The conspiracy's favorite child does it in Style

Schumi on the pole, sadly that 5 place grid penalty and he starts from the third row, Just hope he goes up few places on the opening lap.

Maldonado overtook Perez on the outside and then cut across/ran over Perez's front wing. Then he went ahead and crashed. Though dont remember if he crashed in same lap or the one after that.

I've been to Monaco. The circuit is brilliant and the tunnel ride seems much longer in a slower car at speed-limits. It takes a good 20 seconds to get through to the other side, while its dispatched in a few seconds in an F1 car!

And I'd been there just a few weeks before the Monaco GP was due. It was in the first week of May, in '07.

I've stopped following F1 after Raikkonen left, and hadn't had the drive in me to sit for Race Day.

Missed it this time too, but was hoping there would be some updates? PK?

Can anybody give me a link to Shumi's pole lap?

Also, how can he win it ? This sounds implausible. I mean sure he can get the tires right and the pit timing, but even with Hamilton, Alonso, Webber , and Rosberg in front?

Either Webber has to screw up really bad on the first corner or Shumi has to perform an overtake extraordinaire when the lights turn green. :/


I was unable to find any graphics (the F1 site is down?), what are the KERS zones in Monaco, besides the straight?

F1 website has issues if you go by www.f1.com
But it works if you use Formula 1 (www.formula1.com)

May be f1 domain name expired.

Bravo Michael! The fastest one at Monaco. Fantastic!

The way Michael reacted after getting Pole position showed it meant a lot to him.

Suprise is that Redbull is not doing well this season as compared to the previous two seasons but still leading the constructor's championship.

Should be a cracker of a race and looking forward to it.

Massa seems to have woken up. Chasing Lewis!
Lotus are smoking from the wrong pot. Screwing Kimi's race every time. They asked him to stay out more expecting rain and now no rain prediction. At least copy the moves of others if you cant decide on your own Lotus.

Exciting race and building up for a wonderful finish.

Worst possible start for Lotus as Grosjean crashed out in the very first corner.

Vettel's Strategy of starting the race with the soft compound tyres while others were on Super Soft compound tyres might have paid off and he could end up on the podium.

Massa is very aggressive and looks good pushing hard on Hamilton.

Webber still leads the race and pushed hard by Rosberg followed by Alonso and Vettel.

Narain Karthikeyan gave way for the leaders by almost stopping the car and Steve Slater was at it again by saying "All Credit to Narain Kathikeyan who is driving a car which handles like a Supermarket Trolley"

i am as disappointed as Michael and his team would be. What should we blame for poor performance this season - it aint the driver. No points this season for Michael yet.

2 points is what Schumi has this season, and ill fate follows him yet again today.

Some jinx that he needs to come out of, all we can do is just wish him the Best.

What a race by Vettel, he's done a great job to get 4th.

Force India 7th and 8th is a great news.

Webber and Nico P1 and P2 was a good drive starting from Q1 and Q2.


1 -- Mark Webber -- RBR
2 -- Nico Roseberg -- Mercedes GP
3 -- Fernando Alonso -- Ferrari

Yet another Winner for yet another Race.....
