    I was right behind you when Fernando span you. I could just avoid being involved in that accident as well. My heart was pounding there.
    Other than that I had a very strong start and made up 4 or 5 positions in the first lap. Slipstream is sooo strong!

    My performance was dramatic after the pitstop:redface: But I had enough margin to Martin to retake my pace and finish my second podium ever in a row!:thumbsup:

    Thanks for hosting Graig!

    I will upload the replay tonight :roflmao:
    When i was racing you after you're pitstop my ping went to up to 70, so i trying to be cautious and not touch. You probably noticed i backed off into en rouge.
    Great racing:thumbsup:

    After missing out on pole by 0.17something (was faster in practise :mad:, but couldnt tie the sections together in qually), i started from p2.
    Had a good start and managed to slip into p1on the run to eau rouge after going side to side in t1,which was great :thumbsup:.

    Lost p1 again going into t3 where Yohann pulled a great move on me on the outside :notworthy:.
    After that i could always stay close to him but when i wanted to get even closer
    i started to make little mistakes,overdriving the car and loosing a few tenths every lap,
    resulting in a bigger gap :D.

    At the pitstop i took a little bit to much fuel onboard(just to be sure after last sundays 2 stop tragedy) , making the gap even bigger.:cry:

    With no pressure from behind i had a pretty lonely race after 5 or 6 laps.
    Watching the leader pull away ever so slidely every lap and myself greating a bigger gap
    to the drivers behind me.:sleep:

    funny thing was that i drove my fasted lap of the race in the last lap :).
    Right at the point were it really really didnt matter anymore hahaha.:poop:

    Just incase i dont catch a race anymore this year:
    happy holidays everyone and a happy new year :thumbsup:

    Thanks Craig for making these events possible :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    It could have been a worse comeback after more than a year out. Qualified reasonably, 7th I think in the end. Lost a few spots in the early dicing but made some back through the race. Had some great clean fights, side-by-side cornering, switchbacks and all the jazz. I have no idea who the guys were I was with most of the race in the midfield but was epic fun and very clean so thanks.

    A couple of hairy moments here and there but reasonably consistent though in the end ran out of fuel when running 5th with 2mins to go. Rusty mistake to make, running at Spa and forgetting you'll be lapping a second faster per lap with all the tow. I had over-fueled but not enough. Oh well, on to the next :)

    My highlight starting from the back was splitting the 2 cars fighting mid pack going through the fast double left hand turns half way around the track. Thanks for letting me be the meat in your sandwich lol
