Not been able to test at all yet as I'm on holiday but it's looking great with a full grid (most we have ever had) and this new mod! What's everyone's thoughts on the new season?

Gonna the best of all seasons we had the mod is fantastic the new rules are great.
We got an high pace field wich means the competition is verry good we got a close field.
the tyres are realy like the real pirellis whit some good consistensy but after a long period you get a cliff.
What do i have to say more.
Its in one word : Fanatastic Very Happy
Cant Wait for melbourn Smile.

i agree with others everone involved in the mod did a fantastic job and the full grid is the thing i like most cause i really wanna fight for every place(wich i did before aswell)
but if you do mistakes it can cost much more now.

Really great job guys looking forward to Melbourne!!!

Right guys i thought it would be a great idea to use the general paddock to get some talk going amongst us all. We have a great season here which is the most real i think we have had, plenty of stuff to discuss and i feel it will help get more of a buzz going around the paddock (as it where lol)

Talking points from China -

- how on earth are people 3 stopping lol im pretty sure if people can get that to really work we will get some real mixed results.
- The engine failure curse lol cunnie can elaborate LOL
- One of the biggest grids 22 drivers!!
- which drivers surprised you during the race.

these are just a few things to get us started, weve got an awesome league here so lets start talking about it lol

feel sorry for the guys with engine trouble in race i no how it feels when i had so many brake faliures last season

ye Dan youre right its great season so far and the grid is one of the biggest i ever saw here.

Now for the 1st point i think me and rib (danny) were the only 2 drivers doing 3 stop. The Answer to that is we are just kind to the tyres i guess dont have any other answer to that. also gotta say it was very close for not working.

For the engine failures i dont know why this happens as everything is fine so far for me and my engine done his 3rd race now.

3rd as i said this huge grid is awesome so many drivers here and i think everyone here can score points with a bit of luck. Great to see so many competitve racers.

Who surprised me so far this season from the new boys.


Well in Melbourne i have to say stelios in the hrt was not bad.

In Sepang it was clearly Matthew in the Force India who showed good pace aswell as in shanghai.

For Shanghai specificly it was Nikolas in the opening laps in wich he was running in 4th place and had the chance to score points but its obvious he made some huge mistakes for wich he got the penalty already.

Ive watched replys of some guys that had engine trouble.

some of them were changing down quite fast,

sometimes you can change down fast and itll blow straight away, and other times u can change fast, and it helps the engine ware dwn faster during te race, which was main caue for most i think,

sometimes it has nothing to do with rad size or boost,

i suggest trying to come up with a gear pattern to help the engine, sounds silly but really does help,

as far as the grid was wicked have so many ppl, and for them all to quali, even though some of the new guys still dont get the rules, but can be worked on.

tyres, i did watch alonso he is better on his tyres, but it dont help tbh, cos he needs to drop pace to look after them, and ner the end of race was very slow, and had no chance to fight dan at end,

its allways better to do that 1 more stop, as we saw with dan with alonso, and real life, we seen button try 3 in china and lewis 4,, lewis ended up mies ahead/winning and they were fighting at 1 point,

Ive always got a lap or 2 extra out of my tyres but I think Dave is right, squeezing extra out of them = general slower lap times. I had a fairly clear race with not many "wheel to wheel battles" yesterday so that helped tyres too.

In Season 6 I was planning a 0 stopper on hards at Monza. Race ended before T1 so cant tell you if it was gonna work out. Shocked

just noticed something while testing in relation to the engines blowing. I was testing the limit lol and when u triple shift down pretty fast it blows everytime, but doing a double shift non stop and it doesnt, it just overheats then cools down when u go back to normal. so maybe you triple shifted which caused it?
