What a long and painful event this was, but all credit to Checo !

All we have around here are marmots, are they a suitable substitute?

Turned out to be quite an event. Now, they just need to replace whoever the new, current rookie racing director is with someone who has real F1 experience and can get a race going in the wet.

Jeff, I've heard those are tasty, but also quite high in cholesterol.

I prefer Vegimite. Never had it with creamcheese, though.

Interesting race. First half was wild, second half tense. Tip of the hat to Checo, who drove a masterful race, particularly over the final 20 laps when his tires were going away and he had Carlos all over him. Hard to feel badly for his having to settle for P2, but there you go. Max was a bit wrong-footed all weekend, so I am sure he is happy to have pulled out P3. I do feel bad for Leclerc: so close that he could taste it, yet so far...

A bit of a processional, as per usual, yet still turned Topsy-turvy by the rain. That might be the solution for Monaco: when is the rainy season? Set the race for a time of yea when it rains. Either that or set up sprinklers to wet the track. A bit for of an exciting ace that often is in Monte Carlo, with a fair bit of passing and dicing in the first half of the race from cars with different tire formulations, ages, and variable track conditions. Once that all settled down came the processional.

So Perez is now only 6 points adrift of Leclerc, and 15 from Verstappen's lead. Could the championship turn into a three-way race?

What's next? Azerbaijan. Another street circuit.

Hmmm. Perez signed an extension with Red Bull, through 2024.

Anybody remember the race where there were only four cars running at the end?

I do remember a shocking US Grand Prix with only half the teams due to some tyre (tire) issue - I think beer bottles were thrown on the track ... and I don't blame them.

That was the Michelin vs. Bridgestone debacle! I remember it well.

I was referring to the 1996 Monaco GP that was run in the rain. Charlie Whiting had the balls to let the race run its course, literally and figuratively. I guess there were only three cars that actually finished the race.

Martin Brundle mentioned that race several times during Sunday's broadcast.
