It's fun up until the point you crash out

2) With the top 7 in quali being seperated by less then a tenth, do you think it will continue like this all season, or do we see the gaps open up here? Yep, trampolines will kill some of us

3) what information can you give about yourself or your driving style that could be useful for our commentators?

I like the flow, its important to make no mistakes, staying consistent will be key as always. Adds something special, quite solid to drive there.

2) With the top 7 in quali being seperated by less then a tenth, do you think it will continue like this all season, or do we see the gaps open up here?
I think it depends on the track. Its easier to get a good lap in China compared to Australia. In general the field is very close together.

3) what information can you give about yourself or your driving style that could be useful for our commentators?
Dont try to drive over 95% of your full potential in the race, because a) it doesnt make you that much faster (if faster at all) and b) you lose the feeling of the car which is more important than anything in this game.

Predictions:

Pole: @clarky_110
1) @Clarky
2) @Ollie_D631
3) @Klayyyyyy

no idea really, i have won here in S12 but for some reason it always takes e quite long to get up to speed here bc the lines are quite unusual.

2) With the top 7 in quali being seperated by less then a tenth, do you think it will continue like this all season, or do we see the gaps open up here?

This game has a very small skill gap compared to older F1 games so gaps will only decrease over time

3) what information can you give about yourself or your driving style that could be useful for our commentators?
Usually i was known to have very good tyre wear and to be good on strategy, but since S14 i am really luckless and rather lacklustre if anything lol


Predictions:

Pole: @TheXocolateHD
1) @SynTeTiC96
2) @Ollie_D631
3) @Jemzoh
first to DNF: @burakpala05

I liked it last year but on this years game it sucks to drive, the kerbs are ridiculous. The castle section is actually okay though. I'm just annoyed we get this place instead of Monaco :(
2) With the top 7 in quali being seperated by less then a tenth, do you think it will continue like this all season, or do we see the gaps open up here?
Nah the field is tight, though this track may spread us out with its length and difficulty.
3) what information can you give about yourself or your driving style that could be useful for our commentators?
I'm a better racer than qualifier, often consistent with my results. I can be a bit of an early braker and over cautious but I'm getting more aggressive now with the field being so close and every place being crucial, but don't expect to see me to going for one of those banzai divebombs you tend to see a few times per race :p
Predictions:

Pole: Ollie
1) Syntetic
2) Ollie
3) Alex
first to DNF: Floris

Quali: p3, first time i'm really happy with my lap, despite a slow s1.
Quali: p1. Yeah... a little bit of luck and pace i guess. I didnt really drive on the limit, because i needed the points. Tried to drive consistent and would have been happy with p2 considering Jemzoh and Nardy where really quick. I knew my Setup would work especially at the end of the stints.
But a huge congrats to @DeAgLeKiLLeR, man its really fun to drive against you! We were side be side for the whole first sector haha
And congrats to @Jemzoh as well. You were really quick and i was really sad when i saw you in the wall. In the lap i thought "hopefully he'll make it to the finish in a decent spot". Keep it up, when you're driving like you did 90% of the race, your first win wont be far away! Btw what happened to your tyres at the end of the sints?

Agree, great battle, good pace - Wasnt driving on the limit either, walls are comming close every lap, i was happy with a p3 and i just wanted to cruise it home untill lap 26 where i saw @Jemzoh unfortunately in the wall, he had front wing damage on lap 22, thats why @SynTeTiC96 was closing in so quick the last couple of laps, amazing to finish 1 second behind the leader!

Really enjoyable race

@SynTeTiC96 I had no grip in the end of the Supersoft stint. I was struggling in the castle section and that was the spot where I lost it. And I think u had lower wings as well. On to the next one! I love burning those tyres u know haha!
