Q - 1st

As near to perfect as I could get it. By far my best qualifying performance in quite some time. Just love those sort of conditions. My 1st run, I was just tip-toeing around trying to get a feel for where the grip was. It didn't feel particularly quick, but it ended up being quickest by 7 tenths with a 41.7. As it turned out, this would have been enough for pole.
        For my 2nd run on fresh ultras, it didn't get off to a good start. I messed up turns 1 and 2, so was already 4 tenths down in sector 1. Somehow, I managed to start gaining time and ended up improving by 4 tenths and set a 41.3. At this point, I was 1.1 seconds ahead of 2nd.
      Decided to go for another run on fresh ultras at the end. This lap started off so much better. I was actually 6 tenths up on my time at points in the lap, so was on for an incredible 40.7, but I lost time at the hairpin and the final corner, so only improved by 3 tenths for a 41.0, which was still a crazy 9 tenths ahead of my teammate in 2nd.

Race - 7th (6th on track)

Not much to say, other than pitstops screwed me over. My 3rd stop my own fault for forgetting to select the right tyres. Crazy conditions that weren't in the forecast. The forecast in qually actually said it would be a completely dry race. It's good that forecasts can now be wrong though. Makes it less predictable.
The only positive to come from this race is that I made plenty of incredible overtakes in this race. Not something I'm usually known for. My highlight was definitely the double overtake through the middle of Frome and Wocko at the hairpin on the last lap.
I definitely had pace for the win, so disappointed with the result.
Congrats to Tom on your victory. Impressive, spot on strategy that I wish I'd copied.

Q - 3rd

Really off the pace from P1, but 3rd is great non the less. I had a few drivers block my first run at T1 which gave me some extra wear - but in the end it didnt matter.

R - 1st.

Best race in PSGL so far? I think so.. Strategy worked to perfection, I figured others might work out what I was doing.. I didnt worry about S or M runners and the US would of heated up quicker and gave slightly more girp, but the rain came down more and I went for inters. And that was it.

I ran in either low or medium ERS, I turned it off a few laps from the end so I could absolutely smash out the final laps, although I did have binning it in the back of my mind.

But yeah, fantastic race and really happy that a different strategy can now pay off if you get it right.

Also ths stream was fantastic and there was some brilliant racing down the field.

1. Will you be racing?
Yup.

2. Were you happy with your result at the Australian Grand Prix?
No. Being put into a wall before even finishing the second lap was crap. The decision to not complete my run on the ultras really did throw my entire race under the bus.

3. Do you like Shanghai International Circuit?
Aye. It usually provides some great racing.

4. Should F1 introduce 3-car teams to make sure talented drivers don't lose their seats to Pay Drivers?
As a few people have said, I'd prefer to have more teams. Three drivers per team would probably end up with the actual field splitting into different classes. You'd need a minor miracle to pick up points if you're not in the top teams.

5. What are your current 3 favourite songs to listen to?
The Neighbourhood - The Beach
Tame Impala - Let It Happen
Arcade Fire - We Exist

Fairly decent mix of songs there
