Up and down race again, took it extra safe through turn 1 then unfortunately @Philip_66 broke very early for following corner and caught me out completely, red front wing and had to pit which was rubbish. Then it was pretty boring race up until lap 31 when it started to rain and managed to get up to 8th. Just a shame again the extra pitstop cost me a few places(n)

Really need to sort out my qualifyings. Did a 1.06.7 but invalidated that by a stupid minor corner cut. Would have put me P5 or something but instead I was 9th with a 1.07.000.

Started very cautious, whicht resulted in 2 whole laps without damage (which was very refreshing). Then on lap 3 two cars collided and I couldn't avoid @Malaske his spinning car. Wing damage again. Pitted for softs with the intention to make it to the rain. Got overtaken by a few guys on softer tyres. Just made it to the rain, my tyres were really going of the cliff. Overtook two or so drivers in the pits and again was gaining a lot on @Malaske, exactly being close to him in the last lap. Vanoss ran wide in the last sector, allowing me to go down the inside, after which he decided to put me straigt into the wall. So P7 for now, should have been (or was) P6 but could have been P5 maybe.

Nice recovery after Baku, lost chances to victory when I couldn't secure my 2nd position. Got there with undercut but FABRI was too quick today and he deserved his victory! When rain started I spun into the pits and had to take other set of SS but luckily I didn't lost positions there. I changed my driving style an hour before this race so I hope I'm more confident with it in the next race. And last thing, Finnish soldier won't retreat

Awful. Just awful.

Qualy: 10th
Race: DNF

Qualy: Was on course to improve by around 2 tenths when I cut the 2nd to last corner. Bottled it once again.

Race: Not the best start but just about stayed in 10th. Then @Malaske seemed to get caught in an accident with somebody else (Forget who). I was unable to avoid them both and slightly damaged my front wing, which was so painful in the middle & final sectors. Made it tomy 1st stop and went for a set of ultra softs. This stint was fairly straight forward with nothing really happening. With around 16/17 laps to go, I came in for a set of super softs. A couple of laps later @Francis mcginn spun on the exit of turn 2. As their car returned to the racing line, I tried to avoid it but it wasn't meant to be. Front wing gone.

After that, I pretty much gave up. Just drove to the end. Until on the final lap when I had an incident with @Jai Fletcher . My screen was showing him on soft tyres on a wet track and I could see he was struggling. On the exit of turn 2, he seemed to make a mistake. I made a move to unlap myself. Coming down into turn 3, he had got back alongside so I braked to give him the corner. For some reason he pulled right across into my car pushing me into the wall. Race over.

So a race of getting caught up in other peoples crashes. Congrats to all the podium finishes. Bring on Silverstone.

Q: 7
R: 5

Another bad qualifying performance. started in 7th. Got through the first few laps and keeping up with leaders. On lap 3 @Francis mcginn got by me. Then he took too much curb and got all squirly. I thought I could squeeze by. But he came back across and I hit his rear. This got me into a slide and Poor @de-thomas got stuck on me and we ended up in the gravel. Broke part of the wing and had to switch strategies. @de-thomas and I switched places a few times always on different tires/strategies. Then the rain came and we were on equal ground since we both chose to pit for inters with only 4 laps left. He was gaining on me. He may have even been able to make a lunge in the last corner. But @Jai Fletcher had gone off track and conveniently decided to came back on track as we were passing. I was able to avoid him. But @de-thomas was not so lucky. I finished 5th. 24 seconds behind @fabri1699. Had I not been greedy on lap 3, I think a podium was there.

Q: Pole
R: 3rd

Only got myself to blame, Vannos' jump start kinda put me on the back foot from the start and some silly errors dropped me to 3rd. Shame I couldn't convert for the win but still some good signs heading into next week.

Congrats Fabri on the win and @Senaattori on P2
