Ah Suzuka. This track will produce some nice battling. A track where tyre wear will be a killer if it stays dry. The season 9 GP2 race back on F1 2014 was a good one. Lost the win to @Desimpele by less than a second if I remember correctly with @Elite_sultan a similar distance behind me in 3rd

Really do enjoy racing around most of this track, the only parts I don't like is the 2 Degner's followed by the hairpin and the exit out of the last corner, but even so I'd still just put Suzuka above Malaysia in terms of my favourite tracks in this game.

But I really like driving Sector 1 with it's S's they can be hard but feel very rewarding when you get it right and 130R is an absolute blast to take at full speed:joyful:, just because of this I consider it similar to Spa as a drivers circuit.

I've only just done a couple of laps to dust off the cobwebs around here and I think I'm already nearly up to speed, and it seems I'm could be in better shape then I was at Malaysia in dry one lap pace terms, so hopefully this bodes well for Sunday.:angelic:

After some set up tweaks, I'm feeling very confident about my one lap pace. As for race pace...I'll have to work on that.

I noticed that, wondered what it was. Have you sorted out your setup now Don?
Yeah. The back end doesn't want to step out anymore. I was getting so much oversteer under braking.

Something a little weird from practice earlier.
Those tyres clearly don't belong there, obviously when they went to there career advisor for the first time and told them that they wanted to have a career in breakdancing, they were promptly put all together in tarp and shipped off to Suzuka so they couldn't show off there real skills to the world, this was there way of reliving the good old days.(y)

I was gobsmacked when i saw @DON SILVA time on the leaderboard! @Elite_sultan is incredibly quick as well and judging by the chaos in last night's social any one of 5 or 6 drivers is well in with a shout of the win tomorrow...

I do have an AOR pole position at Suzuka on my CV from season 8 but I can't bet against @dFlashAshb or @neil rutter. They usually produce the laps when it matters
