For those that have never been, try and go. Saturday night is magical as they open the track to cars and walkers early evening. Walk the entire track and watch the posers in cars I could never afford!
I chatted with Martin Brundle years ago who was sweeping the track on a tractor!
Or wander around the back of the yachts, I chatted with Eddie Jordan for 1/2 hour over a beer about Fisi racing for him then.
Wander in the Rascasse pub. Buy 4 large beers...£70!
Sunday...I reckon the best place to sit is Casino Square as they come bursting through..the noise!
Enjoy!

Driver insight on how to drive the track. Especially interesting why it is important to do Casino right.

Ferrari absolutely messed that up. And both Vettel and Leclerc made stupid errors. Neither driver got the banker laps they should have done, and then the team compounded that error with Leclerc. Vettel used another set of tyres that he should not have had to use.

Absolutely shocking!!

The commentary suggesting the teams rely purely on data to make decision on when or when not to go out on track? Surely they cannot ignore the blindingly obvious reality when it counts though?

Leclerc made a couple of silly errors (lock up and missing weighbridge) but there was an age of time available to get him out again.

Elsewhere, based on their performances here and arguably all season so far, it's clear that there's 2 or 3 drivers that will be looking for work elsewhere at the end of the season.

Grosjean has had his time, he's getting worse!

Stroll is completely lost.

Kimi will probably call it a day and Giovinazzi isn't cutting the mustard is he?

Leclerc: I asked if they were sure (to not send him out again) and they said 'We think we are'

That's hilarious. "Are you sure?" "I think so". That's a no then, lol.

Ferrari is continuing to be a joke. They should have kept Kimi one more season to maintain some stability.

Ferrari need a "racer" in control. One that works by his balls not a computer...
Would you believe this Team has had near 70 years in F1? No..

They are, unfortunately, conforming to the stereotype. As are Mercedes. If Haas start fitting chrome bumpers to their cars we would need to as Peter Ustinov to commentate.

It just appears Ferrari has 70 years experience in F1, but
Ferrari have had one year's experience 70 times.

They just need to do it better. Strike the right balance.

I donít think you can claim their problem is they follow the computer too much. Mercedes are pummelling them and I donít see their approach as (non computer) racer led (I am certainly not saying they or Ferrari arenít racers).
