Pretty intense race here
Qualified 2nd, a tenth away from my PB, and 7 tenths away from Kimmo's alien lap
But he had to start from pits...that means...that I start first
Green lights! And Wyatt Gooden blows by me. Tried to get a pace and follow him, but in the process Richard got the 3rd and started to push me hard. At one point it seemed as I was getting faster and starting to close on Wyatt, but I bobbled coming out to the 2nd back straight, and Hylands decided that it was a good moment to try an overtaking move...if you ask me, that's not a good place to do it at all. I have to look at the replay, but on that moment it felt like if Rich closed on me and touched my car, upsetting it and sending it into the grass and towards the wall. I could continue, but losing several spots and my car was now bent
From there, I tried to gain as much as I could. I did another spin, Eric passed me, then I started to chase him until he spun. Then, I was chasing Larry, 10 secs back. Something happened to him, cause I saw him spinning in the grass on T5. Something else happened to Wyatt...now on 3rd and trying to keep Gunny at distance. I was pushing to close the distance, but I wasn't achieving it. Then I spun again and lost all chances. Kimmo wasn't too much far away from me now, and he started to reel on me. A couple of spins from both delayed the final result, but on lap 40, he passed me on the straight. I started to follow him closely, and achieved to keep him at a close distance for two laps, until I messed my shifts in the last corners and he sailed away. But one lap later, he spins on the same place! Seems that some luck is coming back to me. Even better, Richard runs out of fuel in the last lap! That puts me on 2nd place! WHOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
Team Tyrrell rules man!
Congrats to Gunny on a great win, and to Kimmo on a tremendous run from the back. Also to Leo Menegucci, who was doubting to start the race, he did it from pits for not messing up anybody, and managed a beautiful 4th place. WTG!
