Hip hip hooray, first-ever podium in EU league, strat worked out perfectly I think, assumed there would be early safety car and SC in middle of the race as well, after **** quali forgetting to switch to new softs (not that it made a difference) started P14 i think, pit on mediums lap 10 ignoring suggestion from Jeff, then mediums to the end, def didn't' have the pace to fight for a win, but happy to maintain P3 and no penalties.

Results and Race Director included


Edit1: SHOooot foorgot :p Also big GG to RGM for the win and of course teammate @Jasko5 , quality P3/4.

That was a crazy race, two safety cars and two broken front wings. Second was behind the second safety car when the queue slowed right down at T1. SO FUSTRATING. From a POLE to P13. Not the best day at the office!!!! :( (Can't get any footage as my stream vods have been very dodgey and won't load, but pretty sure everything was completely unintentional ! )

Happy to have the worst track of the season finished! I can't help but make major mistakes almost every lap in various corners here. Considering that, I was actually fine with how quali went, P11 gave me a chance to go M --> S.

Got a great start and was able to pass a few guys right away. The rest of first stint was just to try and stay close to the guys on soft, unfortunately I was spooked twice at Raidillon by guys losing control, losing me positions I had gained before. Then, first SC helped with being able to reach the end of the stint without issues.

However, just as I was getting close to pit window, the second SC came out... with me and my teammate being 1-2. He pitted and I stayed out myself, stupidly thinking it'd be faster than waiting 2 seconds inside the pit. As a result, I was P18 (last place!) after pitting the next lap. That ruined any chances for a good result.

I was able to cruise pretty well on the softs, passing a few people & others needing to pit again. Eventually ending in P7.

@leenvollaard you ruined my race completely mate, got disqualified because of you.

Sorry @Diallo for touching your rear tires on the first lap.

I was P4 on qualifying but i coudent get into the pits and then the game decided to disqualify my session, so I started on P19.
Really tried to go to the left hand side. Had no choice, because of a drive through penalty. sorry mate

New controller so i'm glad i was still some fights. Bad start, but safety car helped me. After restart i had accident with @Karzolia . At first i thought that he closed me door but that was all my fault. Second SC was coused by me and maclaren.
after second restart i fought with @Bobino12 and finally he pushed me out of the track and kill me dream about points in this grand prix.

@Bobino12 With all the respect in the world I have a question for you. Do you have mirrors on your car?On lap 10 in turn 19 you forced me off the track completely.

A good race for me.

Qualifying was very close.
Had a pretty decent start, but an ambitious divebomb from some guy from behind resulted in a damaged wing for me, which in turn caused tons of understeer.
The SC was a sigh of relief to some degree. But that meant i had to take an aggressive gamble needing to pit again.
As it turned out it was a good strategy call.

At the end from Lap 15 it was chasing down the front runners with some fresh boots.
A good clean battle with @Rgm12345 on the last lap. I thought I had the win in the bag going into the final lap, but @Rgm12345 got me under drs. Finishing just .400 secs behind in P2 left me mixed emotions lol

Well done @Rgm12345

2.6 Pit stops:

2.6.1
● Upon entering and exiting the pits, the whole car must stay within the white lines. If you cause a dangerous situation by crossing the pit entrance or exit line, or if this is done in a way that blatantly gains time or track position, you will be penalised.
@eyjafjallajökull you definitely should report this to the stewards. Having a drive through penalty is not a valid excuse for causing a dangerous situation. @leenvollaard could have defended to the right instead, which would have easily avoided the scenario. Another option was to simply let him by. (you weren't fighting him for position anyway since you were going into the pits)

I mean the race for me seems like a bit of a unusual one, with quali to be so close with pole was odd, but then in the race getting past zanefast and millsy on lap one, but then just being paranoid through both of the safety cars, and having the car under me to actually be fighting on race pace was also strange, but the second safety car allowing the soft strategy to work and having the cars behind swamping up zanefast and mo was scary but in the end I just got the win, but it was a fantastic race from everyone on my end, but that was a good way to get my second win in AOR
