That was quite simply the most depressing race I've had. Felt like I was pushing the car and she just wasn't giving me anything back.....

My race was a Bit better than the last but far from ideal, frontwing damage in the 3rd lap... :/ that means i have to make a 2 stop .
Last 12 Laps on Ultras i drove how i should be, great fight from p12 to p8.
Im sorry for the guy who crashed with me last lap, i lost Control a Bit an I think i touched you
But yes, First two points in My second league race ever, i think its ok.

Good job top 3.

Horror show for me @Alex Shield dissapered on the formation lap didn’t even start the race on my screen! Got a good start up to 2nd going for a 2 stop came out the pits caught @TheogGR1 by about 3 seconds in two laps he then pushed me off the track on a STRAIGHT so that was nice of him. I then caught back up a lap or something later he then punts me in the wall what a guy bye bye my front wing race over retired in the pits. @TheogGR1 all the time you must leave the space like I did for you!

What? Maybe you should ask for my pov before you start blaming me. Look at my video and tell me that I punted you off... As for leaving space, when did you leave me space? I gave you space when you tried two times to do a late lunge at the hairpin and later at the wall of champions I gave as much room as I could, so not really sure what you are on about.

@TheogGR1 yeah I should have looked at your footage first but I was frustrated at the time. I was probably net p1 with a undercut on a different strategy and you just pushed me on the grass for no reason. There was no lunge you brake early, I don’t even lock up I make the apex and slow down to leave you space on the exit of hairpin.
I apologise see you next race

Why doesn’t your wheel turn? That’d put me off so much haha

Q: P3

Went into my final run well down the order with a lot of pressure on for a good lap. The lap was a little scruffy but into the final sector I was purple and my legs were already jelly from the pressure. At the hairpin I braked waaaaay too early and probably cost myself maybe 2 tenths, and knew I had to ace the final chicane without invalidation for a decent result. Thankfully I did it, and honestly this was probably the most pumped moment of my AOR racing career xD

R: P2

I lost a position to @TheMightyBucket- on the start as a result of @Alex Shield being RIDICULOUSLY slow through turns 1 and 2. I believe this had a knock-on effect and caused @F1_Dan at least to get damage, and personally I don't know how I managed to avoid wing damage. Not what I like to see at all but I'm sure it wasn't intentional. For the next few laps I spent my time behind two warping cars and unable to make any progress until Bucket pitted. Then I was able to make quick work of Alex with a nice move around the outside of the hairpin, and I was then able to set my sights on @JammyJames. I gained slightly in the pits as I was able to hold him up by being 3 seconds back, but then emerged with many more cars to negotiate. Again, I made quick work of @SolidNinjaSnake who let me through very respectfully, and was able to avoid a stranded Bucket in the wall of champions. I caught @TheogGR1 and @VSR_Jake in good places to make quick passes, and set a great time of a 12.0 in the process. Then it was a while before I caught @99Pipmatt, and having caught him in a dodgy place I was able to save some ERS behind him before making a pass at the end of the lap, and make a charge towards James. I think he made a slight mistake which I was able to pounce upon and put him under pressure into turn one, but he chopped my nose off in firm fashion. I then ended up with a run on him into turn 3, and as much as I didn't want to be, I ended up on the inside. I probably should've backed out but it seemed like I had a big grip advantage for me to be suddenly alongside, so I didn't. In the end he turned in for the line and contact was made. I pooed myself but somehow managed to keep it out of the wall. I cooked my tyres in the process and from there in I had to save them, ERS and fuel and hope James would get an extra penalty. It never came, and so I settled into P2 and took a VERRRRRYYYYYY cautious final lap to make sure my tyres didn't give up or I got another needless penalty.

P2 in the end. Points back in the championship but a definite missed opportunity. In the end I think I drove a good race, especially considering it is my first on my new wheel, and in the end learned some lessons for the future so I can't complain too much. Congratulations on the win @JammyJames - I expect to see you at the front more often now ;) Great race also from @Mikkel Sørensen with fantastic pace at the end, and a shout out for my teammate @F1_Dan doing a great race considering the wing damage.

On to France :/

Qualifying
Always planned to start on the Ultrasoft tyre. I was pleasantly surprised at the times I did on the Supersoft and Ultrasoft, a good job too or I'd have been even further behind everyone! After those two runs, I found myself in P13 and opted to go out again but on the Hypersoft, with the goal of grabbing just 11th. Unfortunately, I invalidated the lap at the final chicane before even starting the flying lap! I decided to carry on just to see what time I could have done and surprisingly, I only managed to match my Ultrasoft run. So in the end, I qualified P15.

Race
Did we have more than 17 cars in this race? Haha. I'll get onto that but first I opted to start on the Supersoft to go long into the start. I eventually dropped to the back and just didn't have the pace of everyone else. Lap 4 and an incident happened with @TheogGR1 at the hairpin which gained me a place, quickly followed by another at the final chicane.

Skip to Lap 9 and it felt like I was being overtaken by everyone! I'm sure every lap I got overtaken by those pitting haha. This lasted for a good number of laps, not exactly a great feeling either but ah well. Eventually I pitted myself on Lap 21 for the Ultrasoft, rejoining in last place.

Then I finally seemed to decide to show some sort of pace! Whether it was legit or others had issues, I have no idea. In the end after penalties and a few retirements, I was glad to see the finish line and finished in P12.

Not much more to be said, except that it was a very tough race for myself.
