8 for the race, lots of overtakes, no penalties and really consistent overall.
Qualifying 11th wasnt really helpful, but overall the collisions with @ch1cken1990 cost mme a shot at the podium, still i really enjoyed the battleing out there!

I'd say T3 on lap 1 was my key moment. I'd noticed in a practice race that everyone hugs the inside and trundles around the apex, so I just launched it around the outside and gained like 3 positions to make up for a meh qualifying :p
2) The last two races on PS4 in china were soaking wet, how do you see the possible prospect of a wet race and how do you feel about the layout of china compared to Melbourne

It wouldn't surprise me, not that I'd want it based on the esports event... I prefer Melbourne, long sweeping corners aren't really my thing, though at least track limits are much less of an issue here.
3) With whom did you have the most enjoyable battle in Australia?

Alex and Chicken. I let Alex through hoping that he'd hold up Chicken, turned out to be a good call! @Bankai_Bullett even called it in the youtube chat ;)

Pole: Ollie

1) Rate your race from 1-10 and what was the crucial moment that defined the outcome of your race?
A solid 3/10, and that all started off with bottling quali, as usual.

2) The last two races on PS4 in china were soaking wet, how do you see the possible prospect of a wet race and how do you feel about the layout of china compared to Melbourne

China suits me a lot more than Australia, so we'll see. Quali pace is shockingly bad, race pace is decent.

3) With whom did you have the most enjoyable battle in Australia?

No one, kept getting taken out or forced off.

Great race going to p2 off the lights then got taken out at the end and given about 40 secs worth of pens. Absolute joke. Will be ridiculous if I don’t get that p4 back or even the p3.

Quali: p8. Couldnt quite extract the maximum which would have been a 31.5/.6, but my setup wasnt meant to be good in quali anyways.
Race: p1 Got a very lucky start and could manage to pull my strategy of without having any problems. Why where Alex and i the only once who noticed that the softs where ages faster compared to the mediums lol. Had a great fight with @Ollie_D631 and managed to get passed to win the race. Tbh after i saw that i startet in p8 i didnt expect that at all. I'm a little bit sad for the guys who started ahead of me, who where involved in the crash. I think it was just a very unlucky incident. On the other side its nice to see how competitive everyone is. The quali was as close as ever :)
