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,
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.13th November 2016, 7:28 at 7:28 am #332388
Not bad for a mediocre driver.11th November 2016, 14:25 at 2:25 pm #332191
32 points, not 38.*11th November 2016, 14:24 at 2:24 pm #332190
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?11th November 2016, 12:14 at 12:14 pm #3321576th November 2016, 11:15 at 11:15 am #3319356th November 2016, 9:34 at 9:34 am #331934
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. :)1st November 2016, 0:24 at 12:24 am #331768
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. :)19th September 2016, 7:06 at 7:06 am #32889111th September 2016, 17:13 at 5:13 pm #328219
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.2nd September 2016, 6:12 at 6:12 am #327566
@blockwall-2 isn’t it Autumn now in the Northern Hemisphere? :P19th August 2016, 6:55 at 6:55 am #326653
Hopefully Klaas and Jochem can have some cracking battles in the future! Who knows where they could go!15th August 2016, 7:46 at 7:46 am #326602
Similar scenario with Jochem van Snelheid, obviously excluding age. Osterhagen has been eager to get back in the car so van Snelheid needs to turn up the gas, and its the perfect time to do it at his home race.
So annoyed Harding had to make a 4th stop due to damage. He was going to make the 3 stopper work and 7th was on offer, I wish their were footage of the incident to see what happened.
In the meantime…

Race should be going up very shortly! I’ve been in touch with Nic and he said he’s trying to get it up shortly, if not then certainly in the next 24-36 hours in the worst case scenario.6th August 2016, 23:34 at 11:34 pm #326487
When your Row 6 and Row 7
And your Hards aren’t quite like heaven
Seeing the tyre choices made me fear for my 2 drivers’ chances of points this race. We’ll probably lose 3rd and even 4th in the next few rounds but I’m wrapped to have been up near the front whilst we were there. :)
