Questions to drivers:

1.After a tight and twisty Hungary to very much a power track of Spa, will you have to change your driving style to adapt to this weekends GP?

2.Spa often can spice stuff up and we have had no rain this season in the races, would you like a sprinkle of rain come face day?

3.Will anyone go side by side by up Eau Rouge and survive?

4. Is 2nd the real pole around here?

5. Your Predictions:
Pole- (laptime)
1st-
2nd-
3rd-
Myself-

1.After a tight and twisty Hungary to very much a power track of Spa, will you have to change your driving style to adapt to this weekends GP? Way more agressive due to me not having to save tyres

2.Spa often can spice stuff up and we have had no rain this season in the races, would you like a sprinkle of rain come face day?
Considering my pace in christmas cup then yes plzzz

3.Will anyone go side by side by up Eau Rouge and survive? Not if they're side by side with you

4. Is 2nd the real pole around here?
1st defo isn't, 2nd or 3rd are the best places to start at
5. Your Predictions:
Pole- (laptime) Very low 1:43
1st- klay
2nd- falcon
3rd- me(if I race)
Myself- 3rd

It's a very different track for sure, with so much less downforce on the cars cornering will certainly be different and you need to be a lot more patient and cautious because of it.
2.Spa often can spice stuff up and we have had no rain this season in the races, would you like a sprinkle of rain come race day?
In the Christmas cup I was rapid in the wet, however I'm not sure it will translate to the 2017 cars. Since I seem to have the pace to be at the front in the dry I'd rather not have things spiced up :p
3.Will anyone go side by side by up Eau Rouge and survive?
Probably, if one of them backs out.
4. Is 2nd the real pole around here?
Honestly I don't think the kemmel straight 1st lap OP is that big, if you're 1st hugging the inside should be enough if you're running low downforce. Then again I always seem to qualify P2 or P3 so I wouldn't mind :D
5. Your Predictions:
Pole- 1:42.8 (assuming no Falcon qualy ban)
1st- Falcon
2nd- Me
3rd- Sam
Myself- P2 will be decent enough

Will try to drive in the same style as Hungary. This is a very good track for me and I've got time to practice this week so I've got high hopes for this race.

2.Spa often can spice stuff up and we have had no rain this season in the races, would you like a sprinkle of rain come face day?
At this point I'm basically the anti- @xXVik-StarRxX cause we haven't had rain all season apart from a couple of minutes here and there. I'd like a dry qualy and race.

3.Will anyone go side by side by up Eau Rouge and survive?
And survive? Probably not.

4. Is 2nd the real pole around here?
Yup, P1 is gonna get mugged on lap 1.

5. Your Predictions:
Pole- 1:42.877
1st- Myself
2nd- @RC Sam14
3rd- @maxtheracer
Myself- Going all in on trying to win this one.

I actually prefer tracks like Spa, they're fun to drive and fairly easy to master, which helps with my transition to the wheel
2.Spa often can spice stuff up and we have had no rain this season in the races, would you like a sprinkle of rain come race day?
First off I corrected the word race in your quote, you're British, you should be able to spell every word in the English dictionary. Second, yes.
3.Will anyone go side by side by up Eau Rouge and survive?
Maybe
4. Is 2nd the real pole around here?
Can Honda build a good engine?
5. Your Predictions:
Pole- 1.42:817
1st- @Curly
2nd- @Klayyyyyy
3rd- @RC Wallen
Myself- P6

I think we all do tbh because of how different the track is.

2.Spa often can spice stuff up and we have had no rain this season in the races, would you like a sprinkle of rain come face day?
I'm actually starting to question if @Curly has coded in dry weather for lobbies because this dry streak is ridiculous. I'm a pad runner I need every chance of having rain. ;)
3.Will anyone go side by side by up Eau Rouge and survive?
If they're wheel users then sure.
4. Is 2nd the real pole around here?
Yeah I'd agree
5. Your Predictions:
Pole- (laptime) Whatever @Cherry2pie decides to do considering he's now a god

Just a heads up for tonight, the online servers are really playing up at the moment, the lobby itself is fine but it’s very difficult to make a lobby and it keeps saying failed to create a session. This happened to cherry and brown too

Ok just a clarification. @maxtheracer you can qualify as normal tonight. However I'd like to remind you to actually check the forums in future so that you don't miss information that relates to you. For future reference, if you or anyone has a qualifying ban, you are not meant to set any time at all. As what happened in Hungary could've easily caused you to start in front of another car, you're fortunate that wasn't the case. However as you made sure to be behind all those that were allowed to qualify I'll consider your qualifying ban from Austria as served. If this happens in future, you would receive a penalty for ignoring the stewards decision, so please check the forums before the race.

Since it's 99.9% certain I'm not racing tonight, can I watch the race as a spectator?
If there is no space for you then yes you can spectate.

Race ruined by two brainless decisions. One when someone went for a gap that was always going to disappear and then I just had to screw it up by trying to avoid a spinning car( how hard can it be to control your car??) and instead hitting him straight on.
