    I’m shocked by our pace. I thought top three was possible, but not this close to the front. Obviously it’s not set in stone, but certainly a better start than I imagined.

    That’s actually pretty close to where I expected to be, though AMR seem to crop up a little higher than expected. Knew we wouldn’t be back on top, but should be a fun fight.

    FRANKLIN ANNOUNCE SECOND DRIVER

    Whilst not exactly news, Franklin have finally revealed that Jochem Van Snelheid will in fact race alongside Enrique Ruiz for the 2017 season. Sources indicate it is just a one year deal, giving Franklin the option to assess his abilities before talking about future opportunities.

    Questions will be asked whether he will be able to keep up with Ruiz and whether or not it was sensible for the three time Champions to let Wagner go.

    I agree with @redmist – I mean, let’s face it, the record speaks for itself, we all know I’m the best ;)

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Quite happy with the performance of our juniors, given that there were cars that were definitely faster than us.

    Huge congratulations to @mathers for the title win, along with Simon. It was inevitable we would be beaten eventually, and DS in whichever guise have been close throughout.

    Another congratulations goes to FUN for having a very good last race, enabling them third in the table. Definitely wasn’t a strongest race, and that cost us dearly. Had the rain stayed, I think it would have been a different story, but no point dwelling on that.

    I do think the formula has been all but worked out now, as will be seen next season.

    Unfortunately everything for me stems from my poor decision making in 2015 in the midst of reliability troubles, which have cost me the chance at this season’s title.

    Nevertheless, it will be a while before anyone steals our mantle of most successful team :P

    Funny how this is the one year I’m more expected to be on top, and the one year I’m unsure lol.

    Might do a proper list later, but it’s clear to me that…

    1. Downton
    2. DS
    3. Either Franklin or Westwood

    Time to quell one of the rumours with the race being postponed.

    Bid for Jochem van Snelheid: £4,000,000

    I tell you…when Wagner and Thunder collided, I was up in arms, but to pull it back was great from Wagner and showed his class all weekend. I won’t lie, Wagner was supposed to be retained with us for next season, just for simplicity, and I forgot which date I was supposed to bid and lost him because of it.

    Wagner has been great and best of luck to him at Lopez. But we still need a replacement.

    But anyway, three victories in a row is outstanding and proves that we haven’t forgotten how to win. More importantly, we are going to make the title fight that much more interesting in Brazil.

    Wow, qualifying has never been our strong suit, so it’s a surprise to see us come out on top. Disappointing for Ruiz, but it was obviously difficult conditions and I’m sure he can salvage something.

    Just need a clean race from the front now :)

    SPOILERS

    Really sad to see Beyer lose the lead in such a fashion. The backmarkers are such a nuisance. However, given that Beyer pitted at the same time as Milkovich the first time around, I do think he would have lost the lead anyway after being undercut, but it’s still a shame, he drove so well and deserved better.

    Sort of mixed results for us, very pleased for Wagner once again capitalising, but it’s a shame Ruiz’ race was squandered by a poor qualifying. Still, one step closer to third.

    Thanks for all the kind words. Clearly a small period of letting others win has made the team more popular lol.

    @blockwall2 – It was a joke.

    @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 – Funny thing was that before the race, even before practice I was thinking that this could be our best shot at an outside win considering how it usually throws up mixed results. And who would have thought that Wagner would take back to back victories at this track!
