|"Very unexpected win. I just returned from vacation on Sunday afternoon so I really didn't have a lot of practise. Also I wasn't too happy with the setup and we didn't have enough time to adjust it. So P4 in qualifying was quite a nice result. In the race I was quite clumsy some times, making a lot of small errors but fortunately there was always a teammate infront so I could stay in the slipstream. I was saving boost for the final few laps and when I got infront I used the saved boost to make a gap. Obviously the fighting between Ronny and Jaakko helped me to make a gap so they couldn't get my slipstream anymore. Like I said a very unexpected win, but I don't think I was the fastest today, surely there were others who were faster and probably deserved the win more, I guess I was lucky."|
|"Start was ok, no big drama or damage. Following laps of first stint it seemed I was dropping away from the leading pack, but luckily I didn't drop too far. I won some time after first stop and could catch Ronny and importantly stay just about enough front of Greco, who had trouble on pit stop.|
Second place is a good result as main competitors were behind me."
|"Again a PB in q... was happy with it.|
Race started well and was quite boring because Bono and me stayed behind Greco for slipstream. After Pits i was in front and could manage to oull away a bit but not for long. Then came the last laps... P3 for Monza was good result i guess especialy because I trained not much... so Singapur can come.
|"nothing to say really, lost the race because of malfunctioning wheel, first one button gave up... so i had no pit limiter anymore, then, gears went crazy.. lost about 8/9 sec in overall... oh well this is how races go, too bad could have won, and that is rare this year!!"|
|"As Dennis, I had to race with a flu, meant I was pretty tired into the race already. Despite this, I managed to do pole position, being close to my qualify personal best, even though the qualify didn't go that smoothly, I kept having people coming out of the pits and not letting me go by before the 1st chicane or just before the apex. |
For the race, I did a rookie mistake into t1, the tyres locked too much and I didn't manage to turn at all, I had to miss it, then let some people pass. Then afterwards I couldn't keep my own practice pace at all, I kept pushing but always doing mistakes, and I got tired pretty early on the race. Before my 1st pitstop something which never happened in practice happened, I locked my outside tyre on the braking into turn 1 and lost the control of the car and hit the wall there ... I didn't remove the repair damage option and lost time on the pits again ... then until the end of the race I was saving the engine, specially saving for the last lap confrontation with Tali which didn't go as smoothly as expected, when my tyres lock at 260 kph when i'm not even braking 100% !!! In any case I managed to finish in front of him and that's good for the championship.
See you in Singapore."
|"This was a bit better, finishing behind my own team's cars (they are always fast somehow) and Twister-Racing drivers is hardly embarrassing, but neither something to jump in the air about.|
The start was good and I gained some ground, but got stuck early in some 3-way battle with Morris, Hirrle and Tali - luckily no damage. Later some battles took place betwen Lee, again quite fair I would say, but cost me some extra time due to his lag.
After a nifty pit stop I managed to get ahead of Hirrle who had some issues and from there on, when my car started working very well, there was unfortunately no more slipstream available. Managed to keep status quo to Marques and Tali but not catch them, hence finishing 7th for the 4th time this season. Some important points for DHR anyway."
|"Q: Nothing to be happy about have to improve my Q performance so I can unleash my full potential in races.|
R: Its realy crazy to start from midpack so I lost the touch with the leading group as no one wanted to settle into some proper train and also someone hit me from behined wich caused me to touch someone in front so I got double damage. After that me and Hirrle somehow got away from the group and could do some nice tandem until I pited.
After that I tried to catch Bruno wich I did 4 laps before the end of the race and decided to try and pass on final lap, I was alongside Bruno after parabolica and might have had momentum to pass him but Bruno decided to turn into me and that made my car slow down and my chance for overtaking him was gone.
