I'm not a big fan of conspiracies, but...

Does anyone else notice that Horner's radio congrats to Mark isn't quite the same as his congrats to Seb when he wins? I'm not saying he's not happy to see Webber win but the radio message just seems a little bit forced and less excited.
Just an observation.

Commodores, since you mentioned 2010 and 2012, Mark becomes only the 13th driver in 59 years to become a multiple winner at Monaco and 8 of the previous 12 were multiple world champions, so he's in rather good company.

I still think he also did a side job and slowed down the train to give SV more time to pit. There was somethingn shady about that gap between him and Vettel, it wasn't natural, it was controlled from behind.

Not so much in luck I guess there is in a way but still, MS had a failure and DNF...

And I kinda think horner sounds forced to say something on the radio when webber wins :s

The fact that Webber mentioned not letting Sebastian get the 20-21 second gap needed to come out of the pits in the top three (or ahead of Webber) makes me think he wasn't trying to hold up traffic for Vettel. It was a great race for Webber, perfect start and drove darn near close to flawlessly, not letting the short patch of rain force an error on his part, even though he was under pressure. I'm excited for his first win, he was overdue and he deserved it. As for Vettel, he's fortunate that the pit/tire strategy enabled him to get as high in the finishing order as he did. Monaco is a fun track to look at, but it's definitely a processional.
