  • Monaco Grand Prix Qualifying

    Lewis Hamilton sticks in a record lap for pole at Monaco. Ferrari continue their slide, I don't know what they were thinking by not sending out LeClerc; could be they were spending valuable seconds dressing him down instead of changing tires. As was mentioned on the broadcast watch for some banzai moves for position during the race- or a big smash! Mags looking good for Haas F1 Team but Grosjean has problems with traffic during his run. Screw the rest.

    Ferrari strategy has been questionable all year, but today takes the cake.

    LeClerc is going to put on a show for the ages tomorrow. The only question is will the show be him storming through the field for a podium(or decent points) finish, or a spectacular crash due to the chances you know he's going to take?

    I hate it for LeClerc but his loss is our gain as race fans.

            Somewhere, Maurizio Arrivabene is smiling.

            The constructors' title is already in Mercedes' hands. And it's only for Lewis and Valtteri to sort out the driver's championship.

            It can't buoy the spirits of Ferrari fans that Vettel is still making mistakes.

                "On The Grid" starts in a couple and the Grand Prix is about a half-hour away. Hotcha!

                  Domination by one team along the likes of 2004, 2002 and 1988 seasons. I'm not a fan of penalizing teams for success, the other teams have dropped the ball and pretty much playing for 2nd place.

                        To be fair with Ferrari, it worked well with Ross Brawn.
                        The problem is Ferrari is pretty much incapable of winning a championship when italians are leading the team. Not since Enzo Ferrari died.
