I want to apologise to anyone whose race I affected on turn 1 lap 1. Since one of the newer patches I've had issues where i get random frame rate drops when playing online which in this instance caused me to miss the brake marker board and then lock up massively, causing the collision.

Its no excuse though and going forward I'll keep random game bugs in mind when lots of cars are grouped up and be a lot more conservative in case of random glitches that might endanger other people's races.

Here's the first half of my race, had to stop recording halfway because of all the freezing.

Good race for me, as high as P6, until @EL_Sonny divebombed me and I spun, and then I damaged my front wing from @Thompson braking so early. But me crashing out was my own doing, aided by the slippery conditions. Simply locked up and went straight into the wall. Currently uploading footage of the whole race, including after I crashed out. I was mostly following the battle for P5.
Yeah sorry about that, i was braking 10m early the whole race due to a bit front wing damage.

Lap 1 turn 2 was complete aids , but the battle with @Thompson close to the end was really good with some great defensive driving from him.
My Highlights:
I enjoyed the battle aswell :)

First pole in 6 seasons, in full wet conditions no less! Got mugged by @Smash at turn 1 due to having no slipstream and tried to stay as close to him as I could and follow his pace. I gambled on going ultrasoft thinking the rain would come sooner, but my main competition was Smash and whatever he would do (pit or continue), I'd do the same. Fortunately, Russia is easy on tyres so we (he was also on ultras) were able to make them last until lap 16. Then I began to slowly gain time on him in the wet as I believed I was faster (due to quali performance), but I wasn't gaining enough.

In the end, P2 is awesome, and the fact that I finished 1.6sec behind P1 is even better.

I won't post my recording since I was P2 all race and had 0 battles.

Q: P5, I wasn't satisfied to my lap at all, there was easily a lot of time to be gained, but as it was my first wet laps, I can't complain too much.

R: P11, Got ok launch from the start, and avoided the collisions in turn 2, but I got a 5sec penalty because illegal overtaking, which was total BS. The first lap was nice, and I was P3 after turn 2. Literally nothing happened until lap 16, when it was raining, I was trying to push a bit too much, as @Mr. Biggles was catching me, so I made a huge mistake in the exit of turn 4, and lost a lot of time. Lap 20 I made a very stupid mistake again in the exit of turn 4, which made me collide with @kaneshka.gupta (sorry for that mate), and few laps after that, in the start of lap 23, I made a stupid mistake again, which sealed my race.
Overall I think my driving was very bad, definitely a race to forget, as it could've been a possible podium finish. Eyes to the next race, and let's hope for a better one!

So that's what happened to you! Before the pit stop sequence on lap 16, you were ~7sec behind me and after the cycle you were nowhere to be seen, and Biggles was there instead and closer! I was so confused as to where you went!
