Well, given the last decades have given us plenty of races (not just in Monaco) where not even one obvious strategy call enlivened them, I call it a win - I certainly felt it was a good Monaco race; but then, I tend to look at the positives. But, I will agree that it would be great if the TV direction at Monaco had been better, we mist a lot of the interesting midfield battles. I would much prefer it if the TV coverage took more effort to look at where in the field the actual interesting things were, rather than the oft default 'follow the leaders' even when not much is happening there (though again, last race, it did feel like there was potentially something happening at several points on the lap, for the 1st and last 10 of that HAM/VER fight). I suppose it's just up to me to use F1tv and twitter, f1 timing screen to look up the good bits and switch to onboards!
the way i look at it, we could have a race in Monaco OR we could have a race somewhere else, and somewhere else would be somewhere a car couldn't win being minus 160 bhp or on completely the wrong tyres. of course we each have our own reasons for watching, but mine is basically seeing the weekend as a measure of awesomeness and excellence. when someone wins in, say, Austin, it's probably because the team/car/driver were the best, and personally i find that satisfying. Yes timing is great and i follow it but when the times are just a function of the car in front it's not that interesting either. So i watched Monaco but now i'm expecting Canada to be a lot better
