Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Abu Dhabi GP
Welcome to the F5 season Finale here in the Middle East at the Yas Marina Bay circuit. The setting of so many title deciding races since its entrance into F1. We will see the F5 title decided here on Sunday night between Nicknockegan and TheSpaniard. After winning last time out in Brazil Nick goes into the this race with a 15 point lead. The two drivers have been close all season long. It's a title fight which has been nip and tuck since Round 1 with as many as 5 drivers involved at one point. But ti all concludes under the lights of Abu Dhabi.

With two DRS zones down the main straights, there are opportunities to overtake here. The tricky fast left, right hander after T1 will test the downforce of these cars and commitment of the drivers. Settle down and get ready for lights out on the first F5 season on the current game.




Who do you think will win the race?
Do you think TheSpaniard can do the unthinkable and win the championship?
Are you happy with how your season has gone?
What do you expect out of the final race?
Are you a fan of the season finale's in Abu Dhabi?

      Time of Incident in Video: 1:17- 1:20
      Drivers involved: Lfc4life711 and lukebailey14
      League: F1/F2/F3/F4/F5/F6/FP: F5
      What happened: I had taken a cautious entry into the pit lane and felt a hit from behind from Luke, I was off the throttle and braking, this caused me to speed into the pit lane.
      How did it affect your race: It cost me second place as I had a 5 time pen added to my race time.

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Singapore GP
The F5 title race enters the streets of Singapore and the Marina Bay circuit under the cover of darkness. This marathon race between the walls will sure to see a survival of the fittest and require maximum concentration. The title race has been incredibly close all season and the pressure to perform and be consistent could lead to errors here. But an error here normally leads to a wing missing or even a wheel and race over.

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Belgian Grand Prix
The PSGL F5 entourage stops off in the heart of the Ardennes forest at the legendary Spa Francochamps. Longest track on the calendar, it is bound be a exciting GP. The sight of many conflicts during the wars in the 20th century, a thin strip of tarmac will provide the battles for nearly 2 hours of tough racing.

Eau Rouge, one of the trickiest corners in the world will test the cars and the drivers to their limits, La Source provides a chance for an overtake before the second bout of DRS after Eau Rouge. Car and setup have never been so important here as the car twist and turns through high speed corners in the middle sector before braking heavily for the bus stop chicane. If you all that is bad enough, throw in the unpredictable weather that we see here in the Ardennes and who knows what will happen.

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Hunagrian Grand Prix
Dubbed the Monaco without barriers as it is almost impossible to overtake here, the PSGL circus comes to Budapest on the banks on the Danube.  With a long history in F1, Hungary has seen some good racing but also some less so good races. The DRS down the main straight and into T2 is what save this track from a procession.


 

Basic at best, what will this seasons Hungarian GP throw up?

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] German Grand Prix
PSGL returns to Hockenheim and Germany, the scene of the Evaluation races before the season started. This classic track has plenty of overtaking opportunities. This race has had its moments both on the old longer historic layout and its newer form, who could forget Luciano Burti launching himself into the air on the back of a slow starting Michael Schumacher in 2001, putting the Germans in tears for their home favourite, and more recently Sebastian Vettel going off into the gravel on a wet track in the stadium section while in a commanding position.

This race is sure to throw up a surprise or two and with some rain it could be an exciting F5 race come Sunday.




Do you prefer the old long layout or this layout?

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] French Grand Prix
F5 returns from its 2 week break to France and the redeveloped colourful Paul Ricard in the South of France. Back on the calendar and taking the place of Magny Cours after a long absence, Paul Ricard is set to provide an interesting race.

From long straights to tight chicanes to fast twisty final sector, this track has everything, as well as the ability to confuse and dazzle the F5 grid. I'm sure purchases of Paul Ricard's sat navs were a priority for the F5 grid to learn what can be seen is a maze a tarmac in the middle of the red, white and blue.



What are your impressions on Paul Ricard?

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Canadian Grand Prix
Next stop on the calendar brings the PSGL F5 grid to Montreal by the St Lawerence freeway, a beautiful setting for what should be a spectacular Grand Prix. Named after the legend Gilles Villeneuve, this circuit always throws up a classic.

There have been some spectacular racing and hair racing moments in years gone by. Who can remember that incredible Robert Kubica crash in which the Pole was lucky to walk away from.

With three DRS points, overtaking here is a real possibility, the long straight down to the famous Wall of Champions provides the best opportunity along with the option of the switchback at the hairpin before that. Being a tight circuit the first lap will be interesting as the cars sort themselves out.

Not forgetting the unusual pit exit as you join on the racing line for turn 2. Also speeding in the pit lane here is a real possibility given the top speeds you pick up down the long straight.



What are your predictions for the podium here?

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] British Grand Prix
The home of F1 is the venue for the third round of the season, the new redesigned layout has caused plenty of good close racing throughout the years.

We have legendary corners like the old T1 Copse, the fast twisty maggots and beckets abs he redesigned abbey.

There are two DRS zones with the most prominent isevdown the Hanger straight.

Silverstone, an old RAF air field first hosted a F1 race in the inaugural 1950 season. There are many teams located near by so it is considered a home race for most of the grid.


Who do you think will win the title this season after the first 3 rounds?
Who do you think will qualify on pole?
Do you think Silverstone still has a future on the F1 calendar?
Which do you prefer old layout or current layout?

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Chinese Grand Prix
Round 2 of the 11 round championship takes us to China and the Shanghai International Circuit. First held in 2004, China has been a main edition on the early calendar for over a decade now. With its tricky turn 1 and long back straight, there are opportunities to overtake. The tricky right hander on to that long back straight though will be important, a poor exit will leave you completely vulnerable all the way down the the hairpin.

Last time out in Australia TheSpaniard won relatively comfortably, he will be looking to follow up his first victory on his PSGL debut with another here.

Formula 1 2018 / Re: F1 2018 - Stewards' Office
In my defence I am 100% adamant I got a shunt as I had already broke early for the corner, as I was initially on the inside before that footage starts, I don’t enter the corner at that speed, my corner speed increases as I go into the corner, after I felt the hit I actually had my finger nowhere near the accelerate button. Why would I increase my corner speed going into the corner after braking, unfortunately I have no footage but from this day I will be recording my footage as I don’t trust some of the drivers we have in this league having not raced with them before.

Any pen I think will be harsh as I am adamant I got shunted into the corner but will accept any decision that is made.

Formula 5 League (F5) / [F5] Round One: Australian Grand Prix
Australia hosts the start of the new F5 season, the first on F1 2018. A street circuit with run-off areas Australia is a twisty track with some challenging corners, two chicanes and fast middle sector. The second chicane being the trickiest and easiest to cut.

For the first time ever there will be three DRS zones, one on the main straight, one on the run down to turn 3 and one after the second fast chicane. These are the only places to overtake around Albert Park.
