F1 2011 |OT| Not bad for a number 2 game

What sort of times are people getting for Singapore?
Whatever your best is just subtract a second or two and that's about where I am obviously.

Phleg and Speech were doing 1.35/1.36,s
I was lapping 1.37s and Foli was sat on the grid the entire time I think :D

We have a 20 minute quali session with a 50% race on dynamic weather. All assists are banned apart from automatic gears.

Sounds good, exactly what I'm doing now in career anyway!

I'll be online tomorrow afternoon before the racing kicks off if anyone wants a session or two. Add me on GFWL, Jibbed.

I apologise in advance for everyone I'm going to take out tomorrow, I just can't brake for shit at this PIECE OF SHIT FUCKING TRACK.

That is all.

Sorry Foli :( I've found I can get round at a reasonable pace if I'm very hard on the brake pedal, need to sort out my gears and I might be able to get 1:36's.

Although it's alright me getting these times in isolation, our league is a totally different story!
 



Rain dampered a potentially thrilling race last weekend in Germany. The racers were separated by huge gaps and the fans left halfway through due to lack of action. The opening laps were exciting, however, as the Force India drivers began to trade blow with vital world championship points up for grabs. Phleg performed a phenomenal and clean overtake on Lucius, which caused the ex-champion to spin out of anger and later claim his teammate was too aggressive. The stewards looked in to the incident and told Lucius to "man the fuck up", a sentiment which the entire paddock shares.

Crumbs also made no friends at Ferarri as he rammed Orgun off the road on the first lap. He claims that the Ferarri driver was at fault, however on-board footage from Foliorum validated Orgun's claims that Crumbs was "more of a downie than me".

There's no risk of a thrilling race tomorrow as Singapore is possibly the worst track ever made by man. In a recent poll the drivers were asked if they'd rather have their children kidnapped, raped and brutally murdered or race at the track. The overwhelming majority would have preferred the former, a shocking result which made Lucius86 extremely pleased. He's been spotted with rope and a trench coat during the practice sessions this week.

Wherever I make a mistake and need to get some speed back :lol

Good shout, most of the time I get it done with on the first few corner exits so I don't have to bother for the rest of the lap. Shit's complicated enough as it is.

Edit: This race just got more ..interesting. I've been challenged by my mate to do this dressed in full race-gear, £10 says I won't.

I'll probably record this for everyone's entertainment.

PS: Kyaw put on Options in the wet like a downie.

Pretty much sums my feeling up about the race.

I had decent pace throughout, but a glitchy penalty at the start and two incidents which left me without a wing for an entire lap put any aspirations of a decent result to rest.

Roll on Korea.
 
Best race of the season so far. Loved it. Vid will be up in 2/3 hours.

READ THIS OR ELSE: Korea will be taking place next weekend (5th May), and the final race Abu Dhabi is pushed back to May 19th because the points are all close and we want Lucius to make it for the final fight.

I'll post this again next week, but just so you have advanced warning.
 
My highlights

Eventful race. I was in the lead, we had a safety car, Hardan's phantom was all over the track and I nearly, NEARLY, had Lucius in the final stages. This is one of the best race vids I've done I think.

I'll watch the other vids in a bit!
 
When I was chasing Lucius on the last lap? Yeah, it was a sloppy as hell lap, I was just thinking about passing him. The overtake I tried on him was absolutely awful and just blind desperation, haha. I was frustrated I had no more laps left and that my spin fucked up what should have been a fight I won :(

... Didn't stop me messing with him on that last corner though ;)

You shouldn't have let off on the straight. That was yours for the taking :(
 

I sound like a mentalist when the SC is out and I can see Hardan's ghost. It's amazing that NONE of that shit was in your, or anyone's, screen.

Great edit on the last lap, hahaha. That was up there with our Brazil stint that was!

You shouldn't have let off on the straight. That was yours for the taking :(

Nah, once I botched that overtake attempt it was his. I know I gave it back but I couldn't put my foot down and take it then even if I could get past clean. I just wanted to make him squirm before he got the win!

In your vid at 5:54 you let off, when there was clearly room for both of us, and you would have had been further up the road for your overtaking move that I might would have had to yield to. Did you lift because of your corner cut?

The final straight I am glad you did let off, because you corner cut AND pushed me wide :p
 
5:54 I did lift cos I corner cut, yeah. You were a bit wobbly so I could have justified it but in my mind I wanted it to be clean... then the next corner I had that massive "OMG MUST GET HIM MOMENT" and just attacked you :\ Hahaha. Completely cock move!

The last corner I intended to both corner cut and push you wide... however I didn't intend to brake so late. I nearly DID win! >_>
 
Hahaha, my girlfriend calling me a "stupid git" at 4 minutes.

Edit: Hahaha you left in her dressing me too. Thanks for that!

Good vid that. You saw a decent bit of action!

This track is gonna be fun for battling. :) Had a nice little scrap with Speech earlier, but it's harder to overtake than I thought it would be because of how high speed many of the corners are!
