HELP! I've just came back tonight and only got 5 mins of practice in and I can't practice tomorrow :( I can only manage 1:26.825 and It looks like I'll come stone, dead last.
While your lapping me on lap 3 I shall be writing a novel about bio-viruses. If anyone's interested lap me at least 20 times(all of you) which will be easy for you all. I will be on page 677 at least by the last lap. Thankyou for your patience reading this USEFUL post

I really really really hope that nobody misses their braking point at T1 on lap 1.

i think if i just take the grass and then the escape road i should be okay at T1, might get a corner cut warning but i wont be involved in anything

You almost sound like you expect to miss your braking point.

i am not very confident on the breaks around here, especially into T1. i think im going to resort to large breaks just to get some extra stopping power cause i always seem to carry too much speed into the corner. its the only one on the game i struggle with getting stopped for, but its an absolute nightmare for me. i expect to qualify near the back being in the 25's, so i should be able to break early. i might sit out quali if i have too, really worried about screwing up T1 for everyone.

Unless I can find time today I will be going into this one with no practice since my last race here 3/4weeks ago, from what i can see my team mate is on the pace so it should be interesting....

I may be joining you at the back of the grid today. I have an incredible hangover and couldn't do better than a 25.4 in TT

All this talk of how fast the Ferrari is, is a bit depressing as I can only get a 1.24.7 with mine!
They do better with softer springs.

managed to do a pb of 25 flat with a mistake in the first sector, so qualifying is looking somewhat promising now

Back into the 24's.
im hoping to get into the 24's. i think i can do it if i can nail S1. managed to do a 28.4 in the last practice session which makes up for my abysmal pace around the rest of the lap most of the time.

well that was interesting

Qualifying: 2nd on a 1:24.397
no idea where the hell that came from as i finally put a lap together around here. the only thing that can sum up that session for me is this:
Race: 5th with 10 second penalty, 4th across the line

got a **** poor start and @robnoxious9000 got ahead of me pretty quickly on the first lap i think. first stint was solid and i held my own at the front of the pack surprisingly. coming out of the pits around lap 12 i found myself stuck behind @pete day for a few laps. tried to overtake around the outside and missed the 2nd part of the chicane and i barely tapped his car and got a penalty, i'll be appealing that cause i dont think the contact did anything other than slow us both down 2 tenths in the 1st sector and he was still infront. after the pit stops worked themselves out i was 3rd about 9 seconds behind Rob and started to close quickly. would have caught him if i didnt keep making mistakes out of the chicanes. eventually @neil rutter caught me and overtook me knocking me down to 4th. next lap @chris130256 caught me and we went side by side into the 1st chicane. on the exit i got a better run but had a ridiculous amount of wheel spin as soon as i put it into rich and got flung into him knocking us both into the wall, so im expecting a penalty out of that. similar situation to last week with neil which is a **** off, never figured i'd get that much wheel spin. that ended up allowing Sultan to get within 10 seconds of me and knock me off my best finish, but i should have crossed the line in 5th anyway behind Chris. struggled with the chicanes a lot and forced myself to wait to get on the power a lot to negate any advantage i'd gain which prevented me from catching the people ahead as id rather not catch them by corner cutting. all in all a solid race for me. really sorry about the accident Chris, you got screwed cause i put the power down to early

i didnt pass you at turn 4, there's no way i could have because i was breaking so early to avoid hitting you off there. i passed you on the exit of turn 10. i remember that clear as day cause i shut DRS half way down the back straight and put into lean cause i didnt think i'd get by there so i was going to wait for the main straight. next thing i realized it looked like you got a horrendous run out of Ascari so i took the opportunity. i dont have video of the crash, but i know i sat behind you for another half of the lap. i spent 3 laps behind you despite the fact that we werent fighting for position

It's always nice to win, but it wasn't the most enjoyable race... I liked some other races more like Canada, Germany & Spa.

Btw I can't make next week's race (I'll not be able to put it on the new race topic so I hope you remember) since I'm going on a skitrip... It's sad because I really like Singapore but who can be sad when he goes skiiing?? Or even more Apres SKi?! hehe... See you guys the week after in Japan!
