Thought I had done my race report haha.

Qualifying - P11
A wet qualifying for once! Set a few laps on the wet tyre which was enough to put me in the top 10, before going for a final two laps at the end on Inters. Unfortunately, I exceeded track limits on the exit of T5 and invalidated my final lap. I finished the lap still to find it would have been good enough for 9th or 10th, which would have resulted in my first top 10 qualifying finish of the season... Ah well. In the end, I qualified just off it in P11.

Race - P11
Rain was expected for the end, so the plan was to start on the Mediums until it arrives. Then I thought I may have made the wrong choice as on the formation lap, I was told rain would be arriving in 10 minutes... Didn't have a great start as I lost two positions on the first lap. I soon overtook my teammate who was falling back through the field, while I ended up having @F1_Dan to battle, who I managed to hold off until Lap 7 when he finally got past. Not much else happened for the rest of the stint, but I did struggle at the end of it when it started raining but wasn't time to change tyres yet, which allowed @ELIT3_gam3boy to catch up. I pitted Lap 18 and made a complete mess of it, almost losing control of the car as I cross the line 13mph over the limit, awarding me with a stop-go penalty haha.

I exited in P13, quickly becoming P10 as more pitted on the next lap. Heavy rain arrived but after what happened in Mexico... I was firmly determined to finish the race on Inters, unless literally everyone else came in haha. @JammyJames had an incident going up the hill which saw him pit, before I went too deep at T1 which gave @louisw03 the perfect opportunity to pass me at T4. (Who may I add, had an amazing run in the rain! Nice job man!)
After that, it was just about getting to the end where I took the line in P9! Before my stop-go penalty ruined it and dropped me to P11...
