Did everyone fall asleep? There's a race in Monaco this weekend. :rofl:

To be fair, it is the worst track on the calendar, plus there's also the Indy 500 this weekend. :p

 

Alright, let's catch up!

Thats true. It is more a long parade lap than a race.

Both McLarens made it to Q3 although only Button set a time. Red Bull are doing well also.

Driver of the race: Fernando Alonso for wisely dodging this race train journey in favour of the Indy 500.

Reject of the race: Marcus Ericsson for crashing at turn 1 under the safety car.

Too bad the Honda engine still let Alonso down, He was doing well until then.

Indeed. He was in a good position to win the Indy 500 at the first attempt - which is no small feat. One can only imagine the colourful Spanish swear words he must have uttered when the engine gave up.

On the bright side, a former F1 driver did win it, just not the one most people were focusing on.

 

Hard to believe it was almost Max Chilton, too; he finished 4th and led the most laps out of anyone else with 50/200! :o

 

Also have to mention Scott Dixon's huge crash...

 

That is a testament to modern-day safety right there; his car was destroyed, but he walked away uninjured.

Yes, was good to see Sato win. Alonso had a real chance to win it... until the engine let go. Dixons crash was crazy! :o

If there's anything that's guaranteed to make you giggle, it's Ricciardo's laugh!

Driver of the day probably Ocon

Reject of the race...take your pick... Sainz for that stupid crash, Verstappens Engine, or Perez being a child.

Red Bull fastest again. could make for an interesting race. Though it was a messy session, Palmer and Verstappen crashed and a lot of people bailing down escape roads (even created a bit of a traffic jam).
