Yeah thanks for that mate, I was faster on softs than your older tyres. Was still trying to find a race and enjoyed it despite the low finishing position.Wow finally i brought my car home.
My Qualy was supposed be slow to avoid any collisions in Lap 1 which happened alot even on the straight right in front of me.
P2 after a quite lonely but very challenging race because of the 1 stop.
Perfectly tyre management brought me there.
I even let the backmarker on P17 @Jay pass me to avoid any collision and keep on driving my yellow car home.
Will get a 5 sec penalty removal after all which i got from "blue flags" after my stop.
Hope you all enjoyed this race as much as i did.
where did i finish just out of curiosity?Man, that was a disaster, decent start, up to 4th, staying with @MAGNUSSEN ahead but having to fend off @Smu3l3y behind, who eventually overtook me. Nothing too eventful, ran extra wide at T1 to make sure I didn't get anywhere near touching MAG again.
Went rather downhill from there, came out of the pits on mediums, into some traffic, memory's a bit hazy on this part, was making some progress but not as much as I would have liked, ended up right behind MAG once again though. Around lap 10 or so, we come up to @azazelon who makes a little mistake going up the hill out of the esses, and MAG gets through. I attempt to follow, but this combined with azazelon trying to regain control means that our wheels touch and I go into a spin. No damage at this point though.
Lose about 4 places, stay with them and start to make one or two up, but others on newer tyres coming up behind as well. Struggling to get a good enough exit to overtake on the straights but getting really held up in the slower sections. Eventually, I catch back up to Azazelon again, with the rest of the group, and this time I get caught out by the slower apex speed, and tap the back of him, not too hard, but I manage to pick up a red front left endplate for it. This happens on around lap 12-13 and so I can't pull off a two stop anymore, have to go into the pits for repairs. But before I can even do so, me and smu3l3y's cars seem to magnetise towards each other and we both go spinning off, only a couple of corners later. After recovering from this I make it back to the pits.
I went back onto softs, put some decent but not amazing laptimes in, passing cars here and there, but they go off quickly and I'm back into the pits on lap 19 for mediums, very touch and go as to whether they would last but I decided to go for it, and pass some people I wasn't expecting to through the pit-stops. MAG, who was one of them, is on softs and after a couple of laps goes flying past me, and lo and behold by the end of the race I'm back on the gearbox of azazelon once more. With only a couple of laps left, and by the end of the race over 80% wear on my front left, I can't get the move done, but the fact that I had 9 seconds of penalties meant it didn't matter anyway.
End of the race I was 12th, penalties added, but 11th if you take Kevvie out of the equation.
tl;dr Very sloppy race on my part, and couldn't find my way past other cars well enough throughout. No points is a real annoyance.
