    Basic(non-ABS) fact: If you don't mind the direction your sliding in lock all 4 wheels(left foot out ). If you also want your car to point that way, both feet out(enough to not lock the rears but lock the fronts). Yes it will give you flat spots, but that trumps losing your wheels altogether. If you want to do a 360 onto the track, just willy nilly floor it while spinning and pointing for the race line :P

    The last one just isn't a good idea in the middle of traffic though.

    Sadly... no flatspots active yet in pC2. Here's to hoping Ian's improvements include flatspotting, as it's such a game changer.
    Now I can just lock up in corners without worry about the loss of tyre performance.
    So it's just a major thing that makes me sad STM hasn't activated... yet.


    Now in other news...

    I just love this guy because of his personality, he's such a great chap:

    If it wasn't clear that was a jab at a specific Haas driver.

    The Red Bulls are lightning quick in FP1. As I expected because they have a lot of mechanical grip and the acceleration, but they always lost in top speed on other tracks. So Monaco is perfect for them.

    As it stands Verstappen is fastest with 1:12.280 and Ricciardo is 2nd with 1:12.336

    That said, Lewis is being crazy quick too being in close 3rd at 1:12.480. This with 22 minutes still to go in the session.

    The Ferrari drivers are struggling with the tyres it seems, as they seemed to complain a lot about them earlier in the session. They are both driving a 1:13.041 and .066. So that's quite a bit slower than Verstappen, meaning they will have to find more speed somewhere... somehow or else they'll be left in the Bull's excrements... eh, dust for how much dust there might be in a coastal town.

    It seems the Ferraris are always off the pace in FP1. Then somehow they pull it together on Saturday.

    Yeah, I never saw it because this some rendered wannabe Senna sim racer. So yeah, you're right in that I haven't. I saw the real one though.


    What I didn't see until now was the history of F1 at Monaco, until I came across the following video.




    Here's the first ever Monaco GP as a bonus:
