Quite happy with my race tonight, smoothe from start to finish more-o-less, with only a couple of offs/half spins. I consider Valencia one of my strong circuits as well, so looking forward to it. Well done tonight guys, shame about those who didn't finish. Better luck next race

EDIT: Also, with Myth offcially dropping out. I would like to take over his Ferrari on a permenant basis. Just so Daneius and Brad(for future graphics) know. Unless sombody else wants to take the Ferrari and swap it for their car. As you all know i dislike Ferrari a lot, but i'll drive anything over that bugged Force India, lol.

Very bad race for me, I am still dumbfounded as to how I finished 2nd nearly 20 seconds ahead of 3rd!

I had a orange wing from around lap 9 to 17, then as soon as I left the pits I came around the first corner and it went down to yellow. From there, around lap 27 or 28, I hit the wall on the tight hairpin and it went down to orange. After that I knew catching Pined was impossible so just played it safe. I almost wrecked on around lap 40 however, the second corner I hugged the wall so closely that I really did think it was my race over and somehow I didnt even get damage!

I got very sloppy towards the end, going off on the first corner, that tricky chicane under the bridge, and also the last chicane a few times too.

As for Tully123's crash, I had just overtook derek I think it was and then it popped up Tully had crashed out, and I started taking the corner and I just see a green lotus there crashed out, pretty cool to be honest.

Also, when did you pit Pined? I thought you started on Primes but must have been wrong, unless you pitted earlier than I thought, as you were around 25 seconds ahead then you went down to 11 seconds, but a 14 second pit is impossible I would think on this track...

As for Daenius & Noddee, what happened?

Yeah Brad, i pitted on lap 20 having started on Options. They were still only orange when i went in, i think they could have gone another 3 laps maybe but i figured fresh primes would be quicker than old options. Thing is, it was around 2 laps after my pit stop that you were suddenly 11 seconds behind. I was a little confused myself as i thought it was 15 seconds behind that the times stopped showing not 12?? Though, given that it had been quite smoothe out of the pits that to loose 4 seconds wasn't possible. Still unsure how you were suddenly right there on the mini map. My stop itself was pretty slow, at just under 7 seconds for only tyres, but seeing it accelerate properly was beautiful. Now in a Ferrari* (see above offer other drivers, lol) i shouldn't have to bare that again now

Looked like a pretty intense race judging by the standings at the end. Really need to put some practice into Valencia now. Shame I could not take part, but free grub at home and seeing Murray v Nadal was too good to resist .

Think I may be missing the Brazillian GP of ours that is due to take place on the 26th Feb 2011, lol. Friend is emmigrating and that is the farewell party, so possible DNF for me then haha.

Ah ok, I was really confused and just could'nt figure out where I had lost the time. I will put you into the Ferrari (as long as everyone else is OK with it) in the next graphic update next week. As for Valencia, I really am not looking forward to it. I hate Valencia with a passion, probably my least favourite track alongside Catalunya & Singapore. (In-Game anyway).

I will probably miss the 15th January race as it's my brothers birthday party, and then probably the one on 5th Feb as I am on a weekend trip. Apart from those, I can not see me missing any of the other races at the moment.

well tht wasnt a good race for me. heres wot happened. started in 6th got a half decent start went past dan after wot look like a bad second chicane from him but over cooked the third and ended up losing a few places after runnning off the track. which pissed me off a bit but carried on with no damage. took me a lap and a bit to get past derek who i think was 7th with lfc in 6th, was chasing down lfc when wee both got it rong in the chicane b4 the hairpin i lost ma wing. so off to the pits i went which put me in last by about 6 seconds behind tully so two laps l8r i cum in to the last chicane b4 the hairpin to find tully parked rong way round on the raceing line i hit him head on lose ma front wing and well lost the plot and turned ma xbox off. that was lap 8 so in the space on 5 laps it all went rong which pissed me off and just wasnt in the mood.

Very sorry lads for that

Shit race for me. I cut way too many corners in the beginning without slowing down afterwards, just couldn't get any feeling for the turns.

After some catching up to blue smarty in 2nd, I again cut many corners to not hit him in the back of his car. When I tried to overtake him before turn 5 he swerved out and ultimately caused my car to hit the wall, causing my front wing to go orange. Don't worry about it, Dom, just a lack of communication between us alltogether on that one.

After I got 2 penalties for corner cutting (20 secs) I was pissed off and quit out.

Very unfortunate turn of events, on the other hand I now know that going out until 7am the day before a race is a definite no-go

Unlucky Daenius & Noddee, Montreal can be a pain for penalties as nearly every corner is quite easy to cut if you dont get it right.

@Pined - Sounds good, I will be up for some races, maybe a few sprints then a practice for Valencia? I really dislike racing on this track, but once we have done Silverstone (Hate the new layout) , we have 4 better tracks to look forward to in Germany, Hungary, Belgium & Italy.

Personally i think that regardless of how bad a race is going, people should always finish. You never know how things will turn out. Brad or I could have wrecked and you would have been able to pick up as much as 10 points instead of 1 & 2. The usual back markers Patriot, derek and tully were all lapped twice or more i think. So there is always time to make up some positions.

Agreed, the great thing about this game is unpredictability. If I had quit in Spain when I was in last place for a few laps, I would never had predicted I would have won the race due to Pined having bad luck.

I qualified third on the grid for the third time running and managed to get ahead of brad into the first corner, after a couple laps daenius was behind me and catching up, I went wide at the end of sector 1 and squeezed daenius into te wall and ended up damageing dans car. (very sorry about that) After the stops brad was quite close to me and I could sense another good fight coming but I had a sloppy exit outof the first corner in sector 2 and I effectively let brad through, then it was a pretty smooth race in third with john around 40 seconds behind me. Overall I was happy to finish where I started but did anyone feel the race was a bit empty with only eight drivers for most of the race?
by the way you can call me dom, (my last name isnt really smartie)

Yeah, its just always easy to say lets have a clean race. Sometimes just doesnt work out like that. Hope its incident free too Hope to win Valencia and maybe podium at Silverstone. Sector 1 there is where im usually quickest and its where most people struggle. Bit like Sector 1 of Japan.

EDIT: Still need to update the graphics on the front page Daneius.. just saying, lol :P

Yeah, I knew you started on Primes and tried building a big lead (Which I did) but then I started being too cautious and spun off a few times. Hitman managed to catch up and then when I pit, you went ahead (naturally). You came into pit and then when you came out, I managed to keep you behind for a good 5 laps or so, but when you got past I stood no chance on wearing prime tyres. I spun out a few laps later and lost my front wing and punctured front right tyre, so had to pit.

The penalty was for that cutting off the corner (As you said, I got it totally wrong!). Hitman just sneaked infront of me due to that.

If you beat me at Japan I will be extremely annoyed. Japan is by far my best track I believe, that Sector 1 is my favourite in all of F1, its just beautifully flowing and right on the edge of spinning out if taken right.

I have the day off tomorrow due to Staff Assessment (typical when we could be off anyway due to snow) and I am not going out until about 4 so could spend the morning putting something together for us?

What do you think?
