The 2018 Formula Virtual season will be the sixth 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.

Nathaniel Powers will start the season as the defending Drivers' Champion, after becoming the first ever double World Drivers' Champion at the 2017 Brazilian V-Prix. His team Downton will start the season off the back of one of the most dominant seasons-to-date for a team, and as defending Constructors' Champions after winning their maiden title at the 2017 Bahrain V-Prix.

After eleven races Adrien Simon leads the Drivers' Championship by 3 points from Powers, with Enrique Ruiz 28 points behind in third. DS Mathershaw head the Constructors' Championship by 4 points from Downton with Franklin third, 83 points further back.

Team changes

  • Dick Diceman announced that his team FUN will leave the series after five seasons. He cited a busier life of late with other ongoing projects that has taken his attention away, and felt the spot would be better-suited to a team who could be more focused on the Championship. [42] They will be replaced in the series by Phoenix, who have previously run in FV2 & FV3. [40]
  • Holmqvist will switch engine supplier from Renault to Koenigsegg after citing a 'strained relationship' with the French manufacturer. The deal will mean the Swedish outfit become a semi-works team and change their name to Koenigsegg Team Holmqvist. [19]
  • AMR Autosport withdrew their funding leaving the team in financial trouble, but three former members of the company clubbed together to buy the team out and keep them going. Adrian Arnello - who takes over as team principal - Jan Milner and Brad Ronson will run the team as Arnello Milner & Ronson Autosport, keeping the AMR name. The team will continue to use an AMR Autosport power unit for the final season. [23]
  • After just a single season Ocelot split from Honda and planned to use Maserati engines from 2018. [43]. They also planned a name change to Pegasus, being officially known as Pegasus Alfieri Maserati [32], but a shock turn of events in the off-season led to the team moving back to the Ocelot name [33], and instead using Alfa Romeo engines. [34]

Rule changes

Development points

Prices

From 2018, the price of development (in-season) points will be halved, costing only £250k per points; while the price of research (next season) points will also be reduced to £400k. The following rules apply to how points can be distributed at each round:

  • Price of development point: £250k
  • Price of research point: £400k
  • A maximum of 9 points can be used per race
  • A maximum of 3 points can be used on each area (Aero and Engine) and on Development in total per round, while 6 points may be used for research

Driver bonus points

Teams will no longer receive 12 points for keeping a driver. Instead, points will progressively increase the longer a driver spends with a team, with 2 points per season for keeping one driver (up to a maximum of 10), and an additional 1 point per season for keeping a second (up to a maximum of 5).

The following table shows how many points a team gets depending on how long they keep a driver (please note the years refer to years after the drivers first season with the team):

1 year 2 years 3 years 4 years 5+ years
Keeping no drivers 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%
Keeping one driver 2% 4% 6% 8% 10%
Keeping a second driver 1% 2% 3% 4% 5%

The rules for earning development points remain similar to how they have been since they started. A driver must compete in all but two races in the preceding season to be eligible, however now must take on a race role - not reserve - in the same team the following season for the first four races, with the bonuses applied from round five. No bonuses will be applied for 2018 however.

Champions bonus

The Champions bonus will remain, but will now be 6 points regardless of the team they go to. The bonus only applies to the reigning champion.

Season report

Pre-season testing began on the 9th of March. Thierry Xylander was fastest for DS Mathershaw on the first day, but Enrique Ruiz showed good pace on the medium tyres while further back Ocelot also looked to have dramatically improved. Will Hoskins topped day two for Holmqvist with Franklin once again right up there, while reigning champions Downton were also consistently towards the front, but lagging slightly behind DS Mathershaw and Franklin. Hoskins' teammate Tumo Kinnumen went fastest on day three, while Olen Inman made his Franklin debut and continued to show the strong pace on medium tyres. Nathaniel Powers topped the final day on super softs for Downton while rookie Ryota Yoshida was third fastest for Ocelot, yet further evidence of the Japanese outfits rise up the field. Another team to show impressive pace was the new addition to the grid in Phoenix, who looked to be mixing it with Meteor and FIRST, the two American teams seemingly struggling.

Adrien Simon took pole in the first race, and went on to win it. He faced stern competition from Puccio Giodano and Powers, with the latter two on different strategies. Ruiz had a very poor race, spinning at turn one and repeatedly getting in the way of frontrunners, before being disqualified after running without a rear wing. 2017 championship runner up Klaas van Snelheid also had a poor weekend, after crashing in qualifying in an incident with Viktor Östberg, before retiring from the race on the first lap in an incident including Felix Pérez. Ingram also showed great pace, finishing fourth and fifth.

Van Snelheid fought back in Japan, qualifying on the front row and winning the race after passing pole sitter Ruiz. He was pushed hard at the end by Allar Kangur however, and was chased by Simon before the Frenchman drove into the Downton in the pit lane, spinning off later in the race. Inman arguably saved his drive at Franklin be going from outside the top ten to third with a stunning drive, including a pass on Ruiz. Hoskins also had a decent race, taking sixth, while both Meteor cars retired.

Inman took a shock pole in China, but it was Simon who took his second victory of the season. He was followed by van Snelheid and Powers, the Dutchman continuing his good form. Inman fell to sixth after hitting van Snelheid. Both Ocelots were involved in incidents that lost them their front wings. Giodano managed to battle back up to seventh. Behind, Johan Halvosen took North Star's first points of the season in ninth.

Giodano splashed his way to pole in Malaysia for Ocelot, ahead of Powers. The Italian retained the lead at the start, while Davenport and Schnyder collided on the opening lap. Kangur was put out of the race in an incident with Ruiz. Soon rain struck and chaos began. Halvosen was put out of the race when he was held up in an incident with Yoshida before Inman hit the Dane. Ostberg hit Halvosen and put himself out of the race. Felix Beyer drove directly into the North Star causing a horrendous crash, pitching Halvosen into a barrel roll. Yoshida and Judson Sikes collided and crashed into the pit lane. Giodano, who was leading, hit a loose tyre on the main straight and lost his front wing. There were many more retirements, including van Snelheid with a few laps left. Powers eventually won, while Vasquez took a shock third. Alvarez was amazingly fourth, but his engine failed at the final corner on the final lap, leaving him classified ninth. FIRST and Lopez also took their first points, along with Phoenix. Only 8 cars finished the race.

Downton took another victory in Britain, van Snelheid beating Powers. Simon's third preserved his championship lead, though Powers was now bearing down on his neck. Both him and Ruiz spun in the race after being hit by van Snelheid and Mattson respectively. Kangur was having a strong race, but a brake failure put him out of the race. Mattson took fourth ahead of the two Franklins, allowing Ingram to leapfrog Ocelot into fourth in the standings.

Everything finally fell in the right place for Ocelot and Giodano in France. Taking his second pole, the Italian roared to victory, only ceding the lead in the pitstop phase. The other big news of the race was the many engine failures at the end, which left Mathershaw, AMR and Ingram with double DNFs while Giodano's engine let go on the cool down lap. Van Snelheid and Powers took second and third, though they both had problems in the race: Klaas having a unusual collision with Yoshida in the pitlane and Powers losing his front wing on the final lap when he hit Sikes stationary car, the Russian retiring from a points paying position on the last lap. Gabriele García took his first points of his career, as did Ostberg. Davenport also returned into the points in over a year.
