|"I am very happy with this result also because I closed the gap on the Coca Cola Kiwi Virtual drivers. I and Patrick de Wit had a close race on the first half of the race until he made a very bad mistake. After that I just brought the car home.|
Thanks Royduck :) "
|"Wow! A 2nd at Monaco, this really came as a surprise! Red Bull gave me wings today. Thanks to my teammate Schmali I had a great handling car, I made no mistakes and this is the outcome. Had a nice duel with Hirrle. I could overtake him in the chicane after the tunnel from the outside where he was very fair giving us both enough room. Monaco is a special place and to be on the podium here is something unique as this track is so challenging and unforgiving. Thanks to my team and our sponsors! Now I want to celebrate!"|
|""Incredible race. For 27 Laps I had David Greco behind me, including a train of other drivers. But he was cleary faster and although he made his first pitstop some laps earlier, he was just in front of me when I came out of the pits after my first stop. He was battling with Kolbe but after a few laps he lost his front wing and had to pit. Well, then Dominik Binz was behind me for some laps but he had a quite good speed on the straight and passed me nicely after the tunnel. I backed off a little not to risk a crash. I saw a blue front wing then after the chicane and unfortunately it was Pat's, he couldn't finish the race. In the last laps I had Sebastian Schmalenbach behind me but I managed to maintain 3rd position until the end.|
I think it was the hardest race I ever did, and my first Monaco race in FSR, so I'm very happy with the result although of course it looks a bit weird now that I scored the points for Ash and not for Twister, but it was a surprise also for me that I finished. Bruno was the fastest today and absolutely deserves the victory.
I want to thank my team and especially Joakim Bengtsson for all his efforts he is doing for the team, and for his fantastic setup.""
|"The practice sessions were very helpful. We were definatly on the pace for pole position. But technical problems made it impossible for us to post a lap time. It is frustrating to see, that each weekend, one of the Red Bull Kiwi Virtual cars do have problems. Most of the time the problems occured at my teammate Dominik, but now it happened to me. I don't have to tell you, how hard it is in Monaco to start from the last position.|
On lap 4 or 5 I came wide in Saint Devote. I hit the barriers with my left rear wheel. From that moment on, the car was slightly pulling to the left. According to the lap times, it made us at least a half of a second slower than our real race pace.
Well, starting from last position and finishing 4th here in Monaco is ok for me. Also if you keep in mind our handling problems with the car. Of course I am a bit disappointed that it wasn't enough for a podium, especially when you finish just about 0.08 of a second behind that position. But Dennis deserved it. There was no real chance for me to overtake him, except 2-3 situations. But this situations would have been to riscy and I didn't want to loose that 4th place. Anyway, now, Monaco is over and we have to focus on the next track.
|"After the penalty it was an expected hard race for me, traffic, traffic, traffic. But IÂ´m happy to have finished without losing a wing, so I got at least a few points. FPS and connection was very good here, after going down to 800x600 16 bit and directx8 lol. |
I could have been on P3 for sure, but Patrick de Wit was once in front of me and drove very dangerous with a broken suspension. Admin should have take him out of the race or he shouldnÂ´t fight for position in this case. I lost in a few laps maybe 25sec behind him and he braked sometimes 50 meters earlier. It was so dangerous and whatever you say Patrick, that was not ok...
Congrats to my little Brunoduck and of course for my teammates for their very good races. Also thx to Dom or Seb, who let me pass at the beginning. But it was really not nessecary!;)
seeya next time, going to party!;)
|"This was a really tough race. I did a good qually and started P5 after Roy's penalty. The start was clean and I could hang on to Hirrle and Greco quite easily. I had a few opportunities to attack, but I found the risk involved to great so I just tried to pressure David into making a mistake, he didn't so I had to stay behind. |
The car got a little strange on worn tires, I lost grip at the front, which is very unusual so I had a moment in the final turn where I lost my line and clipped the barrier a little, no damage but Binz didn't wait long to take advantage of my mistake and I lost a position.
Then I had another incident at Tabac, the same lap Pat had his first accident at nouvelle chicane. I saw a wing and thought it looked like a Twister one. I lost concentration and ran wide and again had a small touch with the barrier. No damage this time either, but Kolbe could move through.
After that I was caught up in Roy's and Patrick's fight. It was really madness out there, I made a few half hearted attempts to capitalise but it was way to dangerous so I backed off. After my last pitstop I was quite alone on track and I had a quite boring 3rd stint just counting the laps and maintaining my gap to David. Kolbe was running away in P5 and I couldn't catch him so I just drove the car home to score Twister's only points for the weekend. I'm happy to have finished the race in the points, but I'm a little disappointed with myself for making the mistakes that allowed Binz and Kolbe to pass me. "

