    Expecting another Mecedes 1- 2, and providing Ferrari don't mess up strategy again a Ferrari 3 - 4

    If Leclerc doesn't get Verstappen at the start, expecing an easy pass with DRS on lap 3.

    Monaco up next in a few weeks, and while the track is completely unsuitable for modern F1 cars and the racing is never any good, I still quite enjoy the weekend.

    Can recommend the Netflix series on F1, it doesn't cover Ferrari or Mercedes which is a bonus.

    Look out for Pierre Gasly face when is he takes delivery of his NSX, one happy driver.

    The race showed Monaco is not a race circuit and the penalty system is wrong, driver endangering the race, driver endangering other drivers and trivial penalties, in general why does a gearbox failure penalise the driver - why not just points off the manufacturer or even sub divide into pit lane also, food for thought

    Good race this weekend, hoping Verstappen doesn't get a penalty even though it was a slightly naughty move!

    Nothing naughty about it. Max steered right throughout the move. Door was left open by LeClerc. Clean move that stuck. LeClerc lost the corner and steered in to MAx, which you clearly see from the onboard with Max.

    No issues with the move.

    He could have left Leclerc more room on the exit, but it was 100% Max's corner at that point. Leclerc could have either backed off, or taken to the run off (Easy to say sat that on my fat arse watching!)

    Definitely the right decision not to penalise.

    Not sure what this means for Gasly now though, getting lapped by your team mate who went on to win after a bad start - Wonder if they'll chuck Kvyat back in after the summer break.

    Best race of the year, strange how it followed the worst, think France is a terrible circuit and looking at all the empty seats so do the French!

    And thank you Raikkonen.
