    Best thing for the race would be Bottas and Max to take each other out <laugh>

    You’d have Carlos and Lando going at it!

    Gutted, can't see this being a race at all now unless the first corner is a cluster

    Hopefully Bottas will get a flyer at the start and be leading, will make it more interesting

    I don't care who wins, just as long as they have to work for it.

    I thought the normal, if problem after grid opens, was to have the space empty?

    I agree . I have my likes and dislikes , above all I want an exciting race . Not easy at Monaco , but with the newbies surely a good chance of a safety car ?

    It's a failed gamble if the gearbox had failed on lap 30 or something. When it fails immediately at slow speed you have to question the sanity of not changing it.

    Or for rain, a plague of frogs or other unexpected meteorological and/or divine intervention.

    Has there been a change of position?

    I was on the phone to my mum when it started.
    "grand prix's about to start"
    "oh ok, I'll hang up now"
    "don't bother, they've just gone through T1, it's at Monaco so this race is already over"

    Carlos closing in on Bottas now- would be wonderful to see Carlos win for Ferrari, he’s a cracking driver

    I'm not watching the race today btw... I'm in the back yard lashing myself with a freshly cut length of rose bush.

    Let me know how it ends. Cheers!
