    Now that was a race to remember! I was cheering in front of the TV then. Ligier for the win!
     
  3. That was hilarious!
     
  4. Monaco, the "jewel" track of F1!

    Sorry for stealing your quote whoever said that :)
     
  5. That race is on the Formula 1 Website. Pretty awesome race that one. Though 1982 was a classic. 3 race leaders crash out on the last lap.

  8. Another win for Button! Top work!
     
  9. Great for Button and im happy to see him win but Ferrari or Red Bull need to start beating Brawn for it to get interesting.

    Now finally Hamilton's dad seem to have dissappeared from the TV camera's attention and now we are spammed with Button Sr.
    How hard is it to focus on the racing and leave the dad's, brother's and other people that are only there for the attention and egoboosting, out of it.

    Agreed Bram! The dads dont do anything!!!

    F1 is getting quite predictable now......
     
  14. Really great drive from Jenson - fantastic management of the supersofts. Some VERY strange performances this race. Hamilton, Toyota, BMW, Rosberg, Force India. Weeird

    As it have been for the last 5 years or so...
     
  16. monaco.... its a great circuit to watch the cars, but is it still justified on the calendar as a race?

    quali is where the action really is unless you have changeable conditions.

    well done to button, again not a foot wrong... and did i see kimi smile on the podium??? :O
     
  17. C'mon guys... the last 2 seasons have been fun to watch. What do you feel is missing that much?

    I thought it was still a pretty good race to watch today.

  18. The only ones I may tolerate are the girlfriends...:laugh2: Man, we're in the wrong line of work.

  19. Yes, quali was more interesting than the race. You just can't pass anybody. Massa tried and suffered for it.

    Does anybody enjoy watching this prime-vs-option tires bs? It's not making it any more fun for me. It just gets some drivers royally screwed, though.

    BMW are absolutely horrible. I'm thinking they might be outscored by Force India this year.
     
  20. Bloody oath.

    I had this argument with my cousin during the race.
    They're trying to promote overtaking in F1, but they still end up at this bloody joint, where the only overtaking is the drivers who have crashed, on the way to the airport.

    Ah well, it's all $$$ to Bernie, so I'm sure he doesnt mind the lack of overtaking!
