Here's my video from the mid-pack.
I locked them up in T3 at the start and flat spotted the tires a little bit at the start. Had a little vibration for the next few laps, but not too bad. After the safety car, my tires really went off and it was like driving on ice. Lap times went down by >1sec from that point as I struggled for grip. This phenomenon happened at Thunderhill last month after the safety car too, but that day was considerably hotter than at Laguna this weekend. I would think the safety car period would cool the tires and provide better grip afterwards, but for some reason the opposite is happening. Has anyone else experienced this? The tires were on their 16th cycle.
Overall, a great weekend. Congrats to Matt and Justin. It was fun hanging out with you all.
