Ok first report from Valencia. BTW the pics above is like Webber and alonso see the Borg coming into the room and wanna take everyone with em into their ship. webbers like wtf they wont take me lol.

Anyway did some laps and the version of track aint the best but ok gotta deal with it and as i really like the track itself i got to rythmn quick and im already happy with setup and everything else.

Only thing is even the harder tyre looks to make 11-12 laps max wich isint what it should be so maybe there something we can do???

Day 1 -

Solid 1st day, found a good balence quite fast, and did quick times straight out the box.
Adjusted the set up and was 0.3 up, but didnt finisheh the lap as myself and cosie got together. hehe,

anyway long week to go plenty of time to improve car.
tyres dont last long but makes for a much better race, more mixed stops etc, looking 4ward to it.

Initial laps looking ok, what is concerning is not brakes for me but tyre wear. I think that it will be interesting to see the strategies used by others as for me 3 stops at least with how hard i am on the tyres

just noticed maximum fuel allows for 47 laps, race distance is 57, is this a bug?
need to test brakes due to my retirement in Canada due to failure even though had duct 5. possibly to harsh due to my driving so trying to be as smooth as possible but also efficiant.

Day 2 -

Another solid day. made another 0.4 on my time wich i can do from the 1st lap.
and have also improved car to make last 2 corner easy, which has also improved life of the tyres.

but like the last 2 races have proved, pace is one thing crossing the line in 1st is what counts, so a lot of work is needed to make sure this happens,

breaks are getting hotter here then in canada, so high duct needed, and thicker pads,

more tomorrow

Done some laps today, quite happy with pace. Been looking at Hotlaps not as far off as i usually am mainly becuase i spent about 4 hours last night tweaking alot on the car. I will be at practice but will be in commentary box for a majority of the session hopefully with justin. Hopefull of a finish this weekend.

well Qauly was one the best ones in my carreer p4 not bad at all after i tought i would like be at like p8 after an disaster week of testing but finaly found the pace and i was verry good.

Race- the best 25 laps of my carrreer could compete whit the top 5 apart from david ofcourse cus he is god Razz.
than my left front brake went and crashed whit 290 in the barrier coud save the car prettty much but than sufferd major brakes problem lost them all so i putted my car out on the bridge and retired Again a non finish behind my name.
this is the worsed season i had so far. But as Ayrton senna said '' even if i have some problems,i always look at the next race because 1 race i have no change but next one or the next 5 will be good against 1 bad one you need to make the numbers bigger''.
as i was happy whit my god almighty pace i had in my eyes im looking forward to the next race at silverstone and i hope i can finish there Very Happy.
Well this was my report for this weekend.
