Well in 93, Mansell had left F1.
And in 92 Senna held Mansell at bay for the last 10 laps or so (after Mansell had to make an additional stop, loose wheelnut or something equally weird.

So in short a whole race... no

@Ron ok the whole race was an exaggeration...

But @Bob what am trying to say is that Senna had worn out tires and Mansell had fresh rubbers and he couldnt get pass... in 2011 Massa tried to hold his place by running on the marbles and crashed, the whole red card was a result of someone trying to pass another and last year I believe Button was stuck behind Kovy a Caterham driver and in the end cost a collision after he got too desperate.

if you search for Monaco 1992 on Google and look at the BBC highlights you would see what I was talking about....

If Mercedes could lock out the front row then they would ask the car in 2 place to back-up everyone for car 1 to get away

Andy what the hell are you talking about? Massa did not crash in 2011 because he drove on the marbles! He crashed because Lulu drove into him at the hairpin and damaged his car, by the time he got to the tunnel his car was un-driveable.

otoh. ty is correct. have a look at the overheads. lulu clearly pushed flip and damaged the car which was weaving on the way to the tunnel. he may have been off line as he entered the tunnel, but that was due to his car being damaged.

I am not denying that Lewis was partially culpable in the events at the hairpin.
So i guess if the car was that damaged, Massa would have known.
surely his responsibility therefore to access the situation and not put himself and the car in further jeopardy.
Lewis may have damaged the Ferrari, but he didn't wreck it.
Massa's "Red Mist" was the driving force to that end result.

Massa drove on the Marbles because he went wide and Lewis got on the inside, you need to get your facts right...

Even Jacque Villeneuve took a greater wack from Schumacher and still went on to win the race... Massa's car was un-drive-able
