    I’m somewhat surprise no thread has been started, I’ll start the thread with the news of qualifying. The villain driver Johnny Cecotto grabs pole on Monaco Feature Race for Arden.
    Full result here: http://www.gp2series.com/Results/?seasonid=169&raceid=929#

    I wanted to start a thread but was so ill yesterday that I couldn’t. And ‘villain’ seems a touch too strong to me. He could emulate his 2012 performance by winning today.

    You were watching Barcelona, right? He deliberately drove into Sergio Canamasas to stop Canamasas from passing. If that doesn’t make him a villain, then I don’t know what does.

    never realised how wierd the qualifing sytem is….. Frijns starts 10th, but if he had had an even numbered car instead of an odd numbered car the same lap would have put him third on the grid….

    @melkurion the qualifying is split like this only in Monaco for safety reasons, incase you didn’t know.

    And knowing how ‘Villain Jr’ has done here in the past, I wouldn’t be so quick to write him off as the winner so quickly. Especially since theres no where to pass, and it’s not like he’s going to let anyone passed anyway.

    Indeed i did not know, but I think it should then be based on each individual time, now the way i understand it because the villain posted teh quickest time in his group, everybody in his group gets to start on the clean side of the track, even though drivers in the other group posted better times then then the ones in the villains group

    @melkurion Not quite right, the cars may be split in half for qualifying, but it depends on what time you posted, so even if for example, frijns posted the fastest time in his group, if 9 other drivers in the other group posted faster times, then he’d start 9th.
    So being split or having an odd number car means nothing, it purely depends on your lap time.

    no actually, as Will buxton explains, Those in the faster group get the clean side of the grid, while the slower group goes on the dirty side.
    So who evers in the pole-mans group gets clean side.

    Really weird way of doing things.

    I think the intention is to overcome the advantage that the second group would get: a rubbered-in track surface from the first qualifying group. Whoever goes second would be able to eke out a few tenths of a second simply because the first drivers put the rubber there.

    Out come the red flags, and it looks like we might get a full day of action on a Friday at Monaco after all…

    Shame for Mitch Evans, that was a mega start – and another sarcastic “well done” to Cecotto.

    So, what happened this time?

    We don’t get coverage of GP2 down here, so I have to rely on verbal accounts.
