Manager career of Dean Francis (Last updated: Jul 20th 2019, 02:00:08)
SEASON 71:
Previous Season: Relegated back to the Pros, so it was all about survival and rebuilding. I was just after the 10 points to guarantee retention but easily surpassed this. I was able to collect 3 wins as well and have scored myself a good driver
41........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
3..........Wins
3..........On the dias
1..........Fastest laps
5th......End of season standings
51 million. Current balance (made 6M last season)
MY GOAL: PROMOTION!!!! I should be able to promote this season, although I don't want to spend too much money doing this. Unfortunately, I will lose my driver after race 17, so I hope to get promotion done in 14 races, then maybe change my driver. Get me to a better window when I recruit another driver for my Master season. I am confident I can score 100 points here this season. Anything under that, and I wouldn't be happy

R1 A1 Ring...…………..4th...…..2nd 60CT Promotion season and pushed to the max here, trying to start the season strong. So far so good, just 1 too strong...………....113/111/107
R2 Magny Cours….….4th....….7th 60CT Car just was not suited to this track, and gee did it show. I thought the 3 stopper was the fastest but it wasn't...………………....111/109/106
R3 Anderstorp………….5th.......3rd 60CT A closer car match but still no match. I was never able to lead but still happy with this results. Keeps me in 3rd in group......102/106/105
R4 Portimao……………..4th.......5th 60CT I am still yet to get a perfect car match, hence I went a little backwards here. So many promoting, fighting to stay close...…..98/109/98
R5 Silverstone...………7th......40th 70CT RANDOM!! I just pushed too hard at the start, crashing out of the race in the first corner...……………………………………………………..100/107/101
R6 Slovakiaring……….2nd.......7th 50CT Just feel promotion may not be a good thing here! Will wind things back in this back half and see where I am at...………………..105/107/101
R7 Istanbul...…………..8th...…10th 40CT Yeah no surprise. I have downgraded the car and lowered my risks. I will get similar results for the rest of this season...……...101/102/99
R8 Grobnik……………….
R9 Hockenheim...…….
R10 Zolder…………………
R11 Hungaroring……….
R12 Laguna Seca………
R13 Brasilia...……………
R14 New Delhi...………
R15 Fuji...…………………
R16 Sepang……………..
R17 Yas Marina...……..

SEASON 70:
Previous Season: My first season in Master. A couple of 9th place finishes, a SLC in my best match last season when I pushed a little too hard at the start. Finally another race where I was sitting 3rd, I ran out of fuel with 1 lap to go. So few silly mistakes has meant I walk away from the Masters with 0 points, when I should have really survived. I did learn you cannot make these mistakes in Masters
0........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
31st......End of season standings
45 million. Current balance (made -61M last season) Forced to spend heaps, just to avoid paying those taxes
MY GOAL: I would like to spend 2 seasons here with my current driver, hopefully promoting back to the Masters next season. Because I was forced to spend up big, I do have the strongest car here, but I just don't know what this new driver of mine is like. I would like to score at least 10 points this season. If I can do that then I would give this season a success

R1 Baku City.…….…...21st.......5th 45CT Car was so badly mismatched that I thought no point in pushing too hard. Really stoked with this start...……………………….….117/122/116
R2 Sochi...………………..2nd....….1st 30CT Again still finding it hard to get a good car match. I was shocked to be 2nd on grid, but flabbergasted that I won this....….116/126/116
R3 Suzuka………………..2nd....….1st 30CT This was my best match of the season but I am still very surprised that I got the win here. Time to put the brakes on..…….116/125/122
R4 Singapore...………..5th...….10th 5CT I was leading the group by 9 points before this race. A result I needed here as others have rapidly closed in on me........…..115/123/119
R5 Barcelona...……....12th.....38th 2CT RANDOM! So I was looking at maybe 10th, to drop out of this promo zone! A tyre puncture though put me out of the race..110/115/110
R6 Mugello……………...10th.....15th 3CT How hard is it to not promote, seems we have only a few going for promotion. I still sit 3rd, but only 1 point ahead of 5th...108/112/107
R7 Bucharest Ring....20th.....19th 20CT Well I seem to have lost touch with the front runners, so I think it is time to start increasing my CT risks again...………….…….99/08/102
R8 Bremgarten………..30th.....21st 40CT Well this didn't quite go as good as I hoped. I have lost all my motivation, now I am struggling to get that early form back.113/108/108
R9 Monte Carlo...…….11th...….8th 30CT It has always been a very hard track to overtake, so I am rather please that I was able to get a point here...……………………...111/108/106
R10 Imola………………...6th.......8th 20CT I could not really push here but I'm stoked to have a good qualifying. Back to back races in the points...……………………………..116/108/106
R11 Interlagos…………18th......15th 20CT Well I never expected to be blocked so badly here. I was blocked for 90% of the race, on a normal overtaking track...……...105/105/99
R12 Austin...…………….8th...…...4th 40CT Well I certainly didn't expect this. I jumped 5 in the opening lap and that has certainly allowed me to finish higher...………….111/111/100
R13 Montreal...………..8th...…...9th 20CT I'm still too close to that promo zone, so again a low CT. Probably the best result here as I just bide my time...………………....109/110/99
R14 Adelaide...………..8th.......13th 0CT I still think with normal risks my driver will get points. I cannot risk that here so I raced with zero risks...……………………..……..109/114/99
R15 Kyalami...………...5th...…..12th 0CT A very wet race but a good qualifying. Because of that, I race with 0CT risks, probably should have ran with at least 20CT....105/113/100
R16 Irungattukottai.. 3rd...…..12th 0CT A strong qualifying forced me to reduce the risks here, and in hindsight that was definitely a bad move...………………………...…..115/113/102
R17 Paul Ricard...…...5th...…….1st 60CT I had some wear left so pushed hard here, just wanted to finish as a high as possible. But we did have 28 smokers...………...114/111/101

SEASON 69:
Previous Season: Fantastic, promotion was secured with still 5 races to run. I promote to the Masters for the first time ever. Group winner was way too strong, but luckily he backed off the last 2 races and I was able to get a win for the season. Maybe deserved more wins, considering I was on the podium 10 times. But I'm ecstatic with this result
95........Championship points
1..........Pole positions
1..........Wins
10.........On the dias
2..........Fastest laps
2nd.......End of season standings
106 million. Current balance (made +19M last season)
MY GOAL: Survival!!! it will be a very tough season. I will push for the first race but must demotivate after that. I will have to wait until race 6 before I can start to push again. I just hope it is not too late to get those retention points needed. I may still forego this driver and just get a new driver here, really undecided so far, as to which way to go

R1 Nürburgring.…….…14th......14th 70CT Well not too bad for my first Master race EVER. Everyone else pushed, I am still unsure if my driver is good enough...……...102/101/99
R2 Fiorano………………..25th......21st 40CT Pushed too hard in R1, had nothing left here. Still expected a better result with 234 talent in a full wet race...………………......101/107/99
R3 Kaunas...……….…..11th.......14th.. 0CT I destroyed the engine in the first 2 races so could not push here. A pity, because the car match was very close...…..........101/111/98
R4 Zolder…………….…..20th.......13th 70CT I had a very good car match, so thought I would push as hard as I could. Just caught up in too many trains...…………….…...104/111/108
R5 Jyllands-Ringen…..12th........9th 60CT Well that was my final race for my driver and so nearly got my first Master point. Now to find an even better driver……......103/115/110
R6 Kyalami...…………...24th...…..9th 60CT NEW DRIVER!! Oh what a start, he can't qualify but boy, can he race. He should be able to get retention for me...…………....100/113/103
R7 Melbourne...………..26th......13th 60CT My car was not even close to any sort of match here, so not too unhappy about this result. 2 big driver mistakes as well....111/120/111
R8 Indianapolis.........29th...….15th 65CT Same problem, just starting too far back. Temperatures too high though, Conti tyres dominated this one...………………………..109/115/109
R9 Mexico City...……..26th...….20th 75CT Just got caught up in so many trains, but still got to 10th with 1 lap to go. But he had ran out fuel and had to pit...…...…....113/111/102
R10 Brasilia...………….31st...….20th 60CT Yeah I knew this would be bad, my worst car match of the season. Still though super impressed, he was able to pass 11.....115/112/113
R11 Sakhir………………..9th...….37th 70CT SLC!!!Just pushed way too high on my starting risk and crashed out in the first corner. A big lesson learned here...……………..114/108/111
R12 Fuji...……………….18th......11th 80CT Lowered starting risk and so much better. Just got caught up in too many trains despite being an easy to overtake track......114/113/110
R13 Yeongam………….15th......16th 60CT Really thought I had a good car match but my speed just wasn't there. Really starting to have doubts if I can stay here...…..112/111/108
R14 Sepang…………….31st...….29th 0CT My driver just doesn't like the wet so I just refused to push here and save my energy for the next race...………………………………..109/100/99
R15 Shanghai...………21st......13th 85CT I had got to 4th with 1 lap to go when I had to pit for extra fuel. Just not suppose to be in the Masters I think...………………....111/111/113
R16 Valencia...….…….21st......21st 65CT Not the best conditions. Very hot and then a bit of rain on and off. I am now finished, time to regroup down back in Pro...….117/111/115
R17 Oesterreichring...

SEASON 68:
Previous Season: Excellent, was able to re-sign my driver after race 5. Slowly improved from there, scoring 4 points in R11, another 4 points in R14, and then a powerful win in the final race of the season. I did spend a lot of money but had to really. Improving Staff and Facilities, and upgrading the car to a more competitive area. My best Pro season in 14 seasons!!
17........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
1..........Wins
1..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
10th.....End of season standings
87 million. Current balance (loss -53M last season)
MY GOAL: PROMOTION!! I have no choice, I will lose this driver after R5 next season if I don't. I have never in 55 seasons in this game, made it to the Masters. I feel though this could be my best chance. No way do I expect to win this group but if I can finish 3rd with 80 points, that should be enough to promote

R1 Laguna Seca…….…6th.....4th 40CT I just got pipped for the podium. Got blocked early for 20 laps so without that happening, would have scored podium...………....105/101/97
R2 Rafaela Oval...…….7th.....3rd 60CT Great race to be involved in, a lot of slipstreaming and positions moving constantly. Just pipped for 2nd but I'm still building....105/107/97
R3 Adelaide...…………..5th.....2nd 50CT Full wet race but just one a bit better today. Improving with every race, early days but feeling confident I can promote...……...104/105/96
R4 Suzuka………………17th.....5th 40CT Just doing only what I need to do to guarantee my promotion. I sit in 2nd and have increased my lead back to 4th to 7 points.103/105/103
R5 Baku City...………19th....12th 40CT Very disappointing! Car didn't suit the track but didn't expect such a bad result. Still increased gap back to 4th though..….……..103/104/102
R6 Istanbul...…………11th.....2nd 50CT Had to increase the risks and get this promo back on track. Only beaten by 4.5s. I sit in 2nd, 13 points ahead of 4th..…………...103/103/108
R7 Yas Marina...………2nd.....5th 40CT Thought about the whiting start but didn't do it. Just the 3 wet laps if I had have gone the whiting, I would have snared 2nd....102/102/106
R8 Grobnik…….......…4th......2nd 40CT Full wet race! Despite my driver having 234 in talent, my lap times were only 5th best. So I feel I got lucky here...………………...102/107/106
R9 Zandvoort......…..4th...….2nd 40CT Win was not too far away. Just got blocked heavily for the first 20 laps, but promo has never looked better...……………………...…..99/102/104
R10 Slovakiaring......4th......5th 40CT I should have finished 2nd but under fuelled by 1 litre in my final stint. Not too much damage done though to promoting....….…..98/105/104
R11 Bremgarten.......5th......3rd 40CT Racing consistently now but was sitting in 2nd for most of the race. Finally succumbing in the final lap, to drop to 3rd...…………….92/101/98
R12 Brands Hatch.....6th......7th 40CT Well not as strong as I expected, although in the end, I was only 15 seconds of that podium. Looking at the big picture here.....100/101/97
R13 Poznan..............2nd.....2nd 40CT Probably my best match with track PHA this season and it certainly showed. Just no match though against group leader...…….….92/100/93
R14 Serres..............14th.....9th 40CT Set up was a little out, but I didn't think by this much. Lap times were rarely inside the top 15. Just another BAD race...…………….92/98/92
R15 Ahvenisto..........2nd.....2nd 40CT Spent 10M here to get the best set up possible and I think it showed. Group leader just so dominate and I can't get that win......91/99/98
R16 New Delhi..........5th......3rd 40CT I thought maybe a good chance to win here after reading about group leader, pulling back. But no, others seem to push here....91/100/97
R17 Montreal............1st......1st 40CT Best way to leave the Pros. Pole, Win and the Fastest Lap. I finished 2nd in the group and will go to Master for my first time....103/102/100

SEASON 67:
Previous Season: The perfect season, everything I planned came to fruition. I scored 106 points, plus was able to demotivate the last 2 races here. Unfortunately maybe, I could not take home the Championship, but that was never my goal here. I wanted to promote to Pro with as much money as possible. And that I did
106......Championship points
6..........Pole positions
3..........Wins
10........On the dias
4..........Fastest laps
2nd......End of season standings
126 million. Current balance (made +44M last season)
MY GOAL: RETENTION!!!This could be tough. I need to demotivate for the first 6 races so I will not be able to start pushing until race 7. Double sign up should be complete by then! But that will only leave me the back half of the season to try and get those retention points.

