    Round 19: - Tuesday - 1/8/2017 - 20:00 BST
    Drivers' World Championship Leader: Mike W


    Constructors' World Championship Leader: Mercedes
    FIA Pole Trophy: Mikey Woolford (3)
    DHL Fastest Lap Award: Sean B (4)*​


    Announcement(s)

    Thank you for not pressing ''Start Race'' so fast in COTA

    Questions:

    Everyone: For once, we had a fairly straight forward race in COTA which showed that the two major championship contenders filtered to the front as usual. With a gap of 24 points between Mikey and Alex, who is the favourite?

    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again?

    Everyone: Obviously the most used passing zone will be the long pit straight into turn 1. The gap between the start line and T1 could mean a huge group of cars entering turn 1, how unsafe do you feel this is?

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most likely to build a wall?
    B) Most likely to own a Prius?

    Everyone: What is your opinion on Mexican food?

    Everyone: Please predict your;

    Think at the last race will be decided for the championship. Think Alex is the favourite.

    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again?
    Think so. But imo his race pace wasnt that great. Was keeping up on him last race.

    Everyone: Obviously the most used passing zone will be the long pit straight into turn 1. The gap between the start line and T1 could mean a huge group of cars entering turn 1, how unsafe do you feel this is? Think the same as COTA everyone is gonna take it carefully

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most likely to build a wall? You mikey
    B) Most likely to own a Prius? Again you mikey sorry:p

    Everyone: What is your opinion on Mexican food? Think its good

    I missed COTA but I'd say Mikey given his lead, but I expect Alex to close the gap by seasons end
    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again?
    I wouldn't say they're too similar, but I believe Harry has the qualy pace to challenge for pole
    Everyone: Obviously the most used passing zone will be the long pit straight into turn 1. The gap between the start line and T1 could mean a huge group of cars entering turn 1, how unsafe do you feel this is?
    Well judging by Xbox AOR last year very unsafe :p But it's our job to keep it clean
    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most likely to build a wall? Andrew's profile picture is literally Trump so... ;)
    B) Most likely to own a Prius? Me because I don't care which road car I drive (not that I have one, I just wouldn't mind driving one)

    Everyone: What is your opinion on Mexican food?
    Never tried it but I like spicy stuff
    Everyone: Please predict your;

    This week I can join again! :thumbsup:

    Everyone: For once, we had a fairly straight forward race in COTA which showed that the two major championship contenders filtered to the front as usual. With a gap of 24 points between Mikey and Alex, who is the favourite? Both had their ups and downs. Lets see who can keep the momentum up! That will decide the championship.

    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again? Yes.

    Everyone: Obviously the most used passing zone will be the long pit straight into turn 1. The gap between the start line and T1 could mean a huge group of cars entering turn 1, how unsafe do you feel this is? It should not be an issue.

    Everyone: What is your opinion on Mexican food? Much appreciated!

    Race Winner: Mikey
    2nd Alex

    Definetly Mikey, as he has everything in his hands, but untill the last corner of the last lap on the last race nothing is decided

    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again?

    If he is a man then no, but as he tends to be a pussy and turning on the line i think he will get pole again

    Everyone: Obviously the most used passing zone will be the long pit straight into turn 1. The gap between the start line and T1 could mean a huge group of cars entering turn 1, how unsafe do you feel this is?

    Depends on the drivers but i think that there might be a bit of a carnage in T1, just hoping not to be there

    Alex because he is beginning to be #blessed once again.

    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again?
    I expect him to be absent.

    Would rather run head first into Islamic State territory with a sign saying "shoot me".

    I would say Mikey wants it more so I think he is going to get it. Alex is completely checked out from championship mode and this game.

    Everyone: In my opinion COTA and Mexico are very similar tracks, with a fast flowing section followed by a slow twisty part with a long straight in the middle. On the similar layout last week Harry was dominant over one lap, do you expect him to do the same again?

    Perhaps when he races again ....

    Everyone: Obviously the most used passing zone will be the long pit straight into turn 1. The gap between the start line and T1 could mean a huge group of cars entering turn 1, how unsafe do you feel this is?

    I have full confidence that the guys in this league are going to take care of each other in to turn 1 and we will all get out unscathed.

    Everyone: Who is the driver who is;
    A) The most likely to build a wall? Alex
    B) Most likely to own a Prius? Guy

    It's pretty good. I like enchiladas especially.

    Sorry guys I'm working late all this month so will miss the remaining races by the looks of it. I was hoping to switch a couple of the shifts to mornings but unfortunately I can't.

    Good luck for the rest of the season and hopefully the championship between wooly and Alex goes down to the wire in Abu Dhabi.
