[F4] Round 5: Monaco Grand Prix

Round 5: Monaco Grand Prix

This weekend it's time for the most prestigious grand prix on the calendar, it's the Monaco Grand Prix. Monaco is the most challening track and everyone is chasing glory here, but a mistake is very easily made in a race of 39 laps through the narrow streets of Monte Carlo. Last week we saw Nicknockegan taking the win at Spain with F4 reserve Dane in 2nd and Steba420 in 3rd. after the first 4 rounds the difference between the top 3 and all other drivers is huge, 3rd place is 15 points clear of the driver in 4th so the others have a lot of points they need to catch up on.

Nice to see Haas change up the livery. Too bad it’s a very basic and unimaginative livery tho.

Yeah, actually surprised that I survived the race. Really didn't feel good at Spain , so 9th  place was decent.

Yeah, guess I could say so after 200 laps of practice in the past 13 days.

4. Favourite Monaco Grand Prix moment?
Ricciardo win 2018 and Verstappen overtaking multiple cars because he followed Vettel in 2015.

Qualifying - P13
Qualified in the grid slot that has BUS painted in front of it. A perfectly executed plan.

Race - P3
Started on the ultra softs so I'd be able to pit early and jump some hyper soft runners in the pit. Worked out perfectly as I jumped from P14 to P6 after all the pit stops. Got passed Lars after he got taken out, had a challenging lap trying to keep it out the walk while laughing, got passed Dane into sector 2 then was forced to stay behind Joruroo. Knew I didn't have the straight line speed so just kept the pressure on him hoping to force a penalty from him but ended in P4 once again. Survived Monaco so I'm happy.

(Got my first podium thanks to post race penalties. FINALLY!)
