Confirmed no-shows:

1) The much anticipated Monaco GP has now come and gone. Did you manage to stay out of trouble? How much would you have enjoyed a safety car period?

2) McLaren completely shocked the entire paddock with a 1-2 finish at Monaco after some rather poor showings earlier this season. Did you predict that either of these drivers had a shot at the win today? Is this a fluke or will we see these 2 American studs on the podium together again in a future race?

3) Up next we have Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve which needs a setup that allows for low downforce to be able to overtake on the 2 straightaways but also have enough bite to get through the back part of the track. Will we see a new polesitter and/or winner this coming Sunday? How close will the field be from top to bottom?

4) Do you use a wheel or a controller?

5) Ask @oo7_professional a question . . . about anything.

I’m shocked that didn’t end up in the wall and it was my first time complete Monaco’s Grand Prix without any damage, so I’m really happy about it. I was P2 the hole race so I didn’t wanna see the safety car at all.

Probably

1.5 sec from top to bottom. And yes a new pole sitter I think we are going to see

I managed to stay out of trouble for the first half of the race and then after that it all went wrong. A safety car might have been useful to keep up with the front pack cos my pace wasn't great but on the other hand it would've probably messed my rhythm of the track at that point
2) McLaren completely shocked the entire paddock with a 1-2 finish at Monaco after some rather poor showings earlier this season. Did you predict that either of these drivers had a shot at the win today? Is this a fluke or will we see these 2 American studs on the podium together again in a future race?

I knew that they both had a good chance of getting a good result going into the race and they made the most of the pace they had so fair play. I don't think it was a fluke and there is a possibility they could be in the top 3 again if they manage to have clean races.
3) Up next we have Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve which needs a setup that allows for low downforce to be able to overtake on the 2 straightaways but also have enough bite to get through the back part of the track.

The field is very close meaning everyone's pace is generally track dependent, so yeah I do think we'll see a new polesitter. The field will be separated by 1.2s
4) Do you use a wheel or a controller?

What sort of music do you teach and what's your favourite type of music?

Not at all.. Actually I did till I wanted to check my tire wear and hit the wall.. From then on everything just got worse and worse. A Safety car would have helped me surely on my "3 wing" strategy

They were fast at monaco, so they can be fast everywhere ;)

1) The much anticipated Monaco GP has now come and gone. Did you manage to stay out of trouble? How much would you have enjoyed a safety car period?

Stayed completely out of trouble, surprisingly! Easily the best league race I've driven and managed. A safety car would have been the worst case scenario for me.

2) McLaren completely shocked the entire paddock with a 1-2 finish at Monaco after some rather poor showings earlier this season. Did you predict that either of these drivers had a shot at the win today? Is this a fluke or will we see these 2 American studs on the podium together again in a future race?

I actually was feeling confident of a podium, but I'll take the win. I was predicting I was going to be starting around 4th - 7th and would just wait for a couple of guys to falter in front of me but the outcome was much better. I wouldn't say this was necessarily a fluke but it is going to be difficult to keep high finishes up due to the closeness of this field.

3) Up next we have Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve which needs a setup that allows for low downforce to be able to overtake on the 2 straightaways but also have enough bite to get through the back part of the track. Will we see a new polesitter and/or winner this coming Sunday? How close will the field be from top to bottom?

I say there's a high likelihood of a new polesitter and possibly new winner this week. I also think we should bring our galoshes. I'm gonna say from 1st to last will be separated by 1.2 seconds.

4) Do you use a wheel or a controller?

Logitech G29

5) Ask @oo7_professional a question . . . about anything.

How long have you watched Formula 1 and who originally got you interested in it?

