First of all, sorry for the BMW who I punted in the beginning of the race, I started to brake on the grass therefore I couldn't control the car, it was fully my mistake and very sorry about it. :( And @Stephen Gibb thank you for the awesome race, so bad I did that stupid mistake. :( Cya again guys. :)

quite disappointed with unsafe rejoin of maclaren on lap 1, I used brakes to not wreck this mclaren but I've got shot from behind
no one waited, that's really disappointing - no rules

I suppose that's got to be me :)

It wasn't very enjoyable, from 6th I instantly found myself in 26th... :cry:
From there, it was all uphill but I managed to do a few daring passes into the top-of-the-hill hairpin of which I'm quite proud :)
I gained a couple more positions in the end due to mistakes I think.
Ended up 4th, just one shy of podium.

Enjoyed it! 10/10 would do it again.

Sorry to hear this. Sometimes there are misunderstandings about what really happened. If you have bad feelings, watch the replay, watch the incidents from a few angles and come to a conclusion.
Note down the drivers and PM them about what they did wrong in your opinion. If you feel like it's needed, put a staff member with you in the PMs.
Best to pick the race host or a Staffmember you know a bit better if you do this.

In most of the cases you get a friendly apology + explanation why it happened. And if not there's always the possibility of filing a report and getting the driver at fault suspended for 30 days :)

Hello Tim, I guess this message is for me but I have to check the replay because I'm not sure I hit you after breaking to avoid the disrespectful mclaren joining the road at a 90° angle.
If I hit you please accept my sincere apologies.

Also apologies to Javier Bernedo who hit me on last corner after I spun on the road. I waited for you but it seems you left the race.

And apologies to Rasmus to whom I slightely closed the door on T7 but we were still alives on the end :)

Cheers

edit: just watched the replay and indeed I punt you but didn't feel it at the moment and didn't notice you were in the grass as I was focus on the mc laren ahead.
Sincere apologies Tim


Finally I got connection issue with my VPN and got out of the server :cry:

No problem. I was just frustated.

I hit someone on the rolling start (I thought we were full throtle already, we weren´t), then, few laps later, I hit the same guy on a breaking zone. Fortunately, I think he didn´t lose time. My apologies to the blue McLarean (I don´t remember your name).

This track was too much for me.

That was me you hit at least at the beginning just before the green flag but thats fine. I think we all got surpised by this "false" start ;)
