Best of Monaco feature: KC

After an outing in Barcelona well below his standards, Karun Chandhok put in a stellar comeback at Monaco.  Initally qualifying 10th – not great but solid – KC slipped back at the beginning with the momentary chaos at the Saint Devote chicane.    Making that chicane cost him positions, but saved him from the post-race carnage rightly imposed by the race stewards.

KC battled with a frustrated Maldonado and a still unrecognizable Valsecchi, eventually pitting early.

Karun emerged near the back, as expected, but with little traffic to slow down his strong pace.  Meanwhile in positions 8-12, drivers battled and slowed themselves, allowing KC to position himself well when these began pitting for tyres.  Karun emerged in the top 10, even overtaking teammate Parente, and putting in solid laps behind the group where D’Ambrosio and Filippi were battling it out.  At the end, KC was able to build a nice lead over the people behind him, effectively avoiding the pile-up at Loews which left Mortara out and Parente terminally wounded.

Strong race, good comeback and a good starting position from the front row in today’s sprint race.   Careful with Pastor… if you don’t believe me, ask Koba!

    You forget Grosjean? 😉

    I’m joking but this year he seems to show that he has carried ART last year…

    In F3 Euroseries this year ART doesn’t seem to have a good pace.

      Let’s hope they can catch up in the F3 Euroseries. Jules Bianchi is a future F1 star in my opinion, and will be fighting for the title with another future talent – Roberto Merhi from Spain. I’m sure we’ll see them both in GP2 next year.

    I can’t believe Parente’s bad luck. A fantastic driver like him should be in the points in every single race. In this year, even in GP2 Asia, he has been in the points, then, or he DNF’s or have a problem in the car.
