    Was hoping Max would have a go at Bottas. Lewis on Carlos could be only real overtake if he can pull it off.

    McLaren have proved they have a good chassis this weekend.

    But and Van were both quick. It just didn't work out with penalties / crashes.

    Almost everyone else crashes. Still no points for Palmer.

    Monaco is always good having barriers so close but mostly just a processional race unless it rains. I think it's worse on new cars.

    But, according to Karun, Kimi asked for the stop, so Ferrari aren't to blame.

    Why can't the FIA get live interviews OK. The sound is out of sync for me.

    Kimi asked whether he should stop. They said yes. He asked them what was the best thing to do.

    I'm unsure what the fuss is all about? Coordinated or not Kimi got the priority, when he dropped into the 17's and Bottas and Max started the chain reaction Ferrari had to cover, it was Vettel doing 15's that won the race and kept him on the podium - if he'd of done 2/3 laps at Kimi's pace he would have been way down.

    Seb had to overtake Kimi legitimately earlier in the season and he had to earn it today with his pace. Anyone suggesting Ferrari coordinated a switch over with a half second delta between the two is brave. The traffic was the key, if Ericsson didn't come in the pits in front of Seb, Kimi would have won.

    Merc moving drivers out the way and using a team mate as a blocker is more sporting? People inferring Vettel isn't earning his WDC challenge?

    The huge disappointment for me this year is the power unit disparity.

    Merc and Ferrari head and shoulders above Renault and Honda, hence the two team shoot out.

    It's better than one team, but can we allow some ****ing testing?

    It's just ridiculous. Only 4 possible drivers can win a race at the minute. Red Bull have only won in the last few years when Merc have had incidents so only Ferrari have won on true pace. It's wearing really thin.

    Surely Honda should be able to test on reliability grounds alone!
