Tables updated. I'd probably just ignore the constructor's standings. Think the sheer amount of driver changes we've had this season is taking it's toll on the google docs. I think the McLaren guys have it anyway so not too much of a drama. Though I did notice we've had 7 different winners in the last 7 races. :thumbsup:


So guys, with 3 races left who's going to win the championship? (Yes this is an attempt to liven the forum up a bit :tongue:)

Yes, the drivers are very close in performance, there are qualifyings with 9 drivers separate by a second, with 7 diferente winners in the last 7 races, and i hope to be the eighth winner in 8 diferente races :thumbsup:.

Tried to go on tonight and looks like my pedals have gone again. Was constantly stuck at about 10% throttle even when I wasn't even touching them. Will see what they're like tomorrow and if they still buggered I won't race. I'll still be about to Co-ordinate tomorrow regardless of if they work or not.

Racing on a pad is out of the question for me though as I know I'd be a danger to everyone else on track. Completely lost the hand co-ordination after using a wheel for a few years. Hopefully it's ok tomorrow but I highly doubt it. Looks like the wheel has decided whether or not a race next season though.

Ok guys I think my throttle pedal has completely gone I have zero response from it so I'll be unable to race tonight. (and quite likely for the rest of the season.) I'll be around tonight to co-ordinate still and then we'll see what happens for USA and Brazil.

Also just a reminder if you haven't already done so to check out the Season 8 sign-up thread if you wish to continue racing in the leagues next season.

Qualified 2 seconds off the pace, but for some reason I was matching the front 3s race pace, was looking good for a 3rd place on a 2 stopper, but got too eager on the throttle on worn tyres! Lost my front wing and got a puncture, very frustrated with myself!

Looking forward to Texas next week, love that track!

Qualifying:5th
Race:3rd

I have a good lap in the qualifying with 0.2 sec from pole, i have a good start until reda make a mistake and when i put in the inside, afraid to hit reda in the outside, i went more inside and i hit a stupid spire that spin me, until the first pit stop, my race was horrible then i started to have race pace, have some acidentes like reda hitting or banana dsc, then i anticipated my second stop that make me closer to coaches, so we make a great battle but it wasn't enough to pass him, then after the third pit stop, i lose my drs and for some reason i get closer to coaches in the straight, then i have to use the kers to pass him without drs, then i manage to make the 3rd place in front of coaches.

Awesome race guys !! I love racing with you guys and being a part of this great league !!
Started 8th and finished race in 6th due to MVUnited wrecking out and a couple disconnections
Started race cleanly and made some decent pit stops, ran slower than usual to preserve tires and fuel to see if I could gain spots on that strategy but
was only able to gain 1 spot doing it so all in all a great race for me. I finished 6th and got 8pts which is a season best for me
Can't wait until next year after these last 2 great tracks !

Congratulations to the podium finishers and everyone for driving a clean/fast race

Had my worst quali of the season at my worst track, only managed 6th after messing up my first 2 runs...... I was too cautious into t1 and clipped the bollard on the inside sending me back to last place. Battled back to 3rd place only to lose kers for 2 laps allowing gusxandi to pass me during last stint to finish 4th. Had a few good battles on way through the field but happy to put a poor race and quali behind me, hope for better at USA. Disappointed to lose my championship lead, only 1 point between me and my team mate with 2 races remaining!! Very tight!

A bad race for me... In quali I had a DRS failure but I did a perfect lap without DRS to be in P4. In race I broke my front wing in lap 4 and I tried to recover my place. But in the penultimate lap, my option tyres were completely dead and I lost 56 secondes in a lap !! P6, disappointing result...
