    I have a feeling MClaren will get some good result this weekend !

    I say Vettel - Webber - Hamilton for a top 3 !

    A little clarification on the difference between how long this GP is and Monaco, as IMO the article isn't very clear. Every GP on the F1 calendar covers 300km during a race, this is how the race length is decided. However Monaco only covers 260km, and so can be finished in the same time at a lower speed.

    Either Webber has lost his all motivation or Vettel is driving more than perfect.

    Red bull car is making f1 BORING !!
    Car has so much extra rear grip compared to the other cars it makes it kind of boring when the winner is known before race starts,Its been this way for 3 years now

    And how is that their fault? :)

    Every team tries to build the best car possible - yet only RB seems to succeed? Unlikely..:)

    Thats a shame when a car is 2.5 faster every lap than the 2nd :/
    I can only hope its gonna change in 2014.

    I think Di Resta just crashed his way out of F1 3 in a row

    Sans Vettel, it was good race. Sans Vettel it's been a good season, i just might start making my own championship table with RBR cars removed, just to see how exciting it could be (when they are this much better than anybody else, one has to think if on one inspection they find something funny..I thought that 2000-2004 and still think so.. bring me my tinfoilhat, FIA is reading me brain..)

    The current safety car rule is idiotic. First i thought that they should let lapped cars overtake while they are still cleaning debris but on second thought.. no.. Marshalls safety needs to be #1 during safety car, there's a reason for that single line of cars (enough time to have people to get on track and off again..) But waiting three laps after track is ok is just way too long. All thou that time might've helped the two best drivers in the race, Kimi and Alonso on the podium, it still felt unnecessary long.

    Jep, brought back memories from a time when Vettel wasn't even born yet.

    This has become monotonous. It has been for some time......but todays result just amplifies the gulf between one driver/team and the rest.

    If this carries on the way it's going, including into next year, there will not be anyone watching it, let alone be interested in attending any events.

    Without public interest, you will stuggle to intice sponsors to the sport, without sponsors you have very little money to develop the team and pay top class drivers, and without all this you'll eventually have no F1.

    Nobodys fault.....but someone has to put some people with brainpower together to come up with some sort of solution for the sake of the sport.

    It cannot continue as it is, it's making a mockery of the sport.
