Re: Nice Win for Ricciardo / Red Bull / TAG Heuer in Monaco

: Did you watch the race, or did you just read the results?
: It was sort of a procession. The most boring race I've ever seen.

To watch, yes boring. To follow with the timing screens and well-informed commentary -- very interesting. Because track position is the important thing at Monaco the tactics of "stop for new tyres, or not?" were great to follow. How did Gasly keep those hyper-softs going for so long? (Future champion there!) Ricciardo did what I call a "Jim Clark" [*] performance: drive around your problems, fake out the opposition and win.

You want overtaking? I've seen a suggestion I like for the Monaco GP -- give them an 1980's design Formula Ford each, maybe with a 200bhp BDA in the back. Mass production road tyres of course.

[*] Other best of their era drivers are available. Jim Clark was the one when I started following F1.
