    Was that the most boring GP ever? Apart from the crashes (not really the point of F1) it was just a fast boring procession with some slower processions when the SC was out. Even the new tracks that are being built and given F1 status (thanks to large wads of money going to the Poisoned Dwarf) don’t allow overtaking. F1 is now a giant computer game with races controlled by gamers hunched over computers in Woking or wherever the team has its HQ. Scrap the computers and let’s return to proper racing on tracks that allow overtaking. And yes, ditch Monaco, it’s had its day and doesn’t deserve a place in modern racing.

  2. Best dry weather race in 2010.

    And perhaps no other dry weather race will match up to this.

    1. I think Malaysia was better than this race, at least we had some good wheel to wheel racing their than we had here.

  3. Alonso does 77 laps on a single set of tires? Degradation is a thing of the past. This combined with no refueling has effectively killed the strategic aspect of F1.

  4. Monaco have got to seriously look at adding another section to the F1 course. The current layout might be okay for GP2 and other catergories but the chances of an exciting F1 race anytime in the foreseeable future (in the dry at least) are nil.

  5. boring. only crashes were “entertaining” ;)

  6. Monaco is not the most tv-viewer friendly race. It perhaps is one of the most exciting tracks to drive on.
    4-7 is an ideal rating i guess….

    I rated it 4 because there was no strategy available to the drivers to challenge the guys ahead…other than just anticipating a safety car period…

    I even enjoy the most boring of F1 races, because I love F1.

    Gave this a 7, looking more at the weekend as whole, admittedly.

  8. I think the Monaco Race track should make some changes for the new and improved formula1 cars, the fact that it is a tradition for been the elite and must important race of the season, it should be the best track as well… and it isn’t, it should have on some portions of the track wider so the drivers can do their over taking more often and if there is a heavy crash the race is practically over just like we saw today following a SC for 3 laps, if the crash would have been 5 laps earlier we would of seen the SC for easily 7 laps.

  9. Lewis Hamilton need to jump out his high horse…the kid need to respond to his Pit crew mechanic like a driver not like a spoiled child;
    The way he responded today to his pit crew man during the race…that is not acceptable, no matter what is the situation: if the kid is getting valuable information on the radio about the wear and tear of the brakes, he should answer….”Ok, Tank you” or “I will keep that in mind”. The kid thinks he is the best, he is very wrong….he has not seen anything yet.

  10. I am watching F1 for last 20 years or so. So I am able to sustain this procession through my sheer love for the sport.

    How can a race like today’s attract any future fans in F1 ? I mean How will somebody watch Today’s race and believe that Monaco is the Jewel in the crown of F1 and the most sensational racing of the year.

    I mean. I dont want to keep complaining about the same thing over and over again. But I am also starting to believe that the drivers are also losing their competitive spirit after driving a few races like this. Soon they and new comer fans will start asking questions like “IS OVERTAKING LEGAL IN FORMULA 1” Somebody will have to have a very good explanation for that.

    So what was the only and the celebrated overtaking of the Most celebrated F1 race of the calender ? Alonso Overtaking Trulli or Virgin ?

    1. I completely agree with this comment.

    2. In those 20 years you should’ve realised that Monaco is not about overtaking.

  11. I gave it an 8. I thought it was a great race, although I may have my webber-rose-tinted glasses on. But there was plenty of action all throughout the race, and some great drives. I wonder why though, they didn’t just red flag the race after the Trulli/Chandhok crash?

  12. Monaco isn’t just a race; it is F1 Tradition.
    I have been watching F1 for a while now – 20years plus.
    Monaco has always bean a procession, and for many of those earlier years of watching i have stated that it should be abandoned and switched it to another track. But recently i have come to love the race for a different reason. Monaco is now “the” demonstration of the Ultimate skill and bravery of an F1 driver. Watching the Qualifing laps of Kubica was absolute joy! I would have loved to see Webber’s fastest quali lap!
    Thank God Monaco is Tradition because its the only way they can get by the “nanny” “Safety” people.

      Have you ever seen races getting completely decided at qualifying in your lengthy 20 yrs experience? Seriously there’s no place in the calendar for a Catalunya or a Monaco or a Budapest. And with no refueling the strategy element is completely absent.

      1. No – I agree that the current format is the worst i have seen it!.
        There are lots of ways F1 could be improved, but you can say that about the entire season.
        There must be another thread for what is wrong with F1 rules and format.
        Quite frankly, this season, Monaco will be one of the most exciting dry races we see!

        Monaco was always impossible to pass, but it used to be an exception not the norm.

  13. Did anyone else saw Massa crossing the yellow line when exciting the pits? Is’nt that a reason for penalty?

  14. Prisoner Monkey, I have no idea what you find wrong with the Australian coverage. Of course Rusty gets excited these days when talking about Webber – he’s an Aussie, what the hell do you expect? Just like for a time when James Allen was obsessed with Hamilton and I’m sure Spanish coverages obsess over Alonso. F1 is a fiercely patriotic sport, and to have an Aussie do so well in a European dominated sport is enough to instil a massive sense of pride in any aussie motorsport fan. And McConville was excellent in his commentary stint.

    What I’m finding irritating at the moment is Legard’s tendency to override Brundle with updates that we figured out several laps ago, and the horribly coverage we’ve had to put up with so far, the most criminal being omitting BOTH of Webber’s pole laps.

    1. Just like for a time when James Allen was obsessed with Hamilton and I’m sure Spanish coverages obsess over Alonso. F1 is a fiercely patriotic sport.

      Not everyone sees it that way. Frankly I’m glad to be rid of ITV’s horribly partisan coverage.

        I am praying that Bridgestone makes its tyre compounds less durable. Otherwise all races will be decided at qualifying and the first corner itself. Even Red Bull seem to have overcome their reliability gremlins.
        For me who has been watching the sport for over 5 seasons now(i know not a very long period) the best season was 2008.

  15. I voted 5, it was a good race but not too much on track action other than the fact that there were 4 safety car period.
