One thought remains in the back of my head going into this one: unless Dobby DNFs, it's game over. Too many points behind in the standings to have a shot at the title.

Well, I'm happy I was able to find my feet in this championship. I went from P14 to P2 in the standings, and that's good enough for me. Now I just want to finish my season with a 50% podium rate.

GG Dobby. If I had been able to grow as fast as you did, things could be different.

I'm struggling so much to find a good setup for a balanced and stable car around this track. I like Suzuka in 2017, but man, it's harsh to save some time on your runs

im happy with the race. Absolutly no incident and a flawless race besindes ine stupid corner where i got distracted because jeff suggested an alternate strategy..

At least @Saketh could finally pass me that way. Didnt want a faster car behind me anyways, but i couldnt just let you pass because i tryed to backup @Steffe.

What winge wers u using? i had 3/10 with 10 ballast,

Qualy : 8th
Could have gone faster, didn't manage. **** it

Race : 9th SS/M/S
Got pushed away from the racing line by @Bobo going into the hairpin on lap 1 whereas we were side by side. Got me an orange front wing needing repair on the first lap. Managed to claw back my way up to 9th. Too bad we didn't have more laps, I was homing in on @Kevin Kalt

Congratz on your WDC @Dobby the bitch !

Qualy : 1st - First pole ever! :D
I dont think many people realised that the rain was easing with every minute, so I tried to do my 2nd flying lap as late as it was possible. Worked.

Race : 3rd SS / S
Return got a fantastic start and passed me easily in T1. I didnt want to defend too hard as I'm more like a bottling driver :). I was soo nervous when Dobby passed me, tried to stay out of his way as much as I could, didnt want to decide the championship with a silly accident. Didnt realise that Sabath was so close to him and tried to stick in somewhere in Sector 1, felt that he hit my back and was like "NOOOO he must have got a front wing damage" (Fortunately he didnt). At the end of sector 1, let him pass me too. When I realised later on that he is not that much faster than me, started to push him and did an undercut in the pits. 2nd place was bottled, he was like 2.3seconds behind already. In Lap 21, my wife was ringing me constantly on skype and didnt even hear the engine sound. She kept me ringing till the end of the race after that. Sabath overtook me in sector 2 in the final lap, I accedintaly breaked too late and hit him a bit, but fortunately didnt cause too much trouble. Still happy with the 3rd place. 2 podiums in 3 races, wouldnt have thought when I joined :)
