If you are unable to attend the race, PLEASE advise your League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread.

The media guys haven't been able to get to Yas Marina for this race, this will mean that the drivers have been allowed to miss the press conference, therefore NO questions!

UPDATE: A JOURNALIST ACTUALLY CAME TO ABU YAS MARINA AND GAVE SOME QUESTIONS:

Pole? :
Winner? :
Who will round out the top 5 finishing 5th? :
Who will take the last point in 10th? :

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race?
A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement?
Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season?
Will we see a safety car this race?


But feel free to add you thoughts and expectations forward to the race

Get some rest, I look forward to hear from you.

Side note: This COULD be the first race for a very long time with 16 starting cars, as C2GY has internet and Boldy87 has joined the league!!

Pole? : Manuel
Winner? : KoS
Who will round out the top 5 finishing 5th? : Me
Who will take the last point in 10th? : Boldy87

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race?
- Pretty decent. My qualifying is fine, but I am very shaky here. My qual time can be anything between 37.2 and 38.8

A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement?
- I like all the sectors. The bug kerbs destroy the track though.

Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season?
- Manuel should be the guy I would like to follow, but I think a few other guys will be fighting me (be aware if you try to block me!)

Will we see a safety car this race?
- Spuddy is = 1 ( :D ), then we have this new guy, and I know he maybe can cause another one, so that is = 2. Then we will have a SC after I've taken Manuel out = 3. Aaaand then a kerb bug will make it 4. So yes, 4 SCs should be the thing to aim for today.

Pole? : C2GY
Winner? : Manuel
Who will round out the top 5 finishing 5th? : Raikkonen
Who will take the last point in 10th? : Boldy

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race? Unless there is a mass disconnect or everyone in front of me loses a wing, then no chance whatsoever
A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement? Totally. This track has so many off camber turns and awkward turns that it is very easy to put a wheel wrong and get sent in to a barrier.
Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season? Been seeing a lot of Specialist, Finestrat, and Gazza....who are coincidentally the same people I'm close to in the championship.
Will we see a safety car this race? I would say more than likely. I seriously think that this race is going to be loaded with drama, as we tend to run in packs and leaving each other room has a more than likely chance of getting stuck on a curb and spinning out.

I said this on another forum, but the winner of this race will not be the fastest, but the person who is smooth and consistent.

Who will take the last point in 10th? : Specialist

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race? Win maybe not, But had first go last night and was actually surprised with how good my setup was with some practice i hoping can get some decent points for change..

A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement? i like it all.

Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season? Depends who's around me at time

Will we see a safety car this race? I'm gonna say a.. yes.

Pole? : Frede - He sandbagged the practice race
Winner? : Frede
Who will round out the top 5 finishing 5th? : Me
Who will take the last point in 10th? : Boldy

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race? Not as high as Inida but my race pace is far stronger. Kerbs screw me on low fuel
A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement? No, as I like the track, and Andrew ain't a wise man :p
Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season? Raikonnen, C2 and the top 4 occasionally
Will we see a safety car this race? Yes - Caused by a kerb

Pole? : KoS
Winner? : Catfish
Who will round out the top 5 finishing 5th? : Woodyz
Who will take the last point in 10th? : Gazza

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race? About the same as navigating the Amazon river in a margarine tub!
A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement? In terms of the lack of fast flowing corners yes. But this is a good circuit with unique challenges for teams and drivers.
Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season? Spuddy maybe if he improves his race consistency. And anyone who busts a tyre at turn 1, lap 1.
Will we see a safety car this race? I bet no.

PPLEASEEE can someone mention me in a post in this league. Feel a bit like a ghost. Or more like Webber at RB.

Who will round out the top 5 finishing 5th? : Ollie
Who will take the last point in 10th? : Prehn

How do you rate your ability to challenge for the win this race? You're having a joke, right?!
A wise man once quoted once that "the first sector is fun, but the rest of the track is ****". Do you agree with this statement? Sorta, its not a bad track. Its that the kerbs are poo.
Who do you see yourself scrapping with on track for the rest of the season? Prehn, he seems to have very similar pace to me looking at the results from Korea, Japan and India
Will we see a safety car this race? Yes, the kerbs will surely kill 1 out of the 16 people starting

Totally Agree

Frede ^^

Will we see a safety car this race?
I do not hope so but I think Spuddy will cause his 4th SC Phase in the 5th or 6th race^^

Thanks a lot Tom, excellent bit of driving right there, totally.
You'd best believe that THAT will be going to the stewards.

God sake should of left my setup alone! Changed brakes before race and made it crap for stopping -_- no stopping force on full fuel, race to forget perhaps, Kerbs wasn't very helpful either kept catching them awkward and was sliding out
But was a Nice win though Fred.

I am now off to bed so can get up early and catch some real f1 action :D Buzzzing

Chow guys and see you in USA
