I nickname myself #BottleViper... already, 2 races 2 poles, definitely had the pace to win but mucked it up in the rain then just bottled it. Still P3 ain't bad
Looked like a nightmare mate, better luck next time and hope you find the motivation you need!I honestly had no motivation to race this weekend. Had to force myself to even turn my Playstation on. Hopefully can find a way to get the motivation back for the rest of the season.
"Shut Up Jeff" is the command lol. You can say "F**k off Jeff" and he'll listen as wellIt's funny how on the last lap I was trying to get the engineer to be quiet as he talks too much on the final lap and didn't realise it was engineer quiet for the command, so I just ended up saying shut up Jeff :lol:
@RealJewell766 just seen the standings and saw that @RacingAtHome was given 10th but I think he should be given 6th. Use the end of my race as a referenceP5 to P8 Not a good result but had a couple of good battles. My qualifying laps weren't great, the one that got me 5th was dodgy in terms of corner cuttting and track extensions, and my last lap I bottled turn 1, and was trying too hard to make up time and went too wide at Pouhon and the lap got invalidated. Had a decent start, almost outbraked myself into turn 1 but made up a place. By lap 3 I was in P2 and seemed to have decent pace on the inters. When the track had dried out I felt that I missed the changeover point by 1 lap but it wasn't too bad cos only lost about 2s probably. After the stop I was chasing Bzahh for the lead and at turn 9 he went wide, I was about to pass him but there was a yellow flag and I sort of panicked and lost control of the car and ended up hitting Decca's left rear as he went past and got spun round. It was completely my fault Decca did nothing wrong. I made a hash of getting the car back on track and by then I was well down the field. For the next few laps I couldn't really get back into a rhythm so decided to pit onto mediums and go to the end. I made up a few place before getting overtaken by racingathome near the end. 6s penalties put me down in 8th.
In terms of where @RacingAtHome finished, he was about 2s ahead of me at the end so should be given 6th place. Finally, congrats on the win @ii_Deccaaaaa_ii
