Disappointing from Hulkenberg, we prepared him a car good for third and he bottled it. We expect an improvement tomorrow.

Going to be one of the Renaults, I always back my man so I'm going with Palmer.

-------------------------

Huge missed opportunity with Hamilton struggling to get to grips with the track, we had a chance at a front row start but unfortunately the pace wasn't quite there from Vettel. At least Nasr got through to Q2 to get us an extra point.

Palmer has been place on the transfer list, we feel he has severely underperformed and is no longer worthy of a place in the team. We are open to offers for swap deals, for other drivers or maybe a paperclip or something to be honest.

My poor juniors ;_;

Annoyed at Raikkonen for getting that penalty but in the end it didn't cost him. Hulkenberg is disappointed but we push one to OSTERREICH looking to hold our third place. As ever, piss off, B-Grade.

Race 9: Austrian Grand Prix

Image

The Red Bull Ring is one of my favourite F1 tracks, the layout is simple, it has a nice flow, creates good racing, and is surrounded by some truly beautiful scenery. It's also a place that has retained the same design ever since it was redeveloped in the mid '90's, which is surprising seeing how tracks like Hockenheim, Barcelona, and Silverstone have all been butchered by at least some degree over the years.

Anyhow, t'is highlights only on C4 this weekend, and as is the norm, i won't be seeing quali so expect the result from that to be delayed.

Good luck once again though to all our teams :)

Fantasy FIA Announcement

Also, just a heads up, this will most likely be my final season of running Fantasy F1. I have for a while, been gradually winding down my presence on these boards, and as this is the only major thing i'm actively involved with here now, it too will likely be coming to a close. I will continue to host the game until the end of the 2016 F1 season, but after that, should anyone wish to take on this game for 2017 then you will be more than welcome to do so.

Race 10: British Grand Prix

Image

Welcome to Silverstone, the home of the British GP, and one of F1's classic circuits. Unfortunately, some of the track has been butchered in recent years (that sharp right/left (turns 3 and 4) combo is horrid and lacks any sort of flow on the F1 games), but thankfully the best parts of the circuits (becketts and copse) remain intact.

Silverstone has had plenty of memorable moments, from that nutter running down the hangar straight in 2003, to Mansell mania in 1992, so hopefully 2016 will prove to be another classic in this circuit's history.

Anyhow, as with last weekend, quali will be delayed and the race result should be unaffected.

Good luck to all.

The guy certainly gets around, i spotted him when i went to the olympics, he was wandering around parliament square that afternoon.

Didn't he also cause chaos at the Athens olympics in 2004? Not only that, but i think he appeared once on britain's got talent.

After running into some gearbox trouble, one of our race engineers blurted out some assistance via team radio, we're not sure if this means we're going to be lynched by the Fantasy FIA, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Hungary next, and the constructors championship is actually turning out to be a lot closer than was expected at the beginning of the season, see you soon :)
