Hate to say.... as a Pad racer, not having the time to do the race this weekend is probably the best way it could've turned out.
So sad seeing this track was so amazing to drive on past games, but now you 100% need a wheel to enjoy that track #paytoenjoy

Qualifying: P4. Did a 1:08:8 something pretty early in the session, but crashed my front right off turning in too early in to the casino being 2 tenths up on my time. Could've improved a bit then, but was close to what I was doing in practice so pretty good time anyways.

Race: Was a bit tentative in the first stint after my quali-crash but kept up the pace decently to stay in 4th. Couldn't keep up quite the pace I expected when I tried to overcut people on the hypersoft stint hoping they'd get stuck in traffic, but since they didn't really it was never gonna work regardless if I'd had a couple tenths more pace/lap. Pitted on lap 11 or 12 to the ultras and came out in P6, just a tenth or a few behind @Schnixel and that's where I kept my car for the rest of the race pretty much. Felt I had a little more pace but never enough to get a decent run on him so I kept pushing and trying to pressure him into some mistakes to get a chance to get past but he kept it clean all race and made sure he got good exits onto any decent overtaking opportunities. Sorta tried putting my nose in a bit at times too but the overtake was never really on there, mostly up the hill after T1. Did follow schnixel through on his overtake on @SlimboDude with probably one of the most argy-bargy-scruffy but kinda-sorta-clean moves I've done in a while but I'll take it. Positive spin on it: It was kind off an overtake around the outside of the hairpin.

Congrats to the podium-sitters though and GG to Schnixel.

Race report

Qualifying: I got my first pole here by a small margin! I didn't think I could pull it off but i just managed to hit to close to my pb that sealed the deal.

Race: I had a horrible start and @SlimboDude had a great start and cleared me before we got to t1. I just managed my tires for the first stint so I can stretch HS tires. Around lap 6, I was able to pass slimbo on the outside of t1 and pulled a 4 second lead on 2nd by the end of the lap but @xXVik-StarRxX was closing in fast. My tires were getting worse and worse every lap and vic was closing fast so at the end of lap 8, I made a pitstop for SS and was able to manage the gap to second and maintain the net lead for the rest of the race. So happy to get P1 in Monaco. I was hungry for a win after the Spain dnf. Glad it worked out and cant wait for Canada! Congrats to everyone on the podium!

I dont know why I was so fast on the HS. in practice they were dropping off at lap 6/7. On Sunday they decided to go 9 laps and I could've gone longer if I wanted but I didn't wanna risk it lol

Race Report:
Qualifying - P12
Went with the ultras as I really didn't like the hypers in race trim. The lap was around what I was doing in practice, would've been nice to get into the 09s but ah well.

Race - P9
Managed to gain 2 positions through T1 as a gap opened up in front of me, but then Eren got me back through Mirabeau. On lap 2, he got damage at Tabac, I was hoping he'd pit but he didn't, I had a slight lapse of concentration and I clipped my rear on the inside of Anthony Noghes. I spun round and had half a red wing. So had to do a full lap with that and then came in to pit for supers. Was basically cruising around on my own for the rest of the race on those tyres trying not to overheat them and hoping for some carnage up ahead. Nothing much happened and in the end it was P9. Not an amazing race but I'll take points around Monaco.
