RESULTS: Thursday Night F1 League: Round 16 @ Russia GP

Friday, October 17, 2014

This week’s F1 league saw drivers take a scenic drive through Europe and over the border to the former Soviet Union, St Petersburg, Russia.  The first race to grace this historic circuit in almost 100 years to the day, this event was marked as something special… and boy did it deliver!

Qualify:

The field, although smaller this week, come onto the track not knowing what to expect and there wasn’t a lot of time to practise … unless you got in early.  However, if qualifying times was anything to go by, we might have been in for a quick race.

Shane, Mikel and Chris all ran very quick times all qualifying within 0.6 seconds of each other, while Adam was only another 0.5 of a second outside them.  John & Murray both ran very respectable times, but were still a couple of seconds of the pace.

Race:

The race got off to a good start, but that good start didn’t take long for the ghosts of 1914 began to rear its head.

As soon as things were back underway, things began to turn sour for several drivers.  A two car pileup upon restart, one driver losing control within the first couple of corners, effectively rendering him back to the pits and out of the race, and (former) race leader, Shane Van Gilfeather, dropping three spots - as he lost his concentration.

Technology really can be a pain sometimes, and it seemed it was not playing nice with some drivers, however, it didn’t seem to faze Chris and Adam, who went on to a podium finish, while Shane did manage to hang on to third spot.
