    Watching this feels like some form of torture.

    At least you'd feel something while having your toenails ripped off and dipped in salt...

    When's the last time we had a good Monaco GP? Should be dropped.

    Is it too late to change my vote to Max? That might spice things up.

    Good for Carlos, Lando and Vettel. Plus Max leading drivers championship.

    Well... If there was one thing that the pandemic has given us all.... It saved us from that misery for an extra year.

    That has set the season on fire. As fans we can't complain about the result, it makes the season ahead very interesting and has given Merc a bit of a boot. Merc have, not for the first time, shown some complacency. Let's see how they respond.

    The Monaco e-prix was brilliant maybe it just be in formula e.

    I have said it before. Formula 1 cars have become too big in size to make this race work.

    I don’t think Hamilton or Mercedes will be worrying too much just yet over what has happened today. Today wasn’t complacency by Mercedes, whereas the last race was good strategy by them, this was poor. They never needed to bring Hamilton in when they did.

    Merc messed up. I am not a fan of the merc pit crew. That tyre should not have been crossed threaded on Bottas's car, more care needed I suggest. The overcut vs the undercut? In any event, this livens the season for us all. <cheers>

    Well now we know, two votes doubles the danger. We did this to him.

    I would like to see a rule change where the car on pole cannot angle his car across at the start. Shouldn’t be able to cross a white line for x meters (bit like the pit lane exit), making the fight into the first corner a bit more entertaining
