Yeah what to say about yesterday.
Qualy Terrible ! Not able to drive my time i practiced for. Ending up in place 14 ah well so be it.

Race: start went pretty ok. gaining some places here and then in first lap. Then the **** start to happen. Got a black screen for 3 seconds or something. Great damage and i needed to rotate my wheel 360 degrees for a simpel corner. Broken and crying limping to the pitlane but my pitcrew was amazingly fast thanks guys ! haah damage repair in a few seconds damn thats quick i drive away again black screen !!!!!! aaaaaarhhh got 10sec pen because of that in the pit.

I was thinking what i should do just quit the race or just drive. I choose to drive since we still had almost whole race distance to go. I am glad i continued. Car felt good constistent so i made up places 24th ending up in P9 or 10 or something. Watched the race after on fisi stream notice my pace was around top 5 so that gives hope for the next races.

Found out what the freaking problem was with black screen...Windows like to update while gaming i really need to turn that **** off pffff

Gratz to @Vernux for winning the race..

Have to say it was a fun race! Messed up Q should have been in the 18s but it wasn't the end of the world knowing it was a long race.
The start was a little bit messy when we were going 4 wide to the first corner but don't think there were any major damage for anyone.

Had some nice battles with @Ycoms and @Andreas Hader. Going in to the last lap in P9 i tried to get a good exit at La Source so i could holf off @Jeff[NL] and @Andreas Hader behind me but was a little bit too aggresive on the throttle and made a nice piruett. Finished with a decent P10 after having too little practice because my PC has been acting up lately.

Congrats @Vernux @Jamoobaldy @Yorkie065 for the podium places

See you next week.. cheers

Really tough race for me, Qually went well with P2 and don't think the Mclaren had much more to give than that.
I struggled with warming the tyres on the formation lap and this led to a small moment coming out of Eau Rouge and lost me speed and a few places up the straight. Then to make things worse I locked up and ran wide into Les Combes loosing another place. As I came out of no name a few laps later there was a bollard sitting in the track which I couldn't manage to avoid and picked up some aero damage.
It cost me a lot of straight line speed and some front grip. Then in trying to compensate for increased understeer I hit another one on the inside coming onto the back straight after this I lost even more speed and grip and was 2s a lap down on expected race pace.
Then I seemed to catch a few cars and got a great line through Blanchimont and got past 2 in one move but then Nismo came flying through and somehow took the place back, I had nowhere to go and there was a small bit of contact but it was a great move. I think I then managed to overtake Perry on the next lap and pull a bit of a gap and then I just had to try and not make anymore mistakes and pick up some points.

This race hurt. Two seconds down in comparison to @Perry Grondstra when I was really close to his times last week...
I thought I trained enough for this race but apparently not. After watching the replay I learned that I was shifting down too much and should have kept a higher gear in nearly every turn.

Quali P19 and Race P12 only because of pitstops... I didn't even have damage and still couldn't manage to get my laptimes below 2:21. I did more practice for Spa than I did for Imola, really no idea why I was so much slower here :confused::confused:

Maybe the problem is that the front runners were much faster than expected, so maybe you were actually faster than at Imola :) That is how I take it :D
