Can't say much really except that this game is actual BS at times. Not gonna blame DNTX on this one since it looked like it was from the server. Let him through on the back straight since I knew he was faster than me, I still didn't wanna drop too much time since I had pitted Lap 1 after another incident which I will write about later.
So I let him through and we were going side by side, as soon as we were my front wheel to his rear wheel he turned into me, I was unlucky to hit a railing that blocked entry onto a blocked section of the track that the GP version doesn't use and since it's curved I was only a passenger at 250km/h and rammed into it and hit the railing on the other side of the road aswell.

As said though, I don't think this was DNTX's fault at all since I have seen similar videos to this with 2 POV's were they are both side by side but on someone elses screen they swerve to the left or right, so I think this is a pretty common bug or glitch or something along those lines that needs to get fixed for the next game.

Alright so lap 1 incident was also somewhat of BS. Alot went on and I was just following a car through turn 1, then I think a Sauber and Veoxic got tangled up on the side of the track, Veoxic was from my POV atleast out of control while the car came back in on track and DIDN'T ghost so i literally T-boned him since there wasn't much I could do, too late to brake and I also had cars behind me so I didn't wanna cause a massive pile-up and that resulted me in losing my front wing and had to race a whole lap to get that sorted.

Well first DNF of the season, really wasn't anyone's fault either which really makes the siuation worse. The thing I wanna know is why DNTX left the session even though he asked if he lagged and I said it was probably from the servers side, I got ignored via Steam messages after that and never got a proper answer since he went offline.. bloody great.

This was my first league race without anti-lock brakes, which I wont' be doing that again for a while at least (in the league).
Car in front of me had lag start which I luckily managed to avoid, but in turn 1 I lost complete control of the car verstappen-style and knocked out Veoxic who was next to me. A few laps later in a different turn I totally lost it again without provocation and Rain wasn't able to avoid me.
After that I decided to avoid any big fights and just ride it out for the most part... (I even lost control completely again and went on the grass in like last lap)

It's completely justified if I get any penalties, but I'm afraid that's not going to give Veoxic or Rain anything useful :(

Really good race. Safety car helped me quite a bit in gaining positions but on the 2nd safety car i got an orange frontwing because of the stupid slowing down of the SC. I really want to apologize to Enigma for hitting him, but the arrow on my screen pointed about SSE and because of that I thought he wasnt alongside me so I just turned into 130R with full force. Apparently on Enigma's screen he was alongside me. I'm really sorry.

Ztikes it must have been someone else you t-boned i believe. When Kip hit me I went spinning off to the left barriers and got stuck there. By the time I made it back to the track I was about 10 seconds behind everyone else already. Only other thing i can think of is that you maybe hit me while I was flying off to the left? Not sure.

Race was weird for me. Was taken out 3 times. Kip locked tires so wont blame him. It happens. Aiden lost control and I didn't dodge fast enough. Also happens. 3rd one I tried passing yarm in the S section because the slipstream glitch was in effect. As I was passing he ran wide so I went flying off the road trying to not hit him.

Both safety cars came out as I was going through 130R so I made up loads of time in the pits at least. Managed a 5th at the end. Think I could have had 4th. My pace was off the top 3 though so even though my race got ruined almost quite a few times I still ended up where I hoped I would.

Really hope these glitches and nonsense gets sorted in the next game. Can't wait to see how we all race with a proper working game

Phil. I don't really understand the reason why are you complaining. It is still a game and we should enjoy it. I have been already screwed up by you, in GB we agreed to do NOT make report against each other and after two days I got a penalty. I have just ignored these things it's still just a GAME. If Gimp wants he will let me pass, it's his choice. There is no rule about that, like in the real life.

Unlike my teammate, a pretty great race given I've been gone for two weeks and I had to restart my computer half way through!

Quali was a bit rubbish; couldn't get the spoon right and ended up starting 15th. Not too bad but was hoping for better since we did this track twice last season. Anyway, got to the race and finally managed to not jump start (in my last two races I had tried to switch to Rich mix on the grid which, for some reason, stops your clutch from being held down). So I got a pretty great start, passing two people off the line and getting a couple of places at the chaos in the first corner.

After that I followed Aiden up to DNTxRage and saw him get taken out. Not so sure what happened as I was concentrating on my gears at the time but it looked to me like DNT turned in on Aiden, although Aiden did seem to go for a very small gap. Pretty certain it wasn't intentional but I didn't have a massively clear view.

