    1.) Momentum is shifting in the championship, how are you seeing yourself finishing out the second half of the season?

    I am hoping to finish in the top 3 at every race from now on until the end and hopefully fight for wins. I think the momentum is swinging to chris's side, but its F1 anything can happen.

    2.) What are your goals for the remainder of the season?

    Finish in the top 3 of every race ;)

    3.) Are you hoping for a dry race, wet race, or changeable conditions for this race?

    Any for me, i am quick in the wet conditions which would be nice to have.

    For qualifying i think we are looking into 1:14s. And tyres are going to play a big role in this race. :)

    I think I'm gonna have a strong end to the season and maybe challenge for the top spot from time to time. Gaining positions in the championship might be hard, but anything can happen once you get a win or two.
    2.) What are your goals for the remainder of the season?
    To be consistent competitive with the rest of you. Hopefully fighting over podiums weekly and maybe a win one day...
    3.) Are you hoping for a dry race, wet race, or changeable conditions for this race?
    Well I'm pretty good in the wet, or at least I believe so :p The races I enjoy the most are the mixed conditions, it are the most exciting races most of the times

    1) I reckon I'll maintain my bottom of the table position but I will get closer and closer to the pace I'd like to be at
    2) My aim is to not finish last in all the races. Not the most optimistic of goals but you gotta start somewhere ;)
    3) Dry

    If that's the way some people are gonna start driving from now on then those people better shut the **** up when it's happening to them next week. Sorry to Tubbyninja as we both got screwed out of podiums.

    Not sure what happened between you lot, to me it just looked like mikmakmok fell behind on the last corner and then went wide and hit into me - causing us both to lose about 30 seconds.

    Overall I'm pretty pleased with the race though because I shows some decent pace

    From your perspective it looks like I've just rammed you but for me you were leaving the inside line open. Guess it's just one of those things.

    Q: after the practice sessions being crashed into again with Chris i had no confidents going into qualy with the options tyres i knew i would be 3rd starting along side him or behind so i went for prime tyres in qualy. 6th ended up.

    Race: at the start i just stayed back to see how it unfolded, i knew i was coming on lap 4 for options. I noticed Chris was holding everyone up because he didn't have his wonder pace again in the race like his qualy, wonder why is that ? On my last stint Chris was closing in on me but yet again didn't have the confidents to challenge him because of practice. Ended up finishing 3rd.

    Chris you need to slow down, you are very aggressive when your overtaking its not done in one lap there is alot of laps. Far too aggressive ! I've got nothing against you but you need to think before overtaking someone. ;)

    I did not have an aggressive move in the whole race apart from maybe the on in the vid where i overtake from a long way back, and i actually wasnt planning to overtake. The incident in practice, i cut the corner to leave enough room, but u decided to stay around my outside knowing that my car has to drift wide as its impossible to keep it tight on exit on that corner.
    And what do u mean by, i wonder why that is?

    The reason for my slow first stint, i believe is that at the start i spin my wheels too much and therefore have no grip until i pit. I have practised many starts and cant get them right
