    Q1:
    I would have said me but it's Suzuka so. Maybe Walsh.
    Q2:
    Dreadful. Someone should bomb the place several times over.
    Q3:
    A) I've had a massive argument with Tom when I first raced here, so I'll put him.
    B) if I'm honest, wooly. He's been driving very aggressively recently, it needs to bite him back.

    Pole Alex
    Win Alex
    2nd Harry
    3rd Woody
    6th Tom

    RBOS although it wouldn't be a surprise with his pace.

    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?
    Love it. My favourite circuit to drive and to watch. The Japanese fans are awesome, Sector 1 is insane, the track has so many memorable moments.

    Well I'm the highest person on the table without a win so far, so I would like to say me ... but I'm just not quick enough in this league. Realistically it'll be RBOS, Mitchell, or Sean before me.

    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?

    I've had a lot of success at this track - several league wins and the track definitely plays to some of my advantages.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most mentally unstable

    Huh? Sorry, but I don't find this question productive or sportsmanlike whatsoever.

    B) The most likely to end up crashing at 130r

    Cas - he seems to have a loose rear end in high aero corners :p

    Pole Sitter and Time Mikey : 1:33.4

    Think me i guess. The pace was good last week so hopefully Japan is going good for me.

    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?
    Like it a lot actually. Like the first sector a lot but im going to lose some time in the 3rd sector

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most mentally unstable: i dont know

    I think Drew will come along with a race win, while qualifying 10th..

    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?

    I was crap when I used assists so i plan to be even worse


    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most mentally unstable - I've got to say me, I instantly lose my **** BUT I've got better over the course of the season, my **** shouldn't get lost as much hopefully.

    Just to clarify, I get natty because I try and be as fair as possible to everyone and when I dont feel thats returned I become mentally unstable ;-) - I also have an unfortunate tendency to speak my mind no matter what when it comes to the defence of myself and others and I know the majority of you probably dont like me for that but thats life.


    B) The most likely to end up crashing at 130r - Me after losing my **** and binning it.

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Pole Sitter and Time - Mikey - no idea of time
    Race Winner - Drew
    2nd - Alex
    3rd - Wooly
    6th - Sean

    I personally disliked Suzuka last season aswell. Now however It seems I got a nice flow around here. If I can improve sector 2 a bit than I'm quite liking the track. Aiming for a good result! Lets hope I still can be consistent and fast.

    I'd say Sean but RBOS and Woody could win too, if I can win they can :p Also Walsh but he doesn't really count having only done 2 races
    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?
    It's a cool track but in the game it isn't so great, kinda like Spa I feel, some of the corners just feel weird to drive
    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most mentally unstable
    I aint starting beef ;)
    B) The most likely to end up crashing at 130r
    No-one, how do you crash at 130R? I's easy flat :p Maybe there'll be a crash between multiple cars.

    I have no clue. Guy? I'll say Guy.

    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?

    I really like it, its a lot of fun to drive, but the strategy is very one way.

    Aight seeming as I have no work for the next two days, I think that gives me plenty of time to get used to my new wheel. Therefore I am leaning towards running this race with it and so I will spend most of the race in the gravel.

    If I feel like I'm too much of a danger to people I will pussy out and use my pad but, as @alex1994128 said, this is the best place to learn :sick:

    If I'm there, I should make qualy as well.

    Btw shellay, you'll get used to it fast. I was competitive after 3 days, especially if you compare to pad.

    yeah i think the remaining races are a good test considering that this league has a good skill differential to really access your progress from race to race.

    So far, no one has reported an absence tomorrow so I'm assuming we will have 22...

    I don't know whether it's a surprise or if he's already won this season but Sean looked strong at Sepang so if he can continue that in Japan I'll go with him.

    Everyone: I personally dislike Suzuka, what's your opinion on it?

    I don't mind the layout but S1 feels quite frustrating with understeer on F1 2016, it should be a lot more fun than it is through that section. Overtaking isn't the easiest either so qualifying will be important.

    Probably me binning it off the exit kerb.

    What are you on about?! Are you having flashbacks to my horrible exit at the double right-hander at Malaysia? ;-p My car control is mad, just not when I'm not focused, haha.
