The most accidents at the practice race where caused by overtaking under blue flags.● Blue Flags, be safe letting people through and pick the right time for YOU to do it safely. LEADERS, you might have to be patient!!!
Off topic: I sure hope the names of them corners are being changed soon. They even sound horrible in the Dutch language.....View attachment 103191

Therefore look for the right spot. Please stay in front in the red areas!.
A second thing, be aware if someone go wide at turn 3(may a pink aston), there is normaly no chance to brake in the gras, so the car will cross the track again at turn 4...
You didn't but I was just behind Storm and it was weird how you suddenly stopped.
Well , i finally get AMG to be faster and stable and delight on front tires, wasnt expecting too much , but i was hoping to have good pace and dont destroy my tires to death in 15 minutesWhat to say.. I guess the stars aligned for me today! Had my first quali run without a car in front of me and put together a good lap. Didn't think I could do any better than that first run but somehow got lucky another time without cars close. During the week I was at least half a second slower in qualifying.
The race started and I instantly knew it wasn't going to be easy at all. I wasn't pulling away from @Lorda171 and after 5 laps I made a couple of mistakes which allowed @Lorda171 to overtake me. I believe his pace was better than mine, so the only chance I had was to go for an undercut. I thought it would be better to not really take extreme risks and just tried to follow him for the time being. The second time we were about to get in traffic I decided to risk it and pit. Managed to get two seconds in front of @Lorda171 after his pitstop but once again he was gaining time on me. Not much, but the gap went from two seconds to 0.8 seconds with a couple of laps to go. Thankfully traffic didn't give me much trouble (thank you to multiple drivers for that) and I maintained the one second lead. In the final laps @Lorda171 decided to make sure he kept P2, which finally after 56 minutes gave me a moment to breath. It was an intense race and I thank @Lorda171 for the great hot-stint kind of race.
Paul Ricard up next. Will once again be a big challenge, but if we all keep up this kind of fair racing - then I'm sure we're gonna have fun.
Would like to know if everyone thought the formation lap pace was alright or not.
