Well , this Race ..... i wasnt expecting much , i really struggle on this track , and as i found out i was loosing 0.3-0.5 on straight , my top speed was 272-3 so , i didnt changed my tires and moved after pitting on 7 place with pace similiar to others. But i missed my braking point , lost about 1 second because i didnt cut (2nd chicken)and DT because i was about 10cm behind white line so my strategy was gone but overall from p15 to p11..... not that bad assuming my setup was bad

That was definitley damage limitation for me, if anyone would like to let me know the secret to sector 3 then I'm all ears. The 2 corners after the long straight I was losing so much time that the guys behind almost rear-ended me a couple of times, but I just couldn't take those corners any faster.
So I'm quite pleased to come out with P9 after all that, if I ever work out the way to get S3 hooked up I would be pretty decent at this track!!!

Got taken out on lap 1 by an audi driving into the side of me when I had the racing line into turn 3, then fighting back from last place I kept catching up with a slow Ferrari but he kept blocking me multiple times a lap, which is fair enough, but on a long left hander he went wide so I went down the inside only for him to drive into me. So back to last place again, then again a little while later, caught up with the same Ferrari again, got a good run onto start/finish straight after he went wide again, approaching turn 1 I was slightly ahead but the Ferrari pushed me off track before we hit the braking point.... Back to last place again trying to make up places yet again but I cut turn 1 a bit too much and got a DT. Race over for me...

This race had a "fight" in the start for the 19-25 position that was quite dramatic, a lot of mistakes and way too much fighting when there was 80+ minutes left.

It was thrilling tho
Agree, it was a bit unecessary, but again I don't complain, I only have myself to blame for lack of practice and for not having managed a better qualifying time.

I went for the (huge) gap on the last turn on a Bentley, can't remember the driver (and forgot to save my replay so only have the last hour); I may have been Senna on the last chicane of Suzuka right there, and the Bentley may have been Prost :p but I take my half of the blame as the dive came from quite far back. Ended up spinning and fell to last place, and just made a steady recovery to 18th from there.

As a nice ending to an otherwise mostly calm race, I ended up slotting in among the race leaders towards the end, and got a front row seat to see the battle that eventually decided 3rd place due to @Erzkbl9 running out of fuel. Congrats to the podium and to all drivers who got to the finish!

Night racing was a good change, hope for the championship to continue to be this dynamic with different scenario conditions, since the game allows for it :)
