Oh yeah, i should probably post on here.. Sorry about the lack of content! I was kinda busy after the monaco race, so i didn’t do a report from there.. then it made sense to not post and well.. yeah..
Alright, Monaco.. firstly, apologies to Electrolite and whoever got caught up in that qualifying fiasco. Spud spun on the exit of pitlane and somehow i collected him, glitched inside him, then broke the game.. anyway, it autodrove my car for the entire first sector. I quick to the pause menu, frantically trying to release the car. I even pulled up the chat box and was halfway through writing a message! unfortunately there was nothing i could do, and i ruined a couple of flying laps. As if my luck couldn’t get any “better”, I pulled the lap of my life while thinking about how i ruined someones race, and reading the chat boxes appear at the top right.. didn’t know it wasn’t a bad lap until i made it onto the final straight.. Even though it turned out to be the fastest lap that I’d ever driven even when not paying attention to the road, it felt like a hollow victory. I didn’t deserve that pole.
Anyway, went ok. Ruined the strategy by staying out too long on the second stint. apart from that, nothing special.
As for Spa, really struggled with qualifying. Was Lucky to drop it on 5th.
Got the jump of the century (for once) and made my way forward. Completely misjudged the braking zone and cannonballed into SLR! Sorry!
and here’s something i wrote earlier.. (on facebook mobile chat, mind my grammar!)
got the start of the century, which was nice for a change
jostled into t1
bounced off slr
kersed my way into eau rouge
me an ed sidebyside
exactly like webvalonso
we go into eaurouge 2 wide
we go 2 wide
then down the straight
I tuck in behind him
try to go inside into les combes
I go outside
we go 2 wide at the apex
next thing i know i’m spinning with a redbull
stick the foot down
get laggy with davidjv
came across jonny, slr, ed and someone else at the bustop
we diced all the way to la source
there was 5 of us
then we went 2 wide to eau rouge
then it was a blur, i think i kept behind slr for a lap
then passed them
mag had an 8 second lead
he pitted on lap 5
I stayed out till lap 10
I only had to pit once for inters
came out 7 seconds ahead of mag
held the gap till the finish
first 5 laps were mega, rest were boring
yeah, that’s about it.. also, Singapore! Thought I was good at this track, but it turns out I’m delightfully average. It’s gonna be a long one though. Get ready for (possibly) the longest race in Collantine Cup history!
