Damn it. Clip front tyre as headed to pits and lost a wheel. Had wing damage from turn 1 but was minor but enough to cause a lot of undereteer. Better luck next week.

Good race everyone.

I qualified 3rd and finished the race 4th, so quite pleased for my first race.

I had been planning to start on the super soft tyres, and did my first flying lap on them which put me 7th. However, from the lap times I thought I could get third on the ultra so changed strategy.

The race was pretty uneventful on the whole. I got slightly too deep into 1 relative to the Williams cars on the front row at the start. I had a minor bang of wheels with 1 of them out of T1. I thought it best to back out slightly to untangle our wheels and let them go through eau rouge unhindered.

After that I plodded round in 3rd for quite a while. Not a lot happened in the first stint. The Williams guys were quicker than me and pulled a 5 second gap or so. I waited til lap 6 to pit to avoid traffic. That worked quite well. However, I was really slow on the soft tyres. I could see I could stop again without losing 4th so decided to do that for supers. I was partially hoping the car in 3rd (sorry I forget names) was one stopping for softs, but they were 2 stopping for supers. I couldn’t catch them and finished about 5 secs behind. I maintained the gap to the car behind as well so finished in a clear piece of track.

Certainly I did better than I was expecting before the race started.

You done really well this week, especially as it was your first race. I was so nervous towards the end as if I made any mistakes you would’ve caught up and applied pressure to me. Congrats on a good first race and congrats again to everyone who finished!
