quali – 5th
Had the Pace for Pole, but after setting yhe fastest S1 ran off at Lesmo 1, costing me that chance
Race – 7th
Got a Great Start, pulled ahead of shane well before turn 1. broke a tad late, and suddenly, a flying caterham slammed me up the rear, caused me to run into Jaime, and ruin my start.
SO, with David stuck to my sidepod like glue through the runoff at the 1st chicane, i was in 6th/7th. I had real troubles slowing the car down for the first 6/7 laps, running wide through chicanes and almost pulling off the miraculous around the outside of Parabolica on Tom.
Alot of Laps went by with warnings of Rain, warnings that i’d gone well beyond my planned stop (L14), the crash with Shane (all good mate), and i realised the Mediums (Options) lasted very very well, so well that i ran them for 23 laps before stopping for inters as rain poured and poured. ended up a good half minute behind Shane in 6th and finished 1 lap behind Oli, the winner.
My Driver of the Day goes to Jaime cos although a chain reaction caused him and half the pack (including myself) to block T1, he did a stella job to fight back for 2nd place
BTW i really need to get over this lag issue. i know its been round since malaysia, and im sorry to say i cant move the PS3 closer my other TV which is much much closer to the wireless modem because we already have Foxtel IQ there, and my family use the front all of the time, especially 7pm AEST/10am GMT, so i cant argue there
