Hehhhhh frustrating but fun race. Lost the back end on my first qualy lap and did a way too conservative second lap. Than it started drizzling and chances of a good grid position were gone. 6th.

Race started well, eventually ended up leading before I pitted. Started to believe I was winning the race because I thought everyone was on a 2 stop .
That wasn't the case so I was in 4th again. @pepper_F1 was holding me up a bit but no opporunities to get passed. Got a bit impatient and was on the outside at Dagner 1. Should have backed out but ended up in the gravel. That was never gonna end well. Hopefully it dind't effect your race.
Passed @Malaske then for 5th but went wide after that, dispite having the entire corner for myself. On the last the podium came back in sight though with @OTG going slowly. Tried to make the move in the final chicane but some lag made that impossible. Even lost a position in the process. 6th.

Race was ruined on the first lap when the haas (not malaske, dont know his forum name) lost it in front of me and i tried to avoid him but i guessed wrong and went straight into the back of him and damaged my front wing... this is why i dont practise much anymore! its getting harder and harder to find motivation for season 15!

Anyway, #RaceReport

Quali: 3rd
Race: 3rd

Had a poor 1st run in quali, then the 2nd run was affected by the drizzles, so despite still getting 3rd was disappointed, as pole position was easily the target. Race pace wasn't optimal, as I struggled with tyre wear and overtaking was extremely hard. Sadly it was even harder to stick behind Malaske and OTG due to internet connection, as they lagged a fair bit, and I was afraid that accidents could be caused so tried to be as cautious as I could, hurting me in a way, as the top 6 was all in contention for the win. After the incident with Joey and losing the position to OTG I lost a bit of my consistency as I struggled to keep myself together, but eventually managed to secure what was my first podium since AOR S11 Bahrain... Hoping USA can be better and with more attendances.

Great start, then @pepper_F1 ruined my race really by break checking me into the pits (going to the stewards), I got to the front and was going to win until this broken **** tip of a game caused me to lose the race at the hairpin by throwing my car in the air.

Not really sure why I bother.

Average quali lap put me 8th.
Clean start through first corners but then got on kerb and lost control of car heading up the hill( apologies to @REYLAP_93 ) managed to keep it under control thankfully. From then on I had a really boring race with no one around me and just kept plodding along until I decided to put on lap 12 and crashed at the pit lane entry line ( locked brakes and went straight into wall) this isn't the first time lol. Guys in front were far too quick to keep up with but had 8th in the bag all be it if I didn't crash, which I did. We really need more members!

Fun if not frustrating race. So much lag. Couldnt get close to anyone without contact. But still a fun race. I should have been more cautious knowing there was terrible lag. To the guy taking out the brake markers. Could you please not do that? No one else in this league does that and it's not sportsmanlike. Try to keep it clean or there will be complaints.

Hey @Philip_66 !
Can i ask you your opinion regarding this incident?

Looked at both your footage.
You both had trouble controlling the car at the same time.
Pepper came to the right because of using the curbs, and you came left because of a bit of oversteer.
Imo; racing accident. That just happens.
