Monaco: After the first right-hander and you've got a choice of routes through the buildings, I always go left. This is quicker, isn't it?? And even if it's marginally slower, going right means you've got to swerve to grab the gold bottle at the exit. I just wondered, bc so many good racers seem to head right...??

Watch some of the elite Vs race vids. The likes of Elite Hectorx, ReV_Tez, RpM_Darua etc always take the right-hand route. Even on the left-hand road you still need to micro drift in a lot of cars to get the city havoc and still keep the bend tight inside the tunnel.

In MP it's much safer to take left if you're not in the lead after the first corner, it gets quit scrappy on the right. Also you might get the nitro when it respawns which will make up for lost time. So it does depend on what/how you're doing.

You sound like my wife, ask a question already knowing HER answer and there is nothing you can say that will change her mind.

No, not at all, I like her too, very much, despite that flaw. :-)

By any chance would one of these so called "flaws" be the pathological hatred of a certain racing game? ;)

It is faster to go right, even if you factor in swerving to get that bottle. If you are neck and neck with someone going into that turn, it can make all the difference going right cause at all costs you want to beat your opponent to the yellow bottle. There have been many times where adter thay turn I am tailing right behind someone and much to my delight he turns left. Not only are there more havoc on the right but if I stick real close to the wall I usually come out just enough ahead of him to swipe that bottle, and the rest is history. 
With nitro efficient cars like the Apollo, X2, Cento in TLE cups, you can pick up a few very valuable tenths of a second by going right and skipping the yellow bottle, hugging the wall around to the straight. 

So
Much faster getting to the bottle
Slightly faster after swerving to get the bottle and getting to the first tunnel 
Significantly faster if you skip the bottle all together, getting to the tunnel.

.
With a tank some cars don't need the first gold bottle so hug the right wall and skip it. Save a frame or a half.
