Well, this last race could have bee so much fun for me. I could have had some fun in the group with nira and Luke, B13... But. I had a little misunderstanding with EnricoS. He came back from the inside line where he wanted to make doodle nervous, to the outside. Looks like he didn't leave the room there open for me... I tried to go to the outside as far as I could when EnricoS came back. It seemed like just a little touch, but in a corner, so he spun
I immediatelly thought about waiting for him and was uncertain for a moment. It would have taken so long and so many cars would have gone past, so I decided to think about it during the following lap and let him pass maybe in a way that doesn't make me lose so many positions... or, idk, just stay calm and think slowly, don't rush, the time will come, who knows what will happen...
Unfortunatelly EnricoS decided to let his steam off and pun me at the straight in the following lap while I let him pass, which caused my car to spin and crash into the wall, and also the motor stalled, because I don't use autoclutch. Following a few seconds of disbelief... until I got my car going again I already lost some 20 seconds
Soon Coss texted me his disbelief, too, something like "oh god!", can't remember clearly. After Coss gave him a drive through penalty he wrote in the chat "*" and "?" - come on, you don't punch someone in the face while he appologises and then ask "?"... Also the corner he let me through I was 50% sure he would ram me, that would just be awesome, and I would really have something to laugh about.
I also believe Coss should have booted him after this. This is simply unacceptable. Crashing someone deliberately should be an insta-boot (or more).
The rest of the race I was just a passanger, not clear in the head, but I managed to keep going, more or less consistently
I lost at least 10 championship points here (not only because of EnricoS, also through my own mistakes), it could have been a 3rd place in the final CC standing
So disappointed at myself again, I always get in these kind of situation where I see a gap that formed and think I can brake at my normal braking point since I'm far enough away, then those in front of me brake in the same milisecond as I and shuffle a bit, but I can't get the car stopped, although I braked slightly earlier than them already (braking point wise). I need to find out, yet, what's wrong with me in such situations.
Also I always need so much time to settle into my rhythm in the beginning of the race. After the first few corners I found myself in 2nd place, no panicking or anything, yet. Then a little bit of bad luck, since my mirors were set wrongly, dunno when that happened. hitting the "3" key a few times while in such an interesting situation... I missed my braking point slightly and suddenly I lost 2 positions. Next corner, my weak point all week long, I fail ofc and go off-roading, another 2 positions lost
Simply put, just a mess of a race for me, lots to improve, always a noob in something, that's my name
