Are you going to do a manual grid order then or shall we all wait for the safety car to pass us before we head off for the warm up lap?

What a race!

Annoyed at myself for finishing 7th when 5th or even 4th was on the table, but that said.... loved the fight I was having with T5Black and Maarten, and I really hope you guys did too!

I'm proud I had the pace of the front runners to fight back up the field, after a wee touch from samdigby gave me rear aero damage in the opening laps but I should really have the talent by now to race with a bit of damage, so going off and damaging myself more was on me. Starting with full fuel helped a LOT with getting me back up the field when others were taking on 30% or more at every stop.

Those RM tyres were really good and I really wish I'd gone RM for quali because they had a substantial amount of grip! Overall I finished the race where I started, with more than enough flickers of the pace that was absent from Fuji to keep me happy!

I needed 5mph out of each gear though! :lol: all race my aim was to try and run T1 all the way around at 165mph, and I got 162 dropping to 5th and just straddling that rev limit. :lol: really shouldn't be aiming for that sort of thing 2 laps from the end though!!

You my friend were an absolute rocketship!! Fully deserved a win had things gone better at the start.
Cheers mate, things just didn't fall my way at the start, got a bit excited on the wheelspin too :D , then a few daft mistakes later I'm well happy with 3rd :P

It's quite nice to see the pace is there, and although I put way more effort into the setup and practice than I usually do, it showed. I set a 1:12.9 last lap on mediums, for example. The pace was unreal (for once) Goes to show how important consistency is.



Oh and, guys, the liveries on show! It looks absolutely brilliant :D

You TSR boys all have the same setup? Was pissing away time on the straights l, probably had too much downforce on my car. Well chuffed with 6th after starting last, didn't have any qualifying pace and then binned it.

A question though, if I bin it on my 4th lap and have to pit I presume the 5th lap is my outlap and I can't get another lap in?

No, I think me and TSR_Jimmy had the same setup though.

Well done on the race too :D

And very good question, this will be clarified soon but my suggestion now is, it will likely cut your laps, as a consequence of crashing. So, the lost lap and the outlap means one crash cuts your flying laps from 5 to 3.

We're usually trying to keep things moving quickly and everyone finishing roughly together makes it all a bit easier.

Well in fairness I thought it was better when you had no pitting in qualifying turned on, it doesn't make sense to be able to repair your car if you crash it.

And another thing if I do an extra lap cos I binned it then that means I gain a little advantage by having less fuel in my car for my extra lap, so think I did the sportsman like thing by parking up at the side of the track

I pitted but still only done 5 laps (including the pit lap)

From comfortably leading the standings to wishing Joe gets lower than 4th if I win both remaining races to be able to win the championship...

By the way the championship top 3 is just in another league.

Now Joe has to get twice as many points for the Nukeshot squad.
Teams championships do not exist here.

In the standings, yes, there is a gap between the top-3 and the rest of the field. However I do feel like there’s a few drivers missing out on results they could’ve gotten and the grid in Yama was very very beefy with some drivers not having driven the entire season..

Judging by CJ and I both messing up one of our races badly and Joe’s consistency i expect Joe to take the title by the next race, but you never know ;)
