It was unfortunate race. I was chasing Philipp, who was faster on the straights but I was able to catch him in the corners. How I get to the highest top speed overall is mystery for me. In the middle of the race was an accident. I slowed down as much as possible without locking my brakes, I thought I would made it, but Philipp´s hit to Aitor send Aitor right infront of me and that was it. I went to the pit, stayed there for two laps and finish the race dead last.

I would say after my overtaking manoeuvre you benefited from my slipstream. ;)
But I´m curious what areas of your set up did you change to reduce your topspeed?

Just like Aitor I have also to accepting responsibility for my choice to stay on the ideal line. But after watching the replay a couple of times, at the beginning it really seemed that Aitor is rolling away from ideal line into the gravel. But as soon as I got closer he stopped his car and tried to move away. I had not expected that...
But I agree with Marek, it was a race incident and you cannot blame anybody. Stuff like this happens.
At least you should see the bright side, Marek and I likely scored no points (I don´t know the exact regulations, in the most cases you have to finish 75% of the race distance to get point or at least the full amount) but you did. Better than nothing.

But still, you were slowly disappearing even in slipstream. Maybe I lift of really late in the fast left turn. Don´t know and really don´t know what I have done with my setup. :)

Sure, no hard feelings for Aitor. Of course I was furious in that moment, who would not be. But its gone, everything is ok.

Philipp scored 3 points, Murat 2, Marek (me) - 1 point. At least 50% distance should be covered and all drivers above me did at least 10 laps (including me). :laugh:

Just wait for official results.

It was a quiet race for me except for the melee of the first lap in front of me, wich involved several cars. My car was heavy damaged but I decided not to pit, finishing last man standing in 4th.

I just want to remember some drivers the Gentleman's rules and race etiquette, because there are some guys racing like there is no tomorrow, just in case someone forgot it.

1. Play fair and don't ruin somebody's game.
3. Remember, first 1-2 laps tires and brakes and cold. Be careful on first corner especially.
