Michael Ammermüller wins in Monaco

Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup had their prestigious race in Monaco this morning.

The race at the front of the field wasn’t the most interesting ever, since German Michael Ammermüller had a good start and lead race from Pole to chequered flag.

Behind him, we saw Brit Dan Cammish overtake Norwegian Dennis Olsen at the start, and after that they kept the positions until the finish.

Behind them, however, there were more action.

Dylan Pereira broke his rear wing right after the start, when he hit one of the signs hanging out next to the grid.

Later on the same lap, we saw Mikkel O. Pedersen make a great overtaking manoeuvre on Pereira, diving on the inside in the Grand Hotel Hairpin.

Midway through the race we saw Paul Rees clip the barrier in the Swimming Pool section of the track. That send him off line and over a sausage curb, that is put in place to stop driving short cutting the track. That send his blue Porsche #21 into the air and when he landed again, he spun and took Tom Sharp with him in the fall. Luckily the drivers behind them could avoid them, and while Sharp had to drive straight to the pits and retire, Rees could do a few laps more, before he retired.

Chris Bauer, Egidio Perfetti and Al Faisal Al Zubair had a collision going into Sainte Devote, but they all rejoined.

Santiago Creel hit the wall in the Casino corner, but managed to get the car back to the pits, where he then had to retire.

The 27 cars big field managed to do all 16 laps without a Safety Car, which is quite impressive on the tight circuit.

Michael Ammermüller extended the lead of the Championship, while Dan Cammish gained a few points on Dennis Olsen, in the battle for second.

The next time for Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is in a bit more than a month’s time, where the Cup class will run at Red Bull Ring on July 7th-9th.
