Quite happy with that result - couldn't have asked for much more given the relative performance of the cars.  2nd and 4th is a great result for us.  Hopefully the Renault likes Bahrain more than it did Sepang.

Learn to drive your car better.  The recap said you made a driver error and had to pit that 3rd time to fix it. Tongue

I on the other hand had an abysmal start, engine trouble and never was able to actually drive the car near the speed of anyone else, leading me to believe Zeke fed me a roofie before the race started, fearing my obvious superior something or other... smile

Could have been worse, you could have gotten punted from P1 like I did. Cost me a surefire podium.

Meh.  Byrns and I had a go at maybe 4/5 but I had transmission problems.  Pushed a bit too hard I guess.  Speaking of trannies, I did manage to thwart Bob's advances for 7 or so laps iirc.  Then Zeke and ... someone passed me on the last lap.  Byrns picked up the slack for Spyker though.  Watch out you top three, we're nipping at your heels.

Ferrari (Duh)
McLaren (Duh)
Super Aguri (Wha?)

Nah, it's just a bit random is all.  I expected Renault to be bad, but not necessarily this bad.  Still, it's not terribly surprising; in real life I wouldn't be shocked if any of those 3 teams came ahead of the Renaults.

My goal is 2nd in points and 3 wins. If I can do that, limit retirements, and continue learning the nuances of the game, I will be happy.

Hey Zeke - for Le Mans and the shorter races (like the next one), is it generally a good or bad idea to change drivers?

I've seen no differences switching drivers, other than not having too many Lap 1 incidents when running my spatial awareness driver.

Hold on.....

A quick glance at my other LeMans game at Mid Ohio showed a GTS driver getting "fatigued" halfway thru, and then "really tired" by the end. Although lap position didn't seem to suffer.

She didn't switch drivers in that race at all.

Retired in 4 races today. One was a tire blowing, my fault, but the others were all crashes. I only put my starts at 62 and agression at 60, I don't get what the deal is. It's starting to get frustrating.

Those are both pretty high settings. I blew a start in a Williams in my 2007 league with a start of 25.

Same here. I don't worry about breaking down anymore (like I did in the 06 Williams, where every lap was like walking on eggshells), I worry about getting punted and that costing me podiums, which are the natural goals for someone in the 07 McLaren.
