of a race for me. From start to finish.
We didnt vercrashin thou
I did say to myself at one point, “at least he’s at the front and I’m at the back so we can’t crash”. But that was disregarding you still having to pass me 3 times (or how ever many times it was...) hahaha.
After being happy with my quali, i stuffed something up in my setup and started the race with only 0.82 of a lap of extra fuel...after 2 laps running rich along the DRS straights it was clear that i wasnt going to make it, but after alot of fuel saving and a much slower pace i got it around for a clean finish. Thanks again guys and well done Kart.
Maaaate, buddy, pal. You think if you have time you could hook me up with a redbull sigbature?
You're a legend by the way
Wow. Points for that abortion of a race? I’ll take em.
Some quick facts from last night which may excite you or not care about:
@Kartdude45 Became the first driver to win on debut (not counting the very first race in S1)
His win was the first for Sauber since @Motors560’s win at Baku in S1, which ironically was also won from last place on the grid.
Force India are now the first team champions to carry over a constructors lead from the previous season into the next.
Absolute shocker of a night from me...
Spun in qualifying so I had to complete my lap on slicks in the wet which was interesting.
Started 3rd from the back and was battling Knuckles for the lead by lap 2.
That was until a massive moment of understeer then turned into snap oversteer and I had spun off the track, now 15 seconds back...
Another 2 spins added to my misery.
The car felt fast in the final stint and that was the only time in the entire night that the car felt solid enough that I could push.
Disappointed with my performance, especially the off-track adventures, really cost me some valuable points.
Until next week lads.
P.S - did anyone else find the lobby to be quite jumpy? Also was there any difference in hosts or was mine/Hat’s better?
@Hatfield will poles and FL’s count for scoring in your massively rigg- I mean teams championship?
Yes I guess so

DRIVERS BRIEFING R2 - Australian Grand Prix - 29 Laps
Previous Winner: Keeden
Please read the following carefully and 'like' it when you have read and understood it.
TRACK LIMITS: As per our rules and regs drivers must keep 2 wheels on the ripple strips or white lines at all times. We all make a mistake or 2, but if you are caught "continually and obviously" running outside the track limits to gain advantage you will be penalized by the stewards group.
CONTACT: CONTACT IS TO BE AVOIDED AT ALL TIMES. If you make contact with the car in front and gain an advantage, you MUST REDRESS and give the place back. Failure to do so could result in a penalty from the stewards group.
SWERVING: You are NOT permitted to swerve from side to side on the straights. Drivers may only change direction ONCE on corner entry.
PRE-RACE: You must wait until a call to ready in the PS4 chat. This will be approximately 45 seconds after the F1 intro sequence, more than enough time to setup a race strategy. DO NOT hit X until the ready call is sent.
FORMATION LAP: This season will see the introduction of the formation lap to set the clutch bitepoint and to warm up tyres. Please avoid overtaking other cars and leave space.
TURN 1 LAP 1: You can't win the race at turn 1, but you can certainly lose it. Take care into the first corner and leave plentiful space for other drivers, as this is the most risky part of the race.
PIT LINES: Use the pit lane lines as indicated. Do not charge into the pit lane as you risk damaging your car and disrupting the race. Commit early to avoid potentially causing a serious accident. Stay within the lines, you may not cut the exit line AT ALL, otherwise you will receive a warning.
PIT STOPS: This season will introduce realistic pit stops. You must slow down to the indicated speed limit otherwise you will earn a stop and go penalty. You must also pull away from the pits using the clutch, and deactivate the pit limiter on the pit exit line
BLUE FLAGS: Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. You should be aware of the leaders coming up on you, and move out of the way as soon as possible. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those in your class. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty.
STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS: You are to PM myself, @Viperzed & @Hatfield should you want to raise a protest. The main Stewards group thread will have all the necessary info in it, regarding rules and regs, and the protest procedure. Please read it and understand how it works.
GROUP CHAT: The chat will be used to convey vital information between sessions. Please do not spam the chat during a qualifying or race session unless it is to warn drivers regarding lag.
QUITTING: This is a huge problem in this game, remember in this series, a safety car will bring you back into the fight. As usual, if you need to leave, make sure you retire the car before leaving the lobby. It is also asked that you do not chuck a hissy fit and take out the brake markers. Rage quitting has become far too frequent and is heavily affecting the race results. In all ROOZ races you must aim to finish the race and/or not cause problems for those still racing. Please do not exit the race unless you absolutely need to.
RECORD YOUR RACE!: Please remember to record your footage via pre recording it or saving it after the race. If you want to protest anything, we can only act on the info we have in front of us, failure to do so will not enable us to view things from your game perspeective, and with some of the issues we have seen, this could have a massive influence on how the stewards group will view and rule on an incident.
