F1 2014 Championship
SEPANG - MALAYSIA REVIEW
The second race of the 2014 Calender took place at Sepang Malaysia yesterday. Once again the race didn't go as smoothly as would have been liked. Veteran driver Dewald Nel showed up - hoping to bring an end to Samuel Tingle's winning streak. But a mid race incident with Red Bull driver Marius Schoeman saw Dewald retire the race with 16 laps to go.
Another controversy was the disqualification of lotus driver Rickus Klue due to a problem with the race starting procedure. A decision is pending whether or not he should be handed points based on his starting position. Yet another upset was the absence of Mercedes driver Gert Snyman who is currently experiencing a serious case of domestic diarrhea. Nobody knows when or if he'll be back.
Podium finishers were - Marussia driver Samuel Tingle in First place with a fastest lap of 1:34.700, Lotus driver Eugene van Loggerenberg was second and Ferrari driver Lionel Klue was third.
The start was a bit cleaner than Melbourne, with the exception of Rickus Klue's car being placed on the grid out of position, & ultimately getting him disqualified before the race even started - the incident is being investigated by the Stewards and a possible point return may be rewarded based on his starting possition. Rudolph Mare took forever to get his McLaren off the line whilst new comer Devon Phayre seemed to have it all under control. Considering that this was his very first Sim-Racing experience, the fact that he finished the race at all, means that he is certainly one to watch as the season progresses.
An epic battle between Sim-Racing League champions Dewald Nel & Samuel Tingle lasted throughout the race and they swapped 1st place on several occasions. A late incident involving Red bull driver Marius Schoeman resulted in Dewald Nel's retirement from the race. A possible penalty is forth coming.
Next race Friday 7 March 2014. Bahrain. 57 laps, tyre set 5 (Medium & Hard)
