[F3] Round 05 : German GP : Hockenheim (28-May)
« on: May 23, 2017, 11:28:16 am »
Formula 3 : Season 17 : Round 05
German Grand Prix, Hockenheimring, Hockenheim


Race Preview

Last week, we had a hectic, 20-man race at Monaco. This time round we're moving to a more open track, the Hockenheimring. It was built by Mercedes-Benz as a test track in the 1930s, Hockenheim first welcomed F1 to the circuit in 1970 when drivers threatened to boycott the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring on safety grounds.

In Monaco, we saw pzalanHUN extend his lead at the top of the Drivers' standings with a commanding victory, finishing over 40 seconds ahead of the next best, even after getting a puncture. Behind him, Narayan was best of the rest, finishing on the podium in his first ever F3 race. His teammate, Malc rounded off the podium. In the driver's standings things are looking close, 11 points separate 2nd in the drivers (AMS97F1) and 14th in the drivers (Yarhamm). This means any driver from 14th and up could move into 2nd after this race. The constructors race is also looking pretty close, less than 30 points separate 8 of the 10 teams, with Williams taking the early lead, 10 points ahead of McLaren.

5. Maybe it wont, depends on him
6. Hard to say that he will win, but he will be at the top.

1. Will you be racing?

Yes, of course.

2. Who will finish on the podium here in Germany?

Hun, Unomi and RDO

3. Who will get pole position?

Hun

4. What are you expecting from the F1 race at Monaco this weekend?

Aside from minimal overtaking, I'm thinking a Ferrari will win!

5. How long do you think pzalan will continue his run of finishing on the podium every race he's attended?

A while I imagine, he's F1/F2 standard! I think it'll continue until he either gets some really bad luck or he moves to F1/F2.

6. How do you think Alonso will do in indy 500?

I don't really know anything about Indy, but I think he'll be right up there.

Q: 6th - Best lap was blocked but still, 6th was good.

R: 6th - In summary, the race was good fun and fairly eventful for part of it. A couple of negative incidents but aside from that I spent a fair bit of time fighting others on track! And the result itself was fairly decent, but as I said, if the incidents hadn't happened then maybe 5th was possible.

Longer Review

The start was average but Yarhamm got a bad start and I gained 5th without even trying as he fell back lots of places. I was fairly cautious into T1 but I managed a move onto Ashbest out of the hairpin, only to lose it again two turns later. Ashbest was lagging all over the place at times and so I struggled to make a decisive move on him, but by lap 3 I was clear of him as I had the inside of T1. This allowed the top 3 to get out of reach though and later on in lap 4 at the hairpin I was pushed off the track, relegating me two places, crucially below my team mate right as the safety car came out - I had to wait in the pits as a result of the incident. It was particularly frustrating because I had been catching Curt ahead a little as this all went on.

After the SC I was in 11th, whilst my team mate and Bacho were in 7th and 6th. I pulled a good move on the restart on Malc, I got a great run out of T1 and he had a poor one. I was quite far back and it surprised me how quickly I just drove round him. Coming into T2 I accidently outbraked myself a bit and dive bombed Ashbest by accident and arguably the move was a little dodgy but thankfully nobody came out of it with damage, and I gained another place, into 9th. At the next hairpin I lost position to Yarhamm but also gained as a car ahead went off!

I followed Bacho round for a while, I again was a little hot into the second hairpin but this time less so, I was a fair way up his inside but I assume he didn't see me and there was contact which lost me 2 or 3 seconds at most. Unfair to pin the blame on him for a mistake there, I just accepted it and continued to try and chase him down. I battled fraggle for a couple of laps (14/15) and then he passed me at the hairpin on lap 15.

I pitted on lap 21, fought with Yarhamm for lap 22 and 23 until the hairpin and simply drove to finish from there, a fairly uneventful but clean end to the race.

First 5 races have been a success IMO, I'm only 5 points off of RDO in second. Literally any of the top 7 at this point could Win/come second based on points so far (Depending on Hun), the line up this season has been a big success for close racing, interestingly we've had 10 podium sitters in 5 races, compared to 6 last season. And McLaren are topping the Constructors too, so that is good!
