Woah, what to say?
Startet training on 21st of January, crashed at every second lap and was way off pace. Then missing qualifying because of work, but starting from the back wasn't that bad, so i could try to learn the track better and avoid the walls. At the start the car in front of me was missing, so i didn't know if i'm allowed to close the gap. At first i stayed away, but the game gave me some warning about getting to far away, so i closed the gap, i hope that was ok.
The race itself went better than expected, hat a lot of luck avoiding some crashes and did not creat own ones. Only made two mistakes, one after my pitstop by completely misjudging the braking point for turn 2. And one at the last lap, braked way too late on turn 2 trying to defend my position against Felix. After that my tires were mad at my, missind turn 2 again.
So P12 at the end is quite ok, lacking so much pace in the race.
My conclusion for Baku:
- great track, amazing to drive with GT Cars
- had maxed out graphics setting, wich was way too much for my PC, so hab onyl between 30 and 50 fps the whole race...
- that lighting conditions were a massive challenge, missing my "braking marks" many times
Thanks for the stream! Congratulations to the podium and to my teammate Joris, who did an amazing job!
