Ferrari look like a second string amateur team. Shocking to say the least.

The Ferrari's come usually slower out of the corner . And in Monaco are too much corners.
It contains the slowest corner in Formula One . The Fairmont Hairpin, taken at just 48 km/h or 30 mph.
Too bad for Ferrari !

Casino Sq is one of the top spots to see the race. The leftie where the cars come into view is full of drama....

I've been to 3 GP's 2003 being the last one....and thats my fav spot to watch...

I also agree that the week leading up to the actual event is a blast.

The P Up Car Race is great and my fav is the Vintage race where you can go right into the pits and talk with the mechanics, and some of the famous drivers of those original cars...

come on its that bad and its not the first time F1 has a dominant team and it wont be the last.. i remember races that Schumacher was putting 3-5 seconds lead after first lap and Rubens wasnt even able to keep up with him.. he was coasting after the start..

Ferrari has serious problems again internally.. their car is better than the results they re getting.. tension in team can be felt through the screen.. Leclerc was good in last free practice but Ferrari made a cheap mistake again.. it feels like they re trying to kill Leclerc's career with some serious determination.. Vettel was playing a tilt game among barriers cracked even worse under pressure.. and Red Bull is close here to Merc' pretty much..

Let's hope so! For the last couple of years, the Red Bull has always been stronger after the summer break.

Fantastic race from MAX . He showed in the corners he was a lot faster than Ham. Good job by Honda !
But his 5 sec. penalty changed his end result in minus 3 places ...
#S@cks !

I donít know how much faster he was. They were nearly dead even back and forth. Iím wondering if they thought Lewis would put around Lap 60 and they could hold them off? Or thoughts on swapping to Softs around the same for Max and try and beat Merc.

its nice that HAM's tyres didnt blow up and no puncture after contacting with Max.. i guess Max's penalty wasnt that necessary even if i support Merc' pretty much.. Max's car wounded also and i believe if Merc' wouldnt pit Bot just in case for a puncture he could bail out without a penalty..
