Members Involved: @Vanders (#58 Aston) and @z2h2turbo (#555 Audi)

Description:
Going into the left-right kink, #555 decides to try and go side-by-side through the first part, which is rarely a good idea when you're fully side-by-side, but even less of a good idea given he's a fair bit behind me going into the corner. I know he's there and leave as much space as I can bearing in mind I still have to turn left to make the corner. Normally I'd be clipping the apex here, but I'm no where near it. He hits my rear three-quarter, spinning me out. Result was 10 seconds of damage, dead last behind the leaders and being forced to do 50 minutes on one set of tyres. Video evidence below.

The stewards concluded that @z2h2turbo was entitled to receive racing room in the corner as he was engaged side by side before the braking zone.
The collisione will be considered a racing incident and no further actions will be taken.
