Totally agree our kid.

What was Lewis doing...joy riding or summut?

I'm going to have a mess with my GT3 spoiler to see if I can make it DRS activated........

A bit of washing line and two door hinges i recon. Think that would give
you at least 45.5bhp more out the bends.

Now we have DRS sorted what about kers ???? Thumb

Not the best race IMO because overtaking is so difficult.

Cannot understand why JB came in when he did the second time, and why he didn't go for hard tyres. He was easily winning at that point, and they knew he was going to have to come in again.

I thought Lewis would have tried a one stop, so was amazed when he came in when he did. His driving was "strange" to say the least.

What a place though. We will have to sort out a trip. (not Grand Prix week!)

A great drive for JB and a pity it ended like it did.

It certainly could've been one of the best races if it hadn't of got red flagged.

Hatton next week, like Monaco but without the yachts!

We will get one sorted. Mind you, still haven't found a hotel for Silverstone weekend yet!

Monaco itself is by and large one of the most boring towns in Europe, sporting just a couple of bars and effectively one night club that's crushingly expensive the streets are quiet and empty at night and that's the way the locals like it. Mercy on anyone who tries to 'woop' it up after dark.

You wait till you see Hatton!

Anyway Monaco looked pretty lively on the BBC pre-race bit.

The drive down will be good, and if it's too quiet we Canne find somewhere Nice.

(hope that's not too subtle!)

JB's inability to 'get close' to any front running cars is starting to get a joke, Hamilton is the race, which is what F1 needs

Ayrton Senna once wrote:
"if you no longer go for a gap you are no longer racing driver".

Lewis Hamilton went for the gap because he is a race driver.

Unfortunately Lewis raced Monaco the way I used to race.

Balls out and on the edge.

My mate, who looked slower, was smoothly and had better results.

Like most people though I didn't enjoy watching steady Nigel Mansell , but loved Ayrton Senna and an early MSC.

In Monaco Lewis was reckless.

Peters,
I like the idea of spending £18.00 for a pint, can't wait for Hatton spending £6.00 on 99 with a flake puh

Garry, KERS is been worked on at the mo. I'm harvesting the power for my stereo amplifier.
