No worries on my end man. That was a ton of fun! I pit early hoping you would lose more time with the lmp2's than I would with the slower GTE's but that didn't work out for me... Good race and excited for round 2!Mixed feelings yesterday....as me and my teammates are focused on Sebring 12h, i didnt had too many practice time for Nurb, so i had low expectations
Turns out that i had a good pace, very similar to Don and Michael, and after practice and my pole, i was really confident that i could win that, knowing of course that i would have to battle a lot with the boys...wont be easy, but a lot of personal mistakes took me out of the battle
First i hitted an lmp2 on lap 2 wich cost me the P1....i didnt expected the lmp2 dive in that turn, specially because we had a large straight right ahead...anyway the mistake is mine...i assume that
After a few laps trying to chase Don and avoid loosing time to the lmp2's...i had a slow down at the final chicane...and that slow down hurts...its almost 3s....
Went back behind EJ, who did an amazing job defending the position...i got a little ansious and did some risky moves, wich is not my style...so im sorry EJ to scary u at some moments
After pits went back in P3 but didnt have time to chase Michael, so P3 with bonus points for pole and best lap, but with the feeling that frustation that my mistakes could cost a even better result
About the short format: it provides more aggressiveness from the drivers because of the time...1 hour provides a more strategic race...now its different...i believe for who watch its better. We just had to be careful with the level of aggressiveness...I saw some risky movements from lmp2's trying to overtake us without loose time....and of course...we (GTE) trying to overtake each other did some risky moves too....so we need to balance that for the next races
Now looking forward to Sebring...a track where a lot of drivers are fast so i expect a great race
Thanks. I figured it wasnt intentional though unfortunate. overall, I had a rough start with a first lap slowdown (my own fault) that took forever to serve, then the spin In 1. It happens. Looking forward to Sebring and hoping for a better outcome.
