Monaco GP - Monte Carlo (Sunday, january 13th, 2013) – Race Report, by Sexy Brigadeiro Rolling Eyes & pictures by Arek jocolor

Once again I don't have much to say about the race - other than what the pics and the captions show and tell, so... let me just point these quick little things:

- Tom finally won the Monaco GP...
- lau got the Championship lead...
- Jaguar also got the Constructors' Table lead...
- This is just a meaningless sentence...
- Only 7 drivers (out of 21) actually crossed the finish line - and from these, only 3 actually completed the 39 laps...
- Leave a comment below telling everyone what is your favorite ice cream flavor...
- Send me a zillion dollars paycheck if your right arm and right leg are on the right side of your body...
- Why are you still reading this? Go check the pics and read its captions instead!...

'Checkered flag is out and so am I!'

Arek's Slideshow: (Don't be a juvenil! Watch it in HD (720p) and full screen, pliss!)

Monaco Pics:


PRE-RACE
Arek: Just Monaco. Nothing more to add Razz
Sexy: Hmm, ok...


PRE-RACE
Arek: Just Monaco. Nothing more to add Razz
Sexy: Err... you already said that... Rolling Eyes


PRE-RACE
Arek: Just Monaco. Nothing more to add Razz
Sexy: Very creative caption... Neutral


PRE-RACE
Arek: Just Monaco. Nothing more to add Razz
Sexy: Are you a robot, or something?! scratch


LAP 1
Arek: Grid right before the lights come off. Tom McKay on the pole position.
Sexy: "Just Monaco. Nothing more to add Razz" - ...oh, sorry... I was just brainwashed...


LAP 1
Arek: Tom keeps his lead in T1. Fortunately we don't have any big crash which is always a threat in Monaco. Bober just lost a front wing for his own wish...
Sexy: Yes, a pretty clean start from what was expected, I admit. Congrats to all drivers! Smile


LAP 1
Arek: The pack goes past the Monte Carlo Casino.
Sexy: Maybe I should've parked there... I'd probably have had a better luck playing cards...


LAP 1
Arek: Another classic F1 shoot. View from old Grand Holet, I don't remember the current name... Razz Otti and Adrian S Shole fightting very hard for the 7th place.
Sexy: I guess this corner used to be called Lowens or something like that, but I may/might be wrong... Anyway... who KERS?! Razz


LAP 1
Arek: At F1 GP in 2004 or sth around that there was a crash with a Jaguar car, which had a special front wing with some precious stones on it, as an advertisment or some jewelery shop or sth. Of course that wing fell off and got crashed Smile (If you guys remmeber that incident better please let us know in comments below). Now I'm not sure if Arnie and Sven are having any precious things on aborad (maybe except their balls) Razz but Arnie still lost 6 places dropping down from 12th to 18th which was painful...
Sexy: Cool story, bro! Smile


LAP 1
Arek: Tom leads, then Alex Hill, Arek and Joe McLaggen.
Sexy: ...followed by lau, Grisu, Adrian and Otti - you lazy juvenil...


LAP 1
Arek: A small gap behind is a bigger group with Lau (5th) Grisu, Adrian, ADI and Soutie.
Sexy: Err.. you forgot Dildo Boy between Adrian and ADI...


LAP 1
Arek: Bober goes to the pits for a new wing.
Sexy: Great way to start a GP... pitting for a new wing on lap 1... Razz


LAP 2
Arek: Raikko (14th) crashes into the wall during the fight vs Luft_inspektor.
Sexy: I saw that crash from my cockpit and I must admit: I wasn't sad for him, since I earned 1 more place with that - lol (sorry, raikkO!.. and thanks!) Razz


LAP 2
Arek: Otti (7th) and ADI during a serious incident caused by lag... Sad Both of them lose many places.
Sexy: I 'saw' that lag too and I thought to myself: I'm glad I'm at the tunnel and not having a car right next to me! - and then I wondered if that lag caused someone to crash... well, as soon as I got out of the tunnel, I saw the smoke from their cars and found out the answer was 'yes'...


LAP 3
Arek: Denis overtakes Soutie and takes his 7th place. Adrian takes adventage of that and also make a pass. In the background Jure and Luft fighting each other for the 10th place.
Sexy: ...and I was right behind the Jordans, AKA 'Team Croatia'. Smile


LAP 3
Arek: Grisu (6th) during an impressive long slide. For drivers who don't use TC there are "little suprises" like that from time to time, which are completly unknown for the others Razz
Sexy: Well, I have enough 'little surprises' myself as well in every race, so...


LAP 3
Arek: Two "hornets" are still fighting very hard. This time Luft wins the battle and gets 10th place.
Sexy: An old lady asked: Why are the taxis so fast here in Monaco? I wave to them and they never stop to me!... - true story. Rolling Eyes


LAP 3
Arek: The end of the race for ADI. Otti jumps up to 15th.
Sexy: Poor ADI. Had a race almost as bad as mine in terms of 'luck'... - yes, I said ALMOST...


