Not sure I have much outright pace round here, but it is a circuit I enjoy a lot and it usually provides good racing, so I am looking forward to tomorrow night.

Pace isn't looking as good as expected around here. Need a good result though since the next 3 tracks are probably my worst with Nurburgring.

Might be missing this. My account has been suspended because my payment details aren't apparently up to date. Which they very definitely are, because I did it last month. Will try and sort out but chances are my account won't get reactivated by tonight.

EDIT: Yup, won't be racing. I'm having lots of trouble fighting with the website and haven't got the energy for it. Will look to sort it out tomorrow so I can race on Sunday. Blue, can you take the reins for me please? Ta mate.

One thing to talk about here, Montoya what were you doing on the 1st lap at 130r? On my screen (and I know others were lagging) you were not far enough alongside to the point where I would have to leave room, so you just pushed me wide and took the place.

Not sure if it was Meireloso who was behind but did anyone else see it? I don't want to take it to the stewards if lag was involved.

I had an incident at T1 but not sure about another incident at the 130R. I'll watch on my video tho, just in case

Very happy with 2nd place and only 1 second behind Franglish. That was an enjoyable, competitive race even with a reduced grid. I'll write up a proper race report when I'm less tired.

What that video does show, though, is Jason going into the chicane ahead of Montoya (on Meireloso's screen). So, chances are there was some lag involved.

I've updated the standings for both Korea and Japan but you're all unable to see them at the moment due to the website move, annoyingly. For the meantime I'll give you a quick snapshot below, but the headline is that if Franglish outscores Jason by 14 or more points at India then he wraps up the Championship.

1st - Franglish - 207 points
2nd - Jason - 146 points
3rd - Neil - 108 points
4th - Ellis - 105 points
5th - pelos - 104 points
6th - Kartikheyan - 76 points
7th - Blue - 73 points
8th - Meireloso - 73 points
9th - SyKo Swish - 37 points
10th - Montoya - 31 points
11th - Depleted - 9 points
12th - BarriKimi - 2 points
13th - TSR Unleashed - 2 points

Also, Mr Redhead has officially secured the F1 accession spot. :p
Hopefully I won't go the other way. :oops:
