Haven't done a single lap around here on F1 2016, so this should go well for me.

Feels good to have a lot of practice done from the All Star race.

if the race is wet (which is very likely) i will kill myself.


In the dry my pace should be good enough to compete for the top spots, but knowing from the allstar race practice Nervo and Aressi have some incredible pace here, so i hope that i won't lose too many points in the championchip.

Not sure how I will cope without the racing line but my favourite track on the calendar.

Getting 10th in the drivers' championship has to be a realistic aim now considering recent form.

If it rains this week then Nervo will take back the championship lead. @alexukr I've never seen someone so good in the dry and so **** in the wet :rofl:

In all seriousness if @JIM-NervoTank could stop tripping over himself and Alex just continues his consistent run we could have a great showdown at Abu Dhabi

i don't know why, i was never a wet weather god but in canada and in Britian i was on the podium and had descent pace in the wet. I suppose it's something in my setup that is fundamentally not working in the wet, i defo have to iron out that somehow, because the chance for at least one wet race is really high.

Oh dear lol I felt **** while heavy rain during all star race. All I could do was to defend from someone faster than me during 20 laps, not even attack haha. Im not sure if I want rain for this track, but I would prefer a dry race for this one.

And @alexukr I know what's wrong in your setup that makes you go slower in the rain

So judging by the all star race we're looking at low 33's for pole, maybe a high 32?

Don't think I can take another **** race here. Had so much bullshit in races recently, in PSGL and AOR.

Yeah i have a few suspects aswell, as i was clearly better in the rain a few weeks ago. No Idea if i have enough time to test it though because this week is horrible for me in terms of exams.

btw this is post number 1000 so fml. :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

Did a 33.3 with racing line, so mid to low 34s I expect for me... M-H I did in career mode at the start of the game so I'd like to think that's still possible.

Yeah I think that is definitely possible. Tyre wear is much harsher at Malaysia for me on the pad than here, and I still wouldn't say I drive conservatively here. Kind of realised I need to push to the maximum to give myself a chance and then worry about the compromises I've made to be in the situation later

Hoping to do a mid 33 by race day, as I did a 33.9 the other day in a quali session that was far from perfect. Feel like the strategy is the exact same as Malaysia as I was able to take the softs 8 laps in the race. Not sure how long the Hards will go, but I'm assuming a M-H or S-H-S will be the way to go.

Also, for those that don't pay attention to these things:

The Hards are MANDATORY again this week.
