Tony,

I love the Monaco GP for the spectacle. F1 probably wouldn't be the same without it, but let's be honest, usually the racing at this track is just a boring procession.

2011 was a good race, but usually it is NOT good racing. Sure, there have been some iconic wins (and losses) at this track, but these have become iconic simply because of where they were - Monaco.

I have the utmost respect and awe for the way these drivers thread their cars through these impossibly tight streets at massive speeds, but good racing is rarely what this track produces.

Isn't that what we watch F1 for? Racing, not just watching drivers go fast round a track, one after the other.
