P4. Buzzing with that result because I was not confident heading into this.
Yeah I noticed that myself, that really confused me when I was in the pits and you passed me yet no dot was in sight.:wtf:Did anybody else have a bug with the mini-map? My dot was invisible. I could only see everybody else's dots. It was pretty weird.
Very strange. I've never experienced that beforeYeah I noticed that myself, that really confused me when I was in the pits and you passed me yet no dot was in sight.:wtf:
Though something that did catch my eye during the SC period, I had 2 SC dots on the map with one at the front and one in the middle of the pack, I can only assume the SC in the middle was you. Don't know why the game would make you a SC dot, but once the SC pitted the other SC dot disappeared as well, that may be the explanation of why your dot disappeared.
Unlucky mateDrove my heart out today.
Qualified 6th, was on to go 1.2s quicker with my final lap but got a cut on the final chicane of the lap.
Another good start and I think I was up to 2nd or 3rd half way around, then I locked up at the end of the back straight having forgotten to change my brake bias so instead of trying to get round on a wide angle potentially hitting the barrier I went down the escape round and quickly lit the rears up to spin around. SC emerged just after I recovered in 8th so got bunched back up again.
Hybrid set up seemed to work well, still lacked the raw dry pace but seemed to be the fastest person on intermediates. Gained the lead at this point, was going to go 2x US but knowing rain was coming back but not sure how far before the end, I went with SS on the assumption of stopping late for wets again, instead it was nearly getting to the end on them.
Defending lap after lap in dry conditions
and some good battles before Ash eventually got me as the tyres were becoming a handful.
Start of the penultimate lap I break my wing, 20s gap back to 3rd, decide to be brave and try and limp home. Probably could have done but the rain made it even harder.
Final lap, mid way around, car just slides straight on into the wall. Heartbreaking, but tolerable given how fun the race was and being at front.
My first lap after the SC was sweet as hell.
Went from about 7th to 2nd.
Got those penalties too, M8.Q: 15th
Well...that was no fun at all. Got 2 drive through penaltys for falling too far behind SC, crew cheif told me to go to Inters. Pitted when SC came to get out of the way of people (was in 5th), changed to Inters and came out on track with no control... Damaged my wing badly, tried to get back to pits with warning that I have to serve my drive through within 2 laps. Crew cheif, again, had a change of strategy and then on the bridge (the dry bit) the car snapped on me an there went front right...:banghead:
Next up is the Re-run of Canada, can't say that I look forward to that one either.
