@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.
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.
