    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.

    @RoboCAT I know it really doesn’t matter, but could we know the result of the test using different setups? I’d love to know how well we all did with it!

    I think that’s a great idea @bradley13

    @robocat fantastic news about the refuelling, it’s even more realistic than ever now! However, will we get a more accurate reading than 5 litres per lap? And also, out of interest, who was quickest using our setups?

    I suppose the way to look at it is that we can’t ALL be wrong, so we can all hope it’s us that has got it right!

    Now that I like, although there are two problems: I’ll never be able to afford it and I’d never be able to drive it in the smooth Prost style…

    We should at least be able change our setups after practice. There are no series I know of that don’t allow changes between practice and qualifying

    @robocat what I will say however, is that if you want to get started and dont think we need a test, I’ll get the setup with you as soon as I can! :P bring it on!

    @robocat I’m really looking forward to this, but we need to be able to test the setup parameters prior to a race otherwise it’s a game of chance. Can we submit a setup for practice then change it prior to qualifying? That would make things much more manageable. Also, what difference to lap time does the setup make? Can we not at least have a final pre season test to see what effect the changes have? Perhaps three days with one car with three different setups allowed. I may be in a minority thinking this but at the moment we are jumping off a cliff with no parachute and we don’t know whether there’s a soft landing at the bottom.

    I’d love to see F1 get a focal point like this, but I think the nature of F1 means it’s not possible as it stands. Both the Indy 500 and Le Mans see the addition of more cars to the grid, with Indycar expanding from around 24 up to 33, and of course Le Mans has 56 cars, 34 of which usually do the other WEC rounds. The only way I could see this sort of thing work is if you added the GP2 grid to the F1 grid in the same race, then made Spa the venue, opening up both the F1 and Sportscar pitlanes, and increase the running time to 3 hours. That would be excellent in my opinion, but Manor and even the lower midfield wouldn’t agree, because they’d be no quicker than the front running GP2 drivers.

    To clarify I meant we could change the rule, I know there will still be pitstops that’s what happens when you don’t proof read
