Great race. Feel bad for A.sutil Great great drive by him. Kimi should learn to pay attention on the road. Great drive by Lewis too.

Thanks Kimi...You gave me one more reason to dislike Ferrari..

Hamilton's mistake proved to be a blessing in disguise for him. He always knew his car was good at Monaco. Good to see him on top of the leader board again.

Lovely drive by him. Hope Mclaren continues in this vein and Heikki's luck betters.

Hamilton drove exceedingly well. Bad move by Kimi on Sutil but what about Force India asking to ban Kimi. It didnt look intentional though as he lost control.

though i am a big fan of Kimi, this was probably the first occasion that i was damn angry with him and wanted to kick his back side....he spoilt what was a wonderful run by Sutil....
also ruled out the possible first points for Force India F1...
but anyways glad to see that Force India is doing good....
hope to see better results in the coming races

Like many others before me, I love the Ferrari team, but today, I just hate Kimi.

What a drive by Sutil and Kimi ruined all that. The same way one JPM had done to Schumi in 2004.

Heart breaking stuff. I feel so bad for him, I dont even know what to say.

I felt so bad for Sutil. Poor chap had a great chance of finishing 4th, and now he's 15th.

The commentators on Speed TV said that the whole mishap could cost Force India a couple of million bucks since they'll lose out on advertising revenue.

Anyway, I'm happy for Hamilton, now that he's leading the driver's championship.

And what a performance by Kubica. BMW can surely achieve that race victory soon, maybe in Canada in 2 weeks.

It was heartbreaking to see poor Sutil's bent form in the Force-India garage after the incident & the mechanics throwing down their wheel-guns on realizing that their race was run... And of all cars on the grid to rob poor Sutil of his points, it had to be a Ferrari !

Anyway, Sutil drove an excellent race, nobody can take that away from him - he's the star of the race in my book !

I don't think it was intentional. Kimi was quite a bit behind Sutil coming out of the tunnel, but to his bad luck, got on to the bit of damp patch and lost control. After that, he was just a passenger.

That said, this was easily the worst of Kimi's Ferrari drives. How I wish we could go back to the Schumi days when he was just so consistent, every single day.

What a sad race. Hamilton winning the race, Massa could only salvage 3rd, Kimi missing out on points and Sutil's dream crashed.
Kimi loosing out on the lead in WDC. Hope he fights back in Canada and would love to see a Hamilton DNF!!

And Kimi-Sutil mishap was not intentional from any angle. Sutil should have accelerated and straighlined the chicane then this would not have had happened. But what car control by Kimi. lol
And on top of that Stewards warned Sutil as he overtook 3 cars under yellows on Lap 13.

Aye... Being an unabashed Schumi fan I can't agree more... Remember 1997 ? Another wet Monaco race, & at one point Scumi was 6 seconds a lap faster than anybody else ! That said, in that race he did exactly what Massa did on Sunday - went down the escape road at Sainte Devote

Wet Monaco races are always a lottery, the best example being 1996 when the bewildered Panis climbed out of his Ligier - in first place no less as his more illustrious compatriots (including Schumi) fell by the wayside !

It was really sad to see Adrian go out the way he did. He was really going well and would have finished just one step below the podium. There is nothing nothing to flame Kimi about though. There were many incidents in the race and accidents too and Kimi's slip up was just one of them. Anything happens in a rain hit race and the line" The driver on pole generally wins" is thrown out of the window. Hammy takes the lead for now but now for Kimi to snatch back that lead at the next GP. Awesome drive by Kubica though. Like that guy a lot.

Get off Kimi's back... agree its hugely dissapointing for force india and the sutil but it happens in a race and no ways it was intentional by Kimi. Sheer bad luck.
Lets hope FI and sutil get another chance at scoring point in the coming races this season.
