I will be unable to attend tonight as I feel my internet isn't up to scratch for League racing at this moment in time, apologies. I will be sure to notify you @Ycoms if it seems better by race time

One of the most disappointing performances of the Season. It's not that I had one big off and then it was all over, I made too many things that got me annoyed, got warnings and warning on the first few laps, I think 6 seconds after 7 laps already. I half spun on L6 which put me down from P4, then was stuck behind @Jack while getting more and more warnings and then completely misjudging the exit of 130R, I can count my lucky stars that he didn't crash into wall from that. Anyway after that limping with a broken endplate towards the end of the stint. The last stint was okay'ish, but the damage was already done, so P9 it is then.

That's my third 2nd place finish here in Suzuka ever since I've joined AOR, destined to not win here lol.

Really disappointed to cross the line first but to then have it snatched away from me via a 3 second penalty. Honestly felt very comfortable around here but suffered frame rate issues which messed up my turn in points in certain occasions in degner 1 and the last chicane. Its the same for everyone I guess so I cannot moan too much.

Delighted that my qualifying form is going well, 2nd pole in a row. The lap wasn't electric (0.2 off PB) but solid all three sectors and 100% clean.

Race was fun and intense, the first two stints were a pain with the frame issues with seiyariu having a slight pace advantage on mediums. Pitted for hards with two great passes on Ycoms and Jason, appreciate the space and once again racing cleanly, enjoy racing others with confidence. I passed seiyariu with the drs and maintained a 0.9 gap for 8 laps every sector it seemed, ecstatic with the pace on the hards and pleased to not choke it regardless of the result from the penalty.

Congrats to Seiyariu on the win, well done to Finn for a podium. The championship is within touching distance, hope you wrap it up at COTA. GG lads, see you next week

Alright, let's do this:

Qualifying P9: First lap on Mediums was almost flawless, (for my standard at least) managed a 33.9 which is only a tenth off from my PB on Mediums. The following attempt on the Softs was pretty good, I was even purple on @HCR Cupid provision pole lap time, but I bottled the chicane where I lost something like 3 tenths or even more, did 33.3 which is half a second off my PB. Last run was pretty meh, didn't improve my previous PB.

Race P8: Felt my race pace was pretty good tbf so I was looking for a good result looking at my lap times in the practice sessions I had done before. Start wasn't particularly great, lost 3 positions and got down to P12. Eventually, I found my way up to P9, but I got stuck behind @Finch because his straight line speed was outrageous. Only had an opportunity to overtake him in the main straight, I don't know how, but he managed to keep the outside line for T1 and stay ahead. Then had a short battle with @I Jason97F1 I where he overtook me pretty easily considering he had fresher tyres than me. Followed him for a couple of laps when, all in a sudden, after asking my Kinect to record, it brought me to the Dashboard and I found myself in the grass GG. Nothing really significant happened after my second pit. I was in P9 just behind @Ycoms and was catching him, but due to the 100M marker board missing at T1, I went massively wide and lost something like 4 seconds. Luckily for me, he had some times penalty so I got promoted to P8.
A bit gutted, considering this was probably my favourite track of the calendar and my race pace seemed fine. Could have gone better without the issue I had with the Kinect (happened at Silverstone as well) but I take what I get.
Next track, Austin. Really looking forward to it. :)
