Well it was a pretty sucky night for me to be honest.
The first race it was obvious those that should have had ballast didn't have enough. It was kind of fun and boring at the same time for me. Fun because I was doing my best to keep Bachulum behind - we were between 1 and 1.5 seconds apart almost the whole race. But it was also a little boring because the guys in front were lapping about 2 seconds per lap quicker so I had no hope.
The second race was a disaster. Firstly, my ballast was pumped up to 158 kg which made my setup not so great and despite last minute changes to suspension, toe and dampers, still was hit and miss.
I managed a really good lap in qual which put me 7th on the grid - there was only 3 tenths in it from p7 to p14!
Then after I'd gone to grid it became known that the race was for 19 laps instead of the 17 advised, so I wasn't fueled long enough to get away with 1 pit stop and knew from then on my race was done.
Then with the increased ballast + cold tyres + low track grip and not being to enthused about the whole thing I spun it coming out of luffield on the first lap.
Then I got going again and Grubbet spun in front of me and collected me (nothing to worry about, these things happen), then someone else spun in front of me and collected me (can't remember who), then a third spinner at T1 made me dive off to the outside of the track giving me a cut for good measure.
So I was trundling around without a front or rear wing needing another stop and getting lapped. But I carried on as I'm never a fan of those who throw in the towel and rage quit, so pushed as much as I could as there were still a few around me who hadn't had good races either.
Then when I was coming into the pits/leaving for the second time the session finished suddenly.
So not a good night, but these things test us to make the good times seem even better
