Well it wasn't a boring GP as some would have us believe but one question is how they justify giving a 5s penalty for unsafe release that compromises another's race. Logic would suggest that the offender should be made to settle behind wherever the person they compromised ends up as a result of their misdemeanour, rather than be allowed to continue to race with a small penalty to be served later
@354 - Monte Carlo may well be the one the teams look forward to the most. Glitz, glamour, casinos, luxury yachts, restaurants and the very best hospitality someone else's money canb uy. But for me, the armchair fan who only watches the race, it's the most tedious GP, by far, on the calendar.
Monaco might be nice for the parties, but it is a boring Grand Prix unless there is rain and wet conditions. So little opportunity for overtaking and proper racing.
354I agree that it is the most technical and has the most nostalgia, but it isnt much of a race and that is what the viewers want to see.
Well done Lewis, Max and Seb.@349: shame they chose to show the BSB yesterday instead of the Formula E as they usually do. :-(
Another peach of a Monaco GP for Liberty Media to sell the sport to their intended target audience....the USA. Now just you wait a-cotton-pickin'-minute!!!
Monaco is an appalling race ,and would be scrapped if it was a sporting decision .It's great to see ferarri screwing it all up again after F1 mandarins always stacking the odds in their favour financially .Any true sports fan would feel this way
Reading all these people saying Monaco GP should be scrapped. Listening to actual experts including ex-drivers saying that it is the most important GP of the year.Just proves that experts know what they’re talking about and most fans don’t.Also experts describe Hamilton as one of the greatest ever - but some of you think you know better than ex-drivers and experts.
Re Leclerc fiasco. After first timed lap in Q1 Leclerc was about 0.5 seconds slower than Magnussen. That should have told Ferrari something.
Not sure about this (I’m no F1 expert) but didn’t Ferrari used to be a UK based operation until 10 or 15 years ago? If so, it looks like they need to come back.
Ferrari are embarrassed by the speed and potential of Leclerc, they were ‘caught on the hop’, so now they are having to employ ever more Byzantine ways of keeping him from threatening Vettel’s position in the team. It has gone from ‘suspicious’ to downright blatant as the season rolls along. What next? Ferrari snipers dotted around the track to blow up Leclerc’s tyres?
