Right off the bat, I have to say that I wont be able to attend the first race unfortunately.
Im on a little weekend trip to Berlin (also because of twitch con) and when the race starts I will be in the middle of the highway back home so it doesnt fit my schedule.
Sorry:confused:

But Im sure I will be able to attend the other races and as my record shows I had a 100% attendance ratio :)

Hey everyone!
Like some of you know, I'm on a trip to Hungary. So normally I will be back on Sunday around 4.00pm UK time. So things will be very tight for me to be able to make it. It depends on the traffic going back of course. But normally I can say that I will be able to attend the race with 75% certainty.
Like @Kereka I had a 100% attendance rate last season, and I would like to maintain that for this season as well.

If things change and I won't make it in time, I will try to notify here. If I don't post anything here, you can assume I will be present.

Good luck everyone already!

Edit: I'm already back since a couple of hours, so no problems.

Something I forgot to add and which is quite important; do not press "READY" yet when on the strategy screen, just before the formation lap start. Some people might still need some extra time for fuel changes, setup changes, strategy edits, possible disconnects, ...

Just wait until you see the timer go down, and only then you may press ready. You'll be sure then that you won't be the one that causes an annoyance.
I'll make personally sure that everyone gets enough time, and then I'll press start when we've waited long enough.
Then I'm the one to blame, and I'll take the responsibility you know;).

But good luck for the race guys!

Congratulations to Red Bull guys, @Schwalbe for the win and @SwaggyEggy for the podium.
I had a hell of a race. I could die any moment, because my rears wore much quicker than I anticipated. I even had a puncture on lap 8 and I had to save tyres till the end.:oops:
I never really liked this track anyway. Not suited for pads. Next time i will beat you Schwalbe :devilish:

Now that I think of it, I should've build my setup around Balance 7.
I need to work on it better.

Had an alright race. Everything went according to plan for the first few laps, but then i started to get performance issues on my PC and lost a position due to a framedrop. after that i was driving behind @Realnmk for a little while when suddenly he brake-tested me on an apex (Im sure it was not your intention, but i have decided to forward it to the stewards). That incident made me lose a bit of my wing, and i started losing about 1 second per lap to every car. ended up bringing the car home in P7. Not too happy, but it happens.

Does anyone have any footage of the crash that went on at the start of the race, with the Toro Rosso in the back? I lost my front wing because of that and would like to review the footage please.

Had a good first run on the softs, but was not able to finish my SS run because of the desynced car of @spawnieSTAR. Hoped the car would ghost but it didn't unfortunately. Had to be careful with some small laggspikes early in the first stint of the race but was able to get a nice P2 after all the trouble. Happy with the race I drove keeping it inside the white lines too. Congrats to 2nd of driver of Red Bull (@Schwalbe), 2nd drivers also need the taste of a win from time to time. ;) Great job by @Skiadr to get third place with the pad around here.

It's started!
