Feature driver series: Slizzer


Atomic F1 speaks with one of our newest drivers Slizzer in our next installment of our new monthly driver feature.
Q: What's the most memorable win for you in online racing, and why?
That would most definitely have to be in iRacing. My first win there came way back in 2010 in an old Legends 34' Coupe at Lanier. I was leading most of the race after jumping a few spots at the start, but me & the guy in second were constantly battling for the lead. Eventually I came out ahead, passing him on the second last lap to win by -00.384 seconds. Best. Win. Ever.
Q: Describe your driving and racing style:
My driving style would be quite aggressive especially when chasing down an opponent. Sometimes I know I'm not the quickest guy out on thet track, but that doesn't mean I will just give up the position easily. I tend to put the attacking driver in a position where I am the decision maker. I choose where he positions his car on the track. This allows me to counter-pass most of the time, thus holding the position for a little while longer. Race starts is where I become the opportunist, I can't stand to watch others' just hold back and play it safe. This isn't to say holding back and playing it safe is bad, it's just not fastest way to do it.
Q: What's your all-time favourite turn (or sequence) of the current tracks:
My favourite sequence of turns would have to be the swimming pool at Monaco.
Q: As above, but which do you hate the most, and why:
The turn I hate most probably has to be turn 13 at China, in the dry it's hard enough to keep the car stable through there, let alone the wet. It's so frustrating going through there in the wet, you just want to apply full revs & power, but doing so will most likely result in a spin.
Q: You must choose a city for a new Formula One street circuit - which city, anywhere in the world, do you choose, and why?
I'd probably have to go with Sydney's City. Although not practical, how spectacular would it be seeing Formula One cars flying across the Harbour Bridge at 320kph!
Q: If you could choose one former world champion as your team mate, who would you choose and why?
I would choose Ayrton Senna, just to see how many seconds a lap he would be faster than me ;P
Q: Formula One innovations of the past - ground effect, active suspension, turbocharging, six wheels, the list goes on. If you could bring back one past innovation, what would it be and why?
TURBOCHARGERS, THEY ARE THE MOST POWERFUL AND MOST AMAZING ENGINES EVER USED IN A RACING CAR IUJAKDBFGUJKBGKJB!!!b!B2B11B!````
Q: What current Formula One regulation would you most like to change and why?
I would like to get rid of the use of KERS/DRS & the pirelli tires, these make the races 'interesting', but also removes the pure driving and pure racing from the sport, ie: drivers slowing down to conserve their tires for 20 laps.
Q: If you could pick two Formula One greats of the past (from different eras) to watch race against each other, who would you pick?
Easily the Senna - Prost.
Q: Just 19 of the worlds motor racing circuits feature on the current Atomic F1 calendar. You can add one more. Which circuit do you pick and why?
I choose Bathurst, one of the worlds best motor racing tracks.
Q: You are having a dinner party and can invite four people from the world of motorsport, past or present. Who do you invite?
Aynton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Jack Brabham & my Dad, so he too can enjoy their presence :3 [My Dad & I race karts occasionally, so he does technically count]
