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.
yes i do to mate , i am not having a go, we had a good race i'm just asking whats ok and whats not, it was the second corner you were on my left. i have a video to upload.

Hi sh33py i have seen the video you put up and can see why your anoyed because i think that lag and connection played around with it to.I would like to draw a line under this and start again at monza where we will fight for the title of gp2 with fpnerves.

its fine mate honest, i know lag pays apart in some cases, your car vanishes when betrayer is behind you, and i also raced betrayer at Abu Dhabi gp2, when he passed me he hit the side of me and i thought it wasnt a fair move, then when i looked back at it on his video its the cleanest move you could wish to see !!!  we had a bit of lag at spa last round you were on top of my car at one point!!! maybe its my conection i dont know,  bring on Monza i am sure it will be great race, starting to warm to this track now !!

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.


if someone gains a position on you then yes the position should have been given back.
