In terms of the racing alone, I had a good race – competitive pace, 1:23.9 on the Option, was pretty decent, albeit not up with the leaders, and unlike last season I was catching and passing people, and having good fun.
Unfortunately, the stewards decided to be bloody bastards around corner cutting, okay I’m not going to deny there were a few corner cuts, but they were v marginal, and most of the time I lost time!
Worst example was on the chicane before the fast left right kink, I ran a bit wide on the ride, an got a f’ing corner cutting penalty for the left kink…. such a joke.
Ended up being dq’d for “multiple incidents” of corner cutting, and that was me done. Really annoying because I had some good battles with y2j, my team mate strunk, washeduprocker, infernikus and other, and was running up in 2nd at one point, due to my alternative, prime, option, option strategy.
Really gutted that the stewards cost me a good result, probably around 6th to 8th place, on a packed grid….
Role on China, but it’s not a strong one for me unfortunately….
Congrats to Lemon for the win, leading home a Mclaren 1/2….
