    the two ghosts and the real must have been pretty much overlapped but slightly blurred, like reading something without my glasses

    It would be a pretty funny sight.
    I turned my ghost off because it was getting too distracting. I put lewis 0.1 second in front of me. Handy for really following his lines

    I heard him talk about this in an interview this year with respect to one of the new F1 tracks. He said something about working out the lines, braking markers and turn in points so that you use as little steering as possible.

    Happy new year everyone!

    I literally finished this lap 1 minute before the countdown. My wife was not impressed with how long it took me to get from my cockpit to the living room so we could celebrate the new year together. I was already screaming and celebrating to be honest haha.

    Here is the replay of the lap. I nailed the important corners but felt like I was out of control on top of the mountain and going down. Somehow I managed to hold on and I increased my lead on Lewis. I think Brands Hatch or Suzuka will be my next target.

    I finally conquered Suzuka! This was up there with Big Willow in regards to difficulty for myself. Found it so hard to nail a full clean lap. I lost count how many laps I put in here. Quite a few sessions over the last week trying to get him.

    This lap came from nowhere. I had a pretty good sector through the Esses but blew it going into corner 9 after degner curve. Held on at the hairpin and again lost a bit of time at spoon. Hamilton was at this stage 0.170 up until we hit 130R. I nailed it, clawed him in and absolutely threaded the needle into final chicane. The best I've ever taken the corners since I've started the suzuka challenge. We dragged to the finish line and I had an unlikely win. Pumped!

    My tip is you want to lift just the slightest so you can stay on the right side of the track going into the hairpin. Brake hard just before the end of the right side racing strip/curb. Turn your car in and set yourself up so you can power out as quickly/early as you can without much steering input. This will give you good strong run into spoon.

    Brands Hatch has been ticked off the list. I thought this was going to be one of the toughest ones to complete going by how close everyones times are to Hamilton's but I ended up getting up to speed pretty quickly compared to the other tracks so far. I found you need a good trail brake technique and a light touch on the brakes for this track

    Double Whammy tonight boys! Firstly the Nurbs. Finally managed to get Ham with a dubious final chicane. Still legal, but pushing it. My one saving grace was that corner lol.



    Then I decided to have a crack at Interlagos. Got up to speed pretty quickly and after 45minutes I managed to get Hanilton's exact same time! This is 2nd time I've managed to get his exact same time, the previous being Big Willow. What are the odds?
