2012 Team Selection

Post by JohnW » Mon Jan 16, 2012 9:52 pm

Welcome to the high stakes, high risk FiHS driver selection thread. Championships could be won or lost, right here ! Will the team mates be able to work together ? Can they even driver each others setups ? Will the mechanics favor one guy over the other ? Will management give the best parts to the #1 driver ? Will a dominant team emerge before the racing even begins ?

Ok, maybe that's a bit over the top, but somebody had to get " in the moment " for 2012 .


1) Team McLaren
Ricardo Gonzalez
Juice

yeah, the main driver has 48 hours to pick. At the time of John's post stating Ric and Juice are teamed up is when RS's (or next driver) time starts. He has until 12:52 AM EST Jan. 19 to make his selection. To which I think we need to contact him to remind him.

I hope to run full time once again this year, and I intend to drive for Red Bull Racing. I would like to retain Josh as my teammate at Red Bull Racing for 2012. I was informed over the off season that if I wanted to berate Josh about his setups anymore, I'd have to actually start paying him. So I have to actually employ his annoyingly shiny bald head now.

I would like to thank JKim for graciously allowing me the opportunity to drive for Red Bull this year. Red Bull is a team that I admire enormously in real life, so to be able to drive for the team this year is something I am grateful for and I appreciate him allowing me to do so. JKim is a top notch driver that I enjoyed working with last year and I look forward to working with this year as well. Truly, thank you mate!

Thanks for the offer Steven. Hopefully Team Red Bull can defend the crown with our tight tight RBR tshirts that only a little nephew can wear. Oh thats right...I don't have one!

JKim, you are now on the clock.

Hi guys, unfortunately I'm not returning to red bull this year. I will be joining the STR team. Looks like there are some really good teams already. Hopefully STR can compete with the big teams this year, and step it up. I would like Jeff O to return to STR as my teammate.

Two of my favorite drivers at STR and I'm glad to see they are going to work together in 2012!

This means, STUFF is now on the clock!

Stuff is only part time this year, so we need to move on to the next driver.

That would be Tim, followed by Sean.

Tim and Tom will be returning to the black and gold of Renault this season. This team has been improving since it started last year, and we hope to continue improving this year! Maybe even get....dare I say.....a podium finish?!
