« on: January 07, 2018, 01:19:13 pm »
Formula Performance Round 1 - The Australian Grand Prix



It's time to get your racing boots on as a new season of FP gets under way down under. The Australian Grand Prix was thoroughly missed as the season opener last season but the paddock is already buzzing with the anticipation to see if AMS has what it takes to defend a well deserved first PSGL title. He will have though competition from Frome and Friso who pushed him all through out last season as well as the rapid pace of Ashbest and Cliffy who will make their debut in this formula come Tuesday. Who will draw first blood? Who will push a little too much? Who will fill the void left by the departing Stim? Join Remco Vengeance for all the live action at 8PM UK for the start of another thrilling season.

Details
Date: 9th January
Damage: Full
Qualifying: Short
Race: 50%
Track Limits: Strict
Weather: Dynamic

Questions:
1. Happy with your new car?
2. Who are your main rivals this season?
3. Have you found any pace in the off season?
4. Do you prefer a car with understeer or oversteer?

1. Don't think there was any other option really 😂
2. Don't really have any to be honest
3. I've been changing my driving style at late & it takes some getting used to
4. I'd prefer not to have either to be honest 😉

1. Happy with your new car?
Definitely I was close to pick the toro Rosso in the f2 for the new season. I find this car looks amazing and drives pretty good on equal. I hope it is as good as performance.
2. Who are your main rivals this season?
Im a driver from f2 and drive my 2nd season there now. I got asked if I wanted to race here and I took the opportunity to try a little bit new.
3. Have you found any pace in the off season?
I don’t know. I got 4th in the championship in the f2 season so I was quite happy with that.
4. Do you prefer a car with understeer or oversteer?
As I’m driving on the pad I prefere cars with oversteer.

1. Happy with your new car?

Yeah, I think it's fair.

2. Who are your main rivals this season?

Ash, Cliffy, Oogie, Greeny, and anyone else with front running pace.

3. Have you found any pace in the off season?

No, I've barely played since the F3 finale, it's been good.

4. Do you prefer a car with understeer or oversteer?

Oversteer, but not too much. I'd rather have extreme understeer than oversteer lets put it that way.

1. Happy with your new car?
Best I could hope for here.

2. Who are your main rivals this season?
I think joel's experience will catch people by surprise. Cliffy and Ash should be fast and AMS of course, who has brilliant race craft.

3. Have you found any pace in the off season?
Yup, had a slow end to last year which gave me a much needed breather. Think i've picked up a tenth or two of pace since then.

4. Do you prefer a car with understeer or oversteer?
Used to like understeer last season but sort of had to readjust my driving style to cope with oversteer because of the new setup hacks.

Few decimals.

Understeer.

Q: 2nd, Gutted to miss out on pole by something like 11 milliseconds, but credit to frome for doing just about enough and taking the first pole of the season!

R: 4th, I wont lie, I probably threw away a win. I had a battle with frome and greeny for the lead for roughly half the race, but I just broke my wing slightly on the back of Greeny at turn 3. That forced me to pit around lap 15 for SS tyres. I was dropped to 6th and fought my way back to 4th position.  I would say that at the time of my incident I was faster than Greeny, so it was quite frustrating to have that happen, but also it bodes well for next week because I don't feel Australia is a track I'm that good at, hopefully Malaysia is kinder.

In the end, with only a single penalty I would have beaten frome and greeny had I not gotten that damage, and probably ccbrain as well. But that's how it goes, there's still plenty of time to make up for it. Congrats to ccbrain on the victory, that's exactly why myself and Oogie drafted him in, I'm pleased with that bit of recruitment  :D

Q: 3rd

R: 8th

Had a decent start and then when AMS tried the move on Frome I tagged the back of him ever so slightly to get a green wing damage. Let my teammate through so he could fight them. Pit on lap 5 for softs and a wing change. Came out in 9th. Was rapidly catching people and probably had the pace to win it till JP had a moment coming out of the chicane and then he put me in the wall. Had to change the wing again and was 16th when I came out on SS on lap 8. Took those to the end to get 8th position.

Congrats to CCbrain on the win and Frome and Greeny on a hard fought podium. Great racing overall I think which was maligned by some erratic driving from certain individuals. Hopefully people will have calmed down by next week on the wider track in Malaysia.

Qual - No time set

I didn't come out till late & then when I did I got wing damage on my flying lap so that was quali over.

Race - DNF

Had an ok start & people around me were having incidents & I was able to capitalize on the situation. I had an incident on lap 5 & I got slight wing damage but I decided to carry on. By lap 8 I was in P7 but unfortunately I had an incident with oogie in sector 2 which ruined both of our races. I  had to pit & switch from a 1 stop strategy to a 2 stop strategy but weirdly my car never felt quite right after the incident & I kept on losing the back end coming out of corners & eventually it cost me another wing change & decided to call it a day.

I'm encouraged by the pace I had in the early part of the race so I hope I can somehow replicate that in Malaysia

Q-7th on super softs. 0.4 of pole

R-10th
Everything just happened at turn 1. Giving me a orange front wing and forcing me to pit. Then they didnt change my wing so pitted lap 2 as well. Then fighted back to 10th.
