To be fair it’s not like the 20% will give a fk either rofl

They would be too confused as to why overtaking isn't happening during pitstops and that cars can get within 0.000001mm within each others.

Many also think Croft is a commentator and not a circuit up north .
I think we all know, he’s not exactly shy in making it known,

I'd give the back 10 cars 4 corners max round Monaco before there was a much smaller grid for the 2nd and 3rd races

Pint and a club sandwich at the café de paris is nice enough outside the F1 weekends but the bars and cafes in the roads down by the start-finish tend to be a bit more habitable during!

That said if you're feeling flush enough to get ripped off for a €30 bottle of Rose it's worth trying to blag it into the Hermitage balcony bar after the race to laugh at all the hilariously overdressed Russians dad dancing with hookers hehe

Seriously though driving Monaco is an ambition I'll probably never achieve now unfortunately. When I was in Carrera Cup I actually passed up an opportunity to do a Supercup round when they were short of numbers. Still kick myself for that as it wasn't even a big budget for it.

I'd go for full track blockage and red flag by the third or fourth lap of Race 2 starting at about P10 hehe

L Hamilton will never compete in BTCC as long as I've got a hole in my arse FFS.

4/10 for trolling, see me.

As much as I want to think he has a lack of interest in racing other things, worried his ego might get bruised etc etc I think he probably wouldn’t do it as he wouldn’t want to come in and make his brother look crap

BTCC outings by former F1 drivers don’t always go to plan. See Blundell last year or Mansell who is usually remembered for his spectacular crash.

I doubt Lewis would risk his reputation or even if his sponsors would let him.

Mansell was on a good run until Needles pushed him into the bridge, he had 2 cracks remember, in the Mk1 Mondeo which wasn't the best car to another run in the Mk2 Mondeo.

He's doing a fine job of that all by himself. There's reasons he's a BTCC driver, and I doubt driving ability is high up the list

Far from Tiff's fault, that. Mansell didn't wind the lock off fast enough which speared him violently into Tiff's path and left him nowhere to go. Quite funny to watch the interview afterwards with Nige moaning about it hehe

It would be rather hilarious to listen to a post race interview from Lewis after he has been punted off track by Mr Plato on the second corner of his debut race wink
