I think there’s more to these deals than meets the eye. I wouldn’t necessarily say Downton have the best engine, so I think that there is something going on behind the scenes to entice more customers.
And it comes at the same time that my driver is being priced up by a team with no money…24th April 2016, 22:04 at 10:04 pm #318350
@formula-1 Unfortunately not, there wasn’t enough time to add it in before the race ran, which is a shame. But perhaps it can be run in the YDT so we get a couple of nice shots :P24th April 2016, 19:56 at 7:56 pm #318347
That was a fantastic race, really close racing and greats scraps throughout the field. Happy for 2nd and 3rd after a very chaotic race, especially given that Ruiz barrel-rolled as well XD
Going to be very interesting here on out to see where people lie after the winter.24th April 2016, 15:58 at 3:58 pm #318342
Bid for Elroy Wagner £15,000,000
People want me to re-sign both drivers, yet insist on bidding for them as well.
Let’s see Wagner and Ruiz battle it out again.23rd April 2016, 16:58 at 4:58 pm #318321
Congrats on the pole @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 :)
Happy that my boys could still remain near the top and somewhat together in those tricky conditions.21st April 2016, 8:53 at 8:53 am #318268
And people wonder why I never keep my drivers…19th April 2016, 18:27 at 6:27 pm #318238
Bid for Elroy Wagner – £14,000,000
Also, Franklin will be running a special commemorative livery for the final race of this season, brandished with each year in which we’ve won the Championship, to signify our success through the years, but it will also carry the FV logos as a thank you to @RoboCAT, who has done a phenomenal job with this series and without which we wouldn’t be Champions anyway :)17th April 2016, 15:11 at 3:11 pm #317975
Really good race there, thoroughly enjoyable, and although it’s tough to see Ruiz’ defense slip through his fingers, he still showed a Champion’s speed and spirit through the entire season. Wagner has obviously been much more consistent thanks to better reliability on his side, but he got the job done today, and it was thrilling to watch.
Again, @sirspuddington has done a brilliant job in turning that car around this season, and definitely deserves that result, as much as it hurts! But nice to see him get a taste of the stress of his two drivers battling at the front and coming together :P16th April 2016, 20:56 at 8:56 pm #317890
Great to see Ruiz take another pole, given his struggles in practice. Should be a good race between the front four.
Thanks to everyone for their comments, they are much appreciated :) and we will be back fighting next year. Three years of hard fought Championships won’t slow us down.
As for the tyre/qualifying rule, I would definitely prefer to see everyone on the same compound. Qualifying should be about raw pace, not strategy, and then it will create an interesting race. Otherwise we’ll see a grid dictates by tyres.16th April 2016, 7:11 at 7:11 am #317774
@RoboCAT – brilliant news :) this should lead to much more varied strategies from the teams, so will be very interesting to see!12th April 2016, 11:45 at 11:45 am #317470
Great stats again @blockwall2. Leaves me wondering the kind of season we could have had without such atrocious reliability, but then again there’s no point dwelling on the past!
In other news, Franklin are likely to run a commemorative livery for the final race of the season, so hopefully we’ll have that released to you all fairly soon.10th April 2016, 21:21 at 9:21 pm #317309
@Mathers – I’m more than happy with that comparison, there is no way you are a Ryback XD10th April 2016, 21:08 at 9:08 pm #31730610th April 2016, 20:26 at 8:26 pm #317303
@Formula-1 – I’ll try not to make this too long. It’s no secret that I’ve enjoyed playing the villain here, adding a little character to the paddock with my ‘heelish’ approach, so the opinions I usually give fit those characteristics, but I actually like and respect most people and teams here.
To say that I’m not a ‘true’ Champion I feel is incredibly disrespectful. Perhaps this is just a persona opinion, as opposed to your true feelings, but nevertheless, that’s how I’ve taken it.
The fact that you think money is the sole factor to my winning shows how little you understand the tactics of this game.
To say that only my drivers deserve any credit for this Championship, when I have had at least double the retirements of any other team is absolutely ludicrous.
I’m sure that one day soon, a team will undoubtedly beat me, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that comes as soon as next season, but when that happens, I will applaud them for doing a better job than me, not try to diminish their results with cheap words.
