The 2016 Formula Virtual season was the fourth season of the Formula Virtual World Championship. The series is a virtual motor racing championship run by Nic Morley for members of the F1 Fanatic website and is recognised by the Formula Virtual Association (FVA) governing body as the highest class of competition for virtual motor racing. Teams and drivers participated in eighteen V-Prix's starting in Australia on 12 June and finishing in Brazil on 18 December as they competed for the World Drivers' and World Constructors' championships.

The 2016 season saw the grid expand to twenty-six cars with the addition of North Star while FIRST and Holmqvist replaced Lucas and Rossi respectively, the latter being announced just weeks before the season started. The calendar similarly expanded, with the Dutch V-Prix going ahead after problems meant the race did not run in 2015, and Turkey also joining the calendar with Bahrain returning too, at the expense of the South African round.

Elroy Wagner started the season as the defending Drivers' Champion after winning his first World Championship title at the 2015 Chinese V-Prix. His team, Franklin, started the season as the defending Constructors' Champion, having secured their third championship title at the 2015 Mexican V-Prix; however both were eliminated from contention in their respective championships following the Bahrain V-Prix, with Enrique Ruiz also being knocked out of contention following the United States V-Prix - marking the first time in Formula Virtual history that Franklin did not take either title.

Adrien Simon won his first World Drivers' Championship title in the final race of the season. He overcame a five-point lead held by his rookie team mate Olen Inman - who secured his maiden victory at the British V-Prix - by winning from pole position while Inman could only manage second place, and therefore claimed his maiden championship by two points. Johan Halvosen - who also scored his maiden victory at the season opening Australian V-Prix - finished third in the championship, a further sixty-two points behind.

As a result of their 1-2 in the Drivers' Championship, DS Mathershaw won their first Constructors' Championship at the Mexican V-Prix and ended the season with 484 points, 149 ahead of Meteor and 202 clear of third-placed FUN, who pipped Franklin in the final round of the season.

Team changes

  • A tender was opened early in 2015 for a thirteenth team to join the series. Teams that applied for the slot included FV2 teams Holmqvist, North Star Racing, Phoenix Motorsport, Formation Competition and FIRST Motorsport, while Spectre Motorsport and SEAT Sport Lukoil also applied. FIRST Motorsport were granted the spot using Ford engines[41], and Firestone tyres[43], meaning the others missed out, although Lucas missed the re-application deadline after disappearing from the paddock mid-way through 2015, with it later being confirmed they would not compete in the season, and a replacement was to be chosen from the initial entries for the thirteenth team.[46] On 17 January 2016, this team was confirmed to be North Star, who would be powered by BMW.[47] It was later announced they would run on Michelin tyres.[55]
  • Liverpool and Mathershaw announced they will mutually part company at the end of 2015 season, with the entry being handed back to the latter party.[5] It was later confirmed the team had agreed a deal with PSA Group's DS Automobiles brand to become a works team, while DS have also entered into a technical partnership with Downton, who provide power units to the team.[6]
  • Meteor confirmed they would split with engine partner Peugeot after two seasons with the French marque citing 'unacceptable performance'.[56] It was later announced they would be powered by Virgin Motors, a new division of the Virgin Group.[26] They also confirmed they would switch their base to the United States, and therefore run under a US license.[24]
  • Warrior announced they would abandon their Greek base for a relocation to Switzerland and with it a change of team identity.[57] On 28th April 2016 it was announced the team would be re-branded as Lopez FV Team after founder Dylan Lopez, and that they had a secured a Downton engine deal.[39]
  • Downton announced prior to the 2015 Japanese V-Prix that they would switch tyre supplier from Firestone to Michelin for 2016.[58]
  • Prior to pre-season testing Rossi had failed to announce any drivers, though it was rumoured Puccio Giodano had been signed. As the team failed to show during testing, announce any drivers or give any reason as to their absence, series CEO Nic Morley took the decision to replace them with Holmqvist.[52]

Driver changes

  • Before her departure, Kiara was due to race at Ocelot alongside Karl Beckenbauer, who was announced as a driver early in 2015;[36] which combined with DS' separation from Vauxhall resulted in Beckenbauer and the team parting ways mid-way through 2015, and him moving to Warrior from the Belgian V-Prix.[60] This left 2015 Ocelot driver Judson Sikes without a race seat, although the team did confirm he would act as reserve driver, but that they working to find him a seat.[61] It was later announced he would race for new team North Star[50] and Hilario Bull would step into the reserve role.[34] Upon Kiara's departure it was speculated Sikes may return to the team, but it was confirmed on the eve of the new season that Puccio Giodano would join the team instead, having been left without a drive when Rossi withdrew, [37] leaving Scott Parsons and Hugh Dwyer without drives.

