First of all, congrats to Ed Cullen for his victory: it was very well deserved, his Eagle rocketed across the track like it was nobody's business. I have to apologize to him for the first lapping he made on me: I was trying to give him the racing line, but the differential thought otherwise and made me go wide, so I had to sharply turn right and give it to him. This meant a near-hit but luckily everything went well.
So, the qualifying session wasn't that great, since I was still forced to do 1 outlap, 1 timed and 1 outlap, but the really short 1st gear managed to give me the edge while starting. I don't know if everybody experienced the same problem, but there was somewhat a lag issue at T1, since for long periods of time I couldn't see anybody, so I had to thread carefully. When everybody was up again, I realized I was 12th. Woohoo!
Too bad that the hairpin everything seemed to go to Hell because I got hit by a Ferrari and spun, and got hit by a Honda in the side. Managed to get back in the race, but I set myself on "Just bring it home and don't bullshit around" mode. Sure, there were some shenanigans (mainly because it's difficult to be consistent with a keyboard ) but in the end, when I saw that chequered flag, I felt like I really won it.
This time the Cooper didn't betray me and Maserati didn't bullshit me.
And it was fantastic!
I hope to be in a better car next season though ^^;
