I had a go thismorning in the redbull. Got a 1:28.7 primes in qually. Fastest lap in the race (50% ) was a 1:29.0. I'm nopt sure how the williams is going to fair until I go online later. tbh I've spent most of my time on Adu Dhabi getting ready for the F1 race tomorrow.

I'll be up for a practise if anyone is online this afternoon  :)

Qualifying. 3rd

Went out on primes and set a time of 1:29.0. Really happy with that plus had 95% of my tyres left for the race

Race. Winner

I knew I had good pace but also knew it would be though at the start with Sh33py and webcam on options. I'm not sure what happened on the first lap one second I was right up webcam's bumper the next be vanished and was .9 sec behind me. I chased down sh33py who must have had tyre wear issues. He lost it abit on the hairpin on lap 3 and went side by side with him into the last complex. We touched and I waited for him to rejoin the track before overtaking him on the start finish straight. I had a little battle with webcam soon after but from then on I never saw another car. I pitted at the end of lap 10 for another set of primes and ran most of the second stint on low fuel mix.

I pitted again at the end of lap 21 for options and was 6 sec ahead of webcam. I put the fuel up to max and set the fastest lap of the race soon after with a 1:27.8 which was 2sec faster than the next time, really suprised by that tbh. I pulled away from webcam and sh33py by 2 sec's a lap and finished 20 sec infront of second.

I'm really happy with this result, a good solid race with a good stable set up. Except for the first 5 laps I didn't have to push at all really I just found a good rhythm and stuck to it.

Qualli - 1st , happy with my pole lap 1.28. 049 i think so close to breaking into the 27s, think i could of made it on my last run but everyone retired so gave up and pitted to save my tyres.

Race - 3rd got a good start and was going well till lap 3 when i lost all grip and betrayer was soon all over the back of me, we had a bit of a moment when he hit me as you can see on his video but he let me go ahead so no damage done, came to the DRS zone and he just flew by me folowed by webcam who dived up the inside i cut back across never moved of the racing line and i had the second corner but he hit me from the side and went ahead of me!!! not much of a bump and no damage to the car but if i bump somone like this i let them back thru, thought he might do but no !!! can i do this ??? i thought if there was contact you have to give the place back like betrayer did the lap before !!, i'm not looking for pens dished out and it probably would not have made a difference to the result, just want to know how much if any contact is alowed on a pass as me and webcam have a few big races comming up in gp2 and i dont want to be giving places back if i dont need to  !! anyway i pitted came out behind we swaped about a few times pitted again he passed me in the pit lane because my lollypop man would not let me go !!  the last 8 laps or so i was less than a second behind but could not get by and thats how it finished.

Malaysia my worst track in qwaly i just hoped for the best and got 2nd which i was very pleased with.Had a prity good start but moved down to 3rd when betrayer overtook me.Had a better race than expected and finished 2nd.

I have read what sh33py has sayed and i know what hes saying but i just followed betrayer and had betrayers slipstream and i was ahead in the braking zone so it was my corner and as the legends Ayrton Senna sayed If you no longer go for a gap that exist then you are no longer a racing driver.There was a huge gap that i went for and it was the right option i felt no contact and didn't know sh33py was on the left of me but luckily i think he backed out so i made the move stick fairly i believe.But sh33py you did overtake me in a few laps time.I hope we have a great race on Monday.

Ye we all know what Senna said and the majority of people live by it like myself, but if its a manageable gap without the consequences contact or sending people spinning you.. Shoving it up the inside like a dare is just foolish.. Nothing better than racing somebody in the knowledge you know they will leave you room, its like a wierd understanding in your head even though they are miles away!
