    As stated several times already, I will not be racing next week and @mallucm will be my reserve in the Ferrari.

    Everyone: After another first time winner in Suzuka, who do you think could get their first win of the season in this race?

    Saif

    Everyone: After disliking Suzuka I come to a race I adore. The COTA track is one of my favourites. What is your opinion on the track?

    It's a fun track to drive although very difficult unless you have the racing line on. I'm not very good around here, so I am happy to be sitting this one out.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The fattest? Mikey
    B) The most American, besides Drew? Saif because he adores American TV shows.

    Hopefully me. Its just my luck is bad

    Everyone: After disliking Suzuka I come to a race I adore. The COTA track is one of my favourites. What is your opinion on the track?
    Personally i dont like it that much. This track is attractive for corner cutting for me. But the racing is good there.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The fattest? Why not the thinest:p that would be pretty simple:p
    B) The most American, besides Drew?

    Questions:​

    Everyone: After another first time winner in Suzuka, who do you think could get their first win of the season in this race?

    RBOS. He has real pace and he has the line.

    Everyone: After disliking Suzuka I come to a race I adore. The COTA track is one of my favourites. What is your opinion on the track?


    The first corner is absolutely horrible without a possibility to look into the apex. I think there's another blind corner somewhere on the track as well. Apart from that, it's a pretty neat track, especially the first sector with the fast, sweeping corners.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;

    A) The fattest?

    Rofl. How would I know? I know it can't be me, though.

    B) The most American, besides Drew?


    I know Mikey has been to 'murica, so that'll do. I have some relatives over there but never visited the continent.

    Just did my first ever TT laps on the track, and I noticed you're damn quick around here.

    I thought I did a decent lap, tried to improve it for 35 more laps, without any success. Oh, and I was a second slower than you. This will be a loooong race for me...

    Might not make this one :( Hate the track anyway so along with Japan this would be my race to miss if I had to pick one
    Everyone: After another first time winner in Suzuka, who do you think could get their first win of the season in this race?
    Walsh if he counts
    Everyone: After disliking Suzuka I come to a race I adore. The COTA track is one of my favourites. What is your opinion on the track?
    Well on cockpit cam T1 and T19 are invisible, and the rest of the track just isn't to my liking, so it's probably in my bottom 3 TBH
    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The fattest? Uhh no idea :p
    B) The most American, besides Drew?
    Well my username suggests me... But other than that I'm not "American" at all, so IDK

    If I don't win this one, I may as well set fire to my wheel. I've been immense here in the past so its full sweat mode this week.
    Everyone: After another first time winner in Suzuka, who do you think could get their first win of the season in this race?
    I don't think anyone will take their first win here, I think the winner will be a repeat winner.

    Everyone: After disliking Suzuka I come to a race I adore. The COTA track is one of my favourites. What is your opinion on the track?
    I used to despise it, then I started practicing for it in S12 and found it to be my favourite on the game by a country mile. I adore this circuit.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The fattest? Shellay, almost as fat as me, we're a ginormous pair.
    B) The most American, besides Drew? I couldn't give less of a ****. Sorry.

    Everyone: How many safety cars will we get?
    2 because this circuit is aids for them.

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Pole Sitter and Time: Me, 1:35.5

    Going to have to rely on good race pace here because my overall car speed isn't quite there.

    Honestly at this point the jury is out on what exactly is going to happen in order to **** me this race.

    Maybe itll put me on wet tyres on a dry track.

    Everyone: After another first time winner in Suzuka, who do you think could get their first win of the season in this race?

    I hope it's me, RBOS and Walsh also look very good shouts.

    Everyone: After disliking Suzuka I come to a race I adore. The COTA track is one of my favourites. What is your opinion on the track?

    One of my favourite circuits on the calendar, I always find a great flow around it and out of 5 races I've done here in the leagues over the years I've won twice and finished 2nd twice including last season, should of won the race last season if the game didn't bug out the SC and give Lynchy a free pit stop.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The fattest?: Mikey going by his latest weigh in
    B) The most American, besides Drew?: Me (strange as it sounds)

    Everyone: How many safety cars will we get?: 1

    I really like Suzuka, it was disappointing to disconnect before the race. I dislike the track at Austin, too easy to cut corners

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The fattest?: Shellay
    B) The most American, besides Drew?: Don't know

    Everyone: How many safety cars will we get?: 1-2

    Guys, I have a problem. A thunderstorm is gathering over where I live. Living in an old house in the middle of nowhere, thunderstorms tend to cut my electricity off. Furthermore, the high voltage surge has a high chance of destroying any electronics plugged in. So, I think there's a need for a reserve driver to fill me in. There's still a chance it passes by and I can take part, but no guarantee. I understand if the reserve driver wants to know it early rather than wait out until close to the start of quali to see how it's gonna be - if that's the case, have my spot tonight, please. :)
