Kurbatov leads Graydon into the Hairpin at the end of the Parabolika 'straight'. Heavy braking and turn-in raised my locked right rear wheel off the tarmac. This kind of close action went on forever! Nice racing Artem:)
Veedol Chicane, end of lap 1. Slezacek leads from Alvarez, van der Linden, Ansoon, Lorente, Ciocanau - then battle for P7 between Graydon and Diniz. I was P4 on the reverse grid, but the BMW's flew by into T1!
Ryan Ansoon eventually passes Andy Graydon into T5 - a move started into T1, side by side all the way to this point, with Ryan on the inside line for this left hander. Great battle for first half of the race.
P3 on the grid at the start, too much wheel spin meant I was P6 on lap 1, but worked my way up to P3. Around 4 laps to go Gomes lines me up with a great slipstream on the main straight, about to lose my P3.
