  1. Way to go Marussia!

    1. Was thinking exactly the same! 5 seconds or not, POINTS!

      1. and Chilton still 100% finish, right? lol

      So happy for them. They are no longer my actual local team due to the fact that they have moved from South Yorkshire but I am still rooting for them. Go Marussia!

  2. Ugh guys, Monaco is so boring, no excitement whatsoever…

    Seriously though, what a great race. Pity we never got to see Hamilton push Rosberg to the flag, but there was enough going on to cover for that!

    1. It was actually a boring race until the last 15 laps.

      7/10 for me, not more. Nice to see Bianchi scoring points.

      1. Yup, it was terrible aside from a couple of interesting laps whilst Danny was chasing down Hamilton. I wonder if most of the voters slept through the first part and woke up at the end. :D

        1. @textuality So I take it you missed Sutil’s, Magnussen’s, Hulkenberg’s and Raikkonen’s overtakes?

            @textuality @ciaran Ya, I was just about to comment that he must have missed those earlier passes and the fact that Marussia kept moving up and up the time sheets.

          2. It seemed like 90% of the coverage was Hamilton chasing Rosberg which was boring. Like probably everyone else I was waiting for the pitstops as a chance for Hamilton to challenge for the lead and that was thrown away with the safety car.
            So while there was action further back, all we got were the highlights and not the actual battles so my vote was 4 out of 10.

    2. Yeah, Monaco, impossible to pass blah blah, and it did have it’s processional moments but there were always chases and battles going on to keep me intrigued, then there were audacious passes, kamikaze moves and outrageous misfortune throughout to spice things up even further. 7.

  3. I don’t care what the rating rules are I’m giving it a 10 for Marussia !!!

  4. I thought Spain was the definition of a slow burner, that though was a perfect one.

    Scenes of Marussia celebrating were brilliant.

  5. 5. Dullest race of the year. However the Hamilton-Ricciardo battle was epic!

    1. Are you mad… That was the best Monaco race I’ve seen in donkey’s years

      1. And the 2010, 2011 and 2013 races? They were way better than this one (specially 2011).

      2. Yes, so it rates a 5/6 instead of the usual 3/4

    2. And the 2010, 2011 and 2013 races? They were way better than this one (specially 2011).

    3. 6 for me. I’m sorry but the expected battle for the win never materialized there.

    4. Would love to know what you rated the last race…

      Sorry, but what was wrong with no run-off, no DRS, and every single overtake (and there were quite a few!) being earned?

      Crazy opinions there!

      I gave it a 9. Real racing from real racers, on a real circuit. Huge congrats to Bianchi and Marussia. Was a ballsy move following Raikkonen.

    5. Rated it a 5 as well. Just wasn’t exciting at all to me. Vettel looked racy before retiring and might have added a bit more excitement. It would have been nice to see him take it to Lewis.

      1. As I explained last race I rate on excitement not interest. Chess can be very interesting but hardly ever exciting. So I gave it a five as well

    6. It always is a poor race for actual racing. 10 of the last 11 races have been won from pole. There was only a few “good” overtakes, the rest were dangerous lunges that just force the driver out wide. The only jeopardy was caused by poor driving, failing cars and some dirt. I didn’t believe for a second that Hamilton would pass Rosberg and certainly not that Ricciardo would get by. I only watched the highlights thankfully, I would have been upset if I’d watched it live.

      Thank god Rosberg cheated so the weekend wasn’t a total blow-out.

  6. Go Marussia!!!

  7. That was an epic!

  8. 7 – Monaco did conspire against the action to some extent by not affording many overtaking opportunities but MARUSSIA!

    1. Shame Ricciardo couldn’t quite get a shot at Hamilton towards the end. But defenitely a great Monaco race.

    2. I gave it 8 because that’s close to the most you can get in a dry race at Monte Carlo. Daniel late attack added a bit of drama and Bianchi’s performance (pros to the tv director for giving him some air time) was noteworthy.

      Bring on Canada!

    3. I didn’t enjoy it as much as Spain, simply because the battles couldn’t materialise into anything more than a slight procession. But still a very good race, by Monaco standards.

    4. I think 7’s fair. Monaco is tricky to score because the race tend to be a bit dull in modern F1 but this wasn’t just an enjoyable Monaco grand prix but an enjoyable race all round. And who could vote down a race that saw Marussia get their first championship points?

  9. Congratulations to Bianchi! Congratulations to Marussia! Amazing job, amazing!

  10. Congratulaion Marussia and Bianchi the only thing exiting in this race. Well done!!!!

  11. Was going to give a 10 but it 9 it is…

  12. A solid 8. Great drive by Bianchi, probably DOTW.

    1. Yeah maybe McLaren will be after him?

  13. A solid 10!! Just got the German anthem to listen to now :/ ;)

  14. Such a confusing race, some stupid and yet some brilliant drives. Absolutely thrilling!

  15. 9
    Thought it would be normal monaco procession race. But blimey, it was another great race. Great battle between NR & LH for majority of the race and then LH visor problem gave DR an opportunity to close in on LH.

    Solid drive from BIANCHI, HULKENBERG.

    1. Hulkenburg did great to keep ahead of Button, not as good as Bianchi though!!!

      1. That’s why I wrote Bianchi’s name first :)
        Definitely my DOTR

  16. Unfortunately my enjoyment was seriously reduced by having an awful stream for the first half of the race. Even with Hamilton constantly close it never felt likely to result in anything, and with bad video I couldn’t immerse myself in it properly.

    1. Try adtelly dot tv that’s what I use and much better than free stream

    2. Yep I also got a bad stream Matt, and my backup stream wasn’t much better, they are usually better than that.

  17. 5/10 for me. A few good battles but overall the field was too drawn out and team battles were neutralised because of RAIs and VETs bad luck, which made it rather boring to watch. Also both SCs came out at the wrong time 1 too early and 1 exactly in the SC window.

  18. I can’t understand how people can vote it a 1. Brundle said on more than one occasion “I’ve not seen that in a long time” about some great overtakes. It wasn’t a thriller all the way through and had it’s dull periods but plenty of tension, excitement and incidents to warrant more than a 1 surely?

    Marussia just feel like they are world champions. Really happy to see this but could well be the nail in the coffin for Caterham in f1

    The sky commentators are absolutely awful. They were all over the place today. But magnificent performance by Jules Bianchi. Also fantastic drive by Daniel Ricciardo, hope Red Bull can continue improving the car. And an outstanding overtake by Nico Hulkenberg. Retirements do make a race more enjoyable.

    1. The thing about Magnussen needing to give back the place to a driver who was 2 positions in front of him was embarrassing.

  20. Deserves a 3 but make it a 5 for Marussia!!!!

    1. haha just… what?!

      I do worry that F1 is being moulded for fans who share your opinion.

      Honestly, we don’t need lots of DRS overtakes per lap that can’t be defended.

      What was wrong with all of this tooth-and-nail style gritty racing? Just a genuine question.

      I just don’t even understand how people could see this as ‘boring’. It was really tight racing throughout nearly the entire duration.

      There was a slight lull for about 15 laps about 45/50 laps in in, but that was it!
