lost connection on the warmup lap. apparently it was decided to not restart the session so there goes just about a whole week of practice and preparation.
let me know if it gets restarted again or not but yeah. great shit. another probably guaranteed at least 5 points down the drain because my fucking ISP cant get their shit together. of all the times it could have crashed and rebooted, it had to do it right there.
gg to whoever wins this. guess i dont have this one in the bag as much as everyone is claiming already.
Damn it, I bumped the exit of that horrible final chicane and the car spun into the barriers.
A good start to the race with everyone seeming to move out of the way therefore I go from 10th to 5th. A bit later move spins and drop out for others and I'm up to 3rd place . Then a spin from me and re-join in 5th to get stuck behind Ray until I crashed. The car felt good and I was running A front and B rear tyres, I should have gone a long way before stopping.
Car didn't respond to inputs on the grid so pitlane start.
Did well to catch up, then ran into Victor which gave me steering/suspension damage aswell as losing my FW.
That made the car adventurous to drive and I had a hard time in left hand turns.
Toughed it out until I was up to 7th, but going for a fresh set of D tyres I blew them 2 turns in. Got them replaced after a careful lap to the pits. It strangely felt so undrivable compared to my worn C tyres that I went sideways and beached myself in the gravel at a bad point.
Too bad, had pace to race with John Thim and was only 20s off of him before I ran into Victor...
Congratulations to Janik for the win!!!! Awesome!!!!!! Congrats to Miller and Ray for the podium.
I messed up early in the race blowing the front 2 tires and it was very hard to bring the car to the pit. I was there just for the fun and respect for the hard work ISO put after that.
I was hopping for the 6th place when I was in 7th but suddenly positions started to fall in my lap. Wilks was in front about 6s and my tires were almost 50 laps old. I decided to stop and put fresh tires and put qualify laps until the end. I knew I could run +2 seconds faster per lap and I had nothing to lose, and Thim was 1 lap behind. I was awesome!!!! After that you can watch in the broadcast.
I had so much fun. Very unfortunate so many people had issues.
Great race! Very happy to score a point in my first Lotus outing. Also so much fun being back racing with you guys.
Was mostly doing tyre management since I knew I did'nt have the pace against the front runners. Running alone helped me alot with this during the race. However you can very easy fall out of pace in doing so. Especially not managing the tires correctly. Learned that when Thiago caught me easily with an amazing pace.
The car was great mostly because of my fellow Swedes, big shout out to Anders and Jonathan! Your help gained me atleast 5 sec a lap. Man I had it wrong before that. Don't know if I deserved that, but I am very thankfull. Sad to see you both retired since you both had great pace.
Sorry to see so many retirements, especially my teammate Anders, and G. DPiccolo.
I tried to keep some heat on GDP from the get go, but he was very consistent and doing a great job with traffic. Decided to quit paying attn to the gap going up n down and just drive, then w 25? laps to go I noticed I was in 1st!?? Not sure what happened GDP, but I think that race was his today!
Being no stranger to mistakes and misfortune, I tried to be kind to the car the rest of way, and go only quick enough to not lose concentration. I thought this race would never end
Don't know if I "deserved" a win or if I'm just a blind squirrel finding a nut? But after 3+ years of trying(including our former league) against some of the toughest competitors to gather in one place it's great to finally get that stupid troll monkey off my back Super happy no matter how it happened
Congrats to D Miller, Ray Riddall, and the rest of the survivors

What a great racing it was, for the second time I could try one of the best cars in 1991 season. Just love that Lady in Red more and more. Thanks for the help of my teammate David Sabre I could run on a very competitive setup. The next problem to overcome was that my knowledge of this racetrack was from the Microprose GP2 times some 20+ years ago. Some misty memories of the pit entry/exit area and that there are some fast sweeping corners between chicanes was all I had. Thank God for the 20 minutes of the warm up session
Main goal for this race was not to do anything stupid and don't ruin the race for the other competitors. It was very tempting to try some different lines through some of the corners and to enter last chicane on 4th instead of 3rd gear, but this time my small common sense was strong enough to keep my driving on the safe side.
Congratulations to Brian, Dave and Ray and all of the drivers- this is one of the most demanding track in the calendar. Sorry for Pascal and Gabrielle- races shouldn't be decided like that, but in the other hand the competition for the championship gets tighter.
Thank you for the great broadcast and to Mike Olson for letting to drive the Ferrari twice. Hope you'll get well before Belgium GP.
Congrats Brian! It sounds easy to say now, but see? You always had what it takes to grab a win(and still before me in a F1 HE season event), now you've achieved it, well done!
Also congrats to all that finished, especially the Lotus duo! Colin Chapman would've been proud
As I said, I had some bad luck yesterday, but I did have my fun with the Footwork racing at Hungary. It was weird though, with the car being roughed up and tending to spin to the left in left handers and another wall bang that dented the right(which made the car somehow a bit more straight again), coupled with my rather worn B tyres, it felt kind of funny but challenging(to lose it and spin out at any moment) to steer and slightly slide through the turns.
Maybe I shouldn't have pitted for D tyres(or at maximum for a set of C) after all!
I also changed my steering rotation to 400° in both Profiler and Game(as I already did in rF2), maybe that gives/gave me a better feeling for the steeering input and response.
Would probably be tough to get the Footwork near the points again, especially with my underwhelming qualification attempts. Think I am missing the right kind of aggression to go to the limit of the car but not overdoing it(coupled with the sub-par setup ideas).
A big bravo to Thiago for that, his time with the Larousse was astonishing!

nobody deserve a disco , it like sawing your seat under your bud. we all been there , so feel sorry for all who had it last night.
was great to watch last night, somehow the Hungaroring always shows good action despite from the driver point of view a very mental track for almost 2 hours in the cockpit also glad the gravel pits doing there work in AMS aswell..but realy horrible that bug in the pistreet, must be a forgotten material AMS didnt red and took somebody out, forgot the driver. Im very happy of Brains his first win in the 91 mod he realy deserve this , a big reward of his contribution of the mod which go back to the f1sr days, Cheers mate!