R1 Kyalami...……………….13th.....36th 0CT DEMOTIVATION Could not be more happier with this result. Was able to lose 56 motivation points here...……………………….…....86/90/83
R2 Singapore...…………...17th.....37th 0CT DEMOTIVATION Again a terrific result, starting on the wrong tyres plus an extra stop. Lost 40 motivation points here....……..85/89/83
R3 Austin...…………………...7th.....37th 0CT DEMOTIVATION Tried 4 stops but had to fuel again, 2 laps from home. Still target reached, 35 motivation points lost....……….85/88/82
R4 Buenos Aires...……….10th.....36th 0CT DEMOTIVATION Well I'm getting very consistent. Able to lose 41 motivation points here and just 1 more bad race to go...…..84/89/81
R5 Mexico City...………...16th.....39th 0CT DEMOTIVATION Finally after 7 races of demotivating, I can start racing again. It just feels like this has gone forever...…….…..77/87/78
R6 Shanghai...…………….32nd....25th 40CT First push of the season and a very poor result here. I need to start improving this car quickly to be truly competitive....…….83/88/81
R7 Jerez...…………………….6th.....15th 40CT A decent result but don't think I was on the best strategy. Angry though that I still lost another 12 motivation points here....83/96/83
R8 Mugello………………….26th.....15th 55CT Biggest push of the season, but once again more frustration. Motivation gain, a big fat zero, at least it didn't go backwards...93/96/90
R9 Interlagos……………..29th...….9th 60CT I got to 4th with 8 laps to go, when a big DE, dropped me out of the points. A good race but yet I only gain 2 motivation?...101/105/94
R10 Sepang……………….17th...…19th 50CT Downgraded the engine because I still had so much wear on it. I never expected though to lose 31 motivations points...……..94/101/90
R11 Zolder…………………..8th...…..5th 50CT Well I had to spend 29M to improve the car but it seems well worth it. Nearly got to 2nd but lost energy last 3 laps...………….110/105/98
R12 Irungattukottai……20th.....14th 45CT Lowered my CT and yet still ran out of energy, 5 laps from home. Also lost another 25 motivation points...……………………….…..108/99/96
R13 Yas Marina...………..9th...…13th 30CT Really not too bad considering the low risks, but I'm gutted that had to pit on the last lap. Would have finished 7th...………..108/102/104
R14 Bucharest Ring......4th.......5th 45CT Tricky conditions with the weather but I did what the weather did and got a great result. Gained 38 motivation points...…...102/100/99
R15 Portimao.............21st.....11th 35CT Just not to sure I had chosen the best strategy here. Also got badly blocked on an easy to overtake track...………………………..102/107/99
R16 Brno...................13th.....11th 0CT Just so I can race in the last race without smoking, I opted for no CT here. Could not be more happier with the result...……..101/104/98
R17 Avus....................5th...…..1st 30CT Saving that wear in the previous race has rewarded me largely here. Only 9 of us finished the race not smoking...……………...107/102/98

SEASON 66:
Previous Season: Everything worked out very well. I had to demotivate for the first 5 races, that allowed me to get the double sign up for my driver. From there he just got better with every race, in the end I had to sabotage a few strategies because he was getting too close to promoting. I finished 5th in the standings, just 1 point outside that promotion zone.
41........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
2..........Wins
3..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
5th.....End of season standings
82 million. Current balance (loss -24M last season)
MY GOAL: PROMOTION!!! I need at least 70 points, that should be enough for promotion. Hopefully I get that by race 15 and then I can start to demotivate early for S67. I reckon I should get close to winning this championship but I wont be working too hard to get there. I would be very happy to just finish 2nd and promote to the Pros

R1 Estoril...............…3rd...….2nd 30CT Promo season and could not be happier. Only beaten here by a manager who had this as his driver's favoutite track.....…….....….96/89/85
R2 Oesterreichring…..2nd...….4th 30CT Had a very good fight with 4 others for the lead but unexpected rain mid race, cost me any chance of finishing on the podium....95/88/84
R3 Jyllands-Ringen…..2nd......1st 40CT Had to lower brakes so pushed a little harder here. Absolutely stoked to snare the win and increase my lead in this group...……...94/85/83
R4 Imola…………………..1st...…..1st 30CT I have now reached full motivation and he really has some speed now. Also claimed the fastest lap. Ten points clear of 2nd...…...96/88/92
R5 Spa...……………….….1st.......5th 20CT Not the result I wanted but smaller CT, higher worn car parts, and a smoking car for those final 5 laps. I still lead the group...…..94/86/90
R6 Grobnik……………….2nd...….2nd 30CT Another solid race and just doing enough to the lead the group although I do have a new rival getting closer......………………………..96/91/89
R7 Monza...……………..3rd...…..2nd 30CT I continue to downgrade the car but yet I can still race strongly. I have regained the group lead after my rival finished 4th......….84/88/80
R8 Ahvenisto…………...1st...…..1st 30CT I continue to downgrade the car but yet I can still race strongly. I have regained the group lead after my rival finished 4th......….84/87/78
R9 Magny Cours……...4th...…..4th 0CT I opted for just the 1 stop but to get the tryes to go the distance, I had to race with 0CT. Clearly the wrong strategy...………………..83/87/77
R10 Brands Hatch..….1st.....…2nd 30CT Wet race and my driver has very good talent but I know there is 1 better here. Once again I finished 2nd to that person..………….80/83/75
R11 Singapore...……..3rd...…..2nd 30CT Dry, wet and then dry again. My car sits only 21st best in this group, so I am stoked to still make the podium...………………………...80/83/74
R12 Indianapolis...…..3rd....….4th 30CT Should have finished 2nd but we had more dry laps then expected and I was forced to pit 8 laps from home for more fuel...……..80/88/75
R13 Brasilia...…………..2nd...….3rd 30CT RANDOM. I had 99% control of this race but a tyre puncture on the very last lap has cost me the win and booted out of the cup..90/90/88
R14 New Delhi...……..2nd...…..4th 30CT Thought maybe a win but got blocked the whole race but then made a mistake on the last lap again. Dropping from 2nd to 4th...89/87/87
R15 Sochi...……………..2nd...….3rd 30CT Others are racing better now and I am now in cruise mode. Top 2 guaranteed and just getting things ready for the Pros...…………..88/88/86
R16 Yeongam…………..1st...….28th 0CT DEMOTIVATION, worked out well, lost 49 motivation points...……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….88/92/85
R17 Suzuka………….…..1st...….26th 0CT DEMOTIVATION, again worked out well, lost another 44 motivation points...……………………………………………………………………………………...87/91/84

SEASON 65:
Previous Season: Everything worked out well. I was able to secure a cheap driver (3rd cheapest in this group), he has plenty of talent and is only 24 years old. A little bit older then I would like but that just means 1 less season amongst the Amateurs. He certainly does show great potential and I think he will be with me for many seasons.
25........Championship points
2..........Pole positions
0..........Wins

7th.....End of season standings
106 million. Current balance (made +22M last season)
MY GOAL: PROMOTION!!! Control driver's OA to stay at 110 after race 5, then get the double sign up complete. Push, push, push from there, build up my driver's motivation and the car level later in the season, for a fight for promotion in S66. I hope to score 25 points and finish inside the top 8 this season.

R1 Montreal..................30th......24th 0 CT DEMOTIVATING! Ran with the best strategy and plus the car level is low. Good result, I lost 12 motivation points................79/75/74
R2 Indianapolis Oval......17th......22nd 0 CT DEMOTIVATING! Best strategy but 0 risks. I knew the car would smoke, and it did, 24 laps from home. Lost 21 moti points.78/74/73
R3 Mexico City..............17th......29th 0 CT DEMOTIVATING! Terrible strategy, plus the rain didn't help. Lost too much motivation here but now must make that up.......77/73/72
R4 Kyalami...................20th......30th 0 CT DEMOTIVATING I hate racing like this but it is a must in the game nowadays. Just one more very boring race to go.............77/75/72
R5 Paul Ricard............….7th...…..26th 0 CT DEMOTIVATING. Multiple stops in this one but my target has been met. I have my driver for the next 2 seasons...……………...77/75/75
R6 Valencia..................13th...….14th 30CT Driver is signed up for the next 2 season and time to push. Just couldn't do that here, caught up in too many trains...………..75/77/74
R7 A1 Ring...................15th......17th 40CT Damn!!! Just pushed too hard and pitted on the final lap, falling from 6th to 17th. Must get this motivation up...………………...81/78/74
R8 Bremgarten...............6th......11th 40CT I expected some rain here and in the end that didn't come. I fell from 7th to 12th, having to pit for more fuel...…………………..80/79/75
R9 Silverstone...............15th...…..5th 40CT I feel I was robbed of a win here. I was leading with 8 laps to go when the gearbox let go. Damn frustrating result...………….86/79/81
R10 Anderstorp..............3rd...…..2nd 30CT I continue my rapid improvement, although a full wet race here helped. The whole race I sat in the top 2...………………………...85/83/81
R11 Serres................…..2nd...…..1st 30CT Driver is really hitting his straps and just must make sure, he doesn't do too much this season. Promotion next season!......84/84/81
R12 Istanbul..................7th...…..4th 20CT I lowered the risks yet still doing better then expected. Just must make sure don't do too good and get promoted...…………...84/83/84
R13 Hockenheim...........10th...…..8th 0CT Absolutely no risks and the perfect result. That's all I need is those low end points, just to keep those sponsors happy...……...80/80/78
R14 Yeongam................2nd......16th 0CT I tried to do the 1 extra stop at the end but because of the weather, that turned into 2. Just trying to avoid those points...…..82/81/80
R15 Hungaroring............3rd...…..6th 0CT Again the weather played havoc here. I tried to finish 9th but really hard to judge when you throw a bit of rain into the mix....88/90/84
R16 Sakhir....................4th...….25th 0CT The weather again caused me to misjudge the pit stops. Did way too many with 7 and that has hurt my motivation...…………...88/88/83
R17 Irungattukottai........4th...…...1st 0CT So many smokers here. I did upgrade the car but ran with 0 risks. Still very easy win, by just over 30 seconds...…………………...97/90/86

SEASON 64:
Previous Season: Well that was a flop! it was suppose to be my promo season but it was clear by mid season, the top 3 were way too strong. I changed tactics mid season to make it a cash earning season and that worked out well. So disappointing I could not promote but still was able to turn it around to get a decent result!

MY GOAL: PROMOTION!!! Tough to call yet as I don't have my driver yet. But by race 5 I will have my driver. I am looking at a young and cheap driver. I hope to have him here in this group for 4 seasons and hopefully take him to the Masters with me. I doubt I will get any points after race 4 but I will have more than enough to avoid that relegation.

R1 Sakhir....................2nd......2nd 30CT My lap times were outside the top 3 for most of the race, but just some very handy blocking gained me this podium..............86/82/85
R2 Yas Marina..............1st.......3rd 35CT Pole it has been over 4 seasons since my last one. Car didn't suit the though and really got lucky with a podium....................85/82/84
R3 Shanghai................2nd......3rd 25CT Whiting start really helped with just 3 wet laps at the start. Unfortunately badly worn engine, meant I couldn't push too hard..84/81/83
R4 Sepang...................1st......5th 30CT Pole for my final race for my driver. I haven't trained for a long time and others have caught me now...................................84/86/83
R5 Fuji......................33rd.....35th 20CT Hired a BAD driver to get to a better window for contract renewal. He was only here for the 1 race but also downgraded car...78/76/74
R6 Sochi....................36th.....33rd OCT NEW DRIVER! Three season plan in this group, then Pro and hopefully Master with this driver. 0CT here because of worn parts.77/73/73
R7 Baku City..............31st.....26th 20CT It has been awhile since I had a car this low, driver is 3rd worst in my group but I am very pleased to get this result so soon...70/71/69
R8 Adelaide...............27th.....25th 10CT I lowered the car a bit more before this race. The car is only 34th best, so to get these results so early, I could not be happier.66/67/62
R9 Magny Cours.........36th.....23rd 15CT Last on the grid but I was just doing the 1 stop. My driver had no trouble passing those on multiple stops. So far so good!......70/71/74
R10 Grobnik..............34th.....20th 30CT Low wear parts going into the race so hence higher risks. Ecstatic though with his improvement after every race....................71/75/74
R11 Barcelona...........33rd.....20th 30CT Just about a carbon copy of the race above. That is all I need to be doing at this stage of my build. Sponsors still happy!.........76/75/73
R12 Slovakiaring........13th......8th 30CT Full wet race, my driver just loves the wet and I knew I would get a good result. But never expected points!!!.........................75/74/72
R13 Brands Hatch.......28th.....21st 0CT Driver improving too quickly so must slow it all down so I can get the double sign-up done after race 5 next season..................75/77/72
R14 Mugello...............15th.....16th 0CT Tried some demotivating here but he only lost 5 motivation points. Looks like I may need to ditch a few races..........................79/77/72
R15 Monte Carlo.........30th.....23rd 0CT OK I need to start taking this demotivation seriously. I made 8 motivation points here, I need to lose 150 before S65, R6..........78/77/76
R16 Austin...................8th....25th 0CT OK a lesson learned today. Do not replace any car parts if you want to lose motivation. I only loss the 5 points here..................77/76/75
R17 Rafaela Oval........29th....25th 0CT Demotivating. OK a dry track but I raced with wet tyres the whole distance. It seemed to work, lost 24 motivation points............81/76/75

SEASON 63:
Previous Season: I had to demotivate for the first 4 races so I could resign my driver. Once that was done, I was able to finish in the points in 9 of the next 13 races, but also finished 9th twice. In an expensive season, I made a small profit. I was also able to continually improve my driver without using any spa training.

MY GOAL: PROMOTION!!! I have no choice, I will lose my driver early next season unless I can reach Pro and extend his contract. It doesn't look like I am the strongest here and it appears we have 4 that I know are going for it. I will strive for 2nd but I feel at the moment, I am 3rd best here.

R1 Laguna Seca.............3rd.......6th 30CT Promo Season!!!! I was expecting so much more but forgot how hard everyone starts the season. We shall see what happens81/87/89
R2 Buenos Aires.............5th.......6th 20CT Well it aint getting much better. Quickly realising that my driver just aint good enough for promotion..................................80/86/88
R3 Mexico City...............6th.......7th 30CT Well only 3 races in and I will pull back from promotion. I will not waste my money on fighting for promotion.......................85/84/87
R4 Brasilia.....................5th.......4th 30CT My car has never been stronger thanks to recent testing. Top 3 are still just too strong, why waste money on what could be..94/85/89
R5 Silverstone...............5th.......7th 30CT Tough conditions with wet to dry race and I should have finished 5th but messed up my fuel load in the second stint.............94/89/88
R6 Zandvoort................6th.......7th 30CT Random!! I reckon I could have hung onto a podium here. 11 laps, electronics let go, at the end of the race that was at 88%.92/89/86
R7 A1 - Ring.................6th.......7th 30CT Dry to wet to dry. Tough conditions and my driver was very good in the wet but just not enough wet laps for my liking..........92/93/86
R8 Kaunas....................6th.......4th 40CT Increased the risks because the parts allowed me to do so. But also a lot of the top runners, smoked this one out.................96/90/87
R9 Serres.....................3rd.......8th 30CT Lottery race and I pitted 1 lap before the rain stopped. This has made struggle for points when I could have finished 4th........91/90/81
R10 Monza....................5th.......3rd 30CT Only 5 managers went with my 1 stop strategy and I reckon that has allowed me secure my first podium in 61 races.............98/91/85
R11 Proznan.................5th.......2nd 30CT Lottery race once again and I did get very lucky when the rain stopped and the manager who was 2nd ran out of energy.......96/90/90
R12 Portimao................3rd.......2nd 30CT I have just maintained my steady pace and I am surprised how close I am to promotion. 15 points behind 3rd......................94/87/87
R13 Jyllands-Ringen.......4th.......5th 40CT Maybe too high with the CT risk with 7 wobbly tyres proving very costly and maybe a 4th place finish...................................92/86/86
R14 Sepang...................4th.......7th 30CT Others are catching up to me now I have stopped training. I'm just expecting those low end points in our remaining races......92/86/90
R15 Melbourne...............4th.....17th 30CT RANDOM. Only 20 laps into a 58 lap race my brakes let go way too early. They should have gone the distance easily.............90/85/89
R16 Yeongam.................4th......1st 40CT Drivers favourite track so I increased risks and threw in all my boost laps. Was only just enough in the end over group leader..88/84/87
R17 New Delhi...............2nd......1st 30CT Plenty of car wear left so I can continue to push. With so many smoking, a fairly easy win in the end. Back to back wins..........87/83/86

SEASON 62:
Previous Season: I recruited that driver just before race 5 and he has built up nicely during the season. So fats that he was able to collect 4 points in the last 3 races and an easy retention for me. A best finish of 7th, which I did twice. Also increased by bank balance by 11M
4..........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins

