Monaco, meh!

Congratulations to Daniel Ricciardo for taking a great win despite having to nurse the car to the finish. I’m a big fan of his, and he did a good job, but let’s be clear, he’d never have managed it on any other circuit – the tight confines of Monaco allow a driver to ‘park the bus’. The golden rule of ‘track position is king’ applies to Monaco more than any other circuit – I’d have probably been in with a shout in my road car 😉

The race was a dull one, as it often is without a weather intervention, but it deserves its place on the calendar as there’s something special about watching the cars thread their way through the streets at high speed. It’s a slight shame that despite the cars lapping faster than they ever have in qualifying we were treated to a relatively pedestrian race as drivers tiptoed round – the reason? The tyres of course…
