Q 13th

Not much to say. On the 1 and only attempt ran into traffic in 3rd sector

R 1st

Starting from the back row of the grid, the plan was to come last in the turn 2 and keep it clean, pick couple positions if people spin or make contact. After hairpin, I were already up to 9th or 10th, good start. Lost a bit of time while trying to get past hague, but after I got into clear air, car felt really good and Slowly startrd catching drivers ahead. Couple more incidents, overtakes and 2-stoppers pitting and I saw leading group seconds up the road. Got some confidence as I were pretty much the fastest guy doing the 1 stop, mediums felt great and when the leaders pitted, I were only 1,8 seconds behind P2. Tried to put in some solid laps on those old mediums, and managed to come out in front of Hulk(?) Fairly quick I catched Lars and didnt have problems overtaking him. Couple laps later caught Grumpy and succesfully overtook him. I felt like I could pull away in the next few laps, but lost the back end at the exit of the hairpin and Grumpy got back in to the drs zone. for the rest of the race, grumpy were able to try a move 3-4 times in to the hairpin, but my braking were on point and he couldnt get past there.

After qualy, more than happy with the result and now back in the title race. Great, fair racing all around once again, thanks to everyone for that! Gongratz to podium guys and see you all next week!

You were defending perfectly into that hairpin. You always knew where to place the car. I kept trying to do a switchback from the outside, as I knew you'd defend the inside line, but you always got the braking spot on and always placed the car in the right place in the exit to prevent me from completing the move..... at least I managed a switchback move on Hulk there earlier on in the race lol.

Great job on the win mate and great driving. Enjoyed it.
