@jamiefranklinf1 It’s up to you ultimately. If you think a second rate driver driving for your team will be worth making the team look bad, then go for it. :P25th November 2014, 20:11 at 8:11 pm #287303
Oh, and of course… Well done Adrien, you’ve been magnificent all season, and that win just cements your place in FV’s top table. Karl? We’ve got you a nice development role next season, don’t worry…25th November 2014, 20:08 at 8:08 pm #287302
@jamiefranklinf1 If you were to replace Hoskins, who would you be sticking in the car?24th November 2014, 23:28 at 11:28 pm #287151
Right guys, bear with me here, plenty of shuffling to do…
First of all, I am promoting Jamie Gerrard to Liverpool Grand Prix FV Team from the Liverpool academy, paying the £500,000 to do so. This means he vacates the seat with FIRST Motorsport. This seat will now be filled by Didier Arnaud. Finally, I am cancelling the purchase of Arnauds previous seat with Jiminez, incurring the relevant financial penalty for the cancellation of this seat.
I feel now is a good time to tell you all that Karl Beckenbauer will become Test and Reserve Driver for Liverpool Grand Prix, and Adrien Simon will be joined by Jamie Gerrsrd who will take the second driver role, and car number 22.24th November 2014, 21:52 at 9:52 pm #287149
Number 1, or number 44. Lewis is the title holder, we’ll still know that, a number on the car doesn’t change that.
As an aside, I liked the 80s-90s way of having a team hold numbers until they are champions, Ferrari with 27 and 28 is just something iconic in the sport. Then again, in 10 years we’ll probably say the same about Lewis and 44!24th November 2014, 18:00 at 6:00 pm #287139
rFactor seems to have this sort of thing, maybe this could work?
That would be cool, giving the on board information too, and it has the six drivers around them at the time to see where the battles might be developing?23rd November 2014, 15:00 at 3:00 pm #286869
I’d quite like a graphic on screen showing the positions in the race, it’s tough to understand what’s going on sometimes – it’s alright for Jamie and myself to an extent, we are at the front… For everyone else, I certainly struggle to see who is doing well further down the order22nd November 2014, 13:10 at 1:10 pm #286654
@jamiefranklinf1 I’m hoping it’s very unlean and unreliable for you! In the nicest possible way :)22nd November 2014, 11:12 at 11:12 am #286631
Um, @bradley13 I think you’ll find my post was held back by the system since I posted that last night.
I’ll wait to see what to do.
@robocat Olen Inman will run on day one of the test, Jamie Gerrard will run day two. Didier Arnaud will be focussing on his Junior season, then the fastest of Inman and Gerrard will become official test driver for 2015, with the other staying in FV2.22nd November 2014, 8:31 at 8:31 am #286578
@formula-1 Really? That’s a bit rubbish… Surely if we pay for them we should be able to use them as we wish?21st November 2014, 19:08 at 7:08 pm #28656119th November 2014, 20:43 at 8:43 pm #286126
Regarding the BTCS. I can’t commit to a date for round 2, as I’ve been so busy recently. As I can’t commit to running it at regular intervals, would people prefer it if I ran a couple of one off events each season? So, a 24 Hours of Le Mans, a Bathurst 1000 for instance. It’s not a season, but it means we can have the best races from all different series, and I’ll be able to run it. However, if somebody else wanted to take over the BTCS, I’d be more than happy for them to do so!18th November 2014, 21:40 at 9:40 pm #286068
@mfreire thank you for reminding me! Nobody has entered for a while, so I will judge now. All of the entries were brilliant, and I would love to see all of them built and raced on! Third place is @mfreire with his brilliant Baku street circuit – I wish Tilke had asked you for help! Close runner up is @PhilERead with his brilliant take on Mosport, but for me the winner has to be @juicedtin for his great circuit!17th November 2014, 20:26 at 8:26 pm #286004
@jamiefranklinf1 You’ve signed a junior driver have you not? What is to stop you replacing Hoskins with them?16th November 2014, 15:51 at 3:51 pm #285693
