Q Remembered to run with Qtyres but still surprised
of result.

R Wheelspin too much on start and in little trouble
in going for 2nd gear and then allmost missed T1 totally
but tbh i was really scared ill get bumped. Usually you do
on this track but guess not at this level of drivers.
Early laps abit tricky with heavy car. Lost position but
then it started working and kept pressure on while trying
to go smooth as possible. Last 2 laps started to slip but
kept pace till rhe end.
With this grid....obviously super happy.

Q: P3
R: P5

Qual:
Good lap. 3rd on grid is more than I expected from ATS.

Race:
Moderate start but I kept good position after T1. Just after first turn I had a contact with Phil Brown, I was punted by Aitor Lopez too. Rear wing left side damaged but car was still competitive. Then almost entire race without any mistakes, good pace at all. Gaining the advantage lap by lap over Aitor I tried to catch Phil but last laps my ATS changed its balance and I delivered 5th place to the finish line. Anyway, strong performance being the best Level 1 car driver. Important 2 points added.

See you at Jarama, one of my favourite track - I hate Long Beach. :laugh:

Qualy: P7

Not great laps, with a perfect lap I would be in the battle to be in second row.

Race: P6

Good start gaining 2 places and I hit Marek's rear when he was fighting with Phil. Then Mariusz went off so I was P4 and first laps I could follow Marek and try to overtook him in Toyota turn in a risky move from my part giving him a little touch. With some front damage in the car I don't have the confidence to attack so my pace was slower than my practice pace so Marek went away and Mariusz and Michal caught me. Mariusz spun after pass me on main straight but he recovered and overtook me when a I had an scary moment when I hit with my right rear wheel the wall at turn 7 almost spinning. Then Michal overtook me some laps later on main straight and I was out of points zone but he hit the inside tire barrier at Cook's turn loosing a wheel, I was lucky to avoid him brushing the wall but I recover P6. After that I had the pace to stay 2-3 seconds ahead of Juan.

Happy taking one point with Merzario.

Q: 11
R: accident at 3rd lap.

Not an optimal qualification lap.
Hard start for not damage the car between much traffic and invisible stopped cars bach the turn of Pit entry at the 3rd lap.

Big crash with a lot of other cars, left front wheel strongly disallineated... other 42 minuts on this Track in these conditions are too much for me.... ESC key and arrivederci at Jarama
