Pre-Race Interview
1. How was your race last week at Spain?
2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?
3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week?  I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.

1. How was your race last week at Spain?
It was average, after qualy I was certainly ok with how my own race turned out after my first pit stop. Had some hilarious moments and some team stuff which was a good change!

2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?
2 SC 3 VSC and a Renault on pole!

3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week? I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.
Well I think Vettel just expected something that didn't happen, then went dirty and 10 seconds is laughable, if I did that in t his league I would be so happy with only a 10 second penalty. Until the final lap of the SC we really don't need to be touching tips.

Dental issues from you gritting your teeth at not winning :p

1. How was your race last week at Spain?
I DNF'd so not very good. Couldnt see when they car infront of my braked because of a group of 3 ghosted (disconnected) cars was right in between me and him. These disconnections are why I am in favor of the new ping rule.

2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?
At least 3 or 4 is what i believe will happen. I expect a lot of safety cars not from collisions with each other but just small mistakes that will put you into the wall in Monaco.

3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week? I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.
I feel Vettel should have been black flagged for what he did. FIA set a dangerous precedent that drivers will not get serious punishment for intentionally crashing into other drivers.

Pre-Race Interview
1. How was your race last week at Spain?  Not bad and not good.  I definitely picked the wrong pit/tyre strategy.  A one stop did not work using the hard compound tyres.
2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?  Hard to say, but Monaco means NO mistakes!
3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week?  I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.  Vettel deserved what he got.  That was totally uncalled for and could have broken not only his front suspension, buy ruined Hamilton's race as well.

2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race? Over, 2 safety cars, 2 VSC's easily
3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week? I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely. Im a vettel fan and im completely agree with everyone saying he needs a race ban, completely uncalled for.

My game crashed :( And my teammate's game crashed too :( We feel like it was something on the server side that kicked us off.
2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?
At least one safety car and one or two VSC at minimum.

I agree with most people that what Vettel did was stupid.

My best race of the year so far, considering all my races have been terrible. Might have actually finished in the points if I didn't get an erroneous penalty for not following blue flags when there was no one around who I would have needed to let past. Gotta love Codemasters...

2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?

1 SC, 1 VSC, 15 pit stops for broken wings

3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week?  I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.  

Vettel is a hotheaded idiot and I cannot believe he did not get DQ'd for that crap.

There is a good chance I will miss the race this week due to a work meeting. Currently trying to get out of it, but no such luck yet. Hopefully I'll see you all on the racetrack tomorrow night!

Got disconnected from the game

I will not be participating in this race so its hard to say but i'd imagine there will be plenty

Hamilton probably should not have braked so hard at the exit of a corner as a professional driver he should know that Vettel would have had a hard time reacting in time with that being said Vettel should not have acted the way he did and it was very unprofessional

Got pole position then got disconnected to main menu on race start... FeelsBadMan 

2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?
Based on previous races, I will have to say over 1 safety car.

3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week?  I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.
I feel that both were partially in the wrong for the incident. We can definitely learn a lesson from this, I have seen numerous times where people have run into the backs of other cars during the safety car in the first races of our season

1. How was your race last week at Spain?---- Not bad actually. Didn't get taken out and was leading for a while.
2. This week we are in Monaco, over/under 1 safety car for this race?----- 1SC 3VSC and a pitlane full of pitstops
3. How did you feel about the exchange between Vettel and Hamilton under the safety car last week? I feel like we can learn a similar lesson in our league under safety car conditions of not following too closely.----I think it was a stupid childish move he pulled on Hamilton. That being said i think the 10 second stop go (30 second in pit lane total) would have had more of an impact if Hamilton had won the race and it'd been dealt earlier in the race. I think it was between a hefty time penalty and a black flag.

Great race everybody. Way to keep it clean. This was by far my best result but i'm still frustrated that I messed up my last lap so bad and threw away my chance at my first victory.

These few clips here summed up my race.  I'm just happy that my 2 damaged wings weren't self inflicted because I have taken my own wing off practicing here many times:

Hey Nick, sorry I was in your way on lap 19, I saw you coming and tried to move over as fast as I could, but it was not far enough obviously:(

your car warped after that though and you were still ahead of me for many laps after that. Some kind of lag was going on there.

I looked at my video and it appeared as if you passed me on another lap all together, or at least on a different section of the track.  I will post parts of it so you can see what it all looked like to me.  However, there was a driver behind me that was warping past me as well.  It got so bad on one lap that he hit my car and knocked out my front suspension, but the car was traveling at near light speed so I could not tell who warped past me while in game..., but it did not happen with any other cars.  I was spun on the first lap and by the time I got straightened out, I was a 1/2 a lap behind everyone, so I did pass a few drivers in order to get up to 7th place. On lap 37 of 38  I was distracted for just a second and hit the guardrail at the swimming pool hard enough to take out my front suspension.  I really don't think Codemasters has all the bugs worked out of the P2P connection.  Heck, I remember back in 2013 and 2014 when only a very few drivers would lag.  Mostly South American folks.  I checked my ping/latency and it is well within acceptable limits.  That being said, we are supposed to be getting a pure fiber optic internet here fairly soon.  Up to one full Gb.   I'll believe that when I see it:)
