Nice to see Ferrari didn't run away with it this weekend, keeps the hopes up of a decent season.

Want to start a book on how long Grosjean will have a seat?

That was quite shocking, he’s admitted he chose that option instead of trying to steer it away from the circuit. It’s earned him a 3 place grid drop for Monaco, which is a bit of a joke when changing a gearbox is 5

He's certainly trying hard to win the Pastor Maldonado award for outstanding (bad) performances.

His stupid pointy finger photo on the driver profiles is enough for you to want to give him a slap without adding to it by generally driving like a tool.

He seems to have reverted back to how he was in his first season, but without the being impressively quick at times part.

Maybe Matty could just do all the posts for us, save us bothering?

I hate forums with a million stickies, but one sticky at the top with links to the popular / ongoing threads like the years f1 thread and the tv and film ones might be worth having? 🤔

imo the most posted on topics should stay at the top. Simples. If there’s 10 F1/spotted/etc threads, then so be it. That’s part of “no moderation” rules to me. No one person tries to steer the direction.

Nothing shouts class more than having the Tag Heuer girls wearing fake Tag tattoos on their backs.

I'm no fan of F1 but a question to those who are - surely even you lot find the Monaco GP to be a total waste of time? I fully understand why it has to exist, but as a race it's a total failure nowadays isn't it?

I have lost interest in F1, it’s gone to far down the PC rule book path for me, the cars look stupid and sound awful

Even 4K doesn’t do anything to redeem the dullness, the missus just said “this is so dull now, I used to enjoy watching senna”

Well - not wanting to answer for our resident cretin - but isn't emissions etc a part of the recent F1 issue? Dull engines and so on? Genuine question.

The dull 1000bhp 1.6 litre engines? I know they don’t sound great, but they’re hardly dull and they’re setting new lap records at nearly every race this year. Do you want to end up on The Stupids list? Because that’s how you end up on The Stupids list.

As you like mate. ZFG.

If that's how you see me - nothing I can do about it.
