  • Re: Motorsport Stuff thread

    I've been promoted to powertrain team lead at Formula Student, guess I'd better get familiar with the 180 page rule book...

    Damn! At Monza in F1 2017 career mode and in qualifying I set fastest first two sectors, only to miss out on pole by 46 thousandths and the top 3 split by 83 thousandths.

    And I did win! Some dodgy strategy by Merc with Hamilton (and then Perez covering it) allowed me to win, but Sainz and Kvyat finished off the podium! I'm now second in the championship as well as both Ferraris retired.

    Have the blue flags been fixed in the latest patch? I wasn't expecting them to work in a mid race save, but Monaco is horrific without them and it needs fixing.

    Well I've just had the most bizarre thing happen at Monaco!

    I don't really like the track and was struggling in qualifying. I made it into Q3 but was stuck in 10th. I would've been happy to get 9th, but I was last car across the line and gained 2.2 seconds on the last lap! I have no idea where that came from! I qualifed 5th, but I get to the race and I'm on pole!

    It turns out all but 5 cars have gearbox penalties, so I'm starting on pole and Perez is 3rd. He got past Perez on the run up the hill on lap 1, so now it's a battle between the 2 of us for the win at Monaco!

    Well that was unexpected! Got a safety car around Spain (ironically because my teammate Perez broke down). There were only about 15 laps left so I pitted for a set of softs as I had a gap to the car behind when the pace was low. I lost a place, but my pace was so good on the restart I ended up on the podium!
