Bad luck mate. :(

I wondered where you'd gone, Francois - bad luck.

I never felt I got to grips with this awful track, but still qualified 9th. Not sure what happened to Tim, but that put me in 8th, behind Bob. After a few laps he made a mistake that the horrible Turn 2 (and how many times I nearly lost it there, I don't know) and I was into 7th. Bob put on a bit of pressure, but then disappeared - disco?  Then Francois was all over me, in the snarling Cooper. After he disco'd, I was nowhere near Peter in 6th, and nobody else was anywhere close behind me. The only enemy was lack of concentration and that bloody tarmac!

I'm trying to keep my blood pressure down, Tim. Grats on your podium, mate. :)

I qualified 5th in the Brabham with a PB. Got a good start and settled into 4th, with Roberto behind me. Somebody dropped out, and for about half the race I was running in 3rd. My eyes were on another podium when I made a mistake on the last tight right-hander, and Roberto passed me, with about 10 laps to go. I was enraged at my mistake and went crazy.... or in English speak, I was mildly annoyed and tried harder. I was bringing the gap down with 3 or 4 laps to go; I just did my fastest 1st quarter (faster than qualy), when my engine blew... :(

Hang on a minute... it's only a flesh wound... I pootled around at a max of about 100mph and ended up 7th. Last season, 7th would have been acceptable, but from where I was today, it feels like failure.
