Yeah I lost 0,015 seconds in qualifying to Michael and could not get past him even though I was almost the whole race inside 1 second of him. Cannot be disappointed though, it was great to battle the whole race and finally finish third here.

What happened Scott? Did you run wide in T3/T4?

Yeah I heard that but he was in the sand when I passed him. I guess he might have gone there to get out of the way, dunno. Thats why I was asking. =)

Apparently I remembered my fuel numbers wrong because I put in 1 gallon too little at my pit stop Crying or Very sad I got the '5 laps of fuel left' message with almost 6 laps to go and have to go into super-conserve mode. I was concentrating too much on the fuel though and completely messed up my braking into T3. I barely kept Teppo behind me after that, ran out of gas coming onto the straight but somehow had enough speed to just beat him to the line. Crappy way to end what had been a great race up to the point.

I miscalculate too, i was sure after pitstop that i have take too much fuel, but ended for 0,6 lap to go after the finish.

Ok. I just talked to Teppo (I know him IRL) and he said that he thought that the race was already over (1 lap too early). Smile Bad luck for many people today, but like they say: Other mans misfortune is other ones good fortune. Wink

Yeah it's a part of a racing. You can do everything just perfect but one little misfortune can take all the effort away. Correct me if I'm wrong but i think that on the other tracks grid wasn't so close like here. It looks like is quite easy to do a hot lap, but to have a good race is just another story .

Yeah, I was really surprised at how close qualifying was. Most of the race was fairly easy for me, couldn't quite keep up with Nico so I was basically just trying to make sure I didn't make any stupid mistakes to let Istvan by.

One q. I test FW31 and the car has tendency to snap all of the sudden. Does it mean it's suspension is to soft or could it be any other issue with the setup ?

I don't know, I'd need more information and/or data from you to say for certain. Mainly, when does this occur? Braking, turn-in, mid-corner, turn-out? The better you can describe what is happening, the easier I can suggest a solution.

Just FYI, the attached is the sort of feedback you could give me which would make it much easier for me to help. I'm not really the greatest at explaining what the car is doing myself, but the more information you can give will certainly help. I'll also post a blank version elsewhere, even if it's something you guys want to just use on your own.

Yeah well done Cyril!

And yes I'm pleased with my result too. I was really close to the driver in front of me (again) but I find it really difficult to overtake here unless I'm much faster or the other one makes a mistake (and neither of these drivers made any big mistakes). Frustrating to run behind someone the whole race twice in a row. Smile

But I see now that it is really important to qualify well with these cars.

Yeah at this track is impossible to overtake. I struggle yesterday to overtake more than 1sec per lap slower car. Maybe even drag is to small.
