I agree with andrewm, this place is terrible. This is one of the reasons I really don't care for Monaco all that much (unless it rains). There was some passing on the track last year, but don't recall any during this race. F1 tracks need straights (or doglegs), where drafting and outbraking is possible. Otherwise, it's just like watching a Merry-go-round.

Neal, Jackie Stewart made a very interesting observation. He said there is no overtaking any more because the brakes are too good, and what used to be a 120m braking zone is now a 40m braking zone, and that's just not enough of a zone to get alongside and outbrake someone. Getting rid of carbon fibre brakes and going back to steel disks would probably do far more than the Overtaking Working Group achieved.

Iam Happy for Hamilton and McLaren but what an absolute BORE-FEST. By mid way through the race F1 made Valium look positivley stimulating!

Another Glorius monument to the dwarf is Singapore. Where are the 130R's , Eau Rouge's or Rascasses?

Its about track design too not just car design! whats the point in creating cars that follow closley when they dont have any deep braking zones? As ably demonstrated by the vastly quicker Sutil(unlucky but stupid crash) against Alguesari(impressing me with his maturity). F1 needs a technical head who knows how to create a spectacle and balance the books....Not just Burgeon the coffers!!!

Obviously Hamilton can't catch a break with some people. When he pushes hard and then crashes he get abused for not just bringing it home.
When he brings the car home for a win he gets abused because he didn't drive away from the opposition. :?
It was a fine drive and he kept the competition at bay. Sure he had some luck with other drivers getting drive through penalties and having mechanical problems, but in the past he's had bad luck too. That's racing.
Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton on a fine win! :) :)
