Questions to drivers:

1) COTA is a track that bascially mixes a lot of elements from the most popular tracks and therefore became a fan and a driver favourite. Do you like the track, or do you think that this is another uninspired "Tilkedrome" ?

2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?

3) Predictions please

to @Aressi191 : How did it feel, when you crosed the line in Japan to be AOR champion and take us a bit through your jouney to glory this season.

to @Ali Kidd : for the Most of the season you looked as the strongest competitor to Aressi, but mistakes and bad luck in the 2nd half of the season have put you on the back foot in the title race. What do you think you need to claim the title next season?

to @Jthorn97 @alexukr and @jamie-995 : you are all very close in the fight for 3rd position, would that mean anything to you to be in the Top 3 of, or are you indifferent?

to @Gamer_DA_best262 After your strong Performances in F2 you finally had a breakout performance in Japan as you wer eonly 5 seconds off the lead do you think you can build on that for the last two races and maybe fight for the podium?

It's a mixed bag, i dont really like the complete lack of grass and gravel and that takes the flair a bit away, but its a much better track the mexico or russia

2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?

Considering how F1 2017 shapes up to be i will not really miss the game itself, but more the meories of racing here two seasons with this game :)

I would be indifferent, but i really wanna drive fthe ferrari next season and with a high championship position the probability would increase and also i wanna kinda keep the record to have finished every AOR season in the top 3, but i know that especially @Jthorn97 wil be very hard to beat, but the gap is not that big and i will do a bit more practice for the last two races then i did for the previous rounds

I do enjoy the track especially the esses in sector one. It can be difficult though especially without the racing line i thought so should be an interesting race

2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?

This game is certainly the best I've ever played and is the first game I have actually league raced on. Hopefully on the next game I am not random blown up out the pit lane like in Bahrain F2.

After i wer eonly 5 second off the lead in Japan it can be a positive. Neither Italy or Japan I got any practice in for so I'll take the results. My aim is a top 5 finish at this race and I will unfortunately be missing the finale as I'm on holiday @alexukr

Hate the track with a passion. Its only redeeming quality is the esses.

2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?
I'll miss the sweatiness of this game in general. Will try to forget the aids traction and all of S12 as quickly as possible.

1) good track, I like it and usually do well here.
2) I'll miss the pre-1.2 patch version. Since then the handling was largely unenjoyable.

Only thing I like is Sector one. The rest is quite boring.

2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?

Will be missing the slipstream glitch and the curbs. Wonna forget this season bc there's good chance I'll be last in the standings at the end.

I like the track specially S1.

How did it feel, when you crosed the line in Japan to be AOR champion and take us a bit through your jouney to glory this season.

Great feeling also maybe little relieved 'cause of drama at end of race as had no idea what's going to happen with tyres. I think consistency been key this season though there was also three mistakes which cost a lot of points but still a lot more consistent than earlier.

It's meh. IRL I think it is pretty good.
Sector 1 on a pad is kind of aids but no where near as bad as Japan.


2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?
Will miss my little Manor.
I'd like to forget the slipstream glitch and ofc the tyre wear glitch. Both horrible.

Its certainly a fun track to drive when you get into a good rythm, just a shame i'm not quick here.

2) With this being the penultimate race of the season the good-bye from F1 2016 is near, what will you miss about this game and what do you want to forget as fast as possible?

I will miss the handling model of this game & i will not miss this seasons race at Silverstone.

Well, I officially cannot do T1 or the penultimate corner to save my life and can’t get out of the 36s so this is going to go well

Would be my favourite track but I've done no practice at all. Is also my final AOR race on F1 2016, and my penultimate league race on this game overall. Been a weird one, I'm sure S14 will be a bit less bizarre from my standpoint, hoping to actually manage to be in F1 for the first season of a cycle for once, but we'll see. Cheers all, see you next season (y)
