    Might not be there tonight, car handling is very inconsistent, not sure what's wrong. Turn 1 is just plain stupid.
    I don't really like Tilke-heim anyway, we would have been better off with the old layout. :D

    Done a 1:21.917 - probably the first ever lap of Tilkeheim that I've actually enjoyed. Felt pretty fast.
    Stadium is awesome - with the positive camber on each of the corners, the car's turn in is amazing.

    Q1: Got nabbed right at the end by Mills, started 2nd.
    R1: Got past him with a daring move into turn 1. Built up a 10 or so second gap to Gillard behind (not sure what happened to Mills) and from then on it was a calm, controlled drive to the flag. I WON!!!! I savoured the victory lap, you should have seen the amount of fist pumping, with a Vettel finger at the end...
    First RD victory felt absolutely amazing, and I didn't have dominant pace like in Road America, so that made it even sweeter.
    Q2: 2nd again
    R2: Got Ivan off the start, although he pulled over to the inside very sharply to prevent me from diving up the inside at turn 1, (seriously, who overtakes there? :p hint: I do) and then I was lapping similar pace to him until the end when a few cockups put him within a second or two. Penultimate lap, I'd (fairly) fought off one manoeuvre into the hairpin, but coming out we collided and both lost some bits. I pulled over to the inside, puzzled as to how he was going to overtake into a flat-out right hander, so I was hoping to say to him "No, don't try it", but I pulled over too much. I coasted to victory without a front wing, but I didn't want any congrats as I didn't deserve the win. I may have been able to hold him off but I ended up taking him out. Truly sorry mate, that could have been a great battle.
    Overall, ecstatic for a double victory, especially the first, but not proud of the second. And to think, a few hours ago I was considering not racing at all. :p
    Thanks to Lee, RD, and everyone who raced, with my sincerest apologies to Ivan.
