I pretty much only did hotlapping to practice for this event, but i knew that it would be hard to be quicker than Fulvio here. Looked very close between Mr. Orsetti and me in qualy, so i had to keep pushing. I pushed a little bit too hard, and couldn't get my pb of 26,3. 0,4 slower..but it got me 2nd on the grid. Pretty happy with that, although i knew my starts were bad with this car (pretty much every car though
Had a TERRIBLE start!! First had wheelspin off the line, then lifted to get rid of it, and i dropped so low in the revs that i couldnt get away. Very thankful to Mario (i think) for taking it easy in T1, and letting me have 3rd. I was taking it easy behind Fulvio and Luca in the first few laps, but i noticed i could gain some time on Luca in the middle sector, so i decided to try to pass him. I made it stick (don't quite remember where) and was in 2nd. Still taking it easy as i had no idea how long my tyres would last with my driving style, i was trying to be smooth on corner entry, and on the exits (heavy right foot). I noticed i was keeping up with Fulvio, and my plan was to wait until the pitstops, and to start pushing when he went in for his stop, as i thought i had more fuel than him, so could go longer and pass him with the pitstops. After about 10 laps i wasn't so sure about that anymore, so started to push a little harder to try and pass Fulvio. After a few laps of terrifying fighting with him, i managed to get past him, and stay in front. After that it was managing the tyres, and trying not to make any mistakes.
Alot of fun again, thanks to all the backmarkers for making my life easy, and congrats to the whole REDLINE team for their top 6 finishes!
See you all next race! (sorry for the novel again
