    Perhaps someone should explain to Max it's not a good idea to try and trash your team mates consistency by an over quick lap into the barriers, his quest to be infront of his team mate induces brain fade

    The commentators were enthusing over Verstappen's speed, he then hit the barrier and soon they were all saying that he silly to take so many risks. Always nice to have hindsight.:no:

    I don't know if this is true but Christian Horner was fuming :o so maybe patience is beginning to run out on Max given he's had enough time in the time but he seems to be crashing more

    A potential front row and 1-2 opportunity all gone in a bang:oops: How long is it before Max Verstappen gets labelled being more Maldonado/ De Crasharis like rather than Senna

    I am trying to compare Verstappen's career to Hamilton's and I just can't remember the number of times Hamilton actually buried the car into the barriers as that often as Verstappen. People were on Lewis' backs waiting for him each time he got into an incident.... Verstappen is living on reputation at the moment. Lucky for him they are not people in the Red Bull hierarchy questioning his position in the team and touting for other drivers like some other famous orange and red coloured teams do

    The big problem is that Verstappen has just arrived at the second winnable race of the season, and each time he’s ****ed it up by crashing the car.

    If Ricciardo wins this race, as is likely, then he will have taken both of those opportunities that Verstappen blew. That’s not a good look for Verstappen, and the first real challenge of his fledgling career.

    teabagyokel It had to come eventually where Max will face his toughest test

    ----------------------

    I am cheating a bit but the F2 races ... disastrous weekend for all the Brits including Albon with poor race results except for Norris who stretched his championship lead to a massive 29pts already

    Renault development driver Markelov moves to 2nd with a win in the feature race

    Latifi whose Dad bought a stake in Mclaren could only muster 9th and 8th so hardly a case to justify promoting him to Mclaren next season

    Max discounts Monaco as 6th consecutive incident - ignoring running into the back of Stroll in Spain but that is academic as he is at the back of the grid and lost a chance of a win and a certain podium . Costly mistake

    Further down the grid the following deserves praise

    Ocon- 6th - where did that come from ? Besides Verstappen missing from quali

    Sainz 8th - he is a bit of a specialist on the track but not getting the results

    Gasly 10th - just a reminder to Red Bull that Sainz is not the only driver trying to get the Red Bull drive

    Sirotkin 13th - That to me is some performance given how awful Williams were last race and he has struggled but he has managed to put 0.5 seconds on Stroll and make it into Q2 - I hope he is not still trying to use his PS4 to learn the track. I did not think Williams were going to make it out of Q1

    I am VERY disappointed by Thestrapon's position on the grid as it will provide the usual bolloxy drivel from every commentator in every language on every channel about how difficult it is to overtake, references to Coulthard, comparisons with Mansell/Senna.
    No matter where he finishes, as long as he finishes, his drive will be lauded as magnificent. If he scores points it'll be through strategy and others's misfortune and not through his own skill.

    So long as he finishes behind any car not driven by Daniel Ricciardo, his overall performance at the Monaco Grand Prix will have fallen below expectations.

    In fact, given the hype-machine, nothing less than a win should be acceptable. :popcorn:

    Well, on a positive note at least Max is consistent... it's just in the wrong areas.

    We had a lovely day out, if not a bit humid, got in and fast forwarded qualifying to the last 6 minutes and then went about my day. Stupid circuit, pointless race.

    Superb lap by Ricciardo. Good luck to him tomorrow. As per Max, it's 6 races in a row that he crashes. He needs a shrink.

    He's just a kid. There's no substitute for years - not even GP starts - and he proves it. He'll figure it out in time.

    Galahad He had better figure out soon because I think Red Bull might be start wondering did we bag our eggs in the wrong basket. Usually the Red Bull production line as a string of drivers ready to take over so it wont be long they start discussing the pairing should be Sainz and Gasly

    I thought what Ricciardo said was telling that at Monaco you can't overdrive the car. Now Verstappen binned quiet badly at Monaco twice

    Il_leone you have to wonder. We know its likely that red bull will lose a driver in 2019. Now will they think that Verstappen is just too hassle for the worth. Will keep the consistency & depenable Riccardio his new contract. Verstappen would be wanted at mercedes maybe ferrari, but i think leclerc has jumped him in the queue replacing kimi
