What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
Britain or Bahrain. Very close in quali by all and generally some very good, close racing! (definitely nothing to do with me scoring points at those races...:ROFLMAO:)

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?
Monaco, had no pace and didn't feel great.

Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?
those pink bois are too quick!! :ROFLMAO: generally the pace between people is super close! there is becoming more of a trend especially in the past 3 races pink boi 1-2.... but the midfield is super close it reminds me of the real life 2018 season! you don't know who will be getting points!

Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
"be a regular points scorer"

I'll let you guys be the judge there... :unsure::unsure:

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?
"be a regular points scorer"
to be featured in @CRL Rosberg's race highlights! :love::love:

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
about as good as the engine in Riccardo's Redbull this season...

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?
Awful! Doesn't send every enquiry to the stewards on time! Complete faff!

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
Unsure for now.

What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
Australia or China for the late race chaos.

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?
Bahrain for getting spun and driving around to get P11. Or Baku.

Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?
Competition is high as expected, theres some rough edges on some racing situation but all in all a
lright.
Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
Expected to sneak a couple podiums. Well reached with a win and a couple podiums so far. The expectations really just evolved after the first races.

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?
To not get spun. And also to get another McTics 1-2 and a win for myself. The fight for the titles is sorta there too. Goal is to be on the podium every race ofc.:unsure:

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
8. Most things out of my hands, mostly on the pace but Canada and Baku were just dogshite. Had too many recovery drives from bad positions that I've ended up in.

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?
Faff/Faff. Quick standings updates and all the other jazz.

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
Could maybe add some graphic about the DOTD vote for the streams, maybe about the amount of votes and to whom they have been.

I do also agree on the prior Pink Bois statement and would also like to be featured in the said @CRL Rosberg highlights.

What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
China (McTics 1-2 @Meloni88 ;))

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?
Austria. Damage on lap 1 and could never get back into the race, turned into a test session :sleep:

Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?
It's at the level I expected, feel like this is the right place for me. Racecraft could be a bit better but seems better than tier 1 from what I see.

Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
Nowhere near, been on the end of some horrible luck bar Bahrain and China. The second half can only be better (y)

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?
A race win considering I've missed out by under a second on 2 occasions already :cry:. Gonna be so difficult to beat the Force Indias but we'll see. If not then hopefully some podiums and consistent points scoring to make up for my dismal 1st half.

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
3

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?
GOAT @Hayden_430 - always has time for enquiries etc. and everything gets done on time and as it's supposed to so props for that (y)

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
Need a committed 2nd commentator, bit unfair on @Jess being on her own most weeks. And one other suggestion is for everyone (especially @Nathan Moore and @Aidan Holland) to let me win one at some point :LOL:

To actually have some luck and maybe scrape a podium.

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?

Before I do start and answer, have to bare in mind I only started racing in F2 from Spain (y)

What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
China in F3 because I won convincingly :giggle:

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?

Since returning to F2 no race has gone to plan, if I had to pick then Monaco.


Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?

As expected it’s as high as it’s always been and on the whole the level of racing is pretty good but again there is room for improvement.

Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
Plain and simple...no :cry:

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?

To actually score some points firstly and then potentially to get some podiums.

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
In F3 a 9, for F2...can I do a minus score? :LOL:

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?

Besides forgetting to take an incident to the stewards (FAFF) ;) then I can’t complain at all!

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
Yes reduce the power of the Force India’s maybe so they can let someone else win :p I’m kidding, I would say it’s all good but maybe we need a consistent second commentator if it’s possible.

Everyone keep up the good work and the good level of racing :)

What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
France. Expected to be miles off and ended up having a pretty good race.

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?
Spain because lap 1 damage ruined any chance of a decent result.

Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?
Enjoying how close it is pace-wise, the Force Indias usually find a bit extra in the race but they're not unbeatable, good to see multiple contenders for wins/podiums/points each week. Overall racing is probably as good as you could hope for.

Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
Wanted some consistency and to be back among the points so I'd say so.

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?
Qualify better, maybe challenge for the odd podium, finish in the top half of both championships.

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
5. Not really made any on-track errors but haven't been fast enough anywhere.

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?
Quick to deal with steward enquiries, updating standings and any other issues. The race threads always have useful information/reminders etc too.

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
Echoing what a couple of others said about a committed 2nd commentator for the broadcasts.

What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
Would probably have to be Bahrain. It was the first race I've done outside the top tier of AOR so I was a little worried about the standards of driving. Had a great qualifying and an amazing start and just built a good gap to the rest of the field. Although I disconnected and had to rejoin from being first to then being third, it was really fun trying to re catch the top two and then having that three-way fight on the last lap where (through penalties) I managed to win. Was just a lot of fun.

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?
Monaco or France. Both races were just awful (as a pad user). Monaco I was a bit unlucky and France, I just had no pace. Definitely my lowest points this season.

Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?
From what I've been apart of it's been good. I'd say I've apart of some of the best battles this season like with Moorso in Spain and the four-way fight in Austria. Other battles have been good, haven't personally had many bad experiences.

Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
Nope. Easy answer. I hoped to have had a stronger season and by this point to have had at least 3 wins but instead I've got one. I've been quite disappointed by myself this season although I know in most of the races, they've been ruined through no fault of my own. Hopefully I can turn it around :D

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?
More podiums and wins.

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
I think from my own expectations, 5/10.

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?
1/10. Kidding, Hayden's been great. There was the mess up at Canada but everyone makes a mistake sometimes. But overall he's been great.

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
We need a committed second streamer. Jess has been amazing so far and done a great job when she's had to do it on her own, but for the overall experience and to make it better for her, we need someone reliable for the streams. James did a great job for Austria but I don't think he is reliable enough unfortunately.

What has been your favourite/best race of the season?
I thoroughly enjoyed the close and clean racing at Spain, qualified in 7th. Start of the race wasn't great, partly due to cold tyres after being hit and DSQ:ed from the formation lap :cautious:. But felt my over all pace wasnt too bad compared to my fellow competitors and the racing was good fun! :D

What has been your least favourite/worst race of the season?
Erm, gotta pick Baku for this one. Little did I know, that I would be taken to the stewards for causing the "safety car incident", which entailed incorrect blame and some harsch comments :rolleyes:. Pouring salt in to an open wound was when I somehow got severly penalised for something I didn't do. Oh well, at least I realised the importance of having POV-footage always at hand! (y)

Any thoughts on the level of racing and competition in this league?
Very strong field in F2 and the best form of professional, well structured and respectful racing I have ever been involved in. As this is my first season in AOR and second season in any sort of F1 league racing, I feel previliged to be able to race with this level of drivers!

Have your pre-season expectations been fulfilled so far?
Nope, Not really! :LOL: "Consistent points finnishes and well established as an F2 driver for the upcoming season"

What are your hopes/expectations for the rest of the season?
My above quest continues!
Now that the pink ladys have moved on up to where they belong, it doesnt seem equally impossible^^

On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your first half of the season?
2, which equals the amount of points i've scored/kept so far. Its sad I know, but at least I've been featured in one of @CRL Rosberg highlight vids :giggle: its not for everyone :p

How would you rate your coordinator? Have they been helpful/informative etc.?
@Hayden_430 Really done a good job! Not much else to add.

Any other thoughts, opinions or suggestions (can relate to the streams too)?
Can only agree that a two commentator line-up would be even better :)
