    Yes, with the Tyre tets that Mercedes did.

    Have to like Horners commeent "It didn' hurt them too much, as they are on the front row" or words to that effect.

    Shame I must have missed the silver car on pole position for the 3 races before the tyre test.

    I can understand why Pierelli might want to use the Merceds to test the tyres as they are one of the teams hardest on the tyres. So if they hold up well with a car that chews tyres they should work well on cars who are lighter on the tyres.

    Though with the Red Flag, Di Resta is a winner as well. As he along with the rest of the field gets a free pit-stop.

    Grosjean really is an idiot. That's like four crashes this weekend or so for him, right?

    Yet another SC, yet another chance for Fingerboy to steal/ruin the race.

    Well deserved for Rosberg! Shame that Vettel is starting to pull away in the championship again, and that Red Bull mugged Hamilton of a podium, but decent result for Mercedes nonetheless.

    If I were Lotus, I might consider dropping Gorsjean for next year. Whilst he hasn't been as bad as last year, he still needs to not crash as often.

    Yes all the drivers have they idiot moments but still

    Yet another Monaco snoozefest. I know that Monaco is still on the calendar because that's where all the schmoozing gets done and where the rich people throw the cash around, but it's been a useless circuit for a long time.

    At least Kimi was on form. Love that guy!

    Enjoyed Rosberg's win, but wasn't impressed with Grosjean's antics. There'll come a time when he's going to hurt someone...

    Kimi taking 3 places on the last lap was unbelievable. :eek:

    Well Grosjean has already had a one race ban last season, I suspect too many more incidents might incur another race ban if not something like a 3 race ban.

    I find it funny that Red Bull even bothered whining about the Merc tyre test in the first place, given that they've used plenty of tricks themselves in the past to get more running time (e.g. when they had FOUR OF THE SAME CAR, albeit with two different engine manufacturers and teams running them). RB are nothing but serial cheaters clutching at straws trying to find excuses to say 'HEY LOOK OTHER PEOPLE CHEAT AS WELL NOT JUST US LOL'. Assholes.

    Merc may have cheated, but Red Bull aren't in any position to complain.

    except they haven't cheated in this instance, so they are in a position to complain.

    Well, they CAN complain, you're right, but it does make them hypocrites.
