My condolences man. All the best.

I can't race tonight by the looks of it due to two major issues. The first is the game is refusing to load. I get the title screen with all the faces, then it goes black, then it crashes to the dashboard. Taken the CD out and given it a clean, retarted the xbox etc and still no joy. So idk what that's about.

Also it appears the sound has blown on my tele since i'm not getting any from video clips or navigating through the dashboard. Obviously as a manual gear shifter that makes it difficult due to not hearing the engine note. I think there's a way I could get the sound to route through my headphones(?) but frankly without a working disc that's a moot point.

Please hurt me. Luck isn't improving. 20 points in 5 races is depressing. I'm stuck in a black hole with no way to get out.

Could be worse, you could've been 4th with 3 laps left, on a quicker tyre than those around you, and then get taken out, my luck is worse than yours, don't think I've had 20 points all season, could've had 25 today...

There are moments it goes well and sometimes not but you still improve across all races you do, just never give.

By the way guys after 24 hours of racing I need rest.

The most exciting race ever. Qualified 17th and finished 8th.
Qualifying was extremely bad. I only did 1 lap because I came back at the last moment. The start was good, gained 1 palce after turn 1. Then a lot of people crashed between turn 4,5 and 6. After the first lap, I was already 9th. I was then chasing @Taylor Reynolds but could'nt overtake him, I couldn't get a good exit from turn 1 to overtake him with DRS. Great battle tho.
I had to do 1 extra lap because my mate pitted the same I wanted, costed me maybe 1 or 2 seconds. In the pit entry I almost done the most stupid thing, tried to change my tyres from SS to S, 1 meter before the entry, it went on wets and I last seconds changed back to SS... The stint on SS was really short, only 1 lap and then SC and back on the S. After the SC, almost done the overtake of the year on @CRMR11 , @AOR BiGGzY96 and @Jaxxy OG .I had a great exit from Eau Rouge, with DRS and slipstream, overtook all of them but I missed my breaking point and gave @AOR BiGGzY96 and @CRMR11 the position back.
After this I almost ended my race, touched Biggzy rear wheel with my front and sent me into the barriers, got yellow damage on the right front wing. For the last laps, managed to stay in front of @StubbornGymnast till the end of the race. Finished 9th but thanks to penalties I ended 8th. Really happy with my drive, 0 penalty and consistent drive. I hope the Italian GP will be as exciting as this one.
Shoutout to my mate who finished 2nd and @Taylor Reynolds for the battle.

Great race everyone and see you in Italy.
