I prepared for this race with a Ferrari. Setup was a bit of an issue for me as I could find the perfect balance with the Ferrari.
The main issue was the power diff. Using 85/../1 the car felt too understeer-ish and didn't improve much when added rear rebound.
Going 60/../1 wasn't good either because to me it just was too easy to get it in a spin.
So, for once, I booted up GPLSM and set the power diff to 70/45/1. And on track, it just about felt like the right comprimise.
Maybe I should look into it more often.

For qualifying I aimed for driving two hot sessions and one session on race fuel.
On the first run I got a lap time I felt so confident about I decided to spent the rest of the session on race fuel.
By the end of the session, my qualifying position has remained where it was. Third position.

Start was not that great, had a tad too much wheel spin but maintained position.
I focused the entire race on maintaining that place as I knew the two in front of me would just drive away.

One time I got the hairpin wrong so I got a bit of a nervous moment, but after that I could disconnect myself from the rest
and drive in a comfortable position for pretty much the entire race.

Lap 44 I went a tad too wide on the exit of turn 1, but remained out of trouble.
About 10 laps to the end I suddenly noticed Iestyn made its way up to 4th, gradually closing the gap of about 6 seconds.
At this point I felt I had to push a little bit more to keep me safe, and with three laps to go, I pretty much got myself covered, until going into Curvón de Solis the valve of my Ferrari ceased.

This opening race would have been perfect, apart from a small flaws.
The pace was there, the qualifying went above expectations, and I was going to complete an all-Dutch podium.

I'm very dismayed, but I think I can be happy about my driving.
Here's hoping that the season won't end up as another fiasco like 0DRT was.

On to the next track... is that the same track??
Oh it just looks the similar. On paper at least. :huh:

Nice idea, Kayo.
I hope more people in the community will try it :)

I think it is a great alternative should server problems occur.
