1. I think the corner on the entrance to the swimming pool chicane will claim the most victims, As people carry so much speed, its easy to lose a wheel in that section. 
2. I think i would have to say Michemery, because im much better on my tyres (i think), so hopefully he would be struggling on his tyres ;)
3. Probably Neyo, because he is an incredibly smart driver, and he would probably force me into an error, which could cause me to lose more positions than just the 1.

1. For me, the last corner is the most difficult one cause there is really just one line you can take it. You can't really see the entry when you start to turn in for the corner. It's so easy to make a mistake there.
Also T8 before & T10 after the tunnel are dufficult to nail. You can gain or lose a lot of time there

2. Now, where I know Smithy gets nervous when I'm behind him, I say Smithy xD
To answer in a serious way..there is no one you want to have in front of you in monaco. You can't really overtake. Every overtake is a risk to crash. To make a move work, both driver need to be smart enough to let each other enough space.

3. RacingAtHome. He would show the "Divebomb of Death" xD I'm not too scared when someone is behind and puts pressure on me tbh

]Which corner in our Monaco GP do you think will claim the most victims (terminal crashes)?

At the top of the hill at the casino is very tricky because the barriers seem to stick out but tabac is the corner most likely to cause a crash. It's very fast and understeer/oversteer can easily send you flying.

Which driver would you most want in front of you with 7 laps to go? (not track specific)

Probably macca. Eveytime I've raced against him he's always fair and gives you room when trying to get past. Doesn't make it to easy though coz he's good at defending.

Which driver would you least want behind you with 7 laps to go? (not track specific)

Neyo! No matter what I never seem to be able to keep him behind me. Always quick in every stage of the race and always keeps the tyres in good shape.

First swimming pool chicane

NeYo - if it was him I'd be on for a good result 😂

I don't have a problem with any driver so I'll say Liam because his connection can have its moments xD

Hard to say, it's very important to stay focused all the time. Winner will be that person who finds the perfect balance of not pushing too hard and stay focused till the finish line.

Probably Ibbo, he would just let me through :)

The corner (whats its name again) thats between the green lights going off and that flag thing with with black and white squares on it. Oh I remember now its called Monaco baby.

Does it count if I say me? because I'd let me pass sadly even if was for first place, if your faster then me I'd let you go on to win and think in my head their going fast they could mess up and I'd still win.

Me again because letting you passed I may touch the grass and take you out. Accidently of course never want to course people to not have fun.

Lovely and hot here can hear thunder going off just a warning in case electric goes off it shouldn't and I am 100% racing.

You don't have to be sorry, WE are sorry for the inconvenience... We are still not sure why we have been infected, but we think it's from our host. I'll work on changing our host during or after summer because we just renewed our subscription :S

The casino section and turns 15 and 16.

Rikkurich, very fair and won't ruin your race like I would.

Neyo or Liam, they are both very intelligent and use this to get past

Q - P16
Did 1.13.8 which was a good banker lap. Then when I went back out I was behind NeYo who was on a lap then abandoned his lap. He knew I wasn't on a lap so he didn't need to move out of the way however I knew a car was behind me on a fast lap (which turned out to be Killer) and I was stuck behind NeYo thankfully I managed to go straight at the Nouvelle chicane before Killer got to me. However rejoining I didn't realise Agony was there as there wasn't any arrow either but when I did see the arrow I moved to left but Agony was already there, thankfully his damage wasnt terminal however he couldn't get his wing fixed. My worst moment in PRL so far, once again sorry for ruining your qualy and race mate. That lost me my 2nd run and for the 3rd just couldnt hook a lap up was 2tenths up on my time in S1 before I missed the hairpin and Porte up

R - P7
Made a great start to get upto 12th. Light passed me on lap 7 before he made a mistake and I got past. Moved upto P6 with a couple people disconnecting and pitting for dry tyres then a SC came out which lost me a position to RAH. Only just caught upto the SC when it went it! On the restart didn't have any pace car didn't feel right at all, RAH made a mistake that give me P7 after his mistake it meant P7 was the best and worst I could do given the car infront was long gone and the car behind was a lap down so given that until the end of the race I coasted round for the rest of the race about 2seconds of my pace (lifting in the swimming pool, braking earlier everywhere, running lean engine ended up finishing with +3.42 laps of fuel  :lol:)

Poor qualy with my worst moment in PRL but a good race with a bit of luck, great start and learning from last season to bring the car home to get the points give me my joint best result in PRL!

Congrats to Mich on his utter dominate win and Rikk on a very impressive 2nd and Liam once again keeping it clean in Monaco for a very good result!

Q- 7th.
I found an extra 3 tenths on my final run but I got caught in some traffic so I didn't end up improving but I would still have been in 7th. An ok qualifying overall.

R- 3rd.
I managed to make up a couple of places in to turn 1 mainly because gary got blocked by carre so I was up in 5th. I was struggling a lot for pace in the wet and once neyo disconected, killer and rikkurich went off in to the distance. I was acting as a mobile road block for f1racer in the wet so I just made sure I kept the car on the track and kept him behind. The safety car came out and it was perfect timing because I was able to get in to the pits and put on the SS and I gained a place from killer disconnecting. Once the safety car came in it was all a bit boring because I couldn't catch rikkurich and I was comfortably quicker than f1racer so I kept my concentration and got the car home in 3rd. Monaco has been a strong circuit for me in the past and today was no exception. I'm glad a got a podium and I've got mercedes back at the top for now. Catch you all next week.
