One of the few tracks last season where I was faster than @Maxxwil, no chance of that happening this season though. :p

I'm super excited to return this week, however it will be a struggle, I fell off a ladder doing work at my house and then further messed up my right ankle on the same day at work :ROFLMAO:. Lots of swelling and pain, hopeful that it goes away by Sunday. If there is no rain I expect to be very fast as I've had two weeks to prepare, if it rains however, there will be serious issues:ROFLMAO:

Last time here I qualified a solid last place, so it will be interesting to see if I can repeat that incredible result! I really love this track, and I managed to finish P4 despite starting last, so I'm hoping for some decent pace this weekend. Especially if I want to stay in the fight for the title. Its sort of getting out of reach. Not that it was ever that close, but by finishing in the points at all races so far I find myself in P3!? Let's have a good one at this amazing racetrack!

Another bad qualifying for me. I really gotta work on that.
The race was amazing though. I got a good start. No problem, almost scratch free the entire race. I think I was involved in the incident that caused the safety car. Sorry @iJokeri22 if I squeezed you a bit too much or something. I would like to see that from your POV.
I should have just pitted straight away for inters, but I forgot how long the game like to keep out the safety car, so I stayed out, and lost some time.
When I eventually pitted for inters, I had really good pace and managed to close in on the top 3. It then suddenly dried out, and it was time for slicks, but I didn't notice it was drying up, so I stayed out... Again... Losing me time... Again...
The game gave me a very harsh 5 second penalty for slightly cutting a corner, and I didn't even have a single warning the whole race, so that will probably get removed.
I then chased down @Jipper in the final three laps, and overtook him around the outside in the chicane. Really satisfied with that move ;)

Great race altogether.
Congratulations @HaiCo . What a drive.
And again. Sorry @iJokeri22 , if I caused a bit of a pileup back there.

You did nothing wrong I had wing damage from the first lap and I think I just touched your sidepod and half spun.

Oh, okay. I didn't know you had damage. I would have left you more space if I had known you wouldn't be able to steer that well :/

So, for me personally this was the most enjoyable race in a long time. Qualifying was a bit dissapointing with somebody retiring on track while I was right behind him (resulting in wing damage on my final out lap).

Race started well, could get from P7 to P6 right at the start and then after a few laps I was behind both the Haas cars. Then the safety car came out which caused the biggest **** in the short history of F1 racing I experienced so far. I feel sorry for both @Icko and @Maxxwil. We could have had great battles still for the race win, but both of you 'kinda' got screwed over. @Maxxwil you deserved this win. Hopefully your bad luck ends here and now.

Could afterwards close gaps of 5-6 seconds. No idea where the pace came from, it was just there I guess.
