Should be one of my weakest tracks but the early pace feels quite nice tbf.
We should probably sort out who’s hosting since (Sorry I forgot whoever it was again) someone can’t connect to me. Assuming @nezehran will now be the main host and I’ll be backup? Unless things change with that driver that is

I'll take a look at everyones connections and check who would be the best but so far @nezehran is the best option because we know that @frandythomsen can connect to him for sure. Ofc we are still hoping that Frandy gets his NAT type changed (or whatever caused the problem).

Pretty excited for this race. Was completely lost in set up and pace earlier today and this week but I did some changes and things are looking better. Hopefully can bring home a good result. Tbh not really looking for a lot of battles this Sunday, just kind of want to drive my own race and see what happens....

Yes, fine I accept it.
The way the car is tilted to the right seems way more than it felt in the race, but then again, I can't proof what I'm saying so going by evidence granted, i take the responsibility.
Any idea what pentalty I have to expect ?

No idea, they might give you penalty like 5 seconds or they might do racing incident. Something should happen imo since it did affect my race, but we’ll see.

Guessing a 5s time penalty and a couple of penalty points so nothing massive

Race report:
Qualifying: P8 I only did 2 attempts on ss and the only valid one wasnt very special. I clearly left 2 or 3 easy tenths
Race: P3 I will leave the highlights below. Overall it was a pretty entertaining race. In my opinion there were two critical moments where I may have lost the race win. Obviously, front wing damage was very harmful, but the pit crew not repairing it was what annoyed me the most. Apart from that, after vikstar rejoined in front of me with softs, I thought he would pull away but he didnt, and then I took way too long to past him, 6 laps os more ( because I wanted to be sure he wouldnt be able to reovetake me in the next drs zone ) In the end I just lost the race by 6 tenths so who knows what could have happened. Really happy with my first podium by the way!
Anyways, congratulations to the winner Jompa and 2nd place Jordy! It seems like the field is pretty even and right now I dont see a clear group of title contenders so thats pretty cool (Yes, I know it is just 2 races...) See you in China next week!

Managed to put my qualifying together well to grab pole and that really set me up for the race. Jordy had a bit better pace in the race and got past easily on the straight with DRS around lap 4, but other than that I had clean air for pretty much the entire race. Took the supers to lap 8 and pitted for the mediums to run til the end, but unfortunately picked up a 3-sec time penalty which put me under a bit of pressure from behind with Pedro being around 2 seconds back and Jordy catching up after his second stop. Luckily for me both pedro and jordy lost just enough time battling for me to get the gap up to 3.2 seconds, taking it by 2 tenths.

Pretty sure I didn't make a single overtake in the race so not very action-y in that sense, but really happy to get the win and that I managed to get pretty close to what I could expect both in qualy & race-pace, only blights being a bit too big a drop-off on the end of the first stint and a couple slow laps while getting to grips with the mediums after the pit. Pretty important too with such a tight field, since there was like 4 tenths between pole and P10. Looking forward to the next one!
