F1 Game 2015 - Mehico

So many races now, they have to run them on consecutive weekends, though Mexico isn't far to go after Texas, especially as nobody's trying especially hard to stop you heading in that direction.

Anyhoo, y'all need to guess the top ten finishers, pole person and fastest lapper, and answer the bonus question: guess the winner's overall race time (one point for closest guess)

Deadline: Friday 30 October 2359 GMT

Fascinating practice sessions yesterday, seemingly nobody managed a clean lap without significant mistakes – even the pace setters. I always liked the Rodriguez circuit before it was closed for refurbishment. The track is almost exactly the same until turn 12, where they have added a rather fiddly section before they rejoin the fearsome old final corner. I question the fiddly section between turns 12 and 16. Ideally I would just ditch that and the cars would run from the esses, the exit of turn 11 and towards the long original right hander.

Nevertheless, I used to love it when Champ Car, A1GP and NASCAR Xfinity used to run at the Rodriguez circuit. Even with the reconfigured final sector, it is a relatively short lap – Interlagos and Austria prove that the lap doesn’t have to be overly long to produce great racing. I think the Grand Prix will be fantastic.

As soon as I saw it was bright & sunny, I watched the first lap then gave up.

Great circuit and fans, but the race was dull, especially after the last one.

Sprinklers going off on random parts of the circuits is what is needed.
Martin

That would help.

The Mexican fans were drinking enough beer to really enjoy the race, maybe I should have joined in.
Sav

The final sector kills the circuit for me. So unnecessarily fiddly without anywhere to legitimately pass, at least in a high downforce single seater. The announcers kept lavishing praise on the stadium section, sure, the atmosphere looked great - but it only seriously hampered overtaking. Priorities...

The first two sectors are fine, its turn 12 onwards where the issue is.

Before the Rodriguez circuit closed for its current refurbishment, this used to be the layout. Lovely flow to it with the ballsy right hand sweeper at the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M07NWYE1qDU

I see Montoya was on the grid for pre-race festivities yesterday, I wonder if he remembers turn 1. He won the NASCAR Xfinity in 2007 by making contact with his then teamate Scott Pruett, to much post-race controversy. Being a Latin audience the crowd didn't care, but the US media and the garage area did...

Oiii!!!!

I quite like Montoya but my word he likes a pie or two.
Sav

He had to shed pounds before he returned to IndyCar last year. He'll be in a tin top again when he tests the LMP1 Porsche in Bahrain.
