May I just say, I did some research into the F1, F2 and F3 leagues of Australia and realised both me and Grezsiu (and presumably a lot of other people a bit further back wouldve done well too) would've got a podium in F3, 4th in F2 and 9th in F1. None of these races have rain.
[DOUBLEPOST=1507151339][/DOUBLEPOST]I know I at the very least had to only make 2 overtakes the entire race, but still - the clashing in tier performances is real.

Yeah, sometimes the difference between the tiers is nonexistent. Time Trial wise I am appr. 7 tenths behind the top guys in split 1...so theoretically I would have been able to drive in this league (even with no real chance on good finishes) for the past years. Just shows the competetivness in this years season.

And that's why I'm not kicking your ass and drive lonely up front, coming from split 1 last game. I expected this before the start of the season, so I felt I'd have a nice competetive field in this split. Sorry for making the prediction league so much harder though :D

not tryna be a douche but,

@Yuridiculous from what I saw from other POVs, you need to slow down in race start. you dive bombed iZi on turn1; no crash but if you watch, you BARELY stopped in time. turn 2 you dive bombed AGAIN and made contact with Thm.

I am only asking for more control of your car -- we aren't AI that will drive out of your way instantly when you dive bomb

*edit* not just yuri but to everyone, lets focus on having a 100% clean race

Okay guys, tomorrow I won't be racing since I need to study. I will hopefully be home on time to be your host and invite everyone but if that won't be the case I would be very happy if @Chicane could host? And then in that case make sure to that everyone adds him in steam to get an invite. Maybe @Yuridiculous could also help out and adding everyone?:angelic:

Also if you two could both take screenshots of the full results (with and without penalties for all drivers) and take screenshots of qualy? That would be very helpful!

If someone else also wants to volenteer to help that is helpful too!

Q: Put in a "meh" lap, could have saved 3-4 tenths if i didnt had a realy bad first corner. But didn't think I would be so far outside the top ten, P13 :eek:

R: Started on fresh set of softs as there would be a lot of traffic at the start and didnt want to ruin my set of SS.
Had a pretty good start compared to @Yuridiculous and specialy @GRZEGORZ who seemed to had alot of wheelspin. Because of that @koldo got stuck behind him and I got 3 places within the first 200 metres. Went a bit wide in the first corner but stayed on track and got another place because someone went off. After a bit of squabbling I was able to overtake @Lunation, then I tried to stay with a train of SS runners. They seemed to pull away the first few laps but their tires didnt last too long. Went to follow @DackeBerg @Aaron Shum and @only4win, my tires were still pretty good at that stage and managed to sneak past @Aaron Shum and @only4win after a few laps. When all the SS drivers pitted I finaly had some laps were no battling happend, @Chicane kept closing in on me when I was starting to struggle on my softs. He pitted 1 lap earlier and got out in front once i made my pit-stop, nothing I could to prevent that. Came out in p4 on lap 18 with a fresh set of SS. I didnt think I would be that close to the podium after I made my pit-stop. @LambreX was on old mediums and pitted for fresh tires and @MakuF1 was on Softs and was a relatively easy overtake aswell. Stayed realy close to @Chicane and went pretty agressive to try and take P1 before tyre wear started to play a role. Managed to overtake him before the main straight and pulled a 1.5 sec gap. This gap however was bouncing around from 0.5 to 1 secound the last 8 laps before the finaly reaching the finishing line. P1!!!!!
