If Yokomo had a start strategy having the 1 and 2 drivers, it didn't work.

No matter what happens in A2 & A3, Bruno has got to be the driver of the week.

He hadn't even driven on the track until a few days ago. He's one of the few top drivers who didn't do a practice visit or attend the warm up race.

Incredible.

So what is causing the traction issues? Is it the tires, no warmers, little sauce? Any ideas?

It's too hot for the tires. The cars look to be on ice at times!

It's making it far more interesting.

I don't think it is heat. They were starting to go faster at the end of the run.
Can't wait to hear why they were over 1 second off pace per lap at the first half of the run....

I hope his car is close to the '15, for my sake.

Yep, it was bad luck for him.

A3 is going to be massive, 3 drivers still have a great chance to win it.

It looks like we're going to have a new World Champion.

Driver A1 + A2 = Points

Bruno Coelho = 1 + 3 = 4
Naoto Matsukura = 3 + 1 = 4
Ronald Volker = 4 + 2 = 6
Marc Rheinard = 2 + 9 = 11


4 Candidates ... look forward for A3

Wouldn't be surprised if he choked.

Bruno hasn't looked as quick when the temps cool.

Volkner surely will win it. He's been the best racer this year.

But you can't bet against Rheinard...
