    Thats cool PMC, I think its better to work together.

    I passed the certification 1st time after doing the game for 2 seasons. (its open book so you have to look at the FAQs and rules) it gives you a little extra cash each season

    The next race is at Austra.

    Its a high fuel consumption track and medium on Tyres.

    on a rough guide I did:
    FW:590
    RW:590
    E:600
    B:650
    G:690
    S:500

    but work on it to get a better time or to suit your driver...

    Soft Tyres
    roughly about 287liters for the whole race (thats 5.5 per lap). I last did a 2 stop

    Rain probability: 90%-95% for the beginning of the race so maybe a very short first stint

    Also upadate and worn parts on your car that may not make another race

    Thanks, replaced them. I am going to take less risk this race because I think that is why I messed up my car.

    Going for a 3 stopper this race.

    Qualified for Abu Dhabi with:

    Front wing: 696
    Rear wing: 688
    Engine: 312
    Brakes: 653
    Gear: 177
    Suspension: 325

    Not sure how good it is because I was lapping in the 2:16s and 2:18s.

    I am going for a two stop race on the soft tyres. Starting with 90lts of fuel and each stop will top up to that as well.

    sorry missed the last race =/


    so the next race is at the indy oval. I dont have any data on this one.

    Also my driver went out of contract so i decided to sign a random bad driver and he turns out to be better than my previous one <ok>

    you have to be in amature to form a team, so if you want once one of us gets promoted then we could form our own team

    ok my setup is:
    F:190
    R:220
    E:605
    B:250
    G:750
    S:300

    My time in Q1 was:44.327s

    Im going for a medium compound tire to reduce the amount of pit stops needed as a lap is only 44 seconds (which is about the time of a pit stop)

    Fuel needed 4.2kl per lap (335ish for race)

    My Q2 time was: 47.390s

    Thanks Bando <ok> I am rubbish at guessing who much fuel is needed, last race I got it badly wrong and I had to pit twice in the last few laps because of it.

    This is my set up. (Based on Bando's)

    F:171
    R:178
    E:605
    B:250
    G:821
    S:236

    Going for a two stopper on the medium tyres.

    well this is a very high fuel race so I had to do a guess on figures I have for High and Medium fuel. Its an experiment but I will work it out after the race seeing how much fuel I actually do use a lap.
