Sorry Matt, from practice and Qual I thought just hitting esc would get me out, so I was scrambling for my mouse and got out too late..... :( :blush:

Laszlo Csapo, I'm sorry I did not expect that so strongly deaccelerate the car. I locked the wheels and unfortunately I hit you. Once again, I am sorry.

No problem, it happens sometimes. It was a bit difficult to drive with injured rear left suspension. I braked there so early because the brakes and tyres are cold in the first 1-2 laps.

Good race. I had an interesting battle with Aitor.
The battle to the last round. In the last lap I got a chance to overtake, but
I could not hold 4 position.
See you next time :)

Q: P3 but miles behind Michal pole time. Still quite good time though especially on soft tires.

R: As always poor start for me, but didn't lost too many positions. Managed to survive first lap and started to catch the leaders but they were some 5-6 secs ahead already. After few laps i was able to pass Dominik and Marek for 2nd position but Michal was way out of reach in the lead. I was going with a good pace then but started to worry about fuel level. At the end i slowed down a little bit but it was not enough and i was short on fuel for one final lap. My mistake in calculations. P2 was so close. Maybe next time will have more fortune :)

Congratulations for podium finishers. Glad to see so much cars on the grid. See you next time in Brazil.

Q: P2
R: P3

Qual:
15-minutes-qualy gave me enough time to make a good lap. It was crowdy but luckily I didn't have any problems. Last lap I was even 0.3 s. faster after S2 but I made mistake or something gone wrong. Anyway, P2 was real surprise.

Race:
Michal Mazurek drove off, but I kept P2 until the longest straight came on lap 1. Dominik Satel overtook me but I did a small mistake on braking zone. Fortunately I didn't lose position even by going off on grass for while. Then I had a short "fight" with Mariusz Lebioda who overtook me in the same point as Dominik. I knew I'm slower as him so I got focused on possible P3 trying to keep his pace. We both caught Dominik finally and passed him. Then I had quiet race almost until the finish, when on penultimative lap I realised I will be out of fuel on the last lap. From that moment I started to save my fuel as much as it was possible, but had to let Dominik pass me, despite of approx. 5 s. gap between us. Luckily I had enough advantage over Aitor Lopez and Roman Koranda, so I delivered my car with only 0.1 L of fuel to the S-F line. Aaaarghh!

I'm happy with my pace, looking forward to the next events. On Buenos I executed my plan in 100%.

Qualify. P10
Was getting low 1:42 in practice but was more tactical with so many cars on track only managed a 1:44

Race. P21
Out first lap, made a terrible start and ran wide at first corner causing me to lose all places to last, I then collided with a crashed Scott Ring, I blame myself as I should have avoided him. First race in nearly 18 months, still got the skills ( on an empty track... lol) but very rusty actually racing in a pack, didn't get as much practice as I'd like with other drivers due to connection problems during the week. All sorted now though and looking forward to interlagos and hopefully a finish
