My internet seems to not like working in the evening. Hopefully I can race but if my internet decides to be like CRL Rosberg's I won't be able to. Shame as I've put in some practice for once.

Ok so I can conclude that my internet will blow up. I disconnected twice from Formula Xbox last night and once from The F1 League on Wednesday. I will do a speed test this evening to see if I am able to race

So guys remember to stay within the white lines on pit entry if you fail to do so you will be penalised for it as per the rules.

And another thing T1 and T2 are quite tight corners so don't go kamakaze mode and crash into everyone remember the race isn't won on lap 1.

I might also be late and have to join through qually but @AOR BiGGzY96 will manage to create a lobby.

Remember that Oasis (full-time), Sf Schumri, Speed Demon, @Jaxxy OG and rapiz are people to invite in that order.:)

Yes thats a good point actually guys, ONLY THE COORDINATOR IS ALLOWED TO PRESS "A" AT THE END OF EACH SESSION so dont press A especially at the start of the race, this gives time for people to go to the toilet if needed, no one press A even if the lobby host is taking ages to start, just wait, myself or genius will start the lobby when everyone is ready.

I do not really know what is going to happen now but my grand dad is kind of going to hospital so might be later than I expected but I will hopefully join.

@AOR BiGGzY96 believe in you.

So as mentioned in both the main thread and this thread my internet is very bad rn and I do not feel it will be safe to race with. Therefore I will sit out tonight's race (again annoyingly) hopefully I can race next week but I do not feel I am deserving of a full time seat for the 700th time. So could you please give it to a reserve who can race more regularly than me

Made the wrong call to pit for wets :(((. Cost me a few points but i'm rather happy with that overall. Picked the right starting tyre which massively helped but did well to stay out of trouble in the first stint and hang on to some of the faster guys. Pace on the inters wasn't too bad relative to everyone else. Needed maybe one more lap to get back ahead of one or two of the inters runners. But best result of the season, i'll take that!

Ill take 5th, despite my controller going right on the straight which made me understeer into the next corner and lose the place to coldhead which is really annoying but ill take 2 points less after having a really laggy race where every time i was near someone my game blew up so just tried to stay in no mans land and grind out the result. GG

That was such a tough first league race on F1 2016. I bottled qualifying, I was hoping I would start outside the top 10 ;) safety car at the start helped! Then, because my engineer was a complete noob, he never talked about the conditions when I requested a command. So I went on sorts (bad call) and then the rain came down :/ went on inters till the end, they were absolutely gone by the last lap. The wet runners were catching so quickly! Anyway, 6th place I'll take that. Need to check the race engineer settings to see if I can fix the issue. Otherwise, I believe I could have had a better result today

Was looking good before my wheel went fucked up. Had a great battle with @Stratis Ferrari for most of the race. Around 7 laps from the end i lost the feedback for 1 second and then it came back my wheel went into a strange lock mode. I had to steer left to go straight.. so i pitted for wets and a reset but then all feedback was lost. Did 3 more resets but nothing helped. Did a complete reset and my wheel was functioning again. But i lost almost a lap of time.. was Charing Jordan when i spun into the wall. Retired. Thanks thrustmaster fucking *****.

Probably my unluckiest race so far... I've gone from 10th to 1st in the first few laps and then I decided to take a bit of a risk by staying out on the Supersofts until the rain comes down. Because the weather decided to make the soft-runners' race OP. But my tires couldn't last for 1 more sector... Good battles with @Rapidz F1 nonetheless
