the race was not bad, but kimi just got 8 :evil:. Ferrari is faster than all cars exept maybe mclaren, so why didn't he get 4rd max, michael schumacher sure would have done it.
GO KIMIIII....

it was a boring race...i kind of expected a mclaren 1-2 after quali but it was interesting at about lap 19 when fernando was in traffic and lewis was 'catching' him but then of course, fernando did a good consistent middle stint and won the race...

the mclarens lapped all cars up to 3rd, it was a dominant performace, mclaren are really back, we will win the championships! :S

however there was no overtaking at all...it was just very borring...
fisichella and kubica did a good job though

i think kimi did an alright job, last year the ferrari was a lot faster and the midfield was not as strong, but this year the ferrari is not as strong and the midfield is much faster so i don't think kimi's performance in the race was bad BUT in the quali he messed up :lol: :lol: :D

Race could of been better, nice to see Fisi up there in 4th. Kimi was lucky to get that one point. he was stuck behind button way to long to make any sort of run for the front.

Alonso rules! Superb. What an amazing driving. No mistakes & Speed. Smooth, quick and constant during all the race. Congratulation to Mr. Hamilton. Second after the Spaniard fighting until the end. Great!

Ate my words on Fisi... guy did good to bring the Renault to P4 and then run a faultless races...
Monaco is where great cars matter less than great drivers... Hat's off to Fisi & Scott Speed... Questionmarks for Kimi and Ralf...

im not a happy person at the moment.... albers having MORE proplems this week in the race.... not sure what happened but this is more bad luck to him! he was fighting with sutil for the start of the race, but then he had leaders behind him.... he said hes got something special that he can do in canada as hes always done well here, so i guess i cant wait till canada!

it was a very boring race...
no overtaking! no safety car and no real leader change!

mclaren destroyed the grid at monaco though, i think it ould have been a little closer if kimi had of been up there.

i dont expect mclaren's dominance to continue, the next two races are very different to monaco! will be interesting how they adapt.

Ferrari have a fair bit of work to do in order to get themselves to mclaren speed.

another disapointing webber retirement... will he finish any races this year?
Thankyou Schumi you will always have a place in our hearts!

McLaren under investigation by FIA
http://www.itv-f1.com/News_Article.aspx?PO_ID=39420

fia are investigating whether mclaren did team orders....
this is only happening because the stupid british press are accusing and sulking and whining because OUR golden boy lewis didn't win, britain's lewis didn't win, they just can't take it that fernando beat him
:roll:

this is a load of tripe :lol: :D mclaren are not guilty of anything...

You didn't really miss much. The race was boring in my opinion.

There are lots of videos of the Monaco GP weekend in the Motorsport Videos section (You need 5 posts to get access to it) Chubbs just posted the link to the Official Monaco Video GP Thread.

Don't worry about your English. I can read it fine. :)

That race was not the best Monaco we've seen, sure...
No one even tried to overtake!!!
Where is f1 going? Are drivers too bad for that? Are the cars not made for racing? I mean, just a couple of years ago, we had great racing, with plenty of moves after the tunnel, down to Ste-Devote or even at Loews...
What's going on?

Thank you very much for the help, i am going to see the much videos i can to catch up !
however, it is so bad that this one was boring, i like monaco a lot because i think it is interesting in a city, but it's true that overtaking is really difficult especially in this race... And yes, maybe the cars are not adapted for that as they're becoming more and more sophisticated, i can't really say...
