    I think I need some ex-Franklin talent on my books.

    Bid for Will Hoskins: £2,100,000

    Loving the full length videos, makes the race an occasion rather than just highlight. I think reducing the race length would be disastrous, as the strategy element would disappear.

    Also, @RoboCAT isn’t it this round we will receive our loyalty bonus development points for retaining one or both of our drivers for this season?

    SPOILER

    Well, we’re underway and it was another cracker to start the season. I’m disappointed we’re so far behind the Franklins, but I do think a small amount of the deficit was the huge fight we had throughout the race with the Rossi of Domenicalli and the two Meteors initially holding us up, though the same can be said for them. Both Rossi and Meteor look very strong, and I’m looking forward to a good fight with them throughout for second place, I’d consider us just to have the edge at the moment. It’s going to be tough to get much more than another second place from this year, and even that will be an achievement considering the pace of our immediate rivals. Franklin are the most well off team, and they’ve shown what they can do with their resources, and it’s going to be a fight between Ruiz and Wagner for the World title. However, I know that we are going to develop as much as we can to minimise the gap and get to the front – something we haven’t done in past years, and I’d like to think Rossi and Meteor will do the same so we can give Franklin a run for their money.

    @formula-1 I think the video is all together and ready, Nic is just limited by how quick Youtube can upload a full length video – patience young padowan!

    I know it’s totally out of the question because of FIA grading etc, but I’d love to see what F1 would be like on the Oschersleben or EuroSpeedway Lausitz tracks.

    Glad to see we are among the best of the rest, though I can’t say I’m happy about the gap to the Franklins. I think it shows the power of the budget in the sport. He’s got the money to develop, so much so that having spent all of my budget from last season on this year’s car, it’s still a half second deficit at the first race. I know it’s only race 1 of 19, but they’ve been able to sustain development to dominate the end of last season AND have enough left over to develop far beyond anyone for this year. I totally agree that the defending champions should have a very strong car, but I think the balance is just a little bit wrong.

    And I really love those new graphics for the grid lineup, it’s nice to see a little colour and presentation added to the qualifying results! :D

    @bradley13 Those videos are top quality! I loved that first lap, ultra hectic and plenty of action – you must be good to get that sort of result as well.

    I’m not sure whether to be pleased with that or not. Karl did a great job again, but we’re a little bit off the front, despite the investment over the past year, something which is unforgivable. I’ve got no idea what happened with Adrien, 8th is really not where we were planning on being this year. Great to see Meteor right up there, really pleased to hopefully be battling them this year. Franklin out front once again, why am I not surprised by that! Downton doing well considering the noises coming from them lately, and Ocelot right on the pace with the back of the pack and midfield straight away. Should be a great season ahead – as long as I can find some speed in this car…

    Jules Bianchi first came to my attention in 2009 during his Formula 3 Euroseries championship year. He was dominant that year, but from the first race I’d been a fan because I’ve always been a fan of French drivers, and he was driving for the ART Grand Prix team, which were my favourite outside of Formula One. It was after this brilliant season for him that Ferrari chose him for the Driver Academy, and he’d made a fan for life out of me.

    I found this on YouTube, and it shows Jules perfectly. It was made in the same year he won the F3 championship, but looking back now it seems the perfect tribute. Reposez en paix Jules.

    I’d like to see one of the pit garages in Hungary opened up but left empty with Bianchi’s name over the door as a tribute.
