Interview said there's a fuel pick up problem.
They tried to troubleshoot with rich mix but doesn't work.

Anyone notice if Seb was present while Mark was doing his backflip into the RB pool?

I didn't see him around, could have still been busy doing interviews.

I think Monaco is a great venue, but the race yesterday was beyond boring. There's just nowhere to pass.

Agreed.. Any other track when the gap between is under a second, you knew someone will use drs and overtake... At Monaco, it was pretty much where you are at the beginning, that's where you will stay if pit stop goes well.

Not sure why everyone is so crazy about this track when there is no room to overtake.

Perhaps it is not the most exciting venue, but Monaco represents F1's past. Also, it's a pure driver's circuit - it just requires so much commitment, focus and precision from the driver, which makes a win here that much more special. This is one race which I find exciting to watch lap after lap, even if nothing is actually going on.

I personally enjoyed the race. It wasn't a classic, but there was a lot of strategy and suspense throughout its duration. It was a bit more of an 'old school' race, in this sense.

The exciting thing about Monaco is the greater possibility of accidents because of the lack of space. This year's finish wasn't exciting because Nico was close enough to pass Weber, it was exciting because he might very well run into Weber or Weber might hit a guard rail. If it weren't for accidents, pits and mechanical problems, Monaco would be more a parade than a race. Basically, it can be exciting, but not for the best reason.

to me it seems the race is more intense and meaningful to the drivers than to spectactors and fans. i was hoping for some rain to mix things up but after the first pit stop there wasn't much drama and passing, the DRS zone yielded no passing that I can recall.

Monaco is the place to be!

If you don't like it, don't watch it
