Outcomes: Raikkonen will leave the principality with the title lead if he finishes 6th or above
Massa will go to Canada with the title lead if he gains 8 more points than Raikkonen does without Hamilton winning.
Hamilton will leave Monaco with the title lead if he comes 2nd or 1st, bettering Massa's result with Raikkonen coming 6th or worse

yeah, the porsche supercup race started behind the SC, so if it stays like this, F1 will follow. seems like a repeat of fuji with barriers- could be a 2hr race instead of 78 laps

So is it going to be a wet race or what? Hopefully not another ridiculous Fuji style start which had the SC running until it ran out of fuel. Just start the race straight away. There will be some nasty crashes but it's a lot better than watching 2 hours of car train driving behind SC.

As for strategies, Massa is thought to be heavier than Kimi. He just did a fantastic lap so kudos to him. I don't think McLaren is that much heavier really. They're just as surprised as we are that Ferrari managed to lock out the front row against all odds.

i really dont know, forecasts say that it will remain damp, with further rain expected to fall in the race. part of the fun though, is not knowing what the weather will be like- it could be dry and sunny by lunchtime!

But rain in the morning will wash away the rubber. That's no good for traction and grip.

Of course it's a lot better but I don't think it's better for the drivers if the rain is like Fuji.... But the rain will not be like Fuji.... I'm pretty sure there will be no rain at all! Because most of the rain cames yesterday evening and this morning.
