Control: $10 Logitech Precision gamepad

Considering that I made two extra pitstops for broken front and rear wings, I am lucky to gain a third 2nd place of the season. Early on the car stuck in 6th gear for a few nervous moments, prompting me to consider retiring the venerable Logitech gamepad I purchased in 2007. I should have won this race as for once I could keep up with Tracy. Higher downforce than the pack resulted in inferior straight line speed but superior exit speed leaving corners. It's a fun track with a slippery surface. I'm somewhat annoyed at the mistakes I made. Like previous races in my GP2 career, impertinence during the lapping of back markers got the better of me. Although the lapped AI often drive like reckless maniacs, it's still my job to get past them cleanly. I failed to do this on two occasions, thus throwing away a race victory.
