You guys are so quiet.

You can talk you know?

What's the track like in these cars? Are you looking forward to the season? Any ambitions?

Ah we can? Fantastic.

Well, the track is pretty terrifying in these cars, the kerbs are death. It's a fun challenge though. Definitely looking forward to the season but don't exactly have high expectations, if I can have a clean race tonight I'll be happy. Maybe scrape a point or two if there is some chaos up front.

Yet another avoidable lap 1 crash


Hoping the culprit gets a word from the Stewards. ;)
Although he did maneuver on the grass properly before rejoining the track and losing control.

I towed to the pits but had "too much damage" and was forced to retire.


A part from the above I spent the whole first lap being unnecessarily checked up in the corners and avoiding an accident or two.
Guys, you don't always have to go side by side in every corner on the first lap; you lose a lot of time in this way :)


I tested very little this week and was not at ease with car and track.
First lap in qualify was good without pushing (36.3) so I tried to take some risk in lap 2... and damaged my car on one of the curbs, losing speed in the 3rd lap.
I might have been able to go 3 tenths quicker but it would not have changed too much.

Unfortunately my wheel has packed up before the sprint which is why I had a really long brake pedal that I didn't quite realise until I'd collected Patrick, so please accept my apology Patrick and anyone else put off by the incident. In hindsight I should have sat the race out, rather than rely on a quick calibration.

I'm gonna be out for the next month at least whilst I get my wheel fixed so I'm gonna have to drop out and become a reserve which is really really annoying because I wanted to have a solid season having made a lot of positive improvements especially around the quality of my driving.

Sorry once again, hope to see you all on track soon once I'm repaired.

I did not expect that there was someone joining the track loosing his car, but i thought the rules were very clear that you must safely joining the track? in my case i did a flying corkscrew into the pits and i got a penalty for speeding in the pitlane ;) funny feature-race :p
