Thanks everyone :). I didn't really know what to expect today because I only had done half a race and 3 fast laps just before the lobby, but I remember practising quite a bit for this track a few months ago when I hit low 33 and so I was starting to believe in a good race when one of those 3 laps was a 33.6.

The qualifying came and couldn't deliver which made me a bit sad, at the same time being weirded out that @TyranoTigger didn't go first :p.

The race started and got a jump start on @Jthorn97 which gave me the lead. The lead was ok untill my tyres ran out and had to pit. Then on options I could push and create the gap, I expected to drop off at the end of the stint but actually the gap kept increasing, even if it was only a little. Then the primes came and I knew I could lose around 1s a lap. There was no managing as I had to go full attack the entire time and seeing the guys behind me gaining with a bit more than 1s a lap made it quite interesting. The top 3 then pretty much pulling sector after sector and luckily for me the positions didn't change ^^

I read it back and the start with my lack of practice sounds quite schmuck but it's honest. Hopefully it's ok otherwise I'll leave it out next time. I guess it's just a nice track for me as the pace was pretty good :).

In real time it was like it happened in slow motion. I could see it coming a mile off. Don't do it Birkoff, don't do it.... He did it :(
To be honest i was still so excited i was still alive until the crash. you can see off the start i get pinched between Andrei and Nico and I thought I was going to die there. Luckily I escaped but unfortunately Birkoff got caught up on the kerbs it looks like and I was just in the wrong spot.

I think that it's clear that it was his mistake, but I can assure you that he didn't do that intentionally. I think that everybody at some point has done a spin on a curb and got thrown into a direction he couldn't control. But if you refer to the fact that you saw @Bcolt93 's DNF coming, well I predicted it before the race :eek:
Did Kvyat maybe planted some kind of crash-magnet on your car?:wtf:

i will never drive Kvyat's car on 2016 thats for sure. there's a few cars I'd like to race in for 2016, top 3 right now are Renault, Haas and Manor. As much as I love Red Bull the car has clearly brought me no luck.

It'll be Force India for me I think (@TyranoTigger let them see the T-Cams for themselves when the game drops and watch the horror)

when you have waited a full season to finally drive the ferrari and you have seen the T-cam shots

To be fair all the top teams have horrific T-CAMS. Makes no sense to me why they would design F1 race star cameras. It just makes the game look ridiculous. I mean look at the size of the fucking tyres.

The lighting on the F1 games has always been a major step below other racing games like pcars and Forza which leads to the overall graphics looking worse

To be honest that doesn't exactly look that bad to me - I hope I can nag this one for myself next year, especially after being annoyingly jumped in the pits last night by RacingGreen in the Ferrari :cautious:
Inb4 the weird pitlane switching thing and Mercedes are at the end of the pits ;)

It is just annoying that little things like this are overshadowing the huge improvements this game has made. Look at the career preview it looks awesome. Still no multiplayer news though.

I agree, the rest of the game looks incredible, the issue with T-Cam s that its how you see the game all the time, its part of the core gameplay, so can be a real issue if its wrong
