Round Seventeen: Japan -LAST ROUND! WOOHOOO!!!
Note: if any one of the title contenders wants to PM me his/her guesses, I'm all for it :)

Simple rules: just submit your guess for what the pole time will be, and who you think will take pole. Deadline: post/edit before the start of first free practice.
Here are the scoring rules.
Current standings are here

-----------------------------------------------------
Background info for Japan:

2001 pole: M Schumacher; 1'32.484
2000 pole: M Schumacher; 1'35.825
1999 pole: M Schumacher; 1'37.470

2002 so far:

*Australia pole time of 1'25.843 was 1.049 seconds faster than, or 98.793% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'26.892.

*Malaysia pole time of 1'35.266 was 0.046 seconds SLOWER than, or 100.048% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'35.220.

*Brazil pole time of 1'13.114 was 0.666 seconds faster than, or 99.097% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'13.780.

*Austria pole time of 1'08.082 was 1.480 seconds faster than, or 97.872% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'09.562.

*Monaco pole time of 1'16.676 was 0.754 seconds faster than, or 99.026% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'17.430.

*Canada pole time of 1'12.836 was 2.946 seconds faster than, or 96.113% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'15.782 (track slightly modified for 2002)

*Europe pole time of 1'29.906 was 14.946 seconds slower than, or 119.939% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'14.960 (track "slightly" modified for 2002, useless comparison eh)

*British pole time of 1'18.998 was 1.449 seconds faster than, or 98.199% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'20.447

*French pole time of 1'11.985 was 1.004 seconds faster than, or 98.624% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'12.989

*Germany pole time of 1'14.389 was 23.728 seconds faster than, or 75.817% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'38.117 (track heavily modified for 2002, totally useless comparison)

*Hungarian pole time of 1'13.333 was 0.726 seconds faster than, or 99.020% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'14.059

*Belgian pole time of 1'43.726 was 8.346 seconds faster than, or 92.553% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'52.072

*Italian pole time of 1'20.264 was 1.952 seconds faster than, or 97.626% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'22.216

*USA pole time of 1'10.790 was 0.918 seconds faster than, or 98.720% of, the 2001 pole time: 1'11.708
------------------------------------------------------

My guess for Japan is 1'31.135 by Michael Schumacher.

Good luck!

No, I just don't see the FW24 performance close to the F2002.

Schumacher .5 secs faster in the first sector, another .2 in the second sector but The Human Shield is 10 seconds quicker in the 3rd sector, the spiritual sector. :smoking: :up:

Oh, ffs. I went back to compare the time to my guess.. there's a typo in my guess :mad:

Meant to write 1:31.666, not 1:32.666 (they're not going to be slower this year...)

Ah, doesn't matter, won't change a thing anyway :|
