I won't be able to participate in this race. That's too bad because I really enjoy this track.

I don't quite remember the last time i missed a race though...but i think it was during season 10th.

I'm looking forward to it, but I really struggle with Azerbaijan- it's very unforgiving, and I struggle a lot to maintain good times through sector 2.

That race was a series of blunders for me: neither of my qualifying laps were clean (I went too deep into T5 on both), which put me on the inside at the start, then I botched and tagged the inside of T1 and broke my wing on Jonathan (sorry), and made the grave error of staying out two laps like that only to pit onto softs in some gamble to one stop, and that would have worked if the castle section didn't remind me, as it laughed maniacally, that I should've kept my temps up during the VSC and claimed another wing. By the end I was coasting as the leaders crept closer out of a desire to not throw the dice on one extra lap. Thank you, Baku.

No worries, that incident didn't really affect my race. I got distracted for literally a millisecond on the last turn and crashed into the barriers on lap 15. I was 5th then, but I think 6th was closing the gap and I had to pit for new tires again.

I'm usually good at putting accidents behind me, but this one just really hurts - race start and crash under safety car - I was in the lead and about to make a pitstop for my final set of tires while still under the VSC - the VSC delta timer caught my eye at the worst possible moment:

Yeah, that was me behind you. I was surprised when you went out, but after you were I had like a 30s+ gap on both sides of me, so it was mostly just attrition.

Same shit happened to me this race, exact same turn. Lets call Baku and have them remove this turn :lol:
