I did say wait till Bahrain for everyone to be back and boy was I right! Makes a change that I could keep up with and catch Nukka unlike last season :p Fantastic racing from everyone again, not like the Social on Saturday night "COUGH COUGH"

Edit - Mustn't forget @acerees either, the battling between me, him and Nukka was pretty fantastic while it lasted too!

Also had a scary moment coming out onto the back DRS straight where I thought my wheel had screwed up again, the wheel helped with the correction though.. decided to turn full right lock even before I had, everybody hide they're starting to learn!

Good race everyone!

I had som nice battles with @Scott_Aitchison and @Jens Maul :)
Overall I'm happy with my own performance, except when I got a little excited and dived on @Jens Maul :S

Some misscommunication between me and the pitstaff saw me doing a 3-stop instead of the planned 2-stop.. (I forgott to change the tyre-type :p) That cost me around 20 sec, but you live and you learn!

Looking forward to the next race already! And congratz to @Nukka for winning the race (y)

Good to be back! ;)
Great race, solid quali and a good start which im happy with. Some good battles with @PaulB1991 but overall not that much action. Our pace was quite similar, so couldnt afford any mistakes. Have a feeling that this will be a fun season! :)

Well... what a race. Qualified 2nd, got hit from the back in turn 1, got taken out a second time in lap 1 and lost my front wing, somehow recovered to P4 by doing a two stop (two 14 laps primes stints).

The incident in turn 1 with @YouCantTouchThis is already cleared, but you should better stop rage quitting every race.

But @Punisher, I want to know why you took me out in lap 1 and didnt wait or at least didnt say anything.

I dont want to put this to the stewards, but if you cant prove it was lag, I will.

Still had some great battles, especially with @BiffKakan, who made my race because I have always enjoyed reading his name "Mumblesmurfen" :p.

My highlights will be up the next few days.

That happened in the social too, plus the thing in the pitlane with cars being behind or in front of someone and then suddenly disappearing.. it was really odd! That's why I'll be hosting on Saturday (and maybe Sunday) just in case :)
Noticed the thing in the pit aswell. We should try another host...

I'm pretty sure it's a 'lag' type thing, I haven't seen it at the start though... when I made one of stops @Jay was right behind me coming out of the pits and then fell way back... Which is odd as both of us have very solid internet... #F12015stillisn'tfixed

Seeing other drivers jumping in pitlane is just a glitch that happens (30 league races in F1 2015 experience). They are not changing where they are, but for some reason you see them in wrong place (they are where they should be on their screen) and the game updates their place when you exit the pits. Starts are lag related issue, where there is really nothing you can do to fix it and it is also completely random who gets launched first and who last. From my experience host naturally always gets the advantage since he has no lag.

If that's the case then it'd be better off if @Neil Bywater stayed host then. Don't want any more of a advantage than I've already got :hilarious:

That would make sense, but unless you are in pole it's no advantage. See my video and the start, nearly rammed the Williams because of its 1 second delayed start
