Now I want whoever Vettel was moaning about yesterday to give a statement expressing thanks at the Drivers Press briefing at the next rave that he wasn't demoted as a result of it :grin:

Vettel needs to stop moaning and get a bloody grip.  It's racing.  Cars get close to each other.

 

He was of course right to maon in Russia but I saw nothing wrong on what happened in China and Spain.

In the post-race interview Kimi was asked about ‘youngest versus oldest’, Raikkonen revealed the crazy stat that he actually raced against Max Verstappen’s father, Jos, afer all he is now the oldest driver in F1.

Quite a good race today. I think Ricciardo will take some talking down.

Wanted. Two drivers. Must not be idiots. Call Switzerland 543-234 and ask for Monisha.

Large sacks of euros would be an advantage.

An advantage?

I would say having large pots of wonga is essential to be in F1 at all.

It's been a long long time since the best drivers in the world have competed in this sport.

Now it's just a bunch of privileged rich kids.

I really enjoyed the race - I love watching the Monaco GP but it's rarely a good/interesting race.

 

It was obvious from the second lap of actual racing that Ricciardo was vanishing and Rosberg was holding Hamilton up.  If Rosberg had a brake issue with the car then I don't know why they didn't instruct him to let Lewis past earlier.  

 

In the end, Lewis staying out on the wets and Red Bull's screw up put Lewis in front but it could have been a blinding race if Lewis had been let go and him and Ricciardo had fought it out on track for 60 laps.  

 

The Sauber incident was comedy gold and I also had a chuckle seeing Rosberg getting passed on the line  ;)

I too enjoyed that race - for the first time in a long time.

 

Putting the RB mistake aside it was still a fantastic bit of driving from Lewis.  It isn't too long ago that he'd have probably panned the Merc in his over enthusiasm to win that race.  A very controlled and impressive piece of driving, I thought.

I agree completely.  I think Lewis deserves an awful lot of credit for how he drove that race.

 

I wish Verstappen had been in the mix too although it was always a good bet that he'd stack it round Monaco.  When he crashed in qualifying I think he'd set the fastest first and second sectors ever.  I think he'll win it within a few years though - his pace is incredible but with such a small margin for error on the street circuits you need to know when to reign it back a bit.

Let's be honest though, the highlight of the race was the Sauber incident.

 

Swap places?  Feck that.  Let's fight instead!  Take that, you twat.  :roflmao:

I watched the highlights program and for the first time in ages I didn't run through that on fast forward.

 

Something captivating about Monte Carlo especially in the wet.
