Practiced a little bit today...
My social was over after only 8 laps because of a lovely kerb. And it's so nice to see that nearly any corner has these lovely kerbs.
Surely pace is always important but in abu dhabi you need luck and the kindness of the Formula 1 gods to finish the race in a good position.
Will be an interesting race cause really anything could happen

Always enjoyed Abu Dhabi on any version of the game and this year is no different. Don't think that necessarily translates into good pace though, will have to wait and see. At least I know not to 2-stop this season :).

I absolutely hate this track. The only good thing around here is the Sunset.

I've only just got back from my hols, so I won't have much time to do any practice, which is a shame considering Abu Dhabi is a circuit that requires some practice.

Race pace looking pretty solid at the moment, but it's so difficult to get the laps right in quali...

Also don't know how well the likes of Jason and Ellis are doing

I haven't done much practise because i'm busy atm. But i'll do some qualis and maybe a race tomorrow to hopefully get some point tomorrow. But I have no clue how good my pace is so let's hope the best and that these lovely kerbs won't **** me

Quietly confident for this one. Goal for the race is to outscore ellis so 2nd place in the standings is a bit safer, also would be great to gain a lot of points on Ferrari so the constructors' battle is closer.

I have absolutely no pace around here, judging from my one attempt at a social race. I'd be happy if I could get into the 39s in qualy.

Annoyed with that. Just made loads of stupid mistakes and just couldn't replicate the lap times I was doing earlier in the week.

Quali: crap lap with an 1:38:3 lost so much time in sector 3

Race: I have no clue what happened in my first stint. It was like driving on ice. Lost three or four positions
In stint 2 and 3 I fought my way back into P4 and got fucked by a kerb. Pitstop 3 took 9 seconds(thank you Red Bull crew) so I lost a position to Blue Inquisitor. Got that place back on the DRS straight and got fucked by a kerb again and lost two positions. In lap 27 I overtook meireloso and finished in 5th.
Pretty frustrating race .Could've been 4th place but not more.
Congrats to the top three.
See you in Austin ;)

I changed my setup about an hour before the race and suddenly I was much quicker, the car felt completely different. Glad I made those changes because my race pace was actually quite good, I recovered from 10th to 4th.
