Felipe takes the magic Monaco win
Felipe has taken his fourth win of the season in Monaco. The weekend started differently from usual, as the grid was split into two qualifying groups. Felipe had the fastest lap when all drivers of group A went for their final fast lap. Felipe was improving but lost it in the final corner and couldn’t finish his lap. Due to some drivers not slowing down under yellow flags in the final sector, Felipe got promoted to pole for the Feature Race. Clément qualified 8th in group B, meaning he would start from P14 on Saturday’s grid.
Saturday was a day to forget for us. During the opening lap, Felipe got touched which resulted in a puncture. He had to come in for a pit stop and later in the race when the team was sure he wouldn’t receive post-race penalties for speeding in the pitlane, he retired the car. Clément was having a solid race, but got hit by Iwasa and couldn’t continue. The Feature Race on Sunday didn’t finish much better for Clément. This time he was hit by Lawson when he tried to overtake Clément at the Grand Hotel Hairpin. Felipe had to defend from Theo Pourchaire the entire race, in the end, there was no rubber left on his tyres. He managed to keep Pourchaire behind him and saw the finish line first.
