And it is on the left, for those who were wondering. Anybody who thinks otherwise has gone down in my rankings of how much I like you.



You are not Yoda.
To fair I was not that high of a rank in your eyes anyway.

TYE, I let you by as soon as you were behind me as I always do with lead lap cars. I knew the guy behind me was holding you up but what am I supposed to do let him pass me so he stops blocking you?
Just had time to watch the replay. Seemed like an eternity at the time but it all happened over the space of 1 lap. Your right that you shouldn't have to give up a position to someone who is blocking the leaders but the leaders also shouldn't have to put up with blocking especially when the backmarkers had literally nothing to gain from it and its in the closing laps.

I was well within 0.5 of you guys at the hairpin at the end of the back straight and then didn't get past until the same corner next lap after jean had passed me while you 2 were battling. Aye Ryan was more at fault than you were but if youd let him past you wouldn't have been any worse off than you already were since yous were already lapped and out of the points. That wouldve allowed me and jfg to get past him quicker then maybe allowing you another shot at him. By staying in front and fighting him you made yourself a part of the blocking.

I'm not wanting to make a huge deal out of this i just wanted the mistakes to be acknowledged, I understand being lapped while fighting for a position isnt nice or easy ive been there too but out of the 4 cars involved you and ryan lost/gained nothing Jean gained and i lost so naturally my brain tells me to bitch a bit.

and still finish ahead of you :D
That is because when you overtake me you jump on top me and in most countries that is rape. But in your liberal country it might be something else but oh well.;)

I felt that Ryan was trying to use you(the lead cars) to pass me, in a reversed "pick" move, and I was not going to let that happen, as far as being in the points or not I was there to race for position regardless. In hindsight if it ever happens again I would move over and just go for the pass after you guys were safely through, if I was a lead lap car I would expect to not be slowed down by lapped cars. This will not happen again because I will not get lapped again.:rolleyes:

Yeah your definitely right in that he was trying to use us to get past you, in all honesty I wouldve been reluctant to let him pull that off if that was me. After sitting on it for a day i realise i "might" have been a bit of a moany wee bitch :D so apologies for that. If it happens again in the future we can come up with some sort of plan where i can run the cheeky one wide and let you get the spot back :cigar:
