The only wrong choice appears to be STR.. hopefully they can surprise later on in the season.

They did last year, but then again Vettel is now driving the Red Bull...

They still have Bourdais who was doing a damn good job as well, in Vettel's mighty shadow. I'm not too convinced by Buemi, haven't seen much memorable from him in A1 and GP2. I have to admit though that I didn't really watch GP2 a lot last year.

Tbh Bourdais had a pretty bad season..

(Vettel 35points and 8th overall, Bourdais 4 points 17th overall.. no matter how you look at it he was pretty poor last season.. no better way to compare than a team mate)

Yes, but tbh he was unlucky at times too. Anyway, Bourdais is a good driver (otherwise you don't make it to F1), but he's not a top driver and since Red Bull will focus itself more on it's main team this year I'm afraid Torro Rosso will lack development and will battle with the Force India's this year... but nothing is certain this season.  :)

Things were really looking good for me with Vettel in second, but than that stupid collision  :grr:

btw they've not included Trulli's penalty, so points are in fact incorrect.

Disaster for me, my hopes for the season ended when Nakajima noseplanted into the wall lol He's my driver, chassis and engine, I guess the moral of the story is don't put all your money on the driver who gets a ride because of sponsorship possibilities rather then talent :handbag:

Glock did okay in the race for me, but their penalty in qualifying meant I got no points for that part. Rosberg was looking good in the other Williams, but his botched pitstop and lack of grip on the soft tyres lost a lot of places towards the end :(

Gonna be a few races before I can afford to change anything  :|

EDIT:Argh just realised its the Williams Toyota... :(

Getting better and better, it was perfect choise to get rid of Barrichello and bring Vettel in the team.. result.. 1st and 2nd for my drivers.
:)

66th overall atm... (out of 28112 players) will be very very hard to choose the lineup for the next race..
(im in a happy position where i can pretty much pick anything)

I had Vettel - Button since the start, just a pity about that first race where Vettel and Kubica collided as it took longer for me to be able to afford decent chassis and engine that way.
Just like you said Jarkko, it will be a difficult choice for next race as all the teams will have new updates in Barcelona...

I might take Kimi instead of Button for the next race.. Kimi had proper fighting spirit in the last one.. and i must believe Ferrari will get their car going finally.. (they have been working literally 24/7 lately to get good new parts for car)

Both my teams have more points then yours  :knockout:  ;)

I was actually referring to my lowest ranked team (Button - Vettel from the start), but that's my team with the most cash. I'm going to wait until after free practice sessions of Barcelona to alter my team as it's too difficult to predict what the updates will do now.

I'll take a calculated risk for sure. It's not because I wait until after the practice sessions that I won't take a risk  :dunno:

I exchanged Vettel out of both teams, once for Raikkonen and once for Trulli... Also changed Red Bull for Brawn and once with Toyota. I think Red Bull hasn't improved as much as the other teams, but I could be wrong of course  :)

I wanted to replace Vettel with R?ikk?nen and RB engines with Ferrari.. but was just a million short... grrrr! So i made the choice of keeping Vettel but took Ferrari engines.. interesting to see.. id love to keep my 66th overall position.

simjunkies1: 25+21+15+9+7=77
befast: 25+8+15+9+10+8=75
f1 belgium: 25+15+9+5+4=58
3 legged dog: 25+8+15+9+9+6=72
champcar gp: 25+10+15+9+9+6=74
SJFOR: 25+18+15+9+10+8=85
Befat: 25+10+15+9=59
Van Isle Race: 25+4+9+6=44
bat069: 25+2=27
grimwulf: 21+10+12+6+9+6=64

SJFOR did the best job with an all BrawnGP team  :)

I did a real last minute change and I'm glad I did so far, Vettel is very light and 'only' P4, Barrichello got a better chance for podium  :)

Annoyingly its been pretty safe choice to go with full Brawn GP.. it lasted much longer than many (everyone) thought. I now have succesfully updated my team, Ill support a Finn, no matter how it goes.
