Formula 4 1st Driver

haha I streamed the race and I said online, when you came up to the back of me "This could be a very long 16 minutes folks". Not quite sure how I kept you behind me, couple of moments where I had to go ultra defensive and just about kept in front of you. Everytime you made a slight error and gave me some breathing room, I then made a slight error and back you came haha. Good fun though, clean racing.Looks like Nürburgring isnt made for 40+ cars doing a formation lap. But besides that, it also makes for a great turn 1 crash. I know that I never perform in the first race off any season but im sure I made it to turn 1 in those. The picture explains itself. Still had fun nontheless. @Welchy10 hope to see you in my mirrors next time xD.

EDIT: No I am not turning for the corner. There was only one way I could go, and that was straight.
The same however cannot be said for that carnage on T1. In fact im not calling it T1 as we didnt even make the first dam corner. I watched the replay back, It all started way further up the field and cascaded back. The issue wasn't the way in which it started, its how incredibly stupid people where, trying to full throttle their way through the carnage. I got hit at least 5 or 6 times by various cars. I had slowed to avoid and got battered. Like @MisterJasper in the picture, I too had to drive at a very weird angle back to the pits. Take into account the 1 minute at least travel time to the pits, the 2 minute 10 second pit stop, it was effectively race over.
Glad I didnt quit out and at least had a bit of fun but that the vast majority of that was totally avoidable. If your near the back of the grid, you have to be prepared to brake early in case of incidents. Get through first few corners then start to make moves.