19th.....End of season standings

MY GOAL: This is going to be a very expensive season and I will be happy just to break even with the finances. I will have to race with a lower level car than I would like to, but I guess everyone is in the same boat there. I predicted I would finish maybe 10th with 16 points

R1 Bucharest..................21st.....18th 0CT I need to demotivate but the temptation was too strong here. I ran with the perfect strategy and pleased with the result.....86/89/86
R2 Bremgarten...............30th.....28th 0CT Demotivating!!!! Very poor qualifying, multiple stops and the wrong compound tyres worked out well................................85/88/84
R3 Imola........................24th.....29th 0CT Demotivating!!!!Very poor qualifying, multiple stops and the wrong compound tyres worked out well.................................83/87/83
R4 Nurburgring...............31st.....15th 0CT Demotivating!!!!A better result then expected but mission accomplished. I extended his contract and now to go racing........82/84/82
R5 Oesterreichring...........21st......7th 30CT My first push for the season and I'm ecstatic about this result. Car is only 21st best in this group so great result................81/79/79
R6 Indianapolis.................6th......7th 30CT Drivers favourite track! Was hoping for better got badly blocked for 2/3rds of the race. Full wet race helped as well!..........79/78/78
R7 Brasilia......................17th.....17th 30CT Had to downgrade the engine here, plus the brakes let go 5 laps from home, costing me 4 positions................................72/76/75
R8 Rafaela......................25th.....12th 30CT Trying to keep the finances in check. Cannot improve the car too much because the money will run out before the end......73/75/71
R9 Kyalami......................7th.......6th 40CT Full wet race and I increased the risks slightly here pushing for podium. Unfortunate rain stopped after only 15 laps...........77/83/76
R10 Fuji..........................9th.......8th 30CT I didn't expect points here, I thought at best maybe a 10th so a good surprise and a nice jump in my drivers motivation.....76/82/76
R11 Shanghai.................14th......9th 40CT I increased the risks slightly here with the chance of snaring some points, and only just missed out...................................75/78/75
R12 Irungattukottai.........10th......6th 30CT A mainly wet race and that has certainly helped my performance. A big jump with drivers motivation as well......................78/88/81
R13 Anderstorp...............16th......8th 30CT Very Hard track to overtake so I wasn't expecting points. Snared a point on the second last lap........................................78/87/80
R14 Fiorano....................15th......9th 20CT Too much testing just before the race, hence I had to lower my risk. Still very pleased with my run though........................76/86/77
R15 Paul Ricard...............12th......7th 30CT Everything building up nicely towards promo next season. Motivation continues to climb, as does the stamina....................76/85/79
R16 Zolder......................13th......8th 30CT I just continue to plod along, being careful not to spend too much money. My best result for the season............................83/87/79
R17 Brno........................10th......4th 20CT I could not push harder then this because of some badly worn parts. But again, my best result for the season....................81/87/84

SEASON 61:
Previous Season: Relegation! I failed miserably at survival here. I recruited a new driver before race 4 and quickly signed him up for 17 races. I soon found out, he was worst than the driver I had in the Amateurs and it would have been too costly to break his contract. My season was doomed from there and I could only salvage a best finish of only 12th

0..........Pole positions

MY GOAL: Well yet again another charge towards the Masters. I will recruit a new driver before race 5 and will spend the next 3 seasons here as I build him up as well as my finances. I doubt I will get any points this season but maybe a best result of 11th, this should be enough to return here next season.

R1 Sepang...................29th......24th 20CT Well I thought I needed a new driver and this result has definitely proven that. I will have a new driver before race 5...........90/90/91
R2 Sakhir....................22nd......13th 20CT Just about a full wet race. I knew my driver just loves the wet and hence the good result. She is just hopeless in the dry!.....95/95/92
R3 Suzuka...................28th......30th 30CT RANDOM! As if I am not already struggling the GPRO gods decide to give me a tyre puncture on lap 16...............................85/91/84
R4 Mugello..................26th......23rd 20CT Downgraded the car a lot here and it shows. I still have 1 race left for this driver, I should have a new driver before then......82/89/83
R5 Avus......................28th......30th 20CT NEW DRIVER!!!! Well it's clear he has a long way to go but I'm here for the long haul........................................................84/83/78
R6 Portimao................31st......28th 20CT Underfuelled here and pitted again 4 laps from home. Disappointing but really irrelevant here as I'm only building.................78/82/73
R7 Austin....................28th......26th 20CT Well considering I just keep downgrading the car, not too bad a result. So far this season no complaints from my sponsors....69/77/71
R8 Montreal.................29th.....26th 20CT Just a repeat of the previous race. He is slowly building but the rest of this season will be very quiet....................................68/75/69
R9 Mexico...................30th......21st 20CT Easily my drivers best race so far. He is till growing and everything is building up nice around him.......................................66/66/63
R10 Jerex...................30th......24th 20CT I think I could have finished higher but just got caught up in too many trains. Not good on a hard overtaking track................69/64/63
R11 Istanbul...............27th......22nd 20CT Right on the cusp of relegation now. I like my driver's progress but feel I will have to increase my risk to ensure retention.....69/67/69
R12 Monte Carlo..........21st.......21st 30CT RANDOM! Would have been my best result of the season, probably 15th. But copped the random on lap 7...........................70/74/74
R13 Interlagos.............26th......21st 20CT Would have finished 18th if not for a smoking car. Smoked the last 9 laps as I'm trying to maximise my wear.......................73/75/73
R14 Adelaide...............10th......10th 40CT My driver just loves the wet and with this being wet the whole race, he just revelled in it....................................................84/79/85
R15 Yeongam..............20th........7th 40CT Driver's favourite track and it showed! He has really improved quickly and I'm really looking forward to next season..............85/90/89
R16 Sochi...................22nd........7th 0CT Very wet race but a dry start. I went with the whiting start and it certainly paid off for me here.............................................84/91/88
R17 Yas Marina............20th.......9th 15CT I passed 3 cars on that final lap but not quite enough to get into the points. Still another good display though.......................82/90/86


SEASON 60:
Previous Season: Promotion! Well I achieved my main objective. I didn't win the group but finished a very respectable 2nd and clinched promotion with still 2 races to go. Did not make much money but was able to build on my Staff and Facilities. Also able to snare 3 wins for the season, so all up, a very successive season.

4..........Pole positions

MY GOAL: Survival! I was hoping to carry my driver through but I see now he is just not strong enough. Also I did not improve my car enough, late last season so I will also struggle there. I must recruit a strong driver before race 4 and see if I can at least survive this season, while I build my car up. This could be close!

R1 Hungaroring.............26th......18th 50CT Welcome to Pro! Blocked badly the whole race but really at best maybe 16th. Time to find a new driver and quick.............90/90/91
R2 Kaunas....................12th......19th 30CT He was not even close with this one. Time to find me a new driver I think.....................................................................89/89/90
R3 Jyllands-Ringen........24th......28th 30CT Terrible :) I just tried get a new driver before this race but got out bidded. Now I am driverless.......................................90/88/87
R4 Magny Cours............18th......13th 40CT NEW DRIVER. A very wet race and caught up in many trains. Really hard to judge how good he is, but shows promise......107/96/97
R5 Imola......................12th......21st 50CT My strongest car this season and yet probably my worst result. I am really starting to doubt if I can survive here...........109/106/100
R6 Brands Hatch...........26th......29th 50CT RANDOM. I got to 15th but a tyre puncture dashed any hopes of taking home a decent result.......................................101/98/102
R7 Estoril.....................23rd......14th 20CT Well my lowest risk all season and yet probably my best race of the season. Maybe there is some hope still out there.....105/104/100
R8 Slovakiaring............23rd.......21st 30CT A very average race here, only getting as high as 18th. Money keeps dwindling down as well........................................99/101/98
R9 Spa........................23rd.......25th 30CT RANDOM. Driver was unhappy with his helmet and he pitted for a replacement. The season from hell continues............109/102/99
R10 Ahvenisto..............26th.......26th 40CT A clumsy typo error has incorrectly filled my car and an extra pit stop was forced only 2 laps from home.......................104/103/92
R11 Monza...................24th......28th 30CT I'm getting worried now, my driver is just not improving fast enough. I doubt I will be able to avoid relegation...............108/100/90
R12 Brasilia..................27th......21st 30CT I really messed up this one with the totally wrong strategy but still was able to bring home a fair result.........................106/101/91
R13 Buenos Aires..........26th......17th 30CT Probably my best run of the season. Now I'm undecided, do I push even harder and try and get those retention points?..106/100/97
R14 Fuji.......................28th......23rd 30CT OK it is clear I will not score any points this season but I have 7 managers above that are in the red.............................105/96/101
R15 Singapore..............15th......14th 20CT As others run out of money I get closer to those points. Maybe there is a slim chance yet of saving the season............... 103/92/99
R16 New Delhi..............12th......12th 20CT Improving with every race but I have prepared myself for relegation. I need to regroup and come back stronger...............98/92/95
R17 Baku City...............23rd......26th 0CT I knew I would smoke but I didn.t expect to start on lap 9. Goodbye Pros and I will return, bigger and stronger..................96/91/94

SEASON 59:
Previous Season: It was all about building everything up for promotion in S59. I have done that nicely and I am now positioned to promote. I predicted I would finish 6th, in the end though I finished 7th. Just disappointing I could not pinch some of those podiums

MY GOAL: Promote!!! I will try and win the group but I wont put up a big fight if I need to. At worst, I should finish no lower than 3rd

R1 Monte Carlo................3rd......2nd 30CT Excellent!! I really couldn't do not much better here and was only beaten by another managers favourite track by .257s......73/71/72
R2 Hockenheim...............3rd......10th 0CT Two races and 2 testing sessions done but this did not allow me to race with any risk. Time to build the car up....................73/70/72
R3 Zolder.......................2nd......4th 40CT A terrible start, losing 5 places in that opening lap and then just caught up in the train. Maybe need to start stronger here...76/77/78
R4 Bremgarten................5th......2nd 40CT With my ever improving car and driver, I have been able to reach the podium. I will continue to upgrade the car................76/85/79
R5 Montreal....................2nd......2nd 40CT One of the worst starts in a long time, losing 6 spots after that first lap. From there is was all about catch up.....................84/87/88
R6 Rafaela......................3rd.......4th 40CT Downgraded a lot of parts, just so I can finish this race. That has probably cost me a podium but I still sit 3rd in the group..75/83/81
R7 Kyalami.....................1st.......1st 40CT Finally my first win in over 6 seasons. A strong start for a change, able to hang onto pole and that allowed me to pull away..84/88/90
R8 Sepang......................2nd......1st 40CT Well I never expected a win here but some surprise rain at the start, helped me a lot. Plus the leader ran out of energy.......84/88/93
R9 Baku.........................2nd......2nd 20CT Because of the strategy I could not push too hard but I got the result I expected. Only 3 points behind the group leader......83/88/93
R10 Irungattukottai.........2nd.....30th 30CT A win was a certainty but a bloody tyre puncture on lap 11 has put me out of the race.....................................................79/84/88
R11 Yeongam.................3rd.......3rd 40CT Nothing really to get too excited here. Terrible pit stops has cost me 2nd place, time to increase that pit training centre.......85/82/86
R12 Serres.....................2nd.......4th 30CT A typo error means I over fuelled the first stint, causing me to drive with 9 wobbly laps. That has robbed me of a podium....83/82/85
R13 A1-Ring...................2nd.......3rd 30CT Well I felt I didn't do too much wrong here but just pipped at the post, beaten by only 0.5 of a second...............................82/81/84
R14 Valencia...................1st.......1st 40CT Well I never expected a win here, I thought just fastest lap. But also took home only my second pole this season.................88/88/87
R15 Silverstone...............2nd......2nd 20CT Promotion is secured so time to demotivate. I have 4 races to try and lose 180 in motivation.............................................91/91/91
R16 Grobnik....................1st......18th 0CT Was going to demotivate but changed my mind. In any case a RANDOM has cost me finishing any higher.............................91/90/90
R17 Poznan.....................1st.......2nd 0CT Well not too bad consider zero risk. Well I reckon I am ready for the Pros. Second promote to go through!!!!!!.....................91/91/92

SEASON 58:
Previous Season: Chrissy my female driver lost 16 kilos and was really coming home well late last season. I didn't expect any points but scored 11, including a podium in the last race. Retention easily secured but I thought I would have made more money.

MY GOAL: Double resign before R4 and just continue to build the car package and driver. I hope to score at least 40 points and finish around 6th. This could be a bit of a task considering I am forced to demotivate, probably the first 2 races of this season.

R1 Melbourne.......................20th.....19th 20CT Took a big risk here to try the 1 stopper but fell a lap short in each stint. Need to drop motivation anyway before R4.....71/77/67
R2 Indianapolis.....................2nd......26th 0CT Demotivation race, unfortunately so many smoked here and I finished a lot higher then I wanted.................................71/76/67
R3 Mexico City......................9th......18th 0CT Demotivation race, again I misread the strength of my driver. He just doesn't know how to run a bad race.....................77/76/73
R4 Yeongam.........................6th......17th 0CT Demotivation race. A full wet race and I was a bit concerned early but 5 pit stops did the job. Double re-sign is done.......81/75/73
R5 Shanghai.........................7th......7th 60CT First big push for awhile. Just thought it was a 55 lap race and had to pit again 2 laps from home. Cost me 4 places....... 84/83/81
R6 Singapore........................8th......7th 30CT Even with the CT slashed he still was able to race hard. Motivation up to 132 now but still room for improvement............83/82/80
R7 Sakhir.............................8th......8th 30CT A little disappointing but the temperatures and the track, didn't really suit the driver. Only up 3 in motivation.................83/81/81
R8 Fuji.................................5th.....12th 30CT Should have finished 5th but I stuffed up my fuel and was 1 lap short for each stint. Pitting again 3 laps from the end.....74/85/75
R9 Oesterreichring.................9th......4th 40CT Got to within 1 second of 2nd but forgot to use my boost laps. This result should have been so much better...................82/86/81
R10 Estoril...........................15th.....5th 40CT Getting some good results now but finances are already dwindling down. Time to race conservatively for awhile..............80/83/80
R11 Sochi..............................5th.....4th 40CT Full wet race and my driver just loves the wet, so really no big surprises here, Although I did want that podium!.............75/77/79
R12 Istanbul..........................9th.....5th 30CT Another solid race but I felt I should have got 4th. I was blocked for the whole race, stuck behind 1 manager.................75/76/78
R13 Monza............................6th.....4th 30CT Tried whiting start but 6 dry laps did not help. Still came home strongly in virtually a full wet race................................. 76/75/73
R14 Bremgarten.....................6th.....7th 20CT Yet again another lottery race and the rain just didn't fall at the right times for me. Four stops this race..........................76/74/75
R15 Barcelona........................9th.....5th 20CT Considering the fairly low CT risk, I could not be more happier with my result here. Bring on next season already............75/74/74
R16 Anderstorp......................8th.....6th 30CT Whiting start and that again proved beneficial. Stuffed up my fuel though and had to pit 5 laps from home......................75/73/73
R17 Brno...............................7th.....5th 0CT I expected to smoke the last 20 laps but that didn't happen until 9 laps from home. Hence the good result.......................74/71/73

SEASON 57:
Previous Season: I signed my driver after race 3 and my old driver had 7 points by that stage. I knew that was more then enough for retention so I got myself a very young, inexperienced driver but he does show great potential. He is also very cheap and I was able to add more than 25M back into my account.
7..........Championship points

MY GOAL: Continue to build my driver and overall package. She is way too big after some excessive eating during xmas but I have sent her to boot camp this season so after this season her weight should be good. I doubt I will get any points this season, I just need one good finish, maybe a 13th to guarantee my return.

