    Just clarification if we are starting at 8.20 or 8.50 tonight. Last week we started at 8.20 despite not being a 100% race.

    8:20, it’s gone back to normal ever since @Zachery packed it in to pack in other things I’m presuming...:p

    Well that was bull$hit. Getting my fastest lap impeded in qualifying. Getting destroyed by the McLaren t1 and that wasn't even the worst of it.
    Second restart had my strategy changed from a 2 stop SS S SS to a 1 stop M SS like wtf. And to add insult to injury as the start lights disappeared so did the sound of the game. Do you know how hard it is driving a racing game with zero sound it's HELL. I wasn't sure if it was my controller which was low on battery but once unplugged and added sound to tv i still had nothing :mad:. I was still trying to do on the go repairs and one slight loss of concentration sent me spinning at 300kph+. So glad everyone missed me but i'll admit i picked a $hit corner to take my eyes off the screen briefly. With the likely 25 second penalty for being on the wrong compound tyre and the lag combined with frustration i called it a night.
    This game seriously knows how to do my head in at times.

    I didn’t mind my race overall. Was in a “battle” with natmanscoop for what seemed the whole race. (And by battle I mean I had a 20 second lead on him and he ran me down), he got past me quite late in the race and whilst pushing hard to keep up/run him down, I binned it, which was disappointing.

    Sorry @Motors560 pretty sure that was me ruining your quali lap, I was trying to stay out of everyone's way .
    I found my feet in the 2nd half of the race battling with @Jurassic Mark , was my first time:
    - In the Ferrari,
    - With Low downforce,
    - On Mediums,
    - Online in F1 2017!

    Better to come from me next week.

    Glad you enjoyed it mate :)

    I’m sad I threw away a certain win, the game did literally all it could to stop me and it darn well succeeded.

    I was so focused on trying to resolve the tyre issues I wasn’t watching where I was going, and thus I started on dirty tyres!

    Astonishingly I was up to 2nd from 7th by lap 4 when Keeden spun and more or less gifted me the win. That was until I made the same error a few laps later but I lost a lot more time. Once he stopped a lap later than me it was all over. It was another race where I bottled it, had the pace for the win but let it slip through my fingertips. As did captain useless teammate who was going great guns until he crashed somehow on lap 3 and threw away a possible podium. I knew I should have taken a wrench to his knees last weekend after taking me and Seth down the most disappointing road in East Geelong! :roflmao:

    I might protest against natmanscoop. Seriously had that one Fatman scoop song in my head all day and kept singing it during the race. Probably the reason I crashed hahaha
