Question Time!

1. @Carcanon leads the championship by 36 points. Is he the big favourite for the championship?

Definitely yes. Has a good points haul, has pace and consistency.
2. So Monaco, what is the plan? Important to qually high as impossible to pass here. Hear that everyone, no dice bombs please.
3. How many will finish? Guess will be most, about 3-4 dnf’s if we are all smart at the start we can all get round

Q: 2nd
R: DNF

My qualifying time could've been better, pole was possible.

The race went fine until @Stewart Macdougall destroyed my race. Twice.

He had trouble since the beginning and he had front wing damage. At the end of lap 2 he hit the wall just before the pit entrance. Everyone was behind him and he should've been waiting for everyone to pass and rejoin safely. But instead of that he decided it was a good idea to turn into the pits while I was beside him.

When I came out of the pits in front of him he was stuck behind me. @Philip_66 was dnfd in the middle of the road and because of that I lost the control as I did not know if he would ghost or not. I was stuck for a lap behind @HoinkDoink, sorry for the touch at turn one, didn't knew how slow/fast you would make the corner. My mistake.
Passed him at the casino on the Verstappen way.
Then a lap later @Stewart Macdougall thought he could overtake me in turn one, while there is clearly no room for a overtake at the outside. We crashed again. I was done with this race.

I'm not sure if I take this to the stewards or not. But I was/am a bit pissed as this would've be a podium at least.

For the ones that like to see the incidents, I like to hear your thoughts:
30:10 & 37:10

Wow thats a tough thing @Carcanon ... i feel your pain

Not Picking Sides Here and of Course havent Seen his ... First one just feels kind of unaware/sleepy But the Second one really sucks ... Gotta know that you probably Need a lot of a Speed Advantage to overtake Here that just wasnt the case ... then it’s Most of the times 50/50 who dnfs...

Great race, good battles with donks & washy. Thank you to silentbob for letting me through when underpressure didn’t have to do that. I didn’t hit the wall once so mega proud of myself for that & my rave pace was very quick as shown by the one and only lap I had no one infront of me/right behind me(donks on ultras at end) it was purple all around.

Here are my two incidents hoping to get 8 seconds knocked off my finish time as you will see in the videos, really unfair glitches and penalties.

The qualify wasn’t too croudy has i was thinking, so i managed to get a pretty decente lap in the US (1:11.671).
My strategy was US and then SS in a one stop strategy that endup being a 2 stop when i hit the wall in lap 9 damaging my wing. I was in P1 being follow by @LSD_HIGH when that happened. I came out of the pits with new US in P10, lap 10, i knew i would have to stop one more time.
I get to P7 while some of us was going to the pits, in lap 13 i was getting closer to @milanozie who i manage to get on lap 14 but only could pass him on lap 18 when he hit the wall. So now, on lap 18 i was P5 with @LSD_HIGH follow me again around 3 sec behind. @LSD_HIGH was getting closer and closer, i knew he was fast, so on lap 22 i let him pass, there’s no point of keep him behind me when he was faster and we have more 17 laps to the finish.
I box for the HS tyres on Lap 27, came out in P7. On lap 36 i overtake @LSD_HIGH ghost car, to P5 with @Donks in P4 with 3 sec. penalty, wich i was already inside that gap, so P4 for me. Last lap to go and i was right behind @Donks, seeing @Renner9 and @washy03 , however, trying to overtake @Donks when that position was mine because of the penalty, i though that i would not risk my P4 on this track.
Passing the finish line i saw P3, J, Owesome. Great race for me, unexpected podium.

I think that's my car that's stuck there. On my screen you were driving around with a red cross next to your name as if you were disconnected, in P9. So something really went wrong there. I believe it happened when the host left the game, so that's a good lesson learned on why we should stay in :)

The first one he should've waited for me to pass and then entered the pits. Then no harm was done. He knew I came along and was beside him and still turned in.
The second one he braked far too late for sure, he could never make the corner that's why he might have locked up. A move what only could end up in tears.
A very agressive drive on a track where agressive driving is just impossible.

Crashed out right before fast lap in Q. Then crashed out lap 1 or 2. I was so distracted and it showed. Gutted as I did some practice and was expecting a descent finish.

Crazy end to the race :). I knew Renner in 3rd was carrying a penalty so I sat there thinking just keep clean and no penalties, and as I did that I got a penalty :). I stayed in 4th, you jumped to 3rd, Renner down to 5th. You never know what's gonna happen..... I was on HS at end and even with those could not overtake....

I was pushing my tyres too much to stay in front of you, was trying to get to the end on them. Just shows at Monaco you can be much quicker than the car in front but can’t overtake! After I let you past you did the fastest lap, 3 seconds faster than me.

Glad that race is over and we can do some proper racing again! Had 1 practice race yesterday afternoon and around 20laps on TT so knew I would be slow here. I damaged 1 front wing and had a quite race. Much better than I hoped for. Back up to 4th in the league so chuffed. Shame my teammate lost connection and didn’t get points, he’s quick and will be back @pete day

Got to agree, I would have been disappointed, especially the second incident. He might not have been aware on the first one, sometimes you miss the red close proximity arrows when driving a ferrari I’ve noticed!

You’ll come back strong, you got a title to fight for!
