I'm in the same boat as you Pete. I did like 3 TT laps here on F1 2015 and haven't touched this track since. I'm not even sure I know how to drive it

I usually judge my race pace against legend AI, if I can beat them I have the pace for good points, usually, when I'm in the top 5 it equals a few points my way.
Had 1 quick race so far and got lapped. So not looking great for me! Can't even get into the top 3,000 on TT after over 50laps :banghead:

Well looks like I'll be going for a 6 stopper if I have enough tyres. All I'd ok till 20% worn then like driving on ice.

I believe you can add @dFlashAshb to the list of informed absentees, read the last paragraph of his last race report at the US gp.

As for this track I enjoy it a bit more then the US but not by much, for me this circuit out of the 21 tracks probably ranks in the bottom third in terms of how much I like/enjoy it.

You can't be struggling that much as when I checked the TT leaderboard (a day ago) you were the fastest of the F3 guys, you've probably got a great chance of getting your best result of the season here.

That's a bold strategy hope it pays off for you.(y)

I sadly don't think I'm going to make it for this one, I have a late work shift so probably won't make it home in time

I can't remember the last time I was less prepared for a league race. Haven't done a single lap of online quali, no race mileage and I don't even know the strategy. I haven't even cemented a set up. Just gonna wing it because in the TT laps I did, I could see that this circuit just isn't one that I'll ever enjoy.

Looking at the missing drivers, if I can find some pace from somewhere, there is an outside chance of a podium challenge but I very much doubt that it'll happen

Shouldn't that just be 'rival' Ash.;)

Big race tonight as Neil can win the championship if he wins the race, and because Ash and Chris are missing this, it means only I'm the only one that can stop him winning it tonight.

My main target is to get a podium, with my secondary to finish ahead of Neil just to try and delay the inevitable to next week, the only way Neil can't win the championship tonight if he finishes ahead of me is for him to finish 9th and me 10th, or him 10th and me not scoring points and both those scenarios are extremely unlikely to happen I would think.

But honestly not sure what to expect for the race I think potentially its pretty open, personally I'm now happy enough racing around here but there's no guarantees that it'll translate into a good result.

Lastly:
