Feel free to discuss the race in this thread, as long as it is within the forum rules.
Was quite in rage when the crash between us happened. For me you clearly hit me and therefore I spun. But looking at the replay you didn't hit me still my car gets a bump. So it happened because of lagg which can happen in an international league like the fsr. Still you could have made it easier indeed . But I made errors myself too so I know that I can blame myself...Bit of a mess for me today really.
The car also felt really floaty for some reason, plus after being away I was just not in the zone.
When I moved from my big install to my lite install (for FSR) it just felt weird. I had 1:17.5 in practice and missed Pre Q with a time of 1:19.6. Dont know where the 2 sec went.
Got a decent enough start when others had bumps and was P17 after about 1 lap (from P24). I think I got some damage from a lagging car as i felt a bump and just couldnt get any pace, it was also terrible into the chicane in S2. . While struggling with driving I neglected to select options so ran primes twice. Even at the end just never got any pace. Lapped by P13 and lapped twice by the leaders. One to forget.
I want to apologise to Jacques Wengler.
He came up to lap me and I was cursing myself for taking the wrong tyre again and his car was lagging badly for me, quite a blur. In fact I think I took damage from it. It took me too long to register that he was lapping me and by then we were both in the braking zone for the S2 chicane. Jacques spun ahead of me, there was no contact from me but I could/should have made it easier for him.
At least I guess I didnt crash so thats something.
See you at the next one.
Remember China? Let's not talk about "making it easier".Was quite in rage when the crash between us happened. For me you clearly hit me and therefore I spun.

It's a common issue with RF2. I lost FFB too (G27 too) after crash with lagged car on Lap 2, since this happens often I have button bound to "Reset FFB", which solves these problems.That's very interesting because my teammate had a very similar issue where he lost ffb (G27 too) :/ Unlucky man
the mirrors are used to see behind,you are sideways,in my mirror you're not there when I come out of the pits, was a little contact, I do not think you've had major damage. You were slower in the early laps and you were after,just watch the race to understand it. I did not know exactly where you were just look from my cockpit, Instead of making these videos and create unnecessary controversy, simply make a protest.Had a very average qualifying but knew i had the pace to get into the top 5. Had a great start of the line and into 5th before Claudio once again hits me and almost spins me around. Got damage but was still drivable and able to keep up with the leaders. Second stint when Valeriano came out the pits he turned into me and gave me even more damage, In the end that caused me to lap around 1 second a lap slower than normal. Struggling with the car with the damage i was trying my best to stay in the top 10.
Lap 36 my Logitech G27 lost all control / no ffb or input and my car just went straight into the barrier and lost a wheel. Unfortunate race for me but pace was there once again. Some people need to learn to be more cautious and use their mirrors, backmarkers as well.
Onwards to Austria
Well deserved man.
Finally a top 10 finish, I hope my logs are fine this time. That did not came very easily, struggled a lot in Q with understeer, only P11. Decided to start on primes, and what a **** rubber they are on this track, I was very slow. But only for 2 laps because in the second chicane lag car appeared just in front and sent me airborne. I thought it is gameover, yet my car miraculously survived without any damage, only with flatspotted tires. Pitted for SS and had to do two 20 laps stints on them, not easy. In the end I just did, though Cannata and Cook came very close to overtaking me on fresh tires in the end. Difficult race, gonna relax now a little bit watching WC
And this not the first timeNicodem Wisniewski
You are a good driver, but you do not give you the right to ruin, my race and other, at the first corner? What makes you think that you could to overtake all the drivers in the first corner? Each of us can be crashes like a maniac and make a karambol. What's amazing is that you are, after the turn and terrible overturning, has remained intact and continued to drive?????
Ok. At the next race be careful and remember, "You can not win in the first corner because the race lasts over 40 laps"
