It really is amazing how every retirement seems to hit Massa's car. He seems to be faster in the races too.

Like I said before, cars will be more reliable next season. Only three more races to suffer for Felipe.

Even more extreme example is McLaren. Alonso has three retirements while his team mates have 8 combined. There's been some errors that have lead to those retirements but many mechanical ones too.

Mad how it's working out like that. Feel for BAR though, that's some rotten luck


Yeah, BAR has been hit hard. I get the feeling the reborn Arrows is Calligari's baby though ;-) Not that it's been easy for them either.

Oh btw, would you be up for making a new livery for them since they'll be staying as Arrows? I used a fantasy livery for this season and it would be a bit boring to use the same one for next season too. Maybe for Jaguar too as 2004 was their last season before turning into Red Bull. Calligaris and Mr Rigu could give some ideas for coloring and such.

There's no rush or anything as we still have three races to go and there'll be a bit of a break between seasons too.

I can look into it and see what I can do. I'm not majorly experienced with car painting though. Does that mean Red Bull aren't taking anyone over for next season?


Yeah, Red Bull offered to buy Arrows but they turned it down. Since Jaguar is in good financial health and they've been pretty succesful I won't be changing it. They'll probably look into buying their way in for 2006 next season.

Are there others who could help with the graphical side? We would need those two cars and helmets for new drivers and for drivers changing teams.

As always, any help would be greatly appreciated :-)
I might be able to paint the car liveries, for the helmets, I am not good enough with helmet painting




McLaren

Good return to the podium for Fernando - In 4 races, Jarno has only completed one :(

2005 helmets WIP



Does anyone have a copy of Lotterer's and Wheldon's helmet, please?


Looking real nice! Do you still have Wheldon's helmet file I sent you? If not, I can send it to you again tomorrow.

Hey thanks for updating the lineups John, been absent for some days for personal reasons ^^.

P.S.: Sorry, didn't think Arrows staying would cause a livery complication, worst case scenario you could just keep this season model (after all if Super Aguri did it in 2006 ^^...)
I'll think about a solution in the meantime.

Talk to Parachki about what colors and car shape you want and lets see what he can do. We can also use the old livery or you can choose some Arrows livery that's already available.
For what comes to jaguar livery it can look same as 2004. I think that 2005 Red Bull car shape would suite best for that. :-)

The Arrows livery can be a fantasy one, incorporating the pay-drivers' sponsors, as in real life, a big company like Orange wouldn't sponsor a crap team for a long time. The Jaguar livery will obviously have a lot less changes, but there can be some new sponsors to spice up the car a bit.

I don't, no. Also, there's a Lotterer helmet on GP4Forever. Is anyone able to download it and send me it please? Jorge banned me from there because we had an argument on this site ;)


Ferrari

Montoya again on pole, this time we hope he doesn't throw it in the bin. Kimi's starting position is worrying us Sato might not be able to catch him if he has a bad start




Toyota

A fantastic qualifying session!

Jordan

Not good for us. We definitely need a switch in engine supplier.


McLaren

Got some work to do in the race, gonna be a tight run until the end of the season
