Well, I got my wish... No Mercs on podium. Well done to Max! Very unfortunate for Charles, though...

IIRC Lewis Hamilton has won Monaco three times.

Look up how many wins Max has at Monaco.

Even the greatest have bad games/races.

As some like to say here, letís see how it plays out tomorrow.
Played out like a suck for me! LEC looked good to go when I went to bed last night

Nah, I'd rather risk it and go for the win than worry about team points. Too bad it didn't work.

Merc will bounce back. This is exactly what Ham needs to trigger his dominant form.

KUDOS to VER and RB....flawlessly executed P1

SAI carrying the Prancing Horse flag to P2

NOR stamping himself in history and old-school McLaren livery for P3

HAM clearly a non-starter and under-performed....

RIC lapped by his teammate....at this rate RIC may be fitted for a paper hat and asking "would you like fries with that?"

I couldn't agree more !

It really s@cks for BOT ...

Why It's always BOT's car ?
Let's keep in mind , The Merc W12 isn't a Haas or Williams car .

Coincidence ?
No way at Mercedes !

Sabotage is MBs preferred method of cheating!

Honestly . It's a shame for motorsports !

The Russell boy knows it as well . But he can't speak regarding his future Merc seat !

This is ''sick'' in the true sense of the word. WHY would Wolf want to sabotage for drivers points and not constructors points. It doesn't make sense and puts into question how Merc are run, too much success leads to sloth.
