F1 2020 can create the perfect timeline.

Sebastian Vettel retired after season 2, so that brought in Tonio to partner Charles Leclerc.


Poor Hubert, gone to soon.

That made me realize that I meant to sign Hubert in my next F1 2020 season but I forgot when I got F1 2021. Gotta redownload it onto my Xbox now.

I hope he and Charles combine to win every race for that season.

I miss the lad. He had a promising start to his early career.

I wonder if he would've made it to the top.

I had only been watching for about half a season at that point, but from my limited knowledge, he looked like he could have gone far. Who knows, I guess…

There's this table in the music classroom at my school with a lot of writing on it. People wrote their names, some messages to other classes, and a whole bunch of other stuff dating all the way back to 2012.

So naturally, here's what i wrote on it:

I cannot understate how insane Kvyat’s AI was in that game. I signed him for my season 2 and 3 cars (which were both about 3rd best on the grid) with only Spec 2 Driver improvement and he was almost unstoppable. To date, he’s the only AI to beat me in a Drivers championship, embarrassing me in a winner take all at Abu Dhabi. (I keep the AI around a level where it’s difficult, but not impossible to win)

Ditto for Nyck De Vries, who I coincidentally dropped Kvyat for (and for some reason Kyvat decided Williams was better than a Merc seat). I consistently had to turn my AI difficulty down as when I had it on my normal setting, De Vries would finish every race in 1st, over a pit stop ahead. I switched to the new game before the end of that season, but it was almost certain that De Vries would have won the championship.

TL;DR. Kvyat and De Vries’ ais are insane.

You changed your drivers around, i've stuck with Jack Aitken in my second seat for the last three seasons (well, two and a half, i duffed it with money at the halfway re-sign mark for drivers in Season 2 and had to run with De Vries for the second half. I like Jack Aitken too much).

De Vries was great, and tbh i just decided to go full wingman for him in most races because i was bored. I do the same thing with Aitken, and he's currently in the lead of the Driver's championship. De Vries went to Williams to partner Latifi.

Kvyat has gotten more podiums in season 3 than Valtteri Bottas (and he's still at Mercedes because George Russell went to Red Bull), 2 to Bottas's 1.

Aitken is currently running at a rating of 87 with Spec 3 everything in Personnel (Simulator, Fitness Center and Analysis Suite), with the second best car on the grid (it goes Mercedes, Bobcat, and then Red Bull).

we finally gave america a f1 team they can actually be proud of lol

Driving as a wingman wasn’t something I’ve ever thought of but sounds like fun. My current F1 2021 team (which is basically a pink version of Team Penske) is in its 3rd season and has Bottas (wanted Raikkonen, but he retired) as my teammate. I’m about to finish my current season, so I’ll have to give 2nd Driver a try so he can hopefully win a WDC for once.

This Sunday is going to be possibly the best day for watching racing this year:

At 9:00 AM EST is the Monaco GP

At 1:00 PM EST is the Indy 500 (which I’m going to be at this weekend!) grin

At 6:00 PM EST is the Coca-Cola 600.

Going to be a great day to enjoy some good racing.

OK so I thought I would give this a little update if anyone cares simply because of the... well... puzzling move Mercedes made in my offseason. The season prior, I had stolen Bottas from the team and Merc had brought in Alonso to give Hamilton PTSD of 2007. However, going into my new season, Alonso decided to retire from Formula One, leaving a seat at Merc open.

Mercedes decided to go straight to Haas for their next driver instead of going to a midfield team despite having the 2nd best car on the grid. Now you may find yourself thinking "Schumacher would do great in that Merc seat, what's the problem?" The problem is, Merc didn't sign Schumacher. They signed Mazepin. tears of joy

Can't wait until my expectations for Mazepin are shattered and he beats me for a win in the season opener.

Zhou came up from F2 to take the seat. The grid as a whole got quite jumbled by some big moves (me signing Ocon in season 2, signing Bottas in season 3, Merc signing Alonso, Alonso retiring, Vettel Retiring, Raikkonen retiring are the one i remember) so now we have such oddities as Aitken at Alpine consistently outperforming his teammate Gasly, Russell and Tsunoda fighting for wins with AlphaTauri, Williams and Aston Martin finessing podiums (Ocon and Ghiotto for Williams, Ilott for Aston Martin), and Alfa Romeo struggling to finish above P20 with Gio and Latifi.

That's a stark contrast from my 2020 save.

Bobcat Autosport: (NAME REDACTED) and Jack Aitken
Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas
Red Bull: Max Verstappen and George Russell
McLaren: Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz
Renault: Daniel Ricciardo and Esteban Ocon
Ferrari: Charles Leclerc and Anthoine Hubert
Racing Point: Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll
Alpha Tauri: Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly
Haas: Romain Grosjean and Alexander Albon
Alfa Romeo: Antonio Giovinazzi and Kevin Magnussen
Williams: Nicholas Latifi and Nyck De Vries

Most of this is very similar. Kimi and Seb retired, and that's it.

Poor Albon, even in video games he gets demoted from Red Bull.

So apparently there’s a new scary disease out there called Monkey pox.

When my one friend told me about it, I though this was something from the Babylon bee or something like that, but I looked it up and it’s actually a thing.

Give it a few months and we’ll be back in lockdown lol.

The funniest part about it is that LGBT people are supposedly more prone to it.
