    Nah for Monaco, they should replace the F1 cars with Golf Carts, it would look hilarious, you might get more than -1 on track overtakes per race

    and it would be funny AF to watch, best race of the Season

    The biggest improvement they can make to the Monaco GP is cancellation. This dull as ditch water event gets a free pass every year, yet we're forever reading about threats to the future of gems like Spa, Silverstone or Montreal.

    From what I'm reading Monaco may get the chop as their contract is up soon an the crown prince isn't keen on paying the full whack liberty want (previously he had it discounted).

    QFT.

    It's useless. The only thing it's good for is for people to check up on their yachts.

    I think there have been some epic Monaco races however its been decades since a race would be considered that standard. Monaco should be a special event not connected to the season or some novelty hyjinx to make it interesting, like 5 laps on bikes and a swimming portion through the harbour.

    I dont think Alonso is gonna win this one. Based on testing I wonder if he would qualify

    Indycar McHonda looks about as fast and reliable as the F1 McHonda

    This year it's a McChevy, instead of an Andretti Honda with jaundice.

    Really does some up the ineffectual arrogance of Mclaren though, having had a good run with their name on another team's car, they rock up cold with a car and engine they've never raced before at the Indianapolis frickin' 500. Failing to qualify is exactly what they deserve, as for Nando he needs to sign with a proper team for the full season if he really wants to win Indy.

    Well, that's hilarious news about Nando and brilliant news about Billy Monger, so a good evening.

    But Nando is still having a better day than Joan Mir and Karel Abraham over in Moto GP, who both managed to crash on the formation lap(!).

    What a blow ahead of the Monaco GP...


    Also, genuinely no idea he has 10 year old twins to a wife that's 3 decades younger than him!

    Softyre-Os

    His pace most of both session was good, but not that good until they put some new soft tyres on and he gave it the beans for two laps. Come quali he'll be back in a more normal STR position, although it would be nice to see Max qualify third or fourth Red Bull car.
