@Redmist I assume it’s the same as the old random virtual game Bradley and I used to run, in which when car and drivet abilities are taken into account, numbers are randomly generated to put together a grid, which then gives figures of the potential of a driver during the race.
Then at each part during the race, numbers will again be generated to, which keeps happening. The highest numbers will win, and so on. It also randomly generates retirements as well.
I realise as I go on that I’m not explaining this well, but overall it’s random with a few factors taken into account :P26th September 2014, 21:39 at 9:39 pm #276169
@Mathers – If that’s the case, then why are you down for Downton engines next season on the site? :P26th September 2014, 20:46 at 8:46 pm #276165
I’d also like to say a big thanks to Honda for providing us with such a great engine. I think that has really helped us look stronger with the straight line speed it delivers. I think Ingram being up there with us strengthen my point, and hope this continues into Spa and Monza. Things could be more tricky after that.26th September 2014, 13:22 at 1:22 pm #276115
@Mathers – Sorry on behalf of Ruiz, but at least it didn’t ruin your race too much :) though I will be enforcing my own punishment for wreckless driving.26th September 2014, 7:31 at 7:31 am #276092
Haha! That is too funny xD23rd September 2014, 19:43 at 7:43 pm #275953
I may be a tad biased here, as I’m a huge supporter of his, but I definitely agree.
As has been mentioned, his quali pace isn’t spectacular, but it doesn’t mean he can’t hook up great laps when he has the car to work with. Look at Spa 2012 for example, or all of his poles in Brawn.
In a bad car, I think he lacks motivation, sort of like Raikkonen really, but I would class Button as the better of the two.
Anyway, I’d like to see him compared to Alonso, as they both seem to have great race craft, but somewhat lacking a little on Saturdays at times.23rd September 2014, 7:48 at 7:48 am #275819
@RoboCAT I think I remember putting a stats page up when the site was re-made, but the upkeep sort of dwindled after a while, but it’s good to have some back :)
Difference between Ruiz and Hoskins is very interesting. Hoskins only has a couple more podiums, despite an entire season more in a car capable of winning, but Hoskins has been able to take the opportunity to win more races this season.22nd September 2014, 21:20 at 9:20 pm #275781
@Mathers – Haven’t decided yet, but it wasn’t me that took Wilson that high, it was Lucas and Harry :).22nd September 2014, 20:39 at 8:39 pm #275779
I can say that neither driver is feeling particularly happy with what could be happening in the next couple of races.
In contrast, Mattias is feeling pretty happy to be given this golden opportunity, considering his age and is eager to show the paddock that he isn’t the terrible driver that he has been dubbed as.
By the way…what is the driver retiring age?21st September 2014, 22:02 at 10:02 pm #275654
I’m planning on keeping my current livery, bit just maybe the bull as an addition on the engine cover. Haven’t quite decided, but I’ll make sure the current livery isn’t compromised too much.21st September 2014, 21:31 at 9:31 pm #275649
Not sure if I’m going to go ahead with any more money just yet. Franklin isn’t quite as well off as some may expect :)
Also, i don’t have much access to the site right now. Doesn’t post well with my phone, so if someone wants to put a story on the site for this, I’d appreciate it. If not, no big deal as it’s on here :P
Red Bull to sponsor Franklin as of next season.
In a recent report from the Red Bull Hq, the energy drinks company will spread their wings and soar into F1, combining their forces with the current world champions.
‘We have been very impressed with their professional demeanour of the past 18 months, and we think it suits us well. They haven’t been afraid to make tough calls, which may be perceived as unpopular. Nevertheless, we are working with them to create an image for us both to succeed in our respective industries. I’m sure this will be a very successful partnership,’
Franklin seemed to share their sentiments when we caught up with him straight after.
‘They approached me with a very generous offer, and I was so surprised by their commitment to us from the get go. I couldn’t be more certain that together we will be very successful,’
However, this isn’t the only news from the Franklin camp. Rumour has it that Finnish test driver, Mattias Hirvonen could be replacing one of the drivers after the Austrian Grand Prix. With both drivers battling with each other and Liverpool for the title, it would seem like an absurd call. Jamie Franklin was unwilling to comment at this time, though our sources indicate it could only be for Belgium and Italy.
Perhaps this was the kind of extreme decision, which has enticed Red Bull.21st September 2014, 9:34 at 9:34 am #27545520th September 2014, 20:35 at 8:35 pm #27539820th September 2014, 20:26 at 8:26 pm #27539520th September 2014, 20:12 at 8:12 pm #275392
