After qualifying in 1st and having decent pace I'd have hoped for better than 7th. Not used to racing in dirty air and it's costing me big time, I'm simply not quick enough at the moment. Enjoyed a good battle with @Pickles36 at the end, great racing! However seem to be getting contact every race, was dived up the inside a little bit recklessly this time which damaged my wing for the last 11 laps.

Won't be around for the Russian GP, I'm away for the weekend. Enjoy the race fellas!

Well that race was...interesting. I'm still up for restarting it btw. Qualified P4 which I was happy with and was where I roughly expected to be. Then T1, I managed to avoid the incident involving Charlie and Vandoorne amongst others by cutting underneath them but as I went to accelerate someone was attached to me behind me so I couldn't really go anywhere and ended up 11th out of T2. Then in the final corner I hit @nemura in the back and got yellow wing damage and it made me decide to go for the 1 stop. It did me well as I was in 4th towards the end before I lost a position to @Rcfly3r1 in what was a good battle before I disappointingly made the pass easy by going off track. Crossed the line P5 on track...again, probably will do the same in Russia before my bad tracks start to come. Congrats to the podium finishers

Why do people want to restart? I was in a different party so did not hear the disscussion

I kept saying it as a joke in the party the race was generally a mess, not just with people ruining their (and possibly others) races but the game fucked people too, and I am continuing said joke here

I got reset to default too, pretty sure everyone did, level playing field don't see why there's a need to do a restart

Yea most people noticed it into the run down for T1 with the brakes and then checked the down force and it was at 6 so most changed it at the pitstops

Did anyone else disconnect before or during the race?

@SimplyAPanda had the same issue last week what i had this race but fortunate for him he could start the race, does anyone know if this is a glitch (game telling you that i signed off on my account)?

I had same issue a month ago. When I connected to MP (GTA, F1 etc.) after 2-3 mins I got DC from my account. I don't know who caused the problem but after one week of these nonsences everything went to normal. I read the internet I talked with my internet provider but by them everything was ok.

The game seems slightly unstable in terms of connectivity it seems it’s just luck of the draw on who has a DC

I had this issue when I disconnected last week, told me I signed out of my profile so lost Xbox live but then was signed back in again straight away

The one thing I can be proud of myself after this race is - 20 laps on Soft tyres :stig: (93% rear at lap 29 :lol: )
