I don't know if it was because of the delay before formation lap but the tyres were very cold at the formation lap and the start. I've seen that my teammate had it as well, but don't know about others. Because I was the only one starting on mediums, I needed more time to get them up to temperature but when I final got passed Luca after a long side by side battle, I could settle in a nice rhythm and build confidence.

With rain around the corner it was a nobrainer to stay out as long as possible to do a 1 stop to intermediates, if wet enough. At the end of lap 17 tyres were reaching puncture territory so I had to pit. Gambled on those intermediates because the track was going towards intermediates. For a couple of laps it was almost equal and I could keep @scotchtape20 behind me, but in lap 21, he was able to pass around the outside in the final chicane. Lap 22 track was clearly drying again and Scotchtape pulled a 7 second gap or so.

Was an exciting race even though the highlights vid isn't that long. It was about what the weather was gonna do. If the track had gotten wetter in lap 18 and clearly for intermediates, I probably would've stolen the win. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But I feel good that I gambled on it. If I would've taken the SS or S tyre, I'd have finished only one place higher anyway.

Highlights:
Track was supercold, thats why tyres werent warming up at all at the formation lap
