P2 IN CNK16-Circuito Portimao

UNFORTUNATE ENGINE PROBLEMS

A very, very unfortunate race at my home circuit. On Friday I was fastest in all sessions. Then Saturday morning I felt something weird with my engine. My crankshaft was bent 1 mm. I managed to secure a good qualifying position, but in the pre-final race start my carburetor failed. I fought my way back up to p4 from p11 in heavy rain with a bent crank shaft. But in the final race my engine got worse and worse, having me to defend instead of attacking. On sunday it was dry but my crankshaft was now bent by 4mm. Still, it was a good result considering my problems, and otherwise I would have definitely won everything.
