While Vettel was out front, the team were asking him to keep the gap to the car ahead (Alonso) to a minimum, he complained that the tyres werent going to last, everytime we heard him on the radio he was just a little bit negative. It seems he didnt really deserve victory afterall.

When even the artificial passing aids such as DRS fail to introduce the novelty of overtaking at Monaco, it's high time the circuit was axed from the calendar. But of course that will never happen as it's the "epitomy of F1", i.e. where the super-richest 1% can hang out on their yachts and watch the pretty coloured things whizz by while the rest of the world goes to hell in a handcart, pushed by the banks.

Alonso did a job on Lewis yesterday he let Lewis pull away while he saved his tyres and in the second phase of the first stint he just reeled in Hammi which helped him to get the jump on Hammi at the pitsops, yes it was another slow stop by the Mclaren but Alonso put himself in a position to get the jump on the Mclaren credit where credit is due.

Lewis did say before the race that he would have problems keepinig up with the Mercs and the Bulls.

Ferrari seems to have also caught up with Mclaren good drive by Massa.

Waht's oing on mclaren team - On sunday was more of niggling faults kind. Slow pit stop, failure to disclose that hes in danger of being jumped by a rial. So far they have not had a grand prix weekend where something has gone wrong.
Martin Whitmarsh hmmmmmmmm ?????????????????????????

I wouldn't blame him for being negative. Mclaren have been soo poor this season that any slight mistake now is sending Lewis over the edge, he has had it with them. He just wants 1 faultless wknd, just that...that can't be too much to ask for.

McClaren are gradually falling away from the other top teams and have not provided the best car for some years. This is what happened to Williams. It can't be money so it must be down to the personal and leadership unlike Williams who lost sponsorship and had changes of engine etc which did little to help. Perhaps they need to take a leaf out of Williams book and replace some of the senior staff who seem unable to come up with anything other than the mediocre. They have two world champion drivers as much as I moan about Button who are both well capable of winning races with the right car, it's just that McClaren don't provide that car.
Change is needed, Ron must be chewing razor blades in his gold plated office and eyeing up a spot between Martin Whitmarshes shoulder blades.
