Qualifying 2nd - 7/10 - Didn't improve from my first lap of 28.7, was expecting a low 28 so overall happy enough to start 2nd.

Race 4th - 7/10 - I need to learn how to save tyres better, my race setups aren't cutting it!

Good start into 1st but from then on the car felt like it was on ice. 2nd at the pitstop on lap 9, I put on the softs which in hindsight was a mistake!

Knowing the guys behind me on the mediums would be on my wing by the end, I tried to be as smooth as possible and make no mistakes to save the tyres.

It was working until about lap 24 and then I knew I was doomed as AlonsoFerrari3 started to close and he pulled off a great overtake into the last chicane on the last lap! And a 3 sec penalty saw me drop 3rd.

Finished with 78% wear and just happy to not puncture.

Really have to work on my race setups and tyre wear....

But all in all I was happy with 4th as Phenom, AF3 and Pepsii in this league are rapid.

Congrats on the podiums!

P9 as got collected very early on in the race by another driver’s mistake.

Forced me onto the 2 stop so I just went for it as I wasn’t going to come higher than 9th. Enjoyed closing down @Jott3r in my last stint, fresher tyres helped and had a great last 3 lap battle which I came out in front coming across the line just! But an extra penalty from pushing hard put be behind.

Extremely happy with my pace could’ve been up there but need to work on my qualy as I didn’t manage to set a lap that wasn’t invalidated?

Congrats to the podium finishers! But I’ll take my first fastest lap!?

Second place today I'll take it considering Japan is not a good track for me but had I not ran wide at the second degner it probably would have been the win. I think I nailed the strategy to pit early for mediums and undercut two cars otherwise it would have been a lot worse. Made a great overtake on xterminator at the chicane on the last lap. Congrats to phenom on the win (and good luck in the title fight?) and xterminator on the podium
