My race started oké, but I made a PSI-mistake and they overheated in the later phases of the race and lost grip real quick. I was in a state where I hadn't been off the racing line for about 8 laps, then I finally had some competition with erkka (I think?)
and I went off the racing line to overtake on the inside and suddenly noticed just how bad of a state my tyres were in and hit him and took him out of the race. I was fine, sad that it happened. First crash I was the cause of in my four seasons here and I want to apologize for it.
In the end I ended 13, which shouldn't have 14th so I'm happy with that position.
Ok fisi, i understand that point. But closing the "steward poll" after the stewards decision without having chance to say anything more is in my opinion not the right way.If people disagree, that's completely fine, but this particular situation was pretty clear-cut from how we see it. However if anyone feels the need to discuss this further, I'd be happy to do so in private.
In fairness both parties are given the opportunity to express their perspective before we act. Why didn't you say what you needed to say when you raised the enquiry initially?Ok fisi, i understand that point.

Maybe i am a bit pissed cause of the decision from S4R1, because i could have said some more to this thread after Kerrys decision to change a mind. But i only had one chance to get me noticed.
Please keep in mind, every decision could be used as discussion for further ones. Don't judge the same kinda incident different in further proclamations.
because i thought the replay would say the rest.I echo Fisi's thoughts entirely.

There was no further input needed. Fredrik gave his view, you gave your view. We read both views, looked at the replay footage from several angles and came to the conclusion we felt was reasonable based on what we saw.In regard to the stewards,my input was what I replied to Frederick in the original protest,there was no futher input to the stewards as none was asked for.
I know you have been at both ends of various incidents in the past. Nobody have said you have done anything intentionally. But when an incident is brought up in front of the stewards, we have to look into it and come to a conclusion on who - if any - we think was at fault for the collision happening. And whatever outcome is decided, one party will always end up disappointed - that's just how it is I'm afraid. Even if you disagree with the outcome in this case (which is fine), I hope you can understand that.I have also been hit ,taken out et-al by others with not a word from them,but choose not to protest as I know they where not intentional,it's racing and people make mistakes.
So let me understand this correctly. After 33 great races in the league, you are pulling out entirely because of one stewards decision going against you? Seems like quite the over-reaction if that's the only reason, in which case I hope you reconsider.Car *45 is withdrawn from the series.
