OOR Round 7 Round Up – Canada Update
Written by SWO Fail
After a huge 7 weeks of fantastic racing we’ve finally made it to the first mid-season break and it’s a great time to see how things are shaping up across all of the tiers so far. We’ll be taking a look at the overall constructors championship, highlighting the battles in Oceania Tier 1 and the big movers in round 7.
All Tiers Constructors’ Championship
Despite Renault’s incredible consistency, Red Bull and Ferrari remain right in the fight for the top spot, driven by great results in Spain and Azerbaijan respectively with the top three being separated by less than 50 points.
Further down the order the fight for 6th place is really heating up with Haas, Force India and McLaren separated by a mere 10 points! After two great weekends in a row for Force India from Oceania Tier 2 and Asia Tier 1 they look poised to take hold of 6th place in the constructors after round 8.
Finally, a look at Williams who after a slow start to the season have seen a huge resurgence due in part to the ‘Tony effect’.
Oceania Tier 1 Drivers’ Championship
Oceania Tier 1 is in full swing and we’ve already seen some incredible battles between the top drivers in OOR. After 7 rounds we’re still no closer to determining who will prevail and win the championship.
Defending champ Luke23 heads out the field, however, after streaking ahead at the start of the season, the rest of the pack is right back in it! Some huge performances from Jiddybit, StiggyButt and Suma after round 4 show that we’re in for an exciting season in Oceania Tier 1 and it’s still anyone’s to win.
Round 7 Movers and Shakers
Let’s have a look at some of the big performers this week who’ve made huge leaps in championship standing and points finishes. A big congratulations to Brez, Trogster, Mos97, Foxtrox and AtomicLukai all of whom smashed their previous 3 races performance in Canada, scoring a large percentage of their total points last round.
Lastly, shoutout to those who’ve made the biggest gains in their respective championships after the race in Canada, jumping well up the order.
The Coming Weeks
Over the next weeks we should start getting some indication of how the rest of the season will pan out as we approach the midpoint of the championship. We’ll be looking to see if Red Bull and Ferrari can reel in the dominant Renault and how each of the driver’s championships are shaking out. Look forward to some incredibly close battles in each of the tiers as we head into the European rounds with a great mix of tracks to catering to the differing strengths of all the drivers.
Good luck and good racing!
