Like this track. Got to work on my race pace as letting me down so bad. Looking forward to battles like last race. Alpha did you manage to get your highlights up on YouTube mate?

Might be back there fighting with the Redbull's aswell.
Not a fan of this circuit, first sector is a deathtrap for cutting and extending. Did some racing with Phillip last night which was close at times, but don't think i can improve much before Sunday unless I come up with a miracle of a setup.
Anybody know when the results will be updated? Alpha or Gate?

Hi guys, Got another fever so can't race. Sucks that I keep getting fevers which prevent me from doing things I enjoy doing.

And to let you know how the Australian GP was, it was Brilliant, great entertainment, great food and most importantly great racing. Sound wasn't bad at all from where I was standing (straight between T2 and T3).

Rosberg was on fire, Great drive from Riccardo , shame about DSQ, Magnussen great debut, Bottas Great recovery and my favourite driver Felipe Massa Unlucky Again

Don't think I can race tonight, my wheel stand has started shearing at the bottom hinges so when i am driving it is slightly tilting more and more down wards, so afraid it may break during the race, don't want to cause a crash or something so I will sti this one out. Hoping I can get a new stand by Brazil!

Guys would you mind waiting around 10min for me tonight? Currently juggling between studying Geography and making dinner whilst tidying up so quite busy atm.
If I am not in by then just go on without me, try my best, but my parents said I will have to get it done if I want to race tonight.

3 points more than the Merc's and it doesn't carry over to Brazil Philip, good luck.

You're going to have to win!

Well its not often you see the race leader come into the pits about to start the last lap!

Very weird race that, from start to finish


Amazed with that, I went out in qualy and was disgusting slow which matched how my practice earlier in the week went.
I had decided to make the most of a ****e grid and still be 7th but with brand new tyres, and had made some set up changes to conserve tyres and try a 2 stop, not really thinking it'd come off but at worse maybe allow me to use an extra set of options in a 3 stop.

As above qualy pace was not good at all - but it came together in the race.

Just the one mistake, locking a little trying to pass Owen and pushing us wide which spat me right out into the gravel and with a penalty.
Not sure why the disgusting language for about the 2 laps afterwards, even if I didn't get spat off you were getting the place back.

Little bit of a difference between a little lock up pushing us both wide and the hefty whacks that I've had from my own teammate in 2 straight races now. I don't come screaming on here though. Ranting does absolutely nothing to change what happened, more bizarrely when in comparison it affected you very little.

Being at the back from there looked a huge challenge, 6-7s gap to 6th place , let alone the big advantage the Red Bulls had at the front missing the early carnage, but I was given free overtake on two of the other front runners when Philip and Jimbob came together and just kept my head down and put some consistant laps in.

I wasn't far off saying I'd be fighting the Red Bulls - terrific drive by you Owen (Alpha).

Prayed the rain would hold off, or not dampen the track enough - followed Owen (Mercedes) and his times closely when he stopped and saw it was pretty even between dry and inters, went into the final sector about to start the final lap and began to slide a bit, not much, looking at the RD screen, I was only 2.5s down on my last lap but decided it wasn't worth the potentially heartbreak of throwing away a 30s lead on the last lap when I had the chance of a free stop.

Bit strange pitting with just one lap to go, but safety first definitely paid off on this occasion.


I've pretty much given up trying to understand how this game works sometimes, if I can win at Austin, somethings wrong.
Tyre saving set up probably won't be much use at Brazil, which should be a cracking close race - however you can almost guarantee some sort of lag is going to ruin it with everyone close together.
My pace should be much better around there.

Well what can I say but congrats to Phillip for the Drivers title and Both Williams for taking the Constructors aswell.
What a torrid race I had. Involved in several incidents that left me last most of my first stint. 2 stopper worked fine, up until the rain... Maybe someone saw me rallying the last lap.
Another pole completely wasted again! :)
Can't wait for Brazil now! One of my favorite tracks and will be great to end on a high there. Thats if I can, but not sure...
My PoV will be coming here:

Part 2 and 3 tomorrow, but 3 will be much better than part 2.
