    Reminder: Everyone please review the league rules in particular rule #1 and the section(s) on clean and fair racing. Any pushing another driver off the track, shunting from behind without waiting, or any other deemed unclean and unfair racing tactic will be taken to the stewards for assessment of penalties on drivers found guilty of this. Happy racing





    Questions:

    1.) Do you consider China to be a fun track to drive or more of a headache or bore?
    2.) At this point, are you satisfied with the car you are in or would you like or consider a switch to a different car?
    3.) Different cultures and nations have different holidays they celebrate throughout the year. Is there a holiday not celebrated in your own country that you wouldn't mind celebrating in your own country?

  2. 1. Gives me headaches all the time
    2. I would like to switch to Toro Rosso has nice handling and a nice livery.
    3. In Ireland, I am happy with the holidays that we have.
     
  3. 1. I'd rather take a dump than driving on this track...
    2. I chose it for a reason :rolleyes: That car would have been perfect if it wasn't for the front...
    3. Nah, don't think so. But I'm open for anything
     
  4. I hate the starts
    What do those with wheels do. Ive retired 3 races in a row now from spinning at start
     
  5. If you're getting too much wheelspin, put on about 40-50% throttle at the lights, then when the lights go out, build up the revs and that should give you a good, wheelspin free start.

  7. Thanks for letting us know. Maybe a "lesser" connection will slow you down lol
     
  8. Well I did say I didn't fancy my chances tonight and at Spain. Although the laps times I've been putting round catalunya is scary.
     
  9. define "scary". 1:15s, 114s? Spain is a much easier track to take the fight to someone. China is just a terrible track imo.
     
  10. 1.) Do you consider China to be a fun track to drive or more of a headache or bore? headache and a bore
    2.) At this point, are you satisfied with the car you are in or would you like or consider a switch to a different car? Yes. I fell in love with the Williams the first time I drove it online. I just naturally felt comfortable in it although I always practiced with the ferrari offline.
    3.) Different cultures and nations have different holidays they celebrate throughout the year. Is there a holiday not celebrated in your own country that you wouldn't mind celebrating in your own country? Carnaval - Brazil, lol.
     
  11. I'm in the mid 21 region. I'm basing it off my other leagues pace where everyone else in in the 22s.
     
  12. very nice. I'll take that challenge to beat those times
     
  13. Ok the real question is....what times are you around china
     
  14. 1:34s
     
  15. I'm very inconsistent, anything between a 37 dead to a low 38.

  18. Where are u?
     
  19. Don't feel very well so decided not to race tonight. Sorry for not saying that earlier, hope you all have a good race
     
  20. Quali - 2nd - Had a poor 1st run, gave up on the 2nd. Went for 5 laps of fuel so when we collided, it didn't cause any harm so no penalty is needed.

    Race - Had a beauty of a start and decided to stick it in rich for the first few laps, thankfully opened up a gap as I started making sloppy errors during the rest of the stint. Moved onto primes and didn't feel comfortable, nothing really happened in this stint. Options at the end felt so good and allowed me to maintain a gap.

    I just have to thank my controller for lasting. And apologise for spoiling races.
