    I found it hilarious, Adolf Drewtler.

    2) We move on to another narrow and tight circuit at Canada. Explain to everyone a bit about your thoughts on the circuit and what it takes to achieve a fast lap time.

    This is going to be a close one. Low times again but with more room to breathe and less challenge the battle at the front is going to be close. I haven't had much luck here. DNF'ing the past two seasons.

    3) Last season, we saw @Jerry Moorrees grab his first ever pole position. Will we see a new polesitter at Canada for Season 9 compared to previous races? How close will the entire field be from front to back?

    - Almost certainly, and it depends on the field but i'd say less than 2 seconds.

    4) Predict the following positions:
    - Polesitter / Time
    - Winner - Sean
    - 5th - Saif
    - 11th - Bcolli

    5) Ask @Martijn Boontje a question . . . about anything.

    You seem to be very into your boats. Therefore, let me ask you a historic boating question. You may be aware of the conspiracy theory surrounding the Titantic and her sister ship the Olympic. After an incident occurred between the Olympic and HMS Hawke in 1911 causing damage and the possible delay of the maiden voyage for the titanic itself, the two ships had allegedly been swapped prior to the maiden voyage to ensure that the Olympic sunk deliberately so they did not have to pay the repairs and could claim insurance. One of the most elaborate insurance scams of all time, if it is true. So let me ask you. What's your opinion on Jurassic World?

    I'm indifferent. I am gonna call Andrew "Drew Marie Balestre" from now on though.,

    2) We move on to another narrow and tight circuit at Canada. Explain to everyone a bit about your thoughts on the circuit and what it takes to achieve a fast lap time.
    Two words: Corner Cuts.

    3) Last season, we saw @Jerry Moorrees grab his first ever pole position. Will we see a new polesitter at Canada for Season 9 compared to previous races? How close will the entire field be from front to back?
    Closeish. 2.5-3 seconds?

    4) Predict the following positions:
    - Polesitter / Time: Klay with his AOR S13 lines. Probably 57 seconds.
    - Winner: Mitchell
    - 5th: Guy
    - 11th: SheLlay

    It was a good laugh

    2) We move on to another narrow and tight circuit at Canada. Explain to everyone a bit about your thoughts on the circuit and what it takes to achieve a fast lap time.

    I have no idea, as a low DF setup could gain you 2-3ths on the back straights but is it worth it in the corners?

    3) Last season, we saw @Jerry Moorrees grab his first ever pole position. Will we see a new polesitter at Canada for Season 9 compared to previous races? How close will the entire field be from front to back?

    I think Mikey will grab another pole


    4) Predict the following positions:
    - Polesitter / Time - Mikey
    - Winner - Shellay
    - 5th Drew
    - 11th Guy

    5) Ask @Martijn Boontje a question . . . about anything. Why didnt you race in Monoco?

    Just like at any race conducted whether small or big, a driver's meeting is important to give any updates/reminders, entertain questions, and wish everyone the best of luck in the race. I tried to keep it as upbeat as possible. I may not do this every week, but occasionally I think it's necessary.

    2) We move on to another narrow and tight circuit at Canada. Explain to everyone a bit about your thoughts on the circuit and what it takes to achieve a fast lap time.

    The track is very big on momentum and if you lose the momentum in the back part of the circuit, then your lap time will suffer. I consider this my home GP even though it's across the border, so I would really like to do well here. Although statistically I, like Mikey, tend to DNF here more than any other circuit based on past history.

    3) Last season, we saw @Jerry Moorrees grab his first ever pole position. Will we see a new polesitter at Canada for Season 9 compared to previous races? How close will the entire field be from front to back?

    I think it's possible for any midfield driver to get to the sharp end of the grid here - it all depends on how much downforce you're willing to part with. My vote is for @GuytheGuy17 to grab his first pole position.

    4) Predict the following positions:
    - Polesitter / Time
    : Guy / 1:07.7
    - Winner : Shellay
    - 5th : Klay
    - 11th : Vithjalmen

    5) Ask @Martijn Boontje a question . . . about anything.

    When you inevitably wind up in America, where is the first city you want to visit?

    I didn't actually hear it I wasn't in the lobby at the time, what was even said? @Andrew Wood

    I like it! Best way to go fast, don't crash :)

    Mikey will get pole

    - 5th - Mikey
    - 11th - Mikey

    Hmmm

    Love it. But I'm really not the person to tell you how to be fast here.

    3) Last season, we saw @jerry Moorreesgrab his first ever pole position. Will we see a new polesitter at Canada for Season 9 compared to previous races? How close will the entire field be from front to back?
    Potentially. I think it's one of the circuits where these kinds of unlikely pole sitters happen. I'm going to say 2.2s

    4) Predict the following positions:
    - Polesitter / Time Klay/1.09.8
    - Winner Klay
    - 5th Tom
    - 11th Vithjalmen

    5) Ask @Martijn Boontje a question . . . about anything.

    Sure

    It's my favourite circuit, I like how it rewards braking because there are a lot of medium-large braking zones where trail braking is required. In general, I enjoy flying through the chicanes.
    I used to race a lot on this circuit in the past. And speed comes with practice, I suppose. Don't think I'll have it on this game, but it'll probably be where I'm at my peak pace wise.

    3) Last season, we saw @Jerry Moorrees grab his first ever pole position. Will we see a new polesitter at Canada for Season 9 compared to previous races? How close will the entire field be from front to back?
    I hope it'll be spread out lol, I always bottle it in close grids

    4) Predict the following positions:
    - Polesitter / Time Klay
    - Winner Klay
    - 5th me
    - 11th Drew

    5) Ask @Martijn Boontje a question . . . about anything.
    You say you were here for a while. When was your first race and how did it go?

    Ooohhh be careful what you wish for. Irish people are probably best at fighting, talking and drinking these days, not sure any of these skills would be applicable here.
