The Monaco Grand Prix is always promoted as F1's glamour race, but it's always total shite.
A procession of cars too big for the tiny roads, tip-toeing around, trying to avoid the barriers.

It's how I imagine a GP series would look if it were exclusively raced by pensioners on mobility scooters.

that's every F1 race these days. so boring!

Monaco is about crashes and breakdowns, as opposed to overtaking... Iíve been saying for years, F1ís biggest problem as a spectacle is reliability, made worse by the way they penalise them with grid penalties for mechanical failures.

Anyway, Vettel takes pole in Canada, with Vercrashen avoiding the wall of champions to push Lewis down to fourth.

The usual top drivers dominate through avoiding accidents ... this time Vettel and Bottas lead Verstappen and Riccardo home, with Hamilton and Kimi rounding out the top 6.

It's almost sad to see McLaren and Williams down at the back of the grid.
