    Strange tire choice by MERC, they fear the hypersofts

    Vet on pole. Think Ferrari are sandbagging with new engine? Verstappen was dominant in all three FP's.

    Legend lagged.

    Alonso, self evaluated 9.5/10 in all driving skills, except choosing a team.

    The finger unchallenged.

    Was really hoping Kimi would stop again for hypersofts with 25 laps left, if for nothing other than spicing up the remainder of a ho hum race.

    Qualifying was much better.

    Monaco doesn’t belong on the race schedule.

    Was pretty dull. Too bad, since this track usually delivers good races.
    Interested in vintage cars? Ever thought about racing one?

    That was horribly boring. I feel asleep during the last 10 laps

    Too bad it did not rain, the 2011 race there was the best I've seen in my 18 years of watching F1.

    Agreed but apparently Ferrari were scared something would go wrong during the pit stop and that he wouldn't finish. Pretty lousy race for him overall.

    I thought the early checkered flag was quite entertaining.

    Been going to this race for 14 years and I think this was the most boring. There wasn't a single pass on the track by the leaders. Looks pretty clear that Mercedes had no edge at all, and Red Bull is right up with Mercedes and Ferrari with the Renault engine improvement.

    Their mechanic with a broken leg may agree.

    Boring race from my perspective too. Does anyone know why Alonso retired? MGU-K or H?

    After the race, it was said something about the exhaust, but I haven't seen anything other than 24hr LM talk.

    Yeah, the exhaust broke and it was overheating the PU. They retired to save all the parts from destruction.
