    im putting the F1 Monaco GP together...
    quick question...would an editor prefer to see the video start from lap 1 and end on lap 78 say.

    or would he rather have the laps mashed up to make a better story ?

    The story is the race from lap 1 to 78.

    Think about it: When you watch a race or any ball game on TV, wouldn't you want to watch it in the right sequence?

    You can add flashbacks from a pitstop, a crash, some slow mo to cover up boring moments during a race, but, in general, you should tell the story in the order it was seen by a viewer on a racetrack.
