    Snoozefest. What a shit track.

    Best part.. K-Mag with the fastest lap of the race.

    Possibly the most boring 'race' I've ever seen.

    Cars are too big.

    Track is too narrow.

    Aero too disruptive.

    Perez is a donkey.

    I don't remember anything you've said.

    Isn't he still in a car with a messed up chassis? Or has that been fixed yet?

    The track is terrible. They were saying on the stream I was watching said the drivers claimed they needed to be 8 seconds behind the driver in front of them to avoid turbulent air. Supposedly the layout of the track with its walls causes the air to remain turbulent for longer periods of time. Explains why Bottas couldn't catch the car in front of him to get the blue flag he was crying for, and why Kimi couldn't catch him either.

    That's why it's my least favorite track. With the cars being quite wide even Monaco has become a boring race.

    I dunno what was up with Perez and Sirotkin, too.
    Interested in vintage cars? Ever thought about racing one?

    Monaco is almost unbearable to watch from any other POV than onboard shots.
    I know there have been discussions online (if it was a real discussion at upper levels within F1, I don't know) about modifying the layout to promote more passing, which I think would be great. For the supposed Crown Jewel of the F1 calendar, you may as well crown the pole sitter as the winner and skip the boring race.

    I get that Perez was upset that he couldn't pass Sirotkin, which is, like, his job and the point of racing.... You just need to buckle down and find a way past him, not complain about him on the radio.

    Monaco is the worst ‘race’ of the season, imo.

    Not only that, but he hip checked him on the way by which is seriously bad news.

    From the onboard shot I saw it didn't look as bad, but yeah, not a good look at all. Seems like a pouting child now.

    It looked pretty deliberate from Hulkenberg's onboard. Perez said he was trying to shut the door. I guess that's one way to do it.

    Best case scenario is he wasn't paying proper attention because he was so worked up. Not a great best case. It was like when he was driving for McLaren all over again.

    I just think Bettel has lucked into his 4 WDC's with Webber being his team mate and him having support from top Red Bull Management being the young kid/the future etc. Once, he had someone who was on equal terms he got his arse kicked from DannyRic!! Vettel, unlike Hamilton wants No.1 status in a team. I think Hamilton doesnt demand it from the get go, but as the season progresses its clearly easy for the team to support him because he has been the better and consistent driver.

    I think if Vettel and Hamilton were team mates he would be beaten, the same with Alonso vs Vettel (Alonso would beat him)....How on earth can you not win when you have the fastest car on the Grid and you keep mucking up!

    Webber was no slouch. The 2010 season, in particular, could have gone either way.
