"Speed trap" does that mean they get a ticket if they are caught exceeding the speed limit? Would make it more realistic I guess.

Jenson didn't look after Alonso's car in the end ......keys handed back "here you go I'm off home now " :D
Looks like Ferrari are favouring Vettel as the number one driver ......Kimi looked gutted at the end :(

Think they need to drop Monaco from the calandar - or get sprinklers installed. Always a procession unless it rains :(

Depends what the race is there for, if it's for the millions watching the procession on TV then yes it should be dropped, but is it about the money it raises & the people it attracts then they probably can't afford to drop it, lastly do the drivers want it dropped probably not, but then for most it's the best race for them, they sleep in their own bed the night before, walk, run, cycle to the paddock & then sleep in their own bed after it finishes.

As far as I'm concerned I wouldn't miss it, was there an actual overtake on track this year, apart from off the line?

From what I have read, there were just two overtake attempts after the first corner of first lap, both resulting in crashes. :rolleyes:

At least the next race (Canada) is usually one of the best of the year :s_thumbsup
