I’m relatively disappointed with our race, especially cos Harding retired, but the fact that van Snelheid got through 24 laps on his Mediums in his first stint but could only manage 23 for the rest of the race, just cost us a couple of points.
Apologies to the head honcho of our engine supplies in @bradley13 as our drivers collided when Harding’s engine succumbed to the heat, leading to a collision with Thunder. Hopefully this doesn’t taint on any future engine, and jepoardise any opportunity of us to work with you in the future.
Finally, @robocat I thought the post you made for the Jerez race the other week was to be scheduled for 69 laps (Page 695 of the forums, posted by Bradley), but instead we ended up doing 72… probably can argue that but I’ll hold back and see what the general consensus is on that one since there was a lot of pit stops benefiting some more than others at the end of the race.21st July 2016, 8:01 at 8:01 am #32515920th July 2016, 16:27 at 4:27 pm #32515218th July 2016, 11:52 at 11:52 am #325093
@robocat @formula-1 I’m glad we’re setting a precedent, however given the fact Ruiz copped a penalty for his sole incident with Simon in Round 1 shows a little bit of inconsistency in the system from my view. That said, I feel the 10 place penalty should have been replaced with a 5 place grid penalty after hearing the appeal, but I’m not the head steward am I? :P13th July 2016, 3:25 at 3:25 am #32491310th July 2016, 10:51 at 10:51 am #324555
Congratulations to @diceman by ending their points drought with a Podium! Really happy for you brother!!
Just the wrong strategy call and a bit of bad luck on Harding’s end cost us points position today. Knowing the points are still in the equation for us I’m positive that during the season we can regularly score and stay as high in the championship as possible when we get it right.9th July 2016, 10:25 at 10:25 am #3244649th July 2016, 8:53 at 8:53 am #324461
I’m wrapped to see Ostberg right up near the front. Hopefully he can notch up some wins and continue on his form from VWRS!
As for Davies, he looks to still be finding his feet from FV3, hoping he can settle in quickly and push up the field.
But I must say… seeing ‘van Snelheid takes Pole’ caught me well off-guard. Cheers @bradley13 … :P9th July 2016, 2:32 at 2:32 am #3244598th July 2016, 15:27 at 3:27 pm #3243948th July 2016, 14:51 at 2:51 pm #3243788th July 2016, 14:40 at 2:40 pm #324377
Erm… Mr Osterhagen wasn’t supposed to be driving…
None the less I’m quite flabbergasted to see how much we have lost out compared to the other teams. Hopefully as the weekend pans out we can get back toward where we were a few weeks ago.3rd July 2016, 18:42 at 6:42 pm #323893
‘Yawn’. It has just ticked past 3:35am and I am amazed I’m still here to tell the tale. The pit stop blunder with Downton and Franklin helped us score some bonus points, and I feel something had to happen during a race which had nothing really happen due to strategy. Not many overtakes, big gaps between drivers. Einarrson didn’t finish last so that’s something for him to smile about I suppose. :D
So fortunate Jochem didnt damage his or Harding’s car in his 5 seconds of fame moment at the first pit stop. They were pretty much right with each other all race and I was fearing the worst seeing them chase one another all day.
As for Paul Ricard… who knows where we’ll be. I’d imagine we’ll hang around the perimeter of the points like today’s race, but we’ll see how our changes compare to that of other teams. I hope our rain form can hang around though whenever the heavens do open!2nd July 2016, 6:31 at 6:31 am #323715
Congratulations to Jamie and Logan! Fantastic to hear the news!!
Abel Osterhagen was supposed to run as well, but I’m also curious to see we’ve dropped off between Shanghai and Fuji. Hopefully it’s just a one-off session like Shanghai practice was.30th June 2016, 17:57 at 5:57 pm #323526
