Qualifying – 2nd
I was expecting to be mid-pack, so I was quite surprised when I got provisional pole, and have everyone post times slower…until @CommonMonsoon posted his, and went 9 tenths quicker.
Had a last gasp effort towards the end of quali, but still finished 0.713 behind Damon, and a second in front of @Electrolite
Race – 2nd
Probably the most uneventful, boring race I’ve ever participated in.
I got a good start off the line, but was hit by @CommonMonsoon into the first corner, which broke my front wing. This put me down to 4th as we headed up to Eau Rouge. @Sato-113 was a little slow through there, and I almost hit him, despite that, I got a good run on him on the Kemmel straight, and braked early into turn 7, knowing that with the heavy fuel, some would probably miss the apex. The Ferrari did happen to do that, and as he went wide, pushed me off the track. I tried to slow down, but there wasn’t much I could do, and I pushed him into a half-spin. So I’m sorry about that.
The other Ferrari popped out of nowhere, as did Supernicebob’s McLaren, the latter of which was able to pass, whilst @Alfie was a little wide coming out of Le Combes. Supernicebob then went wide through Bruxells, allowing me into third, and try to catch Damon and Slr.
I was about 9 tenths away from Slr at the start of lap 2, though I seemed to be a lot quicker on the Kemmel straight, and pulled a pass into turn 7. He stayed with me for the rest of the lap, and I was beginning to fear the DRS, but nothing came of it, and I had to push on to catch Damon.
Nothing happened after that. Damon slowly pulled away, especially in the pits, when I had to change my front wing, which awarded him an extra 5 seconds on me.
I think our pace was a lot closer on the prime tyre, but there was no way I was going to catch him, without him making a mistake, so I really just tried to go as quickly as possible and hope for that.
Bit of a disaster with the mass disconnect, but I don’t really have enough knowledge about the matter to voice anything worthy.
Congrats again to @CommonMonsoon it’ll definitely be very hard to overhaul your points lead now. My video of the ‘highlights’ of the race will be up later.
EDIT: After reading the comments, I think a countback would be best. Can’t really go by two results :P
