|"What a race! Really enjoyed this one, especially the fight with Morand ofcourse. Very nice fight and 100% fair, surely one of the best fights in my simracing career. A little disappointing how the fight ended , but it is what it is. An amazing result for Precision, securing the title with a 1-2-3-4. Thanks to Peter and Ondrej for developing quite an awesome setup, see you in Monza!"|
|"I started P5 so that was reasonable for barely doing a qual lap in testing. Kept P5 pretty much but after some laps it got a bit messy in front of me, some drivers were pretty agressive, they hit each other and went off so I decided to pit early and get rid of that mess.|
That worked brilliantly so I was P2, had a bit of a battle with Bono but looks like he was just playing, as he moved away later. Lost quite a bit of time there so I was worried that Mikko or Jaakko on fresher tyres would catch me in the end, but pace was okay and I was able to finish in 2nd.
Quite a fun race."
|"Quali: 43.5 in Q1, 44.1 in Q2 for P6 on the grid.|
Average start, didn't lose any positions and managed to pass Dennis on the run to Les Combes.
First stint was quite hectic, a lot of tight battles going around. Managed to pass Jaakko on lap 10 or so and then I was right behind Bono & Morgan.
Made a mistake on about lap 15 when following Morgan in to T1, misjudged his entry and I climbed up on his rear wheel, losing a lot of momentum and a position to Stoffel.
Decided to pit after I saw Dennis pit behind me, rejoined behind him.
Got up to P3 after Morgan spun, after that it was a tough race because DDM was faster than me, but wasn't quite able to catch me in the remaining laps.
4th podium of the season and a decent gap to Fred & Atze in the championship, happy with the result.
Congrats to Bono & Denny for the other podium spots, nice day for Precision & Mak-Corp with 1, 2, 3 ,4."
|"I failed a bit in Q2. I should have done a pole lap with my medium tires, but then again I doubt my third place really changed anything. In the race everyone went past me immediately when they had even a slightest of slipstream. |
I was feeling reasonably confident while we approached pit stop window. I was only couple seconds behind the leader and I didn't have to hurry too much to keep up. For my disappointment I got hit badly on buss stop and spun around. I lost quite a lot of positions which proved to be nearly impossible to re-gain with my wing settings.
After the pit stop I rejoined the track on fifth place. I think I had pace to catch quite a lot, but I was badly stuck behind Dimitri De Matos. I could pass him, but he was always coming back to pass me after next straight.
I made my final attempt on final lap for final corner. I was quite far back while approaching the braking zone, but for my surprise it actually succeeded. Earlier in the race De Matos had been braking reasonably late and he didn't leave much to gain during braking zones. This time something was clearly different.
Anyway nice to score some proper points again. "
|"Q1: P3 with a 1.43.5 so i was happy to do q2 again.|
Q2: i drive a 1.44.2 so i started from p7 on the grid.
Race: On the first laps, i was scared by Stoffel as he brake really late on La Source so was happy to see it in times to avoid the contact. After that, Stoffel was able to pass me because of Slipstream. Lap 14 or 15, i don't remember well, after Dennis had small contact with Stoffel one lap before, i tried to pass but he pushed me on the grass so wasn't able to pass.
I decided to stop one lap after Dennis as i didn't want to be leapfrop by others because of a late pit. After Stoffel made his pit stop, i was able to pass him thanks to slipstream and a good top speed.
I tried to push to stay behind Mikko but i lost 2 secondes when Morand spun in Les combes so i wasn't able to catch him after that. Until the end of race, i had a nice fight with Jaakko but as my tyres were worn, he was able to pass me on last turn.
P5 at the end, with more luck p4 was possible. I'm happy, again i scored points in WC. A big thanks to the team, it was an honour today to replace Atze with the main Twister car and thanks to my t-mates for the help provided. "
|"Q1: I didn't set a good time, just a 44.0, which was 0,3 slower than my pb. I didn't make it to Q2, setting the 14th time on the grid.|
Race: I had an average start, won 1 position on first corner. Than there was quite a big accident in Les Combes, I could luckily avoid the crash, and was in P9. After this I just remained calm, and did not make any risky moves. I made an early pitstop, and was in P6 after all the pitstops, because some drivers made some mistakes.
