Good Race today guys,

unfortunately turn 1 was abit hectic with cars spinning infront and i lost my front wing so had to pit on lap 1,

Caught back up later and had a good 10 laps ish fight with R.A.J, eventually he pipped me just as i was on my Pitting in lap. and then again 5 laps or so later after R.A.J pitted we were fighting again, so had a good fun race even it we were fighting for 10th and 11th! :D

Excellent race for me. Started outside top 10 so i had fresh rubber for the race.
Decided to go cautiously into turn 1, and jumped from p13 to p9. Ovetook FOOTYAD at the end of back str8. He tried to pass me into turn 1 (L2) but he overshot the corner, I took the racing line we bumped wheels but all was good. And after that I just tried to be consistent. In the second half had a short battle with Kurvz and Dazzy but decided to let them go bcs I was a pitstop behind. After pits, was giving my best to stay ahead of scot, In the end P5.
:happy::joyful::lol: :D

Champion! (y) Wasn't expecting that when I signed up for this season but very happy about it! :p

Qualy didn't go the way I wanted, set a decent banker lap with a 1:37.3xx which allowed me to get provisional P2 on the grid. However, as I was going a couple of tenths faster than my first laptime, I bottled it massively at the penultimate corner and couldn't not improve on my second attempt. A bit frustated by that but it's still P2 on the grid - a result I was expecting because @Metten was always a bit faster than me in qualy this week :p

Took a good start off the grid and was side by side with @Metten at turns 1 & 2 but I had to lift off a bit coming onto the 'S' section to avoid contact and kept P2. Then it was a very good & clean battle with him for the entire first stint. (y) I was faster in the 'S' section, he was faster in sector 3 but I could follow him thanks to slipstream & DRS. I had good overtaking opportunities especially in the back straight and at turn 12 but couldn't quite get the move entirely done. Both of us went into the pits at the end of lap 9 and I very surprisingly managed to jump @Metten into the pits, not sure what happened with his pitstop but I exited the pits in front of him and in provisional P1.

A few laps later, we caught @Julien2395 who was running in 1st but who had not pitted yet. Managed to overtake him quite quickly into turn 1 but @Metten couldn't and I pushed very hard to create a gap and to gain as much time as I could. The gap between me and @Metten was between 2 and 3 seconds for 10 laps but he started to gain time over me by the end of the race, closing the gap to less than a second in the very last laps of the race. In the last lap, I did a slight mistake at the end of the 'S' section which allowed @Metten to have a go through the back straight and to make the move stick at turn 12. Tried to make a move round the inside at turn 15 but my tyres were dying and I couldn't get P1 back. Finished the race in P2 but got promoted to P1 because of @Metten's 3-second time penalty.

But that was probably one the most exciting races of the season for me! (y) Was nice to battle with you @Metten, clean & fair, no contacts, had a lot of fun tonight! :) Congratz to @KurvZ for his second podium of the season! Well done mate!

So yeah, happy to win the championship and now aiming for the constructors' with @Jipper! Hopefully we can grab this one as well next week at Brazil!

Cya next week for the last race! :)

PS: @ChokDK forgot to post the last two positions of qualy, so here they are :p @H_pro1 @FisiFan91
