awful track lol,decided not to qualy as my best was only 42.1 in practice,only finished 7th which was expected,despite this had an enyoyable clean battle with burty,first race long battle ive had all season and we pushed each other all the way,it took my best defensive driving to hold him off,im guessing its not a track he enjoyed too,but despite only finishing 7th I was glad of the opportunity to have a good old battle.Well done burty.

Quali - 6th
Not good session, made mistakes on options gaining only 1:45 and on returning to pits and seeing top 3 in the 41's and my PB only ever being low 42 I went back out on primes with the aim of getting into the 44's. Hit the wall in sec 3 which finished my chances of qualifying on primes.
Race - 5th. Restart helped me as I was able to start on fresh options. After 3 safety car laps we began and I managed to keep my place to Burty and Rob. Chased Dec and Mansel for a while but quickly lost ground as I just didn't have the pace of the front runners. MVA made an early mistake but passed me at the end of the second staight with DRS. After that I had a quiet race. Towards the end both Rob and Burty were catching me but both made mistakes and fall away then MVA crashed, pitted fell about 14 secs behind with 5 laps to go. Fortunately he made another little mistakes too falling away and Ibrought the car home to finish 5th.

In all a consistent race for me again which is pleasing just that I was not quick.

Further to the above; I knew I was likely to lose my last chance of the title this weekend and so it proved, Sean and Bob are in a class of their own at the minute. 
I am pleased however that Sean and I have wrapped up the Constructers title for Lotus with 2 races remaing, well chuffed and that 3rd place in the drivers championship is almost mine.