I was driving at a little bit faster pace than the drivers in front, but couldn't come close enough to try to overtake, but I was very happy with the result. "
|"Was a fun race. Couldnt do much more from p19. Pace was good in the first stint, but was struggling a bit in the 2nd stint. Happy with p7!"|
|"Had some issues this week Medical wise so did not test at all, turned up with a 2 week old setup and didnt expect too much but we got 8th place and im extremley proud of the result after the issues..|
Im kind of frustrated not to be higher but the top speed was a little down !
Looking forward to the future, cheers for the racing guys"
|"Q1: Made a good clean lap, enough to take my into Q2 this time.|
Q2: My lap was clean so 8th place was predictable.
R: I lost 3 places in T1. I was really carefull not to hit anybody and been hitten ofcourse. Then in T2 after the big straight, some drivers wanted to win the race.
My car got damaged after that as a result I couldn't have the race pace that I normally had in test races I have done. In the last chicane at the end of lap 1 I tried to overtake Patel, I took the inside line but he closed the door by taking his normal racing line despite I was side by side with him. So I braked a lot more than usual, I spun and dropping back 16th place, ahead of those who crashed in lap 1.
After these incidents, my race was boring, trying to bring the car home.
Some drivers made mistakes so I moved up to 9th and I got 2 points.
Not happy at all once again.
Let's see if I can do a problem free race this year..."
|"Qualified 9th, and was 8th after turn 1 if I remember correctly. Then, at the braking zone for s2, 2 cars went off and then rejoined the track and the car was damaged. This put me a lap down, and also the damage prevented me from showing my proper prace, race was over basically. Should have been inside top 10 for sure."|
|"Q1: 11th, not happy|
R: 12th not happy, first lap crash with fredrik messed up all my race. In my mind Fredrik pass was littlebit optimistic.
nothing more to say, unlucky again.
Congrats to Bono!"
|Date:||2011-09-05 16:39:23||"Qualifying: I had no bigger expectations for qualifying since i had my focus in being more competetive in race.|
Race: I was pretty sure that maybe i had some changes to keep up with others. I was ready to get my best position so far but everything went wrong in first lap. I locked my tyre in turn one and spun out. Stupid mistake of-course After that my car was terrible to drive and caused few spins which lead to early pitstop. Well, these things happens and I'm constantly learning new things. Sorry for the team becouse I was just one position behind 1 point before my crash."
|"Q1 : i did a good lap in one try, enough to pass Q2 i test the Race tyres at the end to be ready in Q2|
Q2 : Great lap but i made mistake in last chicane and i lost time, enough to loose the pole position for 0.004s.... haha
Race : Starting 2nd i made a bad start, overtaken by Mikkonen and at the end of S1 patrick and I made contact. I know that it is the first lap and inside line was VERY bumpy.
So I am 4th at the end of the lap. I overtook Mikkonen because Precision car Had so much wings than me ( i think they had 23/23 in wings )
Patrick spun in front of me, i am 2nd and i'm faster than Bono Huis. ( 0.2s per lap )
Bono made a mistake at final chicane, i took the slipstream and i overtook him... A big sensation... I am FIRST !
And this was the beginning of a Epic battle during 10laps...
The lap 12 and 15 are the best epic lap of my career
Fair, rought, epic... I am respecting you Bono
When i pit, my pitbox was so late and near of the wall... When i leave the pit i have to brake a little... if i didn.t do that bono and me crashed....
So i am P3 and i want to overtake Hirrle, and i need to slow down after eau rouge, i was draging him to catch bono at the end of S1 and i wanted to pass Hirrle. I slow down a lot than normally and when i touched the bumpy section, the car didn't turn and i spun... ( look like the senna incident at monaco in end of 80s )
I want to overtake De matos after at chicane. But he hit me and made damages to my car... The car is very difficult to drive.
After it is my teammate who hit me with same effect like Hirrle...
