@Jason007 I won’t be able to make it this weekend, because it’s thanksgiving and I won’t be in town. Really sad because I love Monza :(

A pity it didn't work for me. Do you know what I can do about it in the future? It worked fine at Spa.


Nice to hear it was a good race

Quali P2
Race P3

Qualifying was frustating, was changing between Wulf, @Kellvinnr3 and I, then I invalidated my final lap which was a shame as I really thought I could challenge for pole.

Race started sketchy into turn 1, think a few people out broke themselves into the corner and I had to go off track and pick up a corner cutting warning (first of a few *facepalm*). Managed to keep on the back of Wulf, and formed a small train with Kellvin in front. Then as he was dropping off I passed him to try and make my way onto the back of Kellvin which I managed to do towards the end of the stint when his tyres were going off and I could pass him before the first set of stops. Kellvin pitted a lap earlier for the undercut, when I tried to respond a lap later, Wulf followed me in so go held up slightly as our garages are right next to each other.

Spent the next stint then going back and forth with Kellvin which was good fun, but picked up some time penalties and just wasn't able to shake him, I could keep the gap on the straights but he was really able to close up in the braking zone. Then last lap, I got a terrible exit out of Paribolica and Kellvin passed me and stayed in front for the final lap with Wulf getting in front of me on penalties. Good racing, GG all, see you at Singapore! :D

Qualifying P8
Race P7

Qualifying was okay but my second fast lap wasn’t working for me.

Race was oblivious that turn one will be a mess. I don’t know how somebody can believe that going three wide into turn one of Monza will work.. So after a Renault and I think a Haas spun and one took me with them I was doing my first stint with an orange wing. Just didn’t care about pitting because it’s really not working to get a clean race. Second stint was okay and could’ve been even better for me if I wouldn’t have needed to change my wing in the pits.. Enjoyed it to chase Lewis and he did a really great job there. As I had a free pit stop I went for the fastest lap, had two purple sectors but I think the lap of bashful was glitched so I didn’t get it in the end. Hope some of you didn’t get damage in turn one and up from turn two of lap one I somehow enjoyed the race still.

This has happened before Bajer earlier in the season. Sometimes it has to do with the individual driver, sometimes the host. It's a networking thing. Apologies you couldn't race mate! We'll give it a go next week and see what happens. Perhaps try some different hosts. PSN/F1 2019 can be difficult to deal with. No one's fault in particular.

P1

Qualy was okay, did not have the best runs but thanks to @Da Eagle i was able to get a tow which was enough to get me the pole.

Race: Energy managing and tires were the key today. The first stint i hoped to get away from @Fernando Fio and @Okeke21 but this was not the case. Once @Okeke21 was done racing FIO he picked up the pace and started catching me. In lap 9 he did, my softs were done. I switched to the mediums and those were great. Once I got the lead back i was able to hold him a de distance with the ERS and Fuel settings. Unfortunately they were running out. By letting him past before the DRS zones i was able to harvest and get him back a few laps later. Of course i knew he had 9 sec penalty so this gave me some room for error. I did not know @Fernando Fio had no penalty’s, I was one warning away from another 3 sec which would have given him the win.

Great race!

Q: 5
R:4


The qualifying wasnt that good, some invalidated laps, even so, i dont think i could improve much more.

The race started was a litle dangerous on the first turn, and a few ghost cars, and connections issues, i pass the first turn without damage so everthing fine. I just go on my pace, trying to get ahead but i couldnt get past the P4, the Podium guys were to fast for me in that one.

@Jason007 my fastest lap was a glitch, so you should see who was the 2nd fastest and give him the point.

See you in next race, have to pratice for that one.

Q: P10
R: P8
In qualifying I didn't finish my third attempt because I have seen @MrRobinhx with the ''red X'' as if he was invisible, but when I was close to him he was not invisible, so I had to stop the lap.
At the end of first lap I was sure that was impossibile finishing the race in top 10 because I had to change the front wing, and I was in P14. So I decided to use Hard tyres trying to keep them for all the race. I have overtaken @Da Eagle and the two McLaren while they were in pit lane. Last laps were horrible because while I was trying to keep my 3/4 seconds to @xGATECRASHERx the tyres were gone.
P8 is not a great result but I'm satisfied to finish my home race in Monza in top 10. Now Singapore ;) .
