Unfortunately gentlemen, I will not be attending this race. I'm out and about with the family and won't make it back home in time for the race. Qualy and race results screens are much appreciated! Good luck to all tonight!

Q:1
Race:1

Managed to get pole positon and win the race.

I had a pretty good lap one and I was leading with 2 seconds after the first lap, however from lap 4 onwards on the soft tyre I struggled and I pitted on lap nine for Medium tyres I didn't want to run 26 laps on the hards, that would have been a strech. I then managed to overtake some cars on track who was driving on worn tyres.

Then I pitted for the second time, knowing that Kelvinn and Okekes tyres would be very very worn at the end, I managed to overtake both drivers, despite I was 12 seconds behind Okeke after my second stop.

I think the onestopper with Medium to Hard was the way to go. But when I pitted I was leading with 6 seconds or something like that, and I knew that Kelvinn and Okeke had lost time to the guys who were running on the soft tyre on the first stint, which enabled me to be relatively close to both guys after my second stop, especially Kelvinn. Okeke was 12 seconds ahead but his tyres were pretty worn compared to mine.




Looking forward to the next race in the states, should be a cracker with loads of penalties haha ;).

Q:2nd
R:4th

Delighted with my Qualifying to get first front row in AOR!

Had pretty good getaway at start, but lost part of front wing on 2nd corner. No ones fault, just a bit unlucky. (3 into one dont go!)

Decided against pitting for new wing straight away and wait for scheduled pitstop as damage was minor. I then switched to mediums to have softs again for final stint and managed to make my way up to 4th setting fastest lap on route!

Delighted with my AOR career best finish!
Had great battle with @Kellvinnr3, great clean and fair racing. And Congrats on podium!

Congratulations to @Bajer7928 on race win and to @Okeke21 on 2nd!

Onto USA!!

Q: P6
R: P2

Quali was ok, considering most people were qualifying on the softs, the lap put me in a decent position for the race.

Race started tricky - @Bajer7928 started upfront and gapped 2nd place quite quicky, and when trying to get in front of P2-P5, it was difficult as we were stuck in a DRS train going down the straight. I managed to overtake @L3W1_UK and @ColinRMason on lap 4 and 6 respectively, then once WULF1_FIOF1 pitted at the end of lap 6, I went to chase derrrick850 for 2nd and managed to get onto the back of him on lap 8 and overtake him on lap 9 into turn 1. Bajer then pitted on the end of that lap and with that clear air I tried to just get some consistent laps in before pitting at the end of 15 with @Kellvinnr3 following me in on the same lap. However when we came back out, we were behind WULF and derrrick again, who had pitted onto softs, which meant losing a bit more time to Bajer. I managed to overtake derrrick into turn 4 and with WULF pitting I went to chase Bajer again before his next stop. But once he stopped, he only came out around 10 seconds behind me, although behind Kellvin and Colin. I knew I had penalties which would of made the win difficult, but wanted to at least win on track, but onto lap 34, Bajer caught up and overtook me. With DRS I managed to stick with him till the end and made one attempt at overtaking into turn 4, but the tyre delta was too large.

GG all and on the win @Bajer7928 and 3rd @Kellvinnr3, see you all next week :)

I didn’t practice much this week due to work and so I was really happy with my qualifying on mediums.

For the race in lap one turn one was alright, in turn two I see @MrRobinhx a little late and touch him. He didn’t get affected by that and I was able to control my car. Into turn four a Renault spins in front of me and stands sidewise on the track so that I can’t go anywhere and kind of T-bone him.. race over in lap one..

In my video there isn't the race start because I had a problem with the steering wheel so I had to set it.
