This is what happened at the hair pin is anyone who didn’t see it wanted to know and if you watch the video it’s not your headphones I had no engine sound the entire race and couldn’t shift properly

Don't worry @GILES95 I've calmed down now it wasn't your fault really that the safety car came out after your crash, just as soon as I did my race went into a meltdown. Dived in for the ultras but whilst I was trying to sort it on the MFD I sped into the pitlane and got a 5 second penalty, somehow ended up on mediums again so may as well have stayed out, then lost the back end coming out the final turn on the restart, tiny touch on the wall ended the whole race. Never mind I suppose. I had a fairly quiet race until then, just a couple seconds behind the leaders but enough ahead of others to be comfortable, so can't comment on the standard of racing but it didn't look good with 9 retirements

This is what peak league racing looks like.

That safety car at the end almost cost me the win there, avoided the carnage and got my first win this season somehow, gg to those that I battled with & great recovery @Ferrari3
Biggest incident we've had all season. So many drivers involved in that one

My race start to finish. From my perspective, it was clear that @Ferrari3 tapped the rear of @miniminiman09 coming out of t1, causing him to lose control and go into the barrier, losing a wheel. In the process, i had nowhere to go but into the toro rosso, which primarily gave me wing damage however I had lost control and was sent into the wall and also out of the race. First DNF of the season lowest finishing position was fifth prior to the race. Gg Sims on the W.

I made it a few metres further than @Tom123FTW but ultimately my race ended there too. There was nowhere to go and even standing on the brake pedal wasn't enough. I still feel pretty hard done by the slight wall contact being enough to break the suspension.

Would have to see @Ferrari3's view ofc but from your POV it looks like he did nothing wrong there, looks like miniman just lost control a little bit before they even touched, you can see the direction of his car before the contact

Yeh I had semi lost control but the contact with the Ferrari kinda made me completely lose control and put it into the wall.

I got extremely lucky with that T1 incident I saw it happening very early and slammed on the brakes and weaved my way round it all. Unfortunately I think someone hit my rear and wasn't as lucky as me and retired as a result of it. My POV of it all. Start of race is at 29:25
