    I apologise to @Nicolas Delamare

    On the opening lap I was following him quite closely and was surprised when somehow got a much better drive out of T4, the slightest of taps and he was spun.

    I waited after T5 for him to re-pass and chased him.

    It seems his car had some damage as it slid sideways into T10-11 chicane slowing unexpectedly and I collided with him again:(.

    Somehow Nicolas managed to keep racing and I chased him again (giving him plenty of room at entry to T10-11 chicane. I finally got a move into T3 under brakes. It was down the inside and I managed to get track position, but was gathering up the car and Nicolas contacted my rear. Just in case it was my fault I slowed and allowed him past again:cry:.

    I guess Nicolas will be a bit sick of seeing my car.
    All in all a disgraceful showing.


    Sorry.

    Lap 15: I'm really sorry to @Artyom Aslamazyan for the contact at turn2 which send you into the oversteer moment. I hoped there was no contact, but I looked at the replay and saw that I didn't leave enough room for your entire car there ;(

    We had a similar situation a couple of laps before where we came through together and I had to take the following corner from the complete inside with a guaranteed sideways slide over the next curb. I wanted to avoid this position before the turn, but as the consequence turned in too much.

    Sorry man, won't happen again.

    Of course @David O'Reilly and after that contact my rear-left suspension was yellow and I was unable to be fast on fast left-handed corner.
    I really didn't expect that contact at T4, didn't know somebody was on my left ! Anyway tough race for for both of us, I don't care ! :laugh:

    No incidents to report :thumbsup:

    Martin it may be an idea to restart your PC and Modem/Router before race's, I always have done to make sure everythigns refreshed, If its happening with diffrent people (I saw Tim and Sean fine no lag) then its most likely your end.

    I'm checking the server's replay. When exactly was this? In T1 first lap? How many cars have you set to be shown in graphics options? Do you use auto detail framerate?

    @Peter Decker the first disappearance of tim was
    442.449 reappeared 451.399
    Disappeared 456.409
    Next time I saw Tim was his tag name in the pit when I passed
    This isn't a complaint its just that this has happend before with other drivers causing them to think that I've hit them or far to close etc
    Many thanks
