Qualifying: 11th
I was rather desperate for someone to knock me down from 10th, so thank you matt for setting your lap late.

Race: 8th
Started on mediums and made absolutely sure I wouldn't be involved in any incidents, including when TUSZMUSZ decided to use FTRL_Panda as a brake on lap one. Ended up staying in 11th until a few people had incidents, and I was actually leading the race when I pitted (although to be fair, I'd be doing something wrong if that wasn't the case considering the strategy). Came out just ahead of Panda in 10th, then made a double overtake on Louzi and jraybay to get into 8th place. Tried to close down groenijsbeer and TUSZMUSZ but just couldn't manage it in the end. Still, happy with 8th to start what will be a very tough season for me.

Qualifying - P14

Unfortunately I entered this race with the flu. Expectations weren't high. The lap was going well until a big oversteer moment which bounced me out of the top 10.

Race: P10

Still decided to start on the softs even though we were deep in the field. End of life tire wear felt fine. Didn't get a warmup lap cause Dinno was trying to be my cars shadow for some reason. A few cars around me were on mediums so if I could make a few overtakes at the start, that would've helped, but I fell to last place after skyzii  T-boned me turn 2. From then on it was a bunch of pointless squabbling and divebombs at the back. Not a whole lot that happened today. Happy to have finished the race in one piece.

Q:10th
Interesting feelings as I was 2nd and 1 minute later I was 10th. But after all I was pleased with my pace.
Race: 6th
I was shocked that I finished 6th after my disaster season in F2 where I didn't even finish. The start of the race was so hard, and due to the fact that I can't practice properly,  I don't feel the car YET. That's why I messed the breaking points up in the beginning with heavy car. I didn't want to lose my wing so I dive-bombed to Panda in order to avoid, so it wasn't on purpose, so stop saying this, thank you. I had hard moments because I didn't know how the car was working in these conditions. I had nice battles with few people. Overall I was so happy to score points as around 1 year ago I did it last time. I'll have 2 exams in this week and this Sunday will be race day, so it'll be nice ending, hopefully.
