Won't be able to make it tonight unfortunately as I'm going out later and when I get back I've got a load of coursework to finish

Lads can't make it tonight. Way too much University work to do for a deadline on Tuesday. Enjoy a banterless race without me

I though so but it wasn't enough. I think we are very similar pace tier and every small mistakes costs.
The idea to start with softs was good but I made a pit stop too late. While I was driving behind you I made a stop same lap as you because I thought 14 seconds will be enough to prepare a pitlane but it wasn't so I lost about 2 seconds. Also @TheGiant19 pitted 2 laps earlier and he jumped me by over 8 seconds.

You probably would’ve been better pitting a lap earlier and getting the undercut. I only went to 17 because I didn’t really have much to lose and was just kinda chilling

Yeah I'm surprised you left it as late as you did, as we had fresh tyres from the start you could have easily got 11/12 laps like I did on the supers, and once I'd pitted to get the undercut I definitely thought you'd respond the next lap, especially as I'd caught you in the laps leading up to that and you seemed to be struggling on your tyres

Yeah it was a tactical mistake... I thought i will tell you what I thought in race time about the tactics but i decided not to because it was too stupid :D
And also statistics... Two redbull drivers can't get a good result :D