LAP 3
Arek: Wallagada visits the Monte Carlo harbor Smile
Sexy: Nah, he just wanted to talk to Nicole Scherzinger on that fancy boat... Careful, Wallace, Lewis is coming after you now!... Razz


LAP 4
Arek: Jure even gets higher to have a better view on the coast Smile All that mess is caused by Sexy's ass Razz
Sexy: Yes. It was all on purpose and planned to happen exactly like that. I'm a great strategist and have a 6th sense - I even predicted that Jure was going to brake late... I'm glad it's all on the replay... Cool


LAP 5
Arek: Soutie overtakes Adrian in La Rascasse taking his 8th place.
Sexy: I must admit I thought that was going to be the 'big fight for the Title', but so far... Anyway... lau is actually as strong as them and I'm glad Joe is also being that strong - it's great to have more drivers fighting for the throphy, of course! Smile


LAP 8
Arek: Joe (4th) still tries everything to pass Arek but it's impossible Wink
Sexy: Let's be honest: you can only overtake in this track if you're waaaaay faster than the guy in front of you, OR if the guy in front of you ALLOWS you to pass (or make a mistake)... - BTW, I'm glad you used the new t-cam view for the McLarens I sent you - nice pic showing Joe's helmet! Smile


LAP 8
Arek: Tom McKay in the pits. Alex Hill takes the lead.
Sexy: When I grow up I also want to be an invisible mechanic... Jah. What a Face


LAP 9
Arek: Arek (2nd) and Joe give a good example of hard but full of respect battle Cool Joe sill is not able to pass.
Sexy: As I was saying...


LAP 10
Arek: Joe decided to pit to have a chance to pass Arek on fresh tyres but he comes out right behind Denis you can see on the pic. The fight with him costed him much time during the next few laps.
Sexy: Well, he did the right thing anyway IMO, by playing with the cards he had on his hands at that time... If it was hard to overtake on track, he should've tried to do it with his pit stop strategy. Being caught behind a slower car (in this case, Denis) couldn't be predicted - he needed to try something new and so he did. Unfortunately, it just didn't work... It happens... Smile


LAP 11
Arek: Joe overtakes Denis but does it off the track, so has to give his position back to Denis.
Sexy: I've always appreciated fair driving. Very nice, Joe! Smile


LAP 12
Arek: Tom who after his pit stop found himself out behind Grisu, tries to pass him behind the tunnel and he makes it! Grisu locks his tyres and spins.
Sexy: I bet those 12 year-old retarded teenagers screamed with joy anyway... - yo, biebs, stop showing off! ¬¬'


LAP 13
Arek: Antonio Hreljanovic defends his 15th place againt Raikko.
Sexy: Congrats Tony for, even being lapped, being able to complete one of the hardest races in the world - not even all point finishers did it, so... cheers, mate, also for the 12th place, your best one so far this season and I guess also in your League carreer, right?! Anyway.. just keep it up and your first points will come soon as well! Smile


LAP 14
Arek: The end of the race for Otti...
Sexy: And that's me taking T1... Once again I must admit... I had a smile on my face when I saw Dildo Boy hitting that wall - chi-chang! another place for me! Very Happy


LAP 15
Arek: Arek (2nd) has a bad exit from that turn which lets Lau and Tom to do the pass in the tunnel. Then Lau and Arek go to the pits.
Sexy: You were just practicing to do the same a few laps later and giving me that blue flag penalty, right?! Ha, I knew it!!! Evil or Very Mad


LAP 15
Arek: The current leader Alex Hill in the pits.
Sexy: Alex did an amazing job in the quali and also in the race! It's a shame he made a mistake at the end and also ran out of fuel... Still finished in 4th place and scored another 12 points, so it wasn't so bad... except for the fact that he could've actually won the race, of course, but why worry about such a small detail?!.. Razz


LAP 16
Arek: Bad view for Joe. Arek comes out right in front of him...
Sexy: ...and the pit exit actually gives some advantage to the driver coming out of the pits in T1... ¬¬'


LAP 17
Arek: Tom leaves the pits for the second time and rejoin right in front of Lau in the 3rd place. Alex jumps up to the lead once again. Grisu takes the second place.
Sexy: I like pizza.


LAP 17
Arek: Joe finally overtakes Arek and takes the 5th place.
Sexy: Well, THAT overtake was just because Joe is a GREAT driver and... you're a juvenil. Smile


LAP 18
Arek: Blackfox (14th) had a bad luck during the start having an incident with Bober (not Black's fault) which costed him dropping down to the very end of the pack, which is terrible especially if it comes to Monaco.
Sexy: Don't be so dramatic! At least he finished in 8th place and scored 4 points - his very first points in the season so far, after 5 races - so.. he did a pretty good job! Smile


LAP 19
Arek: Another nice example of a good battle. This time between Grisu and Tom fighting each other for the 2nd place. But to be honest Grisu had no chances due to his worn tyres.
Sexy: Girus fans were still screaming of joy... ¬¬'


LAP 20
Arek: A while later his tyres are too worn to fight against Lau.
Sexy: lau received a death threat after Portugal for 'daring' to overtake Biebs and now he got another one... He said he is usually less scared about the mafia guys than about Girus fans... Suspect


LAP 20
Arek: Arnoldunhu (11th), Sven and Luft_inspektor.
Sexy: ...and I had a good gap in front of them then...


