Really looking forward to this race as it was a bit of a disappointment last season.

Quali: 9th

Was looking forward to this race and felt competitive (scene of my only win waaay back in S8). Had shite internet all day (on and off, random speed) but turned everything off and reset the router. And prayed. And it stayed connected with reasonable speed, seems my livestream was forfeit though. Something must've failed as I got 17 seconds of black screen then failed to render in the Creator Studio so I deleted it on Monday, normally it's up Monday morning at the latest.

So went out on the S to do a banker lap and see how the times fell. Was compromised by S3 being a car park - really guys, swerving about just gets tyre wear not temperature on this game so I'd like to see that disappear from future races. Anyway, was a second off on a 1:29.8, fucked up the run by hitting the menu button when I wanted the pit limiter and did an extra lap as the AI returned to track 😫. Only had the one Q set so switched to the SS and decided to try and deliver the lap, still wasn't very good as I was able to do a 28.2, think I ended up on a 28.7 and was kind of disappointed 9th wasn't 3rd or even 11th as that would have helped the strat.

Race: 5th SS/S (10)

Got a good start and made places in the first few corners, found myself in 4th and challenging @MartinTheJezuz for 3rd. I tried an attempt into Brooklands and clipped his left rear, that put me on the grass and dropped me to 8th. No complaints, I think he was fair closing the door. @Bobo kindly moved over when he got wing damage and was lagging for me; the car he was fighting when he got the contact wasn't (don't remember who it was). Anyway, ideally I'd have gone on the S first but lap 10 is okay I think I had 60-odd% wear on the left rear.

Made an unforced error in The Loop and ran onto the apron that cost me about 5 seconds but I made good time on the S and wasn't being caught but equally not gaining. None of the out of pit sequence cars held me up too much so when it all shook out I was net 6th, only real pass was on @Sweatu as he was on the M. His pace was quite consistent but eventually the S paid off and I took 5th. It was quite comfortable in the end, couldn't really close the gap to @Steffe in 4th but for the little incidents I could have been on for a podium shot.

Q: P10
didnt felt to confident but i think couldve been P5 or smth like that

R: P6
was at the inside at the start and got a tricky situation with @ArrowMax because he still got cars on his outside but i lost no places bc of the 2 redbulls thx xD
got wing dmg at the end of lap 2 bc @Bobo was lagging and a Sauber braked bc of this -.-
pitted in Lap 3 on mediums and after everyone did his pitstop i was surprisingly P6, i knew there would be faster soft runners (was my plan too)
second surprise this race: @Jay was fast 😂, was happy after his mistake and thought i could make P6 but then he closed me down really fast and felt not to confident on my old mediums, after jay overtook me i managed to keep up with him for a few laps and thought for a second i could overtake him at the end bc his soft were gone but did a mistake and he was gone ... meh. still P6 at the end bc diesel pitted idk why
