Not a huge turn out, which was a shame, but I expect it to pick up at some point. Was still a good, close race though!
Quali – 4th
Didn’t bother setting a lap in qualifying, as there was only four of us, and I wanted to start on primes, so I thought it’d be best to have fresh ones than ones there were a lap or two old already.
Race – 1st
Won’t go into too much detail, but it was very close between myself, Bradley and Theo for the first 5 laps, with all of us leading at some point, and it was only until Bradley and Theo had a coming together on lap 4 I think that we separated as they went into the pits for repairs. Theo disconnected a couple of laps later, leaving a Mercedes battle for the win. Our strategies were completely different, so the lead changed quite a lot as and when we pitted.
The last 7 laps were great though, as I hunted Bradley down, me on options, him on primes. I’d only done 5 laps on my other set of options, so it was going to be tough. I was closing the gap, though not as quickly as I would have liked, I did get close on lap 28, but rammed into the back of him, thankfully not really effecting Bradley too much, and I lost out because of it.
The next lap I got close again, and backed off a little at the end to get a better run into turn 1, just taking the lead on the first corner on the last lap.
All in all, a very tough race!
