    Who is going to win the drivers championship?
    I have no idea, but I can confirm both drivers have been given the same strategy – not that the weather looks like it’ll be dry. This will make things hard for us I’m sure.

    Who is going to take third in the constructors championship?
    I’m torn here. Franklin clearly have the momentum, and it’s impressive to see their return to form over the past few races.

    Who will finish highest in the championship out of the ‘new’ teams?
    All of them have impressed at various points, though I think FIRST will hold on unless something crazy happens.

    Who is going to take that second Franklin seat?!
    This is anyone’s guess. It’ll be interesting to see whoever it is, and they’ll have a big task of trying to beat Ruiz.

    Who will FUN confirm as their 2017 drivers?
    I think this will be one of the more interesting off-season developments – I’m very intrigued!

    Who will fill in the remaining seats for 2017 at Westwood(2), AMR(1), Ingram(1) and Meteor(1)?
    Westwood: Kinnumen and someone good value for money
    AMR: Ellington has been solid so should stay
    Meteor: Halvosen will surely get the nod
    Ingram: de la Fuente is an interesting shout – there is a lot of logic in seeing Mattson go to Franklin with Rodolfo being part of the deal, either on loan or permanently.

    Thank you very much for all of the congratulations, I’m ecstatic that we have finally achieved what we set out to do since day one. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been a great season so far which isn’t over yet!

    @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 I can see your point, but we have been safe in the knowledge all season that we’ve got more than enough in hand to take risks with one car. They don’t always pay off, but I think our finishing position in the championship not only confirms the quality of our car, but that of our drivers as well.

    Congratulations to @jamiefranklinf1 – you can never keep a team of your quality out of the winners circle for too long, though the rest of us made a good stab of it!

    I’m disappointed by the result in the USA, but I’m hoping we’ve accrued enough of a buffer already for this not to be an issue, and it poises the championship very nicely with three rounds to go. The excitement is tangible at the factory – nobody knows quite who will get the upper hand at the final races, but we know it’s going to be a blockbuster finish to the season.

    Very mixed feelings about that. We felt the need to cover all possibilities, and we got it wrong with Adrien. Olen was incredible in the race and all weekend, but we feel we didn’t give Adrien a fair shot there. For sure, we’re giving our drivers the same strategy in the next race…

    Wonderful from Olen, drove a very mature race from the start for a well-deserved win, and Adrien did a great job to take second!

    Boom! Olen has the pace to do really well here, I’m hoping he can get himself firmly back into the title fight. Adrien always concentrates more on the race pace during practice, so his pace there is really encouraging as well.

    Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, and I hope now is a good time to get this started: the Virtual Endurance Championship is going to return for 2017!

    You can enter as your own team or you can do something completely different. Don’t worry about drivers for now, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with me about any questions, requests, suggestions, and above all, to enter!

    SPOILERS:

    Very pleased with that result, after a tough race we’ve come out on top and it’s no less than we deserved. Olen’s consistency is being rewarded with him moving up to second in the championship, and Adrien extends his lead. Big thanks to Franklin for keeping Meteor and FUN down of course!

    Finally, awesome job @bradley13!

    Great lap from Adrien to grab pole, and Olen has done a good job there too. Franklin have done me a favour by getting between us and the Meteors, so hopefully their race pace is strong – but not too strong!

    Definitely a better start to the weekend than we’ve had for the past few races. If we can carry a similar advantage through to quali and the race, I’m hopeful that we can more than make up for what has been a difficult part of the season.
