My vote for next years rule changes will be scrap the reverse grid limitations. No disrespect to the rule makers, but when the top three championship contenders start 1st-3rd it goes against the original principle of the rule doesn't it? It might as well start in the drivers standings order ;)

Well, that was a load of old tosh.

Spent a good few hours on a setup which was regularly in the 1:46's - 1:47's on hard tyres so was optimistic of a decent race...that optimism ended on turn 1 when I got smashed into the wall and got 57 front wing damage and 87 suspension damage. The broken windscreen added to the experience and I missed the speed cones entering the pits so got a 10 second penalty just to add salt into the raw wound.

Laptimes were OK after the repairs and a lap down, but with zero motivation mistakes were aplenty so had 3 or 4 spins.

Decided to pit for fuel on about lap 15, then thought I might as well pit for fresh tyres as I was stuck behind cars and didn't feel the urge to unlap myself from 2 laps to 1 lap down. The pit crew had different ideas and just polished my car up and sent me on my way. Adamant I was getting some new rubber to push for the fastest lap I called in and asked what the fcuk was going on, Geoff (from F1 games) was in my pit crew today and said 'Sorry planet, we had the wrong tyres out'. So I went in again. I was checking the times on the app and pushed hard on my outlap, and thought...these are slippy, they shouldn't be cold.....oh FFS Geoff, WHERE ARE MY TYRES?? On the radio again to Geoff...'Geoff, what is going on in the pitlane son? Do you have any tyres?' Geoff replied 'Your car computer menu said you wanted tyres, but we thought you just wanted another polish so buffed up your bonet'. I replied 'Geoff, I want some new FCKING TYRES, I'm coming in....AGAIN!'.

I went for my 4th or 5th pitstop and the pitcrew were out ready with tyres. YES!, but Geoff comes on the blower and says 'Retire the car, we've got to beat the crowds before the race finishes' at which point I bombed off down the pit lane. Geoff called Charlie Whiting and got me disqualified.

Geoff has been fired.


If you don't play F1 games you won't have a clue who Geoff is so apologies to you :)


Sorry Denis but this is for the stewards, maybe your on-board shows something different. From the mirror it kind of looked like your car got stuck in mine as the crash was well weird.

What could have been... Lol

Didn't have the best start and dropped to 6th, before I got sent in to the wall on the next lap. Went into the pits straight away and the damege didn't take too much time to repair. After putting some decent but not mega quick laps in I made my up from 8th all the way to 2nd place, with no pit stop to make (I thought). Started worrying about fuel though, because I either selected the wrong strategy or the pit crew didn't refuel. About 20 laps before the end I ran onto the grass in the final sector which caused me to crash so that was farwell to P2 already. Again no refueling in the pits and I ran out of fuel in the last corner in the end, running P4.

It’s all good mate - when there’s “funny” incidents, it needs to be looked at.
