I fricking hate this game and my life. First I was trying to pick the correct tyre for my box as it was a last minute call... But then I couldn't make the choice and got stuck in the intermediate selection. So made another stop and put mediums on. I got the fastest lap and said 'It's not that bad I still can have 2 points.' THEN, my stuff got discconnected so I crashed... I mean is there no mercy for me this season? Like... at all?

Thank you for listening. :cry:

What a race. Top start from @Jan Doring and he was gone. I think it was Lap 10 when he pitted, the funny thing was at this point that i didn't remember the pit window for the medium tyre. :D Also i didn't checked the MFD because the confusing thing was that i made a soft - medium strat, while Jan was going soft - hard. To pick the hard tires confused me so much that my whole plan on the strategy was kinda screwed. :D So i had to pit the next lap after he pitted. My fear was that these tires won't survive the race, luckily they did.

Such a challenging race, Jan had an amazing pace, it was tough to keep up with him while i was on mediums. Also got some nice fights. Congrats mate. :cool:

First off, thanks @VegaZ for the awesome race. Plan A was to make a Soft-Medium strat but I noticed my softs were degrading as hell so my plan was to do a soft-hard. I was suprised that Vega was managing those mediums prety well. I was hot lapping every lap trying to get at least a second off to break that DRS.

Congratz to @VegaZ, great fight.
Also congratz to @Dobby for his first podium of this season, you deserve it after being unlucky af this season.

Congrats to the podium winners!

My race highlights:
Probably my worst lap 1 ever, forgot to put my ers back to hotlap after formation lap. Started stressing out and suddenly the lights were out already. At the end of sector 1 I spun myself and ended up last... from P2. Managed to get back to the car ahead in free air. After the pit stop I spun again, exactly the same as I did in lap 1.
Luckily no damage both times so I just kept pushing and made it to P6 thanks to adam’s fetish of collecting corner cuts and exceeding track limits warnings.
