Finaly jeez,

Quali
- Well looking at hotlaps my PB was pole, but in quali i locked up, and
lost that 0.1, and that let alonso slip though. and get pole,

Race - Well as in prac starts last night all my starts were good,
And again when it counts i went from p2 to p1 right off lthe line.
Arjan got a mega start and was p2, and this left me to build a big gap.

Just after 1st pit sc as deployed, arjan still p2.. on the restart i pulled out again,
lead was about 20seconds, and in middle of race b4 sc came out again.
and wen went in, i again pulled out again..

Was
serprised at my pace, only time i lost lead was after 3rd stop, but i
passed morgan and haz straight away,, haz being very fair, thnks.

So
crossed the line to take the win, and extend lead in title race,
finally after 2 bad races with net and breaks,, was a big relife to get
this win.

we now head to silverstone, home gp so wanna do well here,

Big well done to alonso, and dan p3 with no breaks lol,,
haz so unlucky mate 3rd wen engine bang last lap,

and lee solid drive m8 great pace,

cheers lads

Ok first of all i wanna replay to rib your right we said we restart for lags/net failure but we didnt so we need to make sure whats goin on otherwise lots of drivers will be dissapointed.

To corry dunno why your engine failed looks like mercedes engine aint good lol just kiddin
now really i dont know why your engine failed and i feel really sorry for you m8 as you were quick as fuck and im sure you would have got my over race distance. Now we need to find out what happend and solve it.

Now to my Race weekend.


Quali: Q1 was good tested last changes and get rythmn for q2 and q3

Q2 was good aswell first time out with softs and really low fuel.

Q3 was awesome and i got the pole i was waiting for so long and it felt so damn good.

Race:

Start was bad lost to arjan and couldnt even keep up to him and had a very quick corry right up my ass.
Now pitted lap 12 after sc and i managed to get a gap to others behind and kept it.
I had some damage after i hit wall lap 1 on the start wich you can may see on lee`s race vids. I repaired all the damaged in my 2nd stop and thats why dan was close behind me then.

Next i was havin nice battles with dan, and awesome battle with andrew who pitted under sc and i had to pass him to get anything or even a chance at dave. Got andrew after 3 laps behind him. Then behind haz got him under braking into hairpin in sector 2.

Gotta say all drivers very fair and nice.

At end matthew well done p8 is very good and also fillipos in p9 well done you 2. Also Lee with p6 and sorry for haz,cunnie,corry,arjan and others that didnt finish.

Congrats to dave for win will be hard to beat him especially that nxt race is the
"HOME RACE" of nearly everyone so i guess everyone is fired up and wants to be extra strong.

See ya all on the Silverstone track

Quali = 5 or 6th

Race = too much tyre wear meant an extra pit stop compared to rivals.

Good start, but cautious into turn 1. Battle with florian and corry i think. It all got very close, and hit by dan up the rear. Next lap he was overtaking me as i was overtaking corry; Dan hit my sidepod and I somehow caught the slide. Dan, sportingly, let me back through.

Even with safety car, I had to pit on lap 8; no tyre left. Good battles with Haz, Alonso etc.

At the end, I had to manage fuel. Finished with 1.5 litres left. Hard luck to Haz (his pace and tyre management was very good, same for matt). Well done lee as well

P.S. just wanna say sorry to rib and cunnie for not calling for a restart. Rib was right that there is little consistency (in canada, there were numerous restarts). Off the top of my head, why not after the first 2 laps have a vote across the start finish line; "y" to restart; "n" to not restart that race control can count?

e.g. Rib did 138 laps of testing; Cunnie 143. I was in their situation in China a few seasons back and I wasnt happy. Sad to hear about Cunnie leaving, but such frustration is understandable; hope you change your mind mate.

Many thanks for your comments Alonso and Mr. Morgan. Your understanding means a lot.
