Hi everyone in A1,

After 10 races, we've come to the middle of the season, with 11 races to go. This is why I made this small interview page where you can answer a few questions about your pre-season expectations and how your season went accordingly, now that we have 2 break weeks after each other. Of course it's not mandatory to fill this in but it would be a good read! Just copy over the questions and answer them however you want!

What was your pre-season expectation?


Are you happy with your results so far this season? If not, why?


What would you like to achieve in the 2nd part of the season to be happy at the end of the season?


Who, as a racer, has exceeded your expectations so far?


Who do you see as your biggest rival this season, and why?


What was your favorite race so far?


Which track/race are you looking forward to?


Who do you think will get the drivers and constructors championships? And why?


How's your teammate treating you so far?

What was your pre-season expectation?
My expectation was to be somewhere in the midfield, with a few chances for maybe a podium here or there.

Are you happy with your results so far this season? If not, why?

I'm quite happy so far yet somewhat disappointed. I obviously got my first ever AOR victory at Australia, but I had some disappointing results after that.

What would you like to achieve in the 2nd part of the season to be happy at the end of the season?

Trying to have less bad results as there has been too many.

Who, as a racer, has exceeded your expectations so far?

I think it has to be NicMania really. A podium in every single race he started is impressive.

Who do you see as your biggest rival this season, and why?

In F1, your biggest rival is your teammate.

What was your favorite race so far?

My favorite race so far was Australia definitely. My 2nd favorite track and to win my first leaguerace at that track was the best feeling I've had in my league racing career!

Which track/race are you looking forward to?

I'm looking forward to Germany and Italy the most.

Who do you think will get the drivers and constructors championships? And why?

Drivers: Raikkonen34Kimi, He is just too fast this season. Unbeatable by nearly everyone.
Constructors: Racing Point, 2 great drivers and very consistent.

How's your teammate treating you so far?

Samuel is a great teammate. He might be a little bit faster than me, but I enjoy the partnership we have and look forward to continue this in the coming races and seasons!

What was your pre-season expectation?

I set myself the goal of battling in the mid pack and finishing in the points as and when I could.

Are you happy with your results so far this season? If not, why?

I’m more than happy with my results so far. Some races haven’t gone my way but that’s just racing.


What would you like to achieve in the 2nd part of the season to be happy at the end of the season?

I would like to finish top 8 in the Drivers championship.


Who, as a racer, has exceeded your expectations so far?

Sam I knew he was quick but I didn’t expect him to be able to miss 4 races and still be top 5 of the Championship.


Who do you see as your biggest rival this season, and why?

For me it has to be @Adrilocdoc. Mainly because I feel like I have a point to prove. Also he’s a very quick driver in the race and really can push me to push harder.

What was your favorite race so far?

China for me I took a hit in turn 1 putting me to the back of the pack and managed to have me some nice pace to finish myself in the points. Also had some really nice battling with the Renault.


Which track/race are you looking forward to?

Spa I really feel like it’s a driver track I will not be the quickest but I really enjoy the track.


Who do you think will get the drivers and constructors championships? And why?

Drivers Championship will be @raikkonen34kimi purely because he’s an Alien.

Constructors will be Racing Point because both drivers are almost always battling in the top 5 and consistently get good points finishes.


How's your teammate treating you so far?

My teammate has been good. Haven’t heard a lot from him but when I have it’s been good. Sharing information that can really benefit our races.

What was your pre-season expectation?
To win the title.

Are you happy with your results so far this season? If not, why?
Most of them. The first half of the season is my weaker half, tracks like Australia and Monaco have always been terrible for me. So to be in a position where I can still battle for the title at this stage is a positive for me.

What would you like to achieve in the 2nd part of the season to be happy at the end of the season?
Third title and subsequently retiring from AOR to spend the rest of my days on a yacht by the beach.

Who, as a racer, has exceeded your expectations so far?
Most people have said @sevillaste_11 but I always knew he was very fast. @Timwentink has been quicker than I expected. Raikkonen should be in the mains.

Who do you see as your biggest rival this season, and why?
@GFO_NicMania7_GR , I'm running out of things to steward him for

What was your favorite race so far?
Austria, had a great race with Nic and Tim.

Which track/race are you looking forward to?
Brazil, I have nice pace around there and it lends itself to having a close together grid. COTA can also throw up nice races. Not looking forward to Hungary/Abu Dhabi/Russia.

Who do you think will get the drivers and constructors championships? And why?
Probably Raikkonen, even though he shouldn't be in this league. Racing Point should win constructors.

How's your teammate treating you so far?
Brilliantly.

What was your pre-season expectation?
To try and match last season performance and be around top5

Are you happy with your results so far this season? If not, why?
No, pace wise in the race i think im inside the top6 but or I bottle qualy or get myself in the middle of accidents or stupid battles

What would you like to achieve in the 2nd part of the season to be happy at the end of the season?
Just have clean races where I can fight for top5, finishing 6th in the championship seems possible but improvement is needed

Who, as a racer, has exceeded your expectations so far?
Nic has impressed me, also Raikkonen is mad quick. But Gameaholic is the one who has surprised me the most inthink.

Who do you see as your biggest rival this season, and why?
Myself, need to stop being in the wrong place at the wrong time

What was your favorite race so far?
Monaco, i managed 4th and got dotd

Which track/race are you looking forward to?
Spa, Spa, Spa and Spa. Got my first win there last season and i always seem to find that extra in that track. Also I love driving it

Who do you think will get the drivers and constructors championships? And why?
Larkin because he is the best racer and a nice guy

How's your teammate treating you so far?
Great as usual, we arent setting the house on fire but is always fun with him. Also we had our best qualy of the season in Silverstone although other drivers ruined our races

What was your pre-season expectation?
I did not expect much, it is true that at the beginning of the season I felt very comfortable and with enough rhythm to even be able to win, but the rhythm of others has also risen, hence I assumed that I would be over the middle zone again

Are you happy with your results so far this season? If not, why?

Yes and no, I have been quite irregular. In Australia, China, Baku and Austria it has been where I have had the best pace, hence I have achieved those good positions. Not all races have gone well, although in France I finished 4th, it was because I had some luck. Other circuits like Spain or Uk did not have that luck and Bahrain was already the disaster

What would you like to achieve in the 2nd part of the season to be happy at the end of the season?

A victory, but with the failures that I have in pad, lack of time and even not so good setups, it will be quite complicated to get the victory, and with the high level of the high zone

Who, as a racer, has exceeded your expectations so far?

Drivers like @Samuel_Soares @GameAholicFTW @Larkin @Harinioarg if they don't have problems, are almost always up, they are drivers who already knew they were good. I have been quite surprised by @Timwentink @raikkonen34kimi and @GFO_NicMania7_GR

Who do you see as your biggest rival this season, and why?

Seeing the drivers championship @Samuel_Soares @Timwentink and @GameAholicFTW, top 3 is impossible.

What was your favorite race so far?

Impossible to choose one, Australia, China and Austria

Which track/race are you looking forward to?

Monza and Mexico, are going to be two races that will be very close surely

Who do you think will get the drivers and constructors championships? And why?

Complicated to predict, both are very even.

How's your teammate treating you so far?
Very well, I am lucky to have a very fast teammate who collects many points for the team!
