    It was funny to see practically the whole pack with teammates two by two

    The fighting between rosberg and Hamilton was incredible, and credit to Mercedes for letting them!

    Great race, they actually let drivers race each other! I missed it, now give us noise back and we will be happy! Great job by Mercedes. Massa finishing above Ferraris :D

    P.S Maldonado is a complete idiot!

    I think it's fair to say that today Hamilton, Alonso and Ricciardo destroyed their respective team mates comprehensively.... Quite a change from last race when they were neck and neck

    3/4 races this year have been quite horrible. It's funny how the were making fun of "old" F1 at the start of the season on Sky with their original 2014 intro voiceover saying "It was a procession" and it's now even worse. Anyway personal ramblings, this wont change unless the cars start becoming less unique with shared parts. Anyway can't wait to see which car will win next race, oh the agony!


    Oh yea, came across this vid @random. Damn I'd forgotten how fast the 2004 cars were :|

    Anybody happen to catch Today's Monaco GP Qualifying..... Did Rosberg do it on purpose ??? ......The more i see the replay the more I'm convinced there was something sinister from Rosberg :devil: ... a.k.a Michael Schumacher 2006

    He did have rather weird driving line there, it did look somewhat weird but I'm still pretty sure that it was just his mistake.

    Pretty nice sports weekend this week. Monaco and IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship 2014.

    What a race, wish all ended like that with the front runners so close together, makes for a thrilling race right to the end. As for Rosberg not getting a penalty, come on, not only didn't he take the chicane, he floored it through the run off area to be even further ahead of Hamilton than he would have been if he stayed on the track, that was 100% a penalty in my eyes.

    He slowed down in turns 1 and 2 to give back the advantage. That is the telemetry that the stewards cited when clearing him. There is no rule against going through run off as quickly as possible.

    Congrats to Dan!

    Only it's quite easy to make your car super wide in turns 1 and 2 at Montreal so slowing down wasn't exactly a gesture of good will, really. It's a really grey area what happened. Facts remain Rosberg gained an advantage cutting the chicane and he avoided potentially being overtaken. Him slowing down wasn't exactly him pulling over and letting Hamilton to overtake him.

    I think the warning was the right thing to do though. Hamilton will still win the title, he's the better driver by a healthy margin.

    It was a deliberate slow down in turn 1 and 2. Nico's telemetry showed he used less throttle and slower apex speeds than was typical for him. The stewards had also just given Kvyat a reprimand for the same thing. They stayed consistent by doing the same for Nico. I totally believe the stewards did the right thing in this situation.

    Where I think the problem is, is that the track should have that area redesigned so it isn't possible to gain an advantage. A little bit more like Turn 1-2 at Melbourne. Grass, followed by gravel trap. That way you can't make up time even if you wanted to.

    Its great news indeed however I find the lack of information on how conscious he is a bit depressing.

    It's been a while now since the race but I just cannot get over the whole Williams V Force In. incident and ppl claiming it was Massas fault even though the 2nd best thing to crashtor in F1 atm aka mr Perez was given a penalty by the stewards...

    Opinion seems to be split in this matter..... Personally i thought it was a racing incident. The Line that perez took was not the natural racing line. But Massa had ample room on the left to avoid contact.
