Monaco GP

Just settling down to watch practice for Monaco GP, lets just hope it's going to be another good one, was starting to loose interest in F1 but this season what a refreshing change.

Yes, watching it too. Should be an exciting quali, not sure the race will be that exciting, just lots of people stuck behind other cars...

might just be the fact the noise is bouncing off the tunnel sides/roof
there have been 9 different drivers on the podium so for this season as opposed to 7 for the entire 2011 season

Here's a thought.... wHy is the next race Canada? Why did they stick it in the middle of the European section of races? I know F1 isn't the most carbon friendly sport in the world but it does seem a bit silly to put Canada between Monaco and Europe!

Weather I would imagine, the further north countries tend to be held over the spring/summer months. Plus Montreal is only used once a year, like monaco, so might fit in with how they use the venue the rest of the year.

No it's one the BBC ARE covering.





Beware of the Goldfish in the tulip mines. The ONLY defence against them is smoking peanut butter sandwiches.

Maybe I'm lucky enough to have sky, but sky's coverage is fantastic with all the options like helmet cam, staying with a particular driver, plus coverage of all practice from support races, It was nice watching them have a walk around the pits, Lotus had all their spare wings on a rack and the commentator was showing the very suttle differences between them

Just be aware that anti-government protests are going to disrupt the GP crowds in Montreal. Be prepared to be majorly inconvenienced... Separatist/anarchists have taken over. Unfortunately, the prisons aren't big enough.
