My fears did come true, and my friend did turn up halfway through the race…which would explain my lack of pace. That and trying to make some options last for way too long (damn you team!!) was why I often made it easy for people to pass, as I was going to lose way too much time holding people up on different strategies. @bradley13 we did touch, luckily I held it, but it wasn’t too bad. I I had quite a few nice battles actually with a few people – shame I couldn’t get into this one as much as I’d have liked. I believe I was within 10 seconds of you (and someone else?), so give or take the penalty, I’d still be 4th.
Managed to get my first pole of the season! I was pretty pleased with that as I knew @MoSs-611 would be quick.
In the race, I got off to a great start. I took it easy because of the strategy I wanted to use. Moussa soon passed me, and then the safety car happened, and the rest is self explanatory.
