    Glad Webber won as opposed to some of the others, Mclaren REALLY need to sort their pit stops out, they are getting beyond a joke now - what happened in the last 10 laps? all those cars bunched and not one overtake BORING.

    Glamorous as it is that is probably one of the most boring Monaco GP's I've ever witnessed
    i agree with you 100%, i been saying the same thing, might as well be watching wacky races (the cartoon)

    Great race today and pleased for Lewis but Jenson needs to find some form soon. He was very downbeat during his interview, I hope they can work on the problem over the next week or so. What's Eccleston been saying about the beeb then? That would be a travesty as there's still lots I don't like about the sky coverage.

    One of the best races iv watch for sometime, its always good to hear the teams radio chatter but it really added to the race to hear Lewis and the team talking.
    Bet they needed a toilet brake before Lewis caught up with Vettel

    I think it was honest racing from Lewis, overtaking Alonso the first time with both on newish tyres, then after his last pit stop it was just quality to watch him do fastest lap after fastest lap to catch Vettel and Alonso.

    Like said just crazy to keep Alonso out, but that’s the “wacky races” side coming in again, teams not going for victory on ability but blind luck!
    I seen two different types of drivers/teams in this race, the drivers that went for the win!.. and then the drives that just went on a Sunday drive and let all the other cars just pass them not to burn-up the tyres, do one pit stop and come home second and third?
    Is this the future of F1

    seems daft doesn't it.....

    The more i think about it, one of the most enjoyable things about the last race, was the fact that Lewis was able to push the crap out of that car - he was able to race to the end because of the fresh tyres. That's how it should be, we're going back to the time when we had refuelling, too many things dictate the final race outcome, driver skills are secondary.

    Ferrari was simply to greedy. All the needed to do is pit one lap after Hamilton and would keep 2nd comfortably.
    Alonso would be still championship leader and might have a chance to fight with lewis for first.

    Yes, but they was thinking of Vettel also, it's not a 2 horse race, they went for it based on what other drivers are doing.

    It's like what Spooky said above, there was many different strategies between different teams, and the sunday drivers came home 2nd and third. Bust most importantly, the fastest driver came FIRST!

    Lol i like the way alonso drives though, very well thought out like when he let vettel past him before the DRS so he wouldnt catch perez and overtake him on the championship! Well donee to lewis's performance though, great driving!

    Don't look like much opportunity for overtaking at vallencia, a good Qualifying will be a deciding factor i think.

    Button fastest in practice, only thing im taking from that is JB is happy with his car and i hope he can get it in the top 5

    And that was another race showing that Massa shouldn't be driving for Ferrari long time ago.


    BTW. Anyone going to British GP?

    Very good race to watch, but gutted for Hamilton and Grosjean. Not the first time Hamilton's been rammed off the track by Maldonado, but excellent driving from Alonso to take the race.

    That's disgusting.... 20 second penalty..... stewards are biased pieces of s**t

    What about the winning car that couldn't make it back to the pits? amazing how the only lap it needed to do anything without any pressure on its engine, and it suffers a failure... blind eye perhaps

    imho i think there was more drama today than out and out racing.

    Apart form the first few laps and the last few laps there wasnt any overtaking by the top 5 leading drivers... but from there back was mayhem lol

    so sad to see B Senna getting that drive through, i didnt think it was his falt imo, and the point im making, its to late now for his team to appeal??

    So happy for Alonso, i had goosebumps watching him drive the last 10 or so laps after Vettel went out, and to park-it-up next to the crowds of fans...emotional.. awesome!!

    (wonder if thay dont find a fault with the alonso's car will he be penalised) i don't think so!

    Red Bull i think will always be suspect

    As Sebastian Vettel sped well clear of the otherwise tightly-bunched Valencia field in qualifying, the latest rumblings about the legality of his 2012 Red Bull began to grow louder.

    A new Adrian Newey-penned floor has debuted on the RB8 this weekend, which according to some sources produces a kind of 'double diffuser' effect.

    And veteran photographer Darren Heath said he heard from his regular trackside vantage point in practice "what sounds like off-throttle blowing" coming from German Vettel's car.

    Germany's Bild newspaper said the situation could lead to F1's "next protest threat against Red Bull".
