I think we’ve just seen the potential the aero dependent cars have on a track such as Jerez. We’ve got a bit of a tough task this weekend.10th July 2016, 22:23 at 10:23 pm #324683
I thought Harrison did really well today to be fair!10th July 2016, 17:21 at 5:21 pm #324673
Before I say anything else, I want to first congratulate @diceman for a wonderful podium, you really deserve it!
Today was nearly the perfect race for Adrien, after a difficult start where I was convinced he’d been taken out by Halvosen, who was awful today, he was imperious, and we got the perfect result – a French driver winning for a French constructor in France.
I’m at a loss about what happened with Olen (and Marcus for Downton). I guess it was a glitch in the game, but I hope the bad luck balances itself out during the course of the season…8th July 2016, 16:52 at 4:52 pm #324400
Very happy with practice, Adrien getting his one lap pace back and Allar proving himself a capable driver. Olen missing practice isn’t ideal for him of course, but we are more than confident that he will fight with Adrien for pole.5th July 2016, 11:09 at 11:09 am #324188
I found Sabine had the perfect combination of wit and humour while being a bonafide race driver with some serious skill behind the wheel. I can see why people found her jokes a bit corny for their liking, but I’d really recommend finding the segments of the show she did.4th July 2016, 22:06 at 10:06 pm #324016
I really enjoyed Chris Evans in the main presenter role, he seemed genuinely excited to be doing it, and it came across in his reviews. I felt at times that Clarkson in particular took over the show with his sarcastic persona more than the cars, and while I still found the show extremely entertaining, this was a nice alternative, especially since the previous three will still be on the TV in their new show. I thought some of the segments were a bit contrived, particularly his interviews of the celebrities, but they were still perfectly watchable and entertaining enough.
I’d have liked to see him do a second series at least because I felt his attitude to the programme was a breath of fresh air, but I think Matt LeBlanc will take the reins as main presenter now, and I’ve enjoyed his presence as much as I have Evans’, so it’s certainly not a bad thing. One thing I will say though, we need more Sabine Schmitz, she has been the best presenter in this series.4th July 2016, 8:59 at 8:59 am #323959
Very pleased with that race, we got the right result and in a comfortable fashion. Adrien shifted into another gear, he was imperious. I’m also impressed with the manner in which the two dealt with traffic with the minimum of fuss, while the overtake from Adrien on Olen at the start was as clean as you like. More of the same in France s’il vous plait!3rd July 2016, 21:19 at 9:19 pm #323950

All excellent entries, thank you very much for your designs! The winner is @rubaru!1st July 2016, 20:16 at 8:16 pm #323704
@jamiefranklinf1 A massive congratulations mate, all the very best for you, your wife and little Logan!30th June 2016, 18:05 at 6:05 pm #323527
That looks like a far worse version of Petrov in Malaysia a few years ago, but while that incident had massive run-off to collect any crash, the Hockenheimring is quite tight there, he could easily have ended up in the wall upside down. Scary, scary stuff. But once again, it’s testament to the strength of even the junior formulae cars that it seems that Buller is unhurt.27th June 2016, 19:24 at 7:24 pm #323396
Very pleased to get our first victory of the season after what has been a difficult start to the season, especially after a mediocre qualifying session. The pace has been there all season so far, so we need to make the most of Japan before the European season gets underway.25th June 2016, 12:21 at 12:21 pm #323264
Such a close margin between the entire grid! Very pleased that Adrien got a handle on the conditions, and Olen has never driven an FV car in monsoon conditions like this before so he’s learning all the time. We shall see what happens for the rest of the meeting, but it’s going to be one heck of a weekend based on this.22nd June 2016, 21:37 at 9:37 pm #323214
