Well what do you expect from Monaco? Anyone who thinks they will see motor 'racing' is bound to be disappointed on such a circuit with modern F1 cars. It is however visually nice to watch when compared with the Tilkedromes that host too many of todays races.

Now the sight of a 250F Maserati .........................

That's one way of looking at it, literally.

Answer: A more vitriolic post and far less reasoned explanation about the plight of Lewis Hamilton! (Well, you did ask).
Watching on TV (which I make a point of doing every year) it was a boring race, but having been there for a Grand Prix (as long ago as 1983), if I did wear a hat I would have to take it off to the drivers fro man-handling a modern day F1 car around the streets...

I would go for an eight, because that's how much I enjoyed it. It is one of the circuits where Formula 1 looks really difficult and a bit scary. It also looks so fast, which is ironic considering that it has such a low average speed. Monte Carlo always makes me feel a bit dizzy watching it and by watching all the driver's inputs, as a spectator you have a much better impression of the work they're doing than you do at many other circuits.

I don't really compare it to the excellent Indy 500 later in the day because both races were different and that was to be expected.

I guess it depends whether your watching it to see a race or just to see drivers expertly (mostly) negotiating the streets of Monaco at speed.

.. and no Mercedes on the podium.

As you say Baubs, not a bad week end!

Pity they only ran a parade, but then you can't have everything!

Yes, the same race at a wide, open circuit would have not scored anything near an 8. I am completely irrational with my rating because sometimes I will score a race a 5 if I think it is okay and about average (trying to be mathematical about it) and yet this got an 8 because it was 8 in the enjoyment stakes for me. I just enjoyed watching it.

Horses for courses. Personally, I watch to see a race. Cars following each other around at speed, no matter how expertly, just doesn't ring my bell.

I'd fight to keep Monaco on the calendar. And I'm also strenuously opposed to reverse grids and all that artificial jazz. But I saw that race, I saw a three. I'm not going to divine excitement from it that just wasn't there. Whenever I watch Monaco throughout the years, I have the Indy 500 on the brain. It's the prospect of the 500 that makes Monaco easy to watch. I don't know how healthy that is for F1 in Monaco but there you go.

Frankly I think we're conditioned to consider Monaco as 'special'. No doubt that it takes great skill to race there and indeed to win it. I guess I'd miss the loss of Monaco as an 'event' if it disappeared (which I'm certain money will always ensure it won't), but I'd get over it quickly enough.....

That was Pérez and I thought Vandoorne made it look like he was distracted into the wall. Did he leave too much room and get off the grippy line or outbrake himself? I need to see that again.

Even in Monaco, though, there is still often the possibility of a move. Mansell all over the back of Senna in 1992 is viewed by many (but of course not all) as a great battle and I can't say it would have been seen as such if it had been thought that Mansell had no chance at all.

It could do with more moves, though. Still, Pérez put a move on Vandoorne into Turn 1. Barcelona wasn't far from full of overtaking, but was seen as a very good race due to the intense and race-long Hamilton and Vettel duel.
