    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.

    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.

    Thank you very much!

    Next up: A number of circuits have been on the F1 calendar over the years, and most of them no longer host the series. Your challenge is to take a circuit no longer on the F1 calendar and change it to entice modern F1 back. You can redesign the entire circuit, you can add a new section to what is already there, or you can simply reprofile a few corners. All I want is something that is different to what currently exists at that circuit. As I know this is a very broad criteria, if you’ve got two submissions, I want to see them!

    Good luck!

    Congratulations to @formula-1 on another win!

    I have to say I’m immensely disappointed that the mediums only went two laps longer than the super softs at the start, I really feel that ruined my race. I’m going to have to have a long, hard think about strategy for the next few races.

    Well done to @theawesomefish for a great stint in the commentary booth, and I just want to reiterate my appreciation for @bradley13‘s work – you’re now the unmistakable voice of FV, it just wouldn’t be the same without you.

    One of the madness tracks I’ve ever seen is the Palanga circuit in Lithuania: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palanga_circuit

    It hosts a 1000km endurance race every year: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1000_kilometrų_lenktynės

    The track doesn’t have complex runoff area layouts or special barriers – they literally race down one carriageway, turn round at a gap in the barrier, race down the other dual carriageway, take the next junction (having passed a motorway services) and start again.

    This video gives an indication of what it’s like: (featuring the Gelzinis brothers of Porsche Carrera Cup GB fame and many, many women)

    @jamiefranklinf1 In the interest of fairness, I’d like you to have the opportunity to defend Ruiz, even if it changes the outcome. Perhaps @robocat could take these comments into account if you post them again?

    Big congratulations to @formula-1, got the strategy perfectly right and overcame a few problems with backmarkers to dominate today. Well done to @pezlo2013 as well, big shame for them, Harding and the Australian fans that the pitstop was necessary at the end.

    Franklin looked out of place today, but with their big update coming in Europe, they’ll be right at the front immediately, I have no doubt. The new team battle was hard fought, and a big well done to @blockwall2 for being the fastest of them with Hutchinson.

    I love the new presentation, and with the new features set to arrive for Malaysia, it’s only going to get even better!

    From my point of view, that was awful. Olen drove a race worthy of victory in my eyes, but we lost out because of a catastrophic error in strategy, while Adrien was visibly struggling with the tyres we gave him. A podium for Olen is scant reward for his effort today.

    I’d like to ask @robocat to investigate the incident between Simon and Ruiz – the Franklin driver took Adrien out of the race, and while there were numerous incidents that I think are worthy of looking at, this one in particular resulted in the victim being eliminated from the race, so I’d like to see action taken.

    Olen has hushed a few critics with that performance I bet. I’m very interested to see Adrien so much slower, but there are a multitude of reasons that could have happened. For me, the practice and qualifying aren’t important, it’s who wins the lottery of tyre choice! I’m hopeful that Hard tyres will prove to be the best for Australia, but it’s a bit of a leap into the unknown for all of us.

    Also, @blockwall2, where did you get the impression we have a clear number 1 driver?

    I definitely second the idea of Porsche entering – I’d love to see them buy Force India and be reunited with Nico Hulkenberg and then have Sergio Perez in a team with abundant resources. As you say, never gonna happen, but it’d be fantastic!
