@Chris Leather - Standings updated soon ;), I think they'll be looking very juicy.

Hoping for another strong round here, I think every know where they are in the pecking order now and therefore know who they're fighting in the championship. Not gonna mention my goals aloud but I know who I want to beat this season and I think we're actually level on points. Been one of my more enjoyable seasons in AOR due to how close the field is. Hopefully it can continue right up until the final race.

That whole part of the points table is incredibly close. You could gain many more positions in the next four races with results like the last two, everything's there to play for.
Interesting stat: after that Germany race is the first time this season some people are mathematically eliminated from championship contention. 100 points remaining, and with @McLaren Fan 96 sitting on 108, means only the top 14 in the standings (14th has 10 points) still have a mathematical shot at winning this season.

I'm not sure what to make of Spa. My evaluation race there wasn't great. I think it was my future teammate @BoblereN who I almost crashed with late in the first lap and the rest of the race was fairly uncompetitive.

This is actually the first season I've been in where the Constructors Championship is actually something that people want to fight for, myself and @CodeZed08 are certainly trying to push for it and take 3rd off Sauber, while Williams ( @McLaren Fan 96 & @Maddog40 ) and McLaren ( @maxen & @BoblereN ) are certainly pushing for the championship.

On a side note, I think me letting people by is bad luck as in both races the driver could've won and finished second :rolleyes: ( @maxen & @Maddog40 )

Haha yeah, it's great to see people fight over the constructors.

The curse of being let through by @ItsProulx... :ROFLMAO:

I guess you all gotta thank me (except the williams ofc) for the team championship being still open since, in fact, it was me teaming up @maxen and @BoblereN :D

The fact you see finishing second as cursed when it's the first points I've scored in 3 races... someone's a bit used to the podium steps :p

I only meant in the sense you were leading for half that race, up until lap 32.

In my 1st season of AOR I have to agree with @ItsProulx and say that I was surprised myself with how close the field has been so far this season. I should be higher up the table but that is down to me and me alone. Even though I have made a number of (really) stupid mistakes and had some disagreements with people I have really enjoyed my 1st season and hoping this level of competitiveness continues for the rest of the season! :p

Haven't put down a single lap on Spa since the evaluation race :) Not gonna go there again before I've done at least one practice session to know that I'm at least comfortable in the in car.
Haha, I genuinely wasn't sure if "done at least one practice" meant you were excited to race in Wednesday evening's practice to make sure you got a race practice before Sunday, or if you were telling me you weren't joining the practice in order to do your own. I guess your non-appearance answered that one. :p

This is gonna be an interesting race for me, feel as though i'm fast here although consistency here isn't my strong point, done plenty of practice although not sure if I will be able to do more before sunday as i'm going to be redecorating my bedroom over the weekend which involves moving everything out of it and painting etc

If we could have some more rain on Sunday, that'd be great. Between Austria quali, Britain race and Germany, the wet sessions have been kind to me.
