replay groupB (95 min., so it includes around 24 min. of the quali also):
Quali went out quite satisfying for me, since I did my pb lap there (1:54.0 min.), that was half a second quicker then my pb laptime done so far in practice.
Race 1 was also quite good, finished 3rd at the end, -but I was not completely satisfied with the laptimes-. Many cars lost control or crashed, so I was on second position quite a few laps, some seconds behind Clive M. -but at the end Albert came back behind me and could pass me, because under his pressure I did a small mistake when entering the Pouhon (turn 10).. .
In race 2 I had a good start into the first lap, was on second pos. again after the straight, ..but then afterwards after the first following three corners I was sleeping (chillin' or somewhat) for a moment in this lap1 and simply totally forgot to brake when reaching the Rivage (turn 8 ) and crashed with quite high speed into the wall [I think my mind was already at another corner/place on the track... + maybe I was too surprised of being in second position ] . -That was really stupid / completely unnecassary.
After the crash the car was thrown back onto the middle of the track in the Rivage, for a short moment I tried to move the car, but it was too dangerous to drive this quite damaged thing back to pits. ..Unfortunately right afterwards as I was already with my fingers on the way to press ESC to clean the track someone hit my car in the rear.., 'sorry' for that*.
I came back after 5 laps of waiting in the pits and had a more or less boring race2 then, but I was trying to push the car and the tires to its limits, especially the last 8 laps or s.th. I did every
lap hotlapping with myself
, reaching several 1:56.1-x laptimes.
If I had not crashed myself in the first lap, I guess it could have been also a quite good race2 for me, because I had a setup which was good/stable in laptimes for also such long stints... .
*edit: I watched the replay of my 'selfcrash thingy' and gladly saw that F Chesi, who was the above mentioned one who hit my car after I crashed, did not take any damage..., so it was exceptional in this case luckyly
just a lag crash.. [my car was hit by him but not his car, so I'm happy that he and also noone else did take any damage after my crash !].
