    @Bradley13 – Fair enough. Wasn’t aware of that, but nevertheless, I think it would be wholly unfair if Ruiz lost the title when he put in some spectacular performances, only to be plagued by unreliability.

    @Mathers – I don’t know yet. I’d love to see what others could do in the car though. However, replacing him for one race would obviously prove very unpopular.

    @Bradley13 – Thank you!

    Really pleased with winning that. But I’m so gutted for Ruiz. He deserved that second place, and Hoskins was dreadful. Firstly, he should have qualified higher with such light fuel, and his race craft was appalling.

    There may be some changes coming up, because I’m not happy with that at all.

    Congrats to everyone in the top 5. They did a great job today, absolutely fantastic :)

    @Formula-1 – I agree, no need to change anything like that at the moment. We’re already making the switch to rfactor, so can’t see anything else we would need.

    That’s a shame, I was hoping Hirvonen could get some running without the scrutiny of fixing the title :P

    I guess @Bradley13 and @RoboCAT I’ll have Rudolfo in the car for day one, and Stokey for day 2.

    As for quali – really pleased with that. I think a few may have had doubts about picking Ruiz over Hoskins with the win difference, but he has come alive these past few races and had the measure of Will. I genuinely expected Hoskins to be ahead.

    Obviously the race could be a wildly different story, but just hoping it is clean and reliable!

    @RoboCAT Are there any restrictions as to who I can run in the test? For example, if I promoted Stokey to the seat, could he still run in the test? Or am I allowed to run Ruiz in the car one day to compare the two?

    I went this year, so I’d recommend somewhere on the start/finish straight (though having said that, that’s the only place I was).

    If pricing isn’t an issue, then I’d go with the grandstand, because it’ll be much easier to see, and less chance of annoying people around you :P

    If however, like me, you can’t spend too much, then the normal admission is still very good, but I would recommend getting there early to beat the traffic and bringing a seat! That way you can sit at the front and enjoy. It does mean you’ll have to sit around for hours before anything happens though lol

    @Bradley13 – That’s a shame. But I assumed that would be the case :P

    For anyone who did want to do the wiki. Lots of the information for the basic records are already on the main website, bar the last race.

    @Mathers increased his lead in number of pole positions to 11, the most of any team.

    @Mathers – That’s not a bad idea actually, providing that it’s something we can actually do. Wasn’t sure if that was just for next season.

    Also, I’ve been trying to make a list of what records we should be recording. The obvious ones are obviously there, being:

    Wins, points, podiums, pole positions etc. Are there any others that everyone would like to see?

    I was thinking we could add a page to the wiki @Bradley13, since you do a great job of keeping it up to date already :)

    @Bradley13 – Damn, I’ll just have to resort to sub-par pit stops and brake failures ;) haha

    I honestly don’t know why teams haven’t thought about this yet. I can only imagine the thousands of fans that would want to be more involved by doing things like this.

    Factory tours, sitting in a car, maybe even a simulator which just allows you to experience what it’s like to be in an F1 car.

    F1 gets a lot of stick for not being up to date in terms of social media etc, but there is lots that teams can do to make the sport more inclusive.

    I don’t recall hearing any other music than the one we have for every race this season.

    @Sirspuddington – You just have to say the word and we can make it happen. Just think, you could have two cars in the points, Westwood can finish behind or mix it up with Liverpool and Franklin that could be a possible 10-18 points per race, not only putting you above Lucas, but potentially challenging Fun and Ingram for 7th. They’re only 30-40 points away.

    @Sirspuddington – I forgot how well Kinnumen did this race! Performances like that and I can see you getting Lucas. Just need to find someone who can equal him.

    You can take Hoskins for the last few if you want ;) haha

    Whilst the battles for first and second are all but finished, we can now look to the other battles down the grid.

    First of all, we have the battle for third.
    Rossi has closed the gap slightly to Downton. 16 points doesn’t seem a lot to overhaul in the remaining three races, and Rossi did look far more promising in China.

    Next, the battle for fifth.
    Team 23 will be hoping they can salvage something from the season, and try to catch Peugeot. Only 20 points down, again, isn’t impossible, especially as their form has been slightly better recently, but it will be very close.

    Ingram and Fun aren’t too far behind either. Ingram haven’t done as well recently since their 4th place, so Fun may be able to get the edge if they can continue outscored Ingram.

    Finally, the battle of the newcomers. At times it has been easy to forget them, but they’ve done a phenomenal job to score points in their respective seasons. Warrior look to have the edge, being 6 points ahead, but one crazy race could change that. Bragging rights will be on the table in that battle.

    How do you guys think the Championship will look in three races time?

    Based on the last three races:

    1. Franklin-Honda
    2. Liverpool-Vauxhall
    3. Rossi-Ferrari
    4. Downton
    5. Peugeot
    6. Team 23-Downton
    7. Fun-Yamaha
    8. Ingram-honda
    9. Lucas-Volkswagen
    10. Westwood
    11. Warrior-mercedes
    12. Force Australia-BMW

    I’m really excited for the battle between Downton vs Rossi and Peugeot vs Team 23
