Another Track I don't really like. I struggeled in TT and it will probably not be very different now. But probably it is a good track for the Audi. Anybody done some testing in these conditions?

I'm doing 1:23.0s and can easily get into the 1:22s with the Ferrari. With that i can expect pole to be a 1:19 :)

Probably not. I assume a low 21 to be Pole. But this may not even matter because no one showed real consistency trough the season.
I had no time to practice yet but I hope I can adjust to the Fanatec pedals very quick tonight. Otherwise I will be nowhere to be seen...

Pre-race briefing:

@Res F1 Italian had connection issues again last week, he thinks it is @seppel165 fault because he has no issues with other hosts. Shall we change it for tonights race or stick with seppel as the host?
@George and @B1rd 1s D4 W0rd are your connections okay? You keep quitting/disconnecting. Please don't do that otherwise I will have to take you to the stewards if you don't have good reasons for doing so. There are rules against rage-quitting and you guys accepted them.

That's all for today.

I'm fine with giving up the host duty. If there is anybody else with a good connection.
Did anybody else, other than RES, had connection issues?

Q: P10
R: P7

I knew it would be a hard race before, but that hard...

I do have to train hard, just to get some consistency into the braking with the Fanatec Loadcell Brake. It it a real change from the old Thrustmaster T3PA Brake.
Nevertheless the race was very eventless, even though I avoided 4 spinning cars in 1 corner somewhere around lap 3 and got from P9 (Chiraq spinning before) to P5 in one corner. Very funny situation. I damaged my radiator in the middle of the race by spinning out of the access of corks crew and had a 2 minute repair stop after which my race was pretty much over. P7 after that is all I could have asked for.
