On October 22, the fourth round out of ten of the PSGL x VRT Esports Cup took place at the long race track of Marina Bay, Singapore.
After three first excellent rounds, Team Mentalism heads into Singapore being third in the championship, 104 points behind Visceral Esports in the lead. Yoan and Louis are the two drivers lined up for the team, with the objective of doing a clean team race, in order to keep P3 in the standings.
In qualifying, Louis manages to get in the Top10 with a lap time of 1.34.669, while Yoan can only manage to start the race in P13 with a time of 1.34.888. This qualifying result allows both Team Mentalism drivers to be on a different strategy, as they aim to gain a few positions during the race.
At the start of the race, Louis gains a position on ET8_Gustav and sits P9, while Yoan breaks his front wing on an unfortunate incident with vFabii on Lap 3/31, which forces him to pit.
Louis pits for the hard tires on Lap 6/31, and an unexpected rain on Lap 17/31 obliges the whole grid for intermediate tires. After everyone put on the intermediates, Louis gets P11 and Yoan sits P14. The track dries out again on lap 26/31 and both Team Mentalism drivers pit for slick tires, as Louis gains P8 and Yoan P13 due to these conditions. Until the end of the race, Louis will keep this position while Yoan gains P11 on the last lap of the race thanks to an overtake on TheDutchMissile.
With decent points scored in P8 and P11, Team Mentalism is still in contention for P3 against WOR Esports and FVR Esports, as the team will be aiming to extend the gap on these teams next week in Belgium.