R1 Baku City...................20th.......19th 0CT Could not be more then happy with the result. Still a long way to go for my build and to be inside top 20!!!.......................67/54/55
R2 Imola.........................18th.......21st 0CT A little disappointed with this result but I guess my package just didn't suit the track.....................................................67/54/55
R3 Zandvoort...................17th......23rd 0CT Probably should have finished 18th but the fuel per stint was too short, forcing an extra pit stop 3 laps from home............66/54/54
R4 A1ring........................24th......31st 0CT Disappointing run, just really lacked any pace. I knew my car would smoke at the end but not for so many laps, 14 laps!....66/65/56
R5 Monte Carlo................25th......33rd 0CT I had downgraded a lot of parts but the killer was, I started smoking with still 36 laps to go.............................................61/55/55
R6 Nurburgring................22nd.....22nd 0CT Well after some poor results lately, I was never expecting to finish this high. Maybe the track suited the car!.....................61/56/56
R7 Fiorano.......................19th.....29th 0CT A terrible race as I really messed up my strategy. Suppose to be a 2 stopper but in the end I stopped 4 times....................62/58/60
R8 Laguna Seca...............19th......20th 0CT Probably would have been my best race for the season but was always going to smoke. 13 laps from home, smoke............67/58/60
R9 Buenos Aires..............19th......13th 40CT My first bit of risk this season and I am ecstatic with the result. Jumped 10 position in the groups standings.....................67/62/59
R10 Adelaide...................18th......23rd 0CT It was suppose to rain so I pushed the tyres to the limit, in the end it did not rain, forcing another late stop 4 laps short.....67/63/55
R11 New Delhi.................15th......15th 40CT Once again a bit of a push here and I could not be more then happy with the result. Should be in the points next season...60/65/56
R12 Suzuka.....................18th......18th 35CT Yeah just plodding along at the moment and really can't see too much happening for the rest of this season....................59/65/53
R13 Yas Marina................17th......15th 30CT Well I could not be more then happier with my progress. Just trying to eliminate those driver mistakes...........................59/66/60
R14 Istanbul....................25th......16th 0CT A surprise result here. I overdid with some testing and could not push for this race because my parts were too worn..........59/64/59
R15 Portimao...................20th.......7th 30CT I never expected to get points at all this season but it's promising for the future. 27 races with driver and first points........72/69/68
R16 Ahvenisto..................16th.......6th 20CT Once again I thought points were too far away but maybe, many managers have already decided to wind down...............72/73/68
R17 Paul Ricard................18th.......3rd 60CT My highest CT for the season but with plenty of wear left on the car why not. First podium in nearly 2 seasons.................72/77/68

SEASON 56:
Previous Season: Well what a total disaster! I had long term plans for my driver but he had to get through 2 seasons. I was always confident I could snare enough points in the last race to retain but this time, I just could not even get close to 8th. So my plans are squashed and I have been relegated to the Amateurs.
3..........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
27.........End of season standings
38 million. Current balance (made -17M last season)
MY GOAL: I will wait for the market to calm down and get myself a long term driver, probably for race 3. Build up the bank balance, improve my staff and facilities. But foremost is I must retain this first season. The search is on.

R1 Shanghai......................11th.......3rd 50CT WOW, I never expected this. Time to wind it down for the rest of the season. I will need a new driver by 5.....................99/98/95
R2 Fuji...............................2nd.....10th 50CT Well back to earth now. Poor planning though with 1 too many stops. One more push to go before I replace driver..........99/98/95
R3 Yas Marina.....................4th.......8th 50CT My last push so I thought I would try and snare the fastest lap but unfortunately only third best....................................98/97/95
R4 Yeongam.....................32nd.....32nd 0CT NEW DRIVER........................................................................................................................................................92/94/92
R5 Avus...........................34th......19th 0CT Whiting start jumped me many places but downgraded the car a lot here. The rest of the season will be very quiet............64/74/71
R6 Ahvenisto....................28th......31st 0CT Wet to dry race. I got as high as 24th in the wet but when the rain stopped, I really started going backwards....................57/69/63
R7 Poznan........................33rd......31st 0CT I have now lowered my car so low that he is lucky to pass anyone. Unfortunately that is all part of playing the game..........41/49/43
R8 Brands Hatch...............31st......32nd 0CT Again I even lowered my car a bit further but to be competitive next season, I may have to start increasing it soon...........39/48/42
R9 Bucharest Ring............32nd......28th 0CT Yay my best finish in 4 races but such a long race here and quite a few retired. Keep plodding along................................39/51/42
R10 Mugello.....................28th......22nd 0CT Whiting start again allowed me to finish higher then what I should have. Driver showing great potential though.................39/50/41
R11 Indianapolis...............33rd......28th 0CT For the first time with this driver I have started to slowly upgrade some car parts. I am still last though on that list............48/52/48
R12 Brasilia......................31st......28th 0CT Again a few more upgrades but still such a long way to go. It is rather boring but my turn will come.................................49/60/51
R13 Kyalami....................32nd......24th 40CT Drivers favourite track so I thought I would give it a push here and see what I get. Quite happy with where he finished.....51/61/52
R14 Singapore..................31st......21st 0CT Wet race again and he comes to the fore. I'm just loving these wet races.......................................................................54/64/57
R15 Irungattukottai...........25th......17th 0CT My best result this season for my driver. A bit deceiving though with quite a few not running or smoking...........................60/61/59
R16 Jerez.........................29th......26th 0CT RANDOM. 40 laps from home, your car had a puncture and could not finish the race. Would have finished around 17th.......58/53/54
R17 Slovakiaring...............25th.....11th 40CT Easily my best result ever for my new driver but that is expected with so many smokers................................................58/53/54

SEASON 55:
Previous Season: Well my number 1 goal was to retain and in the end I got very lucky in the second last race of the season and was able to add 2 points to the 5 points I achieved in the first race to secure retention. I had my old driver in the first 3 races and he was suppose to score at least 10 points in that period but that didn't happen and I was forced to push hard at the season end.

MY GOAL: RETENTION!!! So still the same goals as last season but surely now with 14 races under the belt for this new driver, this season should be a lot easier???????

R1 Singapore.....................19th.....21st 70CT First race with this energy bar and I feel even with this risk, it was too high. Not a promising start at all.........................92/84/86
R2 Baku City.....................18th.....33rd 30CT RANDOM. Smoking brakes with still 20 laps to go. After the race, the brakes were only 56% worn..................................92/83/86
R3 Serres.........................16th.....29th 30CT Well things are not getting any better. Three big driver mistakes and a miscalculation on my fuel, forcing another stop.....91/83/85
R4 Yeongam.....................16th.....12th 30CT All of a sudden, things are getting a little better. Despite the low risks, I was able to get to 19 seconds of those points......90/82/85
R5 Sepang.........................8th.....21st 40CT High hopes here before the start but again very disappointed with the result. In the end I was on the wrong strategy........96/85/86
R6 Sochi..........................18th.....19th 45CT I pushed the limit on my soft tyres and in the end, I was just 2 laps short. That extra pit stop costing me 8 places............99/92/95
R7 Suzuka.........................9th.....12th 50CT Driver's favourite track but in the end I just got caught up in the trains and just could not go forward. Still no points.......100/94/95
R8 Bremgarten.................14th.....12th 30CT Took a gamble we would have more wet laps then what we did. Fuelled heavily for rain but pitted after only 7 laps...........94/93/93
R9 Jyllands-Ringen............14th.....10th 50CT Well his best result this season but yet still no points. Into the second half now but he is improving................................95/91/93
R10 Zolder.......................12th.....13th 30CT Another solid result but still cannot find those elusive points.......................................................................................91/90/89
R11 Austin.......................10th.....25th 40CT A lot of rain forecasted here so I go with nearly a full wet set up and we don't even get a drop. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr....................91/89/88
R12 Montreal....................10th......6th 55CT Drivers favourite track and I had to push hard to get points. Success and my first points for the season. Is 3 enough?........91/97/92
R13 Mexico City................16th.....26th 50CT RANDOM!!! One of the wheels seemed to be loose and had to be fixed. This has cost me 14 places in this race..................97/98/94
R14 Brno.........................12th.......9th 50CT Oh so close but three big driver mistakes has robbed me of some points here................................................................98/98/96
R15 Valencia....................10th.....11th 50CT Yet again another solid result but no points. Is 3 points going to be enough to avoid relegation? I don't think so!.............100/100/98
R16 Kaunas.....................17th.......9th 50CT OK for the second time in 3 races another 9th place finish. I have now fallen into the relegation zone, and need points!!!.100/100/98
R17 Interlagos...................6th......14th 60CT Goodbye to the Pros...............................................................................................................................................99/98/95
.
SEASON 54:
Previous Season: Well I thought I would be in the Masters now but last season was a disaster. I was only able to make the podium on 2 occasions for a couple of 3rd place finishes. This season was full of disappointments and although my driver was inside the top three OA, he was really lacking something in his overall set-up.

0..........Pole positions

MY GOAL: RETENTION!!! I will lose my driver after race 3 so some early retention points. I will then recruit a new driver and I doubt you will see him up amongst the points until the middle of next season.

R1 Portimao......................1st.......4th 100CT Finally pole, it has been over 6 seasons since my last one. Though one stop more then the others has cost me a podium...91/94/88
R2 Paul Ricard...................1st......11th 70CT Yes another pole but it all went downhill from there. Very disappointing to not even get a point.......................................90/93/87
R3 Hungaring....................4th......15th 50CT The perfect start in wet to dry conditions. was able to lead early but really messed up my stop strategy with a type error...89/92/87
R4 Anderstorp..................26th......31st 0CT NEW DRIVER and long slow build up begins. RANDOM on lap 29 probably cost me about 4 places.....................................82/87/85
R5 Hockenheim................34th......30th 0CT Yep another run eating everyone's dust. All good though as I am at a very early stage of build up....................................82/87/84
R6 Laguna Seca...............37th......30th 0CT Well I have 5 points in the bank but I fell 3 places here to 17th. I hope 5 points is enough to avoid relegation....................72/74/72
R7 Rafaela Oval...............36th......31st 0CT Yet again I fall another 3 places to 20th. It is clear now that I will need more points before this season ends.......................65/72/68
R8 Fuji...........................30th......27th 20CT Well my best result so far, for this very new driver. Starting to use some risks with the hope of snaring some late points....72/74/71
R9 New Delhi..................33rd......23rd 30CT Once again another better display. Good to see him heading in the right direction. But slipped another 2 places in group....78/82/74
R10 Yas Marina................24th......24th 30CT I am happy with my build up but I have slipped 3 positions here and I will need more points to remain here......................77/79/71
R11 Kyalami....................31st......26th 30CT Made the mistake here of fuelling up short by 2 litres and that cost me 3 places. I am now in the relegation zone!..............77/78/77
R12 Adelaide...................32nd.....23rd 60CT Well I feel probably my best result with my new driver but I feel maybe that was because of the higher risks.....................77/78/75
R13 Spa.........................22nd......21st 40CT My new drivers best result but I have a strange feeling all this might be in vain if he cant retain.......................................88/79/80
R14 Grobnik...................19th.......19th 50CT Driver keeps improving but will there be enough races to get those much needed retention points....................................86/82/80
R15 Monza.....................22nd......13th 80CT Well a much needed boost to my drivers motivation and easily my new drivers best performance of the season..................90/84/86
R16 Istanbul...................11th.......7th 100CT Easily my new driver's best result this season. I have moved 3 up from relegation but will still need to push yet................95/83/88
R17 Oesterreichring.........30th......12th 100CT An incident in the first lap, dropped me to last. Although 2 leapfrogged me, I have been able to avoid relegation...............93/85/87

SEASON 53:
Previous Season: Well the season went just as predicted. Unfortunately though I only done the 4 testing sessions, I was hoping for at least 7. And my drivers motivation is only hallway there. I was able to collect my first win in a pro group, so all up, I think the season was a success.

MY GOAL: PROMOTION!!! I hope to promote to the Masters for the first time. My driver is 147OA and sits second in the group. I hope to maintain this position and if the results go my way early, his motivation will climb and that in itself should make my driver quick. I wont finish top but I hope to finish 3rd and snatch that final promoting spot.

R1 Barcelona..........................2nd.......4th 60CT Well I couldn't have asked for a better start considering my only mid range risk......................................................94/87/85
R2 Ahvenisto..........................9th......20th 99CT RANDOM. Probably would have finished around 7th but a random on lap 40 gave me no chance for points..................93/86/84
R3 Slovakiaring......................2nd......10th 70CT Terrible! Just really had no pace today and to not even score any race points is very disappointing. Promoting????......93/85/83
R4 Imola...............................2nd.......8th 70CT Well I have decide he is not strong enough this season so I will pull back from promotion. Promotion cancelled!!!!!.....96/100/95
R5 Indianapolis Oval...............2nd.......3rd 99CT Tried the 2 stopper and if I had of stuck with the 1 stopper, I may just have won this one. Promotion is back on!.......97/101/99
R6 Monte Carlo.....................10th......39th 99CT Shunted into the wall on the opening lap. This has really made it hard to promote. 16 points behind 3rd....................97/99/98
R7 Buenos Aires.....................3rd........5th 90CT Nope he just continues to struggle to reach the podium. Despite my efforts he falls 18 points behind 3rd..................100/96/93
R8 Mexico City.......................7th.......34th 0CT Disaster! I forgot to replace a few of my car parts and started smoking by lap 6. Promotion is definitely over now!..... 93/101/92
R9 Montreal...........................7th.......18th 50CT RANDOM. I have decided to pull back from promotion but yet even not pushing hard, I still cop a random!...............98/103/97
R10 Yeongam........................4th.......19th 50CT Another wet race and as my driver doesn't like any water on the track, I always knew I would only finish midfield......96/101/95
R11 Baku City........................4th.......13th 50CT Yet again another disappointing result. A brand new track here and I was quietly confident of getting some points......96/101/95
R12 Irungattukottai................4th.........6th 70CT Increased the risks slightly here and still not happy with the result. Time to wind back I think and build that cash.......95/100/94
R13 Fuji................................6th.........8th 50CT OK this is an area I will probably appear as I start racing more conservatively in preparation for next season...............95/99/93
R14 Mugello...........................2nd........3rd 100CT Probably my best race of the season but I had to push hard and plus some managers have already backed off...........94/98/92
R15 A1-Ring...........................3rd......37th 100CT RANDOM. First lap incident has forced me out of the race. Risk was overtake where possible....................................93/97/91
R16 Estoril.............................8th......10th 50CT Just racing very conservatively now to make sure I can finish the last race without replacing any car parts...................93/96/90
R17 Silverstone.....................10th......15th 0CT Saving on not replacing any car parts and a lottery race with unexpected weather conditions for the whole race.............92/95/89

SEASON 52:
Previous Season: Well it went exactly as I expected. I lost my driver after race 3 but I had gathered 6 points and this was to be enough to guarantee my return. I found myself a promising driver and spent the rest of the season building him up and I also was able to do plenty of testing. His OA was climbing to fast and I had to put a hold on the testing for awhile.
6..........Championship points
0..........Pole positions

MY GOAL: My driver is already 133 OA and I will monitor this closely until after race 3. I will then have the double sign up done and be able to go full racing again. My driver will have 0 motivation, so my biggest task here will be to build that up. I expect to collect maybe 25 points and easily retain.

