    I’m satisfied with Viktor ”¶stberg’s performance in the YDT. Another season in FV2 and he should be ripe to take it up to the big boys.

    As if the season’s over man. Loved every minute of it!

    Obviously for me our highlight of the season was Harding at Shanghai. The big congratulations has to go to @mathers for snaring the double this season. Being connected through our partnership with our engines has rocked up to now, and I’m sure you’ll be right up there again next season.

    I’m wrapped Simon was able to grab the title but it sucked that backmarkers pretty much set it up for him. Been the story of the season though so we can’t do much ay.

    Can’t forget to than @robocat for making Formula Virtual what it is. Dunno what you were hoping would happen but I’m sure some didn’t anticipate it to become what it has. Shoutouts to @bradley13 and @sirspuddington (once you learn Descida do Lago :P ) on stepping up to commentating duties. I remember my stint last season and I remember how difficult one race was, and he you’s are doing full seasons. Pretty cool guys.

    2017 then, only god knows what lies ahead. Hopefully the start of this season doesn’t turn out to be a one-off and we can start getting back to the front. It was certainly better than being a midfield team, and definitly better than being rock bottom like we were in 2015. :)

    Drivers?
    I’m torn. Part of me wants Simon but I expect Inman to deliver. Ugh…. Simon.

    3rd in Constructors?
    If Franklin hold their form I reckon they’ll get the job done.

    Best of the New Teams?
    I’m thinking FIRST, and North Star/Ocelot could go either way

    Franklin’s 2nd driver?
    Made me redo my Indy lineup, but we can safely assume who the man is gonna be now.

    Fun’s driver lineup?
    My sources say they Could be signing a World Champion…

    Everyone else..?
    Westwood: Kinnumen and I think Christodoulou… not convinced
    AMR: Don’t see why Ellington shouldn’t be dropped for anyone. Has won in the past.
    Ingram: Already confirmed
    Meteor: Already Confirmed

    2017 Pecking Order

    1. Downton
    2. Franklin
    3. DS Mathershaw
    4. Westwood
    5. AMR
    6. Lopez
    7. Ingram
    8. FIRST
    9. Meteor
    10. FUN
    11. Holmqvist
    12. North Star
    13. Ocelot

    That was a pretty encouraging race for us. Hopefully we can finish the season off with a few more results like that.

    Congrats to @jamiefranklinf1 on your first win. I know we’ve had our differences dating back to the PS3 days, but a season without Franklin winning just doesn’t seem right.

    I do have one small thing I’d like to bring up however,

    @robocat, @bradley13, @diceman, @formula-1, @jamiefranklinf1, @mathers, @pezlo2013, @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1, @sirspuddington, @aiera-music, @redmist, @blockwall2, @theawesomefish, @holmqvist

    I’m requesting the Stewards to take a look into Mattson’s pass on van Snelheid, which saw the later get spun around at the first corner on Lap 75, just after the 1 hour and 29 minute mark of the race video.

    My argument is that Mattson simply used Jochem as a brake having braked later into the first corner, despite the fact there was plenty of room either side of the Dutchman which Mattson should have utilised in his efforts to overtake my driver. The incident led to Jean finishing just over 5 seconds ahead of Jochem due to a reckless act.

    It’s fair to assume these incidents shouldn’t be condoned and I believe some sort of penalty should be implemented.

    Not bad for a mediocre driver.

    32 points, not 38.*

    I think ‘mediocre’ is a bit of an overstatement as well. Wagner has out performed Ruiz in qualifying by 8-6 to this stage of the season, yet Ruiz has always seemed to get the more preferable tyre strategy in most races. Only 4 times have they competed a race on the same set of tyres this season.

    In all the races Wagner finished in 2015, he only missed the podium once, and all his 3 DNFs came in the second half of the year, hence the 38 point victory. If you know you’re giving him the second best strategy most of the time in 2016, why suddenly label the world champion mediocre?

    Super excited for Nic and his family as yesterday it was confirmed he is now engaged! Congratulations and all of us here in the FV community wish you all the best with your next chapter of life!

    Wrapped that Jochem pipped the Downton on the final lap, albeit for P12, but it’s just looking like he’s more relaxed now that the weight is off his shoulders after confirming his move to IndyVirtual for next season. I’m hoping he can and James cap off our best season yet in the last 4 races. :)

    Couldn’t be more happy to see my drivers make up 8 positions each on different strategies to achieve a double points finish! Hopefully we can get a few more points in the bag to make sure we seal 6th in the Constructors. :)

    Double Points Finish! GET IN! One of the most tense races I’ve ever been a part of after all those terrible crashes. It got to the point where going through the 2 main ‘danger sections’, I nodded in satisfaction each time my drivers went through.

    I hope those involved are alright, though I won’t name them so the manager of the driver doesn’t have his race spoiled before watching the race.

    Hopefully we can string a few more points places in order to shake off AMR for 6th in the constructors. It seems the 2 of us are coming back to our old days together in the 2013 season, albeit in the midfield.
