Looks like it'll be another no practice week again, too busy playing Project Cars 2 that I got for my Birthday today haha.

PS: So for my present from you all, I expect to be given at least a free podium, okay? Okay. ;P

Thanks to the Head Steward's joke decision to hand me a Qualy ban, Italy will probs be a non-event for me.

Shame since I've actually nailed the set-up for once. See what happens I guess.

Wait what? I have never heard of a driver disagreeing with the stewards decisions. That's a new one... ;);) ;)

Another write-off weekend - this I "should" have won.

Qualifying: Banned

No explanation necessary - nice sabotage :p

Race: DSQ

Only have myself to blame in the end.

Knew I had the fastest car for once, and had practiced online racing which delivered promising results. In short, felt I had the pace to win this time.

Got a good start and started passing a few cars in the first three laps, peeps like @Prehn , @kovisjimi (I think, knew it was a Red Bull at least) and co, then found myself on the coattails of @advanceapple who had another two or three cars ahead of him who were struggling a little to begin with, and I was easily faster than all of them so figured I'd bide my time and look for opportunities to pass then they presented themselves.

Didn't bank on being caught out by one of the cars kerb hopping ahead of Apple, and my lost concentration sent me onto the inside kerb of the second chicane and that in turn threw my car into the barriers and wrecked my front wing - and with it my chances of bagging a decent result.

Decided to have some fun and just kept going, hoping enough cars who fall out of contention so I might score a point or two. Stayed ahead of @JohnnyR95 though accrued a number of penalties in my track extending escapades - eventually disqualified.

Pretty pissed off - without the Qualy ban this race might have turned out very differently.

Race Stream:
Quali: 2nd
First run was decent enough, was holding P2 just slightly behind @Roadhouse on my last run I was able to improve by almost two tenths, I knew I had more time in me I had been setting constant 1:20.2 in practice. However I caught upto @CombiKoermi as he was starting his lap. I just hit the dirty air and then made an error into the 2nd chicane. Was unfortunate but that happens sometimes. Held onto P2

Race: 2nd
Literally from the moment the lights went out @Roadhouse and I were fighting. It was a brilliant race, every lap was a sprint. First stint I was able to catch onto the back but was unable to pass. I tried the undercut on lap 9 which almost worked, but with a scruffy outlap I was unable to pull it off. Once we caught upto @DON SILVA who was yet to pit, I was able then put more pressure on @Roadhouse and eventually was able to take the lead. I tried to pull out a gap but we were so similar on pace it was almost impossible. Towards the end of the race more mistakes started to creep in and at the 2nd chicane I bunny hopped the kerbs very nicely. Although this resulted in us going side by side through the lesmos, me almost spinning and then losing the lead :D I tried to get the lead back but on lap 26 and 27 I had several moments as my tyres were pretty much done. I backed off and took the 2nd place, didn't fancy binning it on the last lap and looking like a right pleb. :rofl:
