I'll start us off:

My DoTW is @Diogo !

Recovered from early incidents to claim the race win, capitalising on the mistakes of others (ME! :facepalm: ), all in all a well deserved win on the night. Well done mate!!

OK fair enough @Diogo did yes win the race but driver of the day no. This has a slight bitterness to it I know but I don't think saying someone deserved a race win because the person who would have won by 5 seconds if u take away the fact I had to sit at the end of the pit lane due to pens being on OK fair enough but after diogo making contact with me later in the race to pass me and then go on to create a 15 sec gap on me (which i was ok with 2nd was good enough for me) until my engine blows on lap 25. So without sounding harsh or bitchy. Diogo cannot be driver of the day due to winning the race through 90% luck. Sorry its harsh but the truth. He would not have won the race if lobby was setup correctly and a clean pass was made on me.

This thread's for you to vote for your driver of the week, not to go questioning other people's choices. It's extremely disrespectful towards both Shaw and Diogo. You have an issue with Diogo's driving? Take him to the stewards.

I mean no disrespect to anyone. I just found it very disheartening to read that. Maybe it was the wording of it that got me "capitalising on the mistakes of others" is not intirly true.

I am fully aware it is only a game and it mean nothing really but when ur hard work seems unrecognised and praise is slightly misplaced (in my opinion) you might understand my slight frustration at seeing the post.

Look mate, all I can do is comment on MY VIEWS of the race, I don't have the ability to see the race from all angles. As @Devastation said, if you have a problem or feel like @Diogo made an unfair pass on you, take it to the stewards.

When that's happened and I've been proved wrong, I'll consider changing my vote. It isn't advised to come in here all guns blazing because I've commented my personal opinion straight after the race.

You have one vote, I had an uneventful race, I seen Diogo slip down the places, then he won, who else would I vote for? Being serious, should I just pluck a name out of thin air? Just choose whoever I feel like?

Like I said, if any evidence comes to light then I'll obviously consider changing my vote. I personally will opt for clean and consistent drivers, rather than one-lap pace or run away winners.

I apoligise for my harsh reaction. A backlash from my frustration.
@Diogo @Shaw lXl @Devastation
The beauty of this weekly award is everyone will have different views on who they feel should win. I'm sure in the coming rounds the racing will settle down and we'll have some fiercely contested battles on the track.

No worries though mate, last night frustrated us all in different ways, not sure one individual came away with only positives. Onwards and upwards to Round 2 @ Spa :)

My DoTW is @Devastation , if im not confusing with another driver :)
From the start of the race he played clean and set a nice pace.Only near the end of the race he had a problem(i think his engine blew off or something) wich cost him his 1st win.

As Atticus said, Dev' didn' make the race start, so I've removed him from the poll (my bad). You'll be free to vote again :)

im a bit biased but, given the fact i qualified on pole by 4 tenths, had 2 BS time penalties and spun twice and had the time penalties not happened i would have been battling for the win. as i said im biased but i think i had an amazing drive tbh

Yeah I spun when I was 20+ seconds ahead and saving fuel & tyres and hit a wall. Wasted time running another full lap after it then my pit stop mucked up (wheel nut jammed and ended up with 60L instead of 20 of fuel)

Really lucky to finish 3rd tbh
