Hate this track, probably because I’m really bad at it. Wish F1 would just get rid of it so I never have to drive round here again. If I finish in the points I’ll be happy.

Going to be a small grid for this race... podium for Jason? :unsure:

Aaaand I agree with Limaro. Simply not a fan of this track. Turn 1 is unique and great, but other than that it's stale

I've just been trying to catch your tt time! Its faster than all my friends in f8 and f7 so I can't say you're really bad at this track. Wish I was as bad as you! Lol.

TT I’m alright, I can restart the Lap a million times, trying to keep the car pointing the right way in a race is where everything goes wrong!

Bit quiet in here? How's practise going for everyone? It's goiing to be a difficult race. Strategy isn't clear. One or two stops? I will prob go for one yellow/white although I can only get 36's and 37's with the white tyre. Disadvantage is quali on the yellow seems one second slower than the ultra, so I would be starting way down the grid. I hope we all get through the 1st corner unscathed?

One stop starting on the Softs is probably best bet as the Ultras last all of 5 secs here. Doubt you can make up the pit stop time difference when doing the 2 stop either.

Probably the 1-stopper. The overall pit stop time is sooooo long here due to pit entry. As Limaro said, it would be difficult to make up the time difference. Just end up destroying your tires.

Turn 1 will be fun! :)

Times on the softs just aren't looking as good as I'd like, but the ultras are a stretch. May still be possible. I mostly can't get an ideal setup that works on each compound, but this track isn't a favorite. T1 at the start should be a trick.
