Pre-race briefing:

@Suomy and @iBreMbo will be missing tonight, so we will have only 10 drivers on the grid.
This will make qualifying a bit easier since the cars will be spread out a bit more than usually.

The rain in this game is not static, it's dynamic. This means each session can be different and the pace can look completely different from one lobby to another.

We won't change anything to the qualifying procedure. Get out of the pits as early as you can and try to get a lap in.

Please be aware of your surroundings at each time, it can be really dangerous with the puddles as well.

Track limits are not an issue around this track.

Q: P3
R: P2

This is probably not so long as last week because it was a very eventless race.
Quali was basically a one shot quali as the conditions went worse very quick. Keeping my quali weekness in mind P3 was actually very OK.
Race is a thing of 2 sentences. @Chiraq overtook @Murphy going into druids and I followed him trough just before stirlings in the first lap as murphy made a little mistake.
From there on it was a formation flight from AlbEifelmotorsport at the front of the pack as we ran away from the guys behind. Neither of us did a major mistake so the gap was between 2 - 4 seconds the whole race.
Very dominant performance from the both of us, regardless @iBreMbo and @Suomy weren't racing.

@Res F1 Italian did you disconnect or did you leave the race on purpose?

Q2 R1
Went into quali with full confidence. Got the result I wanted, front row but the outside line. Without the silly mistake in the penultimate corner it would have been the pole, but try to get a clean lap together under that pressure lol.
Here my quali lap.

In the race I had a good start despite having the outside line I got a good run down paddock hill and overtook @Murphy with a bit of contact, it was minor he ran a bit wide and I just slid into the gap that opened up. From there on the target for me was to set the pace at the front, try to create a gap and from there not to make any mistakes.
Fulfilled the task, nearly lost the car in the 38th lap though (I think), my heart stopped for some seconds but it was all good.

Happy to win in these difficult conditions, this race demanded every bit from me. My last win is 2 seasons away so really delighted to be on the top step of the podium again.
Feels nice to have my team-mate @seppel165 standing beside me, he tried to keep my back clean but that was not really needed. Maximum points for Alb-Eifel Motorsport and P2 in the driver and team standings.

Laguna won't be easy at all. See you there
