Want to add though that it's a real shame that the number of drivers is dropping so much.

Quali: P12
Race: P8

Comments: Arrived late which cost me dearly, as the quali had already gone underway, and had to start with default setup, after having made a pretty good one. Nevertheless, thought I had to give it my all for a good result. Had a decent get away, but later on lap 3 went for a move and got unlucky with the brakes locking up at the apex, meaning I was round and down to p10. Had to recover all the way back up and managed to do so with surprisingly good tyres, and was fighting with Malaske throughout most of the race (it was an amazing battle by the way, wanted to pull away but you were incredible). Later I started to get frustrated and pushing too hard, meaning I got a penalty for corner cutting, and tyres were starting to fade away, so I knew there was much to go for, so decided to pit for supers at the end in order to test if I could get fastest lap, but sadly I had to battle and with that lost a chance to do so. Very disappointed at the end with the result, when I easily had the pace to fight for the win if I had the setup and qualified but oh well, onto Singapore next week.

not the most enjoyable league to be honest due to the racing not being as good on 2017 as it was on 2016 IMO. I don't do near as much practice as I used to do, I started practising at 7 tonight! Although I enjoyed that race!

My highlights. Created a crucial 10 second gap in the first stint and and from the pit stop a flawless drive to the finish :)

Couldnt get a clean run in qualifying. Could have been around 4th. I tend to have better luck at races when I start near the back though. And this one was a good one. Had lots of action. Mixed it up with almost everyone Except @de-thomas. Lost too much time and fuel battling with everyone else to catch up in just a 50% race. Had fun. I think this is my longest highlight video.

R: got held up a bit on the first few laps but got past and back into 2nd and drove well until my in lap where my tyres were struggling and the issue of not knowing where the pit lane limiter line was cost me a lot of time. Went on to the mediums and struggled all the way until the end but reasonably happy with 4th

Malaysia.
Again a lobby messed up!!
People leaving, lagging, ghosting, arriving to late without note,,driving the wrong car and for what it looks like, we had 2 different races / lobbies.
I don't know why I should take this tier seriously anymore, if no one wants to obey the rules.

Why did you put me in 9th position? I was finished in 2nd. At least you can put me finishing in 3rd, because i was behind @Malaske before the connection problem(like you’ve said)

@pepper_F1
What were you doin in the Red Bull??
The reason as to why I was on the Red Bull is purely by the fact that I unfortunately arrived slightly late, and when I joined the lobby the qualifying session had just started, so as you well know, once the session starts, you're not allowed to change your car, so I could only go with whatever the game decided to put me on, it wasn't my choice to go on the Red Bull.

I've put you in 9th position because you were DSC from the "main" lobby.
All race results except yours showed you finished 9th.
That's just the way it goes with unstable and messed up lobbies.
Sorry about that.