And in the same lap, i catch rouault and made a bad move to me i was outside at blanchimont and push me into grass and i hit wall
I know that we must WS driver on track to have enough driver. But when he did that on WC he will not be penalized on WS... And this was a big attempt. Not the first time i have that."
|"Well, I had pedal issues from the start anyway which lost me a few KPH...|
I had a decent start and stayed out of trouble, then in the next lap I tried to pass Lee into Les Combes and he just stayed in front. I then slowly dropped off Lee and Yaannick. When Stephane caught me up I let him through up Kemmel straight because he was a lot faster than me. I then made a mistake at Puhon on around lap 8 and possibly brushed the wall - but if there was contact it was very slight.
I decided to pit on lap 10 and came out behind Parisis...I was now setting decent times but near the mid way point I realised my top speed was dropping and dropping. For like 2 laps it was at 295kph down into the bus stop...It was pointless to continue at a circuit like Spa when you loose 20k on the straight..
Ah well, but great job to Dimi to finish in P5, and Stephane for P7 from the back of the grid!"
|"Q1 was not very good for me. A little pressure in hands and I couldn't make it : 12th.|
Start was very tight. I touched the inside wall at the first turn but didn't get a lot damaged. I was not fast at all the first 10 laps, under the pressure of Lee Morris. I had a very good fight and good moments with him ! I lost quite a lot of time behind Martin Gosbee, but then I got my pace back. I could do good laps before my pit stop. Unfortunately I did a rookie mistake in the pits and stalled. Damn !
Thank you for the race, that was really exciting !"
|""Q1, 43,893 I think it was, PB lap but still 13th.|
R, Had a good start and made it up to 11th, and after a few retirements I was up to 9th and had pace which I was surprised by as I was keeping some time towards Duivelaar infront. But after setting my best lap which was just off Morands fastest lap at the time I had some lag in T1 that caused me to spin and slam the wall hardly to loose my front wheels.
To Simon, Not much action for me but I went side by side in Eau-Rouge lap 1. and also overtook Yannick Lapchin on the following straight.""
|"Expectations were a podium today|
And i made a huge noob error
I was way too agressive to try and keep up with Bono in sector 2 and,
my car needed a little more track i run onto the grass and hit the wall on the right.....
Lucky there was no 1 there
Qualify i knew i could get pole but 4th not too bad
In race good start and overtaking morand and Mikkonen Morand turned in while i was there we touched but no harm done
Then overtaking Mikkonen And try to keep up with Huis which seemed to work then a noob error
See ya at Monza
My race lasted 5 or 6 laps
Good start overtaking Mikkonen Morand lap 1 after eau rouge
Morand turned in while i was there it eas Hakkinen/Schumacher/Zonta 2000:)
Then lap 4 i think i passed Mikkonen for 2nd and haunting the Precision cars!!!!!wooooooo
Then i think lap 5 or 6 crashing after running wide start of sector 2:(
|"What an experience|
To begin FSR Manager problems after it was working earlier!!
Got some help in game chat from "RD", but nothing worked...
So i dont have the nessecary files to send, im sorry for the system not working??! Loosing connection like a lot others, dont know why there is so many problems??!
Anyway, qualify wasnt much to write about!!
But my race started out pretty good, fromP16 i think and went on P8, and with proper pace and amazing setup from Martin Christensen and Morgan Morand i was absolutely flying... Went on to get P3 which was good :)
Our teamspeak chrashed and we missed the pitstop strategy from the "magic man" - Soo wasnt good after that.. To bad, but we all learn from mistakes and look forward to next time im avaliable to join this league for a race :)
Driver of the race, without a doubt: Morgan Morand! I was behind him when he battle Huis. Its rare to see such high level fighting on track with such great respect and all.. So amazing to see, and i havent seen anyone do like that with Huis this year, so credits to Morgan for sure!
Thanks for a good race, and next will be better!
I dont hope my problems with ur system causes any penalty??!
After all i did what i was told by league crew, soo what else is possible...
|"Decided just before WC-Practice began i would try a WC race as i knew i had good pace and would be able to do better than yesterday in WS where i made too many mistakes because of wrong brake settings.|
Managed to improve the braking quite a bit before i joined in warmup and prevent lockup a lot and was feeling slightly faster but a lot more consistent with this.
Was careful at the start but in Les combes i saw there was carnage and i stepped on the brake to prevent running in to other drivers. Couldn't prevent the spin on the curb and then my engine died because i was slightly too late saving it.
Felt confident i could reach the points but maybe another time."
