Formula 4 1st Driver
- Jan 19, 2014
Yeh I overshot the chicane and locked upThat was a very weird race. Bottled qualy quite badly and was only 8th on the grid. The race started off pretty calm just stayed behind Jambo for the first 10 laps. Then on lap 11 I was I bit behind Jambo and when I came out of the casino it was just a big pile of cars crashing down the hill, Everyone where ghosted so I kept the throttle down and though I could get past but Minty stopped ghosting and I hit the back of him loosing my front wing as Ellis had aswell. Later on that lap I got my penalty, basically when me and Ellis got into the nouvelle chicane he ran a bit wide and I got past him, and exacly the same time as I passed him the safety car sign came up giving me a penalty for illegal overtake, hope it can get removed (video below).
For the rest of that stint I just tried to keep the rythm and follow the train, actually managed to gain 2 places by overtaking on track that stint when Minty and Jason made some mistakes, which was nice. Then pitted on lap 23 I coming out in what was a pretty comfortable third. But I didn't make it easy for myself as I lost my endplate giving me horrendous understeer which ended in me driving really badly, Minty got past me and almost Jason aswell. Then I was very lucky when Minty and Franglish crashed in fornt of me gifting me 2nd. The Red Bull pair was chasing close after me for the rest of the race but I managed to hold off. So good points for me and in the constructors aswell! See you guys after the brake!
Here's my penalty. I recorded it via my iphone because I have no sony vegas atm and then I have to use Youtube editor which forces my to firstly upload the whole video and then edit and after that the processing takes hours. I hope it can get removed. Would be nice if @FisiFan91 take a look at it, don't know if I have to make a stewards enquiry for it.
