Alright guys, not much pre-race chatter in here lol, but good luck to you all tonight. Remember to be nice to turn 1 - it doesn't like to be cut :)

Heard some bad things about the race tonight from watchers of the live stream. Will wait until I see what happened, but I'll be expecting some stewards enquiries by the sounds of it. I hope it's just an exaggeration of a few isolated moments and that it was an otherwise good race.

Just watched back the livestream and firstly, that lap 1 incident at the hairpin definitely needs to be looked into, and secondly there was a bit too much track extending for my liking. But other than that, it looked like a mostly great race. Especially the @JACK 575 & @TRL Limitless battle for the win which was obviously given the most focus, but there seemed to be some really close battles in the midfield as well. Just makes me miss F1 2013 even more when I could actually battle with you guys :cry:

i enjoyed that race didnt have the pace in quaily was losing around 3 tenths to a couple of people in the 1st sector which is only 2 corners but oh well the race was fun was 12th going into the harpin on lap 1 and come out of it 6th cause the incident which happened then leebot had another massive lag spike got to 5th then overtook brociek to get 4th was getting head rush being that high lol had to pit on lap 8 cause my tires were destroyed and had to commit to a 3 stop which was the wrong strategy anyway ended up 6th with everyone's penalty congrts to jd for the win and great work by matty g aswell

Aww, poor Fisi.

I'm a bit disappointed with my result. I qualified 5th and after that big incident in the hairpin on lap 1, I managed to get up to 2nd place and suprisingly, I was the fastest with Jack. But when the first pit stops have started and we switched to prime tires, I wasn't so confident anymore and I started losing time to the top 2. My tire wear was horrible in every stint, 2 laps before my pit stop, I started to have problems with traction, especially in the last stint, which is the reason why I fell from 3rd to 8th. But some guys have got a penalty, so hopefully it will put me into 5th. As I said, I was disappointed, because I at least hoped that I could get a podium. Hungary, meeh.. I never really liked that track, but we'll see what my pace will be and hopefully it will be similar to my pace in Hockenheim. See you there!

Also.. MAGYAR NAGYDÍJ!

Haven't written a race report since Monaco so maybe it's time now :p

Enjoyed that race for the most part. Obviously bottled qualy a bit. Which put me down in 9th but that didn't really matter because of the big carnage at the harpin which got me all the way up to 4th.

On lap 4 I was just about to pass Brociek but instead got a huge lag spike which put me all the way down in 8th. Fortunately I managed to catch up quite quickly and before the first round of stops I was just behind Brociek again.
Pitted on lap 9 and during the second stint not too much happened. I passed Mazey for 4th while maintaining the gap to him and Jason behind and at the same time pulling in time to Martin ahead.
Pitted for my last and second stop on lap 22.

Jason who was behind me before the pit stops pitted a lap earlier so he overtook me by the undercut. Me and him then caught Martin in 3rd and I managed to overtake them both and pull away. Held the 3rd place until Brociek overtook me on the last lap, pretty okay with 4th though.

My penalty is getting removed aswell when I upload my highlights later today. Basically in turn 2 on lap 1 when Cryo got side prodded he touched me ever so slightly and I got a penalty for it #codemasterslogic

Great to see Matty live steaming aswell, see ya all next week in Hungary :)

No offense, but the impression I got when watching Cryo's video from turn 2 was that you divebombed him from far back and sent him into a sidepod spin without waiting. Way too aggressive move IMO at that stage of the race.

The hairpin incident will be brought up for the stewards later as that's obviously the kind of thing that looks bad for the league.

on lap 13 BROCIEK DICIDED TO GO FOR A YOLO MOVE SQUEEZING CRAYO OFF THE TRACK #BRAINLESS(y)(y)(y):wacky::banghead::banghead:
Also, let's stop with the childish insults shall we...

Pretty happy with 5th after such a crazy race, way too many accidents and 'Off track excursions' for my liking.
Anyway, quali was a joke, I see people doing 15.7 first sectors, felt like putting my controller down and retiring it's so obviously a dirty turn 1 but no just carry on it's fine :facepalm: I extended turn 1 a bit on my fastest lap but made sure I gained no time and 1st sector was a 16.1 which meant all the time I lost to pole was at one corner....

Race start was also a joke, massive pile up at the hairpin and I lost a couple of spots, could have been 3rd if I stayed to the inside. Highlight of my race was overtaking Franglish around the outside of the hairpin twice but I had a lag spike again and was squeezed off a couple of times. I thought I was in for a 7th place finish but 3 people came in near the end and I lost a place to Leo after that meaning I finished 5th. It was quite an enjoyable race with lots of cars close in the midfield throughout the race. Looking forward to Hungary as I've always been quick there, see you then.

15.7 clean is possible :unsure:
