Ou boy, this was lit. IDK if fxruppert wanted to block me so Racemonster45 could overtake me, but that's exactly what happened. Great wingman :clap: :clap:

Q/R Report.

Q: Did a 1.17.3 on the S, was an alright time, but Didn't feel quick enough. So I went out on the SS and set a 1.16.3 with a small lockup at turn 10.

R: Was going for the 1 stop, SS > M. Was an hard challenge but I decided to change and pit and to change to a 2 stop. A 2 stop was deffo slower, but I knew that when I went on the SS in Q, so I had a big challenge ahead. Luckily I had some good race pace and managed to get P3 while only being 3 seconds behind P1.

@trumpa94 First of all, there's no need to be salty, because it was a battle for position, so I have the right to defend my position, which imo I did pretty fairly.
In addition to that, I had a damaged front wing, so I couldnt really go faster, especially because spain has so many fast corners.
All I want to say is that this manouevre wasnt intentional at all and may just have been the consequence of my frustration about this race. Let's just forget about it and look forward to the next race. See you on track ;)

Q/R Report.

Q: Not a good qualifying at all. Wanted to start on S, so my first try on M was just for fun. Then my first run on S got invalidated, had to box and messed up my second try. 1:17.8 was just good enough for P10.

R: Decent start, struggling the first few laps, but with some nice racing/overtaking. After that i had a good race pace and managed the S tyres pretty well. P2 after L8, 5s behind @FlexesMarci . Till the end of the stint i was able to catch up and bring the gap down to less then 1s as he pitted. I visited the box 1 lap later and just came out with FlexesMarci next to me, but lost the fight. On the M i had not such a good pace like on the S. While he was able to overtake @FraGioco9, who was on another strategy and struggling with his old tyres, i was stuck behind him for 1 lap, loosing 2s. In the following i kept the gap at 2s, which was enough for the race win, because FlexesMarci had a time penalty. But i had to look also behind me, because @Westyy was coming. Luckily he was also awarded a time penalty. In the end my pace was dropping, finishing before Westyy but 4s behind FlexesMarci.

Congrats to FlexesMarci for the win and Westyy for the podium finish.

Another exciting race for me :) I got the best finish position with my race pace. I think if I started with S tyres I would be p5 again :p

@fxruppert I hit you from behind again after Baku. I think you usually brake early :D

@JrHonour I might possibly brake earlier than you because I've turned off the racing line and rather want to have a good exit out of the corner than a good entry :) and in this race I was also suffering from front wing damage which may be the main reason why you ran into me. I'm glad that you at least didn't take any damage from this incident (y)

Q: was surprised that I could deliver P4 after only 10 laps of practice. Also noticed some drivers went on S tyres but I figured I will be able to preserve my tyres like in the last game. I mean, how hard can it be...

R: that did not happen. I was destroying my tyres very fast, that's why I pitted twice. That proved to be a bad strategy and I ended P10. Not bad for first GP, but I was expecting more after Q
