Yeah I could handle a season in these for sure, have to find a heap of pace to keep up with you though Kcender, my one lap that got close was an out of control fluke through the final 2 chicanes
lol - i only realised on the last race that 100% boost would last the race - thats where the speed was

pretty mega race had kcender and jeremy at the start all over my ass for the whole race pretty much lol, was interesting the cars were very different i ran low aero and kcender must of had high because he was all over me in the turns but i managed to hold him off down the straight, had a lot of good side by side stuff, felt bad when he went off down the fast left hander after the long straight, i was on the inside of the turn so had to brake earlier than normal to get the car stable on the tighter line and i think that caught kcender out. But he came back and then the last lap we had a good run again right down to the last turn, i got a little tap that sent me sideways on the exit so kcender got a small run on me and we were looking to go side by side, but somehow came together over the bump entering the gp circuit, i assume his car skipped out over it as we were fairly close, mine stayed straight i felt, i was trying to squeeze him to the wall so he would go the long way around lol but not to be would have been a photo finish.
Best race I can remember having - I was literally having to look between your wing and the top wishbones to see the corners I was that far under you gearbox for most of the race awesome race. I have 7f 5r wings in an attempt to minimise scrub and save the tires but it meant if i wasnt under your rear wing under the gantry onto the straight then you would get about 10 car lengths on me.
The rest of the race makes up for the last 50 metres - lets just blame the Germans for building the pit wall there
If anyone has a replay i can steal for viewing pleasure and personal James Hunt make believe sessions that would also be magic

so close! Gambled on the SS strat which was 5 - 10 seconds slower than that H S strat by numbers but gave better open track position in the first stint - Phil came out ater his late stop only 7 seconds in front and I started to gain for a few laps but then his newer tyres came good and he pulled a few seconds on me
also - did anyone else need 170+ litres to make the race or the DFV in the Lotus rather thirsty ?

well that all went terribly wrong
some windows update rendered the soundcard for the shakers unknown to the system which made the car feel weird (first world problems i know) - then the shifter's hall sensor for 2nd gear went a bit off meaning the 1st to 2nd shift at 3 points on track was a lottery at best (muich yellow gearbox and missed shifts were seen
finally i miscalculated how far the hards would run and committed to a HH strat when H S would have been viable with less top up fuel, faster finish and less time in the pits
also the wind was blowing the wrong direction, sun was in my eyes and didnt wear lucky socks + any other excuses

lol - all good I take a really narrow entry there (if im thinking of the right pass) that would probably usually be considered off line so i reckon you were in the right place - no harm done

Enjoyed the race, not quite as lonely as the Ferrari test. And it certainly paid to be accurate and deliberate with the gear changes, no flat shifting!
Nah all good - i thought that was my fault - after missing out on the Lotus I rushed a blind guess of a set on the Mclaren and ran too soft and heavy so I was laying chassis under braking so I had no control at that point
Car was odd - was evil laps 1 - 5 then came good on mid fuel then became evil again toward the end - seems like it has rubbish geometry that is super sensitive to travel and ride height requiring over stiff suspension to control it which isnt the way to go on the old things - saved by a long no stop strategy
Dead keen on these over the v10s though

Thought it was a good race including distance and wear / fuel
My math suggested a one stop Hard Hard was possible and assuming no errors could be up to 2.1 seconds faster over the entire race than a Med Med Med 2 stop but the Med Med Med gave a lighter car on average and was more competitive in traffic or groups. Given Marty's party mode of a qualli lap I decided the med med med was best to make sure i could fight at the start.
Def multiple strategy possible for the race - was good - these races will be won on strategy as much as outright pace i reckon
