However, that doesn't mean Red Bull Racing Esports Team sensation Sebastian Job is anything other than motivated to right out any wrongs next year. In an Interview with OverTake, he recapped the season as follows.
OverTake: Hey Sebastian, nice to talk to you again! In this hard-fought season, what are some key takeaways for you?
Sebastian is talking about the so-called "brake dragging" that seemed to have happened at the start of this year's season of the PESC. It is a way to warm tyres faster, but at the same time an exploit to the iRacing system, some argue. There was a heated debate about whether the technique is allowed or not. iRacing banned it in the pit lane, and some racers have been retroactively banned for it. At least for the first few races, it is believed to have made an enormous difference.
Hopefully, we can pick up the pace a bit. We have a good seven months to prepare for next season. While we really did struggle, it was more so Coanda that upped their level. Fair play to them, but we have to close that gap for next year. At the moment we are not close enough. There is work to do, but it was still a solid season, I suppose. But I'm not over the moon with it.
OverTake: You touched on a few things, but what were other key differences this year compared to last year?
So it is not something we certainly know how to fix for next year. Josh, Charlie Collins, Mitchell deJong, and Dayne Warren were probably all quicker than me every round, making it very challenging. We will make a few changes. Yuri Kasdorp came on board recently, as well as some other rFactor guys. Yuri will be doing iRacing as well and hopefully qualify for the PESC next year. That will be a bit more support, and fingers crossed, we can improve with that.
OverTake: Aside from Coanda, how do you assess the general level of the field from this year compared to last year?
OverTake: Even though this year went differently than expected, were there some highlights for you?
OverTake: As you mentioned, you found success in rounds like Spa. What worked then that didn't work in other rounds?
OverTake: You have touched on a few unfair aspects of this season. What would you like to see change in the future?
Sebastian has spoken out against some behavioural problems in the past. That is what this question refers to.
When you are against 6 people all teaming up against you you have to try a risky move, unfortunately didn't work out this time, but can say I tried. One of the most frustrating races I've been a part of, something needs to change as this really isn't fair.— Sebastian Job (@G2Sebi) April 10, 2021
OverTake: Lastly, what is next for you?
That certainly is very intriguing to hear. If Sebastian can qualify, we can't wait to see him compete against the elite. Maybe he will be able to challenge this gentleman. We at OverTake certainly wish him the best of luck!
