    Lots of incidents, but otherwise a boring procession. The coverage was a nightmare. No, i don’t want to look at a Martini Board 1000s of times >.>

    Oh and Legard is the worst commementator the BBC has ever had…

    No passing, a lot of safety cars meaning no action, and a rather processional race. 9 out of 10!

    In Monaco, the drivers are pushed to the limit, one mistake and they are out, the track is a piece of artwork surrounded by some of the most incredible scenery in the world, and the stands where full of fans, in fact so where the buildings. Even the marshals were good, did you see how fast they cleared the track?!?

    Maybe there wasn’t 82 passes, but I’d trade 82 passes at any Tilkedrome for 2 passes at Monaco any day!

    If I had to judge this race from a racing point of view, 3-4. But because of the spectecular crashes, I’ve bumped it up to 6. Trulli’s and Karun’s crash was ‘amazing’. At least, some people still have the balls to attempt an overtake.

    For a dry race in Monaco it was good. Couple of big crashes, Alonso doing a bit of overtaking at the start, Webber, Vettel and Kubica swapping fastest laps towards the end, Schumacher’s move on Alonso.

    I’m not sure what people were expecting when they say things like “boring formula one has returned”. This is Monaco. There’s never any overtaking and rarely much action, that’s not what Monaco is about.

    We had a first part with enjoyable overtakings by Alonso in the back of the group, then after the pit stops and Barrichello’s crash it became the usual Monaco procession. It wasn’t so boring after all. IMO it deserves a 7.

    I gave it a 7, various incidents kept it ticking along. Alonso at the start of the race was incredible to watch (and di Grassi too), I’m slightly disappointed Kubica couldn’t get close to Vettel but apart from that it kept me entertained.

  7. Bullfrog said on 16th May 2010, 17:14

    Can’t really give any Monaco race less than 7, and this was an eventful one most of the way through.

    Memorable interview on the BBC Forum with a dripping Webber who’d just been fished out of the harbour, great stuff.

    Well I sort of agree with Steph about the poor TV coverage. But there wasn’t much happening at the front in the early laps, so I was happy to watch Alonso gobbling up the minnows at the back. Look at it the other way round; if we’d been watching the front runners with nothing happening at all, and Martin Brundle had been telling us how Alonso was passing this driver and being held up by that driver and shaking his fist etc, I would have been screaming at the telly “Bloody show it then!”
    And I sort if agree with Ned Flanders too – lots of boring bits with flashes of excitement. But that’s what F1 is, isn’t it? Gave it 5 points; medium.

    Well, I really don’t like Monaco.
    I didn’t find that race interesting. I hate safety cars.
    That’ll be 3 for me…

    lewis hamilton said it all, could have been boring to watch, because of few opportunities to overtake,and just driving lap after lap, doesn’t make for exciting racing, I must admit he’s not wrong with the exception of the crashes and safety car found it very boring and processional,Again like last year with Brawn at the beginning of the season, a fast Red Bull is going to dominate every race, must admit i fell asleep, having said that Mark Webber deserved to win,television coverage as usual was rubbish, missed so much. Bring back ITV!! Presentation on BBC needs a lot of improvement.

    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.

    Best dry weather race in 2010.

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

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

  13. Randy said on 16th May 2010, 18:05

    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.

    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.
