I wish it wasn't Spa and Monza that I have to miss, definitely two of my better tracks.

Ok race for me. I got front wing damage twice but still finished in 6th (to be fair this was mostly due to other people crashing / not showing up).

Meh my race was ok. Avoided a couple crashes and considering I was way off the pace in the dry I'm happy with 4th :D

Well, that was fun! Second win in my "AOR career", first one in the wets (never thought that would happen). Ran a wet setup as everyone else except @EL_Sonny who clearly qualified with a dry setup. I thought he would have struggled in the wets with that setup, especially when it showed there would be stormy weather during the race (never saw that before), but he managed through and held first place until lap 16. He pitted 2 laps before me and @Smash and I thought he put back new wet tyres, but he made the switch to inters before us. I thought he would have struggled more with the still very wet track, but he was still in front of me after I pitted for inters 2 laps later. In the end, my wet setup prevailed on inters, made the move down the Kemmel straight and build a 3sec gap. But near the end of the race, as the track got dryer, his dry setup came alive and he was gaining fast on me. 1-2 laps more and he would have passed me.

That win puts me back in contention for a podium finish for the championship and opened the gap behind me, +100 points and top 6 in the championship at this point in the season is better than what I anticipated.

P.S.: Sad that @CameronB exploded his car in Eau Rouge on the first lap, would have had a mighty battle throughout the race!