Great job from the team again congrats for geting all the podioums. See you in Singapore"
start went OK, I could stay in 10th but then missed the brakingpoint completely into the 2nd chicane, result - last. The way through the field wasnt good and fast enough because everytime I tried to pass Patrick he attacked me again and both lost much time due to that, he simply didnt understand my intention at that point. He was the slower one but due to slipstream he always could stay behind and attack. After some battle action I decided to accept the position behind him because John-Eric was too far away at that point! I followed Patrick and behind me was Blair, in the final stages Blair started the attack and I needed to answer because I saw he passed Patrick, on the mainstraight I passed both of them and could gain a gap to Patrick because he and Blair had their rendevouz then, so finally I am happy with this 8th in the end, but without Patrick attacks I could surely pull him near to John-Eric."
|"Was hoping to be a bit quicker in qualifying, but was out of rythm when I joined the server. With that said, was surprised not many people were in the 1-20's. |
I didn't expect to be fast as could not find more time in the setup. Some other drivers dnf or had problems which helped me gain some places and finish in 9th place. It was a battle with De Witt, Poniatowski and Hirrle. I would rather be 8th out of the battle but with the lack of pace am happy with 9th place of course."
|"well not the best start to get on the server where my troubles started....|
so had to start from the back i did set a qualify lap but without the tool to avoid a DQ or whatsoever i started last
Great start and entry into turn 1 from last to 11th i think
Then it was a massacre between cars which i and some others where victim off
Not really 1 to blame but got hit in the back by tali racing incident
I am sorry for roualt i touched him when we were going 3 wide with i think Ponitowski
I had great battles with guys again and i am really happy that i overtook Hirrle on the last lap into Parabolica snatching the last point in the race!!!
|"Racing with a flu is not good, and it really was a bad race. Fighting with a somewhat slow Lee Morris meant losing connection to the leaders, and that was it. From there it only went backwards. I suffered some damage in the early stages on the rear of the car but I wasn't aware of it, so my pitstop was 9 instead of 3 seconds. Being too fast in the pitlane meant a drive thru penalty, and that was it. P11.|
I hate the track, next race should be a lot better."
|"Finally i finished a race. I'm very bored about this engine.....last 15 laps with boost 1 to save it, i think it's absurd. On the race nothing to say, it was fun in the first half with some battles and so bored in the second half when the gap from others was too much and was much more fun listen Pat's shout on TS :)."|
|"Qual: P12 with 21.3, pretty much what I expected.|
Took a careful start and was battling for P10 on lap 4 or 5. I'm not sure who it was but when I went for a pass on the start-finishline they moved over on me and I lost my FW.
After that I was about 35 seconds behind the people in front and just tried to do my maximum. I didn't have anyone to give me a slipstream so I had to save a lot of engine during the whole race basicly.
I thought I had a chance to catch the group battling for the final points when my G25 double-downshifted in to Lesmo 1, rearend spun away and the engine broke when I hit the barriers.

|"Great Qualifying... was suprised when i joined that no one was n the 20's and my best was a 20.7 so i knew i could realy go for pole..|
Unfortunatly due to getting in late from work i had no time to test so i could not realy max my lap.. managed p5 which was good !
Race had a good start was looking for 4th at beginning when i got hit by hirrle 2 times in 2 laps which ruined my suspension and car pulled to right so i lost all my pace, unfortunatly i think hirrle was also hit by tali on one occasion which caused him to hit me.. so race ruined again after a good start and to top it all off the lagg got worse every lap in race... then bang disconnected.. i looked at broadcast and lagg can be seen on there too so its high time someone did smething about this lagg as it is BEYOND a joke now..
I will get a line test done beforet he next race to make 100 % sure but i did a quick test after race and get grade b and 1 on speedtest."
|"Thanks Pedro for giving me the chance to do this race in WC. |
Qualify was poor, with a 1.21.5 I was way off my PB. Probably to do with the fact I was too nervous.
I knew my race pace was good tho. And it showed I could follow the guys in front quite well. Had a fight with De Wit. Which was good, but we lost too much time compared to the guys in front, because of the fight.
Then in lap 10 he pushed me in the grass, right when I was braking. So I spun, and that was it! "
