I had a class on Saturday at 3:00pm (mind you I live in India, thus F1 qualifying European Races is telecasted at 5:27pm). Thus I missed the qualifying of the 80th Monaco Grand Prix. I was worth missing due to two reasons. Firstly, I had a Physics class on Electrostatics that was taken by Aditya Bhaiya (one of my favourite teachers at VMC). You can know more about him by reading the previous post or by visiting his orkut profile and you can also know about his popularity by visiting the community on orkut-Aditya Bhaiya Fan Club. I’m a member too. The second reason was that McLaren drivers Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton qualified 1st and 2nd respectively, spoiling the action at the street circuit. Thus I decided to cancel my idea of posting on the qualifying. I would like to tell you that VMC is holding revision tests online. This week we had 5 tests of an hour each. Thus I won’t be able to post as frequently as I have done before. I’ve also decided to post about my classes at VMC for my juniors to have an idea about the speed of the courses at VMC. I would also like to advice my juniors about what they should expect before attending a class at VMC. Look out for my next post for this.

The race was as disappointing as the qualifying. I don’t feel like writing about it as Alonso led a McLaren 1-2 with Hamilton following him. Hamilton expressed that the team advised him to calm down rather than stepping on the gas and pushing Alonso to the limit. But FIA cleared McLaren of all charges related to team orders. It has always been observed that McLaren perform unusually well at Monaco. Thus, you can expect a Ferrari bounce-back in the next Grand Prix. Overall, it was a disappointing race to watch if you are a Ferrari fan.
