    Announcements

    - Please welcome Cas as the new full time driver, his official car will be decided shortly

    Questions to drivers:
    Everyone: Karl is on a roll right now and it would appear that nobody is able to touch him. What are the chances that he can make it 3/3 in Germany?

    Everyone: Germany has alternated between the Hockenheimring (my computer wants me to change this to 'Chickenhearted' and Nurburgring ('Burglarizing'). Which of these two tracks is your favourite?

    Everyone: Woolford is on a bit of a slump right now, having failed to produce the goods in his past 4 races. Is this a sign of just a bad run of form, or have the rest of the grid managed to catch up?

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

    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?

    1) Pretty good I would say. I think Alex will have the best chance of stopping him.
    2) Of the two I prefer driving Nurburgring, but I'm not really a fan of either layout.
    3) Maybe he got too scared of me ;)
    4)
    Karl
    Alex
    Me

    5) Hope so. Means turn 1 will be taken at smaller speeds and less chances for me to cut it.

    3 in a row would be quite the achievement in this league, while I'm sure Karl will be up there I wont back him to win again, this is league racing, something always goes wrong at some point ;)

    The old layouts of both circuits were better but of the new ones I'd just say Hockenheim due to how it allows side by side action, haven't driven the Nurburgring in years though.

    I've only been here for the last 3 races so don't know what he's like when he's going well but I reckon the rest of the grid have caught up
    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?
    1. Alex
    2. Karl
    3. Me (as always, will happen someday! :p)
    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?
    I'd give it a 15-20% chance of being a wet race

    germany is a good track for me unlike hungary, so i hope that they are not so big :)

    OLD HOCKENHEIMRING!! but of these two the N├╝rburgring, because it has much more flowing corners which is sth i like much more

    he extended his championchip lead, which is all he needs to do really!

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

    1. Myself
    2. Wooly
    3. Karl

    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?

    I wasn't here for Hungary but I know in Silverstone he drove a very dominant race so I'm sure he'll be strong again in Germany.

    Everyone: Germany has alternated between the Hockenheimring (my computer wants me to change this to 'Chickenhearted' and Nurburgring ('Burglarizing'). Which of these two tracks is your favourite?

    I'd probably say Nurburgring is my favourite out of the two but i don't mind Hockenheim either, maybe it would be better with the old layout through the forest.

    Everyone: Woolford is on a bit of a slump right now, having failed to produce the goods in his past 4 races. Is this a sign of just a bad run of form, or have the rest of the grid managed to catch up?

    Probably just a bad run of form and some bad luck but clearly Karl has stepped up his game in the last two races and Alex will always be there or thereabouts as well.

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

    1. Alex
    2. Karl
    3. Wooly


    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?

    I haven't seen it rain much at Hockenheim when I've raced there but F1 2016 does like to throw in more rain than real life. I'd say around a 40% chance of rain.

    It will be hard as it is getting rather tight at the pointy end of the grid. He will really need to try in order to stay out front.

    Everyone: Germany has alternated between the Hockenheimring (my computer wants me to change this to 'Chickenhearted' and Nurburgring ('Burglarizing'). Which of these two tracks is your favourite?

    Definitely no doubt the Nurburgring. I love everything about that track.

    Everyone: Woolford is on a bit of a slump right now, having failed to produce the goods in his past 4 races. Is this a sign of just a bad run of form, or have the rest of the grid managed to catch up?

    I would say a little bit of both. Has worked to my benefit allowing me to close my gap to the points leader in two successive races which I haven't done much in recent past.

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

    1. Harry
    2. Mikey
    3. Me


    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?

    Let's hope not.

    Pretty good I think, but I know Alex, myself and others are strong here so he may have a harder time than usual.

    Everyone: Germany has alternated between the Hockenheimring (my computer wants me to change this to 'Chickenhearted' and Nurburgring ('Burglarizing'). Which of these two tracks is your favourite?
    Based on the fact i haven't driven the Nurburgring on an F1 game since 2013 when I used assists, i can't really compare. On Project Cars and Assetto Corsa I prefer the 'ring but for F1 I'm partial to Hockenheim.

    Everyone: Woolford is on a bit of a slump right now, having failed to produce the goods in his past 4 races. Is this a sign of just a bad run of form, or have the rest of the grid managed to catch up?
    A combo of the two I think. He's not been on his best form but other drivers have really been on it recently. His Hungary campaign wasn't exactly helped by the wild antics of a certain @Shly38 though so we'll see.

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

    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?
    I hope so, I tend to be decent in the wet and it means I won't have to deal with the shitty tyre wear here.

    High.

    Everyone: Germany has alternated between the Hockenheimring (my computer wants me to change this to 'Chickenhearted' and Nurburgring ('Burglarizing'). Which of these two tracks is your favourite?
    I have always preferred burglarizing to chickenhearted, especially on the older games. Although on F1 2016, Hockenheim is actually bearable.

    If he spent less time taking me out, maybe he wouldn't be in this slump :whistling:

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

    Thanks for welcoming me, Mikey!

    Everyone: Karl is on a roll right now and it would appear that nobody is able to touch him. What are the chances that he can make it 3/3 in Germany?
    I think he has a very good chance of winning again. He won the Dutch league race last week as well, so he seems to be on a roll.

    Everyone: Germany has alternated between the Hockenheimring (my computer wants me to change this to 'Chickenhearted' and Nurburgring ('Burglarizing'). Which of these two tracks is your favourite?
    I have to admit I only know Hockenheimring, so I find it pretty hard to answer this question. ;-p

    Everyone: Woolford is on a bit of a slump right now, having failed to produce the goods in his past 4 races. Is this a sign of just a bad run of form, or have the rest of the grid managed to catch up?
    I think both, but since I just joined this league it is very hard for me to compare.

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

    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?
    I hope not

    It will depend on the people around me :p

    Nurburgring for sure altho I have to admit the long straight on hockenheim with this game's slipstream is pretty fun tbh...

    Everyone: Woolford is on a bit of a slump right now, having failed to produce the goods in his past 4 races. Is this a sign of just a bad run of form, or have the rest of the grid managed to catch up?

    Probably a bit of both. I don't think someone thought he would run away with it to start with (if I'm allowed to say that?) I think the grid is pretty close and with the points gap still there, I don't think that much will change in that regard, I just hope it changes just enough ^^

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

    1) Alex
    2) Wooly
    3) Andrew (you're mad if you don't start putting him on the podium lol)

    Everyone: Will it be a wet race for a change?

    Haven't practiced wet yet but getting better and better in it, even getting winning pace on it so I don't mind either.

    Tbh I think that this is another track where most people have pace. Even I might be able to reach the dizzy heights of the top 7.

    I mean I have just looked at TT and there are 6 people within half a second of each other so I think it will be who can nail a lap.

    First race since Canada where I am turning up to the race feeling relatively off the pace. I'm just praying I don't continue my recent habit of disconnecting...
