Well played mate you absolutely dominated that race and QualiAnother win! I qualified 1st. The start was a mess, everyone was getting hit. After the turn one crashes, I might have pushed someone off on accident. (Sorry to whoever it was) after that I broke my front wing twice. The rain was a mixed blessing as I am very good at driving on intermediates. After everyone pitted for full wets, I inherited the lead and stayed there. (Sorry @Cinnamon Rage I don't have any video for you. Nothing exciting happened.)
What lap did you retire on?Quali: 0 practice = 0 pace, so qualified in a very average 9th. Set up my car to be fast in the race though so not all hope was lost.
Race: I was all in my mirrors for the first two laps, and managed to progress up to the top 5 and onto the back of the two RT93 boys. Once I got into a rhythm I managed to overtake both (cleanly - go me) and was pulling out a gap to them whilst holding down third place. However I was harsh on my rears when I started pushing and my car slid into the first corner on lap 9, sent me spinning round lost all the progress i had made. I dropped back into 5th and pitted the next lap. My pace was strong again on the soft tyres, but I made the rookie error of leaving my phone within my field of vision. I saw a notification flash up just as I entered the castle section. This took my attention off my turn in just for a split second, and I turned too early and lost my whole front wing. I knew this was going to put me a good 40secs - a minute behind the battle i was in so I chose to retire, mainly out of self-rage.
Sorry about my lag. There is nothing else I can do to improve my connection. My family stays offline during my races and all other wi-fi devices are turned off. I can't get a better Internet plan either.Quali - Corner cut my first lap just before the castle so only had one shot. Was on a great lap, then managed to lose it during the kink on the main straight, probably costing me around a second, but started 4th so fairly happy.
Race - Took the first corner fairly easy, and managed to come out of it in first. @TyTEI was closing in on me, and I just let him past as he was lagging and I didn't want to have any contact with him. Jeff told me rain was coming, so thought there's no need to pit so stayed out on my SS until I pitted for inters. Then stupidly pitted for wets with like 5/6 laps to go even though I still came out in first. Then binned it on my out lap and had to pit...
Came out of the pits in 5th, and managed to get 4th on the second to last lap.
Stupid mistakes keep costing me good points.
Wont be racing next week so good luck to you all
I cant believe it! As soon as I came out of the pits after my first stop and saw that you were behind me I thought it was going to be a repeat of the first 2 races hahaMiles of in quali
Start of the race, very cautious into turn 1, still end up with wing damage as @RT93 Klaus nudged me into the path of the spinning @Cinnamon Rage :/
After that just plodded along and managed to get a couple more points...
Bonus that me and @Joshua Germany didn't make any contact, the gap between us kept getting bigger and smaller but ultimately I didn't have the pace to catch and pass
Also, Tytei's car was lagging, had to take avoiding action a few times even though I was miles behind him, luckily no damage but not great regardless.
