    Cars will race, some car will win, some other cars won't win.

    Well, the sensible ones will be. Can't say EVERY driver is more cautious in wet conditions.

    will be lapped sooner then because the difference between alines and mortals is markedly bigger in rain (maybe they come from an aquatic habitat in the first place :) )

    Good luck to everyone tonight! I will be behind the mic (and safety car) so I am sorry if I mix some names and teams. I have been way off on this so far this season, haha :D

    Firstly great battle in the lead, was great to watch even just from the hud timings! Well done top finishers
    We had a great pace most of the race, mike was flying away and even Ben from our club was closing in fast. The rain came in from time to time but that didnt affect much, just gave a bit of excitement. Our 2 stop strategy might have been a bit less effective or unusual, but we all could achive great pace thanks to the pace of supersofts and master setups crafted by our masterminds, but Mike had a serious shunt to him and i did some mistakes aswell.
    I personally lost a total of around 35seconds to small mistakes like not finding my pit confirm button, unschedualed pit
    stops made me overuse tyres on 2 of 3 stints and had lots to spare on middle one but had no fuel to continue. I also had
    unneccesary pace drops when thinking about our tactic too much and i always got that back chicane wrong. Could have been
    more rain, perhaps that could have gotten me up lol. But my end position is totally suitable for the amount of practice i did so i got what i deserved. Still a long and exciting way to go :p
