My After action report :
Qualifying went surprisingly well for me – considering that I hadn't practiced on wets. I qualified at P4. Kept P3 for most of the quali, but Veoxic jumped me at the end. I tried to get a last lap, but I ran out of time.
Also this glorious moment :
Start of the race went great for me as I managed to jump veoxic for P3. Rest of the first part of the race I was basically trying to keep up with Millix and PhilFPS, and when I did keep up with them, I couldn't really do anything, except to save fuel. I also didn't want to get my nose chopped off. I was thinking that the only way I would be able to get past them was the undercut, so I went in for mediums at lap 8. The undercut worked greatly, as I was able to jump Phil by quite a margin. (looking at the replay, it appears that Phil got some lagspikes and lost a lot of time in the pits) The undercut just about worked on Millix aswell, and he was about 2 seconds behind me.
Most of the midrace was me trying to keep a gap to Millix. Sometimes, I'd lose some time, and sometimes I'd gain some time. Not alot happened., but I kept the gap at around 1.5-2 seconds. This continued until the 20TH lap, as Veoxic – who started on mediums – had passed both Phil and Millix, and was closing in on me quickly. On the 21st lap at the straight I was barely able to hold on to P1. Probably only kept it thanks to a backmarker who was trying to get out of the way at the straight.
At the last lap me and Veoxic had a couple of incidents. This is basically my view : At the straight Veoxic was behind me, and I moved to the right to defend, but I think he had moved slightly before me, so he had to move further to the right and go to the grass. He then tried to brake, but outbroke himself (probably because he had grass on his tyres) and there was contact between me and him. I lost a bit of front wing (yellow), and got pushed off the track. I rejoined the track and Veoxic turned into me and I went into the wall and lost my front wing completley. Regarding the first incident, I think I was to blame, and got a yellow wing for my troubles, but the second incident I feel that Veoxic was to blame. Dunno if I'll make a stewards report for the second incident, but then again – Veoxic would probably have a case for the first incident, so I dunno.
All in all, not the result I wanted. I felt p1 was really on the table, but p4 is better than nothing.
