Well that was an... interesting race to say the least. Started out 2nd to last, with my only hope being for a few postions on the first lap and try to survive until the end. Survived turns 1 and 2, moving up behind ztikes (my teammate) for 13th, I think. Turn 3 however I got turned in on by one of the Saubers (not sure who it was but no hard feelings, there were a lot people trying to go into a rather tight corner). Turned myself back around and was back down to last when Harvey crashed and caused an SC, which saved me from what would've been a very boring rest of the race.
After a couple of people pitted under the SC I was up to 12th-ish and gained a place or two after the restart until I had a comfortable gap to the Mercedes (Yarm, I think) in front. However I was being caught by ztikes and Crystal so pitted on lap 14 like Jeff told me to for a fresh pair of Inters, which in hindsight I probably didn't need just yet. Unfortunately though, as I pulled into my pit box, my game crashed and I was brought to my desktop and had time to post a comment in Glenn's chat before he reminded me that I might be able to get back in.
So, thinking that if I couldn't make it back into the race I would still be able to join the broadcast, I rejoined the session and was able to pick back up with my AI, who had only lost a couple of seconds thanks to the extra downforce I had asked to be put on during my stop. Getting back in I was able to go up to Rich mix and try and see if I could hold the gap to my teammate in front, and that if I couldn't I would just spectate with Glenn; however, after a few laps they all started coming into the pits and - to my disbelief - were mostly on slicks. I didn't think I would stand a chance if I pitted again so I decided to keep going as long as I could unless it started getting properly dry.
Luckily though, I started to catch right up to and carve through everyone on slicks and only a couple more laps, meaning I was back into the top 10 and points. Unluckily though, as I was coming through the pack, I hit a couple of people (it was Yarm for one time, possibly both) under braking, but again I'm not angry with any of you as you really seemed to be struggling and I didn't take that into account properly.
Anyway, continued cutting through the pack (with a red left wing by this point) on my Inters and followed behind Phil to catch Scintillic and I think ENiGMA or Karnak, into a completely unexpected 4th place (my best finish since my debut on PCARS!). All in all a weird race for sure, shame many of you didn't get to finish but well done to everyone nonetheless.
Won't be around next week for Spa as I'll probably be sitting in a ferry terminal on my way to Le Mans while you guys are racing, but I'll be sure to stop by Glenn's stream and wish you all well. Also, before I finish my rant (thanks if you made it this far by the way!), I'd like to give special thanks to Glenn for not jinxing me with Driver of the Day until after I crossed the line!
