I don’t agree that teams should be punished so much for changing drivers, it happens all the time in f1 and I think while driver-team continuity should be encouraged, however I think variety is also good for the sport. I agree that a bonus is in order for teams Tha show loyalty however at the moment there is more risk than reward for bringing new blood through. I’m not saying I have the perfect answer, but I’m saying maybe it could be tinkered with somewhat.21st October 2015, 21:18 at 9:18 pm #30733528th September 2015, 23:14 at 11:14 pm #30628028th September 2015, 11:27 at 11:27 am #306259

Season 1 – Spain – Qualifying – 19th
I’d heard the AI were a lot quicker here but I thought to myself it’s nothing I can’t handle. I was so wrong, the AI are so OP at this circuit. I managed to reach a 1:24.973 but that was only good enough for 19th. Trulli qualified behind me on a 1:25.313.
Season 1 – Spain – Race – DNF
I decided to start on primes and try and mix things up a bit. Into the first corner I managed to move into 17th, which pleased me, until I lost a place to Barichello at T3 due to running out wide. I drove my socks off for 3 laps, but couldn’t create a gap back to Buemi and I lost Barichello within a lap. Then I messed up T3, ran out wide onto the bumpy tarmac on the outside of the corner, my car started jumping around and I spun around. I collected Chandhok who also DNF’d, but I survived unscathed, albeit last. I started pushing too hard, and had a few snaps of oversteer that I barely controlled. Then, come lap 4 at the final corner, I was too aggressive on the throttle and slammed the car into the pit wall, crashing out. Very costly for my championship challenge, and for Lotus.

Season 1 – China – Qualifying – 15th
The car wasn’t feeling too strong in practice, and I picked up most of my time on the straights, losing a lot of time in the middle sector. However, I managed to clock a 1:37.949, 2.2 seconds off of Webber on pole and 2.2 seconds ahead of Trulli in 22nd. There’s a 55% chance of rain forecast for the race.
Season 1 – China – Race – 10th
I started on primes in case it rained in the race, however this turned out to be a bad call. I had a somewhat sluggish start off the line, but managed to take a few places into turn one, and I was up into 10th. I fell back a bit from the cars ahead initially, but started to catch them again. I was able to take 9th off of Petrov going into T1, and 8th from Kubica at T5. I was then promoted to 7th by Webber pitting at the end of lap 2. Another weird strategy, courtesy of Red Bull. From there I was just trying to set some consistent laptimes, and eventually I was into 2nd due to pitstops. I started making a lot of mistakes and lost a lot of time, so when I stopped for options on lap 8, I came out in 14th place. I quickly took care of Chandhok at T10, and Glock on the exit of T11. I set about chasing down Button and took 11th away from him on the long straight the following lap. Petrov was 2 seconds ahead, but I managed to close in and take 10th place on the long straight again. Kubica, however, was too far ahead for me, and I was unable to catch him.
I wasn’t really expecting a lot from this race anyway, China is arguably my weakest track to drive. Fortunately for me, neither Webber or Button scored points, so I didn’t lose out to 2 of my closest rivals. But now, the championship is remarkably close.

Catalunya next, an enjoyable track to drive and, of course, the beginning of the European season.
