Formula Lee F1 2016 Challenge

Untitled Document

We had close to a full grid’s worth of entries for the Formula Lee Singapore challenge and here’s the results from the virtual race with the 1st points of the season too. It was fairly tight all week, but Derek managed to get his winning lap in just before the cutoff time (in true F1 Qualifying style) and goes to the top of the standings after the 1st points scoring race. The full grid and the points are below:

Watch out for the next race in Malaysia when Lee decides on the car, time & weather!

Another big week in Formula Lee and we had 27 drivers brave the twisty Sepang track in the wet conditions and Lee decided to make it at sunset as well just to really throw a challenge in with as dark skies as well as next to no grip! Some great times this week and we’ve been watching various Ferrari drivers creeping up the online leader boards across all 3 formats. Once again it came down to the wire with Dave “The Flying” Flynn holding provisional pole position right up intil an hour before the cutoff time when he was pipped by, now 3 time, winner Derek Schleicher. Special mention has to go to Darren Entwistle who managed to beat the cutoff by about 2 minutes and also push Lee down a place in the standings! We didn’t have time to read all the times out on this week’s podcast, but here’s the times that we got in…

Japan was a bit tougher than we though it was going to be and in a slightly slower car as well. And the F1 2016 Mcaren performed about as well as the real cars did in the race! The general opinion that we got from everyone was it’s a much harder circuit than it looks and small mistakes early in the lap can punish you for the whole thing and boy did it punish just about everyone! Once again though Derek Schleicher came up trumps (and shared his setup with everyone on the Facebook page too! So here’s how we a did this time round

Another tight race with the top positions changing all the way to the cutoff time, but once again Derek came out on top, first by posting a time that would have won anyway and then deciding to really go for it and see how close he could get to Lewis Hamilton’s actual pole time from the race of 1:35.999. And he came bloody close to it as well. Lee suffered a triple disappointment this week too, not only did he get Guttierrez’d into 11th place at the last minute, he also got beaten by 2 bass players (Lee & Conor) and if he hadn’t put a lst minute time in, it would have been 3 as Paul was ahead of him till just before the end as well!

That was evil! This got called Lee’s Revenge and did he take it out on all of us, Mexico in the wet in a Manor! Once again, Derek came out on top and actually clinched the inaugural title with a dominant win this week. The top 10 was pretty uncertain until just before the cutoff time and Paul almost got his 1st points, but was dumped out of the top 10 after a flyer from Josh Stuart and then just to add insult to injury, he gave Lee a hand with his setup and had to sit there and watch as Lee managed to put a decent lap together to finish 9th and scrape into the points at the very last minute!

Back to dry weather racing for Sao Paolo, unlike the real race which was the wettest of the season. This time around Lee was generous to us and gave us a Mercedes at noon. Another nip & tuck round with some close times, in fact Lee & Chris had identical times to each other at one point and finished only 1/1000 of a second apart. But the big news this week is that we have a different name on the top step of the podium! After dominating the championship this season, Derek Schliecher was pipped for the win by Conor McElroy

The last race of the inaugural Formula Lee season was what seemed to be an easy challenge round the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, in a Williams at dusk in dry conditions. We didn’t bargain on the track actually being a lot more difficult than it looks at first sight! Those kerbs on turn 9 are as bad in game form as they were in the actual race and did to a lot of virtual drivers what the did in real life to Jenson Button! Derek didn’t manage to put a time in this week, so this left the competition at at the sharp end open and it came down to Conor & Josh to battle it out. This week though Josh had the upper hand and also got the only sub 1:40 time on the board.

We also have to give special mention to Edstaban Forsyth who finished in 11th place and outside the points for the 4th time out of the 7 races! Sorry Ed, but better luck next season!
