Big chance I'll be missing this one. Have a birthday sunday night and I believe we'll be going out for dinner. Might be home in time but highly doubt it.

Quali: P5
Race: P7 (maybe 6, I honestly don´t remember)

My quali laps weren´t perfect but I was happy with my temporary 3rd position. Sadly I dindn´t take the dry tire gamble (congratulations to Vanoss and @ShaunG123 on your big balls ;) ) so I moved down to 5th.

At the start of the race my internet had a stroke or something, because on the run down to turn one all the cars were jumping around the racetrack like panicing frogs. I therefore broke way to early for turn one and still managed to brake my fron wing. When going into the pits at the end of the first lap I tried to lose as little time as possible, broke as late as I thought was possible... and got myself a 5 second stop-go penalty. Note to myself: trying to gain time by doing things you are not 100% sure about often loses you time :/ . From then on I just pushed on a set of softs and managed to set the fastest lap along the way and even better it a few times. At my second pitstop on lap 16 I entered the pits just behind @REYLAP_93 , but lost out to him again, because of my five second stop and go penalty. On the set of supersoft tires I received from my pit crew I gave it everything again and found myself in a battle for the fastest lap with @nikki (spoiler: I won that duel). Although I had come out of the pits in dead last position I managed to catch and overtake a few cars along the way.
In conclusion I was very happy with my performance where I made two stupid miistakes, because apart from three minor cornercuts those were the only ones I made yesterday. My pace was probably good enough for the win, but that was just no possibilty after what had happened at the start.
Edit: Also a huge apology to @Philip_66 for the incident on lap 26. I only realised what happend there after skipping through your footage. I tried to avoid the slow car on the right in the wrongest way possible and went over to your line instead of using my bra(in)kes. I did not want to ruin your final laps and kill your fun.

Congratulations to @nikki on the win and my teammate @ShaunG123 for gaining us some sweet points.
