Normally, I’m the first person to defend F1. It is the fastest motorsport, with the best cars and the best drivers. It is a sport that attracts elite people in all areas, whether it’s the media, the catering or anything else.
But when you have drivers clearly racing way below the pace they are capable of, that’s not right.
The cars have clearly outgrown Monaco in terms of speed, creating a high speed train. It’s still the most glamorous win, but it’s one of the worst to watch — right up there with the Valencia circuit. Happily, it’s followed by the always-excellent Canadian Grand Prix.
