Watching today’s race from Monaco met expectations for the first 80% of the race.

Yeah… it’s a race I would dearly love to go to for no other reason than it’s one of the most interesting places to race with the history that goes along with that location.

The problem is that the race itself is for the most part rather a snooze-fest since it’s almost impossible to make a pass since it’s such a tight and winding course.

Until around 20 laps to go there was an accident… then Mercedes pulled in Hamilton to pit costing him the lead — effectively gifting the race win to his teammate. It was painful to watch.

<sigh/>
