    Announcements

    Sorry. I've been at Center Parcs and not been able to do this.

    Questions to drivers:
    Everyone: We reach what many consider to be the home of Motorsport, Silverstone in England. What are your opinions on the track? Most notably, what do you feel about the new revisions to the track, removing the famous bridge corner and alike?

    Everyone: Alex finally got his season back on track in Austria with a superb drive to bring himself back into 2nd in the WDC and bring Mercedes to within a single point of Red Bull in the constructors. Do you think he can continue this new vein of form?

    Everyone: There are two distinct portions to this Silverstone circuit. The slow and steady Sectors 1 and 3 with the fast flowing middle sector in between. Which is your favourite?

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?

    Well first of all I hoped you had an enjoyable break from... being sober.
    Secondly, Sean needs to stop setting the fastest lap.

    I think I like it more now than I did before. I never saw the bridge corner as being that special tbh.

    Let's hope so. Can't have the championship being a 1-horse race.

    Everyone: There are two distinct portions to this Silverstone circuit. The slow and steady Sectors 1 and 3 with the fast flowing middle sector in between. Which is your favourite?
    None of them. Sector 2 if I had a wheel.

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?
    1) Mitchell
    2) Alex
    3) Mazais

    i think the old layout that was run in the mid 2000's was better, bc a few corners are not that enjoyable at the new part.

    it it's dry yes :)

    Fast is always better, it just seperates the men from the boys

    Silverstone is one of my favorite tracks to drive, and I also happen to be pretty good at it. I only played one F1 game with the bridge turn and to be honest I can't even remember the shape of that track so I am just very used to the new layout.

    Only time will tell really. Alex has been pretty underwhelming so far this season compared to expectations, so I think he's going to continue to struggle. Mikey has yet to have his turn of bad luck though, so I think the championship battle will continue with hopefully a couple of other players.

    Sector 2 is definitely my most favorite as all the time on your lap is pretty much determined here.

    Racing is mostly a mind game, my friend. Don't ever forget that ;)

    Nobody has said they aren't attending. But at the same time, I did get this up a little behind schedule....

    As a track I enjoy it, but on this game its probably my worst track so not looking forward to it.

    I dont think so, from what I've seen Woolford is absolutely the guy to beat

    I suck at every section of this track, not looking forward to any of it

    I don't like Silverstone TBH, I've never driven the old layout in a game but it doesn't look much better. The maggets and becketts corners and luffield are corners most love but I personally don't enjoy, the first sector and copse are nice though :p Also having to qualify on mediums to stand any chance in the race is annoying.

    He's a good driver so I don't see why not :)

    I like the "slower" sectors for the reasons mentioned in the first question, they aren't really slow though, just slower than sector 2 :p

    Does that mean you're hoping for rain then? Be careful how you answer ...

    Not necessarily :p I mean if everyone has to qualify on mediums it's even but I just find it annoying going for your best time on the slower tyre, like you could just bolt on some softs and beat everyone but you cant because it will screw your race, like a free ticket to P1 is right in front of your eyes but when you reach for it it disappears, ya know? :D
