On November 11, the fifth round out of seven of the SCNEF1 thirteenth season took place at the mythical track of Monte Carlo, Monaco.
After four first decent rounds, Team Mentalism heads into Monaco being third in the championship, 58 points behind FVR Esports in the lead. Oroka and Grimbows are the two drivers lined up for the team, with the objective of doing a clean team race, fighting for a potential podium.
In qualifying, Team Mentalism drivers miss the objective as Grimbows can only manage to grab P4 with a lap time of 1.08.921 while Oroka starts in P9 after putting in a time of 1.09.380.
Great start for both McLaren cars as Grimbows manages to keep his position while Oroka gets past RYS_ISOFOKI for P8. On Lap 3/39, RYS_Dandestroi breaks his front wing, meaning Oroka gains one more position and sits P7. Grimbows is faster than FVR_TehAlonso in P3 but cannot overtake him around the streets of Monaco.
After their pitstops, both French drivers are faster than their opponents but Grimbows slightly breaks his car by hitting a wall, ruining his chances of podium. Oroka manages to overtake SPRK_KynTYx on Lap 30/39 and finishes the race within a car length of SPRK_PulsaK who had a 5-seconds time penalty.
With Grimbows maintaining his qualifying position in P4 and Oroka making a great recovery up to P5, Team Mentalism scores 46 points in Monaco and is now 33 points behind World Series Online in P2. Team Mentalism will look to put up a fight for the vice-championship in the two last rounds in Portugal and San Marino.
