I started College and it's really hard to get some free time but I'll try to race in Singapore.

Thomas, I owe you you a big apology for our contact approaching the Parabolica. Meant to hold my line, thought I was holding my line, but failed to do so and inched over toward you. Totally my fault. Sincere apologies, Thomas. I owe you one.
( attn. Chief Steward. Early in race, lap 2? )

Ruben, race wasn't quite the same without you there. Wishing your racing rig a swift recovery. And we missed Otto, too, but Janos showed up to sub (?) for him so that was good. And Juice was missing too. :cry: Craig is away, out on a road trip. Had a good back-and-forth battle with Deuce there for a few laps.
I've never thought of Monza as a particularly great track, but it's starting to grow on me! It's actually quite fun to race on, imo.

Hearty congrats to Sean! and Richie! on their podiums, and, of course, ole' whats-his-name 😁 on P1! Fine drive, Janos!

Probably called that here too ! :)

Nice choice. I thought about it, when I was in my college years. I didn't think I had the grades to get in a school that had a good program. Ended up taking a lot of math anyway, and got Computer Science.

A rather disappointing race, after all was said and done. I came up with a setup that I predicted would be too high DF compared to the rest of the drivers, but it turned out I was probably the lowest wings in the grid, at 25/45. It didn't feel that bad at all, once I got used to the braking. Due to my lack of practice, I wasn't fast, but only about 4 sec of the pole guys. I've been worse. The mess in the first lap allowed my to gain some spots. Early on, I was 5th and thought I was slowly gaining on 4th. Then my concentration laps and I started making mistakes on the track and in the pits. By the time I got a new wing, and served two speeding in the pit lane penalties, I was pretty much lapped by the field. I found I was faster than Adam, who must have damaged his car, in the straights but I could not pass him and get away fast enough to avoid the blue flag penalty. I passed him twice trying, before I gave up. The race was almost over and I parked it.
