P2 quite snazzy would like to say that 3 brits on the podium is even better, unlucky to @Cathal amazing race from you man totally deserved a win but unlucky with the crash. Also would like to thank @PriceyNumber1 for the grid penalty (like actually thank you) if I hadn't of been given it I would've been involved in the T1 incident.
But I’m not Britain

I hate Silverstone and that race didn't help at all.

Knew I wouldn't be anywhere near with softs so opted to start on mediums - qualified 10th.

Got an electric start, absolutely WHIZZING past loads of noobs but unfortunately @Bernie spins out in front of me and I have no where to go and I hit him and lose half of my front wing on the right hand side (which is certainly not good for all these right handers at Silverstone).

So I'm chilling in 4th and let my team mate through as he's much faster than me. It is quite a struggle to go through this fast corners with a yellow (maybe orange) half a wing and I'm losing lots of time to the front group but luckily I have about a 5 second cushion to Bernie behind.

When all the soft runners pit I'm out in front on my own for a few laps, all is bliss, got a nice 11-14 second gap. And lap 15 just before I get to the pit entry BOOM A VIRTUAL SAFETY CAR. THIS IS GREAT NEWS. Because I had to change my front wing (which is about an extra 6 seconds) I knew this would benefit me loads. I come out about 2 car lengths behind Bernie as the VSC ends and overtake him swiftly.

But I had to do some proper intense and dirty fuel saving because stupid me thought it would be good to underfuel the car at the beginning of the race and that hurt me at the end. And my absoutely shocking pace could be proved by DD running infront of me on 15 lap hards making a gap and Bernie on mediums absolutely hounding my arse up until the end.

Luckliy about lap 24 he spun a bit and made a 4 seconds cushion (as I had a time penalty) but because I'm a big failure he managed to get the gap down to 2 seconds and nab me for 5th.

Moral of the story? Blame Bernie. If I didn't have a broken wing I reckon I could have got a podium that race.
hahaha. Really annoyed me. Could have got a podium too but just couldn't pass you.

I'm 99% sure he's American, cause he has a US flag and red connection to me in the lobby :p
how bad is my connection, your guys connections seems to be pretty good but i haven't had a lot of 1 v1 action but yeah seems pretty good for me and i just learn to ignore the red bars as i see them in no matter what lobby i'm in

Here is my start, although I lost some of the wing I did make up a lot of positions.
