A really frustrating qualifying – no less than 3 of Martin’s very good laps ruined by “pro” drivers backing off to get clear track for themselves, but not allowing overtaking. So we had to start from the second half of the field – 29th position.
But we had a good race until the point where torrential rain hit the track – it is seldom that safety cars are deployed because of rain (but it happened both here and at Spa) – and also here, even the pro drivers were spinning off the track because of the standing water. I also had a scare, seeing a McLaren parked on the track further ahead, so I eased off the throttle – but that change of balance was enough to send me spinning – I braced for impact, but luckily narrowly missed the car! (from the TV coverage I have later seen that 2 other cars spun left and right around the car before the 3rd did hit the sitting duck). After that I tiptoed around the track and the race was red flagged after 30 minutes of this.
But we end the race in the points! – 8th position!
Result: Qualifying p29, Race: p8 (in class) and p18 (out of 39)
