Team Mercedes is open. I think the second HAAS is open. I'm sure a few more.

So, find a seat that fits well.

Just a note: I changed the race temp to 25c from the 29c that is the default, earlier this week. I think Janos has his start low and get higher as the race progresses. Just trying to figure out why the track feels different to the guys that runs both leagues.

Sean,

Green, eh ? I normally send out the AI to grip it up. I saw someone had already done that. However, if the grip is not enough, THIS track and some predefined rubber levels I can choose for real road. I will ask on the server tonight what everyone wants.

Hello
Con grates to all

Quall
Just sucked :oops:

Race
No better :roll: Got a good start moved over to the right did not see anyone behind me.
Ended up getting hit and got in to the grass and in to the wall. Front wing and front and rear suspension damage but wheel was stuck to.the.left car just.would not turn with any confidence so I bailed.

I know I keep saying this and,just be a broken record.
I just don't get this mod no matter what I do , in can not get a.good feeling with this car.
I can not get a sence of speed from it I feel like the car is going slower then it is.
If that makes any sence.
I am at wits end don't know what else to do :x

Cu in Monoco
Ruben
I Might not be fast but I am ahead of you :-)

Until Sunday, I saw no rubber on the track. After Sunday, there you could see the rubber. Just an observation. It seemed every day since Friday it was getting a second faster.

Track: I was worried the track needed more rubber. I could only get within 1 sec of the SRH time during practice Sunday night. It seemed better Monday. But could have been just me.

Qualy: Great. my setup was fast for a lap. Pole position.

Race: Not bad. I had a good start. No one near at turn one so no issues. After a few laps in the lead a white car started gaining on me. I thought it was Otto but it was Sean. Around lap 6 he went for the move on the front straight and passed me. I made a few mistake after that trying to catch back up and tapped a barrier. Light blue right front. But managed to bring the car home and did not loose the brakes. I believe I had a chance at more pace but I was really worried about those brakes. Ended with 2.40 left

Congrats to all that finished. And to the winner Otto Great Job. Nice comeback for Sean in second place, good to cya back.

Qual: Not bad 3rd.

Race: Decent start battled Dave into turn 1 and from then I pulled a way slightly to catch Adam up the road for the lead. Got past Adam and was cruising and got caught looking at car entering the pits in front of me, instead of the looking at the line to get under 80kph. Speeding penalty. I ran 4 hard laps on tires as Thursday a speeding penalty going into the pits was a stop and go, so I figured stop and go again, but it was a drive thru. I didn't notice that until I pitted after pounding out 4 laps on new softs, and pitted to only have my pit stop take 4 seconds instead of 13 for the stop and go. I looked up and saw drive thru. :roll: So back again in the pits driving Miss Daisy down pit lane, and back out into 4th. Just kept it clean and wound up 2nd pretty far behind Otto. I might have been able to give him a race if it wasn't for my mistakes. Oh well... Got 2nd subbing for Haynie.

My race actually went well considering I was racing mid pack. None of it would of been possible had Sean Higgins not sent me a setup right at the end of practice. Wow, the car was suddenly so much better! (Thanks Sean!)

After a good start and first stint, the race settled down to fighting for 7th with Bill W. And it was a long fight all the way to the end of race. Even after pit stops. For the first time, I could race, get into position to have DRS, and make competitive overtakes. It was cool cause I had something to fight for most of the race. Even tho I lost 7th to Bill, it was good fun. (long grueling race)

Congrats Bill

Two incidents at the start are under review.
