The first race of this tournament brought us great fights all over the grid. The driving selection seems to be excellent and we will enjoy great clean fights in the next four races.
Filipić is in the qualifications that lasted 18 minutes immediately set a great time 1: 25.0 which was then half a second faster than any other driver. However, Ferrari's FrankyPi is in second attempt expectedly approached within one tenth of a second. Filipić confirmed his great form with a new round where he got three more tenths and the pole position was decided.
Behind them, a great circle formed DarrianAlfy in AlphaTauri, and only half a tenth ahead of Djotunović in Renault. Behind them was a group of as many as 6 drivers with incredibly similar times. Miljević1, xEmperor, Almighty, Meks, Duy and Mario drove between 1: 25.414 and 1: 25.594, which closed the top 10. Much more was expected of Marija in the qualifiers, but he made up for it later in the race.
At the bottom of the standings were RoyalMaro, DarMaar, Mikadin, BEARman, RazoR, NiKra95, Marigam 3.0 and Rob1.
The start of the race immediately brought drama. In the formation circle Almighty is disqualified because of the contact with BEARman and because of that he made a mess after turning off the red lights. Namely, when the driver has contact in the formation circle - the game automatically transfers him to the starting point and then his tires are much colder without the formation circle than necessary for the start. Almighty thus initially lost control and twisted into a couple of other cars. Several drivers could not avoid the collision, so due to the fractures of the front wings, they had to box right at the beginning.
But the luck in the accident was that the safety car came out so going to the pits was not as expensive as it could have been. Another driver had an accident at the very beginning because he came in contact with xEmperor during SC, and that is DarrianAlfy. Darjan received a penalty of 5 seconds for that touch and decided to go to the pits for hard tires, serve the penalty immediately and try to hold out until the end of the race. His excellent qualifications were thus annulled and he returned only to the 13th position. For Darjan, this was not the end of the trouble because he failed to warm up the hard tires and as soon as the safety car left - he twisted and broke the front wing. However, despite a new trip to boxing, Darjan drove in a sporty spirit until the end of the race, on which he should be congratulated.
At the top, FrankyPi had a better start than Filipić and took the leading position in the first turn. But the 7th round brought us a tense fight for the first position. Filipić attacked in the first corner, and FrankyPi twisted his Ferrari while trying to defend the position. So he fell to the fifth position and later with good tactics and great pace he managed to return P2.
Mario redeemed himself for poor qualifications and also managed to finish on the podium with good tactics. The fourth was Dux, followed by Djotunović, Meks, Almighty, xEmperor, miljević1 and RoyalMaro.
All drivers should be commended for driving a clean race and without major incidents. All the fights were fierce, but they were all correct, so the overall impression was much better. Online racing has the biggest problem with drivers who do not have a sense of where the limit is possible and do not know how to give in to attack or miss in defense when that is the only possible outcome. In this case, no one applied Ferstappen's earlier maneuvers, but pushed each other to the edge without crossing it.
The next race is run in a week, and which track will be chosen will be announced on Friday at judge's office.