After that I had a fun battle with DNT for a few laps until we tangled a bit at the spoon and he disappeared (no idea what happened there, I apologise if I caused something). Soon after, the SC came out and I came in for my first stop. However after I got back out and caught up with the pack, my game decided to freeze so I had to restart it, meaning I dropped from my lovely 6th place down to 15th after I got back on.

So got back on the game way back in 15th and started slowly catching the guys in front once I realised I had enough fuel to run in mix 3 for a bit. Somehow though I managed to make my way up to 10th even though I only overtook one person and got into 9th after whizzing past ENiGMA when he was stuck at the pit entry.

Anyway, soon after that another SC came out and I pitted from 9th and dropped to 12th after pitting. Then saved up a ton of fuel during the SC and was able to run to the end in Rich, which was useful given the chaos after the restart. From said restart and the following few laps I moved up from 12th to 5th in a blur of crashes and overtakes I can't really remember. Had a battle for 5th in the last couple of laps but I knew I had 3 3sec penalties (almost entirely from going wide at places like T1 where don't gain the slightest bit of time...) so I wasn't going to lose my mind if I didn't get past, although I was still racing for the fun of it.

Made a move into T1 on the last lap but couldn't hold it for more than a few corners and nearly got passed by Veoxic into 130R but he didn't have a good enough run, although I did tell him I had penalties so not to worry. Ended up in 7th after the penalties were applied and overall had a good, fun race that's left me pumped for the finale in Brazil. Fingers crossed for 2008 style rain eh?

Okay so its probably my turn to say something...

Yes i let millix passed, i just tried to calm you down with some nonsense lies that makes you feel better or idk man. I didnt want you to quit or anything like that, but tell me, if its a real issue when someone's teammate is not in the championship fight so he lets his teammate go through so he still has a chance to win it? I dont really see the point of your crying on the forum that i let him pass, every normal driver and person would do what i did there. The only thing im sorry for is that i lied, i just wanted to make you calmer or idk what i even thought, it was so kiddy from my side i admit.
Btw, i dont want to blame for your personality or anything, everyone is differnet, but i mean why u even report someone? And its the championship contendor who you reported and i dont see the point of that either. Last season i could do a report after almost every race because always someone f****d me up but i didnt because thats racing and im not a kid. Why are you jealous for Millix doing 18 laps on a set of tires at malaysia, he has done it on a limit and you were complaining hows it possible. If you cant do that, that doesnt mean its impossible. Knowledge is power mate and pace is not the only thing you need in racing games. As i said i feel sorry that i lied, it was a bad move from me but i dont see your point complaining about normal things man. I remember when i missed my braking point in Monaco, i was really sorry that ive done it, it was a mistake and i ruined your race pretty much but i want to say, that after every my mistake i wanted to talk to you like just now and you are ignoring. Idk dont you want to race again in Brazil, you still have a high chance of winning the champs, but its your decision. it was a nice experience racing you, gl

Just as an outsider perspective, it's very common for teammates to change order when one is in title hunt and the other is not. It happens in my league all the time and there is absolutely no rule against doing that.

All in all it was a very successful race for me. This was the first time I was running with no Assists.During quali I mistimed my last run and had to bail it and ended up P17 (was hoping to get around P12-P14). The start was pretty good aswell. I tried to stay out of trouble and took the first lap quite easy and managed to avoid everyone, promoting me into P10. But not soon after the fast drivers caught up to me and I decided to let them past and use DRS and slipstream to just stay with them. The first Safty-Car came out and I decided to stay out. Was around P4-5. It was lap 13 and my pit-windows opened up (I was on mediums hoping for a one-stop). Right when I exited the Pit-Lane the second Safety-Car came out. Quite unlucky but that is how it is. After that nothing much happened. Faster cars overtook me and once again I tried to stick with them. On the last lap however I was battling with CrystalCaptcha. At 130R I understeered and ran wide forcing Crystal to go off track. (Apologies again). But due to my penalties Crystal ended up still ahead of me in P9 and I finished at P10. All in all good race everyone (against me) was clean and fair.

In the qualification, the cord fell out of the pedals and I was given a disqualification.
Started well, but broke the wing of the Sauber, who also left the collision in front.
On the 13th lap my car just flew into the air in front of McLaren. I hope I did not break anything Veoxic.
From the 20th lap, stuck for Manor, who seemed to have a broken wing and because of this three times crashed into him in the S-sections.
On the 23rd lap I apologize to Haas (ENIGMA) for a rough overtaking and that squeezed him out of the road.
On the 24th lap at the exit of the S-sections, I lost my car because of the grass and turned around, losing good glasses ... It's a shame ..
