Yeah, my mistake. I misremembered. How quickly we forget the car we ditched...

I'm sure you can.  I've softened the rear up a bit, just a general softening overall, and it works reasonably well.
Took a bit of work to get into the 21's and I know the track fairly well.    Except I have an ingrown hate for the last corner.  The rest is good.

I'm with Joe. There's hardly one corner I feel like I do consistently well.

It was an exciting round, shame about my inability to keep the car on the black bits.   :)

I didn't really have a competitive pace, but I still found myself in some action on my way to 11th. I feel very tentative entering and exiting corners, struggling with understeer, a turn in which feels too rapid, oversteer. It's one of those cars that I feel I have to nurse through a corner instead of drive through a corner.
 
I drove consistently enough though, except for losing it in a spin in the corkscrew, and another time I was closing in on ab156 who looked to be struggling on worn tyres, but when I braked approaching the corkscrew, the car just speared off to the right which blew my chances of catching him.
