Still a utterly shit race track, anything interesting either comes from a pit or if someone crashes.
Yep - 100% correct. Was all about tactics and pitstops, which personally I don't mind but many average viewers would see it and prefer the BBC 2 afternoon 60's war flick tbh....I was reading that the only on track overtake was Mick on his team mate on the first lap.
But there is overtaking, look at bloody Vettel, he did an incredible job.If the goal is to increase overtaking in F1 then Monaco should of been ditched years ago, even DRS is useless at Monaco.
Overtaking that doesn't only happen in the pits, it has nothing to do with Lewis Hamilton either.But there is overtaking, look at bloody Vettel, he did an incredible job.
As I say, I don't like the idea of circuits being generic to avoid pissing off Sir Hamilton of Lewis.
The commentator said before the restart that this bit will 'seperate the boys from the men'It turns out Lewis accidentally switched to the "magic" preset (a mode for following the safety car that pushes the brake balance massively to the front) which caused (or contributed massively to) his lock-up going into T1. It did seem weird at the time, it looked like he had it completely under control to be able to turn in then suddenly tyre smoke everywhere and he disappeared from the shot.
George Russell mentioning it:
