    Announcements
    Please all welcome Erik and Jani formally into the league. They took part in the Monza race but this will be their first thread with intros!

    Questions:

    Everyone: The Woolford slide seems like it wont stop any time now, with Karl a doubt Alex has once again risen to the top as the most likely driver to challenge him. After previously counting himself out of the championship pre Monaco, are you expecting Alex to take the title?

    Everyone: Monza was a terrible race, filled with carnage, incidents and lack of slipstream. It is a good thing therefore that we now head to an easier, safer track in Singapore. What are your opinions on the circuit?

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Pole Sitter and Time

    Well I honestly think that as long as he shows up Karl will win the championship, I was surprised at Woolys lack of pace at Monza, either that or I was absolutely on it.

    As dominant as Mikey was in the beginning I think he'll either pull it back and thrash the competition or itll come down to Alex & Karl.

    After his Monaco performance, Singapore is Mikeys to lose.


    Everyone: Monza was a terrible race, filled with carnage, incidents and lack of slipstream. It is a good thing therefore that we now head to an easier, safer track in Singapore. What are your opinions on the circuit?

    NO - let's go back to Monza, I had no crashes, no issues and had epic pace, even with the slipstream glitch.

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Pole Sitter and Time Alex
    Race Winner Mikey

    3rd Karl

    2) wouldn't say Singapore is easier, but I like street circuits. In the past however, safety cars screwed me bad here.

    The Woolford slide sounds extremely inappropriate.
    I don't think Alex has enough to take the title because he doesn't seem as focused as last season, but I do think the championship fight will last a little longer than we all predicted.


    Everyone: Monza was a terrible race, filled with carnage, incidents and lack of slipstream. It is a good thing therefore that we now head to an easier, safer track in Singapore. What are your opinions on the circuit?

    I was a lucky benefactor of all of the issues at Monza, so I think I need to actually drive flawlessly at Monza because my luck of good finishes in this league has to eventually run out. This is statistically my best track and was happy to finish on the podium last season so I'm hoping for some similar results.

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Pole Sitter and Time Wooly with a 1:41.0

    I'm hoping to be able to make it this week after missing the last few for various reasons.


    Everyone: The Woolford slide seems like it wont stop any time now, with Karl a doubt Alex has once again risen to the top as the most likely driver to challenge him. After previously counting himself out of the championship pre Monaco, are you expecting Alex to take the title?

    Alex has the ability so if he can get his consistency back then I'm sure he could challenge Wooly for the title.

    Everyone: Monza was a terrible race, filled with carnage, incidents and lack of slipstream. It is a good thing therefore that we now head to an easier, safer track in Singapore. What are your opinions on the circuit?

    Singapore is obviously a tough circuit and the race is always the longest of the season and with the barriers close it requires a lot of concentration from everyone. Previously I've had some good races at Singapore and I don't mind the track overall, a little bit mickey mouse in places but i do prefer the new layout over the bridge.

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Pole Sitter and Time: Alex 1:40.5
    Race Winner: Alex
    2nd: RBOS
    3rd: Wooly
    14th: Me most likely, though that is a little high. :p

    GOOD NEWS @Mikey Woolford

    Your chances of being taken out at Singapore are now significantly reduced as I have been called into work on Tuesday evening. Looks like I will never get to do a Singapore league race :(

    Questions:

    Q1: I really have no idea.

    Q2: Yes, corners, finally! Singapore is a very neat track I think. I expect big gaps in qualifying, but consistent race pace is likely to pay dividends over ultimate pace. Glitching slipstreams are not a big issue here, either. This is a really fun track in the cockpit cam - you can tickle your testicles on the walls and the track is not as bumpy as Monaco. In fact, it must be one of the smoothest tracks on calendar. Pit entry can be tricky.

    I did some old Finnish folk magic, and read a rain spell from Kalevala. Qualifying will be dry, but the race will be started on inters and finished on full wets:

    Pole: Desimpele_K 1:40.2
    1st: Mikey
    2nd: Mazais
    3rd: Me
    14th: Erik (Sorry bro I know you don't like wet weather )=

    Hey guys, please let me know soonest if you have to miss the race this week so I can work on reserves. I know sometimes your absences crop up either Monday or sometime on Tuesday but this will limit the amount of scrambling I have to do. Thanks!

    I think he definitely has the ability, so I don't see why not, I've always said he's most likely to comeback :p