Calendar changes

  • The Emirates V-Prix was scheduled to join the calendar with Formula Virtual anticipated to head to the United Arab Emirates for the first time with a race in Dubai.[68] Disputes with series organiser Nic Morley saw the race cancelled however, and replaced with the Bahrain V-Prix, which returned to the calendar after a one-year absence.[69]
  • Turkey also joined the calendar with the series heading to Istanbul, while the Dutch V-Prix had its maiden race after the 2015 event didn't go ahead due to bugs with the circuit. While originally planned to happen at Zandvoort, the V-Prix actually took place at Assen. Argentina was also due to hold it's maiden race but continued problems resulted in it being dropped from the calendar and replaced with Portugal, which had originally lost out to accommodate the Argentina round. [70]
  • As a result of the additions South Africa lost its place after just one seasons.[66]
  • The United States V-Prix was scheduled to change location with Long Beach hosting the race in place of Indianapolis[66], but the race remained in Indianapolis after the FVA decided that the Long Beach circuit was not ready to host the race.
  • As per the alternating agreement between Monza and Imola, the Italian V-Prix will be held at Monza in 2016.[71]
  • A number of date changes will take place in 2016, with races being grouped together depending on their geographical location.[66]

Rule changes

Nose variations

2016 will see differences in nose designs for the first time. The high nose is beneficial to top speed while the low nose is beneficial to aero, and every team must choose one. With each nose design will come 12% development points that must be distributed in favour of the teams preferred nose; high nose choices must have more points weighted on engine, low nose must have points more points on aero. Regardless of nose choice, each area must have at least 1% development point.

Development points

As per the previous season, development points will be awarded to teams who keep their drivers on board. 12% will be awarded to a team per driver that is kept on, meaning a total of 24% can be gained. To be eligible for this a driver must have competed in every race - with the exception of two only - of the previous season, and must also remain part of the same team for at least the first four races of the current season, with bonuses to be applied from round five, the start of the European season.

Champions bonus

As per the above, the Champion is subject to a further bonus. Instead of the 12%, the Champion gets 16% but will take it with him to whichever team he joins. Should he remain at the same team, they will gain 16% instead of 12%.

Driver loans / reserve drivers

No driver loaned to another team can act as a reserve/test driver for the team to which they are contracted. Teams may recall their driver should the situation arise, but cannot officially list the loaned driver as a test/reserve driver, meaning they will need another as it is a rule every team must have at least one reserve. No driver can be contracted to two teams at once unless on a loan deal, so no more sharing test drivers.

Strategy deadlines

New rules will be implemented to crack down on teams missing strategy deadlines so races can always go up on time. Nic will set a deadline and it will be firm. If it is not met, one of the following penalties will apply depending on how many times the team has missed a strategy entry:

  • First offence - Exclusion from qualifying and a 10-second penalty applied to each drivers race time.
  • Second offence - Exclusion from qualifying and a 20-second penalty applied to each drivers race time.
  • Third offence - Exclusion from the weekend.

Strategies

After refuelling was used to dictate strategies for the first three seasons, it will be scrapped for 2016, with tyre choice instead dictating strategies. Each team will have the choice of Super Softs, Softs, Mediums and Hards for each race, but can only choose one compound per car to run for the entire race, with drivers pitting once their tyres are suitably worn.

Stewards enquiries

Formula Virtual CEO Nic Morley will act as sole steward for the 2016 season, applying penalties as necessary for any incidents. For an incident to be investigated it must first be reported on the forum.

Finances

For the first time in the series' history the prize money and driver prices is set to remain largely the same, with only a few minor modifications to accommodate the addition of a thirteenth team and in turn, extra drivers;
