Also, I am calling for some action to be made against backmarkers. This is the third race in a row that they have effected the outcome, and it’s unacceptable.4th October 2015, 18:15 at 6:15 pm #306525
A few points I would like to air out after that race.
First thing is first. Congrats to Downton for a great performance and their first win.
Extremely disappointed that the strategy was not representative in the slightest of our actual strategy, which has really hurt us and our potential defense.
Not happy with Wagner for one, not leaving enough room for Ruiz, and two, not showing the pace that was clearly in the car.
Whatever I say will sound bitter anyway, but the pit stops are becoming a nuisance.
Congrats again to Downton.1st October 2015, 22:54 at 10:54 pm #3064741st October 2015, 12:56 at 12:56 pm #306462
Was always expecting it to be close, so a front row lockout is fantastic. We seem to have more race pace than quali pace as well, so hoping for a nice, clean result.
Very impressed with Wagner’s form as well.29th September 2015, 7:24 at 7:24 am #306288
Been having lots of troubles recently logging on, however it looks to be working now.
Quite disappointed with the race. Another Ruiz DNF is not what we needed right now, and we definitely need to capitalise on how the car is now, so hopefully he can fight back at his home gp. Also not sure if there is a problem, but the pit stops don’t seem to be what I was planning, but maybe that’s just a learning curve with the new game.
I reckon Brazil will be our toughest challenge yet. With the track being so short, it is bound to close the gap, so we will need a strong weekend to keep ahead here.13th September 2015, 17:47 at 5:47 pm #305132
@Formula-1 That’s a good point. Perhaps instead we could have a bidding season. For example, bids can only take place after the halfway point in the season, or between a set number of races, like the transfer season in football. Could even be during the winter, but that may be too boring.
That way people don’t get cheap auto renewals season on season.
For the multiseasons, we could introduce a 10, 20 or 30% extra fee for the privilege. Gives people the opportunity to keep drivers if they want, without risking absurd renewal fees.
Still, could probably use more work.13th September 2015, 15:20 at 3:20 pm #305125
I don’t mean to be rude, but I don’t like how multi season contracts work.
In this instance, I pay 14,000,000 for Ruiz and want 3 seasons. That adds another 7 mill, claiming half my budget for next season, should I win. Not only does it demolish my budget for next year, it also means that should I drop from the top, im stuck paying 14 Mil year on year, crippling my team.
I like the idea of multi season contracts, but for me at least, the risks far outweigh any potential rewards.12th September 2015, 7:43 at 7:43 am #30503911th September 2015, 21:11 at 9:11 pm #305024
I am speechless.
…I’m going to take a wild guess at Ruiz having a problem with the car, or perhaps a mistake.
Still, great job.9th September 2015, 19:25 at 7:25 pm #3049078th September 2015, 15:59 at 3:59 pm #304881
@Mathers – Ruiz is one of the, if not the best driver on the grid today, in my opinion. Obviously this is subjective, because we can’t see him compared to others equally. However, his consistency makes him key. But that does not necessarily mean he will always be the best choice. I always have an ever evolving plan of where my team is, and how I can improve on my position. That has obviously caused some upset towards driver treatment in the past, but no driver is bigger than the team :)8th September 2015, 6:51 at 6:51 am #3047197th September 2015, 19:29 at 7:29 pm #304699
@Mathers – Wasn’t expecting that! I’ll see how things pan out from here. Clearly Ruiz is more highly sought after than I anticipated.
…Or my cars just flatter my drivers to the point that everyone wants them :P7th September 2015, 9:27 at 9:27 am #3046806th September 2015, 20:53 at 8:53 pm #304658
