What driver went most under the radar for you this year? I chose Vandoorne
Am I the only one who always takes the racing line while grocery shopping?
So to sum it up first. I had a blast. Before that I had rarely touched a wheel before. (Only Golf Karts and the Audi on my local glider club) I started from 4 place and was pretty nervous before it. I have been a Sim Racer for 4 years now but as I said, never had I proven my experience on a real Track. After the Start I was already catching up to the rest because they didn’t have a good feel for the Brakes. In the 3rd corner I already tried my first passing manouver but wasn’t successful. On lap one I tried passing the Number 3 but suddenly the Nr. 2 was very slow and instead of braking I tried to squeeze threw which then resulted in me doing a Verstappen in Singapore, only that to my left there wasn’t a car, but a wall. I was behind the half-Car Length of Nr. 3 so me bumping into him caused him to spin out and the yellow flag was raised for about 10 seconds. After that I was already trying a passing manouver on car 2 around the outside of turn 3. And after Lap 3 I was already in the Lead. From there on I drove In front of everyone and finished with half a Track Length, nearly lapping the last cars. Sadly it was only a 10 Lap Race but still, I would totally would do it ahain. The last 3 rounds I even figured out how to drive the whole track Flat Out after Lap 5. Sometimes I scraped the Walls but still I felt really proud. So this was my first race ever, what was you first expirience? Tell me if you want!
