Casper, are the stewards going to make a decision on the time penalty appeals? As if there successful they would change the provisional grid order.

I haven't heard anything from the stewards yet. It's unlikely a decision will be made today. So the current provisional starting grid order will stay the same.

This pretty much sums up my last 2 races:

Absolutely maddening that I again have my race, basically ruined by someone else just after the start.
I was going to be ok and cautiously go round SNS, but some moron decides instead of being cautious they keep on the power and drive into him which knocks SNS into my path and I clip his rear, and I yet again pick up wing damage through no fault of my own.

And looking at the results and the pace after the race, I'm honest enough to admit I doubt I would've been on the pace of the front guys, but I still would've liked the chance to find out for myself, in the end I was left with a pretty dull 20 minute drive to the end.

Definitely a frustrating end to what had initially been a enjoyable series to race in.

Well it was a good few races all round even if I had to miss one. I actually got an incredible start for once tonight and everyone just seemed to get out of my way on lap 1, after that everybody at the front seemed to have basically the same pace and we all went around in a train and amazingly no one had any penalties so I finished P4.