LAP 21
Arek: Sexy vs Adrian for the 9th place. Sexy makes a pass.
Sexy: Adrian let me go. My huds showed him 1 lap behind and then a little later it showed him on the same lap as I (actually fighting for the position) - some weird shit! I assumed that happened to him too, because it was too easy to pass (not bragging) and then I wondered if he had worn tyres or something... The fact is that after I passed him and thought I would open a gap or something, he started to attack me and actually overtook me back (he seemed slower than me while in front of me and faster than me while behind me - I was like WTF?!)... Then we started fighting and overtook each other another 2 or 3 times until...


LAP 22
Arek: Tom Mckay (2nd) makes a mistake and spins! Lau takes his place.
Sexy: ...until...


LAP 23
Arek: Adrian S Shole touches Sexy (9th) from behind causing his spin. Adrian gives his position back but it doesn't change the fact Sexy lost 2 places for Arnie and Sven.
Sexy: ...until... THIS... - and I know he is a great driver and obviously didn't do it on purpose (and it was nice of him to give me the place back), but still... I just realized things were too good to be true to me until then so... jah, bad luck strikes again - yay! Neutral


LAP 24
Arek: Bad time for Sexy. This time he suffers DT given by the game for ignoring blue flags! Razz
Sexy: Actually on this lap I was going out of the pits with a brand new wing caused by hitting Sven who crashed right in front of me... I got the DT 1 or 2 laps later when YOU failed to overtake me when I braked to let you go... seu juvenil - GRRR!!! Evil or Very Mad


LAP 25
Arek: Joe McLaggen (7th) spin almost second time in a row losing his chance for a good result. In this spin he saved his 7th place, but two laps earlier in the same place Denis took his adventage of that passing him. Meanwhile Adrian goes to the pits for a new front wing.
Sexy: Semms my bad luck got to Joe as well... Sorry, McLaren team... MY bad... Crying or Very sad


LAP 27
Arek: Arek who got his mechanics right behind that wall saw Neo who yelled to him: Hey that wall it's just a part of Matrix! It doesn't exist in the real word! Come on cross it and you're gonna save your time!" Right... Razz
Sexy: You were trolled by him... Good job, juvenil!... jocolor


LAP 28
Arek: Tom (3rd) in the pit stop for the 3rd time. Meanwhile on the track Grisu (4th) is lapping Sven.
Sexy: Even the Pizza Delivery Guy could've lapped him too... Razz


LAP 30
Arek: lau (2nd) in the pits. Tom takes the 2nd place behind of Alex Hill.
Sexy: lau was just making a quick visit to ADI - Hi, amice! Smile


LAP 31
Arek: Heavy crash with multiple spins of Alex Hill (1st).
Sexy: Poor China Boy... No


LAP 32
Arek: After very long pit stop he rejoin the track right in front of Arek in the 5th place. Tom McKay takes the lead!
Sexy: He did well in coming back! He earned 1 place before the race ended! Smile


LAP 35
Arek: Arek (5th) makes a mistake and Denis passes him.
Sexy: Good job!... Razz


LAP 37
Arek: Joe, who droped down after his 3rd pit stop and two spins several laps earlier, overtakes Soutie during the fight for 7th. Half lap later they both have to retire because of... lack of fuel.
Sexy: That was also unfortunate... I don't know if Joe made a 39 laps test to be sure about how much fuel to use, but I remember telling him before the race to use at least 95L or even 100L just be sure... I don't know how much he used, but if he used 95 and it wasn't enough, then I feel guilty... Embarassed


LAP 38
Arek: Alex Hill overtakes Grisu (he took the whole distance of the race with just 1 pit stop) on the penultimate lap and takes the 4th place.
Sexy: I was going for 1 stop only too. Not hard if you use Hards+Hards, although it obviously makes you pretty slow, but... sometimes it's worthy! Smile


LAP 39 - LAST LAP!
Arek: Arek (6th) ran of fuel as well and joins Joe Razz Meanwhile Blackfox overtakes Sven and jumps up from 11th to 8th between 2 corners! Smile
Sexy: Is it just me or there's something wrong with that Toyota's front wing?.. scratch


LAP 39 - LAST LAP!
Arek: Tom McKay wins the Monaco GP!!!
Sexy: Seeking it for three seasons and now it finally came...


LAP 39 - LAST LAP!
Arek: Lau is 2nd!
Sexy: ...and he takes the Drivers' Championship lead as a 'bonus'...


LAP 39 - LAST LAP!
Arek: Denis takes the 3rd place!
Sexy: Privet skavurska, perestroika Putin vodka Lada, Kremlin tovarisch! Very Happy

Once again I would like to say that it's hard to please everyone at once but I did my best Razz BTW Sexy is a noob and this is not a big achievement to pass him Razz

I hit the correct date of that incident of Jaguar straight from my memory. I didn't check anything writting it, I'm a really pro Cool I heard a legend that diamond felt off from the wing and wasn't been found after the incident, but maybe it was just an imagination of our polish comentators one year later Razz
