    Regarding the increase in Downton engine deals… I call it the DS effect.

    Certainly an exciting end to the season!

    Big thanks to @RoboCAT for the magnificent championship, and also to @bradley13 for all the junior series work.

    I look forward to a great season ahead, both in FV and in the juniors – Xylander is already showing his potential in the YDT, and I’m watching the Winter Series with great interest!

    @robocat I sent them to you the other day but I put them down as China… I’ve re-sent them across now.

    I definitely think qualifying should be all about the car and driver combination, we don’t want a formula dominated by tyres all weekend.

    Really looking forward to this – a unique idea but one I think will be really exciting to see unfold through the season.

    Hi all, I just wanted to let you all know that the VTC championships are still open for entry, and that goes for people I haven’t tagged as well. I’d like to get as big a grid as possible for all three regions, but whatever happens this will be going ahead with the grids I get.

    If you fancy joining, give the Reddit thread a read and give me a shout – through PM is best, then I can’t be blamed for clogging up the forum more than I usually do!

    ALSO: The cars will have unique performances based on what you have chosen to run, and there will be parameters for you to change as well. It will be run using an Excel spreadsheet I have used to simulate real life car performance in the past, so you can be sure it’s accurate! This won’t be pure luck, I can assure you of that! You won’t be left behind, as I’m going to think of a Balance of Performance method that ensures people can improve while not compromising the fastest team!

    So far: Europe: 17 cars, Asia-Pacific: 14 cars, Americas: 6 cars

    Now I’ve properly watched the race, I can make informed comment.

    Firstly, a massive congratulations to @JamieFranklinF1 and his team. You’ve been top for three years now, and it’s going to take a massive effort for anyone to displace you next season.

    Now, I want to get involved in a couple of things.

    @formula-1 Firstly, I’m first to admit that Danish isn’t my strong point, but I have an interest in languages, and based on my albeit limited knowledge, the Danish pronunciation would indeed be @bradley13’s pronunciation: Halv-u-sun. Of course, in a Danish accent, but he’s not Danish, and putting on an accent to say a name then continuing is horrible to listen to, never mind extremely annoying for him to say. I think I’ve said Halv-u-sun early on as well in general conversation, so it’s as much my fault as anything. But I don’t think it’s wrong anyway.

    Now, the team management thing – if you’re not involved in the team, then surely you should give up your entry to someone who will be? I’m still team owner and technical director, so the whole on track thing still comes under my domain, though Arthur Lapierre is the go-to man for the PR speak.

    Finally, despite the fact I think Jamie is my biggest rival (I like to think of him as the CM Punk to my John Cena team-wise, but I reckon he sees me more as a Ryback or even worse Alex Riley…), I also think you’re speaking total rubbish Kaz. Franklin don’t keep both drivers based on past seasons – but that is true tactics. They get a bit more money than others, but that’s success, then they’ve used the money saved for a cheaper driver to develop ahead of everyone. That’s true technical and tactical success. Also, it’s not like they’re running some no mark like Regi Abott or paying for god knows how many drivers every season – both of their drivers were the ‘cheap driver’ at one point, and they’re both on the brink of the title. Now, this bit hurts me to say, but this is a game, and Jamie has played this perfectly.

    I for one am looking forward to 2016, as rather than complaining (well, maybe I have a bit), I’m trying to outplay the Grand Master of this game – DS are coming for you Jamie!

    MAXWELL TO REMAIN IN THE LIVERPOOL SEAT FOR REMAINDER OF SEASON

    Despite twice telling fans and media that Kip Maxwell would not be racing in the final races of the 2015 FV season, DS Automobiles Liverpool Test Team have confirmed he will in fact finish the season.

    Arthur Lapierre said: ‘We’re very pleased with progress, and with Kip’s work in the second half of the season, we’re very happy. His feedback has meant we’ve been able to bring two more development packages to the final rounds of the season, and it only makes sense that our development driver runs with those packages in free practice. Work at Paul Ricard will now be undertaken by Olen Inman, who comes fresh from his second place finish in FV2 to give us the final feedback on his car for next season, while Adrien will be doing the same from his race seat in China and Japan.’

    Gimp works a treat, that’s what I use for my liveries.

    And the same template works perfectly for both high and low nose!

    Oh yes, and to whomever it may concern when doing commentary, you pronounce Simon’s name like See-mon not See-mun. The latter is something entirely different to a virtual racing driver!

    Well, we certainly got our money’s worth from the TV deal today – plenty of coverage of our cars!

    After what can only be described as an awful qualifying, Adrien was seriously impressive today, fighting with a feisty Kip and some reckless AMRs to take a solid finish.

    For the rest of the field, gutted to see Westwood lose out on the win, and no matter what Jamie says, he’s going to be happy with Wagner going out – don’t forget which driver he has signed up already for 2016, and he’s never been one to let fair play get in the way of the right championship outcome for his team!
