With the whole "Default setup lottery" that happened in the Aus race (With some people being under parc ferme and others not), I feel it would be fair to turn parc ferme off just so there aren't people who have setups and people who don't. Will make the racing a lot fairer and more consistent.

Just a suggestion ^^

Sigh.
Pretty decent Qualifying, got P4 with 32.6. Race was once again frustrating.
Battled with @PAPA SOKRATIS opening laps, but at the lap 3 I got distracted by a lag spike and went wide at the first corner. My rear tyres touched a grass and I spun, dropping me all the way to p9. I had pretty decent come back drive, but unluckily I just caught my team mate @TSR Vadkan15 when we needed to pit for inters. Therefore I lost at the pits couple of seconds. In the end I finished P7.
I had quite annoying lag spikes through the race. I have no idea, was it because lobby or maybe something with my computer like recording software etc.
At least got my opening points, just like my team mate as well (y) On to the Bahrain. See ya there :)
E: No I did not.

Well done to @n0body_ and @N1kmido on the podium.

My pace in quali wasn't great compared to race trim, and almost threw pole away with many mistakes in the final sector, but just about held on. Before the race I just tried to work my race strategy around the weather - almost failed it but still had just enough tyres left as the rain came. Then I had some fun drifting around on inters for the final stint :p this track is pretty good in the wet I see, plus my aggressive wing choice seemed to work better in those conditions.

Didn't expect to win by that much after seeing the quali results, but I avoided getting corner cuts which helped the winning margin somewhat. I lost power soon after the race ended, thankfully that didn't happen in the race itself. Cya in Bahrain!

Connection was good from my part. Race was already over for me as soon as I went on track. My quali laps were without an mistakes and I was nearly 3.5 seconds off my pace from various practice sessions. Before the race in strategy I noticed that I loaded the Monaco setup. Finished the race but thats all I could do. Never happened to me before. I thought I had a pace for a solid points finish. Pretty bad. Looking foeward to the next race to redeem myself

Wasn't a bad race for me all things considered, improvements were definitely made in the setup department compared to Australia (Cheers codies)

Qualifying was good, 32.5 to go p2, I could've snactched pole off @sigro if I didn't bottle the middle sector (Best in practice was a 32.2)

The race I was nowhere near @sigro on pace. He just kept pulling away and after the first stop it was basically confirmed if he didn't have any problems he would win. Got stuck behind @PAPA SOKRATIS for a few laps and then had a brilliant battle with him going side by side for about half a lap just before the rain came down (1 or 2 dive bombs may have been attempted :p)

I need to work on the corner cutting... I picked up 6 seconds worth of penalties with about 4 laps to go and had to really push to get a gap to @N1kmido, which resulted in a crazy save on the last lap.

Looks like it will be a fight for P2 this season, and hopefully I can win it ^^

The race went a bit worst than expected.
When I saw that only 14 people were on the grid, I decided to try to qualify on softs. Sadly as I noticed it won't be enough I tried to make a lap on SuperSofts but when the lap was only getting 0.3s better than on softs I decided to back-off.
I started on P12 on Mediums but sadly had a contact with SuoBBis on lap 3. Because of this I had to make an extra pit.
When it started to rain, I started to gain positions on the Inter's and ultimately finished P10.

Well that was an entertaining race! Lots of battling for position, weather chaos and a big variety of strategic possibilites. :joyful:

@SuoBBis I wasn´t happy with you giving me a hit and forcing me off at the end of lap 1. It looked like you didn´t give a **** at all that I was right next to you at the entrance of the final corner? :confused:


Congrats to @sigro for destroying the rest of the field twice in a row!
