I will make it! Just finished an hour long practice session for tonight with the wheel and my shoulder seems good enough.
Thanks it was hard room to control with all the issues last nightGreat job hosting @CHRSMELLYANAN , that was not an easy one to manage
In the feature race I had a HUGE moment coming out of T1 at lap 18, a car was sliding along the fence in the grass on the right shoulder, then suddenly they turned left for no reason and cut perpendicularly across the track. Brown code moment there, somehow I barely scraped his front and had 4% damage, otherwise a direct hit would have been terminal for both of us.
I don't know who it was (black car, an Audi perhaps) but that was a reckless rejoin and the sort to give an immediate disqualification. No need to take it further as I don't think I've lost a position, but guys be careful, priority when you crash is to prevent the car from crossing back on the track by being too eager to join quickly, especially with damaged suspension.
Without the small aero damage I could've maybe taken the fight to @Fot79 for 4th, but with my 10s penalty for pitlane speeding I was going to be 5th anyway. It was fun driving hard to gain 10s on the guys behind as everyone seemed to have damage of some sort. Fun race.
HI @OasisFan95.Q 9th
I got an okay lap together, I feel like I had another second there but it was okay, left me good chances for the rest of the session.
Boring race, but welcome after last round disaster, basically stayed out of trouble on the first corner and after I had 15 damage so wasn't running very smooth but good enough to mantain, except for @BMTM_Shifter who flyed past me like I was in another car category.
This race was crazy for me, after avoiding trouble and having good pace I found myself in a comfortable 4th position, but then I had a mistake following a lapped car and found myself with 25 damage and my direction fucked, was only 6/7 laps till the end so I decided to risk it, and what a decision.
3 cars passed me in the next laps but then I started controlling the car better, what was 12 seconds of pace became 4/5 seconds of pace and then I realized one of the guys I had in front also seemed to have problems, after seeing a bit of an opportunity in the big braking points I went for it in the 2nd to last corner, cant make it but I get traction earlier and we get side by side on the last corner both seeminly having trouble to keep the car straight but not one giving quarter, at the end its @Toudainl who gives in and I get 6th.
Finally a nice picture of the Ferrari team togheter @Fot79

My goal was to stay out of trouble in the 2nd race after a terrible sprint race. At the end when you were driving next to me I was pushed a bit onto the grass and was strugling with the car so didn't want to take any risks. I was very happy with the result and looking forward to the next race.
Very difficult race, I had a good race pace maybe I could aim for the podium but unfortunately I made a couple of mistakes .
This track is unforgiving. Great victory @BMTM_Shifter .
@JRF_Hgrade_B_66 what bad luck for the second race. You had a good race pace. Yuo win the next one
@Luche109 if it is not a problem I would hear the stewards. During race 1 you hit me, getting me out and damaging my rear wing.
I lost a couple of positions and you didn't wait to give me back the position.
