Well apparently my reason to leave wasn't valid. But my internet is not working particularly well and at a track with such close walls, I think it would be better if I didn't race. Even if I did I would probably kill someone with lag or disconnect. So good luck everyone and please drop me to a reserve cheers.

I derped hard at the start. Thought the first corner was further away than it actually is, and missed my braking point by miles, sorry to the lads I collected :(

Had a damaged wing from that, and ended up out of the race after a slight brush with the wall through the fast S bend.

Onwards to next week

Can't believe that. Doing really well and then controller turns off for a split second and my car turns into the wall. Had absolutely no look on this game

Shame I didn't get an invite to the race. As a reserve, I would have thought there was a space for me today. I was hoping the host was informed about me as a reserve. Anyway, hope everyone had a good race!

Yeah it's a shame. Hope I can race next week. Did quite a lot of effort into practice just in case I had a chance of racing.

YES! First ever league race win! GG's to @Dast for making a 1-3 podium for Haas. Had a good battle with @Suphrize Meh but felt like I had better tyre wear over all. Pitted lap 8 for the undercut on 2 drivers and jumped them after they pitted. When the second VSC came out it was just before my pit window so I decided to pit for softs instead of super soft which gave me an huge advantage when @AOR BiGGzY96 that was doing a 1-stop made a mistake at the castle section. Overtook 3 cars I think pretty comfortably, cleanly and managed to win!
