Lots of people seem to think that tomorrow will be the day Perez gets announced for Red Bull.

Good to see changes being made to Circuit de Catalunya too, should hopefully improve overtaking, even if just a little tiny bit!

That final section revamp was always terrible. Playing that circuit in games is great fun until you get to that bit, then it's gooseberry fool.

While i feel sorry for Alex Albon, it's great that Checo got the drive.

Amazing for Perez, last time at McLaren he didn’t really seem ready for a top team but now he genuinely does. Albon seems like a nice enough chap but not good enough for Red Bull sadly, is he test/reserve driver for them next year then?

The fact that the 2013 McLaren was crap didn't help either, as Jenson Button struggled with it too.

No it certainly wasn’t one of the top cars like the 2012 McLaren had been, still though I was referring to how he handled himself, he seemed very hot headed from what I recall, seemed to have little respect for his much more established teammate with Perez just about driving into the rear of Button at Bahrain and losing a little of his front wing. He just seems a more complete driver and more deserving of the drive than he did then.

I have just watched this clip when Damon won the championship in 96 at the time, i hated Schumacher and i knew he did not think much of Hill after 95. That vid has a clip of MS congratulating Damon on being champion at Suzaka, saying he earned it and waited long enough. Big Kudos to him to say that after their rivalry great unseen clip.

Keep Fighing Michael

Nice livery Vermi, mine looks like a knock-off Caterham.

Sad for Albon, mainly because by rights he should have gone to Alpha Tauri rather than fully dropped.

Cheers guys, the first design i came up with was heavily influenced by the 2009 Brawn, and since then i've tweaked and improved it season by season.

Good job you didn't base it on a Ferrari as you'd have had to make the car perform worse and worse each season.

That seems to have happened in my career game, each season the Ferrari gets slower and slower, even though Hamilton is driving one of them (he qualified 20th in the last race i did).
