2020 F1 Season: Round 3

Post by JohnW » Thu Mar 26, 2020 7:32 am

The Sepang GP circuit !

( Yes, I changed it with less than two weeks before the race. After a couple sprint races I feel Sepang would provide a better race. )

( I'll create the image map shortly )

John you might check out the DRS setting on that track. I did a few laps and it seemed like DRS was available all the time.

It was probably setup before DRS was a thing. I don't have the know how or software to edit tracks and put in DRS detection zones.

This image shows the track has them, so if the rF2 track was created after the real one got them, then that was sloppy work. I suspect it was a port from rF1.

Remember when DRS was first introduced it was allowed all around the track during practice and qualifying, just limited to DRS zones in the race. Adam, have you try it in a race session?

1st off , adam needs to be banned for a race for that crap he pulled tonight! he shows up
at the last minute , starts in the back then proceeds to wreck half the field.thats not cool!

2nd , porvette , what the frick was that? i have a blue flag to let you by after glen on the last lap
so i tried to make it work to gain back the gap i had with jeff then you proceed to brake check and
weave in and out of the next corner blocking me and allowing jeff up to my bumper which he
proceeded to pass me on the last lap !

3rd , good job jeff using those 2 to gain up on me for that last point spot! grrrr!

maybe there is something to that practice thing , hmmmm ( walks away kicking the dirt! )

The replay will be reviewed. Let me know if incidents and unsavory driving, even if it didn't lead to an incident. PMs are fine.

Doose and Porvette collided before turn 1 and Doose collected me aswell. I slid in the grass and landed infront of Craig Hunter. Sorry Craig as you had nowhere to go.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I have never brake checked anyone at any time. As per weaving in and out I have no clue what you are referring to. I would not waste time weaving for any reason except to avoid cars or objects. On the last lap I noticed I was running out of fuel and would not make it and I might have slowed while I was feeling for buttons to change fuel mixture and boost. I may have moved offline but believe me I did not try to impede anyones progress in any way. If you were there while my attention was diverted elsewhere I am sorry but I had no idea anything you described took place.
Adam,
I never collided with anyone. If I touched someone it was not revealed in my car whatsoever. No perceivable bump, change of direction, or damage.
