Shame that all the action was either before the race or in the pits, but a great race by Berstappen, Sainz and Norris.

Rotten luck for poor old Bottas. Just like the old saying, if he didn’t have bad luck....

Really happy for Vettel & Sainz, but seriously shoulda been Ferrari's race. Hard to see Ferrari coming even close to this performance here given how their PU still holds the back abit although not like last year...

Great job by Verstappen today, Vettel as well. Mercedes really showed there blind spots this weekend. Decent race with a lot of drama, maybe not on track but it threw a new twist into the championship

Why on earth are they giving the flag to celebrities, if they have no clue how to wave it....🤦

Absolutely gutted for Leclerc. He really had a great chance for the win today.

A real rotten race for Mercedes, but in Baku in 2 weeks they'll be odds on to take podiums - perhaps it is nice that circuits like Monaco are on the calendar as they shake things up nicely in a year where really it is still arguable which is the best car on the grid overall.

Well that was as dull a F1 race as we have seen for some time. Even Brundle called it as such and he's usually effusive about Monaco being special.

Well done to Max taking the maximum advantage presented to him. Well done to Sainz giving the tifosi something to cheer about after the disappointment of Charles not starting. Brilliant by Norris to get a podium in the McLaren. Perez did his team proud after starting 9th on the grid. Aston Martin did a great job leap frogging Seb ahead of Gasly and Hamilton. Gasly did a solid job today. Hamilton had one of his rare off days, sweetened only a tiny bit by getting the fastest lap and a new lap record.

Well a fine win from Max Verstappen but have to say that it was spoilt by the lack of a Ferrari on pole to challenge.

Monaco really is a track that offers little except for the rich to watch some expensive cars go by while they sit on their yachts. It is time to drop this as a circuit and use one of the newer circuits where the cars can race and overtake.
Or maybe completely remove aero from the cars so they can overtake.
Something needs to be done. This is not a race but a car procession! Waste of Time and Money!