R1 Fuji...............................14th.....32nd 0 CT Random. Not the best way to start the season but luckily still 2 races away before I start my push towards the Masters
R2 Sepang..........................12th.....35th 0 CT Well I really lacked pace here but was 2 laps short of fuel anyway. Just 1 more shitty race left before I start my climb.
R3 Melbourne......................11th.....27th 0 CT Well finally I have been able to secure my driver's double sign up and now I can start to compete again. :)
R4 Bucharest......................23rd......2nd 100CT Wow what a way to go racing again. It has been awhile but the wait has definitely been worth it...............................96/100/86
R5 Fiorano.........................22nd.....12th 70CT Wet to dry to wet to dry and back to wet. Was very fast in the dry but hopeless in the wet. Too many wet laps.............86/92/78
R6 Jerez..............................6th.......9th 60CT Downgrade a lot of parts as well as lowered the CT. To just miss out on race points, I'm happy with that......................85/92/76
R7 Sakhir.............................5th.....17th 40CT Low risks, low car parts. Really totally expected this result. Maybe time to start building things up...............................87/91/80
R8 Singapore.......................8th.......6th 100CT I wanted a few points so it is good that I can get some race points when needed......................................................87/91/86
R9 New Delhi.......................5th......13th 40CT Low risks again and the result was once again as predicted. Just getting things ready for next season......................... 87/92/86
R10 Yas Marina.....................8th........8th 60CT More points again and I am not even pushing. Trying to build up the finances for next season. ..................................86/91/85
R11 Shanghai......................10th......20th 40CT Wet, dry race and the rain just didn't stop in time for me and extra pit stop was made. Driver hates the rain anyway....85/91/85
R12 Estoril..........................22nd.......3rd 100CT Motivation has been dropping so I thought time to boost it. I never expected to make the podium though..................85/89/84
R13 Magny Cours..................3rd.......11th 60CT My best qualifying for some time but a random early in the race cost me any chance of collecting any points...............84/88/84
R14 Brands Hatch................27th......19th 50CT My drivers talent is not as high as I would like and in this wet race, I decided not to push too hard..............................85/88/84
R15 Sochi.............................4th.......1st 100CT I thought maybe a podium but never expected a win. Things are looking very good for next season............................89/90/86
R16 Kyalami.........................5th.......13th 30CT Very low risk as I try and finish these last 2 races without forking out anymore money on new parts...........................89/90/86
R17 Indianapolis..................16th.......10th 0CT Typical last race, not replacing any parts and trying to finish 90% of the race. Happy to achieve that...........................96/88/86

SEASON 51:
Previous Season: Well no where near promotion last season but that was really no surprise. It was my second best Pro season ever so not too bad I guess.
18........Championship points
0..........Pole positions

75 million. Current balance (made -7M last season)
MY GOAL: I will lose my driver after race 3 but I will have the second best driver in the group so I should be able to gather enough points to retain. I will then replace him after race 3 and try and train him up for at least 2 seasons for maybe another push towards the Master. My biggest fear this season will be trying to keep the sponsors happy. I don't expect to be anywhere near the points after race 3.

R1 Adelaide..........................20th......13th 89CT Wow this group looks tough this season. But the temperatures were too low for my Yoko tyres.
R2 Irungattukotta.................19th......20th 50CT Again the temperatures were too high and with only the 1 race left for my driver. I doubt I will survive the cut.
R3 Yeongam.........................10th.......3rd 99CT Surprise! My last race for my driver and easily his best race this season. 6 points in the bank and I am safe.
R4 Yas Marina......................17th......20th 30CT First race with new driver and considering he is so low in all standings, I am very pleased with his first run.
R5 Kaunas...........................27th......33rd 0CT Double random did not help my cause but I was fortunate that I was not pushing.
R6 Poznan............................31st......34th 0CT Well definitely a quiet stage in the game for me at the moment but that is only temporary, as I continue to build.
R7 Nurburgring.....................31st......33rd 0CT Ditto
R8 Serres.............................31st......28th 0CT Ditto
R9 Istanbul..........................25th......26th 0CT Things are looking better with my best qualifying and finish while in this slow rebuild.
R10 Zandvoort......................30th.....22nd 0CT My best finish with new driver but I think this was because the high engine wear here, many smoked early.
R11 Valencia.........................27th.....25th 0CT Full wet race and a good chance to see where he sits in the wet.
R12 Portimao........................27th.....23rd 0CT Again a very similar result to the race before in very similar conditions.
R13 Laguna Seca...................19th.....27th 0CT Random 1 lap before my first pit stop hurt, lucky though I am not pushing.
R14 Rafaela Oval...................22nd.....36th 20CT Random! Once again a random, tyre puncture has left me now only 4 spot above that relegation zone.
R15 Brasilia..........................12th......21st 0CT My driver continue to improve but yet again I fall another spot down the Season Standings.
R16 Montreal........................17th......21st 0CT Yeah still plodding along but at least I held my spot in the season standings.
R17 Suzuka..........................16th......17th 0CT Well I am glad this very dull season is over. Just 3 mores races before I can go full racing again.

SEASON 50:
Previous Season: I had hoped to finish inside the 15 with at least 20 points. I ended up 14th with 17 points, so maybe just a little under par. I did have 2 consecutive first lap accidents that took me out off both races. I really struggled in building my driver's motivation.

82 million. Current balance (made +12M last season)
MY GOAL: Promotion was my goal but because I was unable to boost my driver's motivation last season, I believe that promotion could be out of reach. I will race hard in these early races but I know I am up against managers that already have full motivation. I might be chasing the top runners in the back half of this season after what I would imagine will be a tardy start to the season.

R1 Austin..........................17th.....18th 99CT Totally perplexed over this result. I was expecting 8th but even on the Dunnolops, he was just so slow.
R2 Mexico City...................17th.....23rd 89CT I am dumbfounded as to why he is so slow. To cap it off I was 9 litres short of fuel to complete the race.
R3 Buenos Aires.................19th.....23rd 0CT Interesting with absolute no risks, I get a similar result to the last race, where I pushed nearly to the max.
R4 Fuji..............................15th.....24th 39CT Once again I am at a loss why he is performing so slowly?
R5 Interlagos.....................14th.......9th 79CT Easily my best run of the season and some much needed motivation.
R6 Imola............................7th........4th 99CT He just loves the wet! A full wet race and my first points for the season.
R7 Hungaroring...................6th......11th 39CT Because of some worn car parts this is really the best I could hope for. At least no motivations drop here.
R8 Bremgarten....................9th......12th 79CT First time here and under fuelled badly but still not too bad a result.
R9 Yas Marina.....................6th......10th 89CT Driver's favourite track and really a very disappointing display.
R10 Paul Ricard...................4th........4th 89CT Definitely his best result in the dry this season. Maybe finally I can start moving forward.
R11 Monte Carlo................20th.......14th 69CT Typical result here. Just got heavily blocked during the early stages and never made up that time.
R12 Silverstone...................3rd.......10th 89CT My best qualifying for the season but unfortunately, I was doing 1 more pit stop then most of the field.
R13 Kyalami......................16th........7th 89CT I didn't expect to get points here so a handy surprise.
R14 Adelaide.....................11th........9th 79CT Just a solid run without threatening the top runners though.
R15 Oesterreichring............ 6th........24th 0CT No internet and I reckon I really had the wrong figures here?
R16 Zolder.........................5th........11th 59CT Just really lacked any speed. Thought I would have been knocking on the door for a podium.
R17 Avus...........................9th.........3rd 89CT A nice way to cap off a rather disappointing season.

SEASON 49:
Previous Season: Well I recruited myself a promising driver after race 3, and after some slow progress early he is now starting to be a bit more competitive. I was able to put him through 8 testing sessions last season and he has also gained a big improvement on his stamina
8..........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
21.........End of season standings
70 million. Current balance (loss -9M last season)
MY GOAL: I have another 3 races with him until I re-sign him for another 17 races. I hope to finish inside the top 15 with at least 20 points

R1 Brno..........................25th.....26th 10CT Could not push here so the result is really expected. It is early but this group does look fast.
R2 Brands Hatch..............15th.....21st 99CT My first push for sometime and I cop a random.
R3 Monza........................19th......6th 80CT Favourite track here but gained too much motivation to re-sign my driver. This will be done after the next race.
R4 Portimao....................25th.....28th 0CT Demotivation!! Job is done and driver is signed up for another 2 seasons.
R5 Serres.......................18th.......8th 99CT Yet another point and yet I have very little driver motivation. All looking very promising for rest of this season.
R6 Sakhir.......................20th.......8th 99CT Motivation gain +20 but a DM 2 laps from home, cost me 3 positions.
R7 Singapore..................17th.......9th 80CT Motivation gain +20 and everything going along very well for my plans to promote to the Masters next season.
R8 Yeongam.....................6th.....31st 50CT Forgot to make the change for when rain stops, put the dry tyres on.
R9 Irungattukottai.............9th.......4th 99CT Easily my best race for some time as my driver continues to improve.
R10 Suzuka.......................5th.......5th 99CT Totally wet and driver's favourite track. Unfortunately fuelled short and this cost me 2 positions.
R11 Melbourne.................19th.....32nd 99CT First lap incident. DNF
R12 Sepang.....................13th.....33rd 79CT First lap incident. DNF What's changed, I always run these risks and have never crashed out before.
R13 Sochi........................15th.....16th 99CT For some reason, I'm really off the pace here. Probably because of all that dropped motion in the previous 2 races.
R14 Ahvenisto..................11th......7th 99CT It's good to be in the points again. Some much needed motivations gain as well.
R15 Brasilia.....................11th.....13th 99CT Yeah got held up badly with some back markers. Motivation was 95 before this race, dropped to 80 after this result.
R16 Rafaela Oval.............. 6th......20th 0CT Just saving some car parts, too late in the season to be doing any excessive buying of any car parts.
R17 Austin......................

SEASON 48:
Previous Season: Well I did achieve my promotion but I really didn't expect to have to fight so hard to get it. Promotion was not guaranteed until the 2nd last race of the season. Still it enabled me to have my best Amateur season I have ever had in this game.
94........Championship points
2..........Pole positions
3..........Wins
7..........On the dias
2..........Fastest laps
3..........End of season standings
79 million. Current balance (loss -3M last season)
MY GOAL: I had to push for too long last season and now with only 3 races left with my driver, I cannot get his OA down low enough to resign him. So I will have a new driver by race 3. I hope to score enough points in these first 2 races to hopefully retain.

R1 Indianapolis............13th.......8th 99CT Had to push hard here, with only 2 races left with my driver, I must score some race points.
R2 Mexico City.............10th.......6th 99CT I continue to push hard but I'm getting very good rewards. Just 1 more to go so hopefully a few more points yet.
R3 Silverstone.............14th.......7th 99CT Well that's it. I have now lost my driver and it's time to find me a new driver.
R4 Paul Ricard.............29th.....22nd 20CT Nearly a full wet race and considering driver is only 37th in the group, not too bad a result at all.
R5 Anderstorp.............32nd.....23rd 20CT Well considering my car level is the second worst in the group, really not too bad a result.
R6 Istanbul.................30th.....20th 80CT I pushed a bit harder, trying to keep the sponsors happy but it appears to early to push yet.
R7 Bucharest...............34th.....29th 0CT Frustrating time of my build because I cannot allow my driver to improve too quickly. Still 13 races to go before re-sign.
R8 Mugello..................35th.....23rd 40CT My car parts allowed me to increase my risks here but it is all a waste of time with my driver's skills so low.
R9 Hungaroring...........32nd.....25th 0CT Boring part of the game, just biding my time until I can push a bit harder next season.
R10 Fuji......................29th.....19th 70CT Because parts allowed me I push a bit harder here to get my best finish with my new driver.
R11 Sakhir..................24th.....20th 50CT Car level is still way too low but will start to build that later this season.
R12 New Delhi.............26th.....21st 35CT I increased the car slightly here to be 13th on the list but obviously, my driver still needs a lot more training.
R13 Yas Marina............33rd......7th 70CT Messed up Q1 but with my favourite track I was able to overtake 26 cars. Oh what could have been.
R14 Yeongam..............24th.....10th 80CT I have gathered a bit of motivation lately and maybe that has given me a good result here. Best race for my current driver.
R15 Adelaide...............18th.....17th 0CT Well this wasn't suppose to happen. I'm trying to lower his motivation but he gained 21 here. Must smoke last 2 races.
R16 Hockenheim.........34th......17th 0CT I tried to lose some motivation here but other managers just started smoking before me. Only lost 7 motivation points.
R17 Spa.....................

SEASON 47:
Previous Season: I was able to re-sign my driver after R3 and during this season I was able to get my driver testing 9 times. Also significantly improved my Staff and Facilities to match those in the Pros. So all my goals were achieved for this season.
12........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
11........End of season standings
82 million. Current balance (loss -9M last season)
MY GOAL: Promotion is a must here. I have the third best driver OA and I am also the third richest manager in this group. I will lose my driver after R3 next season so I must race hard this season. I hope to get close to winning this group but will not be spending heaps of money to do it. I expect to finish 2nd this season.

R1 Singapore.................4th.......1st 60CT Surprising win in very changing conditions. Will still push hard in these early races to boost driver's motivation.
R2 Istanbul...................4th.......4th 50CT Disappointed that I didn't reach the podium but I wonder what CT those above me used.
R3 Estoril......................1st.......5th 50CT While those above me push the limit, I must be patient and look at the bigger picture.
R4 Magny Cours............3rd........1st 50CT Upgrade a lot of my parts, spending over 20M but it seems worth it.
R5 Barcelona.................4th......10th 40CT Excessive wear on cooling caused smoking car for nearly half the race.
R6 Brands Hatch............4th.......2nd 40CT The perfect race with no DMs. Winner was just too strong today.
R7 Zolder.....................3rd........3rd 50CT Nearly the perfect race. I took a big risk starting on wets in dry conditions but it just rained longer then predicted.
R8 Fiorano....................4th........5th 40CT A rather poor race here although I did get held up by backmarkers. Losing touch with the top 3 might need to increase CT.
R9 Monte Carlo..............4th........5th 60CT I increased the risks here hoping to reach the podium but a very poor start got me stuck behind a backmarker for 25 laps.
R10 Fuji........................4th........4th 50CT A very wet race but a dry start. I chose correctly and started the race on wet tyres but he really lacked pace?
R11 Shanghai................2nd.......4th 70CT Pushing harder but still the same result. A failed car part 6 laps from home, cost me 2 places.
R12 Sepang...................3rd.......3rd 60CT Finally back on the podium but I am really only just hanging on to the top 3. Aiming at those additional promotion spots.
R13 Montreal.................4th.......4th 40CT Again I lost a few places at the start, got held up and lost a stack of time. Still I sit in 4th in my group.
R14 Brasilia...................4th.......5th 80CT Even with such a risk, I'm still finding it hard to catch the top 3.
R15 Indianapolis Oval.....1st.......2nd 70CT Finally made the podium but yet I still cannot break into the top 3. Only 3 points behind 2nd placed manager though.
R16 Kyalami..................3rd.......1st 80CT Had to really push here to guarantee promotion. Pros here I come.
R17 A1 Ring..................8th......14th 0CT Smoking! There is no point in pushing at all for this final race. Promotion is guaranteed.

