    Really impressive flights in such hard conditions !

    Why he was not disqualified or get a penalty?
    He flew inside Mont Agel military zone (LF-R83) just before Monaco.
    The Japanese pilot was disqualified, looks unfair…
    Rules said they must respect VFR…

    If RB had permission, they should mention it somewhere…

    Thanks guys for an exciting and thorough coverage of a great adventure. I really enjoyed the live tracking, and the close race for second and third positions. The interview with Chrigel in Monaco enabled me to get to know the marvelous winner more. He’s a nice guy, and deserved to win. Charly B
