RESULTS: Thursday Night F1 League: Round 18 @ Brazilian GP

Friday, November 07, 2014

This week our drivers headed south of the (Texan/US) border and travelled into South America where they had to navigate their way through what seemed the entire Amazonian Jungle just to get to the correct track …. Not really, we were having server issues loading the right track :-D

After things were setup, we were ready to roll!

Qually:

After things had settled down and all our drivers had actually found their way to the circuit, qualifying for this race looked like it was going to be tough with all our drivers clocking in times within 4 seconds of each other!  However, it was the two Scott’s (McDonald & Daniels) who came in fastest with 1:12.646 & 1:12.776 respectively. Adam was not far behind at all at 1:13.411 and it was Luke, Sam and our newcomer Al all coming in at the 1:14 mark, 1:14.220, 1:14.336 & 1:14.875 respectively. Murray rounded out the top 7 with a 1:16.633.

Race:

It seemed those quick times got most a little jumpy causing a pileup on the first turn! Whats that infamous saying …. Oh yeah, “a race is never won on the first turn” ... hmmm.

Anyways, after one false start, we were back off and running, with no hitches. The Scott’s and Adam were playing a gentle game of cat and mouse out in front, exchanging leads several times the whole race, however, the pace got to McDonald on lap 33 and had to come in for an early shower … and a few too many repairs….

Murray showed us all that qualifying last means nothing, with a solid, clean race ensuring he used his pit stops wisely and unnecessarily if not needed – and with Scott McDonald burning more than his tyres could chew, he was headed for a podium finish!

Luke, Sam and Al weren’t far behind though and pressing their claims on the coveted podium. On (his) lap 43, Sam was rippled stripped, having bottomed out and stuck for 5 laps, however, still managed to finish 5th.