SEASON 46:
Previous Season: Well I did collect my 2 wins before I lost my driver. This virtually guaranteed my season and I was able to recruit a very but cheap driver. I had to race most of the races last season with 0 risks to control his OA. A rather boring season but all up I did what I wanted to do although I did lose a couple of sponsors.
2..........Pole positions
2..........Wins
3..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
9..........End of season standings
91 million. Current balance (loss -11M last season)
MY GOAL: RETENTION. I can re-sign my driver after R3 so must make sure his OA does not go above 110. Then from R4 I will have 2 full seasons to race hard with him, plenty of testing and training, and hopefully after this season I can push for promotion in the following season.

R1 Slovakiaring.............21st.....28th 0CT risks as I demotivate but messed up as well with incorrect fuel loads.
R2 Fiorano....................21st.....25th 0CT risks and the car started smoking 14 laps from home. All good though with 1 more race before I can re-sign.
R3 Serres.....................28th.....26th 0CT for the last time. Finally I have re-signed my driver and it's time to show my competitors what he can do!
R4 Portimao..................12th.....10th 40CT and it's so good to be able to go racing again. Motivation still low but he will only get better from here.
R5 Rafaela....................25th.....10th 0CT but a whiting start has really help me leapfrog a lot of my competitors.
R6 Austin......................12th......9th 40CT My best result this season and getting very close to some points now.
R7 Melbourne................10th......9th 80CT Tried to collect a few points but finished oh so close.
R8 Ahvenisto.................16th......9th 79CT Very unlucky with a smoking car costing me 5 positions in those last 10 laps.
R9 Poznan......................5th......7th 89CT Getting better after every race. My best starting position and also my best finish for the season.
R10 Valencia..................8th.......6th 39CT Another good result as my driver's motivation continues to build.
R11 Sepang...................7th.......7th 50CT Wet and dry conditions but with a better wet performance was able to score a few more points.
R12 Sakhir.....................8th.......6th 50CT Once again the perfect race! More points and a bit more of an increase on driver's motivation.
R13 Kaunas...................7th.......7th 35CT I lowered my CT risks and still got similar results. Everything looking strong for next season.
R14 Oesterreichring........7th.....20th 35CT Random in a very wet race but I also lowered my engine level to 3 and hence no speed.
R15 Shanghai................9th......10th 10CT Saving some part after doing testing. Still happy with the result considering very low risks.
R16 Irungattukottai........9th......18th 0CT I have retired for the season so it just saving money from here.
R17 Yeongam................2nd.....25th 0CT I was only able to do 5 laps before my car started to smoke and retired from the race 10 laps from home.

SEASON 45:
Previous Season: Well a failed promotion but I had decided he wasn't strong enough and pulled back after R13, he finished 4th, right behind those promoting. I wanted 2 wins but I will take my single win. Made 36M and did 3 testing sessions as well. Although I didn't promote, I had fun during the season and my driver was certainly very good in qualifying. To promote to the pros and survive that first season, you must have everything right. I wasn't quite there.
6..........Pole positions
1..........Wins
5..........On the dias
2..........Fastest laps
4..........End of season standings
102 million. Current balance (made +36M last season)
MY GOAL: RETENTION. I lose my driver after race 3 but hope to collect 2 wins. This will guarantee my season is safe, so I can then recruit a youngish driver with a lowish OA but with great potential after plenty of training. The trick is here though to keep those sponsors happy while I will definitely be running some poor races.

R1 Yas Marina.............1st........3rd Only 50CT risk and I reckon those above me were racing with a much higher risk.
R2 Sochi....................2nd........1st Increased the risk to 80CT to collect the win. Only 1 race left with my current driver.
R3 Anderstorp.............1st........1st A last hurrah for my driver as he leaves me. Now to find a similar driver?
R4 Bucharest.............28th.....29th Worst driver in the field but there is plenty of promise there. The rest of this season will be all about training and testing.
R5 Istanbul................29th.....25th The only manager to go with the 1 stopper and again raced with 0 CT risks. The only problem is unhappy sponsors?
R6 Brno....................27th.......7th Increased CT to 80, to try and keep the sponsors happy. Great result and they still respond "Sponsor is unhappy with your performance"????
R7 Imola..................22nd.....23rd One sponsor has left me but I must look at the big picture. In two seasons time he will be so much stronger.
R8 Monte Carlo..........20th.....29th Planned smoking car. Got through 2/3rds of the race but still racing very conservatively with 0 risks.
R9 Zolder.................14th.....22nd 0 risks and similar results.
R10 Jerez..................22nd.....22nd 0 risks and I continue to build this season for a much bigger push right from race 1 next season.
R11 Montreal..............25th......20th 0 risks and a bad DM but continue to build.
R12 Mexico City..........22nd.....26th 0 risks and started smoking a bit earlier then I thought I would, still done 90% of the race though.
R13 Interlagos............16th.....22nd 0 risks but I didn't bring any wet tyres and it rained for 18 laps. Didn't expect so much rain.
R14 Kyalami...............20th......29th 0 risks and continue to be patient but I just can't wait for this season to finish and then, look out.
R15 Adelaide..............24th......19th 0 risks and ditto results.
R16 Suzuka................28th.....22nd 25CT because I could, but really not much different with a very similar result.
R17 New Delhi............14th.....22nd Smoking

SEASON 44:
Previous Season: I finished 9th but not too far from those promoting. I wanted 2 wins but I will take my single win. Made 37M and did 6 testing sessions as well. All up I am very happy with my season.
0..........Pole positions
1..........Wins
2..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
9..........End of season standings
66 million..Current balance (made +37M last season)
MY GOAL: PROMOTION!! I have no choice as I will lose my driver at the end of the season. I don't want to push too hard to get there either so I doubt I will win the championship. Aiming for probably 3rd at the end of the season with hopefully 80M in the bank. I shall also look at snaring 3 race wins.

R1 Kaunas.................2nd.......5th Total wet race and thought I would have done better but I did only use medium CT risk.
R2 Austin..................2nd.......7th A little disappointing and I may need to increase my CT risks if I want to promote.
R3 Slovakiaring..........5th......12th Forgot to replace engine, so had to race with 0 risks. Still not too bad a result.
R4 New Delhi.............1st .......7th Pole, fastest lap but definitely one pit stop too many. Also high wear parts only allowed me to race with 45CT
R5 Serres..................3rd.......2nd Increased the CT risk here to 70 and straight away I seem so much more competitive.
R6 Rafaela Oval..........6th.......4th I reckon my car race settings was wrong but still a very respectable result.
R7 Oesterreichring......3rd......2nd Many driver's around me making mistakes otherwise would have only finished 5th.
R8 Valencia.............. 2nd.......6th Just got caught up badly behind those backmarkers, so hard to overtake here.
R9 Sochi...................3rd.......2nd He just keeps getting better and now to push a little more to claim this final promoting spot.
R10 Poznan.............. 1st......34th Bloody Random!! I should have finished 3rd.
R11 Yeongam............1st.......3rd Should have been 2nd but just could not get around him. Trailing that final promoting spot by 13 points.
R12 Ahvenisto...........1st......32nd Crash on the first corner. First and last time I will use risk "force your way to the front" even from pole
R13 Mugello..............1st........1st Favourite track and I was never going to lose this one. Hat trick!!!!
R14 Nurburgring.......2nd.......2nd Decided not to promote but luckily 3rd manager won this race. Ten points outside promotion zone.
R15 Zandvoort.........2nd.......5th O CT risks here and surprisingly a good result. Will have to watch I don't accidently promote.
R16 Portimao...........2nd.....10th O CT again as I save some parts to complete the last race. Should have finished 7th but wrong strategy.
R17 Fuji....................1st......4th Random. This has definitely cost me the win.

SEASON 43:
Previous Season: Main goal was to survive after being relegated to the amateurs. Done that, built up my staff and facilities! Found myself a new driver that really show some promise. I did spend 14M but that was on my facilities and plenty of testing.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
17.........End of season standings
29 million..Current balance (loss -14M last season)
MY GOAL: Finish 5th in the standings at the end of the season and win 2 races. I don't want to promote, that is next season. Continue to build the bank balance and don't push too hard.

R1 Melbourne...............5th.....16th 0 risks and an extra pit stop thrown in as well. Only 2 more races of demotivation.
R2 Kyalami...................9th.....13th 0 risks. Still sitting on 110OA with one more race until driver extension.
R3 Brands Hatch...........3rd.....20th 0 risks again and really had to run a bad race so his OA didn't climb.
R4 Spa........................5th.....11th Re-signed my driver but still not able to push because of worn car parts. 0 risks again
R5 Kaunas.................11th.....21st Random:( First time in a long time that I have race with high CT risk and I get this :(
R6 Paul Ricard..............6th......4th Nice, only 50CT risks and I was so close to 3rd. Good encouragement for next season.
R7 Portimao.................7th.....2nd He is going from strength to strength now. Best result in over 6 seasons.
R8 Monza....................3rd......8th 30CT risk here and he still scores points. I like this guy. :)
R9 Mexico City..............4th......1st YES my last win was 191 races ago. Now just to find the hand brake for the rest of the season.
R10 Buenos Aires...........9th......9th 20CT risk here and to only just finish outside the points, not too bad.
R11 Laguna Seca...........6th......8th 40CT and into the points. Continues to improve after every race.
R12 Singapore...............7th......7th 25CT I also lowered some car parts and yet still collecting points. :)
R13 Sakhir....................8th......6th 25CT and a driver of consistency at the moment. Bank balance continues to grow as well.
R14 New Delhi................5th.....6th 25CT and I don't think I have ever been in a better position in a amateur group then where I am now.
R15 Shanghai................8th....11th 0CT because I am saving my parts to complete this season. Not too bad a result though.
R16 Suzuka...................5th....13th Random! I thought I might have pinched 4th but the engine just decided to just stop working.
R17 Sochi......................6th....17th First time here and I ended up 5 laps short of fuel. All set now for next season.

SEASON 42:
Previous Season: Disappointment! I renewed my driver's contract after race 3 but this proved to be a very bad move. He was just not good enough for the Pros. I believe my staff and facilities were far too low for Pro as well. In the end I am glad I got relegated.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
34.........End of season standings
43 million..Current balance (made +14M last season)
MY GOAL: Survival! The first season after relegation is always the hardest. I have to find myself a driver good enough to reach the Masters after some training. Improve my staff and facilities and make some money. It is so hard to make money in the Pros.

R1 Montreal................15th.....13th Favourite track and should have finished 8th but fueled short and had to pit two laps from home.
R2 Brasilia..................12th.....15th Frustratingly fueled short again and was forced to do a late pit stop that cost me 4 places.
R3 Indianapolis...........10th.....12th Everything worked out nicely and I feel points are not too far away.
R4 Kyalami.................14th.......8th First points in 25 races and I feel like now I might need to pull back this driver a little bit. Only raced with 40CT.
R5 A1-Ring.................11th.......7th Very impressive! Full wet race and 0 risks and I still scored points.
R6 Poznan.................18th......16th Only 20CT and lowered a lot of my car parts. Motivation was held and driver's OA remained the same.
R7 Magny Cours...........9th......24th RANDOM! One was due soon I suppose at least this one hasn't hurt my long terms plan.
R8 Ahvenisto..............13th......10th Half way mark and I'm happy with my position this season in a building season.
R9 Silverstone............15th......14th Only 20CT again and a long one stopper but really happy with where I finished.
R10 Imola...................8th........9th My best start this season and I feel he is getting stronger after every race.
R11 Rafaela Oval........13th......18th 0 risks and tried lowering my OA but it remains the same after receiving some CCPs.
R12 Zolder.................12th......16th 0 risks, wrong strategy and still not a bad result. All planned.
R13 Hockenheim..........8th......16th 0 risks again. He is certainly getter strong in qualifying and just cant wait to start pushing.
R14 Adelaide...............9th ......5th 0 risks! Full wet race and I reckon I could have won this one if I pushed.
R15 Hungaroring........11th......10th 0 risks! Again my driver's OA improved, looks like I might really need to stuff up a race soon to keep this down.
R16 Yas Marina............3rd......17th 0 risks and five pit stops. Yet my driver's OA still remains the same.
R17 Irungattukottai....29th......17th 0 risks and seven pit stops but with so many not finishing, only dropped 1 point OA.

SEASON 41:
Previous Season: Well wasn't as strong as I thought but my driver just a lot of motivation during those first 3 races and again in the last 2 races when I was saving my car parts. Retained very comfortably but I was hoping to get some results in the top 5
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
14.........End of season standings
29 million..Current balance (lost -8M last season)
MY GOAL: I was hoping for a push towards promotion but my driver is a little behind where I want him. I will cruise for the first 3 races then re-sign my driver for maybe another go for the Masters next season. This sounds very similar to my goals from last season:)

R1 Sepang................19th.....12th Demotivation. Just got to hold steady and not gain too much OA in these first 3 races
R2 Sakhir..................18th.....18th RANDOM in the first lap has cost me 8th place.
R3 Fuji......................17th.....15th Really lacking pace but re-signing of driver has boosted his motivation. See if this helps?
R4 Laguna Seca...........7th.....17th Underbody of the car let go after too much kerb hopping.
R5 Mexico City...........13th.....21st Wet race, but the car is just so slow. Considering hard about relegating while I still have money.
R6 Shanghai..............30th.....14th A better race but I still seem so far away from the top runners.
R7 Zolder..................26th.....26th My worst race for some time especially since I was racing with 100CT.
R8 Zandvoort............29th.....30th OCT here and I have decided to relegate and start afresh from the Amateurs.
R9 Estoril.................32nd.....30th 0CT again and I am starting to realize how bad this driver is.
R10 Oesterreichring....25th.....11th Tried 100CT with better results but still so far from the points.
R11 Istanbul..............27th.....15th Again 100CT but driver is just not good enough. Time to relegate and find another driver.
R12 Barcelona............33rd.....30th 0 CT risks and just saving pennies. I will be relegated but really looking forward to a fresh start with the amateurs.
R13 Serres.................33rd.....30th 0 CT risks again and more pennies saved.
R14 Slovakiaring.........16th.....31st 0 CT risks again and more pennies saved.
R15 Anderstorp..........25th.....18th Whiting start helped but with 0 risks I am still so far from being competitive.
R16 Monte Carlo.........31st.....34th Lap 35 and your car had a puncture and could not finish the race.
R17 Monza................28th ....19th My last race with 0 risks and now I can wait to start racing again, albeit in a lower group.

