Nice event, Orsetti and Steverink finished at just 0.2 sec. gap after 36 laps ! (close finish)
Good qualy and second race stint for me, did a pb again in qualy like at donington as well,
but then very bad luck for me + Clive after just the first 2 laps or so, (with a light damage at the car, because of a slight contact at the start) as I lost the car uphill to corkscrew on the brakes
and another car (Clive) crashed into mine, he was not able too see me standing there as he was coming up the hill, since it happened 'behind' the hill. I thought of pushing maybe 2% more
on the braking zone at that moment to maybe close up to the two cars in front and that was enough to lose the rear on slightly to hard braking for a moment.
This place is a bit similar to turn 4 at Donigton (at the end of uphill), you need some more brake balance to the front with those cars at such palces to be more save on brakes regarding the rear.
After ESC back to pits I was driving not so seriously anymore at the first stint of the race, since I thought I'm last anyway, so I pushed here and there and got off track sometimes, but at the second stint after
the regular pit my car felt great in the first laps (I balanced it very well), just as the tires began to lose some grip, it was not possible to push anymore at certain corners -t2, t4 (left), t8 (left, after corkscrew))- (some aliens can do, but for me mostly it does not work with worn tires).
Due to the fact that others did some mistakes too and crashed their cars, I gained some positions back anyway.
My start was not perfect -but not totally bad anyway-, I got into a little bit too low RPM at 1st gear, because of some a little bit too much lifting of the clutch.
..see you next time.. !
