    Believe it or not, but in the weeks after discountinuing racing -neither any online nor any offline driving- my stomach (and so on) got really 'fat' -no joke- Very Happy, never have had so much weight before like now ShockedWink. So, I think I'll better keep up the racing, because it is/gives some training (almost a sport) to that and else areas.

    Exciting races tonight. -Sometimes there seem to be a bad magnet, letting Mario and me almost certainly getting into trouble / to close sometimes Wink, once again an incident in lap 1 of race 1. I tried a risky manouver overtaking two cars at once on the straight, me being between the two. Somwhere at the apex of the staight-'corner' Mario's car got to close to mine.., I couldn't drive more close to the wall to let more space between us, simply because the other car was there on the inside line, maybe the car at the outside (Mario) did not calculated that fact in. However, it was more or less a race incident... . Generally leaving more space, can prevent such kind of sudden situations.

    Really nice races yesterday. Pretty eventful first lap: I started in 5th, we had a clean start, I managed to get a good speed out of Senna-S, and overtaking Luca in the straight taking his slip stream. In front of us Vincent and Giorgio were also doing the same. We arrived a the corner at the end of the straight with 5 cars in a matter of few meters! Something went wrong to Vincent (was there any touch?), and somehow he got wide, just as Gek (in front) and Giorgio. I managed to stick to the inside and pass them all. Looking in the mirrors I saw that the 2 Get Out Of The Way collided, and Luca got involed as well. I did a small mistake at the 2nd lap and I both Fulvio and Danilo overtook me. From there on I tried to crack on, and I managed to pass Danilo again, and get closer to Fulvio, keeping his pace till the end of the race. Pretty happy about my unexpected 2nd place!

    Race 2, very exciting as well. I've been pretty cautious in the first lap, and I lost some positions. I found myself battling with Giorgio and Maarten, we had a lot of fun in the last straight getting, with everyone trying to get the other's slip stream. We found ourself on the finish line all at the same time in a nice 3 wide. I had a great smile on my face, being confident that I had the right drivers around me to get away from that in a smooth and correct way. And that was exactly what happened. Everyone left just enough room to the other, and when went down to the Senna-s without issues...except me losing some time (again) going a bit too much on the kerb Wink
    Such a pity Maarten was thrown out of race few laps after by Danilo, going to close to him in the straight to get his slip stream and touching him.
    After that also a very nice and lengthy battle with Danilo for the 4th place. After some laps I managed to overake him, and get to end keeping him behind.

    Overall a very nice event for me, getting a 2nd and 4th, and, most importantly, having a lot of fun.
    See you at Donington!

    Mixed feelings for me..on the positive side I was very competitive at Interlagos and saved my second overall front row Grid on the start with only 0.054 seconds behind Gek, although I changed some suspension settings in the last 5 minutes because I was struggling a bit Smile

    Race 1: There was no contact before but I really dont know why or how this happened but I startet the race with complete broke suspension...after beeing in the pit I went to the grid and didnt move until the green lights but somehow (maybe a bug?) my complete suspension was broken... First I thought it was my steering wheel and calibrated it really fast before T1 with quick calibration on my wheel and by pressing CTRL on the keyboard, but none of this worked and I went into T1, lucky there were no contacts because I was dancing a bit with the car...on the straight after the Senna-S i tried the same again but it didnt work out..
    But there I still didnt knew how broke my suspension was...and beeing second before T4 and Luca and Giorgio behind me and Gek in front I tried to brake as late as possible to avoid contact but I had to completely go off the brake pedal becaus I lost the car a bit and didnt want to spin before T4, so sorry again to Gek for the little contact, I hope and I also dont think I broke something at his car but I hope you realise the contact was of my suspension and not because I thought I could brake late.
    Well that was the point I realised I cant race with the suspension but before I could do anything I found myself on the curb and completely lost control over the car, where Giorgio and Luca were behind me Sad

    I got hit in the Left Rear but later I went to the pits and it repaired every Suspension part even Right Front... confused

    So sorry again to everyone involved.

    Race 2: That was a bit better, great start, T4 Luca and Giorgio overtook me, but I got past them very early and from there I wanted to attack Gek who was 2 seconds in front of me, I had a really good pace, every lap except for one 51.0 were 50.X and almost the same times like Gek.
    Well except for two laps where Gek took out the hammer and did 2x an astonoshing lap of 49.8 (without slipstream, etc). Grats again to Gek who showed us again he deserved this victory , but at least I hope I never gave him the feeling he could relax and make mistakes lol!
