I’m in the 20’s for qualy. Hopefully can get into high 19’s tomorrow. But it’s more about race pace, and being consistent with speed over the course of a stint or race distance.

Is it just me o was qualifying way too slow?? I mean, a lot of people didnt even set a lap (yes I know corner cutting sucks around here, but still). I expected everyone to be between 1,20-1,21 (I wasnt even there btw hahaha)

Race report
Qualifying: P13 It didnt went very good at all. I invalidated all my first tries with new tyres, so I set a 21,4 in worn tyres. It was a really bad time since I was getting 20,3-20,6 on practice. At least I was able to start on supersofts in the race.
Race: P11 Start was really good, i jumped 3 or 4 cars but later made a small mistake and lost 1 or 2 places. I was following a small train in P10 when all the guys in front got bunched up and I didnt see that coming so I got half yellow front wing. It was only lap 4 so I decided to stay out until lap 8 to make the 1 stop viable, while slowing down everyone behind as much as I could. On lap 8, just before pitting I lost the whole frontwing in an incident with axeri (no one's fault). The following thing screwed my race completely. Jeff told me to pit for softs, I accepted, but the game glitched ( I checked the video and it said softs ) or something and the pit crew put me on ultrasofts, completely destroying my race strategy. In the end I managed to finish P9 (I was last after pitting the second time) but with 6 time penalties I got P11.
Overall, it was a ton of fun despite all the incidents and bad luck, I had a great time battling with other people. The field looks to be pretty even and with a way easier circuit like bahrein coming next I expect nothing but a great race there. Congratulations to everyone for making this possible and especially to the top 3 finishers. Can't wait for next Sunday!

So. I qualified P6. Could've been better, im capable of much more than that. Race was fun! outsmarted a Renault and a McLaren and overtook them, then I was closing on @SlimboDude in the first stint. After the pit stops I was catching and made a solid move around the outside for he lead... man my heart stopped there xD. Good race and great battles.. onto the next one.
