I think Australia is a place where a little mistake or a different line can cost you a lot of time, so it more about delivering your best and being good unde rpressure and not so much about pure pace, usually i qualified well here so hopefully that trend continues

2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?


I am usually not a fan of these kind of circuits, but australia has a nice flow to it and its a lot mor enjoyable with the 2017 cars then on F1 2016, but in general i like the european tracks more

Top 5 in the championship, was hoping to win at Monaco but apparently that wont be happening :banghead: Around here qualifying is king so good pace there will be crucial.
2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?
I prefer it to most tracks TBH, it's weirdly fun to drive and pretty punishing if you make mistakes.

Pole: Ollie
1) Syntetic

No expectations at all. A good start for me is to score points in the first few races. No more no less.



2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?

My pace there is rapid but i think i'll struggle to do a good quali lap as always.

Hopefully I can get some Points in Australia. That would be a great start for me.

2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?

I don't like Australia so much. It's very easy to make a mistake, but I think if I get my flow, my consistent and lap times would be competitive.

What would be a good result for you and what are your aims for this season?

As I said in the Drivers Introduction Thread I want to evolve myself. Hopefully I can fight for podiums this season. :)

The target is to defend my title successfully. In Australia, a podium is a great start for me. Last season i had no points here so to get a podium would be great :lol:

2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?
Ive never really liked the circuit, never been that strong around here so i look forward to the more traditional tracks.

Get first points of the season and be constantly in the points

2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?

It's a circuit that I like a lot, with a lot of downforce and a very technical circuit, suitable for my driving characteristics

Expectation is to be in the midfield mostly and to hopefully make the most out of my good tracks/conditions. Good/bad start of the season is really just about surviving turn 1 and avoiding any major mistakes. As long as I can avoid incidents this race I'll be happy.

2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?

It's ****. Looking forward to the proper race tracks, think my pace is much better at those.

My expectations are to finish in points in all the races and give a show

2) How do you like the challenge if this circuit compared to more traditional tracks?

The circuit is funny and mistakes costs a lot of time. I like these characteristics between traditional and urban.
