Formula 5 League (F5) / Re: [F5] Stewards' Findings
Brazil: LFC and Lukebailey - Result: 5 second penalty for LukeBailey

We felt Luke should have been more careful on entry to the pitlane and as such earns himself the same penalty LFC recieved.

FP Race Calendar and Results / [FP] Round 13 - Malaysia

Round 13 -  The Malaysian Grand Prix


With only one round to go, AMS secured victory for Haas to put himself 2 points clear of Joelianomanu in the hunt for the title. Oogie_azeem kept his hopes alive by securing an excellent 2nd place for Toro Rosso, finishing just 1.4 seconds off the lead after a close battle all race long. JackLacey took his second podium in a row, keeping his own bid very much alive with Joelianomanu bringing it home in 4th.

And so we come to the final round of the Formula Performance championship. For the final time in what is likely to be a long while, we head to Malaysia to play out a four way title battle. Malaysia is known for its highly difficult to predict weather conditions, so we could be in for a real treat if the heavens open. How the contenders handle any difficult conditions should be fascinating, with so much at stake the risk/reward is huge. Who will prevail, will AMS claim a second FP crown? Can the experienced Joelianomanu secure his first PSGL title, having been in the works for 7 years? Will JackLacey pull of a Sebastian Vettel esque victory from 2010 and come through to win despite starting the day as 3rd favourite? Or will Oogie_azeem pull off one of the greatest comebacks and pip them all?

Find out with Irun at 8pm on Tuesday, for the final time on F1 2017...

FP Race Calendar and Results / [FP] Round 12 - Russia

Round 12 -  The Russian Grand Prix


After the shock news that defending champion ashbest would be absent for the final three races of the season, the chasing pack entered Austria knowing a title was truly there for the taking. And after a rain soaked event, it was JackLacey who took the biggest step towards a possible title with victory for Renault. He was followed home by Golden Oldies pair Frome and Grumpy who each kept themselves in with a chance for another race. Season 18 Champion AMS took 4th for Toro Rosso in his hunt for a second FP title, whilst JackTyler did a splendid job of securing 5th for the Scuderia despite his 10 second penalty after a shocking home race at Monza.

Elsewhere the second placed man in the standings, Joelianomanu suffered a painful last lap puncture that robbed him of a brilliant result for Haas, and JPGreenwood took his second points scoring finish in succession. It was also a race to forget for qprbeasts despite a promising start, leading many laps until he was forced to make a pitstop and sadly for him the track didn't dry fast enough.

The FP circus moves onto Russia next on the Black Sea for the penultimate round of the season. The track is not the most popular circuit around, many calling it a "car park" and "boring" due to its many 90 degree corners and infinite run off areas. However some may well thrive in this environment as penalties are expected to be rampant. It's maybe the toughest test of who can be right on the edge in terms of taking the maximum track possible, yet keeping it consistently within the limits in order to avoid time penalties. Who can tame the track limits and take another step towards the title? Find out with Irun at 8pm on Tuesday!

FP Race Calendar and Results / [FP] Round 11 - Austria
Round 11 -  The Austrian Grand Prix


A brilliant wet weather drive saw QPR take his first victory of the season on what was a miserable day for the Tifosi at Monza, with Dano's point the only consolation after a tough race! Championship contender Joelianomanu used his years of experience to bring home his Renault in 2nd position, with team mate BigC playing the role of rear gunner in 3rd after a good defensive display to hold the chasing pack at bay, despite early damage. ccbrain and AMS rounded out the top 5, the former being the only one of the top 6 to even make a pitstop as the tyre wear held out for those who risked it.

Elsewhere the hero of the hour, JPGreenwood managed to carry over his good Singapore form from F5 to secure his first points of the season in some of the worst conditions possible! And after Golden Oldies failed to score a single point at Monza, that leaves Bestboogie122 as the only team to score in every round.

We cross the Alps now to journey to Spielberg for the Austrian Grand Prix. The track is fairly popular with drivers, despite being the shortest lap on the calendar it has some truly challenging corners. And with the gaps being so tight here you really have to nail your lap in qualifying even more so than normal. Luckily for those who fail to do so there is good overtaking opportunities into turn 2 or 3. With just 3 rounds to go, some of the contenders will start to drop out of the picture, who can keep their hopes alive? Will Joel take another stride towards a first PSGL title? Or will Ash overcome the odds to get one hand on retaining the trophy? Find out with Irun at 8pm on Tuesday!
