Q: 15th, Going to assume my setup was horrible for the dry conditions, as I had pace for a top 5 or 6 in normal circumstances.

R: 9th, I spent most of the race in 15th-19th, the start was so slow, I ended up stupidly breaking the same wing on two occasions (In fairness the second time was just unavoidable, someone ahead broke theirs and it had a knock on effect) and didn't lose any real time in the process as it was just that slow of a train. Just a horrible first 9 laps, pitted for the wets at the end of 9 and went to the end. Caught and passed Remco very quickly, then had a battle with Paudie and BigC, passed both and eventually as the weather got better I was repassed by BigC, and also by JD and Jack as they were all on inters. Ended up getting 9th on penalties I think, it was 10th on track.

Pretty annoyed with myself as there was far more on offer based on my pace in the clean air, but after the first 9 laps I was very fortunate to get anything, so I will take 9th.

Great review AMS :)

for myself...

Qualified 18th, Finished 10th

A tough qualifying and an even tougher race. Used my strategy well in the tough wet weather conditions and managed to snatch a point on the final lap again. Couldn't have asked for more to be honest!

Q:P5, good quali lap considering i had a wet setup on.

R: P14 (I think), great start up to P3, had great battles with oogie, Greeny, Jack and maxi and was in P2 until the wets started to drop off in the drying conditions but on the last lap maxi lagged backwards into me,(no fault of his own), i burst my rear right and disconnected all at once hahaha. Barring that i feel like i really showed that i have pace for this division and had a really fun race up till then

Q: 1st. The Force India 1-2 finally :) left it to the last minute to get that lap in...

R: 4th
Perfect getaway from the line, sloppy into T1. Was defending decently from Greeny and Jack considering they are wet weather specialists. Had a moment coming out of T3 on lap 3 (hate that corner even in dry) and was down to p3. was keeping pace with them still but then cliffy made a brilliant move around the outside going in t3 in the next lap to put me to p4. Was defending into the next corner but Josh pushed me off track pretty much and that meant i lost 3 quick positions and was down to P8. From there on i found some pace on the inters. Heard Jeff say it was gonna be only 15 minutes of heavy rain so decided that another set of inters was the way to go. The second stint was probably the best ive driven in wet conditions with inters EVER. People kept having incidents (with Josh) which meant i was in 5th place for the final few laps and catching the wet runners ahead by a few seconds per sector. Unlucky from skeevan to get the puncture and d/c which handed me 4th.

Well done to the podium finishers. Will try and post highlights when I get home.

Here are my highlights, Good start lots of aggressive battles. Imo some a bit over the top but since I keep on non finishing I cba to put it in the stewards since it doesn't really resolve anything.

Quali: 4th, Race: 7th

Decent lap, adjusted setup slightly for the wet.

Taken out by Lordy so race was ruined from then, stuck behind very slow cars with children divebombing every corner... happy to get 7th in the end.

Qualifying 11th: Nailed it as usual.

Race 5th: Was too cautious trying to keep my nose clean & dropped a couple of places, was able to make my way back into the top 10 but after that it was a real struggle with a lack of pace even in these conditions. Both BigC & myself decided to risk a double intermediate stint during a period of full wet conditions since we basically had nothing to lose & although the transition back to intermediate conditions took longer than expected, 5th & 7th isn't too dreadful for us considering we were 13th & 14th at the end of lap 1.
