The saddest part is that although it was one of the tracks I was faster compared to most of the guys and where I did my best Q1 ever (6th place)... I screwed it up on Q2 (started the race in 10th) and in the race, I stepped the kerb on the exit of T2, spun, got hit by Tony (not his fault) and our cars were smashed on the wall - both of us lost wings and suspension... impossible to keep going.
Great way of 'finishing' one of my best 'potential' races in the league so far...
I feel as noob as Arek now...

Yes Otti it was you're fault Smile, god damn....i was 6th at the time with good speed, you where a bit too optimistic in that corner. But as it showed later brakes where very big problem, this is my first brake retirement. Also I noticed that whole grid disappeared at one moment, and cars infront of me sometimes driving sideways - like they are drifting on straight Smile, maybe some sever issue?

Anyway, I had good speed and I'm happy for that, Sexy helped a lot with simple, but crucial advice, Soutie helped with setup. In future races watch out, Luft is back Smile.

I worked around 100 hours this week and had very little sleep, so I was tempted not to race this one, but I did anyway.

I don't know why, but my car had no grip at all - so yes, my P19 (1:31.5) qualifying was actually representative of my pace.
Of course that made the race extremely difficult, but somehow I ended in the points.

So not the best race in terms of performance, but it was fun, albeit in an unusual way.

worst qualifying ever (where i haven't had a penalty or anything) in p17

i made up a few places into t1, but i got stuck on the kerb! luckily i got off but i was p22

then everyone just fell out my way. everyone was spinning or crashing in the first 5 laps or so.

i was running well up to lap 14 when i made my stop.

instead of pressing pit lane speed limiter button, i pressed the request pit stop button, so i sped in the pits and also my pit stop took 9 seconds. so i had to do a stop/go penalty. so in total from this shit i lost about 35 seconds.

then i got in some mess with guys at the back (i really don't see the point in holding up guys who are much faster than you, not beneficial to either).

but luckily everyone forgot to set their brake ducts correctly, so i made up a lot of places and got 7th. which is not so bad after being 22nd at t1!!

14 Re: 02 - Bahrain GP (shouting thread) on 9th December 2012, 6:16 pm

Messy, chaotic..are a few words that can describe this race. Due to some dreadful qualy (the worst ever,I guess I have a pretty bad setup, I can't work my way around it-or maybe because I used softs instead of supersofts) I used my teammate's set for the race. Pretty difficult adaptation,I guessed my way around it, and it was a little to understeery for my taste...
The first 4-5 laps were full of battles with Adrian (surprised to see him back there), Luft, Jure, Arnold to name a few...It was fun, we touched a bit here and there, but no hard feelings for either of us in the end...I had going offs, spins, all kinds of mistakes, instead of pit request I hit neutral, then speed limiter at about 290kph (I'm not familiar enough with the buttons on my wheel yet), so I had them all..given those I could be much more in front, but I had to be content with the result given the amount of mistakes and DNF's of others Smile



Race driving is like trying to thread a needle while running from a saber tooth tiger.

(watch replay 2:36) I don't know why Arnold crashed me, but he was 50 metres behind me, i take the corner normal, he turns into the corner and just crashs me Out. What was he thinking.
I am not sure if He tried to overtake me, because this was Stupid, and even if he failed the braking point, WHY, Does, he, turn, into, the, corner, this was ridiculous.
Than my car got damaged and i had no traction and crashed again! i leaved because i doN't continue this shit Race. and my suspension was also Damaged.

i was thinkin to overtake you.
But before that, i had 3 spins and spuns. little bit nervously at that time. Too much speed there. Not in purpouse. lost drive rythm and too angry.
Im sry.
If i get penalty i accept that. But i hope that admins watch evry thing before that too.

and little more.
This race is good example. We have over 20 drivers. and i think there is only 4 to 6 drivers who respect overtake rules. Its easy watch that. laps 21 to 24. good example. I am side of the opponent. Opponent close the door and turn in to me. That suck´s.
Rules are very simple. if there is car at side of you. you have let pase there at least one car?????????
And yes that is you Jure. Very Happy

Reading your comments seems like it was a very exciting race, that's cool Smile
I had a very good qualifying session. My laps from Q1 and Q2 were almost the same (it was a gap like several thousands of second between them) and they were only 0,1s slower than my personal best there. So I can say I sqeezed everything I got once again!

Start from the 5th grid was as always in this season which means very good Wink I passed Lau and found myself right behind Grisu. A while later he spun in T4 which was good for me Smile So only Soutie and Joe were in front of me. After a couple of laps I realized that I had no chances to keep their pace so I was doing everything to keep my eye on the guys who were behind.

Especially that my car was bad all the time. I was on a setup from Joe I received right before the race and I hadn't done any single lap to test it (ok maybe 1 lap during the warmup session). But I decided to take a full risk and as it turned out it was a good choice. Car was hard to drive, a lot of understeer - especially in my favorite part of the track T11 and 12 - I even went very wide once there and almost spun. Also it was very hard to drive through the tightest harpin. I was very, very careful but I made it.

3rd place is a great result for me and for the team. I regret Black had some problems because his pace was very good and we could've scored with two cars. Thanks to everyone who took a part especially to Soutie for his great victory and Joe (thx for the set) Smile See ya in China Wink

I thought I would never be competitive
but I saw that I can be
1:32.9 was not my best lap in bahrain, but I saw that Jack and Panzin were not a lot faster than me.
then started the race, a clean start, where I was just accelerating the empty spaces of each curve
no agglomeration. I would do the hard tires 17 laps, I was surprised to get to be in the sixteenth unless I'm mistaken, but an incident which I want to watch again before taking any action. I fell for penultimate,
even hard tires My race pace was good compared to those who were in front of me, I could follow them closely for a few laps, and not be last all the time (:
Cue in a dispute with if I'm not mistaken I gave a light touch on his rear wheel and did spin, he lost the position to me and two more cars
so I thought the least I could do was park my car on the side and let it take at least my position.
I was startled to realize G ir su making noise with his willians behind me, twice gave the overdrive. not to disrupt their race but not much good, I got scared seeing sexy broken beside the track. the race had a different air.
at that time I was taking my first single and back in the race. of soutie.
missing twelve laps put medium tires
I was being lapped by lau BlackFox and if I am not mistaken when lau, I was almost at the same rate them. something strange. I thought it was my new tires, but I think symptoms were already running out of brakes.
by times in the last laps looking by rearview saw one or another car going slight off the runway. I got confused.
but ultimately finished in twelfth, only took about 6 or 7 good drivers, and I was pleased with the great progress for me.
and all I had to do for this was
stay in the black

just remember, thanks for the setup sexy
