I usually go Hamilton but here is hoping Charles can keep the momentum rolling and make it two in a row to thrill the tifosi.

The second half of the season could be really interesting, Spa tells us that Ferrari is the fastest car over the short term. Mercedes is faster in a long sting, and on Shorter tracks Red Bull is faster. But Mercedes can challenge them. It looks like Mercedes has the best overall car but both Ferrari and Red Bull can challenge from different ends of the spectrum. Hopefully we will see good battles among all three.

BTW, I think this is a Leclerc win, but Vettel might surprise us. In any event this race should favor Ferrari. Mercedes is not going to take any risks to eek out a win with such a safe margin in the championship. They will be getting the most out of the car with the most conservative speed they can run, unless something goes wrong for Ferrari and they smell blood. I think Mercedes will be fully satisfied if Lewis gets a second or third.

I guess Vettel`s days as top driver at Ferrari are counted since beginning of the season this year, the car fit much more to Charles` driving style then Vettel`s.
If there is a red car involved for the win and i guess they will win again, it will be another win for him. Very interesting to see that Ferrari now goes more and more into Charles direction!

I haven't watched much F1 since the Mercedes team domination, But I figured the Italian GP might be fun. To my surprise, the entire 1/5 of the left side was all Caesar's betting odds and the bottom 1/5th was scores etc. Has that been going on for a while??

Not in the official live feed. They show the current standings on the left and some extra info at the bottom or top when needed.

I thought this was a good race, we had something going on, right up until the last few laps. The balance of the season should have some good races as there should be some tracks where Red Bull has a shot to challenge Mercedes if Ferrari cannot. We now have a interesting dynamic between Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull in that each car is stronger than the other in certain circumstances and used properly each can win.

I agree, it was a nice race, with the proper amount of uncertainty.
Shame for Seb. Really bad n the spin, and even wrse after it. It's becoming hard to defend him, even for supporters (like me! :roll: ).
Lec was mature, fast, with the needed amount on wilderness defending position. Lewis' and Valtteri's fans might foundedly disagree, though! :lol:
BTW as Brundle underlined, it's probably the most cheerful and happy combination of national anthems.
It's me or a good section of Monaco's sounds similar to Grand Prix movie's main theme?

I liked the race too. I'm a Seb supporter, but I wonder what the official thing he was supposed to do in that situation was? Giving him the benefit of the doubt I'm hoping he was expecting the rear tires to spin the car around rather than block the track. It seems like at this point someone at the FIA would know about these blind spots the drivers have and install mirrors so they can see things.

I ased myself the same...
The idea, first, would have been to complete the 360 degree spin instead of 180 and then up to 270. Surely, the car gets grip when it does, and surely, 90 further dehrees mean more tyre flat spot. had he done 360, he'd have kept going with sooo much less trouble.
And yes, about spinning wheels and entering the track at a better angle, again it was not fully his control, but surely he might have waited for more cars to pass and find a wider window. A full "I blew it" no doubt...
