Dammit missed this! Could have gone to Bahrain to see it, tickets wouldn't have been a problem. Well work is important.

Good to see Massa win. Its still a Raikonnen v Alonso for the Driver's title. But whoever dominates between Massa and Hamilton will decide the constructors title for their team. That should be the exciting rivalry IMO.

Hamilton is a very talented prospect. Hopefully he lives up to the hype (being created) much better than Button.

One of the best races I've seen for a long, long time. F1 is truly great with a bit of competition.


Brilliant race today. Again Hamilton did fantastically well again. The thing is having been on the podium 3 times in 3 races he's going to feel gutted when his car lets him down!

Hamilton in 4th position on the grid today, could be his first disappontment but not a bad thing though.

Hamilton top of the drivers championship without winning a race. Seems a really nice, intelligent and talented guy.

Anyone been to the Monaco grand prix? I'm there next week in the Secteur Rocher - looking for some tips on when to get there and where to grab a spot etc.

F1 over the summer is the one thing that prevents me from doing dangerous and stupid stuff to relieve my boredom, now that football is over for a couple of months. Can't wait for Monaco this wkend. Lewis has never lost a a race there, but I think its going to be either Kimi or Massa winning this. Alonso isn't fully harmonised (is there such a word?) with his car yet, so I can't see him winning this unless Mclaren have done some drastic improvements over the past 2 weeks.

Incidently, I've been a Mclaren fan for a long time and I hope that we win the Constructors Championship atleast. Its a tough call to ask either of the drivers to win the Drivers championship in a season, which is really one where Mclaren are looking to build on the teams good performances so far and be as competitive as Ferrari. Ferrari have been ahead pace-wise so far this season, so it kinda says how well Lewis has been to be there at the top of the drivers championship. (Mind you.. this is a slightly biased view..)

Hope that BMW and Red Bull continue to improve. Red Bull really will be strong come the end of the season, (they stole Newey off us.. they should be good). I don't mind a Ferrari-Mclaren battle, but it'll be interesting to see the others challenging and being an ingredient in the race for the championship. Spices things up a bit.

That's my 2 cents on the season so far. Glad to see others enjoy F1 here too.

Lucky you!! This is my favourite race circuit, very unpredictable. Ferrari not doing so well so far!

Formula One bosses are investigating McLaren for a possible breach of the rules in Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.
McLaren team boss Ron Dennis admitted he prevented Britain's Lewis Hamilton challenging eventual winner Fernando Alonso after their first pit stops.

A statement read: "The FIA has launched an investigation into incidents involving the McLaren Mercedes team."

McLaren denied using team orders, which have been banned since 2002, but said they had employed team strategy.

The FIA is investigating a possible breach of the international sporting code.

The code states it will punish "any fraudulent conduct or any act prejudicial to the interests of any competition or to the interests of motor sport generally."

More in the link above.

I read that too, however I think its rubbish. Its very difficult to overtake at Monaco, so the instructions were probably for safety reasons.

Agreed, it's far too risky to overtake at Monaco. And the last thing a team needs is for both drivers to take each other off the circuit.
Pure rubbish.

Back in 2002 both Schumacher and Barrichello were involved in something almost similar when firstly Barrichello slowed down deliberately to allow Schumi to win. Later in the year with the title sealed, Schumi returned the compliment for Barrichello.

Ferrari were fined $ 1 million for this and such orders were banned then on, under the title of 'Team Orders which Interfere with Race Result'.

Hard to say whether this falls under the same category. Nothing much to worry about if I were a McLaren fan (which I'm not). Both were fighting for McLaren's points and are currently tied on equal points individually.

Raikonnen seems to be falling by the wayside here. He needs to learn alot about the Ferrari quickly if he has to make a fist of this title race.
