    Questions:

    1.) Some of the most exciting and anticipated races are coming up as the season comes to a close. Which are you looking forward to the most?
    2.) Any predictions for the final races of the season?
     
  2. I won't be there for this and next week's race
     
  3. I'll be there most likely.

    Words cannot express how much I despise this track
     
  4. If I win this weekend it will be a miracle.

    I'm looking forward to my best track this year in Sochi, also Brazil.

    Predictions would be we get another wet race before the end of the season and I get shafted at Abu Dhabi.
     
    • Haha Haha x 1
  5. I'm back this week
    1.) Some of the most exciting and anticipated races are coming up as the season comes to a close. Which are you looking forward to the most? H8 all these last tracks that are away from Europe. Gonna have to try very hard

    2.) Any predictions for the final races of the season?
    Is it double points ? Abu Dhabi isbthe only track out of last few that I like so should be good
     
  6. 1.) Some of the most exciting and anticipated races are coming up as the season comes to a close. Which are you looking forward to the most? Definitely Brazil
    2.) Any predictions for the final races of the season? I think the battles will be intense no doubt coming into the last few races. Should provide for some good racing
     
  7. I decided to penalise myself last night since Codemasters can't spot a clear corner cut. Was the only thing stopping me from being in the 1.41s. Find it disgusting that codemasters defend this game by saying that both pad and wheel users have their own strong tracks, it should be even for everyone.

    But congrats on the win Chris.

  8. I agree the game is more forgiving with regard to corner-cutting on some tracks but I'd hardly say the few corners that you could have cut in Suzuka would have given you a 3 sec advantage. You naturally have more pace than that and have proven it on many tracks. Yet thanks for the honesty as it helps maintain the integrity that should exist in racing even with a faulty game.
