F1i's Driver Ratings for the 2022 Monaco GP

Zhou Guanyu (P16): 5.5/10
Racing at Monaco is a very acquired skill and it's no surprise Zhou Guanyu struggled to get to grips with the unique nature of the street circuit on his maiden Formula 1 appearance here. By the time we got to Saturday it was clear that the Alfa Romeo rookie was vying with Nicholas Latifi for the wooden spoon, and sure enough he ended up last in qualifying. He was handed two places when the race started behind a safety car after Latifi and Lance Stroll both ran wide; early pit stops for intermediates for a number of drivers then promoted him to 14th place once the race got underway properly. Once he made his own stop, Zhou settled into P16 behind Yuki Tsunoda and made a memorable attempt to pass the AlphaTauri at the Nouvelle chicane that left him yearning for fresh underwear. While that move didn't pay off at the time, he did manage to get ahead with nine laps of the time-capped remaining when Tsunoda's medium tyres gave up the ghost.

Nicholas Latifi (P15): 5/10
On the plus side, Nicholas Latifi wasn't slowest in either of Friday's practice sessions - but that was thanks to technical problems for Mick Schumacher and Valtteri Bottas in FP1, and Daniel Ricciardo's accident before he could set a flying lap time in FP2. Slowest in final practice, he dodged the wooden spoon in qualifying but still started from the back row. A minor mistake while still running behind the safety car put him a long way behind the main pack, but on lap 22 he was ahead of his Williams team mate after Alex Albon suffered a puncture and had to make an unscheduled second pit stop. He then spent 25 laps behind Zhou Guanyu and finally got past on lap 49, subsequently benefitting from Yuki Tsunoda's late tyre degradation problems to pick up another spot with nine laps to go.
