Will Plus One get into F1RWRS in 2016?

Remeber that Plus One is only third in the waiting list, behind Donkervoort (this), but it still could be possible. Thoughts? Pasta maldonado 20:10, 30 July 2012 (EST)

Short answer: No. Long answer: Bathplug no. :P
Seriously though, you are not second on the waiting list. Salamander's ahead of you on the list as well and with the last of the great team 'purges' complete, I suspect the entry list will be far more stable for years to come. And on that basis, I consider this officially jossed. Wizzie 20:34, 30 July 2012 (EST)
Well, that makes us 3rd then, and with that news, I don't fancy us making it until the end of the decade Pasta maldonado 20:10, 30 July 2012 (EST)
You're still doing better than me, IIRC I'm fourth or fifth on the list, and Aerond's been talking about reducing the number of entries. And there's still guys behind me as well... Nuppiz 22:05, 30 July 2012 (EST)
I believe you're fifth on the list Nuppiz. Don't worry about the entries thing as the F1RTA will probably end up screaming blue murder if any changes are made. Wizzie 21:16, 30 July 2012 (EST)

Aston Martin to buy out ArrowTech in 2016

Let's cut to the chase. Compared to 2013, 2014 was a relative disappointment for the team and, despite merging with the cash-strapped but promising Acuri Autosport squad for 2015, they're not as financially sound as many other teams on the grid. They were forced to let Mignolet go to DGNgineering and in his place, they were forced to sign a pay driver in Al-Faisel. Meanwhile, Aston Martin, fresh off their 2014 F2RWRS success and having signed Hydook and Jones Racing as customers for 2015, are looking at entering the F1RWRS in the near future and the Fox has been seen in the Aston Martin garage many times during pre-season testing, allegedly to keep track of Tomo Kazama's performance as Bosevic's potential successor at ArrowTech. Put two and two together and, both from a financial and a competitive standpoint, such a move would make sense for both parties. Wizzie 11:10, 12 August 2012 (EST)

Although they were forced to sign Al Faisal, he is one of the best pay drivers around, although he's no match for Mignolet. Maybe Aston Martin's entry into the F1RWRS will start a landslide of manufacturer involvement? Pasta maldonado 16:40, 16 August 2012 (EST)
That reminds me, I have a plan for Autodynamics in 2016 that could be relevant to this. Wait and see. (EuroBrun)
The only reason why ArrowTech didn't get a contract with Mignolet was because Dagnall made an offer first and quickly signed with them. Although they did have to resort to signing Al-Faisal to a contract, it makes absolute sense as he brings a boatload of money to the team. Who would refuse an offer from someone walking into your factory and offering free money on the basis that he gets the second seat? And unless the F2RWRS goes into a managerial mess and/or Aston takes everyone to the cleaners, I doubt they will enter the F1RWRS. (Isn't the waiting list a mile long anyways?)

I'll call this jossed since ArrowTech is the 4th richest team on the grid, behind MRT, DGN and Sunshine. I think I'm done here. Jeremy 09:28, 20 August 2012 (EST)
Except of course that being rich prior to the market opening means bugger all. Now that there are about 5 or 6 top-line engines all of which can be competitive enough to win races, it will instead become the best developed team on the grid who will win, and that means having a lot of credits left during the season to spend on upgrades. This is why I believe Gillet will be the team to beat. ArrowTech have a lot of re-building to do, and that's going to be hard with just 1000 credits. AndreaModa 03:40, 21 August 2012 (EST)
Well, at least ArrowTech won't get bought out by Aston Martin! Jeremy 03:42, 21 August 2012 (EST)

Van Dycke did a "gender flip" surgery

That explains why Van Dycke suddenly became a woman in RoLFS. FMecha 23:50, 28 August 2012 (EST)

I thought it was already acknowledged that Van Dycke was a transy? Jeremy 08:21, 30 August 2012 (EST)

F1CC - what was it actually?

I'm currently doing the pages for the F1CC, and a discussion at the first WMG came to the conclusion that the F1CC was actually a championship between F1RWRS drivers and guest drivers, with the others being normal people who stumbled on the server. I've got a suggestion relative to that third group of people who only appeared in this series. Instead of just stumbling on the series, how about the idea that the F1RWRS actually had a contest, where if you managed to connect to the server (a difficult task), you had the right to compete with the big boys, with the first few accepting the deal competing in the championship against the big boys?

Additionally, the video-game theory explains the fact that Roda was pure crap in only this championship: he has absolutely zero skill at computer games. Tommykl 22:28, 3 September 2012 (EST)

Or Roda could just be trolling everyone by pretending to be crap. ~EuroBrun~

Daniel Melrose willingly lets someone else have the 2nd MRT seat since he knows that he is utterly crap

The Fox

Predictions for the new season...

Post any specific predictions that you want to make for the 2015 F1RWRS season. Here is the thread that was used to guess the order of the teams/drivers for 2015. I'll start with:

This is coming from the team manager himself, so the odds are good... Jeremy 12:06, 13 September 2012 (EST)

SuperAguri's unnamed series was Barii Mori's personal series

Similar to "F1CC = LAN game" theory, but in this case, SuperAguri's series was just Barii Mori's personal series that he would run on GP2 on his computer when he (Mori) have spare time. FMecha 04:39, 23 September 2012 (EST)
