Grazie all'ennesimo podio di questa stagione, l'ottavo consecutivo, Daniel Kiss si è laureato matematicamente campione con una gara di anticipo. A Suzuka, l'ungherese ha dato prova di forza ottenendo la sua prima pole-position in carriera su SimRacingZone.net, pole che, come ci spiega nella breve intervista post-gara, ha fortemente voluto, come per dimostrare di essere non solo un sim-driver intelligente e costante ma anche molto veloce. L'ungherese ha condotto gran parte del ROUND 11: ISI Japanese GP, ma è poi stato beffato dalla strategia ad unico pit-stop proposta da Marco Conti, il quale è tornato alla vittoria dopo un'astinenza che durava da ben sei Gran Premi, dall'appuntamento spagnolo di Barcellona. Nonostante la volontà di chiudere i giochi con una vittoria, Kiss ha dovuto arrendersi all'astuta strategia dell'italiano, e ha così colto l'occasione per aiutare il compagno di squadra Muhammed Patel, consegnandogli le chiavi della seconda posizione. Il britannico cercherà così di lottare, in quel di Interlagos, anche per il terzo posto della classifica generale, conteso con lo stesso Conti e con Francesco Bigazzi. La tappa brasiliana, che chiude la nona edizione del Campionato Italiano rF1, deciderà infine il titolo costruttori, obiettivo quasi raggiunto dalla Twister2Fast4You.

Con 15 presenze all'attivo, Kiss è il quinto vincitore diverso nella storia del Campionato Italiano rF1. Le precedenti edizioni contano un titolo per Giuseppe Pellegrino, uno per Bono Huis, uno per Marco Conti e quattro per David Greco. Grazie agli incredibili risultati, che saranno ufficializzato dopo l'appuntamento conclusivo, l'ungherese rientra ampiamente tra i primi 30 del ranking assoluto, autore di una fantastica scalata. Il suo esordio in Italia è datato 23 gennaio 2014, quando affiancò Carlos Martin nel Monster Team a Spa-Francorchamps, gara bagnata che lo vede ritirarsi per incidente. Il passaggio ad rFactor2 ha valorizzato ulteriormente le sue qualità, già sottolineate nella stagione 2015 di FSR e da alcune apparizioni nel Campionato Italiano rF1 2014/2015 quando, con poco allenamento, impensierì comunque i sim-driver di testa. Per lui si prospetta ora l'ultimo impegno decisivo nella lotta al titolo costruttori. Non ci sarà pausa, Kiss continuerà a correre nel mondiale di FSR, dove ha iniziato con un amaro DNF, senza staccare nemmeno per un attimo la spina.

SRZ: Congratulations Daniel for being the new champion of Campionato Italiano rF1. After leading the standing for many months, you have finally achieaved the title thanks to the 3rd place collected in Suzuka. Which were the best and the worst moment of the season?

D.K.: "Thank you very much! Yeah, it's been a great and strong season for me, I'm really happy to win this great championship! I have finished all of the races on the podium since round 3, so I believe I deserve it. I'd say the first win (Spa) as the best moment, because I think we were dominant there in the race, both Mo and I had to overtake the Pescara guys and we were able to do so with great pace. The Hungarian GP win is also special, but I was a bit lucky there with Francesco's technical issues, so that wasn't only up to me. The worst moments were definitely the first 2 races, I spun in both which cost me at least 1, but maybe 2 podium finishes. If you had asked me back then, I wouldn't have been so sure if I could be able to win the title."

SRZ: In Japan you took the first pole-position ever on SimRacingZone.net. The win looked to be easy, especially after the first few laps, but the unexpected strategy by Marco Conti broke your plans. Did you consider the chance to make only one stop? How was your race?

D.K.: "I really needed this pole position, I didn't want to be the champion without a pole position, that would have looked silly. This was my best chance due to Marco's and Francesco's penalties and I took it, but I believe that the pole time would have beaten both of them even if they had been able to do Q2. The race went smoothly, and since I didn't want to risk anything I got used to a bad rhythm and got into a zone where I wasn't pushing at all, and thanks to that Marco had the opportunity to get track position on me with his 1 stopper strategy. I wanted to win this race, but didn't want to risk too much, therefore I didn't try to force chasing Marco because I could have made a mistake and then we would have been compromized in both the drivers' and constructors' championships. That's the last thing you need at this moment of the season. I just simply accepted that I'm going to win the title without this race win."

SRZ: Your team mate was very fast here too, and in the end you let him through. He now is 3rd in the standing, but with the same points of Conti and just a few more than Bigazzi. Do you think he will be able to take the trophy? Is this a real target, such as the team title, or you don't care much?

D.K.: "Mo really likes Suzuka, and even with the small amount of testing that we did, I think we had decent pace. We were discussing it during the race, since it didn't really matter to me if I finished 2nd or 3rd, I agreed to help him and give him those extra 2 points in his fight for P3. He is not just a team mate, but a friend so I was happy to do so. It's up to him now, he will have to do better than Marco and Bigazzi in the last race, but I will obviously help him again if needed. Of course it's important for us and me too, I wouldn't have let him through if I hadn't cared. But I believe that it's more important to both of us to get the constructors' title."