5) Ask @oo7_professional a question . . . about anything.
How much time do you put in every week to practice for the race?
Depends on the week, but usually I do around 3-5 hours. Sometimes a little more sometimes less. Don’t practice everyday. Most weeks, Monday/Wednesday/Thursday/Saturday a little and Sunday before the race. This week i was only able to practice Sunday after Monaco, Monday and Tuesday. Been out of town and won’t get back home until Sunday morning so I’ll try and do what I can this race.
5) Ask @oo7_professional a question . . . about anything.
What sort of music do you teach and what's your favourite type of music?
I teach 11-14 year old. Called Middle School here in America. I start them on instruments(flute, Clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, etc) and teach them how to play and then work with a band of all instruments when they get into their 2nd and 3rd year playing those instruments. My favorite type is Music is light jazz/hipster kinda Music. Like “Igcognito”, “Snarky Puppy”, etc.

Did you get annoyed being stuck behind me the first stint in Monaco? :D
Absolutely!!! Tried to get a good start and get ahead of you since it was your first league race with us, I predicted you might hold me up a little, so I tried and get past you in Turn 1 but that didn’t work out too well. I wasn’t overly aggressive in trying to pass you, was definitely coasting into corners riding the brakes a little trying to get the best possible run into the tunnel and out of La Rascasse but never got close enough. Looking forward to more on track battles with you. You seem like a very fair and hard racer :)
How long have you watched Formula 1 and who originally got you interested in it?
My dad is all about cars and F1 also. Since the day I was born as a baby I was in his arms watching F1. From what i can remember, me being 4-5-6 years old coming back from Church on Sundays and watching Michael Schumacher battle Mika Hakkinen sitting on my dads lap while my mom made lunch. It was always cheering for Ferrari and Michael. So I was raised with Ferrari being in my blood and to this day there is something about Ferrari that connects me to it. That’s down to my dad “brainwashing” me hahaha.

@Bankai_Bullett I can race today but not 100% sure if I can be ready at 8. Can you guys wait 5 min for me?

I'm karting this morning and hoping that everything will be done in time for me to get home but if I don't make it, I don't make it ... if I'm not on by 8:05 then just send me some invites and I'll miss Q

1) The much anticipated Monaco GP has now come and gone. Did you manage to stay out of trouble? How much would you have enjoyed a safety car period?

Nope, binned it too many times. My front row start gone to waste and got so furious that after 3 crashes I retired it in the pits. Would have loved to have seen the SC for obvious reasons.

2) McLaren completely shocked the entire paddock with a 1-2 finish at Monaco after some rather poor showings earlier this season. Did you predict that either of these drivers had a shot at the win today? Is this a fluke or will we see these 2 American studs on the podium together again in a future race?

Most races aren't won by having a fluky race, so they'll be around the top in the coming races for sure.

3) Up next we have Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve which needs a setup that allows for low downforce to be able to overtake on the 2 straightaways but also have enough bite to get through the back part of the track. Will we see a new polesitter and/or winner this coming Sunday? How close will the field be from top to bottom?

Hopefully me :p but I doubt that will happen with my luck this season.

4) Do you use a wheel or a controller?

A wheel that once famously broke it's clamp at Monaco of all tracks.

5) Ask @oo7_professional a question . . . about anything.

A year on, would you rather stick with Trump or have gone with Clinton instead?

Seems I forgot to do the questions this week... better late than never I guess.

1) The much anticipated Monaco GP has now come and gone. Did you manage to stay out of trouble? How much would you have enjoyed a safety car period?

I enjoyed the race, but I am slightly annoyed that I couldn’t put the lap together in qualifying so I could’ve challenged for the win but that been the story for me the whole season, I haven’t put a lap together in quali yet.

2) McLaren completely shocked the entire paddock with a 1-2 finish at Monaco after some rather poor showings earlier this season. Did you predict that either of these drivers had a shot at the win today? Is this a fluke or will we see these 2 American studs on the podium together again in a future race?

It was a surprise considering the performances beforehand but that was unlucky, they do have pace.

3) Up next we have Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve which needs a setup that allows for low downforce to be able to overtake on the 2 straightaways but also have enough bite to get through the back part of the track. Will we see a new polesitter and/or winner this coming Sunday? How close will the field be from top to bottom?

I think the field will be close considering it’s a short lap. Setup is tricky here not gonna lie.

4) Do you use a wheel or a controller?


I use a T300 RS with T3PA pedals.
