    Whether I need to change tyres is my decision and based on my testing. Whether other people need to change tyres is up to them. People have very different tyre wear.

    When it was discussed that his pit stop was longer at LeMans I assumed as he had pitted a lap earlier than most others that he had used more fuel than the rest of us and needed to put more in.

    I've held back on commenting here to gather my thoughts and write this correctly.
    Without repeating what others have said, I mirror what @Hatfield , @T F Eccles @emmo46 and everyone else has said about you being welcomed into the community here at Rooz.
    With the PSN team chat not telling you that tyres aren't needed, well while it wasn't spelt out, the forum is also collaborative. You could have asked the question yourself and it would have been answered 1 of 2 ways.
    No tyre change needed, or No tyre change needed for me.
    As Emmo mentioned everyone drives differently.
    Emmo drives conservatively and others not so much. It is up to you to read the OP, perform your own testing and if unsure you ask questions.
    The PSN team chat or even this forum is for you to use and consume how you wish.
    I also scrolled through the entire PSN chat and there were several mentions of tyres for track testing.

    In the end, how you wish to proceed is up to you.

    On the 9th of October at 3:15 in the afternoon on the team PSN chat I posted that at 1X tyre wear you wont need to change tyres.

    All through the team chat there are tips like when is best to change up and what gears to use to save time and fuel.

    On the 12th of October I stated that I did a race distance on one set of tyres at Laguna. I didn't assume that that was what everyone needed to do.

    I plan to kick both of yas. My plans haven't been coming to fruition lately so no real need to worry. I have been off track 13 times in 6 races so not expecting much this weekend.

    I suspect the adios meant he'd had enough of us and was riding off into the sunset. Very sad end to it all. I would love to see him stick around if he could be happy here.

    The first 10 minutes of race one were the happiest for me since my honeymoon. Car 46 was looking good there for a while. In hindsight my decision to push and try and open out the lead was the fatal mistake, especially over a faster driver. I had hoped @Matthyus would keep @Peter P occupied while I got away but pushed a little too hard. I should have settled down, held my lines, kept my elbows out and ignored what was happening behind me.. The review shows what a great track this is.
    Race 2 was hectic and I got wrong footed earlier on but recovered for an eventual third place which I am pleased with. There was no catching Peter and I tried my utmost. It was a majestic run through the field by him.
    I noticed the replay doesn't show johnnos manouver at the final turn during race 2.
