    I'll go with Sainz, but Lewis multitasking was great too, talking while driving all race long (not a good message to drivers, don't talk and drive) :D

    Max no doubt the only one can challenge Lewis this season and Redbull is by far not the best car

    Really? Max's performance in the race: penalty and bad attack on Hamilton. That was all.

    As said in the other thread, Verstappen is not responsible for the unsafe release, his team is. The "bad attack" was just him locking on worn tires, at least he tried something and it did not mess anybody's race.

    Driver of day is Hamilton for his leading role in the radio show "Monaco thriller - my tires are gonna fail soon". Bono gets the award for the supporting role.

    -The penalty was ridiculous... with two cars in a small pitlane, redbull was faster with the tires....... there was a medium small contact. Stuppid rules from FIA

    -and the overtake was block his tyres. But he give it a try that is that is why people look to F1
    What senna words if you no longer go for the gap... your not a racing driver

    I also felt like Lewis squeezed him a bit too much

    I can't really say Lewis made any off tracks or mistakes and being under pressure with dead medium tires . He held it down.....It had to be done for Niki. Lewis rarely wins public votes...he wins races

    If Lewis would not have been complaining that much, I would have voted for him. So Max has my vote this time. The unsafe release was not his fault and he was able to constantly put Lewis under pressure, driving in his dirty air (less downforce). And the incident between Max and Lewis when Max tried to overtake, that is racin! In the interview after the race Lewis did not even give the impression that Max did something wrong there.

    Well, do you know why Senna said the words? It was simply to justify his crash with Prost

    I agree that Max had to try the attack. But it failed, and Lewis rode masterfully on destroyed tires. For the championship I would like to win Max or Seb, but it must be admitted that Hamilton rode perfectly today.

    The history dont lie is very difficult to overtake on monaco... like Mansell vs Senna in his super williams renault and senna with his custumer mc laren. Lewis have doing a good job :thumbsup: nothing to say about that. Hope that Redbull can give Max a better car for the other half of the season. But I dont think it gonna happen. But if... we have exided races like today ;)

    Verstappen, no doubt about that. Never ever in the history of F1 has there been a driver constantly within a few tenths following the leader for such a long time (65 laps!!!)... You guys all sim race....imagine the amount of concentration that requires....in Monaco...and bear in mind he is in a slower car, constantly in dirty air with harder tires and a chunck of floorplate missing. Easily the best driver on the current grid since his FP3 mistake in Monaco 2018, period.

    And Honda the only engine supplier with 4 cars in the top eight, Alonso & McLaren are u paying attention...?

    Hamilton for keeping the lead on those tires, followed by Sainz for that awesome lap 1 and a good overall race 1.
    Verstappen did a good drive, but claiming he is the best driver currently on the grid is ridiculous.

    I think that alone wouldn't justify a penalty, but he pushed him into the wall, despite clearly being aware that he was there. There was enough space on the left.

    Senna admitted later that the same move was intentional to take out Prost. So if you know the quote in the context, then you know it is bullshit. You don't win races by going into impossible gaps and Verstappen has proven himself to be an idiot in that regard.
