Sorry guys but I won't be racing tonight. I've had a bad stomach all night and this morning and still feel a bit weird tbh. I'd rather just recuperate than drive with a possible lack of energy. Feel gutted as Mexico would have been a good track for me.

See you all for the final 2 rounds.

The driving standards for this race were disgusting.
There's a difference between "hard racing" and using others as a wall or acting like you're in a go kart. Get real.

Race Report
Qualifying - P12
Race - P5
I had 2 laps invalidated in the same which would've put me in the top 5 probably but that meant I was stuck with my banker lap in P12. Luckily that meant the 1 stop was much easier going from supers to softs. I was probably too cautious on the first lap and had dropped down to 14th and was last by halfway of the second lap after a poor run through the last corner. I had a good run on DemoN going into lap 4 but messed up T1 and he managed to stay ahead. A few laps later, I managed to get past Caxaxic after he made a mistake into the stadium section, it seemed to me that he let me through. For the rest of the stint I was trying to chase down DemoN who had pulled a bit of a gap. On lap 13 I had a good run on him but he defended well and so I had to stick behind. On lap 15, i came to pit just as the leader closed upto me. I was last after the pitstop and it took me a few laps to get close enough to overtake Woody, I managed to get a good run out of the last corner and get around the outside of T1. A couple of laps later I managed a similar move on SMD_Mali. A few laps after that Vik basically let me through (to my surprise, but I'll take it I guess). After that, I let my teammate through as he was on fresher tyres and tried to stick to him as much as possible. For the last few laps I probably pushed more than I would've liked as DemoN was closing in on his supers but managed to keep it out of trouble with the rain coming down and in the end it was (somehow) P5 after penalties. I don't think I really deserved to finish that high but I'll take it.
Congrats to @JammyJames on the win and to @mazais5727 and @Nexus1011 on the podium. Also commiserations to @AshRichardson_F1 hopefully you'll have better luck in Brazil.