|"Not bad, really not bad. Obviously I would have been happy to repeat the last year's performance, but this is not the right year for me to win races, because I lack practice and you can't win races without practice. I had a single test session here, many days ago, and I was late to the race today, so I had to start from the last position and without a single lap done in race trim. The first laps I was only interested in getting a feeling of the car and of the track, then I started to go better. Unfortunately I lost too much time during the very first laps, so I wasn't able to get a better final position, but I'm happy to be in the points! It's not easy here in Monaco, expecially when you start from the last position!"|
|"After a very bad qualification in race i have a good pace and at the end in the last laps i tried to overtake David for 7th position but i hitted barrier and lost suspension and some positions.....next time for my first points here.-)"|
|"I did very little practice (280 laps counting non-finished laps) so I knew I couldn't fight for any points.|
I focused on consistancy and 1-stop, hoping there will be some incidents. There weren't enough :D
I damaged a bit the car after dodd's spin, but it didn't hurt too much.
I'm still happy with another top-10 position, a good fight with kasimatis who was faster ;)
Congrats to Bruno, and of course Sebastian who did an amazing race!"
|"Retired 72/78 from last position, i guess not my lucky day :-( |
Good job there Bruno !! at least we have something to celebrate :-)"
|""Did a realy good quali run P7 isnt bad fore me. |
Very good start and i was on P6, with Dom and Roy behind me, but after a few laps i made a stupid mistake, to much on the gaspedal and i spin. No damage and i repeat the race on P11. from then on i was pusing like hell especialy the last stint i overtook a few people, never thought that was possible but i did. And when i was behind David Greco who was on P7 i was putting some pressure on him. i think he was having a damaged car. but i did a few fastest laps from my self. but then i spin coming up the strait at start finish line and i hit the wall lost front wing and stal the engine.
And that was it, the first race after 25 races in WC finishing and in the points. but ahh well this wasnt my best track and iam happy that i could fight a little with the top off the ranking list. "

|"For me this was a real good race...|
Well i qualifyed 3rd(because of kolbe penalty)
so qualfyed 2nd and i had a good start and marques and i were sprinting away from the other drivers we together had a big gab to the rest of the field
After bruno made his stop i had stil 4 a 5 laps to go and i pushed hard en then had my pitstop which i overshooted because the light was not ready or so had to set it in reverse and then made my stop shame because i was gaining on marques....
But anyway i crashed into the wall out of the tunnel the chicane and that was it had a damaged car and made again a pitstop and fueled it to the end but my car was severe damaged i tried and at 1 point there was a whole train behind me sorry for my defending driving i did nothing wrong in my eyes its up to the driver behind me t pass me which is very very difficult in monaco
I think did pretty good to still held them up for so long with a damaged car i had!
But its sad 0 points and it could have easily been 8 stupid error
And congrazt to marques who did the perfect race
I also want to thank pappalardo for his great setup and also want to thanx
my team da silva netrex for having me the last 2 races
|"I had heavy lag, I hope I didn't hit anyone because of it. My race was actually over in the first lap, I hit the wall in the 3th sector and my car was bended. I did try to keep others behind me and get to the finish, until lap 16, I hit the wall again spung and lost my rear wing. |
I hope for more race action next races."
|"Well, with only 20 laps of practice (10 for qualy and 10 for race) my chances were poor anyway, so I was expecting to be outside the top 10. The balance was just rubbish, the rear of the car just wanted to slide around too much on the exit of the corners, and not even a heavy 1 stop fuel load did much to cure that problem. And then I misjudged the exit of Nouvelle Chicane and just clipped my left front tyre on the edge of the barrier, damaging my suspension pretty badly, the race over for me.|
Of course it is not easy when you are less than a month away from finishing your A-levels and focusing on your last 5 exams, and trying to find time to prepare for a race around Monaco as well. But if Silverstone or the next round doesn't come up too soon, I should be better prepared for that, so I'm hopeful."

|"Total disaster for me, I had good race pace for this race too.|
I was surprised by how my pc slowed down at the start, it was not this bad while testing with 19 Ai, I hit the barrier half way around the lap due to the steering reacting slower than I thought it would, Race over, uumm Maybe I am getting to old for this, very very disappointed!!!
|"Total waste of time again :(|
My best quali of the season, and my biggest disappointment. I just couldn't see where I was going, had about 1 fps at the start and have no idea why...
Well done Bruno, great drive m8."
