Actually i'm changing testing to 8PM UK TIME, at least that's when i'll be there
Online is something different, i surely lack experience but we will see. I think i can be fast eventually.
By some unknown reason im lately not receiving mails when a post on the forum is made so.....i would have answered to this earlier but...i only saw it now.
Its great that you will not give up trying to beat the record ....as i said theres still plenty of space to improve the record. I didnt made at all a perfect lap.
If you keep trying to beat those records, even thought online is very different then online, your performance will increase heavily i assure you. Mainly cause you will know the tracks very well. Thats one of the most important points to be successful on this game.
@Mellor Please....tell what can i do to impress you!!?? I promise i will try to do it. Tell me, tell me....

Belgium: Don't know how, but I totally miscalculated fuel ranges and due to rain, I figured that out only on lap 17 or so. before last lap my meter was showing 0.7 laps, so i HAD to pit. I really hate when the whole effort is ruined by such irritating errors, like missing 2% of fuel. I don't really know if I had a chance to win the race, but I hope I didn't.
Well I find it difficult to have pity on you Prz as your pit bug routine has been devastating for the rest of us again... this time you werent even on my screen before we entered the pits and you exited firmly ahead, Rob was wtfing as well
There's some mistakes on that list. I was 5th in Germany!
Couldnt set a Q so i was in trouble, specially for a track i dont know really. I started at 9th with a full grid in front of me and....even worst...COLLISIONS!!!
Started very bad involving myself with a lot of crashes and going to grass often due to taps,bla,bla,bla....i remember finishing first lap with almost half of my tires gone! I was pointing to a 8+8+5 tactic and for sure after this brilliant start i had to change it, but didnt knew for what!
Slowly i started to get that pace and getting used to the track. In the end i end up with a fetch to Mr Prz who was on soft tires but fastly loosing grip while i was on Hards, Slower but with a bit more grip.
My efforts weren´t enough to catch that 3rd place that would have given me a 33 Podium in a row record! The streak is over and the pressure is gone finally! Will there be anyone who can reach even those values? Thats the question being made. The answer is: If there is, it will not impress Mellor for sure!
I really enjoy that track and the fact i could set a Q was gratifying cause i could grab the pole.
Started very fast and was enjoying the fact that there was a big column of drivers behind me for about 7 laps or so, or even almost till the end of the race, which is great. Only in last laps this platoon started to fragment. No collisions can make this.
No real trouble all race except when rain came. I got a bit confused to be honest, maybe due to lack of sleep....
I went to wets and kept that advantage i gathered till then. Weather decided to change again to dry.
I remember making the counts to exactly 4+4 laps that would make the 19 Laps of the cicuit but....for some reason my counts were wrong and i was missing one lap! Luckly Prz (That was on 2nd) had exactly the same problem. Maybe a lapse in time happened?? I had to pit on last lap and tanked with 7%....left pit and Peter was about 1,5s away on hard tires but very wasted already. So i drove the car till the finishing line almost with no tires on (cause of course i didnt changed them for 1 lap only). Finishing line and i took the car to the 1st place but....not without running out of fuel at about 1 meter to finishing line! LOL Lucky me cause i wanted to tank on that last lap with 5% and cause it was too quick i tanked 7%!
10 players - we are stabilised on this number i guess wich is not great but nice!
Great pace from Peter opening a slight/tinny possibility for the pursuit of the tittle
Frost´s pace as well, got a 2nd on Germany right?
Leme pace as well, getting faster and faster...
Kotka i saw him on a 2nd place at one time, great! Will he start doing podiums soon???
Ferenc i saw him at 1st one time but....was when he forgot to pit for wets on Belgium! LOL
Podium Streak is over...i can sleep in peace now, with no pressure for keeping it
No Chang, Larsson, Costa, Marek, Ceraj (winner of driver fair play award of season 8)
I dont set Q on next GP which is: ESTORIL!!!!
Was nice weekend, specially on Germany where i had adrenaline on from half the race till the end!
