    Take it easy. I am by far not the fastest driver on earth, so I usually get the best results from being patient, keeping the car on the black stuff and waiting for other people to go wrong.

    Keeping fingers crossed.
    Maybe I won't. Cause the fastest time trail time I set at Brazil with their settings was 1:09.454 which basically puts me well in the top spot world wide (and cross platform I believe). Everything above that was done with often a Mercedes and custom setup, which isn't allowed.

    One thing I forget about completely... making a pitstop. Truth be told... I've never done it in this game but it's fully assisted and setup/strategy is fixed. So yeah, I just need to mind my tyres I suppose.
    Besides that the cars are set to equal performance. So it's like driving fragile karts on a flat screen by the end of the day, or something like that.

    Scratch that 1:09.454 guys (which actually was a 9.424 in hindsight). I was trying to keep my cool and drive cleanly and in my opinion less on the edge than I would normally... what happened? I did a 1:09.388.

    Who was it again that had the quote in his signature in WMD... "Slow is fast"?


    For those into telemetry. Can you guys make heads or tails from this, these are my two fastest laps?

    I don't need it explained. I just thought maybe some of you chaps saw any mistakes or at least areas for improvement. Maybe in areas of smoothness.

    Although I already feel I am at the limit as is. Without setup adjustments there is little more I can do.

    (of course I can't sleep now. lol! I'll go back to trying)

    Solid race mate! Congrats! Keeping in mind it was one of your first MP races and I couldnīt find any incidents - hats off! Plus I have no idea of how I would pass this if I knew I was on tv.

    As expected I missed the live stream and remembered the event accurately at 9:16 pm. Unfortuantely there was a lot of blabla in between (which I didnīt understand). I was under the impression the race wasnīt the #1 attraction there.

    Quite surprising how many people were using the t-cam view.

    So what does that mean now Christiaan? Is your journey going on or is it finished now with 7th place?

    Journey is over, sadly. Only P1 and P2 will continue to next round tomorrow, but sadly non would fight for the pro-league as it's the end of the season. So it was just for fun for all in the end.
    So in that sense it's a failure as I won't move on.

    I was involved in the T1 crash though. Just when I turned in I got hit from behind, this caused me to oversteer and about 3 to 4 cars slammed into me or so it felt like. After which I cut T2 and got into 4th place, but due to damage I fell back to P7... in a bloody Force India.

    Also it seems that the Physics are different between singeplayer and multiplayer, which is something we had issues with during WMD2 as well as I recall. Also the FOV seems to differ per car, so having praticed in a Red Bull and got into a Force India my braking points all seemed off.
    Plus Clubsport vs Thrustmaster pedals... need I say more for braking feel.

    All excuses out of the way. I tried my best and had some fun, which is all that counts. Although I must say that I really want to join online racing more and improve myself. Does everyone in the old WMD2 crew still race online?



    Anyway, here's the Youtube video of the evening for those that missed it. I'll be watching it to see what happened in T1, because I had a nice start.
