How do you rate your chances? Without Frede, I need to limit the damage done by Catfish and Force India, so I will rate my chances against them.
Who will win the championship? Catfish - Frede seemed to struggle in Korea after a few days off the game
Do you look forward to next season? Yes - My motivation is gaining traction at the most important time
Is this a track you like? yeah! I seem to have good natural pace here and I love the variation
Looking back at your season, what was your greatest memory of the season? Soooo many!

Aus - Last stint charge thru the field
Canada - Last to 2nd thru a great strategy and risky passes
Germany - First Pole
India - First legit win win a monster pass on Catfish as the cherry on the cake

How do you rate your chances? Hopefully figthing for P5. Don't know. Haven't driven this track that much
Who will win the championship? Catfish has been in a good form, though Frede won the last one. Dunno
Do you look forward to next season? I'm looking more forward to season 9 on F1 2014, if there will be one. Have had so much lag issues that to be honest, i'm a bit frustrated with this game. Luckily i like driving alot so i still have the motivation to do season 8.
Is this a track you like? S1 has been difficult for me, hope to find a balanced setup, probably then it will be a track i like :)
Looking back at your season, what was your greatest memory of the season?
- Leading the race in monaco for half of the race, then rain and SC ruined it.
- P2 Nurburgring, without that incident with my tv, would have probably won it.
- Pace in Belgium and Monza. The feeling when the car feels great and you can challenge the front runners, it's amazing, though it's a video game, it's still great!

How do you rate your chances? Quite good, had a bit of practice at Austin and dont seem to have bad pace.
Who will win the championship? Catfish
Do you look forward to next season? More Season 9 than 8. Lag is annoying on F1 2013, hopefully F1 2014 will be better.
Is this a track you like? Not bad, not my favorite, but defo not my worst. Love the first sector.
Looking back at your season, what was your greatest memory of the season? Spa- Finishing in 5th after a hectic final stint.

First sector is great, however it's quite easy to extend by accident in a few places over the lap. I find the tight section at the start of sector three a bit fiddly and annoying though. :(

I find the corners I extend the most by accident are the the corner after sector one where you go over the crest of the hill (otherwise known as turn 9) and the penultimate corner, they can catch you out. Also very easy to cut the S section at the start of the lap :/ probably a good idea to take extra care to stay within the limits there

How do you rate your chances? Not great, I'm in a lull right now so I'm just gonna show up and see what happens.
Who will win the championship? Frede
Do you look forward to next season? Very much so, can't come fast enough so I can put this misery of a season behind me ... although my mind is wavering a bit not knowing what my future is with this league and if I will be eligible to race in it next season.
Is this a track you like? It's different, but not high up on my list.
Looking back at your season, what was your greatest memory of the season? Taking my first career ARL/AOR win Outfoxing the field to win at Nurburgring on a 2-stopper