SEASON 40:
Previous Season: Well what a hard fought season this was. I chose the wrong tyres at the start of the season and it was a hard battle the whole season, just fighting to retain my spot amongst the Pros for next season. It wasn't until the last race of the season that I was able to do this.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
1..........Fastest laps
19.........End of season standings
37 million..Current balance (lost -39M last season)
MY GOAL: It was going to be for promotion to the Masters but I lost so much ground that I have to really repeat last season. I must re-sign my driver for another season, so my first 3 races will be demotivation. Then it will be to retain comfortably with the hope of promoting next season.

R1 Suzuka.................2nd....37th Demotivation. So nearly got pole but unfortunately could not push for this race.
R2 Yas Marina...........28th....27th Demotivation. My target has been reach but still have to wait one more race before re-sign.
R3 Anderstorp...........23rd......6th Wow better than I thought. Could not push too hard because still demotivating. Now to start racing.
R4 Portimao...............8th......9th Should have finished 4th but worn car parts let go, late in the race. Still managing money wisely.
R5 Nurburgring...........4th.....10th Should have been better but a bad driver mistake at the wrong time.
R6 Mugello...............12th......6th Good strategy and was able to make up many places during the race.
R7 Silverstone..........12th.....13th Really had trouble overtaking here yet others seem to pass me with ease.
R8 Kaunas.................4th......8th Great qualifying but unfortunately lacked a bit of race pace here.
R9 Hungaroring..........5th......7th Consistent now and it is all looking good for next season.
R10 Brno...................36th....20th Really messed up Q2 and from there it was just too far back.
R11 Indianapolis Oval..5th....35th Engine wear was just way too high here and so the team decided not to replace any parts.
R12 Brasilia.................5th....28th I misread the weather conditions and really got hit hard by so much rain.
R13 Buenos Aires.......11th.....5th A nice solid race but I did get held up fairly badly by some back markers.
R14 Yeongam.............5th.....9th Different strategy then most and it didn't really work out today.
R15 Melbourne...........16th...24th I really don't know what happened here. Very poor qualifying and a very poor result.
R16 Singapore...........15th....24th Saving some pennies for these last 2 races and racing with 0 risks
R17 New Delhi............27th...24th Smoked before the halfway mark but was still able to reach the 90% mark.

SEASON 39:
Previous Season: With me putting all my eggs on my driver's favourite track, retention in this group was made. That is all I wanted, I did not want to spend too much money in doing this. Spent 23M which is acceptable I think.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
1..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
17.........End of season standings
76 million..Current balance (lost -23M last season)
MY GOAL: To improve my driver with the hope of pushing for the Masters in season 40. I must re-sign my driver soon before his OA goes above 135 but I must wait til after race 3.

R1 Austin.................7th....19th Demotivation. Everything worked out nicely with small risks. 2 more races of demotivation still to come though.
R2 Montreal............21st...32nd Demotivation. Wasn't supposed to finish that far back but got hit with a random.
R3 Interlagos...........6th....17th A great start to the race but just lost my speed in the back half of the race?
R4 Mexico City........24th....19th Yokomamas are so far behind the Avonns! Did nothing wrong but I continue to lose ground behind them.
R5 Paul Ricard........18th....34th It just goes from bad to worse. Forgot to replace the cars underbody!
R6 Zolder...............15th...22nd Tough wet to dry conditions but ran out on fuel in the final lap and lost 10 places.
R7 Brands Hatch.......9th.....6th Yes!! A full wet race really benefited me here but I feel I still need one more good result.
R8 Fiorano..............30th....9th Good motivation from the previous race and his best performance in the dry so far this season.
R9 Istanbul............12th...10th Well continuing this good form but unfortunately just outside those race points.
R10 Serres.................8th...16th First time here and just got the wrong strategy here but nearly pinched fastest lap.
R11 Ahvenisto...........11th....7th A surprise result here but I will still take the points.
R12 Valencia..............3rd...19th I needed 4 laps of wet here. It was forecasted but it didn't happen.
R13 Irungattukottai...11th...17th Just saving my parts and cash for a better race. I still need one good result to remain here.
R14 Sepang...............3rd.....9th Should have been better but the rain forecasted didn't happen. Actually led this one early.
R15 Fuji.....................5th...17th Once again there just wasn't enough rain during the race to really make up any ground.
R16 Adelaide............11th...13th The weather was too increment here, just didn't know if it was going to rain or stay dry.
R17 Kyalami..............7th.....4th Season safe!!!!!!

SEASON 38:
Previous Season: Promotion achieved which was my must goal. Completed the season 2nd in the standings, group leader was way too strong. The only thing disappointing was I was not able to win a race.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
7..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
2..........End of season standings
99 million..Current balance (made +20M last season)
MY GOAL: Retain!!! The first season after promotion is always the hardest and I must retain here. I have saved 100M to give myself a good launching pad into the pros. Only 2 races left in driver's contract and must decide quickly if he is good enough to re-sign.

R1 Monza.................38th...28th A tough initiation with the pros but definitely not a 1 stopper on hards here.
R2 Valencia...............33rd...26th A bit better but for some reason the 2 stopper on softs was not achievable here.
R3 Magny Cours........38th...29th Two in a row where I have totally stuffed up my strategies. I shall hopefully switch my brain on next time.
R4 Singapore............11th...11th New Driver!!! Straight away big improvements.
R5 Hockenheim.........19th...20th Oops! Forgot to change my strategy from last race.
R6 Slovakiaring.........11th...17th Stop starting the whole race, very tricky conditions to get things right.
R7 Kaunas...............18th....18th Not quite strong enough yet, I feel I might need to increase my risks.
R8 Yeongam............14th....17th Increased risks slightly but still struggling a bit. Not too sure now if I can survive this season.
R9 Shanghai............24th....18th Should have been better but badly blocked during the race and then a driver mistake cost me badly.
R10 Suzuka.............14th......3rd Season saving result. Driver's favourite track but I had to push to the max.
R11 Bucharest Ring...15th....14th Tried the 1 stopper but really lacked a lot of pace here.
R12 Monte Carlo.......11th....28th Terrible, terrible, terrible. Not enough fuel! High wear rate on gear box, maybe a random?
R13 Austin...............16th....10th Only second time here but another strong display here
R14 New Delhi..........20th....11th Some minor adjustments before the race really benefited here.
R15 Sakhir..............12th......9th Tried 100CT risk again but although it was not a hard track to overtake, I just could not overtake.
R16 Yas Marina........21st.....21st Full conservation mode now and it's all about preparation for next season.
R17 Buenos Aires.....12th....14th Another very reserved race with a good result. Also secured a strong TD for next season.

SEASON 37
Previous Season: Well everything worked out just as I planned. In only 2 races I was able to get my driver's motivation down low enough to re-sign him and then I was able to push for the rest of the season. In the end I scored more race points then expected and was able to retain easily.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
10........End of season standings
79 million..Current balance (made +41M last season)
MY GOAL: I spent all of last season building up my bank balance and training up my driver. If I don't finish in the top 3 this season I will be very disappointed. I doubt if I will challenge too hard for group Champion, I'm more interested in taking a large sum of money with me to the Pros. I expect not to race with any higher risks then 30CT.

R1 Nurgburgring.........3rd.....8th First race and a little disappointed. Terrible pit stops and maybe risks too low.
R2 Paul Ricard...........2nd....8th I thought the rain would have lasted longer hence my tyres could not go the distance.
R3 Jerez...................7th....13th Whoops forgot to start on the drys.
R4 Mugello...............7th.....7th Should have been 2 positions better but under fuelled 2 laps from home.
R5 Oesterreichring.....9th....2nd Back on the podium after an absence of 62 races, with the perfect 1 stopper.
R6 Estoril..................4th....6th Maybe the 2 stopper on extra softs could have been faster then the 3 stopper? Tyres would not have lasted!
R7 Hungaroring........11th...4th A very solid 1 stopper and now finally I am working up towards promotion nicely.
R8 Indianapolis.........6th....7th I misjudged the wear on the brakes and lost 3 positions because of this.
R9 Melbourne...........4th....2nd A dry to wet race and good strategies used here for another strong finish.
R10 Brasilia................6th....3rd Getting some very good consistency now and my bank balance is building up nicely.
R11 Suzuka................6th...2nd The perfect one stopper.
R12 Yeongam.............9th...2nd A rather poor qualifying but my driver is certainly quick and was able to finish strongly.
R13 Sepang...............6th....7th Random! Was going to finish 3rd but still finished 7th.
R14 New Delhi............3rd....5th I thought I had a fast car here but fell back through the pack. I don't know why?
R15 Spa....................5th....3rd Really messed up my strategy here but in the end it did not cost me any positions.
R16 Brno...................3rd...10th I didn't expect it too rain as long as it did and it cost me badly.
R17 Poznan...............2nd...2nd Best race of the season and only 6s of winning this one.

SEASON 36
Previous Season: Just as expected. I got myself a driver which after starting slowly was coming better as the season went. He does show a lot of potential but I just don't think he is ready for the Pros yet
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
17........End of season standings
38 million..Current balance
MY GOAL: I think this season I will start poorly and try and get my driver's OA down to 110 re-sign him and then push hard for the rest of the season.

R1 Zandvoort.............40th...35th Demotivation
R2 Monza..................37th...38th Demotivation
R3 Istanbul................12th...21st Totally wrong strategy! Worth a risk here but it did not come off.
R4 Barcelona...............2nd...14th My best start in a long time, getting better after every race.
R5 Hungaroring...........5th......7th Another strong performance in an all wet race. I know now my driver doesn't mind a wet track.
R6 Ahvenisto.............29th....11th Stuffed up my Q2 run! Passed 18 cars, oh what could have been!
R7 Anderstorp........... 9th......9th Should have finished higher but just could not overtake on this very tough track.
R8 Monte Carlo...........7th......5th Best finish this season and it is all starting to look nice and rosy for next season.
R9 Portimao..............10th.....7th Another steady display and a few more race points.
R10 Indianapolis Oval..5th......8th Big wear on the engine but unfortunately the electronics let go first.
R11 Mexico City.........22nd....16th In wet conditions, risk were too high with 8 driver mistakes.
R12 Montreal............ 8th.....17th Got stuck behind a rather long train and just caught not get around.
R13 Yeongam............11th......8th Yet again another train but was able to pass a few.
R14 New Delhi.............3rd.....12th Best start for a long time but unfortunately under fuel and could not capitalize on it.
R15 Singapore............6th.......7th A steady race with fairly low CT risks.
R16 Adelaide..............8th.......8th Trying to save my parts and felt rather pleased to score a point with 0 risks.
R17 Silverstone...........6th......7th Again 0 risks and a few more points. Ready for promotion next season.

SEASON 35
Previous season: Disastrous! That would have to be one of my hardest seasons in a pro group. I spent 52 million on just trying to be competitive but still could not get a race point. I think these pro groups seem to be a lot harder to compete in then before.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
31........End of season standings
38 million..Current balance
MY GOAL: Well I have no driver but I do have a very strong car level. I will get myself a driver and train him up for maybe a push towards promotion next season. I expect to finish around mid table with maybe only 6 race points

R1 A1-Ring................16th...17th Took the riskier 2 stopper but fell short. Will extend my driver's contract though.
R2 Imola...................10th...14th My lap times were constantly in amongst the top 10, so that is all I want at the moment.
R3 Zolder..................12th...10th Downgraded the engine but still my best result this season.
R4 Estoril..................24th...13th One stopper was wrong, I just got too far back and could not overtake.
R5 Anderstorp...........15th...18th Yet another track that I just had a lot of trouble passing.
R6 Yas Marina...........11th...21st Disaster, second time this season I have now under fueled. You would think I would learn.
R7 Melbourne............13th...10th My best race of the season and only just missing out race points by 0.5s
R8 Kyalami.................9th...16th Good race bad race that is how this season has gone. This was a bad race.
R9 Sepang................13th....7th Good race! Rained the whole race and now I know my driver likes the wet. My first race points!
R10 Buenos Aires.......12th...12th Around the mark! I'm still building him up for next season.
R11 Brands Hatch.......11th...10th Just getting some good consistency now but still unfortunately just outside those race points.
R12 Brno.....................8th....9th And again getting a little bit closer to those race points.
R13 Spa.....................5th....15th Tried to do the race in 3 stops but fell just 2 laps short and missed out on those points.
R14 Montreal..............5th......8th Was sitting 4th for most of the race but cooling system broke late in the race.
R15 Shanghai............10th.....6th Best result of the season and a very good one stopper.
R16 Brasilia...............11th....15th Smoked last third of the race but it's not worth buying new parts.
R17 Sakhir.................6th......5th I raced with very low CT risks and it still gave me a good result.

SEASON 34
Previous season: The first season after promotion is always the hardest but I was able to retain rather easily in the end. Did spend some money to do this but now I do have a very good car level. Still just shy of 100M so not too bad.
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
1..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
16........End of season standings
90 million..Current balance
MY GOAL: Improve from my 16th place finish in the standings last season. This will be a challenge because I need a new driver after race 3. Feeling confident though.

R1 Adelaide.............31st.....10th A whiting start helped me a lot here but not expecting much until after R3.
R2 Paul Ricard..........17th....20th I stretched the tyres here but fell 3 laps short.
R3 Mexico City..........25th....23rd Random but last race with the current driver and was never in the hunt.
R4 Silverstone...........33rd....28th New driver and he looks like he may need plenty of training.
R5 Irungattukottai.....23rd....26th Arghhhh probably would have finished 8th but forgot to change the underbody.
R6 Istanbul..............27th....30th My new driver as 155 talent but does not like the wet?
R7 Anderstorp...........28th....25th Was using a fantasic strategy here but unfortunately the chassis let go with 10 laps to go.
R8 Valencia..............13th....11th Probably my best race of the season so far. My driver is slowly getting better.
R9 Slovakiaring.........23rd...26th First time race here and a guess on the part wear, in the end the suspension broke.
R10 Fuji...................22nd...23rd Impossible conditions here with the weather and in the end, too much rain for me.
R11 Ahvenisto..........13th....13th I felt my best race of the season but still I fall down the standings.
R12 Fiorana.............20th....22nd Whiting start, got the jump on the field but still went back through the field.
R13 Yas Marina........11th.....14th I am just not racing good enough, time to get myself a driver and prepare for the amateurs.
R14 Kaunas.............35th.....33rd Demotivation.
R15 Hungaroring......34th.....21st Demotivation.
R16 Laguna Seca.....32nd.....15th Demotivation.
R17 Poznan.............34th.....28th Demotivation. I got my driver down to 112 but is it enough?

