@keithcollantine Hi Keith, couldn’t remember if the e-mail address I have on here is my old one. But if you need to get in contact with me regarding the predictions Championship, then my e-mail is JamieFranklinF1@Gmail.comView
I think I’ll go with the majority here and say that it’s just a rule change that we have to get used to. Sure, it will be different, but the new series and set of rules will provide enough of a challenge before we eventually find a solution.
I agree with @Mathers, any more and it will become too complicated. Although I think even gear ratios are going to be complicated without more information, because it will be hard to gauge how much time our drivers could be losing with terrible acceleration, or hitting the limiter.
So apart from that one, I’m happy with the other picks.
@Robocat – I’m all for that. It will be tough for us all at first, but it going to make things very interesting as well. I’m sure at least the first half of the season is going to be based more on strategical thinking than performance for the first time. Could also see quite a few fuel-related retirements, I’m sure!
I’m happy either way, though I think varying strategies would be better than generic. Mostly because it would give more scope for teams without as much speed to spring better results, which could be a huge decider come the end of the year.
So, what’s everyone hoping for in the first race? Personally, after the testing we’ve had, anything but a win would be a little disappointing, but obviously strategy and reliability is still a huge concern, so as long as we get a podium and some strong points, I’ll he happy!
7 tenths off of the potential of the car isn’t exactly what I was hoping for. Although being in third by a couple of hundredths, with a driver who was a tenth slower than my other driver in their quickest times, I can be quietly confident.
Interesting development, but given that Hugh Dwyer was able to finish ahead of Davenport, it’s definitely worth a shot. You can see how much of a difference it makes in the standings for one driver, and with it being so close, I think it’s an inspired decision.
