Got sandwiched into Turn 6 by f1ben and by the time i could actually turn the car i was already into P15. The lag was a joke. Kept freezing for 5 seconds then eventually threw me out of the lobby.

Yeah a lot of lag for me today too, pretty much ruined my race by someone lagging into my front wing and causing damage, but that's online racing I guess!

As for me today it was one to forget, didn't get a great lap in qualifying and my race pace in the wet was abysmal!

Had a nice clean battle with Soggy Cabbages though!

Only way is up from here!

Congrats to Sims on the win!!

Qualifying (19th) - Disastrous. Cut a corner on both of my laps and came last.

Race (DNF) - Disastrous. Had a decent start for the first two corners but then got on the kerb too much on exit, took Okaui with me into the wall (sorry!). Lost a piece of my front wing and lacked pace for the rest of the race, until I got too much kerb and lost the back end and it threw me into the wall again, this time ending my race.

Guys. The host HAS to change going forward for the rest of the season. It's a joke. Chesney hosted 75% of the races in this tier last season so why it got changed is beyond me @Chris Leather

Yeah probably agree tbf, I hosted some of last season and it was fine. Strange, my internet must just hate some of you.

My race I what I expected this is the worst track for me.
No problem @Chesney I had a front wing damage before that incident. I hit the back of @Jackerius car on turn 1 sorry because of that.

Annoyed at myself with the final result.

Just missed out on qualifying in the top 10 on a set of softs so started 12th

Went to the back of the pack after turn 1 as spun on someone’s rear tyre. However, that meant I didn’t get involved with the huge turn 5 incident. Managed to get myself up to P5 with a great wet stint! Then did the soft,super soft to the end and on course for at least P6 but spun it and finished P9

If only the whole race was wet!

That P2 was for you Avicii
Weldone to sims for winning the race , I came from starting on p4 got a good start and passed p3 into turn 1 then when the pit stops came I managed to jump Alonso in the pits and that gave me p2 , I had some decent speed in the wet and I could keep up with sims but when the dry came back sims pulled a gap so I’m happy with P2 at the end , weldone to everyone who participated in the race see you all in round 3

Have to agree with @Rob | PePsii host needs to change the lag wasn’t fun! I had cars teleporting in front & behind me all the time! @Chesney hosted most of last season and we didn’t have any problems @Chris Leather
As for my race less said about that the better could of been on for solid points if I didn’t balls it up haha

Qualifying 2nd: A decent banker lap got me second on the grid as i messed up my 2nd run

Race 3rd: I held my position for the first few laps and was able to stick with Sims but during the crossover period I lost touch. Then I got jumped by Buckley in the pitstop phase. Then i had no pace in the rain. Thankfully the rain stopped and I switched onto slicks for the final stint. I was able to close the gap to buckley from 6 seconds to 2 seconds setting a fastest lap until someone beat it on fresher tyres. I wasn't able to get any closer and had to settle for 3rd. Congrats to sims on the win and Buckley in second
