Driver questions:

1. We had a mixed conditions affair at Spa, how do you felt you coped with the strategy choices this created as the weather evolved and did you find it easy to adapt?

2. Monza is another high speed circuit following the high speeds of Spa as well, do you enjoy these hugely fast circuits, or are more technical layouts your speciality?

As always:

To @Ollie_D631 : Yet again you took a commanding victory in wet weather, your 2nd of the season. With other typically wet races coming up in the next few rounds, what are your aims in the upcoming rounds?

To @Simo911 : You suffered last lap heartbreak at Spa with the intermediate tyres puncturing and costing you positions, but despite this and missing the first 3 rounds, you're in the title hunt. Is the title something you're thinking about or do you go race by race?

1. I crashed so no. Pitting was out of the question after I braked late into the chicane and if I wanted to stop, I’d have hit Ali and Carrex

2. Fast circuits are *usually* better but my best results have come on street tracks. It’s a lottery in this league.

As always:
Pole: Aressi

2: Aresssi
3. Syntetic

1. We had a mixed conditions affair at Spa, how do you felt you coped with the strategy choices this created as the weather evolved and did you find it easy to adapt?

well i am **** in the wet and i had a few iffy strategy choices like giving up on a lap that could have gotten me in the first row to start on the SS, but overall i think i did good enough

2. Monza is another high speed circuit following the high speeds of Spa as well, do you enjoy these hugely fast circuits, or are more technical layouts your speciality?

I think i have more natural pace on pfaster cicuits, but on this game i did very descent on technical tracks. Monza is one of my favourite tracks and i hope that i can get a good result here

I coped well. The most difficult part was managing the tyres because they were on the verge of punctures towards the end.


2. Monza is another high speed circuit following the high speeds of Spa as well, do you enjoy these hugely fast circuits, or are more technical layouts your speciality?
I prefer more technical layouts. Spa is a mixture of high speed and fast flowing corners and i like that. Monza is more who can bunny hop the kerbs in the best way :lol:

With other typically wet races coming up in the next few rounds, what are your aims in the upcoming rounds? The aims for the upcoming rounds are to try and get consistent top 5 finishes. Hopefully this will allow me to be in the championship fight.

I was #blessed by the rain. Strategy call and getting out fast launched me up the field a bit from an already decent starting position, then my pace and consistency was absolutely quality. The strategy call to switch to another set of inters proved a good one as 2 drivers on the same strat got punctures.

2. Monza is another high speed circuit following the high speeds of Spa as well, do you enjoy these hugely fast circuits, or are more technical layouts your speciality?
Monza and Spa are two of my favourites, along with Austria and Suzuka. I think high speed is definitely my thing, these cars feel so sluggish at low speed.

Not bad and everything was good until started to struggle with tyres. Towards end I was very slow compared to Simo, Ollie and Syntetic.

I prefer more technical tracks. Also like Spa but Monza been usually my worst tracks.

What do you get if you take someone who can't drive this track fast for ****, throw in a ''this and next lap invalidated'' in Qualifying, add a dollop of terrible feeling car, a smidgen of endless divebombings, garnished with another front wing change?

No points.

I am so close to joining the other people who have left. It's not even enjoyable anymore.
