Installing zenith compact laminate worktop next week

Here is general kitcjen layout

If we say worktop length 1 is where window is and worktop 2 is where chimney breast wall is, which worktop would you 'take into the corner'.

I am using biscuit joints only, due to it being 12mm thick. It would be easier to get biscuit joints in by running worktop 2 I to the corner and pushing worktop 1 into it, with biscuit joints. So effectively worktop join would be parallel with chimney breast wall. My only issue is that there will be no support at the edges where worktop join would be. Is this an issue? Can the join 'float' so long as its supported nearby?

Here are closer pics of corner

So, do i push worktop 1 or worktop 2 into the corner?

Personally I'd have the join away from under the boiler, an unnoticed drip, drip, drip could give you problems. I don't envy you cutting round that chimney or those thin strips you'll be left with - I presume it's really strong stuff.
