Someone other than Toyota won a pole!

Congrats, gellar.

Warmups should be really interesting with the weather change.

It's dried up a bit though... gonna be interesting to see how the race goes.  There's a chance for rain, that's for sure.

Wasn't the weather report for the 2nd race bone dry, and then it switched to moist before going back to bone dry?

Yeah in my experience... if there was a chance for rain at all during the weekend, there is a chance for rain during the race.  Not to say it will certainly happen, but I wouldn't be surprised by it in the least.

WOOOO.  My own teammate almost bonered me by a) holding me up at the start when I was clearly faster, and b) having another off and causing the safety car eroding what lead I had.  Still, my first win is special, though we didn't make any ground on Toyota for the constructors.

When I was reading the race summary, I was pissed at first.  Stalling at the start?  Wow.  Kratz bringing out the safety car REALLY helped me, though; and I wonder if I would have passed you if I had anymore time.  And to think, I was actually a lap down at lap 24, and was the last car on the lead lap when Kratz crashed.

Yeah I was rather terrified those last few laps... I knew my last stint was my longest (and thus on the worst tires) so I figured you had a decent shot at passing.

I think there were a couple of laps where I finished right on your tail.  I think the gap times were in the .005 second range.  How I never managed to get around you is beyond me.  Great win, though.

Renault 1-2 at The Ring!  Great race from the teammate, and it was nice to see that we were so much faster than everyone else that it let us screw around and race with each other for a while slywink.  Safety car came out with perfect timing for my first stop and I almost screwed myself by letting Zekester pass me once, but can't be upset with this result at all.

Renault is now tied with Toyota for #1 Constructors (though we have the lead with our tiebreaking 7 podiums) and I've taken the lead for #1 in the Drivers.  Can't ask for more than that.

Also, some of you guys seem to be retiring a lot... too high aggression/mechanical settings maybe?

   Teams using the Renault RS26 engine are now able to obtain a performance increase following an upgrade becoming available. This takes effect as of now.

Nice to see that the lump gets a an upgrade.  MORE WINZ.

Like I said in the game already......I sometimes forget this little rule for this game, since i'm running multiple games. But I don't know where this came from in the first place, because there is absolutely no advantage to pitting only once.

None of my games have I seen an advantage from anyone for pitting only once.

You know for as far off as Renault was with our setup (and we were pretty happy with it too), we can't be too disappointed in 3-4.

CSL told us at the beginning that people were consistently winning races on one-stoppers.  I wouldn't be shocked to learn he was full of shit.

If we agree on rules though, we should all stick to them.
