    Not me. I watched it until lap 40 or so, then realised how absolutely mind numbingly dull it was.

    lots of action; crashes, safety car and red flag and now a safety car restart. I wasn't really watching it but I sat down for a bit and then everything kicked off.

    I know, been very interesting watching Rossi on the Duc! Love some of the spats that happen, the Simoncelli debacle last time was so funny

    I was. Now going to wash the bike after yesterday's outing. Sun is shining but usually does not last. Need to hurry up. :-)

    Monaco GP was brilliant. Vettel squeezing so many laps out of those tyres was an amazing feat.
    Good to see McLaren get owned by what Loser Hamilton termed as the "Sports Drinks Team"

    Lewis is going to hit the headlines for those comments! "I is black, yeah?"
  • RaymondavalonRaymondavalon Posts: 5,346
    Ah, the race card... I am sure "white guilt" will kick in and Loser Hamilton will receive an apology from all the drivers on the track

    Watched the first 20-odd and last 20-odd laps - not bad, but would love to go to Monaco to see one live. That said, I still prefer the WRC to watch, now that's entertainment.

    What do you watch the WRC on? I find the Motors TV coverage to be aneurism-inducingly boring and disconnected.
    They always seem to be talking about a totally different driver (or in many cases EVENT) than what is on screen right now.
  • Stevo_666Stevo_666 Posts: 43,931
    I think I watched it on either ESPN or Eurosport last time but tbh I can't be sure :? I'm not so much talking about the coverage quality - which could always be better - but the sport itself. It's just more exciting than F1 regardless of how well it's covered - IMO.

    I know the sport is exciting, but Motors TV sucks all the life out of it - it has become one of the dreariest things on telly.
    I saw the ESPN coverage when they had a free weekend, and it was actually great. I'm not paying for it just to watch WRC though.
    Now, if they had a pay-per-view, I might actually be tempted.
  • Stevo_666Stevo_666 Posts: 43,931
    Had to go round to a mate's house to see the ESPN/Eurosport stuff as I can't be arsed with paying for satellite or cable packages (and didn't really have time to get my moneys worth anyway).

    Hopefully a bit more will turn up on Freeview sometime soon.

    Don't hold your breath. WRC won't be coming back to freeview for at least this year.
  • Hamilton is an idiot.

    I don't like Massa at the best of times, but he didn't turn into Hamilton. He's starting to become a right little girl.

    This is gonna go badly,but here goes....

    Monaco is a dreadfull venue for GP racing. Racing involves overtaking and that is one circuit where overtaking just ain't happening.

    He who qualifies first, finishes first. Dull.

    Completey agree about the Ali Hamilton comments.

    Drive like an censored , get spanked like an censored . Them's the rules.

    I thought it was great too, more action the better, crashing is a massive bonus and livens it all up :D
