Yeah, but again failed on strategy. Really pleased with second

I ran pout of tyre with 4 laps to go. Just hung on tbh, it was only a matter of time before you passed me mate  ;)  I should have ran the same strategy as the rest of you, had to pit on lap 7 for softs. Really happy with 4th though and had a good battle with lars.

F4 Race Calendar and Results / Re: [F4] Round 4: Canadian Grand Prix
Qualifying: 5th ( net 4th coz of blue being robbed )

Not real dry set up let alone a wet one. Just went with a dry one with softer anti roll and more wing. Car felt great on my first run with lots of fuel. I did 2 further runs and managed to get in top 5. Very happy with that and only .3 off pole.

Race: 1st

Got a great start and was pushing Hulk through the first few corners. I had Mr Rain ( grumps ) behind me al the way round the first lap. I decided to pit straight away for inters and once all the cars had pitted found myself in 2nd, not just that but closing the gap to gamefreaker. I had the most intense 10 laps of my F1 career trying to catch and not kill gamefreaker and holding off Warren who was all over the back of me.
Just watching Gamefreaker attempt to drive in those conditions with no assists, I tip my hat to you mate and although you didint finish you are my driver of the day.
Eventually Game just clipped the wall after the first sector and i just managed to squeeze mt car through. switched my fuel up but Game and Warren were right behind me. As the track dried out i started to pull away a little. Before my last stop i was 3 secs ahead. Once out of the pit on fresh US I was 5 secs ahead.
By this time Hulk had entered the fray, i really thought my days were numbered and it was only gonna be a matter of time before i was caught and passed. But once my tyres had heated up and a few laps on rich fuel i pulled away and held the gap to 7 secs, which was just enough as i was carrying 6secs of pens.

After the first 2 races i was questioning myself on whether i could compete in this league.  To have won is unbelievable. I appreciate it was a fluke and not likely to happen again, bit like Maldonado in Spain 2012,

Qualifying: 11th ( i think )

Got a good early lap in  but then buggered my next two runs. Had the pace for top 6

Race: 6th

Go an awful start again and dropped down only to gain some places due to others. Followed Merc for most of the first stint. Pitted for Softs lap 15. Found myself in 6th, following cheater. Had a couple of chances to drive in but thought better of it. Near the end i realised i wasnt gonna catch him so, as my team mate was right behind me, i let awesomedude through to see if he could overtake cheater.

Very happy with 6th, still a bit off the pace but not as bad as last week.

Well done top 3, especially freaker with his no assist drive. Unlucky to grumps, you drove well enough for a podium but hey, you stay in front in the title race!

1. Will you be racing?
Yeah

2. Were you happy with your result at the Chinese Grand Prix?

That's a hard one really. I drove as best as i could but was miles off the pace. I like China and usually go well. If im pants round their then god help me for the rest of the season

3. On a scale of 10, how do you rate your performance this season after the first 2 races?

2

4. Did your expectations change for the remaining 9 races or are they the same as they were at the start of the season?

Yeah, im just looking at finishing in front of some one, any one!

5. How many points will be the gap between Hamilton and Vettel at the end of the season?

45

Are you happy with the news that Daniil Kvyat will be racing in F1 in 2019?

Not really bothered

F4 Race Calendar and Results / Re: [F4] Round 2: Chinese Grand Prix
Qualifying: 10th

Didn't bother with a third run at the end. Happy with the way the car felt, could have finished higher up but knew what was going to happen

Race: 7th

Got a terrible start dropping down the field like a lead balloon. Car felt awful, tried changing the diff and brake bias but still found myself .2 sec lap slower every lap.
I was gonna try and go Softs to Ultra's, i knew i could go 18-19 laps on softs but just didnt fancy trying 10 on US. Tbh my car felt so much better on the mediums and managed to start catching the pack up near the end. There must have been some incidents on the last 2 laps as i found myself crossing the line in 9th, moving up the 7th due to others pens.

I have to be realistic this season though. I drove as hard as i could last night and it was only good enough for last. I'm using no assists except for racing line last night ( i turn it on for wet sessions and forgot to turn it off for the race ) so its gonna be a hard learning curve. Looking at the grid there is no one on it i think im faster than, or even as fast as. But im determined to carry on and try my best. I wont be switching assists back on and if i start to cause incidents or accidents i'll have to look at myself and see ifs its right for me to be in this league.

F4 Race Calendar and Results / Re: [F4] Round 12: Russian Grand Prix (05/08/2018) 8:00pm UK Time
Qualifying: 12th

Didnt get a lap in. Both times i got the stupid corner cut that invalidates the lap you're on plus the next one.

Race: 4th

I had good pace on the US but non on the SS.

This will be my last race of the season. I forgot to say im away on holiday. Its been an absolute pleasure racing with all you guys this season. Well done to Irun on the drivers title and again with grumps on the constructors. I've had some good battles with some of you and i look forward to racing again next season in the new game.

Cheers guys,
Jim

Congratulation Irun on your title win :36:  and on your win Grumps. I have to say i really enjoyed the race on Sunday. Some good battles and for a change I could see first place for most of the race  :10:

Qually:

Didn't bother, I knew i didnt have the pace to push top 6 so with only 12 of us i decided to start at the back on fresh rubber.

Race: 6th

Got a rubbish start which put me on the back foot. But due to other's misfortune i managed to get behind my old mate Venom. Soon after his incident at the last corner i found myself behind Simo. I got the feeling i had better tyres although we were on the same strategy, i just got into place to make a move but lost my DRS, the first time this has happened to me. After pitting on lap 22 i just followed Simo not really challenging more hoping he'd catch the pack up. It wasn't to be as we ran out of laps.
finishing 6th and only 6 sec behind the leader is a brilliant result for me, the best of a hard season. I'm not expecting much from the last two round but i'll be there, hopefully picking up a few points.
