On a flying lap in qualifying I caught @ART_Connor_74 going up the mountain. He had already let other cars pass but stayed on the racing line as I approached. I flashed my lights several times. He moved a little to the left but then came back towards the middle of the track and I was unable to react quick enough in the wet conditions. In the post race Discord chat he said he hadn't seen me until too late he clearly wasn't paying attention to his mirrors or the mini map. This ruined both of our last runs and almost caused other cars to hit us.

To explain what happened I let the McLaren and Bentley past. I saw them because I was looking in my mirrors and paying attention.

After I let them pass I looked again and didn't see anyone so I continued going a few seconds later I checked again and saw another Bentley coming, already committed to the right I stuck to it and went to get out of the way on the exit of the left. as I got to the exit I tried to pull slightly on to the grass to allow more space so he could pass. Unfortunately pretty much as soon as I hit the grass my front left locked and as a result I moved back toward the right, with my wheels pointed left the hole Time, I looked back in my mirror to see how close he was and then he ran in to the back of me. I mentioned all of this in discord to him but it seems he conveniently forgot to mention it to make me looks bad.

You have a mini map available to use on which you would've seen there was another car coming. You were going too slow through the right/left when you could've made a better effort to clear the corner instead of braking just the other side of it. I have to commit assuming you'll get well out of the way which you didn't. I don't need to refer to our exchange in Discord and I don't accept your account because it's clear you had a lack of awareness which is your responsibility on an out lap.

The stewards will not take any further action on this.

The stewards see this as unfortunate circumstance that sometimes happens during qualifying. @Apex_WhiteOut could have had better attention but also @Rotters91 could have anticipated that he couldn't take the normal racing line with a car being in front.
