Formula 3 League (F3) / Re: [F3] Paddock
Tyre Wear Woes Cost Toro Rosso Victory

The Bahrain Grand Prix looked to be the perfect opportunity for Toro Rosso driver ChulloCookie to redeem himself after a terrible start to the season. Practice sessions before the race suggested that he had the pace to win, but alas it was not meant to be.


Chullo on a flyer in qualifying.

Sunday's qualifying was a mixed bag for the Toro Rosso team: OntoThePodium elected to qualify on the soft compound as to ensure a one stop for the race whereas Chullo elected to qualify on the super softs. As a result of these differing strategies, OntoThePodium started in P14 and Chullo started on pole.

Chullo leads the pack out of turn one.

Chullo maintained his lead until lap 8 when he was hit by an out of control Ferrari, luckily he avoided any damage and stayed in second for the rest of the lap. Further down the field OntoThePodium had a run in with a Renault which damaged his front wing.

On lap 8 Chullo pitted onto the mediums as the tyre wear had taken its toll, allowing him to undercut the Sauber of Paulovic and take back the lead. The two battled for the next ten or so laps until Paulovic was able to pass Chullo on lap 20. Then on lap 21 AMK began battling with Chullo, who's tyres by this point were beginning to go off, despite his conservative driving throughout the race. Next came Boogster, then Frome, and then Raybay, leaving Chullo in 6th position on the final lap. To add insult to injury, Chullo picked up a left rear puncture.

Meanwhile, after his pitstop, OntoThePodium had another run in with a Renault and picked up more front wing damage, eventually bringing the car home in 10th position.


When interviewed, Chullo gave these comments:

Reporter: "Chullo, tell us what happened that race, how do you feel?"

Chullo: "It's just not good enough, I do everything that I can do to win and I get let down by something which I can't control. This race and Brazil have been a nightmare for me and the team, especially when you consider that I could have been leading the championship if not for these issues."

Reporter: Next race is at Spa, how are you feeling about the upcoming race?

Chullo: "I'd like to say that I'm feeling confident, but I would be lying if I said that I wasn't worried about it with all of the issues that we have been having."

F3 Race Calendar and Results / Re: [F3] Round 3: Bahrain GP - 27/05/18
1 - How did the last race go for you? Were you happy with the result?


2 - Have your expectations/goals changed after two rounds?
Well I clearly have the pace to do something, but the connection is a bit lacking.

3 - Who do you expect to see on the podium this week?
Me for 3 minutes before getting disconnected.

4 - Will Friso score points this week? If not, when?!
There are 3 things that are certain in life:
Death
Taxes
Friso bottling it

5 - Are you a fan of the track? Favourite memory here?
Probably my 2nd ever league race on F1 2014 where I charged all the way from 5th to 2nd on the last lap (too bad I had a penalty so I got dropped to fourth. Oh god I was sowing the seeds.)

6 - Which do you prefer, the day or nighttime event here?
Night for sure, imo the races have got more interesting since the switch, maybe due to easier tyre temps?.

7 - Ferrari have revised their wing mirrors for the Monaco GP this weekend. Do you expect more teams to follow suit?
Probably.

It's just occurred to me the psychological advantage Friso has now.

>continue to purposely retire from every single race
>legendary bottle status
>next season comes
>all of the competition has moved up leagues

Sports Discussion / Re: Formula 1 Discussion - Round 1 - Azerbaijan GP
And jesus, FOM need to get their shit together with the race graphics and timings. It has been all over the shop these last few races.

My personal favorite was when they tried to compare Stroll and Kimi's speeds but accidentally compared Sirotkin's who had been out since lap 1. The best part was that even then it was wrong because it displayed 20mph for Sirotkin.

PS4 Games Discussion / Re: F1 2017 Discussion [PS4 | PC]
Been thinking about F1 2010 lately and how in early builds they had 2009 cars, Wonder if anyone ever got their hands on an early version because I would love to give them a spin on a good game instead of F1 2009.
