    F1 2017 Career / #1 Driver for Sauber

    20171225183116_1

    Pre-Race
    This is the last race of the 2017 season and I'm looking forward to taking a short break at seasons end. To date, the season has been an overwhelming success and I've only finished outside of the top 15 four times. Unfortunately, two of those came in the previous two races and my driver reputation has taken a massive hit. Plus, it didn't help that I lost the head-to-head battle against Romain GROSJEAN. In hindsight, I should never have been competing against GROSJEAN, because in the real world, the Sauber isn't very good.

    Most of my success can be attributed to starting the season with a difficulty level that was too low, but I was simply making an educated guess at the time. Right now I'm at 85% and this seems to be a happy medium between my actual skill level, a more realistic expectation of the Sauber F1 team, and keeping it fun without it becoming a grind. However, now that I'm on the verge of completing my first full season, I'm going to be fully focused on improving the car from here on out. As the car improves, I will monitor my progress and increase the difficulty level as necessary. Also, I now have a new rival, Stoffel VANDOORNE.

    Practice
    I completed all my practice objectives in the first two sessions, but I was really struggling to get the car on pace. Midway through the final practice, I decided to scrap my setup completely and started over with my SPA setup as base. I was immediately quicker and after a couple minor tweaks, finished practice with a lot of confidence. I'm not sure I'll have the pace to get out of Q1, but the car is a lot better than it was at Mexico and Brazil, so I'm cautiously optimistic.
