Members Involved: @Dan_Suzuki
Lap & Corner: Lap 14 - Hairpin, turn 4
Description: Coming up to the hairpin I'm ahead of Dan into braking. I then got a small punt from behind which I held on to, and then within a short matter of time another one which made me lose control and 3 positions in the process. The obvious move would be to wait and hand back the position which he obviously didn't.

Sorry about the first tap. On 2nd contact - why do you want to close the door when there's a car next to you? I mean I also can't dissapear there, there was a lot of space on the left side of the track yet you decided to close the door there.

I wouldn't class this as being "next" to someone. After the first punt it pretty much ruined my run through the corner. I can not see this as being a fair move in the slightest.

Closing the door, check my steering wheel - I'm keeping the same lock.

If I wasn't "next" to you, then why did you spin?

Anyways, don't wanna argue here - I'd say it's a racing incident, but I'm sorry that this cost you a few positions, of course I'd have prefered to not have a car contact.

This never would have happened in the first place if I didn't get that first hit, I wouldn't have run wide and we would have made it out from that corner cleanly. That's my final say on it.

Yeah you're probably right. After the first tap I should've just given you the corner.
