Tough race today but a good one. We will almost certainly have some communication going out to some drivers regarding driving respectfully on the track. We need to stay as clean as possible and not take each other out of the competition. I contacted Vladimir today so I am no better than anyone else and need to be more careful as well. Sorry about that Vlad.
Congratulations on the win and points lead Z! It looks like that new G27 is going to make it harder for everyone else for the rest of the season. Everyone else--> keep the pressure on him and don't give up!!

As stated this was not a great or clean race. There were several incidents, but overall I would still say it was less than in previous Grand Prix. And for as much negative there was just as much positive performances as well.
Admittedly this track and the car were not a perfect match. The track was super fast and then there were heavy braking zones. The aero effect while in the tow is quite active. We all knew this. We chose this track for that opportunity. Sadly this caught out many drivers on race day. Despite the conditions most of the racing was good. There were some overly aggressive moves made to overtake and a few to defend.
The MFiA again recommend that you get ample testing in on track and especially with race fuel settings. We recommend giving a little bit more room on track whenever possible. Blocking tactics are not allowed. They put all cars into a bad position, slow everything down, and usually lead to contact.
We do realize that a few drivers were upset and requested penalties, but we are trying to foster a positive environment to work through the bad moments. This is why the Regulations are written as they are.
Continue testing, please try to race with others as much as possible, and give a few extra inches!
