F1 Senna Equivalent
- Oct 24, 2014
That was frustrating but not surprising. Turn 1 was a mess by myself. Wanted to be aggressive as even though it was a 2 hour race, there wasn't any chance of overtaking unless the person in front made a catastrophic mistake. Knowing that I tried to go down the inside but couldn't find my braking point. Somehow on my screen I didn't touch anyone, but it probably caused a mess. From there the first stint was just picking up the pieces of people going off and trying to settle into a decent pace. I went with the soft tyres so I was trying to be gentle. Had @Wimstradamus in front who I seemed even on pace with at the beginning and @jam_my21 behind who was miles quicker, but the track did him no favours. He got close once down the main straight and lifted out and that turned out to be a mistake as he got stuck for 20 laps. First pitstop I changed everything and had new tyres with higher pressure anticipating the track temps going up. Got jumped by Jam_my who went for a monster undercut and I nearly got the overcut on Wim. From then on the tyres felt like **** as the grip wasn't there with the new set and it was just ridiculously hot in my house (was 35 degrees Celsius outside with a broken A/C unit). After a couple mistakes saw me lose another position I binned it pretty good into the wall. At that point I had major suspension damage and was looking at being 3 laps down on @Jarryd Vermeulen once I got back to the pits and fixed the car. Didn't feel like it was worth driving at that point and just wanted to go try and cool down as well.
