Description: I was focussed on the cars in front coming into the braking area and turning into T16. The car behind appears to decelerate then come forward quite suddenly to my inside and hits me as I take my line into the turn. Unfortunately, it caused significant damage which gave handling problems subsequently (and a loss of control into Maggots).

Hi, from my POV (behind the car view) RedTerrier had followed the blue car in front and left a substantial gap on the left which I tried to use, he' enters the corner going wide and cuts back mid corner and maybe didn't see me and hits my car.
The only thing I could have done was taken to the grass and that would have been worse.
I apologises in advance if it was my fault.