SEASON 33
Previous season: Well I said I would finish 2nd and 2nd I did but only missed out by 1 point on top. A very good promotion season, the only negative is I was only able to win the one race.
87........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
1..........Wins
8..........On the dias
0..........Fastest laps
2........End of season standings
150 million..Current balance
MY GOAL: Retain? This group looks fairly hard and I now have to find myself a new driver. This could be a big challenge to just retain despite my healthy bank balance

R1 Suzuka.............34th....37th Random but still disappointing start to the season. Must upgrade car during the season.
R2 Sepang.............23rd....25th Much better result and will get stronger as the season progresses.
R3 Yeongam..........30th....20th Random again but luckily it was during a fuel stop. Whiting start really helped here.
R4 Zandvoort.........16th......9th It's amazing how quickly you can improve with some upgrades and testing.
R5 Barcelona..........28th....29th Just really lacked race pace here and was never in the hunt.
R6 Nurburgring.......26th....24th Just not competitive enough, time to upgrade my car I think.
R7 New Delhi..........23rd...32nd Random! The car broke with 10 laps still to go.
R8 Sakhir..............38th... 10th Great 1 stopper, passing 28 cars on the track.
R9 Yas Marina.......16th....22nd Improved the car but still lacking pace.
R10 Monaco............17th....12th Random! Tyre puncture on lap 19, oh what could have been.
R11 Magny Cours.....12th.....3rd Yes on the dais, perfect strategy and the perfect race. Season is now saved!
R12 Oesterreichring. 26th...26th GPRO did not forecast this much rain, one of my worst races ever!
R13 Austin...............27th...20th Still racing conservatively at the moment so no surprise with the result.
R14 Buenos Aires.....32nd...30th I chose to retire from this race early to save my parts.
R15 Interlagos.........19th...36th After 370 races my first start race accident!
R16 Mugello............24th.....5th At last some much need points and my season is saved!
R17 Bucharest Ring..30th.....7th Random! Still nice to finish the season with some points though.

SEASON 32
Previous season: Worked out perfectly, I wanted to finish 5th in the season ending standings and 5th I finished. I improved my driver stamina by 43 points and I made 28 million. A good season, it just would have been nice to win 1 race.
56........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
4..........On the dias
1..........Fastest laps
5........End of season standings
85 million..Current balance
MY GOAL: Promotion!!! I expect to finish the season in 2nd spot but I will be also looking at winning the championship but if I have to spend money to do this then I will back off. I want to promote into the pros with 110 Million! Whatever happens, I must finish in the top 4 as this is the last season with my driver.

R1 Hungaroring........5th....3rd A good start to a new season but was a bit frustrated at being blocked in my first stint.
R2 Brands Hatch.......3rd...2nd Damn! Pipped on the last lap.
R3 Jerez.................2nd....4th Strange race, really lacked race pace here and I don't really know why?
R4 Brasilia..............2nd....1st Winner! At last, nice to bounce back from a disappointing race last race.
R5 Laguna Seca......2nd....4th Random has cost me a place on the podium here.
R6 Bucharest Ring...2nd....3rd Another solid race, the winner is just unstoppable at the moment.
R7 Portimao............3rd....2nd Very consistent season, I still feel I am the second best.
R8 Anderstorp.........3rd....5th Just 1 too many pit stops.
R9 Kaunas..............3rd....2nd Brand new track and not too bad a result.
R10 Spa..................7th....4th Terrible, terrible, terrible strategy.
R11 Istanbul............6th....3rd Other drivers are getting better but I am still finishing with good results.
R12 Monza.............15th..11th Random did not help but I just seemed so slow on the hard tyres.
R13 Melbourne.........6th....5th Just cruising along at the moment, biding my time until promotion.
R14 Kyalami............6th....2nd A good race I am now through to the cup challenge final.
R15 Sepang............5th.....5th Another solid race but only 2 races left with my great current driver.
R16 Singapore....... 8th...17th Random! There goes my shot at winning this group.
R17 Shanghai........11th...22nd Didn't replace any parts. Just saving my money.

SEASON 31
Previous season: I was able to retain easily but I discover my drivers OA was getting too high and I had to work on reducing his motivation. I had to waste the last 5 races to do this, this I found very frustrating.
12........Championship points
0..........Pole positions
0..........Wins
0..........On the dias
1..........Fastest laps
12........End of season standings
57 million..Current balance
MY GOAL: I have now secured my driver for the next 2 season so this season I will just plod along and continue to train my driver. I do not want to promote this season but will find it hard not to as this group looks fairly easy. A lot of managers promoting from the rookies and only the 1 being relegated from the pros. Again though my main goal is to save money!

R1 Monte Carlo........10th.....7th A good solid start to the new season. Not racing with too high risks yet.
R2 Zolder.................5th....25th Didn't expect that much rain and went in with totally wrong set-up.
R3 Interlagos...........3rd......7th Tyres did not quite last but still happy with the result.
R4 Indianapolis Oval.8th......8th One stopper should have worked but underfilled my first stint.
R5 Montreal.............4th......8th Engine just didn't quite go the distance.
R6 Adelaide.............5th......7th Perfect race, perfect strategy, he will just get better over time.
R7 New Delhi............5th.....4th Best result so far this season and he certainly loves the wet. 60CT risks too high!
R8 Yas Marina..........8th.....4th Another wet race and another good performance. 40CT better.
R9 Valencia.............7th....13th Tried hard for 2 stopper on extra softs but this was impossible.
R10 Suzuka..............4th.....4th Suspension broke with 2 laps to go, costing me a place on the podium.
R11 Imola................5th.....8th Tried again for a 2 stopper but only just missed out.
R12 Poznan..............2nd.....5th Blocked badly during my first stint and never really recovered.
R13 Silverstone.........5th....12th A good race in the wet, it was just the wing broke late that cost me points.
R14 Paul Ricard.........5th....2nd My best result of the season, all looking good for next season's push.
R15 Brno..................3rd.....3rd Perfect strategy and the best I could have done here.
R16 Ahvenisto...........4th....2nd Not getting too far away now from my first win in over 2 seasons.
R17 Hockenheim.......5th.....3rd End of a good season, next season should be great.

SEASON 30
Previous season: Well this season worked out better than I thought. Easily my best season and my driver gained a lot on concentration and stamina. Only disappointment was only 5 wins from 12 pole starts was not very good but my driver is always improving. Promotion to Amateurs!!!
114.....Championship points
12.......Pole positions
5........Wins
12......On the dias

30 milion..Current balance
MY GOAL: I have checked out my opposition and feel quietly confident that I can retain my spot for this season for maybe a push towards promotion the following season. Again though I wont be spending much money on my car to increase my car levels because I feel I can still finish in the top 20 with my car level at 5. I might go to 6 depending on how I start. I expect to finish the season 13th.

R1 Fuji.....................31st.....17th Tried 1 stopper on hards but in hindsight 2 stopper on mediums would have been better.
R2 Sepang.................9th.....16th Not too bad but got held up badly towards the end.
R3 Yas Marina...........20th....17th Time to start increasing my car level to 6.
R4 Monte Carlo.........20th.....14th Car is getting better now after every race, good 1 stopper.
R5 Monza.................14th.....22nd Tried 2 stopper on ES but just fell a few laps short of the perfect strategy.
R6 Hungaroring.........14th......4th Increased my CT risk from 30 to 60. Didn't stop for the rain.
R7 Silverstone...........28th....23rd Wet and dry race but just did not count on so many wet laps.
R8 Shanghai.............26th......8th Good 1 stopper but did mess up my wet to dry conversion in Q2.
R9 Singapore............14th......6th He just keeps getting better and now getting quite confident about next season.
R10 Sakir..................26th......6th Another good 1 stopper and maintaining consistency.
R11 Mexico City.........11th.....17th A tyre puncture with 6 laps to go really ruined probably a 7th place finish.
R12 Laguna Seca.......10th.....16th Incorrect fuel loads and an extra pitstop was required.
R13 Buenos Aires........4th.....23rd Tried to lower my drivers motivation but it did not work!
R14 Zandvoort...........34th....29th Lowered motivation by 50 but I need to lower it more.
R15 Portimao............32nd....26th Tried same strategy as above but motivation didnt drop?????
R16 Barcelona...........27th....28th Same strategy again, this time driver OA dropped by 3. Your guess for the last race?
R17 Kyalami..............2nd.....24th Everything set up nicely now to push hard for the next 2 seasons.

SEASON 29
Previous season: Done everything I wanted to do. Never really was going to win a race but consistently in amongst the points. Spent the whole season on yoga training to improve concentration.
63.....Championship points
1.....Pole positions
0.....Wins
3.....On the dias
1.....Fastest laps
5....End of season standings
35 milion..Current balance
MY GOAL: Time for promotion!! Push hard and try and make the top 3 in every race. Also try not to overspend and end the season with as much money as possible. It's all about not finishing top with the best car but to get yourself promoted with an average car, hence more money taken with you to the amateurs.

R1 Buenos Aires..........1st.....3rd Pole starter but winner was far too good. Still good result for opening race.
R2 Brasilia..................6th....2nd Bold strategy, staying out in the rain with dry tires. Nearly got me the win.
R3 Indianapolis...........1st.....8th Wrong strategy, one too many pit stops.
R4 Montreal................1st.....1st Winning from pole! Fantastic but only just got there with 1 liter left in the tank.
R5 Valencia................3rd.....1st Another win, excellent! Must learn to put more fuel in again only 1 liter left.
R6 Fiorano.................2nd....2nd A little frustrating just pipped for pole and race win by a stronger car.
R7 Zolder..................16th....1st Best win of my career! Messed up qualifying but made up with good strategy.
R8 Paul Ricard.............1st....3rd Started pole but don't know why car did not have any race pace at all.
R9 Istanbul.................1st.....4th Slightly wrong conversion and also filled up fuel 5 litres short.
R10 Nurburgring...........1st....2nd Winners car is a lot stronger than mine probably best result possible.
R11 Anderstorp............1st.....3rd Bad start from 1st to 6th after lap 1 then played catchup.
R12 Yas Marina............1st.....5th 3 litres of fuel short, last lap stop. Would have finished 2nd.
R13 Sepang................1st.....1st Perfect strategy, just went with the ES tyres and was able to get a winning break.
R14 Irungattukottai......1st.....8th A very poorly planned fuel strategy.
R15 Yeongam..............3rd.... 1st The only one to do 1 stopper and it worked out perfectly for me.
R16 Suzuka................1st.....3rd Tried the 1 stopper here maybe in hindsight the 2 stopper on mediums was better.
R17 Melbourne............1st....6th Totally messed up fuel loads! Cannot make these simple mistakes in Amateurs.

SEASON 28
Previous season: Well below expectations! Probably my worst season. Really struggled with money and I just could not improve the car hence motivation fell away and my driver was never really competitive.
0.....Championship points
0.....Pole positions

MY GOAL: The reset and a new driver, so a season of training. I doubt very much if I will push for promotion this season. I will continue to build him up with the hope of carrying him through to the rankings.

R1 Sakhir..................8th......7th First race as rookie for a long time and not to unhappy with a good 7th.
R2 Yas Marina...........7th.....11th Wrong strategy! 10 litres of fuel short in the end and tyres could not do the 3 stopper.
R3 Singapore.............8th.......6th Very steady at the moment, it is all about training my inexperienced driver.
R4 Irungattukottai......4th.......5th Fastest lap and the best of the 3 stoppers.
R5 Fuji......................16th......5th So many different strategies here but I feel good about my 1 stopper.
R6 Interlagos.......... 13th..... 5th Racing very consistent now and it's all pointing towards next season.
R7 Indianapolis Oval.12th......4th Engine breaker! Smoked last 20 laps but was still able to finish.
R8 Montreal...............5th.....12th Stuffed up the strategy and ran out of fuel twice.
R9 Adelaide...............8th.......9th An average race, I just got badly blocked at the start and never really caught up.
R10 Kyalami..............2nd......3rd Only just missed pole and whiting start proved to be a winner.
R11 Spa....................1st......5th POLE but slightly disappointed that I couldn't remain on the dais.
R12 A1 Ring..............7th......5th Very consistent now, although nowhere near winning this season.
R13 Magny Cours.......5th......5th Another solid race and more points.

R17 Hockenheim........5th.....2nd My best finish but I did benefit from the smoking cars around me.

SEASON 27
Previous season: Well below expectations! I think badyear tyres were possibly not the way to go, I just ran out of money mid season and then had to just race conservatively

MY GOAL: New driver, so a season of training. I hope to snag a few race points towards the end of the season but at the moment it's all about training and saving!

R1 Bucharest.........21st.....15th Promising start and things should improve as we go through the season.
R2 Zolder..............14th.....18th Three litres of fuel short in the end cost me five places.
R3 Monza..............24th.....18th Risks too high, hence extra softs fell two laps short of going the distance.
R4 Anderstorp........33rd.....19th Saving some parts and raced with low risks. But I just could not overtake.
R5 Paul Ricard.......34th.....19th Wet race! New driver doesn't like water maybe risks could be higher. 20/10/50.
R6 Brands Hatch....16th.....10th It's good to be racing competitive again. See if I can maintain this form.
R7 Singapore..........8th.....16th At last I do a good qualifying time but run out of fuel with 2 laps to go.

R9 Barcelona.........26th.....21st Tried 1 stopper, no good. Really starting to struggle now.
R10 Melbourne.......26th.....10th My best race of the season, maybe I can still save this season yet.
R11 Suzuka...........24th.....20th Random! Driver wanted to replace the steering wheel.
R12 Shanghai........30th.....18th I am just starting too far back to be a serious contender.
R13 Yeongam........23rd.....12th Whiting start proved a winner after 2 laps but driver hates rain.
R14 Laguna Seca...29th.....24th Whiting start did not work this time and I fell way back into the pack.
R15 Mexico City.....23rd.....18th Looks like relegation coming up, not expecting too much with the remaining races.
R16 Interlagos.......33rd....18th These last 2 races are nothing. Reset is now all set up for next season.
R17 New Delhi........26th....11th Good result result but there was a lot of smoking cars out there.

R6 Irungattukottai.27th......17th Wrong strategy again!
R7 Fuji.................32nd......18th Probably a two stopper instead of the one.
R8 Nurburgring......28th......18th I did everything right here but I'm just nowhere near being competitive enough.
R9 Brno................29th......24th Random on lap 17 destroyed any chance of finishing high.
R10 Hungaroring....30th......17th Mid table again, just can't do too much because of lack of money.
R11 Oesterreichring.28th.....13th A sloid 1 stopper in the rain, better result because of the badyear tyres.
R12 Yas Marina.......20th.....23rd Rain stopped and started, a tough race on strategy.
R13 Indianapo.Oval.27th......5th What a surprise! Didn't expect this result but will certainly take it. Great 1 stopper on the badyears.
R14 Buenos Aires....21st......7th Racing well, more points but must start saving soon.
R15 Monza.............20th......3rd Wow another good finish, I think everyone else has started to back off already.
R16 Magny Cours...22nd....16th Not too bad a result considering I am now racing with 0 risks.
R17 Spa................19th.....19th Last race, smoking car.

R10 Monte Carlo......26th.....17th Very poor qualifying and I just could not get around the backmarkers.
R11 Indianapolis.Ov.35th......18th Don't know why all of a sudden he can't qualify?

R13 Kyalami...........17th.......6th Excellent, a few more race points.
R14 Adelaide..........24th.......5th Good result again making up many places.

R3 Brno.................10th......27th New driver. Great qualifying but got hit by a random then stop starting rain.

R6 Monte Carlo......34th......16th Much better, now at least I am heading in the right direction.
R7 Hungaroring......14th.......6th Great result, might just be enough to consolidate my position with the pros next season.

R15 Brasilia............10th.....10th Disappointing! Probably fell about 5 litres short of fuel and extra pitstop made.

R17 Montreal..........20th.......6th Came home strong, a nice way to finish the season.

SEASON 22

R17 Mexico City......18th Couldn't secure a good driver on time. Disappointing finish..
