Is it too early to get Australia loaded onto the server?

Thanks,

Alaster is either very good at Spain or he is going to set the standard for consistency this season (or other things not so obvious), while that pack of you, Tom, and I may be finding each other working to be as consistent as Alaster, and if those fast guys tangle, we can capitalize on their misfortune.

I wonder if it would be wise, or thoughtful, or a good idea to get HRT Alaster moved off of a car that is no longer in Formula one and onto a team that does exist, but has no second driver.

Marussia, Mercedes, and McLaren have only 1 driver, and there is much less opportunity to score points in the constructors title with only 1 driver. I've been trying to get the people I know to join the league and race, at least, part time, but no luck. I may get someone eventually to join my team. The guy in Brazil I know is heading toward winter.

Current Roster

Also: your team driver appears to have defected over to Mercedes - what is up in that part of the Silly Season?

I can say, without reservation, that I would gladly move to team up with Alaster, but again, HRT is not running this season in Formula 1, and part of the fun, to me, is watching the F1 races and using that inspiration to do better in this very welcome competition. A constructors battle is a layer of fun.

Hehehe consistently slow, you mean. We all got "Stuff-ed" by the reigning champ who lapped the field in the preseason race. Congrats to Stuff for a dominant performance. It will be different when the whole grid is on and I think Stuff, Sean, J Kim, and Josh will be the guys up front. As for Spain, I guess I just know the track a little bit, and it helped to have been driving the same car from last year. Which is why I would really like to stay with HRT. But I also recognize this league's aim to be as close to the current FIA F1 Championship as possible so I am willing to switch to the Sauber #15. What do you think Josf?

I think that is a good idea.

McLaren should be driven by someone, in my opinion, but Sauber has a Ferrari engine!

Is the switch, the team shuffle, OK?

Any objections? Is it too late?

I don't see why anyone would have an objection. Go for it!

Thanks Sean, I'm liking the Ferrari engine sound (very familiar to me) and I hope Alaster will be signed up for Sauber too. I can see in the future a reason to be less accommodating when giving up a racing position if team orders are issued by the employer.

We may see a tighter Constructors Title race this year?

Alaster,

Do you have a link to a new skin pack?
