I always seem to bottle it if I put in too much practice, so I'll just stick to my 4 laps and be done with it
Very much the opposite for me, China is the only one I properly practiced for and it's my only good race of the season #SweatConfirmed #Exposed

Can't attend and would be best to withdraw from the league. Other situations have taken precedent and Sunday is no longer a day I can commit to

Could you send a PM to Taz please with the reasons as well so he sees it immediately once he comes back?

Q: P9 happy with the time, not so much with the position
R: P7 first of all sorry again to @SimplyAPanda, I missed my breaking point going into the hairpin and would have ran straight into the back of you had I not avoided, unfortunately I avoided to the apex and you hit me when you turned in. After this I was near last and then a few laps later @Duchene was going slowly for some reason, and I came up to him at the corner before the straight and as he was still on the apex I was a bit indecisive and made a mess of the overtake and gave myself wing damage...
Then pretty much nothing happened, the one stop I did gave me a couple of positions but I'll take 7th around a track I don't like and that I'm not that good at. Luckily this was the 5th race so although I'm clutching at straws this 5th streak is still alive. Onto Monaco, a track I like even less and am completely useless at, last of the finishers is absolutely the aim and even then it's probably a stretch

Race Report:

Qualifying:

Was a very good quali, very close, was happy with my lap, got P6 which I think was fair

Race:

I got a good start but while 3 wide alongside @Pickles36 I was pushed onto the kerb (not blaming Sean, just wasn’t much space)

Then I slowly gained positions, @AOR Charlie went wide or something which was a free position, then I overtook @nemura, then @IS Vandoorne retired, found myself 5th after the first pit stops, I went 1 stop as most other went 2 stop

As everyone else made their 2nd stop, @ihaycheese rejoined in front (gg on the win), but @Im_an_eagle and @Pickles36 were behind, Eagle caught up quickly and we had a decent battle but I made a mistake giving Eagle the position for P2, I tried to come back into turn 1 but got caught on the kerb and had worn tyres. Then @Pickles36 couldn't quite catch me by the end, so P3 in the end for me, 2nd podium of the season. Overall a fun race but not looking forward to Monaco
