Becketts or just before, so I lost already around 5 tenths here,
I could still hope for a 1:17,0. Then in the last sector, I
went through the gravel. It was really annoying, because it
made me do only a 1:21, so I had to start in the lasts. Finally
I started 13th, thanks to penalities given to drivers in team
have more than 2 drivers swapped. The rules are the rules. I
was just in front of Mikael Koel =D ! We
started, the lag was really important, and I had during the
whole race less than 15 pict/sec. Pretty much mistakes in the
first laps for the other drivers, and I could get the 11th place
soon. I was fighting with Wayne during a long time but it was
impossible to overtake him because of the
lag. When, after 2 or 3 laps he did also a mistake.
Gab. He has a pretty amazing behaviour when we are behind
him and overtaking him, so it was pretty hard to overtake
him. In the turn after
Priory (I don't remenber the name), he did a mistake too
and went outside of the race line pretty much. I thought
I could pass him, but he went slower (very much slower)
and went inside the curve. I hitted him. I think it was
impossible to avoid him and it is obvious that the accident
happened in an accelerating zone, where Gab let the car
slow down, instead of accelerate.
His rear wing didn't brake. He did a spin, and an another
driver broke his rear wing. I made a drive through penality,
so I respected the rules.
this moment I understood that I had to change my strategy,
because the car is pretty cool with the fuel, I could
stop 3 laps later than I should,
and got enough fuel to go to the lap 44. So I could do
a 2 pit stops strategy.
think it was the best thing to do, because I couldn't
overtake on the track, but only with a better strategy,
skipping a pit-stop. I was as fast to follow the other
drivers, and I passed a lot of drivers like that, Michael,
Markus, Sebastien, Matteo, Benny. After this annoying
start, 5th is not so bad. I want to thank all my team,
and also Soren for the work we did together.
the game now : Many many lags, especially when the drivers
are in the pits. Maybe it is better to forbid the Hi-qual
for technicians. Perhaps we have to down the main graphics
in our own computers. We were only 17 competitors. On
the same server, with 22 drivers, it will be impossible
to drive, if we don't fix up some (or many) problems.
last word for Riis, it has been very nice to work with
