    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

      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!

    What on earth happened with Ferrari there, no tv caught any collision with Marussia (as Ferrari tweeted) so makes one think if there really was something or just….dare I say it…..tactics?

    GJ Nico, GJ Marussia, GJ Ricciardo

    • Dave (@raceprouk) said on 25th May 2014, 15:27

      Why would Ferrari sabotage their own driver when he’s running third? Why would anyone?

    • ECWDanSelby (@ecwdanselby) said on 25th May 2014, 15:30

      That’s silly.

    • Lari (@lari) said on 25th May 2014, 15:45

      Not unheard of when talking about Ferrari, we can always go back to Barrichello, Massa, Irvine, etc archives to pick up situations where very, very dubious calls have been made.

    • Breno (@austus) said on 25th May 2014, 22:08

      While Raikkonen was going into the pits, Barrichello (commentator for Brazil occasionally) said there was talk on the radio a Marussia hit him.

  7. Ron (@rcorporon) said on 25th May 2014, 15:06

    5/10 for me. Would have been better if the leaders actually challenged each other at some point.

  8. craig-o (@craig-o) said on 25th May 2014, 15:06

    Drama. Chaos. Bianchi. Sutil. Magnussen. War.

    9.

  9. HiPn0tIc (@hipn0tic) said on 25th May 2014, 15:07

    The race rated 8, because of the action, great Kimi start, until the unsafe release, great Vergne, fair driving from Nico, Ricciardo good,
    Hulkenberg really good, but for me, Bianchi….!

  10. Osvaldas31 (@osvaldas31) said on 25th May 2014, 15:08

    I gave it a 6. Quite boring, but came into life at the end. Lots of retirements – like in the old days – let backmarkers to score few points.

  11. iAltair (@ialtair) said on 25th May 2014, 15:08

    9/10

    - Bianchi in the points.
    - Ricciardo catching Hamilton. (10s in like 3 laps or so?)

    Bad luck for Vettel. I wonder what can he do if he is still in the race. The RB10 really has potential.

  12. Martin (@aardvark) said on 25th May 2014, 15:09

    8. Amazing the tension a bit of needle between the lead drivers will bring. Always something happening down the field.

  13. djdaveyp85 (@djdaveyp87) said on 25th May 2014, 15:10

    For Monaco that was pretty good. Would be a 10 if the safety car didn’t rid us of the chance of the strategic battle for the win.

  14. Valhyre (@ausuma) said on 25th May 2014, 15:11

    This race like Spain was a slowly brewing like a good stew.
    I give it a 9! Because it was awesome

  15. Alex McFarlane said on 25th May 2014, 15:11

    Well done to Bianchi and Marussia, glad they finally have something to show for their efforts.

    A good race by Monaco standards, I’d give it a solid 8.
