Part of that, though, is that Monaco is not a track that you can make contact with someone without disastrous results - see LeClerc's day. Some tracks you can stick the nose of the car under someone and then fight it out through the corner. A lot of street tracks, particularly Monaco, trying to fight out the corner puts someone into a wall.

Either the course needs to be twice as wide or the cars need to be half as wide, lol. Indycar at Long Beach has the same problem, it tends to just be a crashfest, something I really don't enjoy watching. Canada strikes me as being a little wider.

Another F1 driver wants to try a MotoGP bike.

"Charles Leclerc says he wants to try riding a MotoGP bike in future after visiting the Italian GP at Mugello on Sunday." :https://racer.com/2019/06/05/leclerc...-motogp-visit/

He got to see a really sensational race. 220 mph on the main straight. Exciting from beginning to end. First time MotoGP winner. Here is a 10 minute condensed version:

He just wants to ride a MotoGP bike, not leave Ferrari and race one.

When Max Verstappen wanted to try riding a MotoGP bike last year, his F1 team, Red Bull, said no.

Excellent qualifying by Vettel. I would like to see a Ferrari 1-2 tomorrow.

The Canadian response team is useless.

Magnussen is such a jerk. I am glad Steiner reprimanded him.

I think someone needs to reprimand the stewards.

Does Formula 1 really just want to driver's to play follow the leader all race? Let them race already. Most of the time it seems whoever comes out of the first turn in the first lap is the winner. Might as well turn off the tv after the first turn.

Vettel made another mistake, he makes a lot of them, and this one cost him the win. Say what you want about the stewards' ruling, it was Vettel's mistake which started the whole thing.

It was a racing incident, nothing more. IMO the stewards screwed the pooch.
