Why do I feel like a learner driver again the minute I'm faced with a French underground car park more suited to a Renault 4 or 2CV, complete with helter skelter entrances and exits with 12" kerbs ....".
The CLS did not fair well today and I only have myself to blame for the fact that I now...
Is this the most boring race in the calendar? There's very little overtaking and once the top cars have gained their position there's very little chance of a change. No wonder Hamilton was miffed as it seems this race is won or lost in qualifying. Great drive from Ricciardo though
Mercedes won The Monaco Grand Prix today amid protests about extra tyre tests with Pirelli. Legitimate protest or "toys out of pram" because you have a faster car than us ? Discuss. ;)

Once more Mercedes are 1 and 2 in practice with Rosberg shading Hamilton. Alonso third. Because Monaco is a circuit where passing is very difficult grid position is perhaps more crucial than most. BBC Sport - Monaco GP: Mercedes Nico Rosberg heads Lewis Hamilton

Some fantastic looking cars from yesteryear.

I will be lucky enough to be heading to the Monaco GP next year. Have been once before in 2005 and had seats in section K2 [exit of tabac corner in the harbour] which was great but considering trying something different.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to where else to be for the race...
Not something normally associated with Monaco, caves!
Below, (or is it behind?) the Jardin Exotique are the Observatory Caves. The warmest caves in Europe, 23C and 90% humidity...

Some fantastic formations

Just got back off my hols and wanted to share the best bit with you all, which was on Sunday 13th July :rock:
A couple of bits of the circuit are the wrong way for the traffic flow - so you'll notice a slight deviation or two
Don't forget to switch your sound on and turn it up...
For those of us that have both Sky TV and rose tinted glasses:cool: :devil: and perhaps enjoy a different style of Formula 1 racing, then channel 442 is for U :D tonight from 5pm. There are two thirty minute highlights of the 1965 and 69 GP's followed by a resume of Stirling Moss's career...
What on earth is Peter Hain MP doing 0n the track at the Grand Prix. Okay, he has been a fan since a child, but he is the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. 10 pence of my hard earnt money says he is on a 'freebie'. Far be it for me to suggest this but 'freebies' are given for a reason...
Wish I was going to this Car Show
Starts tomorrow for 4 days
Looks like you cant display a car unless it costs a fortune or does more than 200 MPH. The Ferraris and Aston Martins look very ordinary compared to some of the stuff on display
