Austria and Monza because of my past experiences there and an almighty P2 at Monza last season being just behind @Curly (kys parabollica)

Best - Good battles in Australia and coming from a bottled quali from P14 into P10

Pole floris

1) Finally the european stretch of the season starts, which of the european tracks is your favourite and why?
I'm not sure, i like a lot of them. Most of them have a nice flow.
2) What was your best and the worst memory of the season so far?
Best propably the win in China. It felt really great. Worse maybe my qualilap in Bahrain.
Predictions:

Pole @JIM-NardyXTeam
1) @Ollie_D631
2) @Jemzoh
3) @alexukr
Fastest lap: /

to @SynTeTiC96 you had a dream start to the season and the title race looks already set, how do you deal with the pressure being now the title favourite and what are the factors to your consistency this season?
The title is far away from being set. There were just 4 races out of 15 and they went quite lucky but things can change very quickly. There's not more pressure then usually. Maybe less cause i know that i dont have to catch up. I think a lot about setups. Finding one that you're happy with makes a big difference in this game.

Silverstone, fast and flowing and home GP.
2) What was your best and the worst memory of the season so far?
Best - Win in Australia
Worst - Game Glitch in China
Predictions:
Pole Nardy
1) Nardy
2) @SynTeTiC96
3) @Floriswijers33
Fastest lap: @Curly


to @Ollie_D631 after a storming start to the season the last few races proved difficult, do you think you can do it like last season and defend your title in a late season charge?
It will be difficult to fight for the title. I should be closer in the standings to the front then i am, due to no fault of my own at China and Baku. I know i can comeback, because i managed last season from 68 points behind, but i cant practice for the next 5 races due to exams so winning it is a long shot, especially with @SynTeTiC96 driving as well as he is.

1) Finally the european stretch of the season starts, which of the european tracks is your favourite and why?
My favourite track is Montmelo (Spain GP) so far. It totally adapts to my driving style

2) What was your best and the worst memory of the season so far?
My best memory is my pole position in the Baku GP and my worst memory is my qualifying session of bahrain so so far.

Predictions:
Pole I think @TheXocolateHD
1) @Ollie_D631
2) @IRT_AlvaroMasia
3) @SynTeTiC96
Fastest lap: Me

to @JIM_pasti @JIM-NardyXTeam @TheXocolateHD and @IRT_AlvaroMasia with your home race ahead, do you think that you can make it a spanish domination on home soil?

Well, if I could finish a decent qualifying lap and I could have a strong pace, everything could happen. I wish it.

Just realised, saying who's gonna get the fastest lap just equates to who's going to get blown up in the race lel

Austria because of this one:

2) What was your best and the worst memory of the season so far?


The Best one was maybe the pace i had overall, i think i can fight for the podium in most races again and that makes me happy, however i have not been mistake free this season so thats bad. Also China was really gutting because i think i could have won this race.

Predictions:
Pole: @TheXocolateHD
1) @JIM-NardyXTeam
2) @Floriswijers33
3) @TheXocolateHD
Fastest lap: @Overdykink

@iSuperScrub @Jarno Opmeer even though there are no abscences yet, please make yourself as ready as possible for the race, because in the last two races we had unannounced abscences and lots of last minute onces, so be prepared to possibly race

Silverstone, cause of my F2 win last season. Although I don't mind Spain either.

2) What was your best and the worst memory of the season so far?

Best probably my battle with @dawidos_1150 at Bahrain. Shame it only was for P10.
Worst probably the full rest of the qualifyings and races. Just really haven't been performing to my potential at all, especially in qualifying.


Predictions:
Pole @Floriswijers33
1) @Jemzoh
2) @DeAgLeKiLLeR
3) @SynTeTiC96
Fastest lap: @Floriswijers33

Yea, blaming other drivers but when you make a mistake yourself you dont talk about it, thanks for taking me out mate, what you did was 100X worse then those 3 divebombs today

if you talk about other people mistakes but not mistakes you make yourself that makes me really angry

That is the difference, what i did was a mistake, an error in how much i had to lift to make the corner side by side with you on dirty tyres and i apologized to you in person and i will get penalised for that, but what i did wasnt intentionally, it was an accident cause by a mistake from me. What i am talking about are the intentional divebombs and forcing offs i have experienced and seen many times on the stream. No driver is ever mistake free, if you do a mistake then apologize and move on, but i see from the first race onwards that in many cases there is intentional running off the road and divebombing and this causes general agressiveness in the field. Many times this season when battled someone they didnt leave the space and just ran me off the road and that is intent, thats not happening by mistake and i obviously put out my elbows aswell because if not then the exact thing as today happens where becausei wanted to leave space i get swamped by 3 drivers

I am racing here for 5 seasons and this incident will be my first ever penalty in the stewards office ( should have been with pasti in Baku aswell tho) and in most seasons the driving was hard but respectful in leaving enough space or not using other drivers as brake assitance and this season its definetly different (not excluding myself from this critizism).
