Since I know your team told at least a few other teams we dive-bombed you and told me to go "f**k off" when I came to apologize, even though I didn't dive-bomb you, here is the data trace from that lap: The blue lines are recordings for the lap in the video, the red lines are from a fast lap for comparison. At the point highlighted, you can see I am approaching the apex for turn one. The first graph is lateral G, I am pulling half what I usually do in turn one and there is a small dip, that is where I tapped you, like I admitted. Your own video shows we were dicing, when you went outside, where did your driver think I went, especially when he slowed to the same speed as the traffic we were lapping? I went inside to follow the faster car but he came over and left me no room, all I could do is jam on the brakes. That is shown in the next graph where I was braking as normal, then had to brake again hard, then a third time hard. The second brake application was when I stood on them to try to avoid you, the third time was to avoid you in the spin. The fact that I was able to apply the brakes again hard, without lockup, shows I left a margin of error through the corner - that's not a "dive bomb". For comparison, here is a data trace from one of our other cars, which had a hit exactly like you accused me of doing: It's a different system, but I circled the impact on the lateral G chart. It was enough of a hit to cave in the driver's side of the car. The green line is the normal corner trace, the black line with the abrupt change of direction in the trace is the lap with the impact. Note the difference in scale as well, that car has a much higher performance potential so the scale is wider than the Alfa collection, yet the hit shown on the Alfa trace barely registered - with a smaller scale, an actual dive-bomb hit should have spiked on the Alfa chart. Our resident data acquisition geek was even unwilling to commit to that being an actual impact it is so small; you can see similar bumps along the fast lap trace at varying points as a normal part of a lap. The last chart on the Alfa data is speed, I was way slower at the apex of the corner than I normally was. A dive bomb implies braking later and carrying too much speed to make a clean apex. I broke at the same point, harder than before and held the brakes into the apex, overslowing the car to avoid contact on the lap in question. Again, not a dive-bomb. Looking at the video, it is clear your driver slowed to the same pace as the Talon, then came over. I was holding a normal race pace on the inside line, so there was a big closing speed and I am sure in the heat of the battle your driver didn't check his mirror. That will happen. But the data shows I did everything I could to avoid hitting you, including leaving a margin of safety in my approach to the corner. I did not dive-bomb you. Additionally, the video shows after you missed the guard rail, your driver failed to do what they teach Day 1 in every driver's school and race school - "in a spin, both feet in." You can hear him go full throttle, which is what resulted in your car smashing the Talon. Had your driver put both feet in, you wouldn't have spent Saturday fixing the car and the Talon wouldn't be smashed. I am only posting this because I take offense to the disparaging comments your team made about me and my team, the complaints your team made to the officials and the completely offensive and inappropriate way your team acted when I came to apologize - for something that your own video and my data prove I did not even do. I am sorry about the tap, but there was nothing else I could do to avoid your car when it came over on me with a 20+mph speed differential. I'm honestly VERY sorry you were out of the race Saturday, I was really enjoying the several laps before the incident when we were dicing it up and swapping positions a couple times a lap. That was awesome! But, while I understand you were upset about your car, there's no excuse for the way your team spoke to me when I was only there to apologize and offer our assistance to get you back on track.
