There was a car that spun before the start straight also. Messed up the order a bit. Maybe need to lower the speed on the formation laps always give more time to react it did feel a bit to fast at times. I was very close to be taken out myself but thankfully he saved the situation by going into the gravel instead.

I had a great race. Pressure on forward and back the entire race. Romani followed me the entire first stint. Then my pit crew performed wonders. I suspect we shared the same pit stop? That allowed me some breething space. Worked hard to get on the third drivers back but just as I do I loose focus take some kerb in the uphill section go flying, land then go flying on another kerb, then just about manage to avoid the wall. I was lucky just loose 4 seconds there. But can´t complain though the car didn´t perform as well as yesterday for whatever reason.

I am speechless haha. What a great race that was, until it wasnt. Had a ton of pace in the boat out of nowhere and quali'd P4. Got a good start and held on until P2 and P3 took each other out. Ran in P2 for most of the race, had a great pit stop which cut the leader's lead from 6 seconds to 2. had some crazy laps chasing himh some crazy traffic. Gap down to 1.5 seconds. Im having the race of my life and probably the best result i can hope for this season in this tier coming up. 12 mins left and i DC. First DC in any AOR race i believe. Absolutely gutted but hey, thats racing lol I guess that's kunos' way of simulating mechanical failures. XD

Several people, including me were still unsure about the "odds on the inside relative to the track direction" rule. Formation zone was in difficult spot. I think it was an coordination issue as well. Could be wrong but I think previously, out of all the evals+practices, I've attended, the coords have had their lefts, rights, evens and odds verbally mixed up too, on one or two occasions. Even though the in-game formation's been compatible up to this point. This time there were no mix-ups. There barely was any communication. P1 quickly confirmed his lane and speed limit and the coord saying "yup" and go. People just not focusing. Hoped to see an abort.

I was in T1 practice and there was no communication at all. Everyone seemed to know what they're doing. Up until the actual racing started :D

I think that people who blatantly swear out loud in discord, during the race - need to be dealt with.

You are on push to talk, and still take time to yell your profanity into a group chat with 30 + drivers, some of whom are streaming etc...

No idea how to police it or report it, but people need to grow up. Keep quiet, report it to the stewards.
