Re: 2018 Monaco Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Well, here we go.. for me, this is the most boring race of the year.

It's such a shame that there is no way in hell that this race will ever be off the calendar.

But, as an F1 fan I'll have to grin and bear it this weekend :)

Re: 2018 Monaco Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

I wonder what the difference in lap time will be between the hypersoft and ultrasoft.

Will anybody chance a Q2 lap on ultras?

Just re watching the race. Ferraris claim Seb's second stop was slow due to holding the car is false. They were still trying to put the wheel on when Perez had passed.

Re: Time to talk about Grosjean

I remember a driver that did just fine as a rookie against an Alonso at his peak. It's OK to be beat by Alonso, but Vandoorne is simply nowhere compared to Alonso. If he were close, it'd be acceptable. But that's not a case. It's hard to judge. So much more is expected of rookies now but in reality...

Re: Who was at fault, Ricciardo or Verstappen? (Baku 2018)

The root cause of this was the second move - which was heading away from the racing line. Regardless of how "minor" the move was, it still didn't leave racing room. This then caused Dan's loss of downforce, coupled with the dusty side of the track. Personally I reckon he'd have made the corner and w...

I feel the series is being held back by the tracks - I'd love to see them at Silverstone, or maybe in Hungary. Any track where it isn't a street circuit is what I really want..

So it's pretty much nailed on for Stroll and Sirotkin for 2018. Let's hope that one of them can set a car up properly.. Setting up the car is not a priority..just bring in the money into Williams account. It's a very short term solution though if they are lacking in constructors funds next year.
