F1 is streaming the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix tomorrow afternoon.


Yes, the sport is showcasing a classic race in which the leader lost over 150 bhp with 50 laps to go, and still managed to win because the current formula of cars cannot overtake on this track (although it was still an accomplished performance to manage the issue).


Still, it should make for enjoyable viewing if you're a Ricciardo fan, or if you're going crazy with the lack of real racing.

If you could overtake easily at Monaco, Mansell would have won it in 1992, but for some reason that's Senna's brilliance and not the result of wide* F1 cars making passing impossible. Let's not take anything away from Dan.


*Even wider than today in 1992.

Can I copy and paste my response to the last 2018 “classic” race they showed?

But I can’t work out if I posted it yesterday or the day before so I’ll just give you the gist - **** off with all these **** races from the hybrid era.

10-minute warning.


I'll just copy and paste my response to this race.


I'm a big fan of Monaco but I was actually struggling to stay awake, so 3/10.

Anyway, Best overtake: Verstappen on Hartley on the main straight  ;)
