What's odd about a boring procession around Monte Carlo? Happens most years.

Bring back Enrique Bernoldi, that's what I say. :thumbs:

Nah, the last 8 laps. They were odd. Apart from the fact 8 is even.

Didn't see it as I am away from home, but I gather they were, shall we say, a bit 'slow'?

lol how anyone can call that a "race" is beyond me!

When will Formula 1 remove this event from the calendar? It's the most boring event on the F1 calendar, every year it's the same unless someone crashes or it rains.

The Monaco GP is just a PR/hobnobbing with the rich event, there are circuits far better suited to putting on a good race that aren't even on the calendar.

Get rid of it, boring boring boring :nod:

Then just make it a PR exercise.

No points for the teams but points for the drivers should spice it up.

It is already just a PR exercise and it is failing at that because of the bad PR that it gets for failing to be a race. Monaco is merely a high-speed (OK moderate speed) traffic jam. In that respect it mirrors the modern driving experience, I suppose. :B

Maybe they should install traffic lights to really make it relevant to road cars.

Only thing kept me interested was hoping Ricciardo could hold on and his engine wouldn't die - other than that boring as Monaco always is for me. I've wanted to see it gone since the 90s, it's almost always the worst race of the season.
