Senna

    1. Prost

    Kind of confused if this is supposed to be driver ranking or usefulness to the team, obviously McLaren wouldn’t exist without Bruce. Prost pips Senna for reasons stated above.

    Yup, heading down with my brother and some friends on the Friday (weekend tickets are expensive!)

    Please no! Bernie is 1000x better than those vultures.

    also: I lol’d at ‘ripest Murdoch’ tag

    Now that passing is actually possible it does make sense. I always wondered why they hardly ever decide to do it this way around, I guess because it makes the hard tyres last a lot fewer laps, which means you have to go longer on the softs or make another stop.

    It’s possible that the teams are still stuck in last year’s strategy mode, it wouldn’t be the first time they’ve been slow to react to this kind of thing.

    Assuming that was the only time it opened out of the zone I dont think it will be a problem, and as has been said it’s the FIA’s fault that it did open, since it is supposed to be locked out at that point.

    As Superted says there are a couple of things that could stop Vettel, namely Ferrari or McLaren getting a decent upgrade or, God forbid, Vettel getting injured. I think their car is just about catch-able, McLaren have recovered from larger performance disadvantages in recent years (although admittedly they had fundamental issues with their car – as they did in testing this year).

    As has been said a lot this year though, qualifying performance is less important than usual, and in race pace things are much more equal.

    I feel your pain. Just had my first race, a guy span in front of me in t5, I had to take evasive and lost 4 places. Then on the exit of t6 the guy that just overtook me rode the curb and steered straight into me, bending my steering.

    The worst thing was I could have quite easily come third, I’ve finally worked out how to drive this track.

    Grats Joey! I spectated a race you had earlier on yesterday when you were taken out on lap 3, that was massively unlucky – I was watching you from cockpit view and you did exactly what I would have done. Glad your karma equalled out in the end :).

    Wouldn’t be surprised if it took off, considering the wind at Silverstone.
