warmup: 35.3ish with high fuel, seemed ok

quali: plan was: high fuel, start from behind. result: 44% wasnt actually high and pole. wtf.. 34.6 lap felt okay/good but not so strong

race: lap 1 hevonen kamikazes a little, in the collision with him, i end up getting pushed from dede into a tree and fall back to 9th place. from the physics it felt like that massacre was caused due to hevonen, so i didnt even check if dede showed any misbehaviour there.

from lap 1 to 51 i had constant warps, basicly max a few times over 2 seconds no warp. low to middle warps, those which can easily make you lose a couple of tens per lap.

in addition i had eh..at least 5-6 huge lags, maybe more..which felt a bit like those ones i had in power/wokingers rally league. the big warps start, 4-5...then suddenly you are in the middle of nowhere, trying to search gold under a tree

sry at xzeal/lemon, the deep sandpart, where you drive so fast if you are on the track, but so slow (with slow steering as well) if you are in the sand...xD didnt see you coming soo out of a sudden, though i didnt rly try that hard after just getting "control" of my car again. with more concentration i coulda brake and avoid 1 of the 2 cars. this way, at least i hold up both the same way^^

8th place in the end. not much more was in there.
the few mistakes i did when calculating fuel (go in deep sand), go offroad slightly when checking fastestlaptime of dede @34.1 lap short after lanz...and a couple of unmotivating/dreaming slight offroad parts...werent too big mistakes

2 laps off, reminds me to some laggy GT-car race with wokinger from ~last year or some -1 or -2 laps result in a warpy terra server f1 race (monaco) with suntzubr as winner (where i still got maybe +-3rd) from eh..9 years ago?^^

nice far-away-battle with lanz for a few laps. first i backed off and feared to get a fastestlap blocked. then lanz made a solid 34.0 and built a solid gap i couldnt have probably kept low even without my warps, maybe.

@rei..
i probably go ahead and upload a photo i once made of my finger when driving too much^^. one of those evenings where i actually had to stop playing because the burn was too high. but in an official race i think i would never quit on that.
oh yeah, you were 5th, but when i overtook you in the lap you left, short later you talked, and probably this made me get lag and i gone deep offroad. thx for that solid 41.5ish lap or whatever i had there.

at this place, sry for disconnecting during quali (to check my startfuel). i should have waited till end of quali. that is actually worth a little punishment, since disconnections during quali cause lags to other people sometime. probably other ppl talking already until that point during race, which is causing similar problems sometimes and might deserve punishment as well.
i actually cant currently race with 2 of 3 tab stat positions - way too high framedrop

^^ hehe...if i get a dollar for each time rei was going to quit TS forever..

so, here the pre promised photos of "hurting finger(s)":

http://mikenike.mi.funpic.de/ts/fun/dri ... riving.JPG

http://mikenike.mi.funpic.de/ts/fun/dri ... ving-2.JPG

looks way harmless than it was though.
probably shoulda taken photos when fingers were actually bloody or had those bloody red parts at 1 side of the finger nail when you accidently cut the nails too much, resulting into hurt for the finger everytime you hit a key.

ha lol if you watch closely in screenshot 2, you see one of the dirty parts on the monitor which happen to occur quite frequently. and if you dont wash them away before a race, depending on the dirt position, you are ..well, not screwed, but if you drive long enough, you know it can nerv a little..

was nice to see that i still got some speed left after not playing with the F1 car for ages! obvious that my consistency sucked badly, i made loads of mistakes! also we crashed into a parking mike on the track fighting with hevo for the 2nd place! anyway 3rd is not bad considering that 2nd place would of been the max cos dede was flying once again! was nice racing, enjoyed it really, also nice to hit the fastest lap! :wink:

hehe mike! seems you almost lost a finger wanking for the Zandvoort race! :lol:

I dont think it was my fault. Mike did mistake in the corner and I crashed him. Watch you driving line. Looks like you are going out no matter what.

im a little surprised. probably your replay (which i didnt watch yet, i watched only mine) says something different.
hevs kamikazeline there felt like obvious going into deep sand, so it didnt felt like a dive-overtaking-try.
that said, the little collision with him (i felt the difference in race) made me go a slightly different line.
without the touch it coulda likely resulted into getting a push from dede behind, but likely me not getting pushed into the tree (and keep on the road and maybe keep 1st).
i think i was too friendly there on the outside, trying to not risk a collision, trying to give hev space to drive slow through the inside, while i drive very far outside. i actually coulda close the door earlier, but with these warps i had, i probably did the safety-choice, which is fine.
i think i woulda made the curve (or slightly sand touch), ending up with a little more left-rotation, if hev woulda slowed down (and not collide with me).

still feels a bit like a joke that i go from basicly 1st to 9th there and you guys act a little like everyone drove fair there.

anyway..with this connection i probably shouldnt take part though. im gonna position my laptop somewhere else next race. but i doubt it will help..

Racing incidents happen in real F1 too. Drivers spin for whatever reason and end up in last place.

I would not say anything if that happened to me, no matter whos fault it was. But maybe its finnish mentality.

finnish mentality, i liked that one :)
and germans are so rule orientated, so stereotype^^

@lanz
haha i know that you meant that. in my screen it didnt just looked like i parked there, it looked like i circled/bw-ed/checked a couple times if i want to enter the pits..
i actually even tried to put down the gfx from 1280x800, but that was the lowest 8:5 mode. the 640x480 created a weird car movement. like..if car drives diagonal normally, it goes 60 degrees instead or something similar weird undriveable. well, i could try testdrive in a 640x480 window next time. i wonder if the 2nd monitor i had running in addition caused trouble...

2 incidents saw them both nothing to do about it.
these are split second calls we sometimes make, and indeed Mike you did go wide and so Hevonen wanted to grab the spot. it looks so reasonably minor, there was a sure touch but i see this as a racing incident

but that said the incident with dede can be questionable i also watched that zoomed in aswell but i couldnt make much of it its such a mess.

but this is the warm up cup before the big event Mike :) still plenty time to get in form and rid of those nasty lags ;)

To all the brilliant people who voted for Sunday evenings and did not show up and I do mean this sincerely: f*** YOU!

On an evening before a workday is horrible horrible idea, these things can get delayed by quite a bit sometimes.
