Yes! Go Coulthard!

Was it an interesting race? I fell asleep before it started.

Not really, not many interesting moments after the first lap.

I hate when the commentators say crap like "oh this accident is terrible for the fans" what crap. It's what makes racing exciting.

There were a couple of interesting moments during the pitstops this race.

Flames and wheel nuts...

Monoco...Indy 500 and Juan Pablo Montoya in the 600 mile stock car race.

What a great weekend. I hope everyone finds something to cheer about.

Last week he caused a huge pileup in the first turn of the first lap.

That's our Juan (#42). Never boring...but often never around to see the checked flag.

So Alonso won Monaco ahead of Hamilton and Massa.

Alonso and Hamilton are tied for the championship lead with 38 points apice, 5 points ahead of Massa.

That's 5 straight podiums for Hamilton. Forget the facrt that he's a rookie, but has there ever been someone who has been on the podium in every race in a season? I know I may be jumping the gun a little here but it looks like he's capable of doing it!

Things just get better and better...

Another boring race with the only interesting part being Raikkonen.

Go Webber.

McLaren are in an FIA investigation over the Monaco GP in which Hamilton was prevented from overtaking Alonso to win the race. It should have been Hamilton's win in my opinion. I think McLaren when they hired Hamilton didn't realise he would be so good and now they are doing some sort of damage control in having 2 top drivers.

Alonso is their number 1 driver and Hamilton is the young rookie and they probably need to keep it that way. The fall out of the investigation should be interesting and perhaps now that McLaren is going to be under the gun we'll see less team orders, which are prohibited in Formula 1.

Lewis Hamilton reportedly ranted and raved over the McLaren team radio after being told to hold station behind team-mate Fernando Alonso during Sunday's Monaco GP and only agreed to slow down after the personal intervention of Ron Dennis. The admission of the McLaren team principal that he had asked his drivers to 'cool it' has prompted the FIA to launch an investigation into their victory for a "possible breach of the International Sporting Code."

According to The Daily Mail, Hamilton 'vented his frustration' at being denied the opportunity to push for victory 'by ranting at his race engineer Phil Prew.'

'Dennis was forced to step in over the in-car radio and speak to his protege directly,' the newspaper claims. 'It was only then that rookie Hamilton, who made his views clear with several high-speed laps, finally relented and abided by his boss's demand that he should settle for second place.'

"Lewis was very angry. He turned the air blue when he was told to take it easy," a 'paddock insider' claimed.

Congratulations to Dario Franchitti, winner of the 91st Indianapolis 500 and the 2nd Scotsman to win. The other being the great Jim Clark. The race was as exciting and drama filled as the Monaco race was boring and predictable.

But that was last week, so bring on the USGP and F1 sans Schumi.

I was at the 500, and am I am looking forward to seeing the fastest cars to race at the IMS in just over two weeks!

I did not realize this till today, but, I get to see the F1 cars at their fastest of any course they run!
